You know you need updated family portraits but what are you going to do with them? At MMP we begin with the finish line in sight, which means, before Melissa ever picks up the camera, we have a plan for where and how these photos will hang in your home or the story we want to tell in your family album. Do you have an empty, tall space above your fireplace? Melissa will create an amazing image to hang there. Perhaps you want to start a family gallery incorporating images from previous years with the new portraits you are commissioning. We can make that happen. Are you moving soon or live in a house with no wall space? Telling your family’s story in a luxurious, custom-designed album lets you capture and preserve this stage of your children’s lives. Your unique needs and concerns will guide your one-on-one Consultation with Melissa.
An initial consultation with Melissa jump starts the MMP Process. Melissa wants the latest and greatest on your family and kids. What are their personalities like? Who’s the comedian, who’s the rebel? Understanding your family dynamics allows her to capture their personalities and their relationships as they really are.
Your every question will be answered, including:
* What types of clothing photograph best.
* A full understanding of the investment you’ll be making.
* The most suitable areas of your home for your family portraits.
* And other burning questions such as whether or not to bring the family pet (the answer is, “yes!”)
If you’ve had your family photographed in the past, you might remember that it can be (the teeniest bit) stressful. Dad’s not on board... the kids didn’t nap... or maybe someone's just not in a social mood. Not to worry. As the mother of two under the age of 5 Melissa is familiar with all types of kid shenanigans. If you can get them dressed and get to the studio, Melissa will handle the rest. Warning: Don't be surprise if your kids don't want to leave when the session is over because we've been having so much fun!
Approximately one week after your photo session, you will meet Melissa at the studio for your Proofing and Ordering appointment. Your Proofing and Ordering appointment is the time set aside to finalize your portrait order, so be sure and schedule a time when both mom and dad (and any other decision maker) can be there.
Using our state-of-the-art software and photos of the walls in your home, Melissa will show your portraits scaled onto your walls, which solves the problem of what size to order; not too big, not too small, but just right!
Melissa will guide you every step of the way using your goals from the initial consultation to achieve your vision for your family portraits.
Most of our clients prefer to have their portraits hand-delivered to their homes and some even request we install their new wall art.
About 4-6 weeks after your order has been placed, your portraits will be delivered. If you wish to have them installed as well, we can make those arrangements prior to delivery. Let us handle the heavy lifting and hanging.
And now, the hard part is over. Your portraits are joyfully displayed on the walls of your home. Your family album has a seat of pride on your coffee table and you are receiving message after message about the heartwarming beauty of your holiday cards. Sit back and take praise for creating those beautiful humans that are your children and enjoy seeing the people you love on the walls of your home. Every. Single. Day.
We are thrilled that your portraits are hung on your walls with care, and you now have the opportunity to enjoy your heirloom wall art daily. But, we also know that no matter how hard we try to avoid it, those kids will just keep growing and changing, so what about next year, and the year after that?
Our portraits and collections are designed to look good now AND be able to move throughout your home as we add to your family art collection over time. Whether you decided to add wall art every year or just on those special occasions, we are honored to be your Fine Art Portraiture Concierge.
