Fine Art Photographic Portraits
When you value unique painterly portraits that express the personality of your loved ones.
When you want a photographer who has time to listen to your dreams for family portraits.
When you need someone who is patient with children and husbands.
When you desire custom artwork that complements your decor.
When you're ready, let's talk.
Personal Help Planning and Preparing
You'll have my help during every step of making your beautiful portraits. We'll start with a phone call to discover what your hopes for portraits are as we begin to get to know each other. Then we'll schedule a consultation to plan the details. If possible, I'll come to your home, or we'll do a FaceTime call so I can assess your personal and decorating style and plan images that will express your style. I'm a trained interior designer so I'm equipped to advise the best locations and configurations for your portraits. We'll choose clothing from your closet for your photo session so you're not left to wonder what to wear. We'll talk about what painterly portrait styles you love including backgrounds and poses after viewing some of my themed idea boards. I'll show you samples of products. And we'll discuss prices again.
Patient and calm guidance during the session
I never force a child to pose or smile. As a mother of six and grandmother of fifteen, I know how to help a child relax and just be themselves. And we'll make it painless for Dad, too! It's called Gentle Touch for a reason.
Each piece of artwork is unique
I gladly invest hours into each image transforming it from a photograph into a piece of art. Every piece is uniquely crafted to best enhance each person with digital hand painting. Customized backgrounds fit the decor of your home. Then the image is reproduced on the highest quality canvas or watercolor paper and hand brushed with a clear, protective seal. Your keepsake will be framed in a style appropriate to your decor.
What to expect when you commission Lorelei to make fine art portraits of your family.
I treat each person whether young or old with respect and consideration. I'm on your side! My mantra is to treat others as I want to be treated. So you're in kind hands. You're also in experienced hands. I won't disclose exactly how many years I've been professionally photographing, but it's over 30 years. My husband and I have six adult children and fifteen grandchildren. So please don't feel that your children have to be perfect for their portraits. I don't expect them to be!
