Has it been more than 3 years since your last family portrait? Let's fix that!
Your family, your kids, your loved ones are changing every day. Don't let these moments pass you by!
These will be the portraits that hang on your walls for years to come. These will be the portraits your children show their children 30 years from now.
I would love to hear your personal family portrait goals and make a plan to achieve those together!
First, reach out to me and let me know you're interested in a session. That will get the ball rolling! We'll talk about your session goals, where you'd like to hang your portraits, and we'll get to know each others' preferences and styles. We'll discuss wardrobe and location options.
Many times during your family session we'll also include individual portraits of the kids and mom and dad, so you finish your session with a complete set of proofs of your entire family.
Every family is unique and so are my San Diego portrait sessions.
Your Portrait Reveal session will be the time you see your images and choose your favorites for purchase. Clients always tell me this is their favorite part of our time together. I'll show you your images on your walls which allows you to invest with confidence, knowing the art we have created together will be stunningly beautiful in your home.
Your portrait session will be custom designed by Gretchen with your personal goals in mind. Prior to your session, we'll have a consultation to discuss a few topics, including:
The Gretchen Otero Photography process is different from what you might be used to, but it's so much better for you and very simple! Best of all you'll have me every step of the way eliminating the guesswork and answering your questions. I'll also ask questions of you that will help me tailor your experience to your exact needs.
We'll start with a phone call so you can tell me all about your goals. Tell me why you want to have these portraits made and what you envision for your home. We'll then decide on what session (studio, location, or home) will meet your goals and schedule your dedicated time.
Your portrait session will be a lot of fun and will flow in a way that keeps busy toddlers and uninterested dads engaged and having fun. The focus is on making sure everyone is enjoying themself and behaving naturally and comfortably. With 15 years of this under my belt, I have lots of tips, tricks, and strategies to make sure everyone has a good time. One of the funniest and most memorable comments I ever received after a session was from a dad and he said, "Wow, that wasn't nearly as painful as I thought it would be." Of course, mom had nicer things to say, but Dad's funny words have always stuck with me!
After your portrait session, we'll schedule your Portrait Reveal Experience. This is when you will choose your favorite images from your session. I'll tailor your offerings to match your decor, goals, and your images. I will digitally show you your favorite images on your own walls so you can see exactly how your chosen portraits will look in your home. We'll go over options and finalize your order all within this experience! And voila! You're all done and I'll be delivering your custom artwork to your doorstep in just a few weeks!
