Claudia Page Carter, owner and photographer of The Portrait Gallery, loves her job. It’s that plain and simple! She has been satisfying her clientele for the last 15 years with beautiful portraits of their babies, children, high school seniors, and family. The studio offers a variety of different packages and unique programs that cover everything from maternity sessions to a three-year program that includes a custom made album!
The Portrait Gallery’s main goal is give their customers an overall great and memorable experience for their portrait session. This includes a personal consultation where the client’s options and desires are discussed, such as location and clothing. During the session, Claudia has a gift to bring out the best expressions and most natural looks for her clients. When the customers come in to view their images, they are presented a variety of package options for framing, albums and unique gifts.
Claudia recalls what one customer recently said to her: “When I look at my portraits on my wall, not only do I think of that moment in time when you took the pictures, but I also think of you as well.” This compliment took Claudia by surprise and she considers it to be quite an honor!
“I love my job and feel blessed to be able to have a career where I truly enjoy what I do,” says Claudia. ” I love my customers as if they are family. It is such a good feeling to be out somewhere and have a child run up (or even the parents!) and give me a big hug! That makes my job that much more rewarding!”
The Portrait Gallery was honored this year with two awards for its wonderful photography. The first being voted the “Best Family Photographer” for Triad Moms On Main’s 2011 Choice Awards, and also voted as the “Best Photographer” for Winston-Salem Journal’s Reader’s Choice Awards.
Throughout the year, The Portrait Gallery offers several promotions that include “Here Comes The Easter Bunny”, “Happy Halloween”, “Autumn Creations”, “A Visit With Santa and Mrs. Claus”, and “Happy Holidays”. All of these are updated on the studio’s website and can also be found on their Facebook page.
