It's important to remember that we all have magic inside us. - J.K. Rowling

 

The day you became a parent is a day you'll never forget. The tears, the joys, the flood of emotions rushing through you as the reality sets in that you're a parent now.

 

You will forget the little moments with your kids when you "wish you took a picture of that!" And as time goes on, those little moments collect into one big book of lost memories until one day, you ask yourself, "Boy, where did the time go?!"

 

That's why I'm here, and that's why I've chosen this niche. I want to help you collect those tiny moments so that you'll have a giant book of beautiful memories that'll last for years and years and years.

 

why hire Thamica?

EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE

 

When it comes to serving my clients, I go the extra mile and run the marathon! I believe in helping my clients by promptly responding to your emails and delivering your images fast! Got a deadline? Let me know when it is, and I'll work hard to honor it.

PROBLEMS SOLVED BEFORE THEY HAPPEN.

 

With 5 years of experience, I’m great at anticipating tricky situations and resolving them in advance. For example, I know that sessions go most smoothly if I win the trust of your kids first, so the first thing I do when I arrive for your session is get down on their level and play.

ALL THE PATIENCE IN THE WORLD

 

I'm an aunt to seven (mostly grown) kids, and I'll tell you what I learned over the years: Kids do things on their own terms, and you've gotta go with the flow. So, if your kiddo has an epic meltdown right in the middle of the session, it's okay! I got this.

A PERSONAL STYLIST.

 

Don’t have perfectly Pinterest-styled outfits? That’s TOTALLY OK! We can create gorgeous images no matter what you’re wearing. BUT, if you’re like me and love to plan, and need a little help, I’ll send you clothing tips and sample combos for inspiration, or you can even have me choose your outfits for you.

WE ALL HAVE MAGIC INSIDE US!

 

Listen, nobody walks into a session, knowing what to do in front of the camera. Except for Tyra Banks... Don't worry about how to pose. My job is to coach you through that! Take a look at my portfolio, and you'll see that it features real clients, not models.

FAMILY IS EVERYTHING.

 

When you work with me, you become my extended family. I’ll cheer with you when your baby graduates from kindergarten, and I’ll tear up if you move away. I’ve been photographing some of my clients since my first days in business, and it’s been a joy and a privilege to watch their children grow and change.

So how does it work?

1) First, we'll chat.

 

I want to understand your vibe, your heart, and what's important to capture in your session. Simply drop me a note, and we'll schedule a time to chat and get to know each other! Next, I'll send you a contract, you send me a deposit, and we're all set!

2) Let the magic begin!

 

Who knew that having your photo taken could be fun? I'll come to your home, or we can plan an outdoor playdate in downtown Austin. I'll roll in the dirt with your kiddos, play fun games, and even convince dad to crack a smile!

3) Take home frame-worthy photos!

 

I'll announce your gallery with 4x6 prints of the best 20 images from your session, a USB drive with all edited images from your gallery, and an online gallery for you to order prints!

Thamica is fabulous! We had the pleasure of having her capture our family's first photo shoot! She made us all comfortable and was able to capture some great moments with my 4-year old, and lets face it 4-year olds aren't the best clients! Totally recommend Mica for any moment in time that you want captured in pictures!

It may have been freezing cold but the warmth of Mica's heart made our session so worth it. We loved working with her!

I really enjoyed the fact that she is such a natural. I didn't have to worry about anything and her attention to detail was right on point. Very great to work with and even better outcome.. she captures the realism.

frequently asked

questions

My clients love great style and design, but they enjoy comfy clothes just as much. They are "Sirius" Harry Potter fans and channel their inner Molly Weasley on the daily. My clients believe that hugging is an expression of love and that portraits belong on walls, not collecting dust in a folder on a hard drive. They also believe that portraits are a gift for their children and future grandchildren. My clients are busy people; they also believe in finding time to laugh together.
My style is a combination of posed and candid moments. I think it’s important to capture a few classic shots with everyone looking at the camera (for grandma!); but I also love the ‘in-between’ moments — the way mom looks at dad as he swings his daughter on his back for a piggyback ride, or the way your son giggles with mischievous playfulness as he toddles away from you.
Sessions typically take place either outdoors in Austin such as a park or downtown, in a studio, or in your very own backyard. Bonus points if you can think of a location that’s meaningful to your family.
I love helping my clients choose their outfits — it’s like piecing together a collage! Before your session, I’ll send you a Welcome Package that contains a guide that’s jam-packed with clothing tips and tricks. If you’re extra stumped, you’re welcome to send me photos of potential combos so that I can give you personalized guidance.
Gotta love Austin weather, huh? I keep a number of backup dates open each month in case of bad weather. There’s no charge to reschedule to a new date if it’s raining or overcast.
Well, here's a tale I haven't heard before. Believe it or not, nearly EVERYONE tells me this before their session, and I prove them wrong! We all have magic inside of us and I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve to bring that magic out. When you’re having a great time, you’ll look more beautiful than you thought possible — I promise!
Short Answer: Yes! Long Answer: I believe that you should be able to print and share your images as many times as you’d like, and that’s why every session includes your full-resolution digital files on an online gallery. I recommend you order your prints through me. I work with a fabulous printing lab that provides top-notch products that are inspected carefully by me.
You’ll receive your fully retouched gallery two weeks after your session date. Your gallery will be delivered in a special presentation with 20 4x6 prints of the best images from your session, a USB drive with your digitals, and access to your online gallery. I believe that first impressions are lasting impressions, and I want the first time you look at your images to be on the professional, high-quality paper provided from a printing lab that specializes in professional printing services. Only the best for my clients!
Well, you’re in luck! I have many more answers!

Austin, Texas

Every family has a magical story to tell, and I'm eager to capture yours.
