What is different about Rebecca Houlihan Photography?

We are not an ordinary portrait studio. Our goal is to build a relationship with our clients so we can create the best possible experience for you and ensure your portraits are just as you dreamed they would be.

How do we ensure excellent portraits for you?

Prior to taking your portaits, we will invite you to our studio so we can get to know you. We will discuss everything that goes into creating the perfect portraits for you. We will discuss posing, expressions, clothing, locations, and much more. We will help you by giving our expert advice, but we are very open to your ideas as well. We love it when families are involved in the planning part of their portraits and welcome all of your ideas! We will also educate you on the best options for displaying your portraits and keeping them beautiful for your enjoyment for years to come.

What kinds of products are best for heirlooms like family portraits?

Family, newborn, and maternity portraits are not something that you do every day, or every year, for that matter. In fact, most people are lucky to have had a family photo taken once every 5 or 10 years. It is truly a special occasion! We understand the value of these portraits and this time in your lives and have the perfect ways for you to display your art. We can help you create your own custom collection to match exactly what you want and give you the very best savings. We love to include a complimentary frame, or a canvas wrap upgrade for your wall art. When you choose us, we know you want something very special and a step above so we offer many specialty options for you as well, such as panels, collages, cards, and albums. All of our portraits are retouched to perfection, and everything larger than a wallet is mounted on hard board and finished with a protective coating.
