Design Consultation

This is the beginning of the DMP process. We want to know all about your family and kids. we will meet in the studio or by Zoom to develop a vision for your session, and review wardrobe suggestions, location planning, and creative display ideas, so you can stop dreaming about having amazing wall portraits and get them on the wall!

Portrait Session

This is where the fun happens! Relaxed yet paced to hold your children’s attention, be ready to have fun throughout the entire session. Even dad won’t hate it, which is really saying something!

View & Ordering Appointment

About a week after your session, we will meet in the studio to view your images. We will guide you through selecting your portraits and determining how they are displayed using your goals from the consultation to achieve your vision for your family portraits. We will show you just how they will look in your own home, so you can feel confident showcasing your new artwork.

Delivery & Installation

A few weeks after your ordering appointment, we will install your custom wall art in your home for you. No, adding to the honey-do list here – I promised you that this would be easy!

The Long-Term Plan

We know our kids keep growing and changing (crazy fast!). Once you’re part of the DMP Family, we help you create a vision for future sessions based on the ages and stages of your children and the design vision for your home. Our pieces are curated to look good now AND be able to move throughout your home as we add to your family collection.
