Your Portrait Investment
Firstly, why call it an "investment", and not "price"?
The answer is simple. Because in five, ten, twenty or even 100 years from now, your beautiful portraits will be priceless. Can you imagine how much your loved ones will love looking at the real you? How do you feel when you find that treasured photo of your parents or grandparents? How do you want to be remembered?
Your bespoke portrait session - Your entire portrait experience is customised to you.
Together, you and I will plan the look, feel, styling and experience that you want to have. You can include in your photoshoot your partner, family members, pets, wider family and friends. You may wish to include some business images for your LinkedIn profile, company website or shareholder report. You can even have your passport photograph taken!
Your viewing and ordering appointment
Your products will also be custom made for you, so you choose how much you want to spend.
I will bring the best portraits from your photoshoot, all fully edited, finished, printed and matted. Your portraits will be printed on to 100% cotton rag unless we have agreed beforehand that you would like to have more texture in the final edits. You get to choose which portraits you would like to keep there and then. There will be no ‘hard sell’ involved. You just choose which photos you love and want to keep in your beautifully crafted walnut folio box.
Your beautiful fine art portraits deserve to be presented in the most gorgeous way. My clients love the stylish, luxurious, and boutique feel of their Folio Box. They are blown away that their precious memories are kept safe in their walnut treasure chest. Nearly every portrait client invests in their portraits through my Walnut Folio Box.
Framed portrait as wall art
Turning your fine art portrait into wall art is the ultimate form of presentation for your home.
Your portrait is fine art printed onto cotton rag, stretched and then framed by hand. Frames are made of solid wood and are handmade specifically for your portrait. The only glass used is art glass which is reflection free.
If you would like to order wall art I will have a selection of frame styles and mount colours and options to ensure that your portrait is perfect for your home. Every frame is made to the highest standards and your wall art will be the centrepiece of any room.
For something a little different I also have a Favola album. Favola is the Italian word for 'fable' because you deserve a great story where magic meets reality and your memories will be protected forever. Everything about Favola is designed to give a vintage feeling, and transcend time and trends.
The luxury Genuine Italian cowhide leather 'Etrusco' wrap protects the album. The rich texture, soft surface combined with the high-quality cowhide is made in Tuscany and features a natural tanning process along with manual staining that ensures that each piece is truly unique.
Favola features handmade limited edition Amalfi paper. The deckled edge is created using the same ancient papermaking process, very much the same workflow still used in the family-owned paper mill in Amalfi.
Made with 100% pure cotton Amalfi paper, with décollage edges; the magical look and feel are a result of the organic materials that glorify your fine art portrait. Overall size 12x15 inches and the inside cover is Suede.
Once I get home I will open up your online gallery so you will be able to download the portraits you have purchased to keep forever. There will be no watermark, they will be jpegs and you can share them however you like.
A photoshoot with me at your home, or favourite location, is £650, which includes a £500 credit towards the purchase of printed products - be it a walnut folio box of matted archival fine art prints or custom made wall art, measured and created for your home. That investment also includes your pre-photoshoot consultation, your portrait photoshoot itself, the editing and preparation of your portraits for viewing, and your viewing and ordering appointment.
This investment is non-refundable, non-redeemable for cash and a £150 deposit is required on booking.
