The Info


Custom Photography Experience

I totally understand that planning your photography session can be daunting or intimidating.  I want to take all the stress away from you and turn this into a fun, one-of-a-kind photography experience that you and your family will enjoy and talk about for years to come. I’ll be there to guide you through the process from start to finish.  So if you have questions about what to wear or what your family should do.  Don’t worry, just ask.  We can customize your session based on things that are important to you.

Pre-Session Consultation:

I will chat with you to pick the date, location, and even help with wardrobe ideas that will match your vision and what you have in mind for your final heirloom art from your portrait session. It is at this time that you will pay your non-refundable retainer to hold your session date.

Photography Session:

On the day of your session, we’ll take our time, we’ll have fun, and you won’t be rushed at all.  I don’t like putting time-limits on a session, because you never know how they will go. But, if anyone in your group has other engagements, we can get the images with him or her in the first 20 minutes or so then focus on the individuals later in the session.  I know life is busy and you want gorgeous images from your life, but don’t always have the time. My goal for you is to simply enjoy the session and time with your family.  I always say, there will be plenty of laughs! I’m not afraid to be silly, trust me. These sessions are scheduled early in the morning and late in the evening when the lighting is best.

Post Session:

The best part is yet to come! About two weeks after the session, your images will be ready. This is the part you’ve been waiting for. I’ll contact you and we will set up a time for you to view your images and decide what you like to invest in. You can order your art, albums, canvases or gift prints, or purchase digital files at this time.

When it comes to photographs, there’s nothing better than seeing your images come to life through printed art.  As years go by, those photographs are there to bring you back to those special moments in time and make you smile. And, because technology and hard drives can fail, I strive to help you preserve those precious memories of your adventures and love in the most tangible way possible – with actual art and products to hold in your hand, hang on your walls, and to pass down for generations! After all, your family is the most important creation and biggest adventure you have.

Specializing in full service custom photography, I guide you through the entire process. From the pre-session consultation to determine your desires, to the photo session, to designing, ordering, and delivering your art. I love creating custom wall galleries, albums, and other special products that feature your beautiful memories to display in your home. You will enjoy this art for years to come. While digital files are still an option, let’s face it, most of them end up on a hard drive on your computer. Sometimes it’s difficult to know what to print, what size, and where to put it.

That’s where I come in. Not only to photograph the session, but to assist you in finishing the total package. This gives you gorgeous high quality artwork and products to treasure for a lifetime! This is more than just “files”, this is ART. You, your family, your adventures, your story, your love, are the featured subject on your walls!

All images are photographed and artistically designed by Jama Pantel in the Greater Austin area. Some locations that are great if you need help deciding, Mary Moore Searight Park, Bull Creek Lake ParkHotel San Jose, South Congress Avenue, Brushy Creek Lake Park, University of Texas at Austin campus, and Texas State Capital. I pride myself on professional processing and skillful knowledge of the art of photography. My main objective is providing a custom portrait experience to present you with beautiful art to showcase in your home. I can help provide you with product placement consultations, custom gallery wall designs, and custom albums. Contact me to schedule your session today.
