Q.  How may photos will I get?

A.  Approximately a dozen edited high resolution images. 

Q.  How long will it take to get my photos back?

A.  Your high resolution files will be available for download within two weeks of your session date. 

Q.  Where will the sessions be held? 

A.  Where your session will be held is dependent on your registration date and time slot, but will be at either Lakeside Park in Dallas, the Dallas Arboretum or in Studio at The Lumen Room, also in Dallas:

Lakeside Park (meeting at the cross streets of Lakeside Dr. and Miramar): 9/20, 9/26, 9/29, 9/30, 10/3, 10/7, 10/10, 10/12, 10/13, 10/14, 10/17, 10/24, 10/27, 11/1, 11/3, 11/4* only 4pm-6pm that day (earlier sessions are at the Lumen Room), 11/10, 11/14, 11/17, 11/18, 11/21, and 11/30.

Q. There are no available time slots left that work for me, HELP!

A.  Sign up for the waitlist at the bottom of this page and you'll get an email should additional dates/times get released!   

Q.  What should my family wear? 

A.   I'd say stick to lighter colors but avoid solid yellows/reds/oranges.  They don't work well with lots of skin tones.  If you're having your family photographed, do not put everyone in all white or matching (it just looks a little dated).  I'm a big fan of small prints. Hope that helps!

Q.  I want to book a different kind of session (family, newborn, event, commercial...etc), how do I do same?

A.  Please email to book like usual. The signup is ONLY FOR HOLIDAY MINIS. 

Q.  Something came up and I cannot make my scheduled time, HELP!

A.  Please email me at or call me at 214.499.6410 as soon as possible.
