Understanding the Needs of Professional Sports Families.
I am a first and foremost a woman, a wife and a mother. I understand carving out time from our busy schedules is no easy task; particularly, when one of the family members spends a majority of their time on the road away from home. Your schedule is my priority. I do my very best to accommodate road and off-season schedules. I travel nationwide and to Canada. All travel expense are built into my packages. I create archival, high quality portraits for your wall and box collections you may hand down to your children one day as a legacy. Every package includes a printed element and digital copies of selected images.
Custom Services Provided with Every Session
If there is one thing I have realized over my career, it is no two family’s needs are the same. We all want to live the best life we can live and to hand down a legacy to those we love the most. With this in mind, every session is designed with your unique needs in mind. I am committed to creating an amazing experience customized to your unique needs. I have a team that travels with me to provide professional hair and makeup. I have a relationship with vendors and designers to provide wardrobe styling assistance. In many situations the wardrobe is provided by our design team. You as the client are able to walk in on the day of your session in sweat pants and no makeup then walk out ready for a night on the town.
In the world of professional sports where your life is so public, we offer you a slice of privacy. Every portrait session is accompanied by a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). The only images posted to social media are the images you authorize. Your personal moments are not shared unless you authorize it in writing and only the images you select will be displayed. If you request and NDA, your images WILL NOT be posted on social media or my website by Kristie Montrois Portraits or my staff. Those images are only posted by you to your own account and tagging is optional. Your images are never used in marketing for our studio, unless you authorize it. I typically do not use your images for marketing, because your lives are already so public and I want to offer you some autonomy in your home life. I believe in creating trust and connections for you as a family for years to come.
Our staff also signs an NDA when with us when working with you as the client and are forbidden to disclose information under contract.
Studio and Travel Accommodations.
In addition to a studio location in Cottonwood Heights, Utah, I have travel built into my packages when it is required. I have scheduled travel dates to various destinations throughout the year to accommodate both in season and off season needs. We are available for travel Nationwide and Canada. I understand athletes have road schedules that make it difficult at times to make space for the simplest of pleasures. For this reason, I consider your availability to based on both your season and off-season schedule. What is best for you is best for me. We will make it happen together, I promise.
In most situations, I attempt to schedule your session around your off-season calendar. This is sometimes difficult for families whose teams are entering the playoffs. When this happens, I do make accommodations for those families where I can.

All sessions include a pre-session consultation, travel/accommodations for my team anywhere within the United States or Canada, professional hair and makeup, wardrobe styling, a custom portrait session, lunch and light refreshments, an in-person or Skype reveal ordering appointment, and a mounted 16 x 20 wall portrait and digital images.
