When we create your portrait art, we do much more than take a few pictures.

When you have your family portrait art created by Whitesell Photography, you’ll enjoy special touches that make the experience wonderful. Your portraits will become cherished family heirlooms. We care about our work with the passion of an artist, creating images that are beyond normal portraiture. All your portraits are skillfully retouched to show the best version of you, and meet our trademark quality.


Why Our Family Portrait Art is so Unique

Here’s an overview of how we go about creating portrait art you’ll love and that will become valuable family heirlooms as time goes on:

Portrait Consultation

The first step is our pre-session consultation. This is where we explore why we’re doing this. We’ll explore the kind of artwork you’re dreaming of, taking in to account many factors – your unique family members, your preference for formal or casual, the place the portraits will be displayed, etc.

We’ll discuss the location, clothing, hairstyles, and much more. You’ll leave the consultation session knowing what to expect for your photography session. You’ll also learn about prices and products available, and we’ll have all the information we need to create the most amazing portrait art you’ve ever had.

Photography Session

This is where the fun happens! We want to make the experience a memorable occasion for everyone. We’ll create lots of poses so you’ll have plenty to choose from. We do all we can to make your photography session comfortable, and we take time to create unique artwork that tells your story.

Design Consultation

The design consultation session is quite exciting, since you’ll see your pictures for the first time! We’ll go over every pose and help you decide the ideal artwork to proudly display in your home and office, as well as gifts for family and friends.

We’ll explore what will fit perfectly in your home’s style, and with our unique ability to show you the finished artwork in your home before you decide, you know you’ll love the results! We can even correct many “oops” that happen, like a distracted child or closed eyes.

We use advanced technology to show you what your portrait art will look like on your own walls, so you can be sure it will fit perfectly. This short video shows how we are able to do this.

Presentation

The end result! You’ll marvel at the beauty of your new wall art displayed proudly in your home.

Everyone looks their best in a Whitesell portrait, and you’ll be so proud of your family every time you walk by it. This is your legacy!

The family portraits you took are something my family and I will cherish forever. The settings you chose were the perfect backdrop and your patience with a large group of people is saintly. Thank you for creating this memory for us.

Jim was absolutely professional about his approach and had 3 really good locations picked out with beautiful colours, he was also able to keep our children engaged in the shoot and last but not least the pictures turned out amazing! We are so happy with the photos that our family will cherish for a long long time. Thank you Whitesell Photography!

We had our family photos done back in Sept after it snowed. Our portraits look fantastic despite the wet conditions and Jim made the experience very enjoyable. Thank you
