Begin with the End in Mind

If there's one thing we've learned in the past few years, it's the importance of preserving our cherished memories. Perhaps you're considering a family portrait session, even a generational one. But you're a discerning individual with limited time and resources. You want something that will transcend mediocrity and adorn your walls with the exquisite beauty that only art can provide.

Enter Edward, a photographer who begins with the end in mind. He'll work with you to identify the perfect location for your artwork, be it above the hearth or mantle or within a hallway grouping. From there, he'll create images that fit seamlessly into your vision, whether it's a single piece or a comprehensive family album.

Edward doesn't just provide photographs, but rather an experience, one that he tailors to your unique needs and preferences. He'll consult with you to understand your desires and ensure that the final product meets your standards. The result is not just a piece of art but a priceless memento, a keepsake to be passed down from generation to generation.

In the words of Steve Jobs, "Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." Edward's photographs not only look and feel exceptional, but they work to evoke the deep emotions and memories that make your family unique. So let's work together to create something truly extraordinary, a masterpiece that you and your family will treasure forever.


At Three Maples Photography, our top priority is ensuring our clients are happy and satisfied with our services. Whether you prefer an in-person or virtual consultation, Edward will use this opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of your family and your desired outcomes for your portrait session. Even if you're unsure of what you want to achieve from your portrait session, don't worry - Edward will actively listen to your ideas and provide helpful suggestions based on your conversation.

The consultation serves several essential purposes. It provides an avenue for Edward to answer any questions you may have regarding the portrait session, including wardrobe selection, location, posing and any additional factors. Additionally, the consultation enables Edward to understand your unique family dynamics and tailor the portrait session accordingly. By understanding your unique needs, Edward can create portraits that not only look stunning but also tell the story of your family.

The Reveal and Order Session

Approximately one week after your portrait session, we'll meet with you for a special session where we'll reveal your portraits and help you choose the perfect display options for your home. We'll walk you through different sizes and collections to give you a clear idea of how your portraits will look when displayed on your walls.

This is an important appointment, as it's the time we'll finalize your portrait order. To ensure that everything goes smoothly, we recommend scheduling a time when both parents can be present. We want you to have a stress-free and enjoyable experience during this session, and we'll be there every step of the way to answer any questions you may have. Let's work together to create stunning portraits that you'll love displaying in your home!


About 4-6 weeks after your order has been placed your portraits will be delivered to you in person. We will call you to schedule a time to meet to deliver your portraits at your convenience. Let us know if you want to meet us at our office, or if you would like us to bring them to your home (or even your work if you are wanting to surprise your family with the finished images)


The time has come to revel in the rewards of your efforts. Your portraits now grace the walls of your home, your family album proudly adorns the coffee table, and the accolades pour in for your incredible holiday cards.
It's your moment to shine and take pride in the beauty of the individuals who hold your heart. Every single day, you'll be able to relish the joy of seeing your loved ones captured on the walls of your home, a constant reminder of the love and cherished moments you share.
