Dramatic Lighthouse Metal Print…

Coquille River Lighthouse is a lighthouse located near Bandon, OR, USA. This beautiful, yet dramatic print will not rust or fade. It is printed on aluminum metal with a sawtooth hanger. The metal print will appear to float about 3/4″ form the wall. Some fun facts from Wikipedia about the Coquille River Light House. Get it at a tremendous 65% off during our second lighthouse flash sale!

The light was originally built with a Daboll trumpet for its foghorn, which was used as the light’s fog signal for several years. However, at certain times due to specific weather conditions, the sound of the trumpet would fail at sea, and in 1910 the trumpet was replaced by a more reliable fog siren. While mariners liked the new signal, many Bandon residents did not. The siren would eventually be removed along with the Fresnel lens after the light’s decommissioning.

Over the next 37 years, the condition of the light deteriorated due to neglect and vandalism, until 1976, when its first major restoration began. However, by this time, the keepers quarters and other outbuildings had deteriorated past the point of repair, and were eventually removed. In 1991, a new solar powered light was installed in the tower.

Boutique photography…huh?

We get a lot of questions asking what the heck a boutique style photography experience is. Well, it’s just that…

Merriam Webster defines it best as;

Boutique : a small company that offers highly specialized services or products

When choosing SQPortraits you are choosing a small business that caters to unique clients desiring a unique experience wanting specialized, high quality wall displays and exclusive session locations.

In the industry many photographers are labeled as “shoot and burn” meaning they shoot a ton of photos and burn to a CD for their client. These are often lower priced options, standard point and click shots, and work for many people. Our boutique experience includes an in home consultation covering discussions about where your wall display will hang, designing the shoot around your decor, measuring your space to ensure you get the right sized prints for proper viewing and suggestions on best wardrobe.

We move on to a specialized session day which we’ll write about later and a video slide show and rating ordering session to help you select the perfect final images.

We top off the experience with in home delivery and installation of your final art! This is our favorite day and will be yours too!

There is a modern canvas alternative…

Classic Gallery Wrap Canvases are a unique, beautiful way of showing off your favorite child or family portrait and really provides a high end look and feel. The canvas we provide are even protected to the point that you can gently clean them with a cloth to keep them lustfully sparkling everyday of the year. But, there’s a modern alternative that hit the market that not a lot of people are taking advantage of or may not even know about.

Introducing, Modern Metal! These prints are done on aluminum and coated so they will not fade. Colors pop amazing off of the metal medium yet still provide a high end look of a canvas with a more modern, contemporary look. Like canvas, they appear to float off the wall and like canvas they can be wiped clean. But, what makes these great is that the aluminum will not rust making it a great option for bathrooms or humid environments.

You can see in the picture how thin these are, hang off the wall to give a floating appearance, yet hang as easy as any other picture with saw tooth hangers. We add a touch of rubber bumpers to the back to protect your walls from scraping or scuffing.

When you setup your booking consultation, we bring you a variety of sample mediums to touch and feel. You may even see this one in our bag!

Photo’s on a CD can’t do this…

What’s more, imagine one day passing that beautiful portrait on to the next generation to continue enjoying. How often have heirs been excited to receive a CD?
