The Studio is located at 1751 Bellamah Ave. SW., Albuquerque, NM 87104 just outside of Old town in the new and upcoming Sawmill Village District.  We're lease than 5 minutes off I-40, next door to Ponderosa Brewery.  

The studio is available by appointment only for Consultations, Photo Sessions, Signature Viewing Appointments, and classes.


On location portrait sessions may be held throughout the greater Albuquerque area.  Popular areas include the Botanical Gardens, the Bosque, the Foothills, the Open Space, and Hartnett Park. 

Possibilities are endless and we look forward to working together to find the perfect location.

Please note that travel fees may apply to locations more than 30 miles from the studio and additional permit fees (for certain locations) may be required.

I realize many families travel from other areas around Albuquerque to come in for their portrait experience.  While in the city, you may want to visit some of the amazing places this city has to offer. The Studio is just a short drive from the Albuquerque Zoo and BioPark, the Aquarium, and Tingley Beach.  There are several beautiful trails in the Bosque to enjoy, several restaurants and a movie theater as well.  We'd love to help you experience the best of Albuquerque!


STEP 1 - Your consultation.  

This is where we decide what type of session you're looking to book, when you'd like to have your session, and the best location for your session.  Consultations typically take place in the studio, but may also take place over the phone or via email.   After all the details are outlined, a nonrefundable booking fee/retainer is paid, a contract is signed, and your session date & time is secured.  (Please note that a nonrefundable booking fee/retainer must be paid to commission Kat Oswald as your photographer.  A reminder will be sent if retainer is not paid within 48 hours, then the date will be released and available for other clients to book.)

STEP 2 - Your session.  

This is where your vision and my style come together.  Your session may last between 30 minutes to 4 hours, depending on the type of session you book.  Professional Hair Styling & Makeup Application is included with most sessions.  Senior, portrait, and family sessions may take place in-studio or on-location, or you may do both.  Please ask about destination sessions if you're looking for a unique location outside of New Mexico.

STEP 3 - Your ordering session.  

Approximately 7 business days after your session, we will meet in the studio for you to review your images during our Premier Ordering Session.  I will have select the top photographs from our time together and placed them into a beautiful slideshow for you and your family to review and enjoy on a large screen T.V..  After reviewing your images, you'll be able to select your favorites and we'll work together to customize a package (prints, digital files, canvas wall art, coffee table album, and/or a combination) that best suits your needs.  There is no minimum purchase required and a la carte options are available.
