A beautifully handmade torn edge watercolor paper fine art print, floating in front of silk or linen wrapped around a wooden block. A delicate looking finished art piece with class that doesn't need to be framed.
Each handmade canvas is printed onto smooth paper, then transferred to the canvas backing. The canvas material is hand shaved to remove imperfections, then hand-stretched onto a solid wooden frame. Brushstrokes are then applied by hand to follow the contours of the subjects in the image. The final product is sealed for durability. The result is a one of a kind artwork of your family that is strong and long-lasting. Can be framed or hung without a frame.
These portraits are hand-painted, stroke-by-stroke, using a tablet and stylus and utilizing the premier painting software, Corel Painter as well as acrylic embellishments. Traditional style and technique combined with today's technology.
All photo paper prints are backed with styrene. Styrene is a super smooth plastic mounting surface that doesn’t warp, making it perfect for the southern humidity. There are three different types of papers, Photo Papers Lustre and Deep Matte, then Fine Art Cotton Rag paper. Lustre has a slight sheen and a sharper image. Deep Matte has a non-reflective surface that feels velvety soft. Framed in your choice of frames, prints arrive assembled and ready to hang. Fine art paper prints on cotton rag have a very smooth matte surface with incredible pigmentation and depth, making the image seem to leap off the paper. Fine art prints may also have a deckled edge if you choose.
Full-size photo files for you to print, reprint, whatever you want.
You're a busy mom. Your mother or your mother-in-law has been bugging you about photos forever or maybe you've noticed your baby girl growing out of that princess phase... but there's just no time! Between dance lessons or soccer practice or that thing that needed to be done for school last week, it's just exhausting. Maybe the water heater quit or your tires need to be replaced and you'll get to it when you can afford it. Photography just feels like the last thing you need to worry about. There’s always tomorrow, next week, next month, or next season... right? Except.. the kids aren't getting any smaller. They don't stop growing just because you don't have time to get photos made. It'll be next month.. or next year, or a few years later and suddenly you'll remember that you missed portraits when they were five years old or that time when they were missing two front teeth and you can't get that back.
You know you need photography, but how do you find the best photographer for your family? You worry that your kids will be too shy or too crazy and you're scared you won't get any good photos. You want a photographer that has lots of experience in tough situations and can still make amazing photos for you. Fairyography is exactly what you're looking for. As a photographer, I've been creating portraits for families and babies and little fairies and regular kids for 14 years, and I was a pre-school teacher before that. I know children, and I know how to bring a shy child out of her bubble or keep a crazypants kid from running all over you (and me!).
Your photo session will be a relaxed, fun stroll through the location of your choice. I will seat you in a specific place, but never tell your child to 'smile'.. instead asking them about their favorite things at school or making up silly songs. I tell you, fart jokes go a long way to distracting kids from taking pictures.. and it works on grumpy dads too! I have all the patience in the world when it comes to taking our time to have a nice enjoyable photo session. I often get emails later on telling me that the kids are still asking when the next time they'll see Miss Heather again will be. And you don't have to take my word for it, you can read the testimonials page for words from moms like you.
After the shoot, I go through your photos and edit the best. You'll come in to view them with me so you're not slogging through an only gallery alone at home with no help. You'll see and touch all the products that I have to offer, so you'll know exactly what you'll get. Your images will look exactly like you'll receive them in your albums or wall prints. If you order frames and prints, they'll be in those frames and ready to hang when you get therm. Everything to cut down on your time and effort spent on this and make it as easy as possible for you.
See the samples of the prints and see why my photo albums are so coveted! Your final products are the other half of what make a Fairyography or Stylized Portraiture session so unique. and I want you to see what could be hanging on your walls or sitting on your coffee table.
One of the things I'm asked the most is "what do we wear?" I provide the wardrobe for Fairyography photo session, and I will also help you pick out wardrobe for family sessions.. even to the point of picking out everything and sending you links to buy. This service extends into everything else I do. I answer emails and calls quickly, you can have an outdoor or in-studio session, and you'll come in to view your images and get my help and suggestions for what you should be hanging in your home.
I've been in business for 15 years. Not only do you get 15 years of my being a photographer, but you also get all of my years of being a preschool teacher before that. I know how to talk to children and make the photos a fun experience for everyone in the family. One of the things a lot of my clients tell me is that I have so much patience and they're very thankful for the great time they had.
