Capture Your Holiday Portraits with Portrait Innovations

I can't believe the Christmas season is upon us already! Like most families, we love to get pictures done of our family or kids every year. It's so important to catch those memories as child grow and change so quickly. This year, we decided to go to Portrait Innovations for our yearly and Christmas portraits.

Although it's a bit of a drive for us, we made our appointment at the Portrait Innovations in Davenport, Iowa location. We had a great experience with Adam, who is a very funny and patient photographer. Ellia, my 2-year-old, was a typical toddler and wasn't too interested in the photo shoot, but I really appreciated him being patient with her! Years ago, I worked for a competing photo chain, so I know first hand that it can take a lot of patience to photograph children, especially five!

I wanted to mention that initially our appointment was scheduled for a Friday afternoon, but my kids were sick with a stomach bug, so we had to reschedule. Setting and rescheduling appointments is such a breeze with Portrait Innovations. You can even schedule appointments online. 

Our appointment was on a week night right before dinner time, so I was halfway prepared for a disaster with cranky kids. However, the studio is such a fun, inviting environment that my kids felt completely "at home" during the photo shoot. Adam did a great job making sure we were completely happy with the photos he captured. 

We were able to receive our prints in studio the same evening, which was really nice. I was able to hand deliver some copies of the photos to grandparents right after the photo shoot. Certain packages include a CD with the images and copyright release, as well as an app for mobile devices that makes sharing images on social media a breeze. Here are some of my favorite poses!
