The aim of your portrait experience
Dragonfly Portraits prides itself on providing a unique, beautiful portrait experience as well as producing beautiful, quality prints and products to feature in your home and celebrate your family. One of the best ways to do that is through a stunning wall art collection that has been specifically created from start to finish, just for your family – but will most importantly last for 100 years.
Buying photography is a long term investment, a very long term I’m talking 30, 40, 60+ years so each product has been sourced of the highest quality of materials to ensure they last as long as we need them to.
Throughout history, prints and albums have served as an essential record of a family’s history. Nowhere else can a person find a visual document of the bond and connections within a family. By creating an album and printing your photos, you will be contributing to your family history by ensuring that future generations have a tangible record of how their family came to be over time. While it may be hard to imagine great grandchildren so far down the road, it is more than likely that they will one day have your album passed down into their hands, and they will become the new owner.
Are digital files all you need? No. It’s hard to believe that only 10 years ago the VHS video was phasing out and USBs hadn’t even had their big moment. The digital age is changing so quickly and means, while we are storing things on smaller and smaller devices and using cloud storage we actually make them less easily accessible and run the risk of losing them for our generations to come. An album is a beautiful, tangible way to see, share and remember the good old days. I recently couldn’t show my own children our wedding video as we no longer have a VHS player. I can no longer show my children (or see for myself), 8mm Film Reels from when I was a child… However I can show my children photographs of myself with my Great Grandmother when I was 1 week old.
I have packages available starting from $550, or you can purchase individual pieces of wall art (canvas, wood or framed). Each and every portrait you buy comes with its high and low resolution file for you to keep on USB, whether you buy a framed print, or 20 portraits in an album or 10 portraits in a portrait box you will receive the digital files also, with the only exception being the Keepsake Album.
I also have beautiful wall art collections for you. Your wall art comes complete and ready to hang, available is a beautiful range of products to suit everyone’s needs, style and budget starting at $1100.
To give you an idea, my clients tend to spend between $1100 – $3500, some update their portraits, some re-decorate their home. But if you’re like most of my families, you’ll love each and every portrait, and will want to keep them all.
To make things easy I accept credit card payments, and offer the freedom of a 6 to 8 week lay-by.
We invest in experiences, not stuff. So at the end of our lives we have memories and stories to tell, not just things.
