The Experience

Your portrait art experience begins with the pre-session design consultation by phone.  During the consultation, we will discuss clothing specifics, props and backgrounds, location choices, and what to expect in general.  The pre-session design consultation is our first chance to get to know your family.  Custom portraiture is very personal and the better we know you and your children, the better our results will be.

Upon booking, you will receive access to our private Client areas through our website which will provide even more information regarding clothing choices, helpful hints, and more.  We want you to feel as prepared and relaxed as possible and we know from experience that it starts with great communication!  Being able to have this information at your fingertips is a great start to a fabulous session.

Get ready for a fun, playful session!  We will work patiently capturing images to reach our goal.  When children are involved, we let them set the pace and will never force them to smile, pose, or go beyond their comfort level.  Newborns require extended time for feedings and soothing, and we never try to rush those sessions. Our High School Seniors usually fill a few hours with excitement as we tune our speakers to their favorites and pretend to be models for the day. We are known for our patience and professional attitude.  Whether your child is outgoing and energetic or shy and soft spoken, we have endless amounts of patience and will capture the true essence of who they really are.  Vanessa and her assistant will balance quiet expressions with silly belly laughs for a variety of natural personality-filled looks.

Within a few short days, your images will be ready to view at your scheduled in studio Ordering Session.  There our Portrait Consultant will present you with your gallery of images in our cozy boutique studio.  We will assist you through the design process so you are thrilled with your selected images and excited about  displaying your heirloom quality art pieces for generations to come.

Your images will then be printed on gorgeous professional papers, canvas, albums, and other art mediums.  Vanessa has tested numerous labs and has chosen only those with the best reputations for color, quality, and excellence.  You will be thrilled with the luxurious look and feel of your finished pieces!

With every step in the Vanessa G. Photography experience, we want you to feel like a special part of our family.  We look forward to getting to know you!
