At Knowles Portrait Design, it’s all about the experience. From planning your portrait session until your portraits are displayed on your walls, we want every step to be a fun and enjoyable event! With that in mind, we offer a little something extra that’s include with our Artist’s Signature session… an in person ordering session. Those who haven’t worked with us before or have yet to experience custom photography may not know what this is. We thought we would take a few minutes and define it in a little more detail.

What is in person ordering?

An in-person ordering session, sometimes called ‘in person proofing’ or ‘view & order session’ is an extra-special experience and added value just for you. Just a few days following your portrait session, we return to you at your home, condo or beach house for you to view and order your portraits. We will plug directly into your HDTV and present your portraits in actual size! We will bring sample portrait sizes, products and offerings. You can touch and see, in person, the things we offer.

What does this mean for me?

This means we are there to help you every step of the way, to answer any questions you might have. We can go over all of your options to get you exactly what you want in the very best value possible.

I’m only in town for a few days, can I still have an ordering session during my stay?

Absolutely! For our visiting clients we offer the ordering session the day following your portrait session. In certain circumstances it is sometimes possible to have your ordering session later the same day.

Our current and returning clients LOVE this extra touch during their custom experience with us. We love seeing their faces as they view their portraits for the first time!

Have more questions? Feel free to give us a call at 251-219-0602 or send us an email at info@knowlesportrait.com!

There are advantages to living in the South. Like having green grass and gorgeous skies even in the middle of December. 🙂

That’s exactly what we had for Leah’s maternity session!

No, it’s not thanksgiving but we think thankfulness should be a year round thing. Not just when you get together over turkey and football.  Looking back over the past 7 years in business we have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people. Beautiful families from all over the country and even some from other parts of the world. Gorgeous weddings with beaming brides so in love that it brought tears to our eyes. Precious newborn babies so innocent and snuggley. We have even been able to experience the birth of some of those adorable babies. We are so blessed! We are so grateful to be able to connect with our clients on a level where they become our friends and feel like our family. We love being a part of your lives and watching your families grow.

So to all our past, current and future clients we say, “Thank you!”. Thank you for letting us be your family photographers during the most important days in your lives. Thank you for choosing us to preserve those memories your children and grandchildren can look back on for years to come. Each and every one of you has touched our lives and for that, we thank you. We can’t wait to be a part of the next exciting chapter in the book that is your life.

Most summers we spend photographing sweet families in places like Destin, Rosemary Beach, Fort Walton Beach and Panama City in Florida. Or along the Alabama coastline in Orange Beach and Dauphin Island. Every once in a while we get a special request that’s a liiiittle further away. We LOVE to travel so we are always up for a roadtrip!

When the Breeden’s contacted us about traveling down for a session we were thrilled. They were going to be vacationing at the Tradewinds Resort on St. Pete Beach, FL, just outside of Tampa. The summer is our busiest time, with certain weeks of summer filling up the December before so it was great that they contacted us when they did.

The Breeden’s were even sweet enough to send us a rave about their session and portraits. Here is what they said…
“Rebecca is great to work with. She makes your photography session a unique experience and has a way of making everyone feel at ease. I love our family portraits so much and always receive compliments from friends and family. There’s no better choice for beach portraits than Rebecca Knowles!”

Thanks so much, guys! We really enjoyed our time with the three of you!

The Laney’s are such a sweet family! We were thrilled when they asked us to photograph them on their vacation in beautiful Destin Florida.  It seems like there is never a “dull” moment with little boys! They certainly mike things interesting in our house full of boys. The youngest of the Laney Family looks like he has mommy wrapped around his cute little finger. It’s always fun to work with families like ours who are filled with little boys.

Although it was a windy day the waves were simply amazing for the Wallace family photographs in Panama City Beach Florida. Getting to photograph their teenage boys was neat and gave us a glimpse of what we have look forward to with our own sons! The day was perfect and the photographs made wonderful Christmas cards for the Wallace family.

An evening photographing the McCool family in Destin. Their name says it all! A beautiful family and a beautiful sky was the recipe for this perfect session!

When photographing families, we of course do classic posed portraits that will be displayed on your walls for years to come, but we don’t stop there. One of our goals during a session is for everyone to have fun! So once we finish the posed portraits, we move into more fun, playful and candid portraits.

The ones that will make you smile and remember how your daughter loved to twirl or when your son wanted to show you just how high he can jump.

What a joy and pleasure to photograph the Bringle Family again in Panama City Beach, FL. Due to the demand of photographing the emerald coast we scheduled a session at sunrise after being completely booked for sunsets. We think you’ll agree that both sunrises and sunsets are equally breath taking. A little back story. A few years ago we got to be involved in helping Mike surprise Susan with an air plane wedding fly-over proposal
