Portrait Art in Your Home

Our Patterson Process helps to ensure you receive exactly what you had planned.

Custom portrait art is a perfect addition to your home decor and our studio has many custom and unique opportunities to incorporate portraits into your home.

Our Victorian studio, Portrait Garden or Your House

Our Victorian studio and portrait garden makes it convenient for many families. The garden is especially beautiful during the spring and fall but we usually have blooms throughout most months of the year. If you would prefer, we certainly photograph on location and can come to your home or meet you at that perfect location you may desire.

Creation Fees, which covers our time and talent (service), begin at $150 for studio or garden portraits with location sessions at $250. Print portrait pricing starts at $50 for 8x10" gift prints, and our Discounts provide a significant potential savings of up to 20% allowing you to create your own package personalized to your family.

Payment of the Creation Fee reserves your session date and includes a consultation session, the session itself and our View and Choose session a few days after the original session.

I would highly recommend Greg Patterson for any of your occasions, believe me, it would be worth it to travel-like I did.

We picked up my son's senior portraits yesterday! They were absolutely amazing!!! Better than I could have ever imagined! Thank you all so much! Great professional service before, during and after the session! We will definitely suggest you to our friends!

Darla S.

Our family portrait session was relaxed and lots of fun. The variety of ways Greg had us pose to get the right personality stood out. Greg obviously cares about what he's doing and likes people. You won't be disappointed - Well worth the investment.

Melissa B.

I can't begin to express my appreciation for all that you provided for our family photo. From the very beginning of this adventure, you gave me your full attention to what would help make everyone feel at ease. Your outstanding people skills provided us with an A+ morning

Helen O.

Our family pictures are gorgeous and we were so surprised as we could not believe how many good pictures we had to choose from. It can be so hard to photograph 3 kids under the age of 5. The pictures were amazing!

Stephanie C.

Every session has been very professional, fun for my daughter, and most productive. Greg is wonderful, patient, so good with kids. My daughter can be rather shy but she always warms up to Greg. And I love seeing the final product.

Dana C.

The pictures are always very high quality. My friends and family are just blown away by the backgrounds, fun poses, great expressions, and (again) the quality of the photos. If you want amazing pictures of your children and family, THIS is the studio to choose.

Dana C.

Everyone who has seen my pictures loves them. We're really excited to do our little boy's newborn pics this week. And my husband, who hates taking pictures, wants to come back in the spring for family photos. Now that says something!

Kathy R.

My children have been photographed by Greg Patterson for the past 10 years. He always does an amazing job, and each time I feel like it is more and more difficult to narrow down the photos. I cherish the memories he helps to capture in time.

Lori H.

The portraits of my daughter were perfect. We are so proud of all the work they did. We had a great experience with the whole Patterson Studio Crew before, during and after the shoal Worth every penny.

Rhonda C.

Thank you for taking such wonderful pictures of our wedding! They are all so beautiful. We will be telling others how great all of you are both personally and professionally.
