WHETHER YOU'RE LOOKING FOR UPDATED FAMILY PORTRAITS, HAVE A NEWBORN, A HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR, OR ITS JUST TIME TO UPDATE YOUR WALLS, WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED.....
Q: Where should we take pictures?
A: We offer both studio sessions & we also LOVE to shoot on-location. We have many "secret" spots we can recommend depending on what time of year you'd like to shoot, and the style & theme you're looking for.
Q: How soon after will be see our images?
A: At the time of your session we will schedule a studio screening/ordering appointment to present your images & work with you to narrow down favorites. Typically a week or so after our shoot.
Q: How should we showcase our images?
A: Glad you asked ;-) As a full-service studio, we specialize in creating custom art products to showcase your images in the form of gorgeous wall portrait displays, custom books & albums, and some really cool products you'll love. Come visit our studio's gallery in Clovis for inspiration...and to see myriad examples of how you can display & share your fine portraiture. Thebeauty & craftsmanship of our custom products truly need to be seen in person to appreciate. We offer gorgeous hand-retouched & printed wall portraits, gallery canvas enlargements. and modern frameless displays in addition to all popular sized prints from wallets to wall portraits.
Q: What should we wear for our shoot?
A: 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
Q: Can we shoot our session at the Coast, Yosemite, Tahoe...will you travel?
A: If there's a spot that's special to you, we're down for it :-) We have shot family portraits & sessions all over the great state of California and beyond. We do charge a modest travel fee for portrait destinations outside of Fresno/Clovis
Q: What is a session fee & what does it include?
A: Our session fee covers the studio's time to plan, shoot, edit, and present your images in our screening room during your ordering appointment. For studio shoots, our session fee is $100, and for on-location local shoots pricing begin at $150.
Q: How far in advance should we book our session?
A: We recommend booking as far in advance as possible. We are a busy studio & popular times of year, such as weekend dates in Fall, will typically fill up months in advance, and while there may be last minute openings, your best bet is to reach out at least two months before you want to shoot, to reserve a spot on our studio calendar.
Q: When should we schedule our maternity session?
A: 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. Every woman & every pregnancy is different, so listening to your body is always a good idea.
Q: When should we schedule our newborn session?
A: Newborns are best photographed in the first ten days, 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.
Q: Do you offer professional headshots?
A: Yes indeed, whether for a company profile shot, modeling headshots, Linkedin professional profile image, or whatever your needs, we offer both in-studio headshots & on-location, with group rates for companies looking to have their entire staff portraits created.
