THE BHP PROCESS
BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND
You know you need family portraits but what are you going to do with them? At BHP we begin with the end in mind, which means, before we ever pick up a camera, we have a plan for where and how these photos will hang in your home or the story we want to tell in your family album.
Do you have a tall, skinny spot above your fireplace? Let’s create an amazing iconic image to hang there. Perhaps you want to start a family gallery incorporating older images with the new portraits you are commissioning. We can make that happen.
Are you moving soon or live in a house with no wall space? Telling your family’s story in a luxurious, custom-designed album lets you capture and preserve this stage of your children’s lives. Your unique needs and concerns will guide your one-on-one Design Consultation.
Your Design Consultation kicks off the process. We want the scoop on your family and kids. What are their personalities like? What do they love to do?
Understanding your family dynamics allows us to capture their personalities and their relationships as they really are.
Your every question will be answered, including:
What types of clothing photograph best?
A full understanding of the investment you’ll be making?
What are the most suitable areas of your home for your family portraits?
And other burning questions such as whether or not we have a weather guarantee (the answer is, “yes!”)
VIEW & ORDER APPOINTMENT
Approximately one week after your photo shoot, we will meet together in person or virtually for the View and Order appointment. Your View and Order appointment is the time set aside to finalize your portrait order, so be sure and schedule a time when both Mom and Dad can be there.
Using our state-of-the-art software and photos of the walls in your home, we will show your portraits scaled onto your walls, which solves the problem of what size to order; not too big, not too small, but just right!
We will guide you every step of the way using your goals from the consultation to achieve your vision for your family portraits.
DELIVERY & INSTALLATION
Most of our clients prefer to have their portraits delivered and installed in their homes. About 4-6 weeks after your order has been placed, your portraits will be delivered and installed in your home. This service eliminates the “a little to the left” fights between well-meaning husbands and micro-managing wives (or vice versa;). Let us handle the heavy lifting and hanging All that’s left to do now is stand back, and enjoy the view..
THE LONG TERM PLAN
You’re thrilled that your portraits are hung on your walls with care, but we both know that those kids will keep growing and changing, so what about next year, and the year after that?
Once you’re part of the BHP Family, we help you create a vision for future sessions based on the ages and stages of your children AND the design vision for your home.
Our pieces are curated to look good now AND be able to move throughout your home as we add to your family art collection over time. We work with you and your interior designer to make it perfect.
