Bonjour! I am originally from France and settled in Atlanta in 2008 after teaching in St. Louis for many years. My husband and I have two vivacious little girls and as one quickly finds out as a parent, the days are long but the years are short.
This sense of evanescence birthed the will to become more intentional with the type of images I surrounded our daily lives with. Art work that is meaningful and personal. That lifts us up, makes us proud, celebrated, custom art that makes us reminisce or simply lift our spirit when we walk by it after a rough day.
People describe my style as bright, romantic and whimsical. I strive for my portraits to have a dream like quality, to evoke a sense nostalgia, a fleeting moment frozen in time.
Over the years, I noticed that the basic photography process felt backwards, impersonal even.
Meeting strangers at the park with no rapport or going to their home for their ordering session only to find out that I could have served them in a much better way had I known their family better, their style or which wall they wanted to elevate.
Those seeds were planted and VOILA WALL ART sprouted.
As a problem solver, I knew I could help making my process a better experience for my clients. They wanted gorgeous custom art on their walls but most didn't know where to start or lacked the time.
I created a Boutique full service experience I come to you every step of the way, from creation to selection, to help you design custom artwork tailored for you family and home.
I streamline the process in order to serve my clients from beginning to end and offer them a quality finished product that will be archivally preserved, an investment that will increase in value as their children grow.
1) INITIAL PHONE CALL: We usually discuss your wishes, discuss the process and set up a date for an in person consultation.
1) IN HOME CONSULTATION: No more meeting a stranger at the park! To better serve you, I want to get to know your family first, assess your needs, show you samples and plan your custom session together. We will then secure you shooting date, location, discuss wardrobe, props and any details needing attention.
2) SHOOTING DAY
3) ORDERING SESSION: We typically schedule this appointment about 2-3 weeks after the session. I will curate a gorgeous selection of only the very best portraits. After viewing your portraits presentation, we will then craft your custom art piece with the assistance of a design software to show you various options on virtual walls and fine tune any further edits you might like to see.
4) DELIVERY: About 4 weeks later, your handcrafted art will be hand delivered to you and ready to hang! And if you need help with that final part, that can also be arranged!
" Vanessa came to my house for an in-home consultation so that she could view my space and help me decide on portrait groupings, sizes and colors. She brought samples of her products and frames so that I could see how they would look in my space. She has many unique products besides standard frames and albums. Ordering was seamless and on delivery day, she brought them to my house carefully and beautifully wrapped. I ordered a framed portrait grouping and a set of circular wood plaques, and they all came out beautifully. Every step of the way, Vanessa was a great communicator and extremely professional. Vanessa truly cares about the client’s experience. I highly recommend her!"
