Alisa Murray’s Signature Newborn sessions keep her clients coming back year after year! The Full sessions with the artist includes a full 2 hours in the studio with use of all of Alisa’s props + Talent. Then a full presentation where she gores over each image and assists her clients in selections of the very best shots form their session. Each image that has been selected is then purchased in the size that each client needs (these range form 5×7 $99-30×40 $1500) and then completely retouched, mounted and sent directly to their homes for framing.

For over 18 years, Alisa’s clientele have relied on her art to create a plethora of beautiful art for their homes.Year after year she delivers, wall of life legacy pieces as well as beach portraits, senior portraits and so forth. We would love for you to “Experience the Difference and Artist makes!”

Childhood Photography is such an important part of making sure each stage is captured throughout the entire childhood years. I start capturing babies around 3 days old and  annually from 2-18! Most of my clients find it an easy commitment with priceless rewards to bring me the children at least once a year. I especially love capturing generations and encourage my grands and greats to attend as many sessions as they can!

Morning my friends! I have been capturing families for 18 years and if you have never had the experience of a studio session where the only focus is on YOU then you deserve to give that to yourself and to your family.

Starting this fall, and yes we are there folks even though we are still having 90degree days my Christmas trees and pumpkins are already out! lol We are offering a very special… SPECIAL. I introduced the “Rock the Shots” series earlier this year and many of the regular clients have called and opted in for the ease of a mini session and no outfit changes. This really has proved to be the perfect way to capture the family and get it done without all the hulla ba loo that a full Signature session requires.

These sessions are time sensitive in that they are only 20 minutes and are often booked back to back. That is very different from the Signature sessions that last up to 2 hours and have time to get ready here at the studio. When booking these you’ll want to either come early or come ready to roll! There are no presentations and basically the set of digitals that you’ll receive are picked by me and lightly edited. They wear the STAMP signature for the Urban Child collection as their trademark and NOT the tm signature.

As we approach the heavy season these minis are limited to a set either in studio or outdoors based on weather, with the primary “look and feel” being that of natural lighting. The Signature black will never be a part of these because that is exclusively for the Wall of Life Collection and Heirloom Legacy Familial walls. If you want to combine the mini session as an add on to your already scheduled “Update Signature Session” that is TOTALLY FINE 🙂 That way you can knock out stuff for giving and also get the heirloom shots you need annually for our collections we have been working on for years.

 

One more thing is that is you refer friends to the studio you will get a print credit. With the holidays coming up everyone needs photos and with these Rock the Shots minis being so affordable it should be an easy sale to get your friends in here to meet your Auntie A! I look forward to seeing each of you and also making some new friends as well!

Take Care Ya’ll!

Hugs and Kisses…..

Auntie A

Ahhh… 18 month sessions are always fun and sometimes challenging. The baby that would sit in one place has now transformed into a very opinionanted and determined individual. Luckily, for my Preferred Auntie A club members the children are actually recognizing me by now and that makes for a whole lot of fun and less “warm up time.” The Signature Sessions are also at the 18 month marker the start to the exclusive house parties at the artist home…ie. me and when they can really run around and explore the yard without the pressure of an actual “performance.”

My Sweet little boy Cohen has been a cute pie ever since birth and each session brings more fun stuff for us to “get into” together! Of course we had to do his “update” for the Legacy Wall of Life and the signature window shot that I always do for every preferred family at this age… but when we really had some fun was outside chasing the cats and finding sticks! He is so very much a BOY! 🙂

 

How do I create unique portraits? KNOW YOUR SUBJECTS. Build a relationship with your artist! So probably the best way to make sure you get great shots is of course making sure that you incorporate settings that reflect who and what reflects you as a family. These girls live in the city and their father is an artist so what makes sense is to go to places that reflect their lifestyle…urban living and use the beautiful sculptures that Houston Art scene has two offer as props.

The idea of framing the family within a sculpture is a wonderfully unique way to capture a memorable portrait and using whimsy to mimick the sculptures in the garden is playful and beckons memories of childhood. I love being an artist and taking the time to create lasting and specifically unique images that reflect each of my families tastes and lives is an important job and one that I do not take lightly. That is why I always tell my newbies that I am your artist for life…what I do is not to just see you one time and then that’s it. No, my relationships between artist and family is a direct reflection of  my work of who they are and what they are about and that my friends is the difference an artist makes! #artist #alisamurray #alisamurrayphotography
