How It Works

Teena Whitmore Portraits is New Orleans' premier full service photography studio. We are here to make sure that not only are your photographs beautiful, but your experience is exceptional. Every session is uniquely designed to reflect your family's personality, resulting in images that tell stories and evoke emotions. The best part? You go home with artwork ready to display. So what happens when you book a session?

1. Design Consultation

We will chat either in person or by phone to determine what you want the session to look like. Don't worry if you aren't sure - many of my clients aren't! I have lots of ideas to help you along the way.

We'll also go over the artwork options. How are you going to display your gorgeous photos? You can browse through our wall art and heirloom album samples. You will instantly see why clients book us - and start imaging your own family as art.


2. Portrait Session

Don't stress about this part - we've planned and prepared everything for this day! Just sit back and enjoy yourself. Whether you are watching or participating, this is fun. We have many years of experience working with all types of children and personalities, including special needs. Whether your child is shy or rambunctious, we follow their lead. Giggles, laughter, and smiles are typical. Most often, your child will be talking about this experience for weeks afterward. Get ready to hear about Flirty the Unicorn for even longer.


3. Your Gallery Reveal and Ordering Appointment

This is everyone's favorite part! This is the most exciting and emotional part of your portrait experience. You'll come back to the studio to see your final set of images for the very first time. We'll show you a custom slideshow of your images (families love this best). Don't worry if the tears well up, we provide the tissues, too.

After the slideshow, we'll go through each image more closely. We'll show you pre-designed albums and wall art so you can see exactly how your images will look. Make any changes you like, or keep things exactly as they are. These are your memories and we want them to be perfect for you. You'll make your final decisions during this appointment, and then we'll keep you updated on the status of your order.


4. Your Artwork Arrives

Once everything arrives, we will double check it to make sure that everything is perfect. Then we'll call you so you can take your family home! Everything will be ready to hang or display - no DIY projects needed.
