The struggle is real! The photographer search begins. You need to do a family session because it’s been 3 years. You know a co-worker from work knows a girl. And your best friend from high school has a photography business. Yelp gave you a handful of highly rated professionals… With endless choices, why choose Studio 220 for your family portraits?
We Capture Genuine Moments & True Emotions
We believe that a single photograph can capture all of the emotion you feel when you look at your daughter as you tuck her into bed. Or what if looking at a photo of your son at the age of 7 (with that awful haircut and mischievous grin) could take you back to an entire season of his childhood? Of all the things you invest in when it comes to your family, is there anything more valuable than capturing this moment in time for you to forever remember all that it meant to you? We think not!
We Help You Find Your Why
Let’s start here. Why do you want to hire a photographer? Are you looking to get your holiday card out to 200 swooning friends and family? Or perhaps you’re looking to capture all of you; the smiles, the tears, the holiday card and the epic outtakes. Maybe you want to capture what your everyday life looks like through a lifestyle focused session (LOVE these)! Whether more traditional or no holds barred is your thing, we are crazy about story-telling and would love to capture your family’s life. Whatever story you want told we will capture and bring these images to life, which leads us into our next why…
Your Family. Your Story.
One more reason to choose Studio 220 is that we are committed to building lifelong relationships with our clients. As a result we are passionate about getting to know you and capturing that in imagery. To do this we simply ask questions. In addition to providing you endless resources to plan and prepare for your session, we will also ask for you to engage in the process. What makes your family sing? What do you do with a day off together. And perhaps our favorite, what does every day look like?
We Are Fun!
Need we say more! We are a team of artists who love kids, story-telling and photography! Because of this you will have no other choice then to have fun right along with us! In addition, we have a few tricks up our sleeve to make the whole group as excited as they would be for the tilt-a-whirl, cotton candy and unicorns!
We Offer Fail Proof Planning Resources To Each of Our Clients
We know that preparing for your portraits can be flat out painful. Styling, scheduling, shopping, and all that goes into a session. Even knowing the end result would make it worth it, you collectively mourn the coming of your yearly portraits (are we right?). That is why we have everything covered from day 1!
Pre-Session Planning Consultation: Our portrait team is crazy about setting you up for success. We offer a complimentary planning consultation in studio or over the phone to discuss everything from outfits to timelines. In order for this to be a connected experience that results in genuine moments during your shoot we want to get to know your family’s unique story so we can best capture it. We’ve crafted a pre-session workflow that includes a planning guide, clothing tips and tricks, questionnaires to hear your wishes and hopes. All-in-all you will be totally set up for a successful shoot!
The Guided Artwork Experience: We invite each our clients to the studio for a same day (or same week) viewing party. That’s right, it’s a party! The juice boxes will be flowing, the music playing and Kleenex waiting. Rather than viewing your images for the first time on your smart phone we want you to take in the emotion of your images. Let’s be clear: This is NOT a sales session. This is us bringing your portrait experience full circle. Using our professional skills and services to guide you through the “what now”.
Stress Free Sessions: Let’s be honest, the stress levels skyrocket to all new levels the day of your yearly session! Your family portraits can be a downright near root canal experience. Who wants to sign up for that? A huge part of our training and innate skill set is loving and working with families in the best and worst of conditions. Tantrums, runny noses, the kid you can’t actually get a photo of with his feet planted on the ground… yeah, we’ve seen it all. No matter how your family performs we will make sure you are enjoying the session and everyone leaves happy. Can you imagine?!?
No Session Fees: We really just said that! You’re not paying to hang out with a photographer for an hour, why should we charge you for that? Instead, you’re investing in capturing memories of this moment in time and documenting it through heirloom pieces of art.
Endless Product Options: You’ve had an incredible experience with your photographer, now let’s make it last by creating heirloom pieces of art that are customized to meet your specific needs. Nothing you don’t want, everything you must have! We have searched high and low for the latest, greatest in product offerings. To name a few, we offer: Canvas, Metal Prints, Albums, Framed and Mounted Prints, gifts, and of course, Digital Files. So there you have it! You want it, we got it!
100% Satisfaction Guarantee: Our number one goal is building lasting relationships with each of our clients. We want to see you this year and for years to come. If your experience is anything less than excellent we will offer a complimentary re-shoot. We know photography is an investment and we want it to be one that you consider “worth every single penny”. It really comes down to caring about our clients and taking care of them. It’s as simple as that!
