Those of you who follow me regularly know each year I do a 30 women in 30 days photography project. I have an amazing one planned for this year.
For those who don't know what it is: It's 30 women who all come in for a photo session with the same theme within 30 days. First year was glamour, last year was water themed, and this year is ..........
It's to promote women's portraiture and self appreciation through photos. It's fun but also serves a purpose. Each woman has the same theme but all the images look completely different & uniquely beautiful as the women in them.
Yes, it costs you money for the session, but you get to be a part of something kinda cool and at a price that's more affordable if I wasn't doing 30 of them. So, if you say it's your project, I shouldn't have to pay, then stop reading now & just go away, lol. For those who are interested, it's going to super cool this time. I have found an amazing artist who is going to work with me to plan these out and make sure that each one works with your body shape, style, and personality.
I put the same effort into these as I would any session, the same time, the same amount of edits, everything. And because of the planning & details on these, it's actually more than a standard session. The price is a steal compared to scheduling this as a regular session. So, no negotiations on pricing.
Yep, it can be something super simple or we can go nuts with a more elaborate design and theme.
Because they will all be done in September I don't have any of the images to show you, but can show you some examples of what we have in mind. These are NOT my photos, just examples of the styles we are tossing around.
I will take the time to talk to you & plan it all out with you in mind. You can give us creative freedom too & let us create something perfect for you also.
We can go crazy on details or keep it simple. And if you aren't the body paint type, we will use organic elements instead (flowers, etc).
I'd like to keep it pretty feminine as far as the style. My make-up artist is super skilled at the gore and that sort of thing, but that's for another session, not these.
Here's how it works:
#1 You book the session. The spots are on a first come first serve basis and must be paid immediately through online booking or payment brought in to the shop. No post dated checks, no I'll pay next Tuesday. If you want a session, you must pay now. I've had too many held spots lately & payments that didn't ever arrive so it's got to be pay or no date. All dates will be in the month of September.
#2 We plan it out. We discuss what you have in mind: indoors or outside, style, body type, how you want the images to look, outfits, everything. Be involved! The more you invest in planning it the better your images will be. This is your chance to really get some amazing and unique images. And the sky's the limit, it can be a sexy boudoir shoot, outdoor floral, just about anything that fits within the theme.
#3 We shoot it!!! This is the fun part. I'll walk you through all the posing. Depending on what we come up with it could last an hour or several.
#4 You view your images. We schedule you to return to the studio in October to view & order your images. You may take only the offer that comes with the session or order additional images and products at the appointment.
Your session for these is a base cost AND the make-up artist. Please be aware of that upfront. You will pre-pay the session and based on what you chose, you will be paying the make-up artist the day of the session. Your make-up can be anywhere from $25 to over $200 depending on how elaborate you want to get with your session. You will get that amount in the planning so there will be no surprises, but be aware, these are not your standard make-up applications (which by the way, price them anywhere, it's $60 minimum for just standard make-up).
Outfits are your cost & will not be provided.
If you want extensive props, those will also be your cost.
The session fee for these sessions will be $129.99 and will include the planning, session, editing of images, in-person viewing appointment, cost of any small props, and 3 high resolution digital files of your choice to do with as you wish. (a print release is given) This is due to reserve your spot.
Your make-up payment is due in full the day of the session. No payment, no session, so plan ahead & have it ready.
If you want additional images, prints or an album they will be available to order at your viewing appointment.
There will also be a pre-pay discount to grab more when booking your session, so take advantage of that.
I'm super excited about these and I hope you are too. Any body types, ages, etc are welcome. We will work with you to make sure what we pick fits you perfectly.
