Why Valuable Lives?
Everyone has someone who is valuable to them. It could be a parent, a friend, a child, a mate, or a hopefully soon to be mate. ;) The thing about life is that time changes everything. And with that we forget all the extra expressions someone has. We might even forget what they sound like. I want to help change that. I want to help you remember all the extra expressions beyond just the smile that your valuable person has. It doesn't matter where your person has gone, you'll always be able to look back at each of those subtle and not so subtle expressions.
I've also been surprised to hear the number of people who have told me that they begin to forget what someone sounds like. Their laugh, their story, their expressive voice. I also want to help you to be able to remember the sound of those valuable lives.
I think what makes this special is that this kind of photography is a gift. It's a gift to you and a gift to them. This could be a family experience where you come and celebrate life together. You celebrate each other. You celebrate all of the special people in your life.
What should I expect?
You can expect to come into my studio to be a part of creating a memento to a Valuable Life. You'll be able to bring your special someone to come in for the sitting. We'll comfortably talk about why this person is so valuable to you. We'll capture various facial expressions of your Valuable person in black and white until we feel like we've gotten some really cool moments. I'll even show you the images on the back of the camera as we're going. After we've gotten some amazing images, we'll head into the viewing room to look through the images and make selections for your 3x3 collage. Once all the images have been chosen for the collage that day, you'll make the rest of your investment, and we'll have the collage professionally printed in two 8.5 x 11 prints and sent to you. Then you can do a print revealing with your Valuable person together once you've received your prints. You'll also get a social media sized digital image with a Prewitt Studios logo for sharing on social media.
You have the option to make larger printed art pieces as well.
We'll also take a few minutes to create up to a 5 minute audio recording of a story your Valuable person would like to share about their life or why they Value. You might even have a Valuable story you never want to forget, so you could ask your Valuable person to record that one for you.
Once the recording has been finished, I'll deliver it to you via a URL Link for download.
The investment for the in studio sitting, two black and white 8.5 x 11 prints mailed to you, a social media sized file with logo, and one up to 5 minute audio recording comes to $200 plus tax. There is a $25 non-refundable retainer fee to reserve your sitting time, and it will apply to your total investment at time of shoot.
Please visit the Contact page to let me know you want to invest in a gift for you and your Valuable person. I'll give you a call, and we can schedule a time to create this Valuable memory.
An additional note: I only mention this because of the day we live in, so I do want to say that every life is Valuable. I'm not trying to be political or anything else with this project. This is about the people in our lives who are instrumental and super valuable to us. I think we all have people in our lives who mean the world to us. This is for you and for them. Thanks! :)
