Right this way

Because those perfect moments won't capture themselves.

Begin with the end in mind

You know you need portraits made and want to document or celebrate this time of life! But what is the plan? How are the photos going to live? At Bellus, we begin with the end in mind for every portrait shoot because we want to create artwork that you proudly display in your home. With state-of-the art software, we can show you exactly what your artwork will look like hanging on your walls. 

We can partner with your interior designer also! As part of your artwork budget, we work hand in hand to create portraits that match the decor of your home. 
 
Another way to display your photos is in a luxurious, custom-designed album that lets you capture and preserve this stage of  life.

Your unique needs and concerns will guide your one-on-one Design Consultation.

Style & Concept Consultation

What to wear! It's such an important part of the experience. If you don't feel great in the clothing you chose, you will be uncomfortable during the photo shoot. Of course we are designing with the end in mind, so clothing choice will be determined by the style of shoot we plan. Are we creating rustic, very comfortable lifestyle photos or a very  "Kardashian" styled Vanity Fair inspired shoot where everyone is wearing formal attire?


You’ll leave your Design Consultation with a good idea about wardrobe for the shoot. We are available to consult about your outfits via phone, email, or zoom meeting if you have further questions or ideas.

We will finalize outfits about one week prior to your shoot to allow plenty of time for last minute changes and dry cleaning.

Wardrobe Collab

If you have had professional photographs made in the past, you might remember that it can be the the slightest bit stressful. How do I pose? What do I do with my hands? Why did I think I could pull this off? We have heard it all!

Not to worry, we have got your back! Your photo shoot is fully-guided and posed. When you first get to the studio, we get you settled in and comfortable (Would you like a glass of wine?) and we will handle the rest! 

We promise a good time! Photo shoots are so much fun!

Photo Shoot

Approximately one week after your photo shoot, you will come to the studio to view your images. This appointment is where you will finalize your portrait order, so be sure and schedule a time when all the decision makers can be there.

We use state-of-the-art software with photos of the walls in your home, to show your portraits scaled onto your very own walls, which solves the problem of what size to order! You will have the choice of other print products like Custom Designed Albums and Folio Box Collections.

We will guide you every step of the way using your goals from the consultation to achieve your vision to create photos that you will cherish for a lifetime.
