Karen Laine Photography offers a variety of session options to meet your specific needs. You can choose for your session to take place in the studio (most popular) or on location. You can even select a combination of the two in some cases. When we speak on the phone, I'll ask some questions to get at the heart of which options best meet your needs and help develop a vision for your session. We will go in depth discovering your personality, what's important to you, what the best parts of your life are right now, how and where you plan to enjoy your portraits, and your preferred aesthetic. If you are coming to us for business or personal branding portraits, we will not only discover who YOU are, but who your client is and the message you want to convey to them.

As a part of planning your session, we walk you through every step, including personalized wardrobe/style consultation, available hair and make up services, and our portrait guide booklet to help you stay on track with planning and what to expect every step of the way.

On your session day you'll enjoy a relaxed and fun atmosphere focused on YOU while capturing your best self, reveal your true spirit, and tell the story of relationships that mean the most to you and those you love. We will not only capture images that embody the personality of you and your loved ones, but also those little details that you never want to forget, like tiny little toes of your sweet new baby, or the tender touch of gently clasped hands. These details help tell your full story in wall collections and albums that make a statement.

We will finish everything off with expert art design and image selection assistance at your reveal and ordering appointment in our downtown McKinney, Texas studio. Once your order is placed, our production team will get started creating your one of a kind pieces complete with high level retouching and the highest quality processes and finishes from the world's top pro labs. Wrap it all up with a big bow and our satisfaction guarantee. We can't wait for you to have your amazing art pieces adorn the walls and tables of your home, daily reminding you of your amazing life.
