In the Studio
When you arrive at our studios, we ensure optimal lighting, digital cameras, and simple backgrounds. Our professional photographer will give you one-on-one attention to ensure we meet your expectations. We begin by walking through all of your portrait needs with you. If you're not sure what you want in your portrait, our photographer can help you choose a portrait pose, studio prop or suggest featuring special items from home. While in your portrait session, our photographer will guide you through a variety of different poses and looks. The studio experience lasts approximately 45 minutes, longer for newborn sessions and other designated sittings, review your sitting type for specifics.
View, customize and order your portraits
Once your session is complete, you will review your portrait options at our viewing kiosk with a studio team member. We offer a large selection of special effects and portrait style options, including traditional, black and white or sepia. We also offer a quick and easy option to design custom cards and invitations. Many of our guests select one of our digital CD options to print and share their professional portraits.
The studio team member will assist you in finding the best portrait options. Once you have completed your order, it will be sent to our top-of-the-line facilities for high quality processing. Your portraits will arrive in our studio for pickup approximately 7-14 business days after your visit. If you need your portraits sooner you may want to expedite the process for a small fee and have shipped directly to your home.
