WHAT TO EXPECT

From the initial planning, to your photography session and the final order placement, you will receive individual attention and elite customer service.

Studio or Location: 

Sessions can be held at the 1400 square foot Round Rock studio or at a location in the Austin area.  Newborns and Babies are most often photographed in the studio to take advantage of the variety of accessories and props in a climate controlled environment.  Children, Families and Adults are most oftened photographed on location (typically in the North Austin, Round Rock or Georgetown area.)


What to wear: 

Please plan clothing selections well in advance to avoid last minute stress of what to wear.  Allison is happy to review your choices prior to the shoot and help you with your selections.  Give yourself permission to splurge on that special outfit!  Having it forever caputred in photos will be worth it.  Please contact the studio for hints on some of Allison's favorite places to shop for your wardrobe!

FPP loves layered looks and accessories like scarfs, hats, fun jewelry, etc.  Don't forget to plan your shoes!  Boots, converse, cute heels or ballet flats are perfect.  For small children, a favorite stuffed animal or classic looking toy might make a nice addition to the shoot. 


For sibling shoots or family groups, please coordinate your clothing around 1-2 main colors, but accents of other colors are ok. The goal is to be unified and coordinated, but not be too matchy-matchy.  Each individual should reflect their personal style and be comfortable in what they are wearing.Complimentary clothing consultations are available to review your outfits if you need help!


Preparation: 

For small children, sessions should be scheduled first thing in the morning or right after nap time when they are well rested.  Please try to avoid activities leading up to the session that may deviate from the child's normal schedule or prevent them from being well fed and rested.   Stay calm and don't stress!  Children will often pick up to your mood and if you are stressed out or anxious, they may react accordingly. 

Small scratchs, bruises or bug bites are NOT reasons to reschedule.  Please just make Allison aware of any retouching concerns of "non-permanant" markings. If your child is not feeling well, it's better to reschedule. Reschedules will be based on the photographers availability.

Please bring non-messy snacks, a drink, outfit change and even wet wipes!


After the session:  

Your custom viewing and ordering session will be scheduled at the studio approximately 1 week following your session.  At that time, be prepared to review and narrow down your selections on a life size projection screen.  Together with Allison, you will design the perfect pieces for your home, select smaller prints and review cards/annoucements.  All decision makers on the order should be present at this appointment.  Low resolution digital versions (suitable for social media) are provided complimentary of each image in your final print order.  Payment plans are available, but all orders must be payed in full prior to pick up.  Master Card/Visa/American Express accepted.
