Summer is nearing its end, school is about to start and vacations are (for the most part) over.  While there is a little bit of time before things get hectic again in the fall, think about a photo shoot for one of the most important (and often overlooked) members of the family – your pet.

STP Images Photography Studio has a special place for our four legged friends.  We have shot hundreds of Houston’s finest furry friends and we’d love to help by “shooting” yours!

We can photograph in your home, in a favorite public place or in our studio near downtown.  We can photograph your pets as the sole subject or we can incorporate them into your family photos.  We have a ton of experience with pets and know how to get the best photos even when it seems as though they just won’t be still long enough to photograph.

Take a look at a recent photo shoot we did with Meela, a Doberman diagnosed with terminal cancer.  We were able to capture some awesome shots for Meela’s family that will preserve her memory for a lifetime.  Meela’s ‘sister’ Honey participated in the shoot as well and our outdoor actions shots were particularly meaningful for her family.

Take a look at a few of our favorite images from the session.  If you like what you see and you really want to capture your pet’s inner ‘being’, give us a call at STP Images Photography Studio to set up your photo shoot!

Houstonia Burger Bash

Houstonia held its first Burger Bash on June 18, 2015 at the City Centre Plaza.  The event was a ticketed event and sold out well in advance of the event.  Tickets included all the burgers you could eat, all the beverages you could drink and some high octane desserts, too.

The competition between the Burger Bashers was tight.  Burgers were created for the event by Buff Burger, Cyclone Anaya’s, Grub Burger, Harwood Grill, Houston Texans Grille, JerryBuilt, Radio Milano, Sammy’s, Stanton’s, Straits, The Tasking Room, The Capital Grill and there was a veggie burger entry from Cook & Collins.  Drinks were provided by Evamor Artesian Water, Messina Hof Wines and No Label Brewing Co.

STP Images Photography Studio provided the event photography for Houstonia Magazine.  Take a look at a few of our favorites from the event below.  To have STP Images photograph your event, give us call in the studio or shoot us a message.


Headshot Happy Hour

We shoot lots and lots of headshots at STP Images Photography Studio.  We shoot one person at a time at our downtown studio or at our client’s location.  We also shoot dozens or even hundreds of employees at a time in corporate settings.  The end result is always the same – great headshots for both business and personal use.

A while back, we did some special events with a focus on headshots, but it’s been a while.  So, Cori Aston has teamed with STP Images Photography to create a new recurring event called Headshot Happy Hour.  Headshot Happy Hours will be held at Cori Aston’s makeup studio in the Galleria area (1535 West Loop South).  Headshot Happy Hours include wine and hors d’oeurves as well as great music and fun.  Bring your friends and make a party of it during your appointment!

The very first Headshot Happy Hour takes place on Saturday, June 6, 2015 starting at 11am.  Your reservation gets you a full custom makeup session by Cori.  Once the makeup has been completed, STP Images will take a variety of headshots right there on location.  Each person will have headshots taken using a combination of studio lighting and natural lighting.  This will give each client some variety in the headshot choices.

Within a week, each client will have a password protected online gallery set up to allow review of the headshots.  Each client will select their favorite two (2) headshots.  STP Images will then retouch each of the two (2) headshots as requested by each client.  For each of the two (2) headshots chosen, each client receives one (1) web resolution jpg (perfect for Facebook or LinkedIn) and one (1) high resolution, print-ready jpg (for use in print publications such as the Houston Business Journal or Houstonia).

The package price for each person is only $395.00.  This includes wine, food, makeup, headshots, retouching and four (4) final jpg files.  There are ONLY 8 TIME SLOTS AVAILABLE!  Your credit card holds your reservation.  Call us or email us using the info provided on the flier below.  We typically fill these quickly, so don’t delay.  Let us hear from you soon!

Headshot Happy Hour

Headshot Happy Hour

Houstonia held a huge Mint Juleps and Jodhpurs party at the Houstonia House to celebrate the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 2, 2015.  The event was a complete sell-out and the proceeds benefitted the Holly Rose Foundation.  To add to the buzz surrounding the event, a Bravo film crew was on hand in the packed crowd to film segments for an episode of Married To Medicine.  Tons of great food, a Mint Julep competition and a full house of beautiful people dressed for the occasion made for some great photos.

Take a look below at some of our favorites from the party.  To book STP Images for your next event, email us or call us on the studio line to reserve your event on our calendar.


With all of the headshot work we’re shooting, we wanted to remind everyone that we are also experts in event coverage.  STP Images shoots approximately 50 events per year and our clients love our work.  We typically provide between 35 and 50 (depending upon venue and attendance) completely unique images per hour of shooting time.  If the invoice is paid on or before the night of the event, the jpg files are made available to our clients the day following the event.  We also post the jpgs online for guests of the party to view and purchase, if they choose.  See some of our events posted on our proofing website at STP Images Proofs.

Take a look at some of the photos from some recent events we’ve covered.  We would love to help with your event, but our calendar fills quickly.  Call or email today!


Even More Headshots!

What a year 2015 has started out to be!  We are shooting lots of events and some family photo sessions, but we’re really kicking some butt with our headshots.  We have photographed over 200 headshots already since January 1.  I am starting to feel a little carpal tunnel syndrome setting in with all the file processing for all those headshots – but that’s a problem I love to have.

At STP Images, we do individual headshots and corporate headshots.  For individuals, you can come to us or we can come to you.  For corporate headshots, most of our clients prefer us to come onsite, but we can accommodate individuals to come to our studio one at a time.

We have two versions of headshots.  Traditional headshots are photographed with a multiple studio light set-up using a paper or muslin background.  These are typically used for real estate executives, politicians, lawyers and most other conservative business organizations.  Contemporary headshots are our most popular offering, typically using natural light, blurred ‘real’ backgrounds with a focus on the eyes.

Take a look at a few samples from this past month.  If you like what you see and you need new headshots, call us at the studio or send us an email and we can discuss location, style and pricing.  Book now!

Family Photos

The holidays bring different feelings and emotions for all of us.  The anxiety of getting all the shopping done, the stress of planning and preparing the holiday meals, the anticipation of seeing family and friends for the first time in months or years and the joy of time spent with loved ones.  The one common theme in these emotions is ‘family’.

When was the last time YOU had professional family portraits done?  Think about taking some time this holiday season when everyone is together to have us shoot formal family photos or even have us shoot your holiday party with family and friends.  Our calendar fills quickly, but we do have some availability in December.

Take a look at a family portrait session we shot just before the Thanksgiving holiday when everyone gathered to celebrate a birthday.  Four generations in one sitting was as good as it gets.  Call STP Images Photography Studio today to book us.  We want to hear from you soon!
