Walk in Wednesdays

Announcing Walk in Wednesdays! Every Wednesday from 9am-11am the studio will be open for walk in petite portrait sessions, no scheduling required.

What is a petite portrait session?

Petite sessions are perfect for quick milestone sessions. They are about 10-15 minutes, with one outfit/setup. You will have access to our client wardrobe, but not all props/backdrops are available for petite sessions. These are designed for baby only or “Mommy & Me/Daddy & Me” sessions. Immediately after your session, the best 5 portraits will be presented to you on our 55″ TV as unedited proofs. You will make your selections and place your order at this time. All ordered images will be kept on file for a minimum of 30 days, and unordered images will be immediately deleted. While you will view your portraits without edits, standard editing (color, cropping, minor blemish removal and sharpening/smoothing) will be done to all your ordered portraits. Your order will be ready for pickup the following Wednesday.

How much do petite sessions cost?

There is no session fee for petite portraits, and you only purchase what you love- there is no obligation to buy. Prints start at $50 each for 8×10 and smaller ($195 for framed artwork), and single print packages start at $75 for multiple sizes of the same portrait. 11×14 and larger portraits are available as ready to hang artwork. Individual digital images may be purchased for $175 (includes matching print) with instant download, or your set of 5 may be purchased for $600 (includes USB).

Veterans Day mini sessions for military families

Military families with a baby age 1 or younger (including older siblings) can stop by the studio next Saturday, Veterans Day, from 9am-2pm for a free mini session and receive an 8×10 print plus matching digital image of your favorite portrait. We appreciate the sacrifices you and your family make on behalf of our country.

You will preview 5 portraits immediately after your session and can purchase additional portraits at a special discounted rate should you choose, with a portion of the proceeds dedicated to Snowball Express, a registered charitable organization whose mission is to provide hope to the children of fallen military heroes. As the granddaughter of an Air Force pilot killed on duty when my mom was just a baby, I believe in SnowBall Express’s mission and want to give back to both our local military families and those families around the nation who have made the ultimate sacrifice.


Q: Do I need to wear my uniform?
A: Any attire is fine- we would be honored to photograph you in uniform but it is not required!

Q: Is there a limit on the number of people?
A: Immediate family only please- our studio can accommodate families with 3-4 children easily; however, it is a tight fit with larger groups but we will do our best.

Q: My spouse is deployed but I really want a photo of myself and our kids to send to him/her. Can we still come?
A: Absolutely!

Q: Do I need to schedule a time to come in?
A: To make this event as accessible as possible, no appointments are needed. Just come by between 9am and 2pm. If we have a line, we will end the line at 2pm and keep photographing families until everyone has their portraits.

Q: How and when do I choose my portraits?
A: Immediately after you are photographed, your portraits will be shown to you on our bigscreen TV for you to select from. We will lightly retouch the selected portrait(s) and email you the digital image and print and mail your 8×10 (it should arrive in about a week).
