What to Expect In-Studio

When you arrive at our studios, we ensure best in class lighting, digital cameras, and backgrounds. To begin, the photographer will walk through all of your photography needs. If you’re not sure what you want, our photographers can help you choose a photography background, a studio prop and the best way to feature personal props from home. While in your session, our photographer will guide you through a variety of different poses and looks. The camera room experience lasts approximately 15 minutes.

Once your session is complete, you will review your images at our viewing kiosk with a studio team member. If you are bringing children with you, feel free to bring a small snack or toy to entertain them so that you can leisurely view and select your pictures. Instantly personalize your photography and tell your story by choosing from hundreds of design options that support single and multiple images. We offer a large selection of special effects and sheet options, including traditional, black and white or sepia. We also offer a quick and easy option to design custom cards and invitations.

Many of our guests select our digital image options which will be conveniently added to your Shutterfly account to be preserved with free unlimited photo storage. Within your Shutterfly account, you can download the images or create personalized photo products. Learn more about Shutterfly’s digital image delivery.
