We get it though. It actually made us think we could offer such sessions at an incredible price for early birds.
There’s a lot of details you’ll find below but the set way to put this is like this; If you never shot with us before and booked two of our classic seamless based specials you’d be talking about a $250 session that included makeup and hair, several hundred photos and 4 edits of your choice (along with ALL the images and YOUR CHOICE of custom edits). If you then shot with us again with a similar session you would get a $25 repeat client discount so your price for that would be $225. You’d have spent $475 for two unique makeup and hair stylings and a total of 8 edited images.
OK, got that?
So, our Christmas in August Calendar promotion includes this:
- Weekday Session with 2 completely different makeup and hair applications PLUS a hair change for what most people would see as a 3rd styling treatment
- 12 total edited images (4 more than those 2 sessions above)
- Layout and design of a custom 2017 calendar with 26 pages, this is 12 months, 12 image panels for each month, cover, back cover depicting each month in a collage as well as a centerfold image at about 11″ x 17″ in size
- One of those very calendars delivered straight to your door
Price on the Christmas in August Calendar Special? $600 or $575 if you’ve shot with us before. Put a $100 deposit on a shoot by 8/15 and take an additional $25 off. Calendar sessions are being added to our price list at $800 year-round so this offer is at a significant savings as compared to later in the season
For clients who have already shot with us more than once in the past who may have several other images they would love to include in their calendars (it makes sense no?) You can use up to 4 other images you’ve shot with us and take $10 off the price per image used.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!
We are also including use of our classic aluminum Christmas tree and newly acquired Giant Valentine’s Box so these 2 holidays will be well represented in your 2017 calendar. To keep this in perspective our classic tree shoot is offered ahead of the holiday season at $250 itself. The heart will be a similar price. You could think of this as adding these two classic themes to your portfolio and getting an entire calendar thrown in for free!
These sessions will take a minimum of 4 hours in studio and as a result we are ver limited in the number of sessions we can offer. Currently our July calendar is over 50% filled so don’t wait. There’s only a handful of dates available.
Want to add more variety to your calendar? We can add in some natural light boudoir for just an additional $50. Want even more varied makeup and hair? If you had the time additional looks are just $75 each. Want a deluxe layout with additional images included with the dates page? (See samples below) I can do that too, just ask!
Below are some of the calendars I produced for 2016.
With regards to the custom layout and design, there is no shortage of places you could simply upload photos and have a calendar made but what this session includes is a custom layout unique to you. With your name, possibly autograph or in the case of renown model & burlesque star Ludella Hahn did your kiss imprint added to the graphics. Incidentally Ludella sought me out specifically to design her official 2016 calendar.
Below is the Valentine Box I just added to the studio prop collection. This photo of Miss V was by Relentless Photography used with permission. V’s makeup and Hair was by Nicole of Making Faces Professional.
