Dream Session Creative Retainer Fee: $500
The creative retainer fee, due when booking, reserves Stephanie’s time and talent to capture images. This fee does not include any prints or products and does not go towards any collections. This is non refundable, but it is partially transferrable to use for another session or another family. The package fee is the week before the session.
HOW IT WORKS
Before the shoot
Let’s plan it! What is your vision? What are the results we are hoping for? We will plan what to wear, location, and look and feel of the session during your pre-consultation. This meeting can take place in person or over email/phone! Tell me about your vision and I’ll make it happen! Don’t have a vision, just know you want something special for your wall? No problem, I have plenty of ideas! You are welcome to choose from something I have already done altered to your style and personality or let me dream up something new for you!
We will also discuss and plan how you are wanting opt present these images. One large wall print? A collage? This is important as it will guide how we shoot the session!
Does your daughter love Princesses? Is your daughters room a Disney Princess theme? I’ll bring the gorgeous Princess dresses and props and lets decorate her room with pictures of her as her favorite Princess! Is she a rock star that can play a mean riff on the axe? Into sports? An amazing dancer? I got that covered too!
At the shoot
I’ll present you with the best options for location based on our pre-session consultation. I’ll bring the perfect outfit(s) and in some cases makeup artist. We will have fun pampering your little princess and dressing her in amazing boutique dresses. Some session may take 2 meetings to get that perfect shot with the perfect light.
After the Shoot
You will come by for a visit and we will sort through the images and make final decisions on what will look best with your décor wither it be one large image or a beautiful wooden collage!
Is my child right for this?
Children who love the camera, those who love to pretend and those who love to dress up will be fabulous for these sessions! It is important that they be able to follow directions as much as a young child can (I know the age). Children who do not want to be there probably shouldn’t!
Children age 4 and up will be best for this but younger girls are also welcome as long as parents understand their limitations.
Why are there less photos in this package but it’s twice as expensive?
We are shooting with a very specific goal in mind. There won’t be time for lots of “fluff” while we are focusing on THE perfect shot that will be displayed large in your home. I will be providing high end gowns, clothing and accessories styled by me. These images take much longer for me to edit as well. And don’t forget the large wall print that comes along with this! Some of these props are not available to regular sessions
What about boys?
These are not for boys at this time. We can usually accomplish what we need during a regular session.
Can mom and dad be in pictures too?
While this is not a family session, we can snap one or two quick family pictures after we have accomplished our goal.
Is this for more than 1 child?
Multiple children are fine. Additional cost may arise based on our clothing choices.
