Drawing on decades of experience, we offer a four step process to ensure that every rider receives extraordinary portraits and service. Getting to know you and the unique personality of your horses, as well as your preferences is a critical part of the JL experience. Some riders prefer to capture moments in an editorial style, while others like a more posed approach with direct eye contact with the camera, with ears up.
Often we do both, believing that both are an important part of your recorded history. We can assist you with clothing selection, choosing the best location and time of day for your portraits and determining the ways you would most like to enjoy your finished portraits. We won't just hand you a disc and expect you to know what to do with it; instead we'll guide you every step of the way.
We are planners. We leave little to chance. A bespoke portrait means getting to know you, your riding history, your horses' personalities, and your aesthetic preferences before the photo session ever takes place. We'll also explore how you would most enjoy your finished portraits. Our process involves more effort on the front end in order to create more beautiful results. Your portraits should take your breath away.
We've planned our your equestrian session in advance and taken care of all the details. This helps you to relax and have fun! We'll guide you every step of the way, giving you prompts and poses. This is your time to enjoy your horse and entrust us with creating gorgeous custom portraits that will only become more meaningful to you as the years pass.
You're invited to attend a special cinematic presentation of your portraits at our screening room. Once you arrive in Lockhart, we'll welcome you to our historic Studio & Gallery and help you get settled on "Pinkie," our salmon-colored velvet couch. After reviewing your portraits with you, we'll assist as you choose your favorites and take care of any orders you'd like to place at this fun and celebratory meeting.
Your order is ready and has arrived! Perhaps you selected a gorgeous Italian Canvas to go above your mantle. Or maybe you ordered a gallery wall of your favorites. We not only hand deliver, we oversee the installation of your wall portraits at your Austin home so that we hang and you enjoy. We also deliver albums and boxes so that you can begin to delight in them as soon as they arrive.
