Mary Lynn captures the special people and places in your life that allow you to reminisce in memories and emotion, whether that be a nearby park, your garden, a room or walking path. People and places of significant and personal meaning to you will be photographed with utmost care and sensitivity, allowing you to bring them into your life in a newly accessible way. These photographs will be delivered to you in any method you choose. You may be interested in digital files only, framed wall portraits or having them transformed into heirloom art for your home. All items are offered a-la-cart and include an online gallery, and an in-person meeting to view your gallery and plan for display.
Step One: Pre-Consult:
Pre-consult meetings ideally begin with a casual conversation at your place to be photographed. Mary Lynn wants to learn about the personality, character and if you find it useful, share some of your favorite memories or important details this location and people hold in your heart. She will discuss your dreams and ideas for what types of photographs or important elements you'd like to be included. To make the most of the session, Mary Lynn will work with you to plan for shooting locations throughout spaces and assess for natural light. Also during this pre-consult, you may like to chat about where you'd like the art to be displayed, colors and design ideas. All art can be customized to your style, color scheme, design and impression you are seeking to convey.
If your schedule does not allow for a pre-consult meeting, Mary Lynn is happy to speak with you over the phone and provide additional time during the session.
Step Two: Portrait and Places Session
Portrait sessions last anywhere between one-three hours, we work together to fit your needs. "Places" sessions are three hours minimum. Mary Lynn believes in making adjustments for time, weather, light and discovery. Each person photographed responds differently to being photographed and all emotions are welcome and respected, these elements will allow for photographs that bring to life each personality. Our time together will include time for taking breaks, newborn nursing and time to get comfortable together without any rush or pressure.
Step Three: Slideshow Presentation & In-person Ordering Appointment - OPTIONAL
If interested, you may view your portraits at a personally attended Ordering Appointment and slideshow.
This is your opportunity to have professional consultation, view cropping and layouts, compare images, imagine images to scale in your home and discuss the best way for you to enjoy the memories from your session.
