1. What is a full-service studio?
JLR Portrait Studio provides more than just a brief chat, a session and a send off.
Gathering the family for a portrait session can be a daunting task. (And know that when we say family, we mean your fur babies and ponies too!) We want to let you know that our casual, comfortable and fun experience will allow your kids to be kids and give you portrait memories of your family that speak to your heart. We invite you to visit us in studio, via Zoom call or by phone, and we will make house calls too.
Our goal is to learn about your family and create a worry-free custom experience. We want you to enjoy your beautiful images by seeing them on display in your home as wall Art, or in a cherished album, or in a fine portrait box.
Your family is beautiful and it is wonderful, exciting time in your life. Photograph it. Share it. Cherish it with beautiful Art.
2. Do you offer professional hairstyling?
For studio sessions, we will coordinate a professional hair styling appointment with a salon located two miles from our studio. There is an additional $25 charge for this service.
3. I have no idea what to wear, will you help?
Of course! We will go over clothing information fully when we have our initial chat. We also have a few items for women in our studio wardrobe.
4. Do you sell digital files?
Yes, we sure do! Digital images accompany any size Art, album, or portrait box that you purchase.
5. Artwork, what do you mean by that?
Your portraits are thoughtfully photographed, and creatively edited with emphasis on color, clarity, gradient, and texture. In addition, we can smooth skin, do very simple nips and tucks, clear up acne, and tame stray fly away hairs. It is Art that we create of you and your family with our processes. The Art is unique, bold and beautiful, and we are proud to offer it.
6. I would like to order some prints and maybe something for my wall, where should I begin?
We would LOVE to visit your home space and chat with you about your design and decoration needs. We are experienced in utilizing sizes and shapes to maximize the visual impact that your artwork should have in your home. We also can literally show you what a specific piece of art will look like on your wall BEFORE you order it. Let us show you, call 715.986.8077 to schedule an appointment.
7. What do you charge?
A $500 deposit is required upon scheduling your session. This fee includes my creative fee and the remaining $350 is your Art credit for something gorgeous for you to display in your home.
Wisconsin Sales Tax will be added to every purchase and determined at your viewing and ordering appointment.
HOW THE SESSION WORKS
A phone call, ZOOM, or in-person meeting will happen first and we will answer all of your questions and schedule your session.
Next, at your session, you and your horse enjoy a casual, very fun, sometimes goofy portrait session with me.
Last, we'll schedule a viewing and ordering meeting. You'll come to the studio, or I'll meet you at your home if you prefer, and we will watch your video and enjoy all of your wonderful images one by one.
You'll choose which images you LOVE, and then I will help you determine what Art, or album, or portrait box works the best for you and your family.
Cash, debit or credit card or check. Balances that remain after the $500 deposit are eligible for 3 or 6 month payment plans.
