Custom Photography is not cookie cutter chain store style photography, nor is it your entry level photographer style of photography. It is a luxury and not for everyone. “…it requires a level of commitment, investment of time and money, forethought and planning on the part of the subject/client and a larger time commitment on the part of the photographer as well.” ( quote from ~Chicago Photographer Marianne Drenthe).
More discerning clients are known to budget for a custom photography session. While it may not be for everyone, many clients will save up for opportunity to have an heirloom portrait while others will splurge in order to record the changes in their families lives.
“There is a great deal of time involved in creating high end custom photography sessions for a client. The luxury of great service, better choices and a superb end product. The result of all this are heirloom quality images. The time invested at the session is only a very small portion of the time involved in this process.” quote from Chicago Photographer~Marianne Drenthe. And most custom photographers give a full money back guarentee. (An important thing to check on.)
While keeping to their uniuqe style, experience photographers who take “Continuing Education Courses” and workshops will still bring varity to the photography session. Always using what they have learned and past experience, customizing your session to you, your child, your family. Making your portrait unique and different. A beautiful piece of art that you can proudly display in your home or office.
