Since 2007, Willow Studio has been providing the Metro Detroit area with a unique approach to family and newborn portraits. Guided by a need to capture the fleeting moments of baby-ness and childhood, we've created a portrait experience like no other. Beth draws from her 18 years of work with infants and small children to put your whole family at ease and create a fun and relaxed session, resulting in real and authentic moments.
Planning a portrait session can be overwhelming. What to wear, the fear of cranky children, insecurities, location, inclement weather, and most importantly, choosing a photographer. If this sounds like you, then you are a perfect fit for the ultimate experience. Once you choose me as your photographer, I step in and help with all of those daunting tasks on the portrait session to-do list. The ultimate experience provides you with a custom, high quality, less-stress service that you'll love.
To ensure you receive the highest level of service for your custom portraits, we'll set up 4 different appointments for your session.
The Consultation: This is the planning stage, where we hash out all the details. I'll ask some questions to get to know you and your families preferences. We will decide on a location, talk about wardrobe and important images you'd like to have. Then we'll discuss what you'd like to do with your images. Here's where some people may ask "Can I just get the digital images?" (Sure, of course you can!) But we have found that many clients who only receive their images digitally, never display their images. We want your family to be celebrated and cherished as they deserve to be. We'll look over albums, wall art, photoblocks and traditional prints together so we can pick your very favorite way to display your images.
The Session: All sessions will take place at the location of your choice. Since we believe that you can't rush authentic moments (or toddlers for that matter), there is no set time limit but we do try to keep the sessions under an hour. Beth will work efficiently but purposefully.
The Selection and Ordering Appointment: This is the very best one! We finally get to view and fall in love with your images. We'll meet up for coffee or I'll come by your home to provide you with a slideshow of your images and then we'll be able to view them one by one. I use a wonderful program on my iPad that will allow us to choose favorites and see samples of the images on your own wall. Then we'll review all of your favorite images and design your album, gallery wall and other prints. All decision makers of the household should attend this appointment.
Delivery: 4-8 weeks after the ordering appointment your art work will be finished and ready to be delivered to your hands. We will hand deliver at your convenience and help with installation if desired.
