The focus of our studio is creating unique portrait art of your beautiful pregnancy body, your delicate newborn miracle or your delightful growing baby that you will cherish each and every time you view it… portraits that will become heirlooms for future generations.
When you commission an artist for custom portraiture, there are many factors to consider. Do you prefer traditional photographic portraits or gallery wrapped canvases? Where do you envision displaying your portraits in your home? Do you prefer one or two very large portraits or a grouping of many? What sizes and colors are the walls that you wish to decorate with your portrait art? Do you have an accent color that you’d like incorporated into your portraits? Each of these questions will help you plan for your portrait art investment.
Dawn is happy to help you in your portrait art planning process. She can help you evaluate which of our portrait art collections bests suits your needs and ideas. Typically, clients will plan to invest anywhere from $900 to $4,000 on artwork and portrait art products created from their session; which would include stunning Wall Art pieces, Fine Art Books & Albums, Gift Portraits and Chic Boutique Items. Prior to your session, you will receive a complimentary pre-session design consultation with Dawn, the artist & photographer behind all the images you see on this site. This is when you and she will discuss specific posing, colors, props, etc. all in preparation for creating an heirloom art piece of your baby.
Dandelion Wishes® Photography studio is open Monday thru Friday by appointment only. We do not charge session fees. There is, however, a reservation fee of $100 per session in order to guarantee your session date and time in our schedule. This applies to all our sessions with the exception of our combined maternity and newborn session; the Bump & Baby Collection, which incurs a $150 reservation fee. Reservation fees do not include any portraits and are due upon scheduling your portrait session(s). Reservation fees are non-refundable but are transferable should you need to reschedule your appointment due to an emergency or illness. In addition, please understand that even though we may discuss a specific session date(s) as being available, we cannot hold it for you until the reservation fee has been received.
CUSTOM PORTRAIT WALL ART
Many options are available to transform your images into beautiful wall art for your home. Wall Art Portraits are either fully framed or gallery wrapped canvases and as such come ready to hang. Investments begin at $650 for a 16×20 gallery wrap, ready to hang canvas. These are absolutely spectacular!
Other custom photographic products including storyboards, brag books and our wildly popular birth announcements are all uniquely custom designed for you. Investment amounts vary and can be quoted during your design consultation.
Gift Portrait sizes include 5×7, 8×10 and 11×14. Investments begin at $40 for a 5×7 and $55 for an 8×10 when purchased in our very popular “Create Your Own” collection.
The Dandelion Wishes® studio has several choices of creative portrait collections:
Maternity – Bump: Coming soon! There is a new maternity session in the works that does not have to be booked with a newborn session. More details soon.
Newborn: The most popular newborn collection – our “Create Your Own” collection – gives you multiple choices in several categories. You will be able to customize your collection to your budget and your needs by choosing from Canvas Wall Art, Books & Albums, Gift Portraits and more. Our “Create Your Own” newborn collection starts at $1,650 and is by far the best value. Other newborn portrait collections start at $995.
Bump & Baby: This collection is a combination of one mini-maternity session and one newborn session. It includes a unique Portrait Art Box that includes your favorite poses printed as 5×7’s and matted as an 8×10. This collection also includes a beautiful gallery wrapped canvas of your favorite pose from either session. Please keep in mind that all maternity sessions are scheduled between 28 – 34 weeks of pregnancy only so it is important to schedule your sessions early as my schedule typically books up about 2-3 months in advance. Please inquire for pricing on this collection.
Baby: After newborn, the next best age/stage for a creative portrait art session of baby is right around 7-8 months. By that time, your little one should be sitting up well with little or no assistance. In addition, this is an age of great expressions, excellent eye contact, ample amounts of smiles and adorable baby chub; all of which give so many options for artistic posing with props. Please inquire for pricing on this collection.
