How does this work?
Once you have decided on your Romance Session (Persona Session for the men in our lives), we will book your own private session. We will then discuss any questions that you may have, don’t worry, everybody has them! We will also go over the entire process most people just do not know what to expect when having formal portrait work created especially something as special as a Romance Session. We have made the process fun and exciting.
Don’t worry about taking copious notes! just be sure to check your email as we will send you our detailed guides on everything from Wardrobe to Investment. We don’t want you to be surprised at any aspect! If you are not sure about something then just ask, by phone or be e-mail, rest assured, somebody else has had the same question.
We offer portrait sizes starting at 8×10 and go all the way up from there, please note, due to the work involved and nature of our Romance Portraits these start at 16×20.
You will also receive our wardrobe guide and personal questionnaire and direct link to our investment pages.
Please take the time to look these over and even daydream as you complete and send back the ‘Getting to know you guide’ , in the end I wish to provide you with a truly unique Romance Story. The information provided here will allow us to create a custom tailored experience for you.
All of our sessions are by appointment only. This is done so that we can focus on you! No waiting in line, no group casting calls. Weather in studio or at a location of your choice you are our priority! Yes, we have a private studio location in beautiful Bixby Knolls district of Long Beach CA. We are also happy to come to you where ever your favorite location may be. (additional fee’s may apply).
When you arrive to our candle lit studio, please give us a quick ring and we will be delighted to help you with your bags, wardrobe, and anything else that you may bring along. This is your day, we will do the work and lifting, as we guide you to our studio.
Once inside, have a seat, relax, we will get you a refreshment as we know all about L.A. Driving. Our makeup artist will begin your make over as you can unwind. At this time we will discuss any last minute questions that you may have. It is okay, everybody has them.
Once your makeover is complete, we will move onto your creative session. Selecting your wardrobe, cover our posing techniques, again this turns out to be more fun than anything as I will demonstrate all poses.
We will spend all the time that is needed to create amazing images for you. This time is for you, most sessions last about 2 hours just so that you may plan, we are happy to take all the time that is needed to ensure that you will have a choice 30 wonderful images to select from.
Once your session concludes we have a numerous wonderful restaurants, wine bars and boutique shops in the area as many of our clients like to make an afternoon or evening out. We will be happy to guide you to our personal favorites.
Once your session concludes, We will schedule your Premier generally in about 1 week, and our work begins.
During this period we will prepare your images and if requested, create your Romance or Persona work. This work is done by hand, and is done using my own creative vision and methods. It is this artistry that sets my work apart from rest of the market. For work of this detail time is required, but our clients find this period very exciting. As we like to say, ‘What will your story tell?’.
On the evening of your premier session, you will come back to our studio, relax in our super comfortable pillow sofa, and will get to see the Premier of work created just for you all set to music. Just sit back and relax and just enjoy your show. After the premier we will then be able to go back and choose your absolute favorites! Please remember to bring anybody who will be involved in helping you choose at this time. Due to the personal and private service that we give to each and every client we can only include 1 premier session with your booking.
By making your selections this evening you can also receive up to 30% off of your custom package. We are asked why we do not offer packages, and our experience is that most people do not need or want everything in a ‘Made for Everybody’ package. For this reason you get to select exactly what you would like, and our investment plan makes savings very simple in only purchasing what you love, and by providing additional discounts for selecting multiple items, as little as 2 in many cases. You will also have the opportunity to see first hand the quality of our Mounted Prints, Memory Boxes and Romance Portraits during your visit to our studio.
We provide a full array of fine art prints including Contemporary Metal Prints, Museum Gallery Wraps and Classic Fine Art Prints, and a full range of framing options. To make selections options easier we use state of the art imaging software and will show you for favorite image selections in your own home before you purchase. Its as easy as taking a cell phone picture!
Once you have made your selections and completed payment, your orders will be immediately submitted, at this time there can be no further changes. In about 3-4 weeks your selections will then be ready for you to take home and be proudly displayed.
