Don’t let another year slip away…
If you’re even thinking about a photo session on the beach in here in Rhode Island, now is the time to contact us and put it on the calendar.
You know in your heart if the time is right, so call and let’s create some magic together!
I have to say that photographing this beautiful family earned the word “divine” for me. I was happy to be able to give them exactly or pretty darn close to what they needed. Not only were they the sweetest and blessed family, they were up for anything, ready, able and willing. Plus, the crazy gorgeous dresses came in on time, and it was the perfect weather night on the beach with very little wind. They were so easy to work with and a beach location was perfect for them to bring to life our vision of a photo wall collage. The location was Green Hill Beach in South County and the timing was scheduled for that “magic hour” just before sunset spilling over into the dreamy light at the beach just after the sun goes over the horizon. Ahhhhh. Love ….
In our design consultation I learned that this adorable family had been on a cruise vacation, and had some great studio portraits taken on the ship.
Beautiful black and white portraits were taken of the whole family, mom & dad, the two girls separately and together. The images were available printed on metal, which happened to be a new product I was currently in the process of adding to my price menu.
Here’s the glitch …
The policy was this: Unless the portraits were paid for on the ship, they weren’t available for purchase.
After that. Gone. Good bye. Left at sea.
Of course, we don’t always travel with our plastic do we? Well, you guessed it, that was the case here. So the purchase couldn’t be made at sea and this family left these valuable images on that ship forevermore only to be remembered in their minds.
Heart breaking for me to hear, but I do understand policy and the reasoning behind it.
So, when we designed our session, my intention was to recreate what had been lost at sea, aaaaand make it even better in some way.
We worked together to design a photo wall in their newly renovated family room with a collage of metal prints choosing color instead of black & white this time because of the dresses, the scenery and the colors in the room where the display would hang.
It all worked out to our advantage and the result of this beach session was captivating, lovely imagery marking a special time in their lives.
All is well with the world
And that’s a wrap!
