Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Seniors

As we are full time photographers you can book your session as soon as we have an opening, however if you are planning to do an on location session we would recommend you give yourself at least 2 weeks for planning and having a pre-shoot consultation. This gives us enough time to discuss different locations and wardrobe recommendations.

Absolutely not, we have 2 acres of ground with a pond, various out buildings and outdoor sets. However because we have a 1200 soft purpose built studio, studio shoots can not be canceled due to the weather.

The session fee formally books your portrait appointment. This covers the pre-session consultation in person or by phone, your portrait session, post-session processing and preparation of your images and a private viewing/ordering appointment at our studio. Session fees do not include any prints or products. Clients may purchase products via “Create A Collection” or A La Carte.

We are adventurers and will gladly travel almost anywhere.  This requires our expenses of travel to be paid in addition to the location session fee. 

A regular location session can be anywhere within a 60 mile radius of Marshall, Texas.

We always recommend a pre-shoot consultation to discuss outfits. Also once your session is booked we will send you our “What to Wear” guide.

We really want your shoot to represent YOU!  We encourage you to bring anything you feel best describes you or something you spend a lot of time with.  When you look back on this time in your life, you will fondly remember these items.  These can include sporting, recreational, reading, computing, pets, artwork, collectables, your vehicle, or just fun things like balloons, bubbles, flags, signs, hats or bowties.

YES!  We love doing artistic work and also love creating collages.  We have a $100 fee for the time it takes to create these.

If you book a studio session we will spend up to 1 hour with you.

If you book a location session we will spend up to 3 hours with you.  Sometimes when we are having loads of fun, we go over the time limit, at no extra charge.

Within 10 days of your shoot you will receive a link to book a viewing appointment.  You and your parents will come to the studio and view the images we have taken.  At this point you will decide which images you would like to purchase for your wall, your album, your gift prints because Grandma has to have one and also your digi-pack.

After many years of experience, we have sought out the best vendors for each product.  Once you have paid for your purchase, we send the order to each lab to start creating your products.  Some take a little extra love in creating them so will take up to 3 weeks for delivery.  Once your total order is ready, we will package it and then notify you to pickup.

Yes, we custom design and print graduation cards. We do charge a $30 design fee (no charge for our models) but our cards are a lot cheaper and personalized compared to Balfour. Are cards also come with envelops.

As an added service to our models we also design and deliver any ads that you may take out in the Football program etc. This takes the press off the parents and the schools love receiving our ready to print artwork in the format they require.

It is always a good idea to have a light meal before the shoot.  Little ones can be unco-operative when they are “Hangry”.  Avoid sodas with colorants that stain the mouth and avoid eating or drinking anything while wearing your shoot-outfits.  (Rest assured, we can do small edits as a result of “oopsies” for a small fee of $45)

The best idea is to have a pre-shoot consult with us to discuss outfits.  We always recommend solid colors, matching shades, and loose fitting items.  Clean and ironed items brought on hangers can be put on when arriving at the studio.

Corporate Headshots

Tony Juays holds a Certified Professional designation and is skilled in lighting and capturing the best possible headshot.  When it comes to your professional image, it must be the best!

We know time is money and that you are a busy person.  We will give you as much or as little time as it takes you to get the shot you like.  Although we give you up to an hour with 4 outfit changes we can have you in and out of our studio in under 15 mins if needed. The average headshot session is about 30 mins which includes choosing you favorite image. 

Wear what best represents your position.  If you are a professional, a well fitting jacket and tie is best. If you are a seasonal Santa then wear your Santa suit.  If you are a doctor, wear your coat and bring your stethoscope.  Really, the image should project what you are selling.  Solid colors work best next to the face. Sleeves should be longer,  hair should be cut or styled and make up should be light and natural. Shimmering type makeup is not advisable.

Yes.  The final image/s that you choose will be retouched to remove fly-away hairs, spots or light skin blemishes and slight teeth whitening will be done where needed.

Headshot images are delivered to your email as High resolution digital files.  Once payment is received, we deliver your digital image within 48 hours.  If there is a large amount of editing requested by yourself, we may need up to 72 Hours.
