Once in a lifetime
Congratulations! You’ve worked hard the past 4 years and deserve the best Senior Pictures. We want to tell your story by offering you a one of a kind Senior Portrait Experience! Our Senior Sessions will empower you and improve your self-confidence!
“I’ve waited my whole life for a photo session like this! Heidi & Gerry pampered me from the minute I walked in the studio. I went with De La Teja Studio because I wanted something different! Heidi & Gerry escorted us to incredible out of town locations we had never seen in any other senior photos.
My Senior Session was fun, engaging and motivating. Heidi & Gerry boosted my confidence (I haven’t laughed that hard in years! ) When I look at the diversity of images De La Teja Studio gave me, I see a side of myself no one else has ever captured before. Thank you, Kat.”
Make your life easier ~ Let us help you!
We provide a 5 star Senior Portrait Experience unsurpassed in it’s level of pampering and TLC! Our relaxed senior sessions allow you to express your distinct personality without judgement.
Your senior pictures should highlight your beauty in a way that truly tells your story and captures your personality. We take pride in making the experience fun and easy.
Equine Photography ~ For Horse Lovers
Since our pets are part of our family we believe they should be included in your photo session, especially one as important as your Senior Pics! We would love to include your four legged friend into your session and for those who “show” these pictures make great marketing material with your Stallion or Mare.
Horses are like people and have many layers to their personalities. Our goal is to uncover these layers to allow your horses’s personality shine through! We guarantee a “stress free” photo session that you can feel confident your horse will be magnificently captured! These are more than just photographs, equine photography makes a statement of your passion!
Leave Your Mark
We are committed to every senior grad we work along side and have your best interest in mind. Our portfolio is a compilation of incredible students that have allowed us to come into their lives and tell their stories.
As artists we understand composition, lighting, and interpret the vibe of the session offering graceful direction so your pictures never look stiff or over posed. We promise to listen to your requests most importantly, make you laugh…after a few moments you won’t even realize were taking pictures.
Everybody has a story to tell, we want to tell yours!
As unconventional photographers we look for hidden moments including candids with wind swept hair, cordial grins, unpredictable laughs, and sincere eyes.
We understand you have invested nearly two decades of valuable time and unconditional love into your kids. Senior graduation is an iconic event and you only have once chance to get it right. Why settle for ordinary senior pictures when you can have extraordinary!
We offer a wide range of Senior Collections to fit everyones needs. We suggest a fun meet & greet at our Appleton home studio to kick things off. Once you clarify your needs we will structure a Collection that’s right for you. No mileage fee within Fox Cites, no additional sitting fee and no minimum purchase.
Let’s Create A Senior Adventure Together!
STEP 1 ~ Meet & Greet
Our home studio ~ boutique is located at 2706 Independence ct. Appleton, but we travel everywhere!
We place a high value on developing a close connection with our clients. Meet & greets run 20 – 30 min including a refreshing beverage of your choice and feel good tunes. Once you choose your date we simply require a signed contract & deposit of 1/2 down to hold your date. If you have any questions just ask, we are here to help!
Step 2 ~ Clothing Selection
Our fashion photography background allows us to give graceful direction and suggestions for flattering poses. We have photographed Senior Portraits, Models and Pageants from Appleton to San Francisco. We feel our extensive travels and experiences have given us an artistic edge capturing the in between moments” that most others miss.
We are your fashion guides and want to help you select outfits that will compliment your skin and hair tone to set your senior pictures aside from the others. We suggest a casual and a formal look for starters ~ adding your fav sport or hobby for a third or fourth look. Don’t forget accessories, like hats, jewelry, scarves and shoes. Personalize your images with your pet, a classic car or motorcycle.
If you would like help putting your “looks” together we would be happy to meet you at your favorite store to discuss exciting options. We observe senior trends from the east and west coasts and want to give you the best fashion advice ~ why blend in when you can stand out!
STEP 3 ~ Shooting On location
We are your location scouts ~ from Appleton to Door County, Madison to the Dells and Milwaukee to Chicago. We love to travel and don’t want to repeat what other photographers have done or where your friends have gone. We offer a destination Collection just in case you wish to take it to the next level and head out of state!
