$45.00+HST for a half hour session which includes 8-10 poses, and one 8″x10″ print.
The Enchanted Forest Fairy Portrait sessions are especially crafted to appeal to the imagination of 3 to 8 year old girls and provide you with a wonderful, stress-free experience and some amazingly magical images that will be treasured by your family for generations.
The enchanted forest set is quite elaborate and is only set up for a few weekends per year. The next session will be June 3-5, 2016.

The session fee must be paid at time of booking to reserve your time slot. Payment may be made by cash, cheque, email e-transfer, or credit card. Credit card payments may be made over the phone.
On the day of your session please plan to arrive at the studio a few minutes before your time slot. There is a waiting room.
A parent or adult guardian must remain with the child for the entire session.
The first 10 minutes of your session will be used to get to know your little fairy princess and fit her with her skirt, wings and crown. A dressing room is provided, however the skirt is designed to slip on over top of shorts. Your daughter should be wearing short, tight fitting shorts and a plain white top (preferably sleeveless). Please note that the shirt she is wearing will be completely visible in the portraits and any part of shorts reaching the knees will be visible as well.
We recommend that you bring a brush for her hair.
Make-up is not necessary and minor blemishes and scratches can be removed using Photoshop.
For the next 20 minutes parents can relax on a comfy leather couch right beside the set.
A monitor screen will be set up so that you can see the images as they are being captured. Please note that these are preview images only; much of the ‘magic’ in the final images takes place during post processing after the session.
I will take each fairy through a series of 8 to 10 poses using a variety of props. During the session we request that you not try to direct your daughter. The photographer has 27 years experience working with children and has many tricks and techniques to create special images for you. It is very difficult to accomplish this if the child is receiving conflicting directions from multiple people.
After the session, before you leave the studio we will set up an appointment for you to come back to the studio to view the images and pick out which one you want for your 8”x10” print. We will show you some of the other products available and send you home with a product guide and price list. We want you to see your images as soon as possible, but it can take up to two weeks to get all the images from a fairy weekend processed, polished, and ready to show.
During the ordering appointment you will be shown all the usable images, and be guided through the process of selecting your favourites. A valuable part of the service we offer is helping you decide which images you like best and figuring out the best way to display them in your home. This service is explained on the Photo Decor page of this website.
All printing, framing, and product creation is accomplished right at the studio and is usually ready for pick-up within two weeks.
