Our professional portrait studio really does offer a better portrait experience than our "big chain" competitors.  While we provide similar portrait services & photography products, itís the differences that have our customers returning to our studio for portraits with each new special occasion and milestone.

about our portrait studio

Our portrait studio is conveniently located at 7830 Mineral Point Road on the west side of Madison, WI.  Appointments are highly recommended, though we do take walk-in portraits when possible.  You can reach us at (608) 833-6080 to schedule an appointment any time during our regular business hours, 7 days a week.

our portrait sessions

We have a low sitting fee of $ 29.95 for most Portrait Sessions which includes up to 20 shots in multiple poses, 2 backgrounds, enhancements and time in the studio with our professional photographers.  Also available with each portrait session is a full set of 4x6 proofs, yours to keep with any order.  Extra shots for different subjects or outfits can be added to your session for $ 10.95 per addon, and additional portrait prints can be ordered starting at just $ 10.29 per portrait sheet.

how our studio is different

Our photography is good.  It's so good that we don't need to sit down and pressure you to make an ordering decision immediately after your session, as some studios do.  After your portrait session in our studio, you'll be able to view your portraits both online and in printed form - all from the comfort of your own home.

Order what you want, when you are ready.  Most sessions are available for at least 60 days.  Portrait orders can be placed online for convenience, or in-store for one-on-one help.

It's always a sign of bad customer service when you're made to wait while your photographer wedges another appointment in.   We keep our appointments as close to on time as possible, and always put our clients with appointments before any walk-ins to our portrait studio.

We appreciate your business - why would we want to make you wait?

Being a professional photographer doesn't mean one can't laugh and have fun.  Smiles come easier when there's a little bit of fun in the studio.  Our photographers are not just talent artists - they're fun people who understand that part of creating beautiful portrait photography is making sure the smiles are there to photograph.

No stuffy, boring photographers here.

Many competing studios advertise a low price for an attractive portrait package, but they forget to mention the little details: often you're restricted to just one photo - and another package will cost you much more.  Finding the prices for those additional photo packages and prints can be next to impossible.

We're a small, local studio - and we while can't give our product away, we can price things fairly.  Our portrait print and session fees are straightforward and easy to find.  There are no hidden fees, and no gimmicks.  You can even estimate your total cost, right online.

Best of all, with our portrait studio pricing works, you're able to pick and choose the prints & poses you want - rather than being restricted to what's in a set package.
