Welcome to Genuine Image Photography
Genuine Image Photography specializes in intentional designer portraiture. What this means is the portrait (photo) has a job and function where it is intended for home decor or marketing.
We have a unique process in creating our designs. We start with education on so you know what is possible and available to you. We feel if people have good information they can make the right decisions to take them to their ideal out come or goal. In our design process we ask specific questions to reveal the true desired need and want. It is at this point we start to sketch the outline and create the concept of what we are soon to photograph. By having an end goal in mind we set everything in place for success.
Our studio is in a historic 100 year old cool little Red House which is just a relaxing 20 minute picturesque drive from Bellevue. It is 1 block from the Snoqualmie River with sunset views of Mt Si. This quaint location and warm atmosphere will set you right at home were you can unplug, relax and enjoy your Design Interview over a warm cup of coffee on the cool days or refreshing tea or strawberry lemonade on the warm days.
On your Session Day, if your design is in studio, it is the perfect place to be yourself and to gain mental focus to reach your design goals. We have a beautiful changing room/restroom with artwork and a large claw foot tub. Cozy up in the open kitchen space to relax and be pampered from one of our two hair stylists and makeup artists if you'd like. On your Session Day take a break between looks and view the photographs on our comfy leather couch in our venetian plaster and crown moulding warmly lit studio.
Our Family Portrait Viewing and Ordering Appointment is wonderful! With music playing in the background and the citrus scent of essential oils, relax with your loved ones to your slideshow of images on our 10 foot projector screen. Toast your loved ones to the beauty of the life you have together as you see your precious moments unfold in front of your eyes. Our slideshow viewing is a must for seeing what your final portrait will look like when it will be display in your home as a focal point while working with your style and decor.
