The Process – Guide to a Perfect Portrait

Guide to a Perfect Portrait


    A photoart by simpson portrait starts with a phone call, where one of our team members schedules a time with you for a Portrait Design Consultation. The consultation is where we get to know each other, and plan your perfect portrait. We go through portrait styles, clothing suggestions and all other fine details. The perfect location will be discussed along with the best time of day. Your portrait session date is booked at this time and a retainer is taken to reserve the day.


    On your session day, it is always recommended to arrive 10 minutes early; that way you have time to relax, and double check things in the dressing room before your portrait session begins. Your session includes the Time & Skill of two photographers who will pay attention to the fine details that make the difference between a picture and a portrait. After the session, a time will be scheduled for your Order Appointment.
    You will be asked to send a few snapshots of walls from around your home so that you are able to see the images from your portrait session superimposed to size so that you may be confident in where you think the images both look and fit best. For easy instructions on how to do this, watch the video below.

    The Order Appointment is normally booked for a time within a week of your portrait date. Anyone wishing to be a part of the decision making process should be present as the order is placed at this time. With help from one of the portrait artists, you will go through the images captured on your session date and make your selections.

    Designed with you in mind, all of our wall portraits come with easy to hang wireless systems that will not shift on the wall. All wall portraits are professionally installed by a member of the Photoart team
