I believe this is such a wonderful time of your life and I want to show every teenager they are unique in their own special way. I know at times it's a tough road out there for teens, I know that confidence can be a big issue at this time of your life, I also know that there is a false perception of what we should be – my goal is to change that.
I want to showcase the real teen, the modern teen, today's teen!
Teen portraits do just that, capturing you in that moment of youth, freezing that moment forever...showing you what the world sees in you.
What to expect...
Here is where you confirm your booking by paying your session fee, which includes your mini makeover [for the girls!]
Now is the time to start thinking about how you would like to be photographed! How you would like your hair and makeup, what to wear... accessories... I am here to help you decide all of this and answer any questions you may have about your photo shoot.
On the day we will meet at the agreed time and location and get started making memories! This should be a fun and special event and will result in keepsakes for the rest of your life. I understand how important your investment is and I ensure that we will make the most of our time together. Before your shoot, I have a professional hair and makeup artist come to work with you to create the look you want. After this, your shoot will take around 1 - 1.5 hours, with up to 3 outfit changes should you wish. The girls I have photographed are everyday teens like you, I will guide you with poses and expressions and help you feel comfortable.
There is no obligation to buy. My investment packages give you the freedom to choose how many images you would like, framed gallery walls, or purchase individual prints.
Everything purchased comes with the matching digital file.
I will upload a private gallery available for 7 days for you to browse your images and choose your favourites. I am just an email or phone call away to answer any questions you may have regarding your images.
I understand that everyone has different budgets, therefore I have the option of paying in instalments – this is something we can chat about and arrange to suit. You will have the confidence and piece of mind knowing exactly what you are purchasing.
PORTRAIT SESSION FEE
INCLUDES YOUR MINI MAKEOVER
I offer the flexibility of purchasing individual prints or the entire collection.
Individual 11x14 inch matted prints are $180 each and you will receive the matching digital image.
The entire collection of digital images can be purchased for $750
With this, you will also receive your favourite 3 images as a matted 11x14 inch print all ready for you to select your favourite frame to pop them in.
Once payment is received these will be available to download via your client gallery and I will prepare your matted prints and get them in the post to you.
Once you have purchased your images I will create a shopping cart for your gallery where you can purchase top-quality prints at wholesale price - I do recommend if you are going to purchase prints and frames for your wall this is the place to do it as you will be getting the best quality.
Payment plans are avaliable - please as for this option.
Imagine having that confidence where you believe in yourself, that is exactly what a Teen experience will offer. Through your photos I will help build self-esteem, confidence and self-worth, creating a positive experience that will be treasured forever as part of your life story.
Every teen has a story... Every teen has their own unique personality... Every teen is worth it.
What people are saying
This is the best way to describe our experience with Stacey!! It was more inviting than what Shanice had ever expected, Shanice was apprehensive about getting her photos taken as her self confidence is not great. From the moment we arrived Stacey was relaxed, inviting and very professional! The photos that Stacey captured of Shanice left me speechless as she had brought out a confidence in Shanice that was priceless!! At the end of the day Shanice made several comments about how the day was not what she expected…..but so much more as it was a lot of fun and that Stacey was such a lovely person, so easy to listen to, and that she loved how Stacey gave her lots of advice and direction for the poses! I highly recommend this awesome experience to other teen girls out there that want to see aside of themselves they didn’t know they had!!
Thanks Stacey!! xx
