Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory
It stars with the spirit of intent. Our intention to create rich and lasting memories that you will carry with you and revisit time and time again. Memories that will bring a chuckle to the ear and a smile to the heart.
Winslow Portraits creates casual style studio portraits. A black background in black and white or colour and a White background in colour. Outdoor are casual as well.
In order to achieve the best possible result, we have the following dress suggestions. These are only suggestions and ultimately these are your portraits so dress is your final decision. Studio and outdoors can differ.
- Jeans with matching, solid color tops
- 3/4 or full length sleeves
- Barefoot looks great (studio or on the beach) if you want to wear shoes they should preferably match in colour, be clean no scuffs.
- Makeup should look natural, please do not use gloss on lips or face.
- Children: We start working with children at the age of 3 months.
- Sessions with children at 5 years of age and younger are scheduled in the morning for best results so please schedule early.
NOTE DEFINITION OF A SESSION and what is included in a session.
A portrait session is the" time" the photographer delivers to create a portrait and offsets the studio rent and equipment. It is a service item only. A session does not include any prints or digital files.
It is very important to walk your pet before the session to assure he or she is OK to be inside for at least 30 minutes. Allowing them to have their exercise before a session is recommended. Please keep your pet on a leash or in their kennel until the photographer is ready. Your dog must be under your full control.
Viewing and Ordering Your Portraits
Portrait View & Order Session
The portrait view & order session is the time when you will review the images created in your portrait session to make the decisions on which portraits you would like to order. Your images will be projected on a large screen as we help you narrow down your favorite poses. Exact sizes can be displayed on our monitor which will help you make your decisions. The process usually takes approximately 30-45 minutes. Please schedule your viewing session when you are calling in to schedule your portrait session.
