MORE THAN A PHOTO SESSION
we will take care of everything
You don’t want to go to the trouble of having photos taken (again) with no plan for what you’ll do with them. You likely have years of digital files that are still sitting. Before your portrait session we will determine where these portraits will live, where they will be taken and design the session to your style. After, we guide you through your art selection to create something truly unique and fitting to your home. We create stand alone framed pieces, gallery walls, heirloom albums and beautiful portrait gifts. Anthology is more than just a portrait studio, we are a complete custom framing boutique. Our South Denver Studio specializes in archival custom framing with hundreds of framing options and no standard sizes. Let’s get started!
“Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present and future.” -Gail Lumet Buckley
We recommend this consultation at your home so we can begin with the end in mind. Are we creating an iconic piece for over the mantel, your family’s epic coffee table book or starting a gallery wall? Plus we will talk all things clothing and styling.
Your portrait session has been designed around your specific desires and goals. Your consult will bring you to the shoot fully prepared and ready to have fun!
Portrait Reveal & Order
Two weeks after your session, you will return for your reveal and order appointment.
What you’ve been dreaming of. Once your artwork and albums are created, we deliver and install at your home. You don’t need to lift a finger.
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
There's only one thing more important than our time and that's what we spend it on.
Kendra entered the custom framing industry through her love of photography. While shopping for a mat at a Denver Frame Shop in 2002, she was offered an unexpected job. While working at that same shop in south Denver, the unexpected happened again. The hot new guy turned out to be pretty interesting (and funny). After several attempts, Kendra and Zach had their first date.
They were married in 2006 and welcomed Gunnison in 2007. After the birth of their son, Kendra took a hiatus from the frame shop but found herself missing it. Her dream had always been to own a business and after marrying Zach, the choice was obvious. In 2008 she began working with the SBA and SCORE to write a business plan for a custom framing and portrait studio. In early 2010 during the worst financial climate they ever experienced, the Custers were approved for a small business loan.
Two decades after entering the framing industry, Kendra still loves combing her passions for photography and framing. The gallery wall of treasured family photos in her home inspires her to create the same heirlooms for her clients.
