The Magical Snowman Portraits...A LIMITED EDITION Opportunity!

As I write this, it is still 96 degrees outside.

We live in South Texas. We don't get snow. At least not very often. I am not going to let this deter me from creating some absolutely gorgeous WINTER portraits!

How, you ask?

You will need to put your imagination into full gear and TRUST ME that your family/kids will look incredible in this beautiful winter scene. It matters NOT what the weather is outside. Who cares that people are looking at you crazy when you are at your favorite store purchasing hats, scarves and mittens while we are still wearing shorts and flip flops?

This session is not for someone who wants 1-8x10 from this experience. This session is for someone who is looking to create a piece of Wall Art that will become part of your yearly Holiday Decor...or maybe even stay displayed proudly year-round.

While all of our product offerings are available, we will be having a SALE on a 10x15 Fine Art Print, completely matted and framed and ready to hang on your wall. Once you purchase this print (or any print of this size or larger) it unlocks the option to get smaller things such as Christmas Cards and Gift Portraits. Since there is so much of my time and artistry involved in creating these Limited Edition Portraits, images must be printed in 5x7 or larger in order for them to be used on a Christmas Card.

This is a One of a Kind Opportunity that you don't want to miss. It's almost like a Hallmark Christmas Movie has come to Artistic Images and your family is the STAR!

Bookings are NOW OPEN and can occur Tuesday-Friday anytime before December 7th in order to have your portraits ready for Christmas. Evenings are an option. Select Saturdays on a limited basis may be available.  Inquire by messaging me HERE.

The 10x15 Fine Art Piece. Matted and Framed.

We can even add a Reindeer instead of the Snowman

How to Have a Relaxing Family Portrait Session

Fall is HERE and so is family portrait season! The weather is finally cooling down, the kiddos are getting settled back in school, and it is time to hang some beautiful new portraits on your wall!

Here are some helpful steps to help making your family portrait session experience a relaxing one.   Scheduling your portrait session with us is the first step to achieving this goal. Fall dates on our calendar go FAST, so make sure to book your session now!

  •      Choose the location for your portraits. Would you like beautiful greenery as your backdrop? Gorgeous architecture? Classy studio portraits? Elizabeth will work with you to choose the best, most beautiful scenery for your portrait session.
  •      Choose where you would like to hang your portraits on your wall. This will help make the ordering process much easier, and help you to have a goal in mind so you can fill up the space with your beautiful work of art.
  •      Pick out your family’s clothes for the session, in advance! Getting everyone in coordinating colors at the last minute adds lots of stress to your day, and will take away from the fun experience. Select the pieces for every member of your family before the session, to make for a peaceful getting ready experience.
  •      On the day of the session, start getting ready in advance. Leave plenty of time to fix stray hairs, touch up makeup, and make sure everyone has the right shoes on. Once everyone is looking absolutely perfect, head to your portrait location early. Arriving to your session 5-10 minutes early will allow you to get everyone out of the car, to meet Elizabeth, and get started right on schedule.
  •      Enjoy this wonderful experience with your family. Soak in this time during your portrait session. The people you love most are all in one place, dressed up, and smiling. These memories will last a lifetime; make sure you do everything in your power to make the best memories and pieces of art that you can.
After nearly 28 years of portrait sessions, Elizabeth knows how to make the best of your day. Take the first step towards an amazing portrait experience by calling and scheduling your session today!

The Wedding of Diandra and Brian...June 15, 2019

Congratulations to Diandra and Brian
June 15, 2019

What a gorgeous wedding this was on a beautiful summer day in San Antonio! I have known Diandra for several years as I first met and photographed her as a high school senior. At the time, she brought her boyfriend in to jump in a few images. Little did we know that her high school sweetheart would become her husband. Their Love Story is as beautiful as they are and I was so blessed to be asked to tell the story of their wedding day.

Here are some highlights.

Venue: The St. Anthony Hotel
Church: St. Mary's Catholic Church
Wedding Coordinator: Greg Reese Events
Hair and Makeup: Jax Studio
Flowers: Trinity Flowers/Danny Cuellar
Cake: The Painted Cake

Here is the slide show featuring even more images:


And here are a few of Diandra's Bridal Portraits that haven't yet been shared.
This session was created at the Japanese Tea Gardens in San Antonio.
