EJP isn't just about posing you for a smile. From start to finish, I'm there- as much or as little as you need me. Struggling with outfits? I'm at your house, picking out your wardrobe. Don't have anything to wear? I'm going shopping with you, picking out your dress (because let's face it, everyone's outfit must resolve around Mom's!), helping you buy shoes for your toddler or loaning you a boutique dress I've bought for my own children. I'm creating your amazon cart. I'm getting to know your family's personality, style, likes and dislikes, and choosing a location that represents you. If you don't need my help with wardrobe, no worries. For those that do, find comfort in my many passionate teenage years studying the female body and how clothes lay on different shapes as I sit on thousands of sketches from my youthful dreams of becoming a fashion designer. While I never took that route, I still retain fabric, cut, style and shaping of garments on all women! Need a hair and make-up artist recommendation? Got you. Have a sentimental location you want to use? Sold. Just want me to pop by your house? Let me know what time, and homemade baked goods are always great tips. ;). The entire business model of EJP is the same as that of a boutique... customized, limited availability, one of a kind sessions that just speak to your soul... and everyone's who sees your photos. So.. after we pick out your outfits, location, and on our scheduled date do our session, then what?
The fun part! After I've lightly edited your best images, I come to your home to help you visualize how every print and size will look based on your favorite photos. I can recommend framers (or take care of it for you) or ways to hang your canvas/metal/glass/wood prints, and answer any final questions. I help you choose your digital files, and offer a 15% discount on any additional purchases (digital packages, extra prints, custom USB drive, etc.). This job isn't just me coming to push a button and saying "cheese". It's about creating a memory of a time in your life when *this* was your family. I want these images to be passed down for generations to come after spending many years above your mantle. I sell art, not "smile for the camera" printed on paper.
I offer many options for collections with EJP, and payment plans for purchases of $500 or more (subject to availability).
