Themed Sample Session Application


Like most photographers, I LOVE shopping for new props and creating set ideas for sessions. A super fun way for me to do these creative sessions is by offering them to my valued followers. A themed sample session is perfect for you if you’re happy to allow us to share the photos and behind the scenes from the session, and don’t mind giving us full creative control. While these sessions will be focused on the theme or prop at the time of the event, we still get a super full selection of photos to choose from.

Themed sample sessions are offered at a reduced cost to selected applicants, with exclusive photo options only available for these sessions. Selected applicants can choose from a 12 image digital gallery, can upgrade to an album, and will have the option to upgrade the album for more images. This pricing structure is not available for full signature sessions (a comparison is shown below). As with all sessions, clients will select their favorite photos during an in-person gallery viewing right after the session.

Hair and makeup artistry is not included, but can be added on. These applications will used to select clients that best fit the criteria for a themed sample session, and we’ll have a quick chat to make sure this session is perfect for you. The client closet will be always be available for use as well.

I like to offer one indoor and one outdoor creative session per month studio-wide, so this includes newborn and maternity participants, too! If you’re interested, please reach out! I love putting these together and have a ton of fun themes in mind I’d love to create with the right person!

  • Thanks for completing the application. The information provided will be taken into consideration when making a selection
  • This will be a sample of a regular portrait session, with extra attention given to the chosen concept or theme, prop, or wardrobe styling
  • There is a $400 retainer due upon booking (an invoice will be emailed to you). The retainer reserves your session and my time. It will be applied to your photo collection balance.
  • For participating in these creative sessions and signing the model release, you will receive a portrait session either in your home, a location rented by the studio, or other outdoor location, offered for a reduced total minimum cost of $1150, plus upgrades if desired. (the regular minimum between the retainer and the base a la carte album is $2250 for a full signature session, and digital images are not available at this starting price point)
  • Along with the paid retainer and model release noted above, a portrait agreement will need to be signed to book the session
  • I will be in touch right away to go over the details, answer any questions, and confirm your portrait appointment if you are selected

Thank you so much for your interest!
