Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.

Pro Tip: Newborns are best photographed within the first 10 days of life.
Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
The birth of a baby will mark the most defining moment in a person's life. From that day forward,
everything changes and means everything. And in just weeks, your new little one will no longer fit so tiny in your arms. They are only this little for a very short time. With a newborn portrait session at Diane Bartoo Photography, we help you preserve those memories forever.
What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?
We provide beautiful pregnancy clothing for mamas. These gowns are top-quality and made from chiffon and silk so that we can capture gorgeous flowing movement of the dress. Our newborn wraps are made from angora, merino wool, and cashmere. You will not need to purchase anything for mama or baby; all props, blankets, and head pieces are made from the finest materials and are available for your use.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
Pregnancy and newborn photography are best done within a specific point of development. I like to photography pregnant mamas between 32 and 37 weeks so we have a beautifully round belly and mama is still feeling active. Newborn babies are best photographed before they are 10 days old. These are only guidelines for best-case scenarios, and we do photograph outside these guidelines.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I am very comfortable working with mamas and newborns. With 20 years of photography experience and over five of those years working exclusively with mamas and newborns, I have perfected my craft in the pregnancy and newborn photography industry.
Cean Orrett, an avid shutterbug since age 5, has captained a team of likeminded photographers at Cean One Photography Studios for more than 15 years. Rather than relying on the same setups and compositions for every shoot, Cean and his team customize their approach to the clients in question, whether they're newlyweds or high school seniors. Depending on their clients' preferences, they shoot sessions inside their San Diego studio or in the great outdoors throughout California, capturing candid images to suit each subject's personality. The same guiding principles fuel Cean One?s film subset, in which he documents milestone events such as parties, weddings, or baby's first doctoral thesis.

After the birth of her first child, Maria Kersten-Hakeem began snapping photos as a way to capture each moment. She continued this tradition with her next two children, and now shares her talent with others as a self-taught photographer. During photo sessions for couples, families, and moms-to-be, Maria strives to bring resonance to each image?turning the flicker of a baby?s smile or a bride and groom?s first kiss into a lifelong memory.
