Frequently Asked Questions
My goal is to make each senior and woman feel beautiful and fearless.
I only accept a limited number of clients each year in order to provide my clients with a one-of-a-kind completely customized experience that is focused completely on you.
The Fearless Session retainer fee is $450, + TX sales tax.
The Fearless Session retainer fee includes your photo session, professional hair and makeup, your in home wardrobe styling, and access to my fashion and accessories closet. Images and prints are sold separately. Each print contains a full resolution, full retouched digital image.
After your session, you will come back to my home studio for your Reveal Wall and Premiere Ordering Session, where I will help you select your favorite images and fine art product of choice. What you purchase is completely up to you, it's my job to create portraits of you that are so beautiful you simply must have them all -hint hint- most people do love and purchase all of their images.
One-on-one personalized wardrobe consultation & styling.
Before your session, we will meet in your home for a wardrobe consultation. Together, we’ll plan out your hair and makeup ideas and pick out your fabulous outfits. Sit back and relax while I plan all the details to make your dream portrait experience.
Hair and makeup is included in every session.
My hair and makeup artist comes to the photo session to do multiple looks. If you don't normally wear a lot of makeup that's okay - I promise you'll look like you, just camera ready. This is your session, and your look.
The dream experience for the beautiful and fearless.
Worried about not knowing how to pose? Don't be. I’ll show you how to pose while still looking natural. You'll also see back of the camera looks so you can see how amazing you look. By the end of the day, you’ll not only look and feel beautiful, you’ll feel empowered and fearless. Treat yourself to a day of luxury and fun.
What about products?
My job is to create portraits of you that are so beautiful, you simply must have them all.
Collections begin at $1,200 and go up from there. They can be customized to anything you want. The most popular senior product is the Archive Collection that includes ALL of your images printed 5x7 on fine art paper in a customizable box and a digital phone app (pictured below). The most popular women's product is the Chic Folio box that includes 25 matted 7x10 prints in a gorgeous keepsake box with a digital phone app. Both contain full resolution digital images.
What about digitals?
Each print contains a full resolution, full retouched digital image. Custom mobile apps are provided in my top two collections for women and my top two collections for seniors.
I believe photos are meant to be enjoyed both in print and on social media.
Do you photograph in a studio or on location?
I photograph in a natural light studio in my home, as well as locations in Austin. There is no location off limits but I do have some preferred spots that have top quality light.
Most seniors choose to go on location for their senior session, and most women choose to go for the indoor studio look. Whatever you decide works for me! We'll go over all of this when we meet for your wardrobe consultation.
How many outfits will I get to wear?
You can wear as many outfits as we can fit in the three hours. I typically recommend 4-5 outfits to showcase variety. We'll go over all of this at your wardrobe consultation.
I do have a fashion closet filled with beautiful clothes and accessories for you to borrow for your session.
What is the Premiere Ordering Session?
When you book your fearless experience at Jamie Gladden Photography, you will be booking 3 dates:
- The wardrobe consultation
- The session date
- Your Premiere Ordering Session
Your Premiere Ordering Session is where you will come to my studio to view the images from your session and make your product selections. All decision makers are required to be present at this appointment in order to move forward with the appointment. This appointment is typically scheduled 7-10 days after your session.
During the Premiere Ordering Session, all you need to do is relax, prepare to cry (yes – I have tissues available), and let me guide you through the process as you see your images beautifully printed on your Reveal Wall for the very first time. It’s truly like seeing your images displayed in an art gallery. Then we'll walk through adding any wall collections or albums at your request.
When will I get my product orders?
Depending on your final selections, your custom products will be ready 2-3 weeks after the sales appointment. If you purchase the Reveal Wall, your images can be taken home that day and the digital files will be in your email before you get home.
Payment plans are available but must be completed before any products or digitals are delivered.
Need your images fast? Rush delivery is also available.
How long do you keep my images?
All edited images are kept forever on a computer and an external hard drive. I would hate to think there wasn't a backup copy of your purchased images. Plus, I think they are beautiful, and who knows you might just see them as a sample on my wall sometime.
Can I bring a friend?
Women's Portraits - Mom's, daughters, sisters, friends are highly encouraged. We'll get some great solo shots as well as the two of you together.
Senior Portraits - Friends are welcome but please limit to one friend. A parent or legal guardian is REQUIRED to be at all meetings/sessions. NOTE: Booking must be completed by a parent (or legal guardian) unless the client is of legal age and will be the one fully responsible for all financial decisions.
