Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many clothing changes should I bring?  Usually, 1-3 is a good number
  • How much retouching is “standard”?  Blemishes, stray hairs, wrinkle reduction, and gentle “nips/tucks” are standard
  • Will my face look over-retouched? No, our process smooths out the completion while keeping a natural look.
  • Can we have a consultation before the appointment? Absolutely, call/text 636-947-5956 to set it up.
  • Will I receive digital files? Yes, for each pose you select, you will receive both a high-resolution file and a web version
  • Define my “usage rights” for the digital files.  You may use the images on the web, any digital display, as well as printing up to 12-inches
  • Can I print larger, like on a billboard or vehicle wrap?  Yes, that requires an additional usage rights fee, and it is available

Getting to the Studio

K Thaemert Photography

The portrait studio is located on the Highway 94 outer road.  From either direction on 94/364, exit at Jungermann.  Drive south on the outer road.  When you see Pizza Hut, put on your right blinker.  You can either turn in at the Pizza Hut entrance to the parking lot, or come down to the Meinecke Car entrance and backtrack just slightly.  We are directly next to Misty Nights Bar.
