Here are some more images from the portrait parties.
Before the holidays I decided to try something new and blogged about Portrait Parties. I am thrilled to let everyone know that portrait parties were a success. I thought I would share some of the beautiful families and children that I had the pleasure to photograph.
I absolutely fell in love with this image and of course had to share. I’m looking forward to our next session. Little baby “O” and I share the same birthday so I feel a special connection to her.
It’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. What a busy end of year 2009 ended up being. I am just finally getting caught up. I have a fabulous contest that I am taking part in that I will be announcing in the next few days. And yes, I’ll finally be announcing the winner of the last contest.
As well, I will be posting some images from some of the sessions that I’ve been so busy with.
To start with I had to share baby “G”. What a little sweetheart.
What is a portrait party?
It is a fun way to get fine art portraits at a fantastic price. You invite your friends and have a great time while everyone takes turns having their children or family photographed.
Where do we have the party?
The party can be held at your home. That means I bring the lights, backdrop and props to your home and set everything up there. You will need to have a closed off area large enough for me to set up my on-location studio. If this is not feasible for you then you are welcome to host your party at my home-studio.
Do you provide the invitations?
An online invite you can email to your guests will be provided by me.
Is there a minimum number of people required?
Yes, you will need to have at least 5 guests not including the hostess.
How long is the session and how many images do we receive?
Each guest is given a ½ hour time slot. Each guest will receive a gallery with 10-15 images for them to choose from.
How many people can we include in the session?
You may include up to 5 people from your immediate family. There is a $10 charge per additional person.
What is a reservation fee?
In order to secure a portrait session at the party each guest will need to pay $30 to reserve the spot. This reservation fee is then converted to a print credit after the session.
What will this cost?
The reservation fee is converted to a print credit so essentially the session is free to your guests. They will also receive 20% off my regular print prices and 10% off canvasses. Special collection pricing is also available exclusively for portrait parties and collections start at $75. The host/hostess of the party will receive a free session and further credits and bonuses.
When do we receive our images?
Within 2 weeks of your portrait party, each guest will receive a link to a password protected private online gallery. The gallery will be available to them for 1 week to choose their images. Once payment is received, orders will be ready within 2-3 weeks.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in and would like more information on what you need to do to host a party then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the studio at 905-882-1459.
And what’s a blog post without a photo. “H” has the most gorgeous eyes.
