Welcome to Geraldine Ralph photography! My studio is located in Oakland County. I photograph weddings, families, children and seniors. Sessions take place in studio and outdoors to create beautiful timeless images. Whether you are looking for fun outdoor family photos, a session that celebrates your budding romance or a cozy warm indoor session for the newest addition to your family, we’ve got a session for you!
My cozy home studio is focused on creating stunning modern family portraiture. My goal is to create beautiful timeless images that your family will treasure for years to come. My favorite style of photography is the sun drenched, dreamy, backlit outdoor portrait taken just just before dusk. I love the timeless feel of golden sunlight setting a field of wild grass ablaze behind my subject! It reminds me to slow down and enjoy the beauty of the moment.
My goal is to create timeless, beautiful family portraits that you will be proud to display in your home for years to come!
My favorite product to produce are big beautiful canvases and canvas collections. I believe everyone's family room walls should tell the most beautiful story of the family that occupies the space. I strive to create the most BEAUTIFUL stories by refining my craft so that you have breathtaking portraits for your home.
What to expect - Your session start to finish:
Pre-consultation - Before your session we will have an in studio or phone consultation to customize the perfect session for you. At this time we will also schedule your session date and collect the non-refundable retainer fee for your session. During our consultation, I will email you a PDF outlining everything you will need to know to make your session run smoothly.
Reminder - A few days before your session you will receive a text or email reminder of the date, time and address of your session location. At this time we will touch base and make sure that everything is on track to create the perfect session.
Session - Whether you are looking for individual portraits or family portraits, our time together will be relaxed and casual as I ease you into beautiful, natural poses. Sessions typically run between one and two hours and yield a minimum of 20 portraits to choose from.
If your littles are having an off day, no worries! We schedule a little extra flex time around family sessions with small children to allow for unexpected situations.
Full processing of the images takes approximately 2 weeks depending on the season in which your session takes place. At the time of your session we will schedule a viewing session for you to select your favorite portraits. Once your images are selected, they will be edited and shipped to your home or the studio for pick up.
Viewing - Come enjoy a cup of coffee or tea as you view your portraits! Our viewing gallery consists of a digital slideshow so that you see exactly what the final product will look like. You may order additional images in almost any imaginable size or style directly from our website or we will will happily design any one of the items from our custom menu for you.
Once you select your portraits, your order will be placed that day. Orders generally take 7 - 10 business days to arrive.
Digital copies of your print package will be archived and available for viewing and purchase from our website for up to one year after your session.
