portraits

We offer studio sessions & we also LOVE to shoot on-location. Session pricing begin at $150 and include an in-studio screening appointment one week after your shoot to view & order favorites.

We have packages for families, maternity, newborn, & senior sessions. The studio produces gorgeous wall portraits, custom books, cards & gallery canvas enlargements in addition to all popular sized prints from wallets to wall collages. Contact us at (559) 903-6041 for more details on our fine portraiture.

 

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR A SHOOT?

While this really depends on your individual style, there are a few general principles:

- avoid busy patterns, logos, or text...these can distract from the face

- it's typically better for people to complement, not match eachother color-wise

- don't be afraid of vivid colors

- most importantly BE YOURSELF & wear what you are comfortable in

 

WE WANT TO SHOOT A FAMILY PORTRAIT ON THE COAST...DO YOU DO THAT?

Absolutely, we love shooting around the Central CA coastal area....we simply add a nominal travel fee for portrait sessions outside of the greater Central Valley area.

 

WHEN SHOULD WE SCHEDULE A MATERNITY SESSION?

It is generally recommended to plan your maternity photography session in the late 2nd or early 3rd trimester. You want to be clearly showing but still comfortable enough to enjoy the process. Earlier than that and your belly may not be prominent enough...later than that and you may feel uncomfortable...every woman & every pregnancy is different, so listening to your body is always a good idea.

 

WHEN SHOULD WE SCHEDULE OUR NEWBORN SESSION?

Newborns are best photographed in the first two weeks, which is ideal both for us to produce custom birth announcements & because your baby will sleep the most during this time, which allows us the most flexibility in posing.
