Never in a million years would you imagine pampering yourself and treating yourself to such an experience and that’s the exact reason why you should.

Is this you?

My photoshoot with Imiivo Photo Studios surpassed my expectations. I am still in awe of the photos taken during my photoshoot. I find myself going back to the photos and wondering who is the woman in the pictures? 

Then I remind myself that the woman in the pictures is me!  

Shané was so professional and patient. Her pre-photoshoot welcome package and wardrobe consultation helped me to prepare and made me feel good about doing something for myself.  

The final product simply wowed me and reinforced that there are "camera phone" pictures and then there are "professional" pictures. The finished product of the professional pictures was absolutely worth it, and I had fun during the session. 

Shané has a way of coaching you through and making you feel at ease. I look forward to booking future sessions.

It’s amazing how others can see A light in us that we can’t see in ourselves.

The focus is YOU. 

Celebrate where you are on your journey today. with timeless portraits that last forever.

No fluff with us. 

Nerd Warning...

At the turn of the 20th century, it was a big deal to have your portrait taken, no matter who you were. 

Portraits are more than just images or digital files on a computer.

They are history, memory, transformation, moments, celebration and a journey recorded for generations to come. 

And on a personal level,
My mother was always the one behind the camera but rarely in front. 

After she passed I longed to have portraits of her.
I yearned to be more connected. 

It’s more than just an image.

FAQ'S

How far in advance should I book my session?

It is best to book your Imiivo Photo Session at least 3-4 weeks in advance.

This allows us time to prepare the fun details and for you to schedule your desired session date.

Sometimes we are booked 1month or more in advance as our calendars fill up quickly.

How long is the session?

The session lasts approximately 2 hours plus 1 hour for your complimentary professional makeup session in the studio. 

Do you provide gowns and wardrobe?

We have gowns, full skirts and robes in a variety of sizes for your use. For our higher tier Collections, we have even ordered gowns for a client’s specific expressed needs. If you are not a gown person and prefer sneakers, we got you covered. Just show up as you and we’ll take care of the rest.

Can you print and frame the images?

Absolutely! Not all your photos have to live on a digital cloud. In fact, it’s best if they do not. 

And not all your photos have to be stored on your phone that you never get around to printing or doing anything with.

Think about where your DVD or VCR player is and how all the money you invested in that new technology is almost obsolete now.

When you print your images, you are not only displaying beautiful custom wall art in your home but you are also showcasing the moments and the loved ones you value. Our archival prints are meant to last at least 50 years.

Is this portrait experience for you?
