About the Process


The portrait procedure begins with a consultation to discuss and agree upon the mood and background of the portrait. The clothing, setting and where the portrait will hang are also discussed. Each portrait is carefully thought out with careful insight about the personality of the subjects.

Depending on the type of assignment, your Pre-Session Consultation may be with Carolyn, her daughter and business partner Susan Whitmore or both. There is no cost or obligation to you for this time to get together and chat about your portrait needs and to design the perfect portrait of your dreams.

Single image studio studies and executive portraits can often times be discussed by phone. More complex multi-image studio or garden portraits can sometimes be handled by phone. However, a better understanding of all your needs is best accomplished by a visit to the studio. There is never a cost or obligation for this service.

Location Portraiture may require a visit to the intended site to establish the best indoor or outdoor location and time of day. This isn't always necessary but we are prepared to do our best to assure a successful session.

Selecting Your Portraits

Previewing the portraits is exciting. This presentation will take place at our studio a day or two following the session and will last about two hours. If you plan to be in Atlanta only for the day of the session we can make special arrangements for you to see your images the same day as the session. All interested parties should be present, as we only do one private appointment. We love children however, you will need to arrange childcare so as to give your full attention to the decision making process.

Ordering your finished portraits would be concluded at this appointment. It is our pleasure to provide artist-selected framing which is provided in SOME of our portrait categories. Delivery is also a complimentary service should you desire our assistance. Our collectors, whether returning or new clients, will receive our full care and attention.

Satisfaction is our goal and promise.

"Your satisfaction with our work is always 100% guaranteed.“
