What are the best stores to shop for portrait clothing?

This is a common question we get while planning a family's portrait session, and there is no wrong answer.  We encourage families to wear clothing that fits the style and personality of the room in which the portrait will hang.  It's important to stick with styles of clothing and colors that make you feel comfortable and the most confident.  Most likely you have something in your closet that will work.  If you are looking for a new outfit or trying to coordinate your family's outfits, there are some local and online stores you can check out.

You'll find some of these stores are a one stop shop for everyone which can make shopping easy.  Be sure to showcase each person's individual style and don't forget the accessories!

For tips and ideas on coordinating clothing and using color palettes just request our Complimentary Clothing Guide and Pat will send you an email shortly.

At the time of this message hurricane Dorian has its eye on our east coast.  It's game time for preparations and we get a lot of questions about what to do with our portraits.  Our portrait archives go back 40 years so feel safe we can reproduce your treasure if something were to happen.  We no longer have wedding archives so you will need to protect your wedding albums and the negatives if you purchased them.

Below is a great check list of preparation reminders I found on

Call Lesa and let her help you design the perfect portrait to fill that blank space in your home.

Where is your wall that needs a bit of "something"?

We all have one, that blank space that needs "something".  The Castellon family came to us with a vision for theirs... a niche that needed a family portrait.  Cultivating their vision, Lesa was able to guide them from clothing selection to best compliment this space in their home to the perfect size portrait.  The niche’ went from needing "something" to perfectly complete. Now, not only do they have a beautiful piece of art completing the design of their home, they also have a moment of history captured forever.

What is the first thing you want seen in your home? Call 321-269-1567 and Lesa will guide you through the process in 3 easy steps.

When we entered the Barlow's beautiful home, we wanted to create an anchor piece. The Barlow's have a beautiful eye for art and we were inspired by the pieces currently showcased in their home.  Lesa used this beautiful blue piece as a guide to suggest clothing colors and help choose a place of honor for their statement portrait. The piece of art created in their favorite place tells the story of the Barlow family at one glance. The decision to create this portrait on metal as opposed to canvas gave it the perfect touch to compliment to the beautiful style of their home.

Do you have a location that tugs at your heart? Call and let Lesa guide you through the process of creating a portrait for your home in this special location.

Not too long ago, the Ware family picked up their roots and moved to the GA/TN area. They reached out and asked if Gregory ever travels to photograph families... The simple answer to this question is ABSOLUTELY! We want to meet your family in the stage you are in. If that means another state, so be it! Gregory and Lesa met the Ware family at a beautiful location they chose in their area and Lesa was able to walk them through clothing selections and sizing options for the most harmonious feel in their home. As is evident, their portrait is absolutely stunning and the perfect addition to their family's home.
