OCTOBER

There are four fall weekends in October- do you want one for your family portraits? Book now, because they go FAST.

Assuming you want outdoor portraits, Portrait Sessions are available on Saturdays at:

9 AM

3 PM

6 PM

NOTE: We also photograph on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays- Saturdays are listed simply because they always go first!

We can photograph at the location of your choice. If you don’t have any specific places in mind, the Crystal Bridges trails in Bentonville and George Washington Carver National Monument in Diamond are always great choices. Depending on time of day, there are lovely places close by the studio where we can also shoot outside.

The All-Inclusive Package Collection is 1300.00 and includes our creative Session time together, all the images as high-resolution digital files with print release, plus 5x7 archival proof prints of every image. Payable in installments.

See our Pricing page for more options.

Questions? Concerns? Email Julie and let us help.

Family First Portrait Event

Family First Portrait Event

“Thanksgiving is a time to give, a time to love, and a time to reflect on the things that matter most in life.” – Danielle Duckery

Join us in the studio for a special fall portrait event celebrating families. Bring your loved ones ** children, parents, grandparents, grandpups ** for a Studio Portrait Session. You can view your images and order shortly- that same day!

For this special event, there is NO SESSION FEE! There are three package options available, starting at 399.00. Email Julie to get a copy of the special package details; they all include digital files and some include our beautiful custom collage wall art. Payment plans available.

Times available: Friday November 8th

Times available: Saturday November 9th

9AM 10:30AM 12PM 1:30PM 3PM 4:30PM 6PM

150.00 deposit required to book

More details:

Your Session lasts about 20-25 minutes. It takes us another 30 minutes to prepare your images for viewing, so you can run for coffee or wait at the studio. Then, we’ll play a slideshow on the big screen of the images we created, and you’ll decide at that point what you would like to purchase. Your prepaid 150.00 deposit goes toward whatever package collection you choose. It usually takes clients around 30 minutes to make their decisions. Plan on spending about an hour and half, total, for the Family First Portrait Event. Note that studio space is limited- we recommend 1-4 adults or up to 6 children for this particular event. Of course, large families are ALWAYS welcome, but we don’t want to put unrealistic expectations on your time. Contact us and we can arrange a different time for larger families.

Questions? Ideas? Call 417-658-8865 or email us. Don’t put family portraits off for another year! You will feel SO HAPPY with yourself once you see the results!

Grandparents Day Special
Sep
6
to Sep 7

Grandparents Day Special

Grandparents are a gift- let’s honor them, show them love, and recognize the strength, information and guidance that older people can offer!

Friday and Saturday Only, September 6 & 7: 9-6 on Friday and 9-2 on Saturday

Bring your grandparents in for a 30 Minute Studio Session; it can be just one grandparent or both, or ALL… and you can even bring the grandkids* to make an amazing memory! We’ll photograph your grandparents by themselves, then add the grandkids, too.

Some things we learned from last year:

  1. Let’s photograph whatever grandkids can make it to the studio. So many families are separated by distance and busy schedules, and as the kids gets older it’s nearly impossible to get everyone together at exactly the same time. TRY TO, because it’s worth it. But if you’re missing the grandkid that works or lives out of state, DON’T make the other grandkids miss out on the opportunity to have this memory with their grandkids. Let’s photograph who we can get there, because we aren’t promised next year.

  2. On that note, if the grandkids are very young and bouncing off the walls- GREAT! Bring them! They may want to run around the camera room the entire time, but you know what? They’re there! Time is precious, take the picture!

  3. Don’t stress about clothes. Yes, if you can get everyone to dress in similar tones it will look very nice. But you know what else looks nice? Happy kids and grandparents, doing their own thing, and smiling! If granddad always wears his poultry farm hat, then let him wear it in pictures. And if cousin Sophia has been at her dad’s house all weekend and shows up in a rainbow sweatshirt when everyone else is wearing neutral button-downs, IT’S OK. We can work with it! We’re just glad she’s here!

Of course, if you have any questions, email Julie or call the studio at 417-658-8865.

$150.00, paid in advance to book.

Includes a 30-Minute Session of creative studio time + one 8x12 Museum Matte Wall Print (single image).

Does not include any digital files or other prints; those are purchased separately if desired. After your Session, you’ll come back to the studio within a few weeks/days to see the images we created (on a slideshow) and you’ll decide at that point which image you would like as your included 8x12 Museum Matte Wall Print. Please make sure all primary decision makers are present, because this is the only way to view and order images. If you want to order more images such as our exclusive Grandparents Montage, please email Julie requesting a price list.

*This event focuses on grandparents, and the bond between them and their grandchildren. This event excludes extended family portraits. Call or email Julie if you have questions about it.

Call the studio at 417-658-8865 to book or email us. Two days only- limited availability at this price. Let’s celebrate the wonderful people who started your family!

September SATURDAY Special
Sep
1
to Sep 30

September SATURDAY Special

Book your Portrait Session on a Saturday in September, and we’ll include a free 16x20 Museum Matte Wall Portrait- already framed!

Beautifully printed on special Museum Matte artisan paper and mounted on archival backing, it’s framed in a 16x20 inch simple wood frame- ready to put on the wall. You can choose one image, OR we can custom design a montage of images!

This FREE gift is included with any All-Inclusive Session, 60-Minute or 30 Minute Portrait Session.

Sessions are available on location or in the studio on three available Saturdays in September: the 14th, the 21st, and 28th.

Times available are:

9 AM

12 PM (studio only)

3 PM

6 PM

Call the studio at 417-658-8865 or email Julie to book!

NOTE: I (Julie) just photographed my own kids (see pictures below or go to my Instagram stories). It was fun coordinating the outfits and ordering clothes and waiting for them to come in. The Session itself was a little frustrating- getting everyone ready is hard! Someone wants a snack, someone needs to potty, someone wants to aggravate a random sibling… I left feeling exhausted! Getting the kids together is WORK! Shout-out to you moms who pull it off- you should feel VERY proud of yourself! Reward yourself with this Wall Portrait to celebrate your accomplishment!

The Calotype School Picture Event

Thu, Aug 8, 201910:00 AM Sat, Aug 10, 20192:00 PM

It’s the 8th Annual Calotype School Picture Event!

Ordinary school pictures- out!

Quality, special school pictures with the Calotype touch- in!

It’s the same package we do every year:

One 8x10” print, 2-5x7” prints, 2-4x6” prints, and 8 wallets (all one pose). From what you tell us, this assortment provides most everything you need for yourself and family. We’ll take a few different pictures, and you get to choose right away which image you want for your package.

It’s just one child at a time- no siblings together. We have the whole studio at our disposal, so have your child wear whatever they want. We’ll find a backdrop to match!

THERE’S NO AGE LIMIT- as long as a child can sit by themselves, they are not too young (or too old!)

Cost is $50 plus tax, paid that day.

Call the studio at 417-658-8865 to book, or fill out this form to request a spot.
