Vermilion Grad Photography | Sexy? Feet!

Dragon Hare Studios – In a twist on our signature feet grad portraits, Laurel and Susie modeled for this portrait last fall!  Susie was not as agreeable to the portrait as Laurel had hoped!  In fact, after trying for several minutes to get Susie in place to pose, we finally got her settled and just as we went to photograph the image, Susie began to pee really letting us know what she thought of the whole process.  Needless to say, a bit of photoshop magic and Susie’s disagreeable nature disappeared from Laurel’s grad portrait!

Did you know we retouch our portraits?  This is different from “editing” as we go in and remove acne, threads on clothes, distracting elements in the background and cow pee!  We do not charge extra for retouching your portrait, we believe you are extraordinary and deserve a portrait that looks it’s very best!

If you would like outdoor grad portraits, consider having them done in the fall!  If you wait until spring, you will not have green grass or leaves on the trees or your portraits in time for your grad!  If you wait until winter, you won’t be able to do many outdoor portraits as it will be too cold!  Contact us today to begin planning your signature grad images!

Vermilion Family Photographer | What to do with those portraits?

Dragon Hare Studios – At Dragon Hare, we believe that you should enjoy your family portraits by displaying them with a beautiful wall portrait collage.  To us, a disc is not a finished product!  While we will sell a digital file, we feel a finished product is a framed print, a canvas wall collage, an album or greeting cards made with your portraits!

Not sure how to display your portraits?  Well, we can help!  In our planning session, we always find out where you want to feature your prints and the room colors present.  I would not suggest pink clothing if your living room wall is red!  We match the tones of the photograph, the location we photograph and the clothing we recommend with the finished product in mind!  Our goal is color harmony so your portrait is about you, rather than your clothing or what color you painted your walls!

Did you know, we encourage our clients to bring in a photograph of the wall they want to feature their portraits on?  We can place your portraits on your wall in your ordering session so you can ensure you are happy with the way they will look before you buy!

Our sessions are so much more than showing up to take your portrait and handing you digital files.  We plan out your session so you look great, the portraits look great on your wall and their quality is high enough to ensure they will be enjoyed by generations to come!
