The Patterson Process

What to Expect at G. Patterson Photographic Studio

Design Consultation Appointment

The free Design Consultation is where we decide on where your portrait art will be displayed, clothing, where we will photograph, investment and all the important details that make up a high-quality artistic portrait. This appointments usually lasts 15 minutes and is the first and most important step in creating portraits that you will cherish.

The Portrait Session

The portrait session is where we carefully create your portraiture based on our design consultation plans. Most sessions last around 30 minutes to an hour. The portrait session typically takes place at the studio however location sessions are available by request.

The Big Show

Once the portrait session is complete, we schedule a time to show the previews using our digital projector in the comfort of our studio. During this preview process, we have the ability to project your images up to a 40x40. We carefully help you select the best poses and expressions along with custom framing options. We strongly suggest that all decision makers are present as your order will be placed during this session. Ask us about our ability to show you what your portrait will look like in YOUR home which helps you to select the perfect sized portrait.

Online Gallery

The studio and grounds were simply amazing and I can't think of anywhere else we would of liked better to share in such a special memory of graduation. Thanks for working so well with Crash(the dog) and for the delicious cookies!!

I had a GREAT experience and the outcome was totally worth it! My pictures couldn't be better and I don't think I would ever go anywhere else to take pictures for any occasion!

Brittany H.

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.
