“Portraits are more than a celebration of what your love is today...
Portraits are a gift to the next generation, a legacy of what your love will always be.”
My name is Barbara Neely. But, you can just call me Barb or Barbie. Graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, mom, and wife. Not necessarily in that order. Lover of dogs, outdoors, sweatpants (hey, lets be real), food and life.
I believe photographs are so important in documenting this beautiful life we live. Life is short and memories fade. In the blink of an eye we’re 10 years older, the kids have moved away... You get where I’m going with this? One of the best things we can do for our children and grandchildren is leave them with photographs that tell our story, our legacy. Today they are just pictures for the Christmas card or something to share on Facebook. Tomorrow they will be priceless heirlooms. I want to help you not only create them but ensure they are preserved for generations.
What to expect…
Expect to have fun! Relax, it’s your day! I won’t pressure you to smile, that will come naturally. Many of the great images I capture are the candid shots, when you relax and I capture those moments of you just being you.
After your session you will NOT be handed a CD and left with the overwhelming decisions of what to print and where all on your own. As a full service photographer I believe in sharing my expertise all the way through the process. At your order appointment you'll choose your favorite images and products. Then, together we will design your own custom collection pairing the perfect images with the products you love. You will be able to choose from wall art prints, albums, small mounted prints, custom image boxes, metal prints, canvases and more! You can even add a modern mobile app and online digital archive to your collection! Prints start at $50 and albums start at $550. The average family will invest $1500 on their family portrait experience and heirloom products.
Finally, I'll carefully retouch your selected images and send them to the best professional photo labs in the industry. The final prints will be quality checked by me personally and delivered only when I'm 100% happy with the quality of the finished piece.
