Why Forget Me Not?- Greensboro childrens and family photographer

Forget Me Not photography offers a unique contemporary, lifestyle portraiture style that strives to capture who you are, who your kids are, and how you live your life together. Our vision is to capture the forget me not moments for which you all will so dearly cherish in the years to come. That means personality, fun, silliness, joy, laughter. We aren't your typical portrait studio, and it shows not only in our work, but in our level of commitment to our clients.

Every client is unique, every photo session with us is individual, and every final product is customized with you in mind. Forget Me Not photography requires a level of commitment for both the client and the photographer. I am committed to bringing you the highest quality portrait experience. I see a maximum of 3 clients per week so that I can offer you the highest level of service and be focused on your family, and your needs during our time together. I am committed to bringing you the highest quality of products available on the market today. That includes prints, custom framing, albums, and more for you to enjoy.

What I ask in return from my clients is that you look at our experience together as an important investment to our family. As time goes by and your children grow, I promise that you will cherish these images. I can say that not only as a mother who is watching my own child grow so quickly, but as an artist who has a rare appreciation for beauty and for creating beautiful things. I also ask that you would take an active role as I create these treasures for your family by interacting, being yourself, and most importantly... I want you to have fun!

Every session is personalized for you. What that means is that no two sessions with clients will ever be the same. Props, lighting, mood, posing, etc will be different for every family. The reason is, I want you to have something unique and beautiful designed only for you. I want you to have something that speaks to who you are, or who your kids are, and I want you to have something that you are proud to have hanging on your wall, sitting on your shelf, and more importantly to pass down for generations to come.

The following is just a small exert from the professional children's photographer website, but I think it offers a good explanation of who we are, and what our clients will receive from us.

"Clients who enjoy taking a more active role in the creation of their families’ memories have the desire to have portrait art that is truly personalized. These more discerning clients have been known to budget and allot time for a custom photography session. Many clients opt for it to be a once a year special experience, some opt to have custom photography sessions done to record their child’s stages in life. Having said this, it is clear that custom photography is not in everyone’s budget, it is something that most families save for to splurge on from time to time to memorialize their children as they really are (not posed and primped in the cookie cutter studio setting).

There is a great deal of time involved in creating high end custom photography sessions for a client. The luxury of great service, better choices and a supberb end product. The result of all this are heirloom quality images. The time invested at the session is only a small portion of the time spent.

Custom photography has been likened to purchasing a fine vehicle. To get to point B from A let’s face it, even a bus ride would suffice. If you want to luxuriate in a finely appointed vehicle, customizing your own experience by listening to smooth jazz while sitting in a climate controlled setting adjusted purely for your comfort in a body hugging leather interior, perhaps that Lexus you so desire is your cup of tea. Custom photography is much the same cup of tea. It is the Lexus of the photography world. It is where the intangibles make the experience truly wonderful and the images themselves make the investment of money and time truly worthwhile.

Custom photography can be broken down into even more levels. There are on location, studio, mixed studio/on location, specialty location and destination type photographers. The beauty of custom photography is in the choices and in the luxury of thoses options. The customized service level you are sure to experience will be amazing. The knowledge that your final images are the result of someone caring about those moments so much that they take extra time ensuring that the artwork you receive is good enough to stand by with their name on it. That level of quality and commitment is all but lost in the age of "mass produced," "mass marketed," corporate "everyone is a number". Custom photography is based on being unique to you. How great an experience would be, to be able to sit back and allow a photographer to do this highly custom work for images that you will most likely cherish for a lifetime?

Keep in mind more than anything that the Lexus will never appreciate in value the way your portraits will. The portrait art you become invested in from your custom photographer will no doubt increase in value and become more priceless as the years pass."
