ALL SESSIONS HAVE A RESERVATION FEE OF $49.00 and Include One High Resolution Digital Image unless otherwise stated. Additional products are extra.

Shine Photo is a Boutique Volume Studio. Mini Sessions are our Business!

Boutique: This means you get our full luxury experience in one of our awesome locations or in our comfortable studio. Boutique means our best service efforts, fabulous products and an enjoyable experience.

Volume: This means we keep prices down by sharing the expense of sessions with multiple people. We will photograph multiple sessions on a single day … meaning we only have to set up and organize once.

Over the past years, we have developed several systems to capture the images you need while keeping within a budget that you are comfortable with. In today’s current trend towards simplification and frugal living, it’s even more important than ever to surround yourself with only those things that you love.

That’s why great portraiture, prints and wall art are at the heart of everything we do. Surround yourself with images of the humans that make your life wonderful. ‘Frame what you Love!”

If you have any questions, reach out to us at 631 5162.

Shine Locations

We have several locations to serve you. Our main studio is located at 268 Red River Road.  It’s bright, warm and inviting with all the comforts of home. We have change rooms, a salon station, comfy chairs, a kitchen and a couture closet full of props & costumes. The comforts are rounded out with top of the line studio lighting and gear, multiple cloth, paper and solid backgrounds and a full background projection system.   All this means we are READY for your mini session!

Our original studio on Crawford Ave is also available for large groups and some specialty sessions.

We also have a 16 acre farm in Slate River Valley.  A short 5 minute drive from White Water Golf Course lands you in the heart of this breath-taking country side.  Have your mini session portraits done in grassy fields, our tree-farm forest, in the barn loft or with our rugged out buildings and rustic fences. Need some animals to photo-bomb your shoot? We’ve got them too!


  1. Double check your time.  Arrive 10-15 minutes early and wait outside the studio.
  2. Check your wardrobe.  Try to color co-ordinate people in the group.  Shoes and pants should be in the same style. Don’t let one person wear strappy sandals, while someone else wears tatty sneakers.  Choose ONE color and have everyone choose clothing that blends with that color.  Your chosen color should also blend with the backdrops for your chosen mini session.
  3. Full bellies and plenty of sleep make better portraits.   Bring extra milk and diapers for infants.
  4. Leave the stress at home.  If you’ve never had a portrait done at Shine Photo, you’re in for a treat. We’ll coach your to get the best expressions and work with you to create an awesome image.  It’s a stress free zone. Relax, have a cup of coffee with us and enjoy the experience!
