SESSION LOCATION INFORMATION
The Studio is located at 6000 Midway Park Blvd, Suite A - only a few minutes from I-25 and Jefferson.
It is a beautiful 3000+ sq ft area with a large lobby area for family members to relax, a toddler play area to keep children entertained, an elegant viewing rooms and a large open studio area with 3 separate shooting areas and numerous backdrops to choose from. The Studio offers endless space and opportunities for your session. Being a full service boutique studio, we also offer an area for hair and makeup, and private changing rooms.
The studio is available by appointment only for Consultations, Photo Sessions, Signature Viewing Appointments, and classes.
ON LOCATION SESSIONS
On location portrait sessions may be held throughout the greater Albuquerque area. Popular areas include Old Town, Downtown, Uptown, the Botanical Gardens, the Bosque, the Foothills, Bachechi Open Space, Alameda 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.
WHAT TO EXPECT
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 our studio, but may also take place over the phone or via email. After all the details are outlined, a nonrefundable retainer is paid, a contract is signed, and your session date & time is secured. (Please note that a nonrefundable retainer must be paid to commission Kat Oswald as your photographer. A reminder will be sent if retainer is not paid within 2 days, 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. Portrait and family sessions may take place in-studio or on-location. Please ask about destination sessions if you're looking for a unique location outside of New Mexico.
STEP 3 - Your ordering session.
Approximately 1 week after your session, we will meet in my 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 favorite images 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.
Session Fees begin at $199. Your session fee is required to commission Kat Oswald as your photographer and includes time and talent of the photographer, professional hair styling and makeup application (if included with session), your portrait experience, editing of your images, and your Premier Ordering Session.
