Lloyd’s Studio Photography specializes in Family Portraits. We have been taking family portraits for over 20 years. I am a second generation professional photographer and my studio Lloyd’s Studio Photography is located in the heart of downtown Boca Raton at The Boca Grand Building. My family portraits are displayed in many homes across the country and abroad. I combine classic fine art portraiture with modern lifestyle photography to create timeless images. Influenced and trained by the best artists in the world, I am skilled to create beautiful and honest photographs of your life’s happiest memories. I like to capture your family as you are.
“Professional, prompt, organized, efficient, creative and friendly is what you get from Lloyd’s Photography of Boca Raton, Florida. We used Lloyd’s Photography for a family shoot when we were visiting from out of town. The brother-sister team made my family feel comfortable and very special from the moment we met, while paying close attention to all the details. Elizabeth and Michael couldn’t have been nicer to work with! Michael captured the essence of our family. We wanted to get our grandchildren in the pictures, along with pictures of them with their parents. There were 10 of us and we were all impressed at how quickly they learned our names. Elizabeth and Michael knew how to wrangle all 3 young children to get all the group shots we needed in a quick timespan. They were able to get fabulous pictures of everyone capturing our family dynamic. In addition, Elizabeth was sweet and extremely accommodating to my elderly father-in-law, making sure he was comfortable at all times. Michael took absolutely phenomenal photographs that we will absolutely cherish for many years to come. Their work is really exceptional, and the results were more than we had hoped for. Our family highly recommends Lloyd’s Studio Photography”
FAMILY PORTRAITS A FAMILY LEGACY
Growing up in a family whose business is photography, we were used to taking pictures all the time and of everything. Yet a family portrait of the six of us can be counted down to about three. My favorite was taken in Rome when we were on vacation and we were very young. It is our biggest treasure. For this reason, we know the importance of family portraits.
FROM A BEAUTIFUL IMAGE TO WALL ART
Time goes by very fast, kids grow up and change. Imagine you have the amazing images of all of you together, looking your best and feeling great together as a large portrait on your wall. This moment cannot be repeated again, but it can be relived every time you glance at the stunning wall art in your home. This is when our images become more than just beautiful family photos. They become art that delivers joy, pride, and emotional fulfillment. Those are the feelings you want to be surrounded by everyday. And everyone who enters your home will see and feel what your family is all about. This is how our portraits become the heart of your family and a big part of your family legacy.
FAMILY PORTRAITS ON LOCATION
South Florida is the ideal place to have a family location portrait done any time of the year. One of the most sought after locations is the beach. Lloyd’s Studio Photography is located about 10 minutes from the beach. Deerfield Beach has a beautiful pier and huge rocks along the beach. The ideal time for family portraits on location, like the beach, is just before the sun sets, in the summer it can be as late as 7:00 pm and in the winter as early as 5:00 pm. So it’s always important to be aware of the best time to be able to capture the “Golden Light, which creates a beautiful effect on the portraits.
Your family is always changing, always growing. Lloyds’s Studio Photography is proud to present its exclusive
Connections Family Portraits! This is a modern way of displaying your family in casual and interactive poses showing the connections of love. This is a new way to see your family. Our exclusive creation of individual canvas wrap portraits come together to form a floating Family Collage. This is an ideal way to display small families and big families, too. As your family grows, so does your collage. These Family Portraits are done in the studio or on location, like the beach, a park or your home.
A beautiful portrait is an investment that requires pre-planning. An on location consultation prior to the photography shoot is included in our location fee. The client chooses the location, which can be the beach, a park or their home. This session is ideally suited for creating a décor-style wall art portrait.
FAMILY PORTRAITS – FYI
How does a family portrait session work?
The family portrait session is custom tailored and designed for each client. This is your time to capture and record the important things in your life. Please call the studio (561) 394-8399 to discuss the best time for you and our availability. Please remember to call two to three weeks in advance.
A complimentary in-studio design consultation is available prior to your session to assist you in planning outfits and to discuss anything we can do to help make your session special and unique. After your portrait session, a complimentary proofing and ordering session will be arranged specifically for you. Our clients love this special presentation! During this session, we will discuss options and help you determine the best portraits and products to suit your needs.
What is a family portrait consultation?
A family portrait portrait design consultation is the first step in creating timeless images. We will discuss your vision at this time and plan the location and look of your portrait. This is the time we get to know each other and find out what you have in mind for your session. Tell us about yourself, your family and your home. We want to know what you like in terms of style, colors, etc. Together we will plan your session so that everything runs as smooth as possible the day of the session. We will show you the choices available in wall art and gift portraits. Clothes are a critical element, so its best to create a cohesive look… not necessarily all in white and khakis, just a choice that will be harmonious. We allot one hour per client, but we know that the little ones may need more time and that is okay because we do not book sessions one after the other. When photographing the family we start with the whole group and then do other groupings.
When do I see the family portrait images?
The final images will be ready 7 to 10 days after your session. There are three ways of ordering. You may order the same day, we can set up a viewing/ordering appointment or create an online ordering password protected gallery. For an in-person ordering appointment, we will display the final images, as well as any type of collage. We will help you with all of your final decisions on images and products we have created just for you. All involved in the decision making need to be present. For online ordering, the gallery will remain active for 15 days to place your order. Share your images with family and friends who can also place their own orders.
What textures/ types do family portraits come in?
Canvas Oil Portraits: The finest quality. The portrait is peeled and superbly mounted on canvas and finished with an oil based texture highlighted by subtle brushstrokes to create the feeling of oil on canvas. This is a true showpiece for any home.
Canvas Wraps: This is the new version of the canvas – the giclee print. Here the image is printed onto canvas and stretched onto 2 inch framing board to create an image that wraps around the board. This does not need a frame.
Classic Portraits: Portraits of lasting beauty in matte finish. Portraits 11×14 and larger are mounted on heavy board.
What sizes do family portraits come in?
Portraits come in the standard sizes up to 40×60. We are able to create any specified size you desire up to 40×60.
When do I have to pay for the family portraits?
As the nature of this work is custom, we require full payment before the order is started.
Can I bring my children to the family portraits ordering appointment?
This is the time for you to relax and enjoy the images we have created for you. You might want to arrange for childcare for children under 12, or we can schedule your appointment when the children are in school.
When will my family portrait order be ready?
All of our images are retouched by Michael and sent to be printed in a state of art professional lab. Regular orders take 2 to 3 weeks and specialty products take about 4 to 6 weeks. (That includes Canvas Portraits and framing.)
Do you have family portraits specials?
Yes we do. Throughout the year we have specials for the many occasions that we celebrate. Please check the Specials page on our website. We also have Special Offerings, these are packages that include the session and selected collections that have special discounts. Choose from one of our many offerings and save 15%.
