2017 Amateur Photography Class

We have taken this photography class to an all new level!
This 4 hour class will help you understand your camera and help your photographs look just the way you imagined. We will go over everything you ever wanted to know and then we will put your camera to work using all of your new found knowledge.

This class is NOT for anyone who already understands photography and wants to turn it into a business. For that, you should take my class at the Texas School of Professional Photography.
This IS for moms,dads, teens and adults who want better photos of their kids, vacations, pets or whatever you like to take photos of!

Register Today as there are only 20 spots available!

If you have already taken PART ONE of this class when I have offered it in the past, this may repeat some parts but will also add on to that, so feel free to register again!

The fee is $79 and is payable upon making your reservation.

HURRY....there are only 20 spots in each class!
I wish I was able to accommodate more, 
but there just isn't enough space!

The Santa Experience 2016 {San Antonio Santa Portraits}

Artistic Images Presents....
The Santa Experience 2016
We are having two events with Santa this year. Here is an example of our set designs for both sets:

Snow Day with Santa
November 5th

Santa's Winter Lodge
November 12 & 13

What is The Santa Experience?
These sessions are 15-20 minute personal sessions with the REAL Santa Claus. No fake beards or bellies here! This is the real deal. Our sets have been custom designed for our studio and are beautiful and 3-dimensional. All props are included unless you would like to bring personal items to add a special touch to your portraits. 

What is the Cost?
We have a $50 session fee and a minimum order of $150.
Our Awesome Create Your Own Collection concept allows you to get only the things that YOU really want!

What type of products are available?
Our studio believes in creating beautiful products that you will be able to view and enjoy for decades to come. Some of our most popular items, besides the typical desk sized prints, are Wall Portraits, Albums, Greeting Cards and other unique items such as Storyboards and Metal prints. We pride ourselves in having the best quality imagery and product offerings available. When you see them in person, you will see the difference.

How do I make an appointment?
We are kind of old fashioned. We LOVE to talk to our clients and personally be able to answer all of their questions over the phone. In order to secure your appointment, call the studio Tuesday-Friday 9:30-5 (6 on Tuesday) at 210-497-3809 and be prepared to prepay your session fee and minimum order with a credit or debit card. Or, if you are like many others and you doing this while the kids are in bed at midnight, EMAIL us here and we will call the next business day!

Why should you have a family portrait made? {San Antonio Family Photographer}

Why should you have a family portrait created?
The answer is simple.
We need portraits to capture a moment in time.
A moment that will NEVER come again.
Your kids will never be that age.
You will never be this young.
You can never get this moment back, but you CAN freeze time with a portrait that captures your family.

I have family portraits all over my house, and while some may think that is "vain" or "conceited", I believe that having these portraits is the best ARTWORK in the world. Instead of having a piece of art I bought at an art gallery, I have God's best work on my children.

In fact, there is a blog post you can read HERE that talks about how Family Portraits can Boost your child's Self Esteem.

There are many types of Family Portraits that can be created at many different locations. From close up to panoramic and everything in between, take a look below to see what style of portraiture fits your family.

 IN-STUDIO Portraits:

So, as you can see, portraits can be made anywhere and can truly be a piece of Art that you would proudly display in your home. Hopefully, this will help you put a Family Portrait on your list of things to do this year!

Santa's Winter Lodge
It is cozy and warm in Santa's winter lodge.

A Formal Affair
This a wonderful chance to dress up in those fancy Christmas Party outfits and capture a family portrait to cherish for years to come. And just think how impressed your friends will be when they receive a beautiful Christmas Card with you all dressed to take on the world! We have been collecting some cool new chairs and couches and so we will have a variety of colors and styles to fit your style.

 We are currently hard at work creating Christmas cards that will be BRAND NEW to match our settings for this year, as well as some beautiful products for you to enjoy at home.

2016 Fall Family Events {San Antonio Family Portrait Specialist}

October is the beginning of our busiest season.

Between October and December, I will photograph over 50 family portrait sessions! Since there are only 12 weekends during those two months, it is impossible for me to photograph every family on a weekend, right??

Every year we run a Fall Family Day Special Event at a chosen location. The session last 45-60 minutes and is always a favorite option for those wanting to update that family portrait over their fireplace or create fabulous Christmas Cards...or both!

These sessions are on a Saturday in October and ALWAYS SELL OUT! So book ASAP if you think this is perfect for your family. Oh, and by the way, Saturday sessions are usually a $450 session fee. This event is specially priced at $100 session fee and a $200 minimum portrait order.
I's almost unbelievable!

So now you know why these ALWAYS SELL OUT!

So here they are....the DATES and LOCATIONS for this year's FALL FAMILY PORTRAITS:

These dates or locations don't work for you? Then call us asap to snag a family portrait at your location of choice....but hurry...dates are going fast!
