Open for 2018

TMP is officially back from Winter Break!

2017 was a pretty good year for us: we had a new baby, I finally began working full-time as a photographer, and I was graced with a many humbling life-lessons, which I’m always grateful for.

One major thing that happened last year was the Revamp. I had planned on keeping everyone updated on the in’s and out’s of everything that was happening as it happened, but, I’m not going to lie, adjusting to full-time momtrepreneur was more than I anticipated. With that said, the Revamp brought many changes internally, that shouldn’t affect you all too much, and some changes that you won’t help but be able to notice.

Ultimately, the Revamp was the first step to turning TMP into a full-service Wedding and Portrait Studio. A larger studio space is in the works, but it was absolutely necessary to establish some new systems to make sure our clients have a portrait experience they’ll never forget.

Refined Booking System
I’m excited to say that we have been booking more and more sessions (you may want to check out our FAQ about how early to book your sessions), which also meant we needed to revisit some things to create a system that allows us to take in more inquiries without them getting lost among the many other emails coming in.

Now, when you’re ready to book your portrait reservation, we have a new client portal system to keep track of all of the details of your session and portrait order. The best part, all you have to do is send the inquiry from our Inquiry Form and you’ll automatically be sent booking information and be added into our studio queue.

 

Custom Styling + Styling Guide
In the past, clients often came to me saying that they didn’t know what to wear to their session, or how to do their hair and makeup, and since this was for their portraits, it could sometimes be stressful. To ensure you get the best experience when planning for your portraits, you will have a one-on-one style consult where we’ll talk about how you want to look in your portraits and go over every detail.

We will discuss everything from basic wardrobe, to hair and makeup, and even any insecurities you may have about your body so that I can plan on how to pose you. The goal for every session is to create beautiful pictures that you love with all of your heart, and the Custom Styling + Styling Guide allows you to truly design the perfect portrait session.

In-Person Reveal + Order Session
Ok, so in the past, figuring out how to sell portrait products was tough for me, but there is something so powerful in holding a physical portrait. I cannot begin to describe the joy that wells up in my heart when I hold portraits of my own family. And if I’m truly being transparent, I get the feeling as I’m putting the final touches of my client’s orders. Seriously, printing your portraits is such an important part of your portrait process, and I want all of my clients to have gorgeous heirloom portraits that leave a legacy for their family’s future generations.  

When your portraits are ready, clients are invited to return to see their images and choose their favorites to build their Portrait Order using our simple pricing menu. Being in-person allows whatever questions you have to be answered right then, taking out the hassle of sending emails back and forth, playing phone tag, and putting more time between you and your final product. We want you to get excited about designing your portrait display, and we’re here to help however we can.

New Service
Remember how I said clients often were overwhelmed by hair and makeup? Well, now we will have (drumroll please!)….

HAIR AND MAKEUP STYLING WITH SESSION BOOKINGS!

Yes, friends! TMP now has a hair and makeup artist to help ease the stress of achieving that picture-perfect look for  your portraits.

“Who is this artist?” you may ask, well, that is a blog saved for another day, so stay tuned for the big introduction.

 

Well, friends, that’s all I have for you this post. I’ll be back to share some stories from TMP and give more insight into who we are as a company, but for now I just want to say: thank you for reading.

Life, Love, & Dance | Bay Area Photographer | Wedding Photography

Ok, I know, the title sounds a tad bit cheesy, but bare with me for a bit. I promiseit’ll make sense soon. Mariana + Frank 12Mariana + Frank 1

Quick back story: Mariana and Frank decided to have a small courthouse wedding, but wanted to host a reception so they could celebrate their union with their loved ones– and what a celebration it was. Mariana + Frank 2Mariana + Frank 6Mariana + Frank 13

I met the groom, Frank, at his cousin’s wedding; he was the best man and I was the photographer. Frank’s family knows how to party, and how to show their guests a great time– I had a blast capturing that wedding reception! To add to their party skills, Frank’s family also had an amazing love for life that was felt throughout both Frank’s, and his cousin’s wedding. And Frank’s bride’s family had the same amazing love for life. Mariana + Frank 10Mariana + Frank 3

Mariana, Frank’s gorgeous bride, has a great family also. Her family traveled all the way from Brazil to celebrate Mariana’s wedding; Her beautiful mom and sisters, her sisters’ husbands, her father, and her nieces and nephews. Although they were few in number, they made up for it with their presence on the dance floor.  Seriously, their dance moves were breath taking! Just watching made we want to take a vacation in Brazil. I’m even trying to talk my husband into lessons 🙂  Put these two families together for a celebration, and you have one hot wedding reception; amazing dancing (from the entire family), great food, good company, hundreds of laughs and smiles– simply beautiful.Mariana + Frank 7Mariana + Frank 9

Everyone was enjoying themselves so much, we ran out of time for bride and groom portraits (but we were still able to sneak in a few). Even their little one joined in with the festivities! Mariana has such a beautiful, loving spirit, and Frank obviously knows he’s found the perfect wife in his lovely bride. Should he ever happen to forget, one look at her and their adorable little boy is all the reminder he’ll need; I’m sure of it.  I was lucky enough to witness two marriages in this family, and I can wait to capture all of their new memories in the years to come. Mariana + Frank 11 Mariana + Frank 4 Mariana + Frank 5Mariana + Frank 8
