Avoid the mistakes so many make with their advertising budgets

The number one mistake you COULD make is wasting time and money on a photographer who can't deliver images that sell or are low quality. What's worse is allowing someone in your office to do it who has a decent camera or camera phone.

Advertising images should make you or your business look the very best. Don't trust this valuable resoure to anyone who is not a true professional and years of experience.

For over 25 years we've photographed East Texas businesses who continue to come to us because they realize the importance of a no-stress experience that comes with choosing an expert.

Just a few easy steps to getting outstanding business and/or advertising photos!

Finding an available day for your appointment is the FIRST STEP. We understand how hard it is to schedule, especially while keeping your business running. If you're being photographed at the studio, we are open late on Tuesdays. We also have the option of photographing on location to better serve your business needs.

TWO appointment options

Business Head Shot

Look no further if you are looking to up your game or want to put a fresh face with your promotion or simply update your social status and image. Our Business Head Shot Appointment provides you with two background choices from your outfit of choice as well as immediate viewing. Includes a 2-year image usage release of one retouched image which allows you to use it for advertising and marketing purposes. Call us to schedule if more than one person will be photographed.

$125 + tax

Location Business and Advertising Photography

Your location may be the best choice when promoting your business. We are experts at bringing the necessary lighting to photograph in any location. Our location appointments are scheduled in hour blocks and cover our professional time. A per image usage fee ($75) will be billed for any used images. We are happy to provide a QUOTE prior to photography.

$250 + tax (first hour, $125 additional hour) CALL TO SCHEDULE


We highly recommend scheduling a FREE consultation prior to photography especially if your image needs require anything more than a standard head shot. During the 15 minute consultation we can better understand your business needs and how the images will be used and if we need to photograph on location.

The Victorian Studio

House of Photography street view

The Victorian Albert A Nelson Home

House of Photography since 2004

Our studio is located in the historic Victorian home built for Albert A. Nelson in 1898. The home has seen many changes and owners over the past 100 plus years. It was designed by Diedrich Rulfs, who designed more than 50 homes, churches and buildings in Nacogdoches from the 1880s until the 1920s. Many are listed as Texas Historical Landmarks or National Register Landmarks.

The mere fact that we operate out of this gorgeous home gives our studio an edge others cannot compete with. It's not just the unique look we can achieve from our in-studio portraits either. Our studio is an inviting place where clients and prospective clients alike may leisurely engage in one of our no-obligation consultations. While we get to know you better, your children are free to enjoy the playhouse and play area. This process helps the entire family feel comfortable when the time comes to take portraits.
