My name is Megan Lacy and I would be honored to make some memories with you.
WHAT IS CUSTOM PORTRAITURE?
Simply put, custom portraits are photographs of you and your loved ones that you commission from a quality portrait artist. Clients are often involved in details of the planning process (for example, the opposite of chain studios you may see in the mall).
high-quality work, impeccable service.
Currently located in Clarksville, TN, I specialize in a fully-tailored portrait experience. A session with me means that you will be gently guided through the entire process to ensure that you receive high quality portraits of your family, have fun at your session, and leave with beautiful artwork. I take service seriously, working with only a few clients per month to ensure the attention to detail that your memories deserve. While this is a partnership, my goal is to take as much weight off of your shoulders as possible. Wardrobe planning, and delivery are included. Together, we create the images that you will cherish for generations to come, designed specifically with your home and taste in mind. This extends beyond your portrait session to the professional printing, display, and sharing of your memories.
Your personal archive.
In an era where everything is disposable, your family's memories are priceless and deserve to be preserved and cherished. I provide archival quality products that do just that. With added protections against light and the use of acid-free and lignen-free materials, your images will be enjoyed for generations. Photographs are often our most prized possessions; they deserve to be treated as such.
The Signature Anthology
You'll adore the Signature Anthology's simple elegance & versatility. 10 inch prints of your portraits are mounted as artwork in 11x14 conservation mats. The stunning custom presentation box acts as an unbound album, allowing you to reminisce while viewing each piece, or you can create aneasy gallery walls in your home that you'll enjoy daily.
Step 1: Booking
After you get in touch, we'll schedule an in-person consultation so we can talk in-depth about everything you want your session to be. You'll also view work from past clients, and feel the quality of my Signature Anthologies, framed prints, gallery canvases, and more. By appointment only.
3-6 weeks in advance is usually a good time to book as space is very limited. If you're unsure of a specific date just let me know the month or season you are interested in and we can get specific later. A signed Portrait Contract and Portrait Reservation Fee is required to be officially booked and reserve your date.
Step 2: The Session
Before any photographs are created, we will meet in person to chat about the details of your session. This meeting is extremely important! We'll talk outfits, styling, locations, your personal photography taste, and must-have products. This planning will be fun, but it also helps me determine how best to photograph during your portrait session.
Your PORTRAIT SESSION
Sit back and and let me take care of everything. I’ll work to create the photos you've been dreaming of while you have fun!
Step 3: Creating Your Artwork
VIEW & CHOOSE APPOINTMENT
Shortly after your portrait session, you'll see the beautiful moments we captured for the first time. You'll watch a slideshow of all your images while enjoying refreshments and relive the fun of your Session Day. Then you'll choose all of your favorites and decide on products to preserve these memories for generations.
Depending on the specific artwork you have chosen, your portraits will be delivered within 2-4 weeks. Unwrapping your items and putting them on display is just as exciting as seeing them for the first time!
All sessions include:
- In-depth planning before your Portrait Session
- Wardrobe Styling
- Your Portrait Session, usually an hour in length
- Your Private View & Choose Appointment, held shortly after your Session
Portrait Reservations: $350.
