What to expect in the studio

Scheduling your appointment

Target Portrait Studios celebrates every stage of life by capturing memories to create timeless portraits. Scheduling your portrait session online is quick and convenient.  If you would prefer, you may call your local studio to schedule or find out hours of operation.

Preparing for your portrait session

Prepare for your session by viewing our online portrait portfolio, backgrounds and collection options for all portrait ideas. Personalize your session with a cherished item, like a favorite toy, a family heirloom, a knit hat or blanket. Our studios also have a small selection of props for you to use.

In the Camera Room

When you come into our studios, we ensure best in class lighting, digital cameras, and backgrounds. Our professional photographers go out of their way to give you individualized attention that will capture your style. To start, the photographer will discuss your portrait needs. If you're not sure what you want in your portrait, our photographers can help you choose a portrait background, a studio prop and the best way to feature special items from home. During the session, our photographer will guide you through a variety of poses and looks. The camera room experience lasts approximately 10 minutes.

View, customize and order your portraits

At the end of your session, you will review your portrait options at our viewing kiosk with a studio team member.  Feel free to bring a small snack or toy to entertain your children so you may leisurely view and select your portraits.  Instantly personalize your portraits and tell your story by choosing from hundreds of design options that support single and multiple images. We offer a large selection of special effects and portrait style options, including traditional, black and white or sepia.  We also offer a quick and easy option to design custom cards and invitations. Many of our guests select one of our digital CD options to print and share their professional portraits.

Be sure to bring your portrait coupons to your sitting. The studio team member will assist you in finding the greatest savings and best Collection options.  Once your order is completed, it will be sent to our top-of-the-line facilities for high quality processing. Your portraits will arrive in our studio for pickup approximately 7-10 business days after your visit. For a small fee you may want to expedite the process by shipping them directly to your home.
