The Story of the Spilled Watermelon Martinis in 48 Photos
Have you ever done a family portrait, only to get it back from the photographer and think, “Huh! It’s nice, but it’s not really what I wanted.”
I know it’s happened to me and I know my clients choose Photillustrator because they want a family portrait that’s more than what they wanted.
Because each amazing family portrait gives us a glimpse into the lives of those in the portrait, today I’m going to share Jose and Tracy’s story of the spilled “Watermelon Martinis” and the 48 photos it took to create it.
By the time you’re finished reading this short article, I hope you see how Different our family portraits so you never feel the disappointment of a boring portrait again.
If you’re like most people, when you think of having your family portrait made, you think of everyone dressed up in the same clothes, smiling for the camera, and likely you don’t get too excited about the whole experience.
We don’t do that here at Photillustrator.
From step one when we meet with you for your Discovery Session, we want your family portrait experience to be DIFFERENT.
Once we’ve developed your story, understand who the characters are and their personalities, we create a Concept Sketch of your portrait for you to either make changes to or approve.
You have 100% control over how your family portrait turns out.
Upon getting your sketch approval, we begin the Photo Sessions that is followed by the digital artwork, then off to custom printing and framing, and finally your BIG Reveal.
Your BIG Reveal will be an experience, unlike anything you’ve had before.
Watermelon Martini Breakdown
I’m frequently asked, “How did you get everyone to do those crazy things all at one time to get a picture?”
Well, they don’t do all those crazy things all at one time.
Your family portrait by Photillustrator is handcrafted using many different photos, which in Jose and Tracy’s case was 48 different photos.
Think of it as many moments brought together in one amazing portrait.
