        c. Your Personal location (home, ranch, lakehouse)
        d. One of our Amazing Destination Portrait Locations
3. Book your portrait appointment.
     This can be one of the hardest parts of the session.
     We are open Tuesday-Saturday.
     We do work on Saturdays but they book up VERY quickly.
     Here is a list of available Saturdays for portrait session as of today (September 30, 2013)

All New Packages for 2013 Christmas Events {San Antonio Santa Portraits}

You have asked...
and we have listened!

We still have THREE of our AMAZING print packages that we have had for the past few years, but in addition, we have added a PAINTED PORTRAIT package AND a DIGITAL FILE package!

Woohoo!

You can buy a package of FIVE digital files to make all of your own prints and Christmas Cards for only $500 (that is a savings of $200 each image). Or if you buy one of our print packages, you will get the whole digital file package for only $350!! These files are large enough to print any image up to 8x10.

As usual, if you are wanting to have small digital files to share online, they are included in our packages or you can get them FREE with a minimum purchase.

While we would love to create amazing portraits for you to display in your home and on your walls, we realize that there are a HUGE amount of FUN products that can be created from other places and we would love for you to use our images!

2013 Christmas Clothing Color Schemes {San Antonio Santa Portraits}

One of the biggest questions we get is:
What do we wear for our Christmas Portraits?
Well, here you go....
The sets and the colors that we feel would be BEST in the portraits.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Would other colors look good?
Sure, but not ALL colors will go as well with the theme of the portrait.
What about pattern?
We love pattern, but too much pattern will distract from your children's beautiful faces. Just keep it fairly simple with the busier sets and feel free to add pattern to the more simple sets.
Shoes or no shoes?
If it looks like or is an outdoor scene you will need shoes. Remember there are times it looks like SNOW and it would be a bit weird to be barefoot in the snow (can you say FROSTBITE?) However, if it is an indoor scene we LOVE the barefoot look!
Can we change clothes?
These Collector's Series sessions are only 20 minutes in length and we are not able to accommodate a change of clothes. However, if this is something you desire, feel free to purchase our "Extended Session" and you will have the chance to have a wardrobe change.
