ECLC Portrait Session Event

Fine Art School Portraits is coming to ECLC for a special weekend event!  Just in time for Mother's Day gifts! 

Fine Art School Portraits provides a fresh and classic update to a studio style portrait with a boutique ordering experience. I use a classic black background, natural light and easy and fun interaction with your children. No more cheesy backgrounds, harsh studio lights, and props. By removing distracting elements in the background the focus is on the child. The result is an artistic and classic portrait that will withstand the test of time. This very simple studio setup is also very inclusive for children with disabilities.

Need an updated family portrait?  I am also offering Mini Family Portrait Sessions.  Receive a photo of the family, the siblings together, and each individual child. Mom and Grandma will be thrilled to have beautiful portraits of their family for Mother's Day.

How do I purchase and choose my photos? You don't pay for the session time and are not obligated to buy! Ordering is simple. Families are linked to a password-protected online ordering gallery. Each child/family will be provided with 2-5 images, presented in both color and black and white. Purchase your whole gallery or just one photo! All ordering and payments are done online for ease and convenience. I provide boutique product choices such as canvas gallery wraps, digital images for future printing and archiving, along with prints of various sizes. 

I also give back 10% of my profits back to your school!

What should we wear? Below I've included wardrobe do's and don't's:

  1.  Fine Art Child Portraits are photographed from your child's chest up so you don't have to worry about matching shoes! Family portraits are photographed from the knees up.
  2.  Clothing to avoid: 
  • Avoid graphics and logos on shirts. They detract from your child's adorable face.
  • Avoid neon colors. Also distracting. 
  • Please no hoodies

3. Clothing that works well:

  • Shirts with details around the collar and shoulders such as bow ties, suspenders, overalls, peter pan collars, and ruffles around the shoulder. See Pinterest Board below for examples. 
  • Make sure your child is comfortable! If they dislike what they are wearing their discomfort will show in their photos. It can help to give them a choice between 2-3 outfits you like. 
  • Natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, and wool photograph beautifully. Details in their clothing such as accent stitches, buttons, and ribbons also look great.
  • For girls braids and pigtails always photograph well and will help you remember a time they had little girl hair :)
  • For family portraits go HERE for family wardrobe advice

"We have 3 children (ages 4.5 and 3 year old twins). Emily took the most gorgeous pictures of all three. She captured their personalities perfectly and they were stunning." -Jess River-Bethel
