It's important to remember that we all have magic inside us. - J.K. Rowling
Remember the day you became a parent? The rush of emotions you felt as your child opened their eyes and looked straight into yours? The look, so pure, so trusting. The next few months were hectic as you settled into your new role, and before you knew it, you were writing out the invitations for their first birthday party. "Wow," you thought. "This year just flew by!"
Do you find yourself in moments with your kids and you think "Oh! I should take a picture of that!", but the thought leaves your mind as quickly as it entered?
Imagine this: One year turned into eight years, and you’re left struggling to remember the days when your baby used to fit in your arms.
What if eighteen years go by, or thirty years, or fifty, and the only memories you have of your family are cell phone snapshots that you took yourself?
Imagine gathering up your family’s flitting moments — not only what they look like, but what they feel like. Imagine your family in genuine, radiant, combined imagery — and being able to hang those memories throughout your house to enjoy 20 years from now.
Introducing Thamica Photography family portrait sessions. Give me your trust, a couple of hours, and I’ll give you a family adventure as memorable as your final images. Whether we're playing in the park, exploring the capital, or hanging out in your backyard, I know that we'll have a fun time together. Every family has a magical story. I’d love to tell yours.
EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE
I go the extra mile — especially in how I serve my clients. Email responses and image turnaround will always be prompt! If you have a special deadline, I will work hard to honor it. That’s how I roll — my client relationships are of supreme importance to me!
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.
ENDLESS PATIENCE & ENTHUSIASM
Let's be real, kids do things on their own terms. As an auntie to seven kids and a child photographer, I expect this! I’m not upset when your three-year-old has a meltdown or when your son asks to take a picture with my camera. I simply love kids.
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!
All of the images you see in my portfolio feature REAL people, REAL clients, not models. Nobody comes into a session knowing what to do in front of the camera, so it’s my job to coach you! I’ll help you set up each pose and give you little tips to make you look your best.
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.
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!
• 1-1.5 hours of photography at an outdoor location in Austin or in your home.
• 20 4x6 prints of the best images from session printed on high-quality printing paper.

• Custom retouching for every image in your order. Blemishes and flyaway hairs = gone!
• A welcome guide to help you prepare for your session.
• A planning call and session guide to help you look and feel your best.
• A USB drive with web digitals.
• Travel included for Austin locations; outside of Austin, please inquire for a travel quote.
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!
Brandi + Antone
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.
