Why Come to Studio M?

Studio M provides custom portrait art of loved ones and priceless memories… top quality portrait art and Artpieces that cannot be found at  any ordinary photography studio. Our clients are interested in investing in artwork to be admired by all and cherished forever. Our lives are always changing and portraits are the gateway to our memories. We like to get to know our clients so that the portraits reflect who they are.

What to Expect?

We encourage our clients to plan. We understand that life is busy, but the portraits we create for you will be even more special if some time is spent planning for the perfect session. During our initial phone consultation, we will discuss what type of portraits you are looking for and anything unique you may have in mind. We will schedule your portrait session in addition to your sales appointment. At this time, we also take your session fee over the phone to secure your time with us. In-studio consultation sessions can be made and are encouraged, specifically for family sessions. Coming to the studio and meeting with Maria will help you visualize how you want to display your portrait art and will give you an opportunity to see our many product offerings.

The Portrait Session

Your clothing plays a large role in setting the tone of your portrait. Wear clothing discussed during your phone consultation and call should you have any questions. The hardest part is always getting ready. Do not rush around at the last minute. Planning is crucial. Please arrive on time and allow ample time for your session so that you can enjoy the experience. If you are bringing young children with you, remember to remain calm and collected. Children always react to our reactions. We love children and are used to working with them. Avoid showing frustration and telling them what to do. Trust us when we tell you, they will listen to us better than they will to you.
