We recently celebrated my little boys' 9th birthday and I was in shock of how fast time flies. Aren't we all? I cannot believe he is going to be a 4th grader in the fall. I just want time to stop and stand still for just a little while so I can soak up the sweetness that is this 9 year old boy.
I was so excited to get an invitation to visit The Portrait Studio of Asheville (know now as Portrait Innovations) and have a mother and son photo shoot! The studio is brand spanking new and it is really nice. I like the layout. There are two camera rooms or mini studios if you will. There is also a small dressing room available for clients that would like to change into different outfits for their shoot. We took them up on that offer!
One of the camera rooms
I loved all of their backdrops. There are so many to chose from!
Bethany was our photographer for the day and she was AWESOME!
She gave us so many options and really knew how to capture my son and me in the best, most natural poses. She told me to bring a few outfits so we could change and get some different looks.
This was my favorite back drop. It went so well with the laid back jeans and tee shirt look I was going for.
I did a "jeans and a tee shirt" theme, a sports theme and a dressy theme. Here's the sporty look. I LOVED this one! She got one of us doing push ups! Too cute. My son loved it.
I was really pleased at how Bethany styled us for the more dressier theme.
She got some SUPER ADORABLE ones of my son!
When we were done shooting Bethany met us at the viewing station and we started the hard part...choosing our favorites!
While we were choosing, they made a cd for us that holds ALL the photos from the day. The photos you choose to print will usually be ready for pick up in about a week. You will sign up online for an online account and you will be able to see your photos there as well. There is really so much access to your photos. Don't panic that you will miss any of them. Online is also where you can order some more personalized items (mugs, calendars, etc).
Look at all the photos I got! The quality is excellent and the package options let you get a lot of poses.
You can also get a hardcover or softcover book of the portraits you chose to go in the book.
Honestly, they have so many awesome specials and bonus offers that are going on I can't even list them all! Depending on what special they have going on you can get a ton of extra add on's.
They are open on the weekends too! Perfect for busy families.
The studio is located at
1833 Hendersonville Road, Unit 170
Asheville, NC 28803
Wednesday - Sunday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
