Step one: choose your collection

Studio sessions are different from family sessions - they are less about telling a complex story and more about creating a beautiful, classic portrait. Studio sessions can include one outfit change for two different looks. All session times are estimated to give you a general sense of duration, but more time will be given if necessary. Sessions with more than one child will include portraits of each child individually and together.

step two: find a date

 

Studio sessions are scheduled on set days twice a month and are available first-come, first-served via self-scheduling. If the times online don't suit your needs, a custom appointment can be arranged by contacting Megapixie Photography directly. Studio appointments outside the published schedule incur a $50 convenience charge.

  • If you have a particular date or holiday by which you need prints or gifts (Mother's Day, Father's Day, Hanukkah, Christmas, etc.), be sure to book a date at least one month in advance of that date to ensure sufficient processing and printing time.
  • Studio portrait appointments are non-refundable, but may be rescheduled up to 24 hours in advance for illness, etc.

 

step three: plan to make the most of your beautiful new photos

 

Studio portraits are made to be displayed. Although each collection starts with digital files - a good insurance policy, and a fun way to share the photos with friends and family far and wide - I highly recommend choosing a few of your favorite images to be printed and hung in your home. To that end, your digital files will be delivered with a detailed guide to the best printing services, product options, and storage practices. I also hand make fine art prints in my studio that can be matted and framed or boxed for a complete, custom shopping experience.

Handcrafted, acid-free portfolio boxes are a stunning way to have prints of your favorite images on hand for display or for periodic perusal. The exterior of the box is a work of art in itself, wrapped in your choice of natural or charcoal linen. The images within are matted and ready to be displayed on the included photo easel.
