WHAT IS IT?
“What is a Portrait Production?” Glad you asked! This is an entire experience designed to tell your story – whatever story you want to tell. Reveal your alter ego, take a day for make-believe, dress up like you have always wanted, and have it documented with professional photography. As the name implies, these styled shoots are “productions” staged just for you. They can be as simple or elaborate as you wish, but every session will include clothing, accessories, props, professional makeup application and hairstyling designed just for you.
Portrait productions are perfect to mark milestones: birthdays, graduations, life celebrations; but, why wait for your birthday? How would you like to dress up and feel beautiful just because you can? Great! Let’s do it! You can also get together with your peeps for a “little black dress” party and well, make it a party.
Prior to your session, we will have an in-depth consultation to discuss the concept that you would like to explore. Not sure? Let’s chat and we will develop an idea together. Please bring any clothing, accessories, props of your own that you would like to use as well as inspiration photos of your dream photography session. Between your wardrobe and our stylist’s closet, we will be able to put together the perfect look.
On your session day, prepare to be pampered. Your session will easily last five hours by the time you have had your makeup applied, hair done, clothing donned and if we are going on-location – travel time. Actual shooting time will be approximately two hours depending on how elaborate your session is. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided.
Drum roll please… your photos will be revealed at a private viewing session at KDG Photography Studio approximately two weeks after your session. The appointment will be scheduled during your consultation session. During your reveal, you will see your photos come to life on a big monitor, and choose your product options. Note that the reveal is your time to order so you are welcome to bring your significant other or companion to help you choose. The person responsible for the purchases should also be present.
Portrait Productions start at $500 which includes the pre-consultation, professional hair and makeup, production stylist, photography session, image file post-production and the reveal session. Photographic keepsakes including framed wall art, boxed matted prints and albums are sold separately.
A $50 retainer, due at the time of booking your consultation, is credited towards your session fee. The remaining fee is due at the consultation Session. You will receive a 10% discount on products that are ordered and paid for during the consultation session, however you will be free to order from a selection of beautiful photographic artwork during your reveal.
