OUR PROCESS

Family Portrait Wall Group cool

Begin with the end in mind.

You know you need to have portraits created, but what will you do with them? At K. Fischer Portraits we begin with the end in mind. This means, before your portrait session day arrives, you will know exactly how you plan to display your finished products. Whether you choose to create Wall Art, Albums, Folios or a combination of all three, we will have a plan to maximize our efforts and create priceless heirloom treasures for your family. 

Do you want to create a gallery wall in your living room? Do you want one iconic piece over your fireplace? How about a spot you aren't quite sure about? We can measure the space and create custom artwork just for you. 

Do you love the idea of having a collection of images in an Album to tell a story? Or, do you love the idea of a beautiful Folio Box with a variety of hand matted images that can be shared or swapped out for display? During your Design Consultation you will get to touch and see your options so that you are fully prepared for when you choose your final images.

Design Consultation

Your Design Consultation Appointment kicks off your whole experience. This is where we get down to the details of what you are looking to create for your home. Not sure? That is TOTALLY OK!  You have come to the right place. We are the experts in guiding you to an outcome you will LOVE. 

We will start by getting to know you. We will go through our discovery process to find out about the personalities of who we will be photographing. Tricky teen? No problem. Darling Diva seven year old who wants to call the shots... We have been there done, that!  Your own fears? All those things lurking in the back of your mind.... We are HERE FOR YOU. Rest assured that you will be taken care of!  

We will talk about:

Where would you like to be photographed?

What portrait style are you drawn to?

What types of clothing will photograph best?

What are the most suitable areas of your home for portraits?

What portrait products do you love most?

How to you plan to use your images? In your home? As a gift? Both? 

What does your portrait investment look like? 

And more...

When this appointment is over you will be fully prepared for your portrait session!  You will have access to send us emails or messages if you need additional assistance leading up to your portrait session date.  We are truly here for YOU.

Portrait Session 

Your special day has arrived and you are fully prepared! Be present and enjoy the photography experience. With almost TWENTY, yes twenty years experience under her belt, Kerra will expertly guide you through posing to ensure the best results! Whether we are photographing your whole family, your child, your high school senior or yourself, you can be confident in knowing we will create images you will love.  

In most cases your portrait session does not have a specific time frame. Kerra will create images in the pre planned locations and with the pre planned wardrobe. Some sessions can be accomplished in as little as 30 minutes, while others can last for a few hours. The objective is always to achieve the most beautiful images for your artwork. 

WARNING:

You may find yourself having so much fun that you don't want the session to stop!

"From the initial meeting to the photo reveal, Kerra was so wonderful to work with for our son's 1st birthday. She was very professional and went the extra mile to make sure every detail was perfect. His pictures turned out wonderful and she was really able to capture his personality. We will treasure these photos for years to come!"

Production & Delivery

We will take it from here!  Within 48 hours you will receive a link to the digital files for each image you purchased. Your custom wall art, albums and folio boxes will be ordered. Our total expected delivery time for finished artwork can range from 4-6 weeks. With the shipping and material shortages our world is facing we do a very good job at staying within that timeline but occasionally we do have delays. We will keep you up to date should any arise!  

When your products reach our studio we will carefully package them and prepare them for pickup. If you would like to make special arrangements to have the items delivered to your home, please inquire about that option at your Viewing & Ordering appointment. When we CAN make it happen, WE WILL!  

Take a breath and know that what really matters is on it's way.  Your home is about to become more beautiful with the faces of your loved ones adorning the walls. Know that you took the right steps in ensuring your future generations can see where they come from and you right now... can enjoy the ones you love the most every day.
