Your Bio


Hi there, My name is Samera Abdelbagi, owner of Inspire Me Photography, located in the beautiful city of Austin Tx. Inspire Me Photography focuses on Families, Couples, Seniors, birthdays, Executives, aspiring models, actors and people in the Fashion and Modeling industry. Unlike other Photography Studios though, we offer a wide range of things that correspond with the work we do. Inspire Me will see each client and job through till the very end, offering bound portfolios, promotional posters, a spot on our website and much more. We have served clients in private and commercial industries for 4 years now, having done everything from Portraits to Billboards. We've done full portfolios (headshots ect.) and landed aspiring models and actors in the positions they dreamed of. Let us do the same for you! Photography is our passion, and quality is our business. Inspire Me Photography.

Inspire Me Photography's photo shoots start as low as $150.00 an hour for indoor portraits, and $175.00 an hour for outdoor portraits. All photo shoots come with 3 outfit changes per hour and a fully edited cd. You will also be guided with poses all the way through each Portrait session.
The on location shoot (or outdoor shoot) is recommended because of the diversity and depth it adds to each photo shoot. Having a setting offers character that you might not otherwise pick up on from a plain white backdrop. You may pick a location that means something to you, and if you don't have a location in mind no worries, we've got you covered! at the bottom of the text we have many options for you on hand. The following locations are recommended for occasions such as Romantic couples Portraits, Birthdays, self portraits, Sweet 16 Portraits, Quincenieras portraits, Senior portraits, family portraits, self portraits, fitness images, Graduation portraits, and we can both go on and on..

Portraits are great to have done on many occasions. Especially the occasions that are limited, or are more precious to you for one reason or another such as; family gatherings, a reunion with a soldier, anniversaries, graduations, etc. We also shoot events starting at just $150.00 an hour!

For just $250.00 per person we have an option that offers full hair and make up, done right before your photo shoot! We have our own hair and makeup supplies but you are encouraged to bring your own makeup; Its nice to have, in addition to ours. We ask that you bring your personal foundation, mascara and eyeliner (for sanitary reasons). You also get your choice for indoor or outdoor photos in this package! 

One of our specialties are our modeling portfolios. This consists of 3 separate photo-shoots of an hour and a half each. These are recommended being done at separate locations and on different days (to insure freshness from the model). The first two shoots are location based, and you are treated to full hair and makeup by our makeup artist before the first two shoots. Your third shoot for your Modeling Portfolio is your head shots (Full body, profile view etc.). these are done on a white or black backdrop to avoid any distractions from you and your unique features. 

When you go with our Modeling Portfolio you get your whole Portfolio fully Edited, Printed, and Bound. You will revive a high quality Ready to show off book thats sure to impress your future clients and Business Partners. In addition to your professional book you also get 100 fully personalized Model Comp Cards to mail out to your potential clients. This option is all you need to start or boost your modeling career. Normally priced at $950.00 this is yours for just $650.00! (as a limited time offer)

Location descriptions:
-Murphy Park: Murphy Park is good for its beautiful layout. it's got many great settings such as bridges, lake, green grass complimented with pretty trees, and a plentysome amount of different Birds. (Taylor, TX)
-Hike and Bike: Hike and Bike is an extenuation of Murphy Park, but unlike the other side it has more of a 'in the woods' effect that compliments the photos very nicely. You don't loose your lake, birds, or pretty grass and trees. It also has more attractive bridges. (Taylor, TX)
-Old settlers park: Old settlers park is great for an old time feel, scattered with old cottages and beautiful colony like props. It is also great for valley with trees in the background. It makes for a great historical photo shoot but is diverse enough for a more masculine feel as well. (Address: 3300 Palm Valley Blvd, Round Rock, TX 78665)
-Bull Creek: Bull Creek is my all time favorite location and the one I recommend most. Its got a breath taking view from every direction, plus several amazing backdrops and settings; like a full background of white rock, or on a ledge over looking the water, or even IN the water. Its the best setting for formal photos. (6701 Lakewood Dr
Austin, TX 78758)
-Blue Hole: Blue Hole has the best waterfall that I know of. Its also got a very appealing wooded area to work with. (W. Second Street and Rock Street. Georgetown TX 78626)
-Botanical Gardens: Botanical Gardens is astonishing. We could shoot from sunrise to sunset and not run out jaw dropping scenes. It has everything from amazing waterfalls that you can stand in front of, or behind to rose gardens that will take your breath away. There are streams running intricately throughout the gardens, flowers of course, are Everywhere. This setting is enchanting and perfect for all formal occasions, proms, engagement portraits (etc.). Botanical Gardens is so enchanting that its even a popular place to hold weddings. ($50.00 charge is added to total cost of photo shoot due to Botanical gardens requirements on photo-shoots). (Address: 2220 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78746, phone (512) 477-8672)
