FAQ

Do you take outdoor portraits?

Yes, we would love to plan an outdoor shoot with you.

Is the Luce session suitable for High School Seniors?

Seniors will love our sessions for the senior photos as they are so much fun and offer numerous changes of clothing. You will receive images that are edgy and fun which show off your style! Our most popular 90 minute Outdoor Senior Session includes professional make up and is only $250, plus tax.

How do I plan our portrait session?

Designing your family portrait session can be an exciting experience. And when the finished portrait is on display in your home, you will find that the carefully planned session will be reflected in a tasteful work of art that is individualized in both style and design. Your decorative portraits will become a personal expressive statement of family, children, and pets.

Do you have any props available?

Yes, we do have props available for you to use, however we encourage you to bring your own props, toys and keepsakes as they reflect your lifestyle, personality and individuality!

Can I bring a change of clothes?

Yes. We encourage you to bring a change of clothes. Ideally for a 50 minute family session up to 2 outfits are ideal so that you can have something dressier and a casual outfit. For our 30 minute specials, one outfit would be best. Just guage it by the age group in your shoot.If you are planning a family session, you may want to dress in clothing where there is one color that ties your outfits together (even if it's just a scarf). It is not necessary to match your outfits too much. Subtlety is key.

Ladies and girls, dresses that move are great for your more formal portraits.

For the casual portraits medium to dark wash jeans look great, and are much more preferable to khakhi.

Guys, don't forget to pay attention to the color of your socks.

Overall, bring along outfits that show off your personality and add some color, then come and have fun!

How do I determine the best size portrait for a particular location?

It is best to choose a place in your home which is visible and that you feel is best suited for your new portraits. Remember your portrait will become the room's focal point and all elements of design, color, style, composition and size must work together to complete the decorative statement. Once you have found the perfect spot for a portrait please measure the space and bring the measurements to your shoot so that we can keep this in mind when we are shooting.

How many people can I bring to a shoot?

The Luce session has a limitation of 6 people per family session, however we would love to have a large group at the session but there will be an aditional charge as we will need more time to accommodate everyone. Please call us for details at 817.424.5823, or email us at Trusa@luce-photography.com

Can I bring my pet to the shoot?

Of course! We love to photograph friendly pets - simply check with the studio ahead of time to ensure we can accommodate your pet when you book your session.

Do you photograph weddings?

At the current time we are not photographing weddings.

How do we choose our prints?

You will be invited to view your images a week after your photo session with us. This is when you will decide upon your favorites and order your Luce products, so it's helpful to come with ideas as to where you would like to display your images. (Please see the Info tab under Preparation for questions to ask yourself). Book your baby-sitter and please allow one uninterrupted hour for the viewing. Once you place your order it will take 4-6 weeks to have the product ready for collection, and display in your home.

How do you finish our portraits?

Each portrait is carefully finished to LUCE Photography's high standards. Each studio print is color enhanced, retouched and carefully mounted. We can also custom frame of your choice with non-glare glass to preserve the quality of your image. Gallery Wrapped Portraits receive the same treatment and are placed and stretched across canvas to cover the entire frame. All of LUCE Photography images are printed by one of the best professional custom color labs in the country.
