Session Process

Sometimes all we need is a little pampering to help us feel better…” – Charles M. Schulz

Portrait sessions can sometimes be stressful. Relax! We are a family too! We understand. That is why we plan – so that you know what coordinated clothing pieces to wear, what accessories to bring, the location selected and it all comes together for a better portrait experience. We highly recommend adding makeup and hair stylists to your session. So pamper yourself to feel and look your very best!

Our home studio offers year round opportunities and a few outdoor settings. Locations in the DFW and surrounding areas are also great avenues, especially if the location has special meaning to you. Don’t forget a portrait at your home will have great meaning, especially in years to come. As discussed in our consultation, we can make suggestions on session locations based on your end result.

The product selection will be approximately 7-10 days (depending on schedules) after the session. At this appointment you will choose images for your products. ALL important decision makers need to attend. There is a $150 fee for an additional selection appointment due to decision makers not attending the original appointment. Please make arrangements for small children so you can focus on selecting your portraits. Most clients have an idea of what they will order based on the consultation so that now they are selecting the images for those products.

As a courtesy to our clients, we GIFT them with a web size digital image of PURCHASED portraits, excluding books/albums, for their social media use. Portrait sessions are archived for 3 months, then ONLY the purchased images will be archived and other images will be deleted. We strive to protect archived images in different locations; however, we do not fully guarantee due to unforeseen circumstances.
