With the popularity of location photography these days, one might ask… Is there still a demand for indoor studio photography? Absolutely!!! While the beauty of nature will always be inspiring, it is important to also understand the need for and benefits of a Professional In-Studio Session. In-studio photography does not have to be stiff and boring. In fact, a studio portrait session provides a blank canvas from which Phillip Crider can create any look, style and feel that each individual client is looking for. Pre-session consultations are so important for this reason.
 
Just as any commissioned artist, it is important for us to meet with you and discuss your desires and wishes. Most people have either seen something they like or have an idea of a style they are wanting. Even if you have no idea what you’re wanting, we can help you out! During a consultation, our portrait consultants discuss all aspects of a portrait session with you from your desires of photographic style to clothing to the end result of what you want as keepsakes. We can show you samples of the many styles and products that we can create. It is not unusual for a client to bring in a photo from a magazine or other media source that they wish to emulate.
 
In studio sessions allow the photographic artist to have complete control over lighting, composition, etc. to achieve a specific look, style and feel. Because of this, in studio sessions tend to offer more creativity than outdoor sessions. From very simple to very elaborate, we can produce a timeless treasure for you to keep forever! Whether you’re using our props, your own props you bring in, or a plain background that will be painted digitally later, the possibilities are endless with in studio photography. No two sessions are ever exactly alike. Plus, you won’t have to worry about the weather! Rain or Shine, Hot or Cold, you are always comfortable indoors! Indoor Studio sessions still are classy and ideal for capturing your family’s cherished memories.
