At Amanda Ellis Photography, we start with the end in mind and what the end result will be, first. Where do you plan to display your portraits? What does your home design look like? What colors are you drawn to? How do you want to see these priceless images 5, 10, 20 years from now? Asking these questions at the beginning always results in an incredible session that gives you exactly what you dreamed of - a printed treasure you can display proudly.
Let’s ditch the “Everyone smile and say cheese” JC Penny Portrait experience and create soulful images full of emotion, love, and authentic moments that are timeless and classic.
My studio is located in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio but I also serve most of Northeast Ohio including: Canton, Hudson, Stow, Fairlawn, Bath, Cleveland and Wadsworth.
First, let’s talk goals! What final result are we shooting for and how will we plan it? From what to wear, to how images will be displayed, color design, location planning and look and feel of the session, the pre-consultation answers ALL your questions and helps us get to know your family. We will coordinate how we shoot the session with what the final outcome will be. Your shoot is NOT happenstance. It is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consults can take place in-person or on the phone. Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell us about your home and your vision and we’ll add in our creativity to make it happen.
Some people feel a lot of anxiety about this part. We know you’ve put in a lot of effort to make this happen. Gathering clothing, wrangling all of the people, delivering the baby. We applaud and appreciate you. And now you can relax. Now is when you sit back and revel in your family and what you’ve created. Now is when you enjoy this process. Take some deep breaths and feel all of the love that went into the making of this one unique family of yours. We’ve got this; we’ve got you.
We’re going to show you your images and sometimes people cry. We like that part. We’ll have snacks and drinks and you can relax. We’re going to help you sort through all of the images that you’re going to want to keep. It’s going to seem impossible choose, but we know you can do it with our help. Together, we’ll curate a beautiful collection of images that tell the story of this particular time in your life. We’ll help you decide where that story is going to go and how it’s going to be displayed for you to remember as you move on to your next chapter.
We’ve partnered with the best professional printers, craftsmen and artists to create exceptional works of art for your home. From giclee to traditional silver halide photographic prints and hand-bound albums, your images are printed in a technique rated to last for generations.
Your legacy begins on delivery day. We’ll pop by your house or meet you at the studio and hand you beautiful artwork featuring those people who make your life, your life.
The session fee is $300 and includes a consultation, personalized session design, hair & makeup for mom and an ordering appointment where we'll help you decide on your favorite images and how you want to take them home.
All prints and imagery are sold separately.
