Thank you so much for participating in Portraits in the Vineyard event coming up!  Jonathan and Kaela have built their studio to be focused on charitable giving first.  In fact, they have a yearly goal of donating $250,000 in goods and services to local organizations to be used towards bringing in funds for those charitable needs.  The studio donates to over 125 auctions every year and we are always watching for wonderful ways to help the smaller organizations that need our help the most, such as Paws for Freedom!

With your generous donation, you are receiving a $400 Portrait Certificate with us to be applied towards your portrait experience with us in the Vineyard.  It will cover the $100 session fee and the remainder can cover 2 8×10 gift portraits, or we find that most of our clients love their portraits so much they want to decorate their walls with them and we simply apply the credit towards your order.  Our studio is well-known for the wonderful art pieces we create of our client’s families.  Specializing in families, it’s not uncommon to have large groups in front of our camera with three or four generations for a portrait.

To give you an example of investment levels with our studio, we have two sizes on display in the Tasting Room.  One is the 8×10 gift portrait, available ala carte for $149.  Portraits are mounted on a thick artboard, luster sprayed and hand-edged in gold, perfect for gift giving as is or for putting into a small gift frame.  Our other size on display is a 20″ wall portrait, available ala carte for $999.  Our wall portraits are meticulously enhanced by our artist to reveal the beauty and the depth of the image.  Archival inks are then embedded in the highest quality cotton canvas and the triple coating of museum grade lacquer we use brings forward the depth and character of the final art piece.  You will find more information about the products we offer inside the above guide.

For your wardrobe selection for your portrait, please refer to pages 6 and 7 in the above guide.  Consider where you might like to see your portraits displayed at home and think about the colors in that room.  You’ll want to use colors for your wardrobe that goes along with the colors in your home.  For the vineyard, darker tones will photograph best.  Avoid stripes or strong patterns unless you have a cover-up of some kind to minimize the patterns from competing with faces.  When in doubt, stop to think about whether or not you want to see that outfit on the wall for the next 30 years.  We find that usually helps clients make great decisions.  🙂

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at the studio!  913-636-5478  We look forward to creating beautiful portrait art for you in the vineyard!
