    Our studio is located on Historic Main Street in Ames, Iowa. Families travel to us from all over the Midwest because of the great experience we provide and the timeless artwork we create!
    When you receive one of our gifted experiences, you'll enjoy a complimentary session that is valued at $250, as well as a $1000 Fine Art Family Portrait credit, which is the value of our Signature 14-Inch Fine Art Portrait with rich artistry. To book your gifted experience, we kindly ask for a fully refundable security deposit of $200. We value your time and ours, and this helps prevent any no-shows or last-minute cancellations. As long as you don’t cancel or reschedule within 14 days of your appointment, it is fully refundable. Your experience with us includes a private portrait session with our skilled portrait artist, followed by a private viewing session with our art director. You will be able to see beautiful images from your session and will place your order at that time. You will work with your art director to choose your favorite images. Don't worry we're not deleting anything until you've selected the portraits to keep! Then you will be given the option to either choose one full family image to be produced into a 14” photographic print or create a custom order with additional or larger artwork for your home. If you choose to create something special for your home, your qualified art director will guide you through the best display options for the images you love and work with the space you have in your home. For any order you place with us, your $1000 credit will be applied to your purchase. We have payment options available and they will be offered to you to make the decision-making process easier.
