Your family is growing and changing every day. Capture them now as they are. Each family portrait session custom designed to fit the style and personality of your family.
"Ashley has photographed our family several times and each session results in her having captured the most beautiful, authentic, moments. When I look back on the pictures, I remember so much about my kids and our life at those moments because Ashley incorporates so much of our real life into the shoot. She is extremely professional, good-natured and easy to work with. Highly recommend!"
"Ashley did an awesome job with our pictures and really went above and beyond. Will definitely be using her again."
"Always smiling, professional and like a friend you’ve known forever, captures your ideas better than you imagined and very timely. She’s very communicative and always responds when you reach out to her. Will never use another photographer!!"
Your family photos should reflect that. Our in-person or video chat design consultations ensure that the images we create for every family highlight the uniqueness of who you are all together right now.
It is rare to have everyone in the same place at the same time, but as a university town, centrally located between all major Texas cities, College Station draws lots of family reunions, graduation weekends, football gatherings, and family holidays. We have everything in place to help create an extended family portrait session to meet all the needs of your multigenerational crowd.
In-studio or on location, posed or candid, it is so important to document your children before these milestones are gone forever. Trust your memories to a certified professional and know that you won't have to worry about technical issues or where to print. It will all be taken care of. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy your new custom artwork.
Having portraits made is an investment in your future, and at the pace of changing technology, digital files are just not as sustainable as physical, archival quality printed pieces. (When was the last time you purchased a computer that you could pull images off that CD you got 5 years ago?)
Though digital collections are available, we are uniquely set up to take you step by step through choosing the right custom printed pieces for your family and your living space.
We can even mock up collections digitally on your own walls with your own furniture to ensure proper sizing and finishes for your aesthetic.
You are welcome to bring as many family members as you like! The more, the merrier. We have worked with families as small as a boy and his dog, all the way up to family reunions of 100+. All we ask is that you tell us ahead of time how many to plan for so we can bring enough lights!
We all believe our dog is the best animal that ever lived, and maybe your fido really is the best, but regardless, there will be times throughout the session where we will need to take images of you or your family members without the dog, so we ask that if you plan to incorporate your pet in your session, that you also bring an extra human friend to handle Lassie during the other parts of the session. Once again, please just provide us with a "heads up" if you plan to bring a pet.
Each family portrait session experience starts with an in-person or video chat design consultation where we will plan out the location, wardrobe and style. However, plan to simplify, simplify, simplify. The more complicated your wardrobe is, the more it will distract from your faces, so when in doubt, avoid screen printing, logos, loud patterns and very bright colors.
Your ordering appointment will be scheduled within a 2 week window of your sitting. Depending on what you choose, your custom artwork will be ready within 2-4 weeks from your ordering appointment. Please allow extra time if you request in-depth retouching. If you need your images rushed, please be sure to communicate your needs ahead of time so that we can best serve your needs!
Unfortunately, as we all know, life is fragile. At Fig-Mint Photography we treasure the opportunity to capture the generations of your family, with all of the joy and personality we can muster! Be sure to capture your loved ones and create memories to look back on.Book your session now
And why should you choose a CPP over another photographer?
You may not know that there are certifications and mastery degrees in the photography world, but indeed there are!
A certified professional photographer has gone through a rigorous process including a proctored written exam, followed by an intensive portfolio review by a panel of national judges. This process ensures that a photographer who has passed the CPP process has a mastery of light and can create amazing images in any lighting situation.
A Photographic Craftsman has obtained a collection of approved teaching merits, meaning he or she has reached a level of confidence in their photography as to teach others in the industry. Both Fig-Mint photographers, Ashley Siegert and Kathy Norwood have achieved both CPP and craftsman degrees and are both now striving for "Master of Photography" designations by entering images in international print competitions on an annual basis.
