Portraits that are more than just a picture
|My mother always tells me how she tried to provide good memories for us growing up. I have fond memories of our TV nights, laying on the couch and eating home-made Rice Krispy treats right out of the bowl. I remember how she'd take a whole loaf of bread, make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and put them back in the bread bag, whenever we'd go on a road trip. I wish we had more great photos to go with those great memories. Ma took plenty of pictures of us growing up, but sometimes they were blurry or the moment was missed (sorry Ma). We have a professional photos from chain studio portraits. They are nice & sometimes cheesy but they don't tell you anything about us or our lives. Imagine having great photos of your family's favorite activity, whether it's story time, baking cookies or a trip to the playground. Or maybe, you'd like a Kardashian style portrait where your family is dressed to the nines. You can have both beautiful and fun family portraits that will create special memories.|
One thing that sets me apart from other Atlanta family photographers is the experience I provide, which I highlight below.
The ImagesbyN'neka Experience
All the details will be taken care of during the consultation. We'll create the vision for your portraits and plan the date & time, location, clothing. I'll show you a variety of ways to display your portraits as artwork, from timeless classics like framed portraits to modern displays like acrylic or coffee table books. There is no need to worry about whether or not you will like your portraits because I will do everything thing I can to make sure you love them or you will be refunded.
|Your portrait session can take place at your home, park, your favorite hangout spot or my photography studio in Atlanta, wherever you feel most comfortable. Destination portraits at the beach, mountains or beyond are also a great option! The only thing you have to do during your portrait session is relax, be yourself and have a great time. We have plenty of time during an hour or so photo session. You don't have to worry about trying to get your child to cooperate and smile during a 15 minute mini-session. I incorporate a lot of natural expressions and poses, so your personality shines through without having to try. And you will look your very best, free of any blemishes, because natural retouching is included.|
|"I honestly had a blast......... Actually we both had a blast. It was soo much fun!! And to think he enjoyed it. Who wouldve thought. The pictures just made me smile and laugh. They are awesome. You truly captured the moment. I dont know what we were smiling or laughing about in one of those photos but it makes me re-live that moment. |
Your Portrait Artwork
Holiday cards and digital files to share on social media are great keepsakes for now. But will they stand the test of time? I include custom framing or museum quality canvas on all prints larger than an 8x10. Or you can choose hand bound albums or coffee table books that showcase your family's personality. Your portraits will become custom artwork that is designed to last a lifetime. Soon they'll be an heirloom to leave to your children or grandchildren. My best sellers are framed portraits and books, which start at $400.
PricingChoose from two portrait experiences.
Portrait sessions are $300.
All portrait sessions include the Custom Portrait design consultation; my time and talent; a 1 hour photo session at the location of your choice; unlimited exposures during the session to document you and your family’s personality and relationship; and an ordering appointment to view and purchase your portraits.
Signature Portrait sessions are $500 and include all of the above plus;
All prints, digital files and products are purchased separately during your Ordering appointment. For the most savings, you have the option to pre-purchase your artwork and receive a studio credit.
Excited about the possibilities?
If you're thinking this sounds great, go ahead and click that book now button below. We'll schedule a consultation to plan your family photos. If, during the consultation it's not a great fit, I'll refund the session fee. I'll be honest. I talk to a lot of people who want family portraits but never got around to it. They always regret not capturing memories when their kids were younger. You will never get this time back so go ahead and invest in your family legacy.
DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?
Yes. I have a beautiful indoor/outdoor daylight studio located at The Goat Farm in Midtown. With tall ceilings, floor to ceiling brick walls and plenty of outdoor locations, this character filled studio is not you average backdrop and prop shop. Click here to see a photo session taken at my studio.
DO YOU USE PROPS? WHAT KIND OF BACKGROUNDS DO YOU HAVE?
I don't use props or themed backgrounds. I prefer the focus of my sessions to be all about you and your interaction with your loved ones. Rather than props or backgrounds, I prefer to shoot on location in a setting that is meaningful to you. In twenty years this will say more about you than an artificial item I may have in my studio. Of course, you are encouraged to bring personal items of significance to your session.
CAN YOU HELP ME CHOOSE A LOCATION?
Yes, I have a list of recommended locations all over metro Atlanta. We will discuss the portrait consultation. Please see the Portrait Process for more details.
CAN YOU RECOMMEND A MAKEUP ARTIST?
Yes, I know several, good makeup artists. If you would like to use one, I can make all the arrangements for you. You will need to allow an hour for makeup. Their fee is not included and will be an add-on to your portrait session.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I SCHEDULE A SESSION?
Portrait sessions generally require 2 weeks notice but cannot be scheduled more than 8 weeks in advance. Portrait Collections may be scheduled up to 8 weeks in advance. Please inquire if you have a specific event for which you want to insure my availability.
DO YOU OFFER PACKAGES?
Yes, I offer "create your on collections" which allow you to get up to a 30% savings when bundling products together. My portrait collections are designed to offer the best value while allowing the most flexibility. Best of all, you get to choose exactly what you want without being locked into purchasing products you don't need. Inquire for more details.
HOW MUCH IS AN 8X10?
Gift Prints, 8x10 and smaller, are not the focus of my studio and are only available with a collection, wall art or album purchase. An 8x10 portrait is $75 or less depending on which Portrait Collection you choose.
CAN YOU COME TO MY EVENT AND TAKE PORTRAITS OF MY GUESTS TO SELL?
I offer a variety of event photography including candid coverage as well as portraits of attendees; however I do not shoot on speculation. My fees must be paid in advance to allow for adequate staffing and equipment for your event. If you'd like to offer your guests the option of purchasing portraits, the cost should be included in the registration fee or as an optional add-on which is paid in advance of the event. Please call to discuss the logistics of how this may work.
DO YOU OFFER ANY SPECIALS OR DISCOUNTS?
Occasionally. Please sign up for my newsletter when you inquire and like my Facebook page to find out about any specials that may be offered.
