Portfolio | Session Info


All portrait sessions are artistically designed and guided by Rhonda Smiga. Wardrobe will be carefully selected to achieve the look you desire, and your photo shoot will be skillfully directed to capture your personality and all your best features. We bring the boutique experience right to my studio in Adriatica Village (McKinney) where you can unwind and enjoy being pampered during your photo shoot.  Sessions may continue on-location or outdoors.


Step 1: Studio Tour & Consultation
I invite you to schedule a complimentary tour and consultation with me at my studio at Adriatica Village in McKinney. You are welcome to see and touch the beautiful products available, discuss what packages are available, and chat about ideas for your photo shoot. There is never any obligation to book a session with me, but if you feel confident that I’m the photographer for you, I’ll be happy to help you select a date for your big day!

Step 2: Scheduling Your Portrait Session
Session times start at 9:30 am or 10:30 am depending on the number of people being photographed with you. I’m currently booking weekday sessions out 2-3 weeks. Saturday sessions fill the fastest, so if you’re interested in a weekend, please contact me for availability. The session fee will be due at the time of booking.

Step 3: Scheduling Your Wardrobe/Style Consultation
We will discuss your wardrobe at the initial consultation so you can plan your outfits ahead of time, but I encourage everyone to schedule their complimentary wardrobe/style consultation prior to their portrait session date. You are welcome to bring anything you wish to wear for your photo shoot. I will be available to help select the most flattering pieces and help accessorize the outfits that will help complete your style. I recommend scheduling your wardrobe/style consultation two weeks prior to your session date.

Step 4: Your Session Day!
You will receive a list of how to prepare and what to bring prior to your session date. I will also confirm your arrival time. Upon your arrival, you will be shown to your dressing area and offered a beverage. Once you are settled, we will ease in to your (or your child's) photo shoot. I will be directing every step of the way. We’ll share a lot of laughs and you can enjoy the experience!

Step 5: Reveal Session
You will be invited back to my studio approximately 1-2 weeks after the photo shoot to view your images and make your selections. Products are sold separately with images starting at $275 and packages starting at $1200. With every print purchased, I will provide the complimentary matching digital file plus a print release. What you fall in love with and wish to purchase will be entirely up to you!
