It's all about the light...
Senior portraits for Dallas, Plano, Richardson and Frisco
Tuesday, March 17, 2015 3:36PM

 In many parts of the country, fall is the big time for senior portraits --but here in Dallas, it's pretty warm in the fall and then all of a sudden it's the holiday.! So, what usually happens is April arrives and high school seniors wake up and freak out because they haven't made any plans to have their portraits done.  They don't want the lame announcement cards they sell at school but what can the do?  It's too late to have any real senior photos made and graduation is around the corner.  So here's your reminder.  The weather is finally getting better and it's time to pick a date.  Late afternoons work great --the light is nice and you don't even have to get out of bed early.  In fact, we do a lot of portrait sessions after school.  Thank you, Daylight Savings Time.  We have several session options to choose from, including the Quick and Easy session which is a short session for just a little bit of cash.  Call us today!  Our hair and makeup artists are standing by.  If you haven't visited our Seniors website, be sure and check out TERESA BERG SENIORS and make a plan.

Our spring DOG SHOTS workshop is scheduled for Sunday, April 12th. This basic one day workshop is perfect for people who love pets but are still learning to love their cameras!  We explore the manual settings and why they're so important --and talk about lenses and which lens is the best for which type of shot.  This is our beginner workshop and it's a long, full day of fun.  Starting in our studio we talk about camera settings and using natural light indoors -- then we move outdoors to the nearby park and set up a variety of shots with live dog models so you get to make beautiful quality pet portraits with YOUR equipment and a professional nearby to guide you.We limit this class to 10 people, so don't delay!  Sign up by calling the studio at 972-250-2415. Use a credit or debit card or paypal -- or if you're local, send us a check!  Your class fee of $295 is non-refundable, and lunch is included.

Hot Valentine's Day Special for a cold day...
Tuesday, January 06, 2015 2:44PM

Things heat up around here for Valentine's Day!  We pump up the estrogen levels and have two days of hair styling, make up artistry and sexy photography -- all in honor of the day of love.  I don't mind telling you there are some VERY LUCKY men in Dallas opening some gorgeous albums, coffee table books and custom image boxes every year.  And all because we get the great people from the Johnny Rodgriguez Salon over here to work their magic before we shoot.   Everyone looks and feels gorgeous so if you're celebrating a birthday, a weight loss, an anniversary (or a divorce!) or you just want a fantastic gift he'll never forget --call us now and book your session.  The $250 fee includes hair and makeup and your thirty minute photo session (add an extra 30 minutes of shooting for $100, but you must tell us when you're booking so we can schedule appropriately). We'll get credit card information over the phone when you book and send you a list of suggestions on what to bring.  Thirty minutes is usually enough for 2-3 outfits and tons of fun.  You'll come back to the studio a few days later to make your selections and place your order. Prints start at $50, and we have a whole list of fun ways to surprise your Valentine.

Custom Holiday Cards from Teresa Berg Photography
Tuesday, November 04, 2014 9:48AM

Tired of the same old graphics and borders?  Custom cards are the way to go.  If you've got really good photography, you don't need all the little swirls and pine cones to make an impact.  We love designing custom cards for our clients using great family portraits.  And to save even more time and money, schedule a Half Session in the studio (only available on weekdays).  Half sessions are easier to schedule than outdoor sessions and much easier for Mom to keep everyone looking their best.  Thirty minutes of fun at a reduced price ($125) and create your beautiful card. So easy.  Try using either our WHITE & WHITE  or BLACK & GRAY color schemes and you don't even need to worry about coordinating all the outfits.  And don't forget what a wonderful gift a photograph makes -- no need to worry about what size grandma wears -- she'll love an 8x10!Whatever colors work best for your family -- try a Half Session in the studio and give yourself a break from the crush of the holiday to-do list!

Dallas Family Photographer - What to wear and when to shoot!
Friday, September 26, 2014 9:37AM

Fall family photography sessions are a favorite around here. We love the late afternoon light and casual clothes which allow everyone to relax and have fun.  One of our favorite tricks is to catch kids playing games for the camera (if they're old enough).  That carefree feeling of being a barefoot kid in the park is refreshing for us grownups and it gives the kids permission to be silly.  So, to re-cap:  Schedule your family photo session in the late afternoon (or early morning) for the best light. Secondly, wear casual clothes for that natural "lifestyle" look, like we're showing here. And lastly, call early for the best date and time. The first cool weekend triggers an avalanche of calls at most Dallas area photography studios and you may not be able to get a Saturday appointment.  Weekdays are a little easier for us, so if you have a flexible schedule, consider an after school or early evening appointment and you may have better luck getting on the calendar.And when you're planning your portrait wall -- be sure to add a couple of black and white options.  It's an absolute classic that you will never tire of.  Especially if you're not sure you want BRIGHT green grass as a background color in your portraits. Sidewalks and leaves add those neutral earthy tones that call attention to skin, hair and eyes so nicely -- where sometimes green grass ...
