Classic Heirloom

With our trusted experience and over a decade behind the camera, we offer a full-service photo shoot that includes everything from wardrobe planning to visualizing your own custom collection photo gallery. Clients are photographed in the studio on a custom painted canvas backdrop.5G0A0344_1

The result is a classic, timeless image of your family – something you couldn’tduplicate with a point-and-shoot camera or a smartphone’s many lens filters. Instead, you are left with a family heirloom, an artwork that’s ready to hang on your wall for years to come.


You are photographed in the studio with a large format camera, then Nicole develops the film in her darkroom AKA studio bathroom.  This film produces a one of a kind image, both a positive and negative print. You will have a portrait like no one else. View our New 55 film gallery.

New 55 film is a reincarnated Polaroid large format film.
