Common Signature Portrait Questions

We Want to Answer All Your Questions

When is the best time to schedule our family portrait session?

Right Now! Because of how Uniquely Different our Signature Family Portraits are and the amount of artwork required to create each one, we’re limited to only 20 new clients each year. That means if you want a family portrait that’s truly different, then right now is the best time to book your Signature Family Portrait Session. BOOK SESSION NOW→

How long does it take to get a Signature Family Portrait?

That depends. On average, you can expect it to take between 4 to 6 weeks from start to finish, but we’ve completed portraits in as little as 3 weeks. The length of time it takes us to create such an amazing family portrait largely depends on 1) our portrait schedule and 2) your schedule. We do, however, have priority scheduling options that will guarantee you receive your portrait on the date you want it.

What's your process for creating our family portrait?

For our Signature Family Portraits, we have a 4 Step Photillustrator Process that will lead you from designing the family portrait of your dreams during our Discovery Session to experiencing your crazy family portrait for the first time with friends and family during your BIG Reveal. Every portrait begins with a Discovery Session where we help you design and build the portrait of your dreams. From there we create a Concept Sketch of your portrait, which you’ll make changes and approve during the Approval Session. Once we have your portrait approval, we move into the Creative Session where we do all the photography and artwork for your family portrait before sending in for custom printing and framing. Saving the best for last, you will experience your unique family portrait with those you care about most during your BIG Reveal.

How much do your Signature Family Portraits cost?

Starting at $4,850 your overall investment depends on how many characters will be featured in your family portrait, the size that best fits your needs, and whether you’d like to add our Hidden Touches feature or framing. While it’s not uncommon for families to invest $10,000+, on average you can expect the investment of your Uniquely Different Family Portrait to be between $4,850 and $7,200.

Do you travel outside the DFW area to create family portraits?

Yes, definitely! We are frequently commissioned to travel throughout the U.S. to create Uniquely Different Portraits for our clients. If you live in Dallas and want us to travel or you live in another city, the first step is to call us at (214) 945-3226 to secure the dates you’d like for your portrait session.

Do you charge more for really big families?

Yes! For both our Classic Portrait and Signature Portrait you can include unlimited family members, while our Staged Portraits only allows you to have up to 7 characters. So, if you have a large family and want to include grandpa, grandma, and their pet rooster, you can expect your family portrait investment to be slightly higher.

Can you create a portrait using my personal photos?

Unfortunately, NO! Because of things like camera angles, perspectives, lighting, and image quality, it’s impossible to create an Amazing Family Portrait like these using photos we didn’t take. Every photograph we capture for your family portrait is captured taking angles, perspecitves, lighting, and quality into consideration. That said, from time to time, when we’re unable to capture an image for your portrait, we may be able to use a photo you have or come up with creative alternatives.

Can we include our pets?

YES, of course. Your dog, cat, lizard, or parrot is as much a part of your family as your own kids, so we 100% want you to include them in your family’s portrait. Remember, this portrait will be a glimpse into what it’s like to be a part of your crazy family and if your pet’s anything like mine, they’re a huge part of the experience.
