What To Expect

Where do you take photos?
With our studio located in the Village of East Davenport, we have great photo spots right outside our door, literally. Our back entrance opens up to Lindsay Park and the iconic vintage firehouse. Additionally, we have select locations throughout the Quad Cities we visit for every season

What do we wear?
When you book a portrait session with Giraffe Photography, we’ll send you a ‘Clothing Guide’. This will assist you with what colors to wear and coordination, etc. Plus, you can always contact us to go over additional questions.

Do you shoot in color?
Yes. After the portrait session, we’ll color correct your images and add a mixture of black and white tones.

Do you take posed photos of us, looking at the camera?
With all of our work, we blend in a mixture of informal candid portraits and setup poses. On the flip side, we’re not overly traditional photographers. We don’t copy looks off the internet or apply ‘light flare’ filters to every image. Great photography speaks for itself and stands the test of time. That’s why our motto is, “A Head Above the Rest.”

Do you offer payment plans?
Yes. Please inquire. 🙂

Could we get some additional information / setup a portrait session?
Sure. Head on over to our contact page and drop us a line. Or, feel free to give us a call at 563-323-3870.


We’re friendly and available to help. Reach out to us anytime and we’ll book your shoot or happily answer your questions.
