Sample Session Application

sarasota newborn photographer

Like most photographers, I LOVE shopping for new props and creating set ideas for sessions. A super fun way for me to do these creative sessions is by offering them to my valued followers. A themed sample session is perfect for you if you’re happy to allow us to share the photos and behind the scenes from the session, and don’t mind giving us full creative control. While these sessions will be focused on the theme or prop at the time of the event, we still get a super full selection of photos to choose from.

Themed sample sessions are offered at a reduced cost to selected applicants, with exclusive photo options only available for these sessions.

Hair and makeup artistry is not included, but can be added on. Adult applicants must otherwise arrive camera ready. These applications will used to select clients that best fit the criteria for a themed sample session, and we’ll have a quick chat to make sure this session is perfect for you.

I like to offer one indoor and one outdoor creative session per month studio-wide, so this includes applicants from our sister site, as well. If you’re interested, please reach out! I love putting these together, have a whole bunch of new newborn props, maternity gowns and fun themes in mind, and I’d love to create a magical shoot with the right person!

  • Thanks for completing the application. The information provided will be taken into consideration when making a selection
  • Please note: Newborn models must be between 6-14 days old, and will thus be scheduled for the session during this age range ***PLEASE READ THE NEWBORN PREP GUIDE HERE
  • This will be a sample of a normal portrait session, with extra attention given to the chosen theme or prop
  • There is a $500 retainer due upon booking (an invoice will be emailed to you). The retainer reserves your session and my time.
  • For participating in a creative session and signing the model release, you will receive a portrait session either in your home, a location rented by the studio, or other outdoor location, and digital images. Print options will be available for you.
  • Along with the paid retainer and model release noted above, a portrait agreement will need to be signed to book the session
  • I will be in touch right away to go over the details, answer any questions, and confirm your portrait appointment if you are selected

Thank you for your interest!
