The Experience


Jarrod and I would love to make your entire portrait session with us unlike any other. From the moment you arrive in our home for your creative consultation appointment to the moment you hang your portraits on the wall, we aim to make your time with us personable, straightforward, and effortless. Let us do all the thinking and planning to create the perfect portrait experience for you. We believe that documentation of the important times in your life is crucial so having someone who can go with you throughout the entire experience is a luxury that we take pride in. I would love to be able to help you choose which portraits would look best on your walls. We can cull down your images together and choose the perfect combination for your home and family. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to make this journey easier for you, please feel free to reach out as we are here for you.


The Creative Appointment


The creative appointment is key when designing your portrait session. Firstly I love meeting new people, my mom used to say when I was a little girl that I never met a stranger, and I’m still that way to this day. I would love to get to know you and your family, and the vision you have for your session. We can talk about what you like and what your children like and we can create a session that will be uniquely yours. I typically like to book creative appointments a few weeks or months before the portrait session so I can have plenty of time to plan and coordinate your session to your ideas so we can create the timeless portraits you’ll cherish forever.


The Portrait Session


This is where all the fun happens. We will tell you how to pose in a comfortable manner to make you look like you were meant for modeling. Also by this point we will already be good friends and you can tell me when I haven’t put you on your “good side”. I want you to feel comfortable because I know how awkward posing for portraits can be, but that’s what I’m here for. I’m never just the photographer, but more like the dress fluffer, hair dresser, shirt straitner, boutineer pinner, whatever the session may be or whatever you may need I’m there for you!


The Viewing and Ordering Session


Now it is time for everyone’s favorite part! Viewing your images together on a tv screen is so moving and I know if I see tears that means I did my job right! I will show you the enhanced images and I will personally help you choose the right artwork for your home, which will make the hard decision making a breeze. Generally it takes anywhere from four to six weeks for all the artwork to be ready to go home, depending on the size of the order. I can only hope when you have your portraits in hand that you can look back over the experience with us and be so happy you chose Heather Black Photography and I hope to see you again in the future.
