Allison Wilkins McPhail took beautiful family photos for us. She was professional and personable- making the experience fun and memorable for our family of 6. The photos captured personalities, love and laughter. We had a hard time choosing because they were so well done. Thanks for capturing a fun family afternoon, Allison! It was a pleasure working with you.

For 15 years Evin, then Allison, has captured our family. Three generations have been rewarded with beautiful, creative images that reflect the character as well as growth in our family. In short, we can’t say enough about how wonderful Allison has been through the last session, and we’ll look forward to future opportunities as the family matures even more. They are truly carrying forward the phenomenal legacy of Evin!

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?

Houston Photographers – We always begin every client relationship with the end results in mind – a tangible art piece for your home. While all of our families go home with digital images, it’s another issue to try to do something beautiful with them. Why hire a professional if the files will just collect digital dust?

On top of that, digital files are not archival and will not last, eventually corrupting.

Houston Photographers – At Evin Thayer Studios, we hold your hand every step of the way to create gorgeous albums and wall art for you that complement your home and pay tribute to your family’s love. Products with once-in-a-lifetime imagery that represent the reasons we live for.

Some Common Questions

What do we wear for a family session?

Planning what you and your family will wear can be stressful, and we are happy to help you figure out what to wear in our planning session prior to the photoshoot. What you and your family will wear depends on many different things, like the location of the shoot, the season the shoot is taking place in, and your overall vision for the shoot. Above all, we want to capture your family’s essence and dynamic, so wear something that is true to your family’s personality!

Can we include our family pet in the photoshoot?

A family portrait isn’t complete without your furry or feathered family members! If you are worried about how your pet will behave in the studio, try taking them out somewhere in public like a park or outdoor café. If they do well there, they should be fine and are welcome here in the studio! Pro tip: bring their favorite treats or toy to get their attention and ensure their happiness throughout the photoshoot. Bonus pro tip: if they are small enough, bring a carrier to put them in so that you don’t worry about their whereabouts while human only family portraits are being taken or while you are reviewing and choosing your images. Learn more about our pet photography services here!

How far in advanced should I book a family session?

Because we like to have consultations in person or via Zoom with families for planning purposes, we recommend booking your session about two weeks in advance. For family portraits during the holiday season, we recommend scheduling a month in advance, especially if you would like a session during the weekend. We want to make sure we have enough time to plan your perfect photoshoot, which includes planning the concept of your photoshoot and scouting locations, and for you to prepare for your photoshoot, which could include shopping for the perfect outfit and making appointments for hair, nails, or makeup. If you would like to book a family portrait session or set up a consultation, contact us here!

How soon can we see our photos?

We always offer an immediate image review after each session. If reviewing your family portraits on the same day doesn’t work with your schedule or your kids and/or fur babies are ready to go home, we can always reschedule the image selection process when it’s more convenient. 

Can you help us with posing?

Have that “I don’t know what to do with my hands!” problem? No worries! I have tons of tools in my back pocket and am happy to help everyone pose and look their best in your family portrait!
