Because they grow up so fast....
Children are life's precious gifts. Capture these moments and hold on to them forever through professional portraits. For over 20 years, we've been creating unique and artistic portraits of children while capturing their innocence and spirit. Creating timeless portraits that you absolutely will love that will stand the test of time is what we strive to do.
Two new series designed just for children. We have sets for those who are looking for elegant, timeless portraits and for those who would like casual, fun portraits of your children. Check out our new blog to get more information about both of the portrait series: http://blog.thestudioonmain.com
Your portrait experience begins with your complimentary consultation where we plan your session. We talk about what YOU envision your portrait to be. Clothing, background choices and posing possibilities are discussed to ensure you get the portrait you've always dreamed of owning.
We want you to be totally satisfied with your portrait and experience. We're so confident that you will be that we guarantee it. If you are not happy we'll fix it, retake your session or refund your money to you.
The Natural Light Experience
Have you ever wondered why our portraits look the way they do when compared to other studios? It is our use of natural light. Our studio is one of the largest natural light studios in the country. Natural light provides a quality of lighting that is unmatched by flash photography (which is what most other studios use for their lighting). Combined with the knowledge and experience of an award winning Master Photographer, the result is one that is technically and artistically superior. Experience the difference!
Watch Me Grow Infant Portrait Program
The Watch Me Grow program is designed to give new parents a way to get quality, artistic portraits of their child during his/her first year of life. Many people in the program have opted to start the first session with a pregnancy portrait. Prepaying for the Watch Me Grow sessions has proven to be a great gift for expecting parents too! Members of the watch me grow program also take advantage of significant savings by enjoying a 50% discount every time they order!
How does the program work?
There are several program options available. The basic plan starts with a $125 session fee which gives you 4 in-studio sessions over a one year period of time. Portrait packages are offered at 40% off regular portrait prices! At the end of the session those who complete the program are given a free family session and 8x10 portrait. There are also album and gallery wrap collage or wall grouping options available as well. Click HERE for program options
At the end of the programs many parents have found it beneficial to continue with the Portrait History Album First Year and/or Growing Years program.
Recommended times to be photographed
We realize children grow and develop at different stages. The beauty of this program is YOU choose when you would like your child photographed. You schedule your appointments when your child has reached a particular milestone. We also encourage parents to bring in props that are special - the family heirloom or favorite toy. In the past, parents have used these times as a general guideline to having their child photographed:
Newborn - 8 weeks (snuggling or sleeping pose)
3-4 months (holding his/her head up)
6-7 months (sitting up)
8-10 months (standing next to a chair)
1 year (standing on their own)
Portrait History Album - The Growing Years
This program is typically purchased as an add-on to the Watch Me Grow program and spans over a longer period of time than The First Year program. It gives you 8 in-studio sessions for only $250. Those continuing the Watch Me Grow program only pay a $200 session fee. The same Watch me grow discounts of 50% off also apply when ordering portraits from your session. Ideal times to be photographed are 18 months, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, and 16 years.
The Growing Years Portrait Program
The Growing Years program is designed to give parents a way to get quality, artistic portraits of your child as he or she child grows. Many people have continued this program after completing the Watch Me Grow program.
How does the program work?
This program spans over a much longer period of time than the Watch Me Grow and the First Year programs. It includes an album with 8 in-studio sessions for only $250 to use before your child is 17 years old. Those continuing The First Year Program only pay a $200 session fee.
