The Portraits By Ryan Experience

it’s more than just a portrait session.


We will start with an email/phone consultation to decide the overall goal and direction of your shoot, or if you are present at the studio we can have our consultation there.

I don’t try to fit you into a mold or photograph you the same way as everyone that has come before you. Instead, each session is unique. We develop a concept and bring that concept to life with you as the star!

Whatever your dream and vision, we will work to bring the pieces together for images that truly impress! This is your shoot! If you don’t quite have a vision for your photo shoot, not to worry! I will work with you to help build a shoot that fits your personality and style.

About You

Getting to know a bit about you will really help me to help you in the concept development process. I’ll ask you a series of questions to figure out what you love, visuals you are attracted to, purposes of the shoot, subjects of the shoot and more.

Hair & Makeup

Professional hair and makeup will help you look and feel your absolute best on a shoot. Styling may simply help you feel more confident, to help you shine in front of the camera, or help transform you into the vision for your shoot.

My hair and makeup artist will help bring the shoot to life.

The Day of the Shoot

On the day of the shoot you’ll want to arrive rested and ready to create stunning images with me.

No need to be anxious, I’ll walk you through the entire process!

What to Expect
  • The shoot will begin with going over your details to reaffirm the direction of the shoot
  • Then, you’ll begin your hair and makeup.
  • We will listen to music of your choice (be sure to come prepared with some ideas that fit the vibe you are going for!).
  • A photo shoot typically ranges between 1-3 hours from start to finish. Hair and makeup will take a while, so you’ll have plenty of time to wake up if you aren’t a morning person (If you have booked a morning session)!
  • The shoot will be at my studio, located at:
    6550 Comanche Trail, Suite 209
    Austin, Texas 78732

For studio shoots, I have a wide range of backgrounds and state of the art equipment for any concept we may come up with.

Lastly, I don’t keep your images a secret on the day. Along the way we will have a display monitor facing towards you so you can take a look at what we’ve been creating to get your feedback, preferences, and to ensure you are loving what we are creating.

Post Shoot

After the shoot, you will be provided with an online gallery featuring at least 60 of the best captures from the day. I will personally suggest some of my favorite images based upon my years of professional experience, but also welcome you to select the photographs that you really like as well.

Once your images have been selected, they will be sent to my professional retoucher to help reduce any distractions (blemishes, etc.) and to perfect the images. I will personally color grade your images, toning them to achieve the desired mood.

Images can be delivered as digital files but are also available in a full range of sizes of fine art prints. I am happy to help you in the image selection processes as to how your final images should be printed and displayed.
