How do I book a session?
Call the studio at 206-947-4686 and have an idea of which type of session you prefer as well as some dates that you are available. A credit card will be needed to hold your portrait reservation.
When is the minimum investment paid?
Your session fee and minimum investment are due at the time of your session as well as any add-on’s to your session such as makeup artist or special location. All of your minimum investment is applied to your order.
When do I get to see my images?
We will set up a view and order appointment 7-10 days after your portrait session. All decision makers should plan to come to this appointment since this is when we will be putting together your order.
I want to share my senior pictures on Facebook, do I get files for that?
Any image that you have ordered we will post on Facebook for you and tag you.
When is the best time for my senior session?
Depends on when you need them by! If you have a certain date that you would like your order back by, plan to start the process at least 6-8 weeks prior to that date.
I really want sunshine, how can we make that happen?
Haha, road trip!! Do you want it to look as though there’s sunshine on you or are you looking for blue skies? If you’re looking for blue skies, schedule in August or September and cross your fingers. If you want it to look sunny then you’re in luck. We are really skilled in lighting and can make it look like it’s sunny outside. Honestly though, having sunshine isn’t the best…it gives you raccoon eyes and makes you squint.
Do you have a real studio?
Yes, our retail studio is located on the corner of Main and Cherry streets in downtown Duvall in the same building as the Match Coffee and Wine Bar and the Quilter’s Garden Store. The address is 15705 Main Street in Duvall, 98019.
What times are available for my session?
We generally start our sessions at 10am and sometimes go as late as 7pm, Tuesday thru Friday.
I need a yearbook image, can you do that?
Yes. We have a list of schools, due dates and where to send the files to. We will take care of it all, you just need to let us know which image you’d like for your yearbook image.
Can we have my session with my horse?
Yes, we love horses! You’ll need to have a session big enough to accommodate the travel time to your horse.
I don’t know what to bring, do you have some suggestions?
Yes! Once you’ve booked your session we will forward our guide on how to prepare for your session! It’s filled with all sorts of terrific ideas.
It’s raining! Do I cancel?
No, unless your session is entirely outside we will still photograph your studio session portion. We will try waiting out the rain, as our weather can change very quickly. If you’re unsure, call the studio.
I have zits, can you retouch them?
Yes, do what you can to cover them up with makeup and we’ll take care of the rest. Every image that leaves our studio is retouched so you look your best.
Can I bring my best friend/significant other with for the session?
Yes, a best friend can stay the entire session and help, a significant other can join in for a couple images but shouldn’t plan on staying too long.
Do I need to know where I want my outdoor portraits taken?
No, that’s our job! We’ve spent the past 10 years figuring out where the best spots for portraits are and the best time of day for the different locations. We’ll take the time to do a little get-to-know-you and see what preferences you have, but for the most part you don’t have to worry about it.
Can we photograph at a specific location?
Yes, but travel time needs to be factored into your session. We have no problem traveling to a certain place, but there may be travel charges that are accrued.
Can I bring my pet?
Yes, friendly animals are welcome. They should be exercised prior to coming in to expend some energy and well pottied before entering the studio. Someone should also be on hand to take the animal after they’ve been photographed.
I love black and white, can you make some of my pictures that way?
Of course! In fact, at your viewing appointment you’ll see our favorites already in black and white.
