What is a Portrait Party?
Portrait Parties are an exciting opportunity for you and your guests to have professional portraits taken in a fun and affordable way in the comfort of someone’s home or location of your choice. You’ll find that this is a low pressure, and relaxed opportunity for professional portraits. Once the party is booked, no additional sales are required to be made at the party, and there are no sitting fees. However, additional packages are available to your guest starting at $10.00.
How Does it Work?
As a host of a Portrait Party you invite a minimum of 10 friends, family members, coworkers, or neighbors to your party. The host will coordinate the session schedule with their guests, and provide the location and other items to make the party what you wish. A clear space of at least 10 x 10 feet is recommended. Drinks and food are at the discretion of the hostess.
Party Host and guests will each receive a portrait session. One background is set up for this event and you come ready to go! You can have just children, family, mom and kids, dad and kids, etc. photographed. The session fee for all guests is complimentary and there is no obligation to place an order.
I’m Ready to Host a Portrait Party!
Once your party is booked, I will come to the location you have arranged to view for setup, discuss the type of portraits you would like to have made and provide you with a packet of information along with invitations to send to your guests.
When Will My Prints Be Ready?
Portraits are made available online for viewing within one week. Orders must be placed by your guests within 5-10 days upon online posting. Hostess orders must be placed within three days after all guest orders are finalized. Prints are delivered to the hostess within two weeks and will deliver packages to her guests.
Hosting a Portrait Party is not only an opportunity to gather with your friends and family, but will allow you to earn free prints!
Your Hostess Package for having a minimum of 10 guests will earn you a special print package including: one 8x10, two 5x7s, and a set of 8 wallets.
If one of your guests books a party within two weeks of your party, you will earn a $20 credit towards future prints. *Family groups count as one guest.
Each family group may only schedule one 20-minute session. We understand that some families may have multiple portrait needs – some pregnancy shots, a couple of family portraits, and individual portraits of their children. They are asked to choose one of the above for portraits taken during the party and are encouraged to schedule a full session with Perfectly Posed to meet their needs.
