You decided to do family or personal portrait photo session. But what are you going to do with your photos?

At Anna Shmel Photography our work is to create images that really fit your personality. We believe that every detail matters. Beginning with detailed preparation for the photoshoot and ending to the right choice of the finish for the product that will reflect your vision or style of your house where you want to hang your portraits.

My process


Session Fee is $350 collected at the time of booking and includes the following:


We will begin with ​Style and concept consultation in person or via Skype or Facetime. We will discuss all aspects of your session including style, posing, lighting, and wardrobe, and provide plenty of tips on how to best prepare for your session. 


  • A professional hair and makeup artist will be on-site the day of your shoot to create the perfect look  (session fee covers hair and makeup for 1 person).

  • To give us the freedom to perfect each step in the process, we only book one client per day.

  • There is no need to worry about “posing.” Anna will skillfully coach you, focusing on your most flattering angles while providing a luxurious day of pampering.


Two weeks after your photo shoot, you will come to the studio for your View and Order session. Your View and Order appointment is the time set aside to finalize your portrait order, so be sure and schedule a time when both mom and dad can be there.

Anna will guide you every step of the way using your goals from the consultation to achieve your vision for your family portraits.


Our studio offers heirloom quality fine art prints, portfolio boxes, and elegant wall art for a spectacular presentation of your most beautiful and treasured memories. Our product collections start from $1200. For a full price guide please contact studio.

What is your dream photo shoot?  It might be a specific place in the US or abroad, a person, or a subject that you’d like to document. Or maybe it’s more of a general concept. Either way, it’s something worth taking the time to ponder. Want to dance under the Eiffel Tower at dawn? Or desire fascinating photo shoot in the romantic city of Venice, go for it. Dare to realize your dreams! We will help you to organize the photo shoot of your dream.
