We're so happy you're here!
Meet the Owner
I'm Jennifer Rose, Owner & Lead Photographer of Shades of Rose Photography, LLC. I am a local, natural light photographer that serves Austin, TX & surrounding areas. I specialize in business & branding sessions and outdoor portrait photography.
My goal is to work with you from Day 1 to learn about you and what you are envisioning. They say a picture says 1,000 words, so let's make them count! Whether you are a small business, newly engaged, at the onset of motherhood, watching a little one grow up too fast, or just spending a day outside in the sun, I want to be there to help you remember this important time in your life and get your story told.
Let's start capturing your story right now!
When you book with Shades of Rose Photography, you are booking an entire experience, not just an end result!
From the moment you decide to hit "submit" on that inquiry form....
We are genuinely excited to learn more about you and see how we can capture what you have in mind. We don't just show up & take photos, we take the time to learn about everything you are envisioning to ensure that we cater the session completely to your needs. We encourage you to set up a complimentary zoom call before booking to make sure we are the right fit for you! This call is also great if you'd like to customize any of the packages offered. Everything is fully customizable, and we are happy to build on or to take away from any package to suit your needs.
You will receive our complimentary guides on how to prepare for your session & how to coordinate your outfits (if applicable). We will then be with you every step of the way for any questions you have. We answer all emails, texts, calls, and social media messages within 24 hours, and that's our promise to you! You can even text us some outfit photos if you just can't decide between them and need a gal pal's opinion!
On the day of your session....
You can expect a photographer who will show up with all of the essentials, just in case! We bring an "emergency" kit to all of our sessions with items such as bug spray, wipes, tissues, band-aids, safety pins, a tide stick, bobby pins, and more! You can use these items at any time - what's ours is yours! You don't have to stress at all.
At the end of your session....
Everyone is offered some well-deserved water & treats (adults too!)
After your session....
We'll send a sneak peek a few days after your session and your gallery within 2 weeks. All gallery photos include basic editing (exposure, highlights, shadows, contrast, color, and toning), and you can request retouching on your final selections (teeth whitening, blemish removal, bruise removal, skin softening, or cropping) for no additional cost.
*Premium editing is also available for an additional fee; info can be found in the a la carte section of our portrait page.
Most of our clients stay in touch with us via social media throughout the year, we hope you will too!
We'd love to be a permanent add-on to your family or business =)
We are natural light photographers
What is natural light photography?
So glad you asked! A natural light photographer is one who is trained to use natural primary light (the sun) and natural secondary light (open sky, reflectors on the ground, etc.) to light up your faces in the most flattering way possible! This means that we do not often carry around artificial lighting equipment (flash equipment) to our outdoor portrait sessions. We only use flash when it is absolutely necessary, such as if we are shooting at night, shooting products, shooting at your indoor business location, or if we are doing your headshots at our brand new in-home studio!
When choosing your session location, we will work with you to ensure that we are shooting in the best possible conditions.
We are true to life photographers
What is a true to life photographer?
True to life just means that we do not typically add filters or photoshop our images. We focus on telling your real story, whatever it may be! We photograph in real color and aim for bright & true to color images. We will photoshop your images by request, and we do have a team of editors who make any changes you can dream of to your photo (for a small fee), but truth be told, it is just not our style! We want your entire experience from beginning to end to feel authentic.
We are here for you!
That's right - YOU are our number 1 priority!
We know what it means to be served well (the owner actually worked at Disney World in a past life!) We pride ourselves on our customer service, and hope to give you the absolute BEST experience possible. If you have any suggestions, requests, feedback, or anything to share at all, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at
