Raleigh and Wake Forest Family Portrait

Oh my goodness, do we love family portraits in our N. Raleigh location, only a few miles from Wakefield in Wake Forest with all of our great friends!  This beautiful bubbly group drove from Lillington to Raleigh to get their updated  portrait this year.  We had a blast together and got some outstanding images.  In this article we will show you what a professional photographer can offer in the way of a family portrait.

Our first image is the image straight out of the camera, while the second photo is a set of “edits” we made for our presentation in the HD slide show we previewed in our client’s home. The final image is the museum fine art print we created for final presentation to our family.  Mom and Dad LOVED it!  We are certain it will become a treasured heirloom:

great expressions and super photo for mom, but we thought it would be a better portrait if presented simply as a classic black and white portrait, with some minor enhancements and cropping.

Mom and Dad loved this image and we thought it could be even more of an heirloom portrait for this family.  We were able to create this fine art gem printed on archival watercolor paper finished with a hand torn deckled edge, free-floating on a museum quality archival mat board in a recessed bevel to be hung as a gallery print in a plain black frame.

This is what a professional family photographer can offer a family as a finished family portrait!  It has taken us years of experience working with families, learning how to use our gear most effectively, establishing amazing relationships with our vendors asking them to do only their best work for us, and consistently attending higher learning in order to be able to offer our families new and exciting fine art.  Our family loved their family portrait so much that they invested further in a family album, a grand size canvas wrap, and several small desk sized portraits for family and friends, as well as custom designed Christmas cards.  We look forward to our next time together.

Here is the canvas wrap this happy group have hanging above their fireplace in their new home:
