Preparing for Your Session
Your clothing should be a reflection of you, but there are a few do's and don'ts. Pick colors that work for you and feel free to bring more clothes than you'll need. Your photographer can assist you if you're not sure what will work best. As a general rule, avoid plaids and prints, as they appear busy. During a regular half-hour session, you can do two different outfits, so you may want to consider bringing one casual outfit and one a bit more formal, in order to maximize your variety.
Hair should be cut several days prior to the photo session so it looks natural. Bring brushes, clips, hair products or whatever you will need for the style(s) you want. Men - unless you are looking for the rough uncut look, a clean shave is a must.
Feel free to bring your own props or any special, personalized or sentimental items to use in the photographs. Your photographer can assist in how to incorporate them into the pictures.
Think about what kind of portraits you're wanting and come ready to share your preferences with your photographer. Do you prefer lighter or darker backgrounds? Posed or candid shots? Traditional or dramatic lighting? If you're even considering jumping in a few of the portraits, come prepared by bringing clothing for yourself. (Trust us, you'll be glad you did!) And if all of these options overwhelm you, don't worry; leave it to your professional photographer and you'll be pleased with the results!
The Experience is as Simple as 1-2-3
Upon arrival, you will have a consultation with your photographer to discuss the session and go over any important details.
This is your opportunity to tell us about your desires and preferences. You will have a 30-minute portrait session in the camera room. You may use two different outfits, one of which can be from our complimentary Portrait Clothing Collection. We will do a variety of poses and will take as many pictures as necessary in order to provide you with 20-25 beautiful images.
Relax while we make your images beautiful! Go shopping or grab a quick bite for 30 minutes while we edit your photos.
This will allow us to create the Lasting Expressions difference. Unlike department store photography that is simply shot and placed before you for selection, our artistic photographers will transform your portraits into beautiful keepsakes you will love and adore for years to come. If you're coming back another day to select the portraits, simply schedule what works best for you!
Review & Select Your Portraits.
When you return you will see your portraits in a touching slideshow set to music! This has brought tears of joy to many moms and dads. Your photographic artist will assist you with your portrait selections using one of our wide screen monitors. The images are then instantly sent to our photo-processing lab where they are printed in minutes for you to take home!
The best investment you make in life is your family.
Every day is a gift, every kiss is treasured, and every moment goes by quicker than the last. Here at Lasting Expressions we count it a joy and a blessing to be able to capture these memories with the skill and artistry of photography. You are not just purchasing pictures, but true art. Portraiture of your loved ones is one of the few investments that will grow in value in the years to come.
Our average client usually invests about $350
But there are several options above and below that price range and we work with each client to determine what will best suit their needs. We do not believe in high-pressure or commission-based sales and therefore treat each client as we would like to be treated. One of our experienced photographers will review the options with you on the day you view your timeless images. Whether you are looking for a magnificent fine art canvas or a simple artistic print, we can assist you in selecting portraits that will meet the décor of your home. While some specialty items may require additional time, several print options are available for same-day purchase.
Our Happiness Guarantee
We believe that portraits should tell a story, recall a special memory and bring a warm smile to your face. It is our goal to create those images for you along with an industry leading 100% no-risk guarantee that we will do everything we can to make that happen. Within 30 days, if for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your portraits, we will:
Reprint your photographs.
If the prints are not to your liking, we will gladly make adjustments and reprint them.
Retake your photographs.
Don't worry if your little one has a bad day!
