PRESERVING YOUR MEMORIES IN PRINT & FILLING YOUR HOME WITH portraits of THE FACES YOU LOVE MOST

What to Expect When you Schedule Your Appointment

We Begin With The End in Mind

You know you need family portraits but what are you going to do with them? At CCB we begin with the end in mind.

Before we ever pick up a camera, we have a plan for where and how these photos will hang in your home or the story we want to tell with the photos in your heirloom folio box or in your family album.

Do you have a tall, skinny spot above your fireplace? Let’s create an amazing iconic image to hang there. Perhaps you want to start a family gallery incorporating older images with the new portraits you are commissioning. We can make that happen.

Your unique needs and concerns will guide your one-on-one collaboration meeting

Collaborate

Because I can't do what I do without you!

The Collaboration meeting begins the CCB Process.
This is where we begin to learn all about your family and kids. What their personalities are like? Who’s the rule-follower and who’s the rebel? Understanding your family dynamics allows us to capture their personalities and their relationships as they really are.

Your every question will be answered, including:
What types of clothing photograph best?
What are the most suitable areas of your home for your family portraits?

A full understanding of the investment you’ll be making based on the portrait plan we create.
And other burning questions such as whether or not to bring the family pet (the answer is, “yes!”)

Create

If you’ve had your family photographed in the past, you might remember that it can be the teeniest bit stressful. Dad’s not on board and the kids didn’t nap (or woke up cranky). Not to worry. As the mother of three and a former elementary school teacher, Cate is familiar with all types of kid shenanigans at every age and stage. If you can get them dressed and get to the session location, we will handle the rest.

Whether we're out on location, in your home, or in the studio, we're ready to help you create treasured memories together during the session while freezing time in the photographs.


Design & Order

Approximately one week after your photo shoot, you will come to the studio for your View and Order appointment. Your View and Order appointment is the time set aside to finalize your portrait order, so be sure and schedule a time when both mom and dad (and any other decision maker) can be there.

Using our state-of-the-art software and photos of the walls in your home, we will show your portraits scaled onto your walls, which solves the problem of what size to order; not too big, not too small, but just right!

We will guide you every step of the way using your goals from the collaboration meeting to achieve your vision for your family portraits.

From beautiful rolling hills to the quaint, homey feel of Main Street in Franklin and the glitz of downtown Nashville, Middle Tennessee is always the perfect backdrop for your portraits.
But I'm also always up for a road trip, so if your dream location is out of town, let's go.


Sometimes the most comfortable spot to be photographed is in your own home.

This is especially great for families with tiny ones that aren’t quite ready to get out of the house.

Clean, fun, and vibrant, our studio sessions celebrate your family's personalities by creating long lasting art for your home that stands the test of time.

Great for kids of all ages -- let their personalities shine through in these modern family sessions.

We will always remember exactly what our kids were like at this precious age.

When I look at those photos,
I remember times when we smiled,
especially when times were hard.
