What’s The Difference Of A Full-Service Studio?


When reading “full-service” you probably immediately thought of a gas station—and that is exactly right! You pull up to the pump, tell the attendant what type of gasoline you want and the quantity, and then sit back and relax while the entire thing is done for you.

That same concept applies when working with a Boutique Photographer. A full-service portrait experience is all about you and your family enjoying the experience, where the only thing you need to do is show up and choose the artwork you want us to create for you. Even then, it is our job as a professional to guide you through that process because most people have no idea what is available until we educate you on the options. And it doesn’t stop there—here are the top perks of choosing a full-service studio for your photography needs:

Personalized One-on-One Attention

A full-service studio is where you get to experience everything done for you. The Boutique Photographer meets with you prior to your portrait session to discuss preferences to fully customize your experience, curates the prop selection for your session, guides you through the wardrobe selection so you look your best in the portraits, helps you select the best products to suit your family’s needs, takes care of all the design work so that you just need to pick your favourites, and holds your hand through the entire process so that you always know what happens next. We will even travel to your home and assist you in getting that art on display for you to enjoy as soon as possible. Boutique means we care about the people, the art, the experience, and our community. Did you know that a portion of every booking with Stephanie (yours truly) is donated to a local charity? I am happy to tell you all about during our discovery call!

Expert Knowledge & Years of Experience

Over time we photographers have come to know the best poses to flatter all different body types, we have scouted out the best locations for beautiful portraits (some might surprise you!), we have filled the studio closet with gorgeous outfits for you to wear and props to use during your photography session, and have trained on how to use our equipment and software to make your images the best art they can be. Years of experience and education goes into making the portrait experience as streamlined and personalized as possible, and to provide ready-to-display heirloom quality artwork made from professionally retouched images.

On top of experience, a Nationally Accredited Photographer has put their learned skills and years of experience into action for a panel of judges to determine their abilities, professionalism, ethics, and talent. Being awarded such a designation is both a personal milestone and achievement, AND a professional stamp of approval knowing you get the best of the best in artistry and in business. Your truly is Nationally Accredited with the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) and I am always working on my next award and achievement.

Heirloom Quality Artwork

Your portraits are so much more than just a click of a button; they are a beautiful moment frozen in time and immortalized into art for you and your children, to be passed down and cherished by future generations. The full-service studio is as much about the experience as it about the final artwork we create together. Whether you are looking for a statement piece in your family room, a mural in the great hall, a gallery in your living space, albums for the grandparents, and/or whatever else you can imagineI’d love to help make it happen.

Choose the full-service portrait studio, enjoy the experience and the luxury of convenience, and let's create your family’s legacy.
