Do I need an appointment?
Most of what we do requires an appointment. An appointment is required for your session and to order your portraits. We take sessions Tuesday-Thursday from 10:00 am until 5:30 pm. We also open on selected Fridays & Saturdays by pre-paid appointment only. You do not need an appointment to pick up your finished portraits.
How early should I book my session?
This answer varies based on the season of the year. We recommend booking at least a week in advance, although during our busy Senior season (August-October) we recommend booking at least 2 weeks in advance.
Do you do outdoor sessions?
Yes! Most of the sessions we offer are for outdoor portraits. Generally, we do not do mid-day outdoor sessions due to the harsh lighting. Early mornings and evenings produce the nicest portraits.
Who will take my pictures?
Kristen Seale and Trisha Simmons who are both Certified Professional Photographers are the full time photographers at our studio. We also have Dale & Janice Holladay who are part time photographers. All four photographers are PPA Certified and are highly skilled to produce high quality professional images for our clients.
What is a Certified Professional Photographer?
When you hire a photographer, you want the best—however, ensuring that you get the best photographer for the job can be a difficult task.
As the leading certifying agency for imaging professionals, Professional Photographers of America's Professional Photographic Certification program is recognized throughout the industry. PPA states, "When you see a photographer displaying the Certified Professional Photographer seal, you can be certain that he or she is among the less than 3% of all imaging professionals who have successfully completed and maintained our requirements."
"Those who have earned the Professional Photographic Certification have passed a comprehensive written exam measuring their technical expertise, and have successfully submitted their work to a panel of judges for review and approval."
Our studio is the only studio in the State of Arizona and one of only a handful worldwide that has all four of their photographers qualified as Certified Professional Photographers.
