Enchanted Experience Sessions | Dickinson Center Child and Family Photographer

 New for 2024 - “Enchanted” Experience Sessions

“Enchanted” – to fill someone with great delight; charm

For those looking for something longer than a Mini session - an "Enchanted" Experience Session might be just what you're looking for!


"Enchanted" Experience Sessions differ from "Enchanted" Mini Sessions in the following ways:

*60 minutes in studio vs. 30 minutes

*Girls get to choose 2 dresses to be photographed in vs. 1 dress

*Gallery of 10 studio images vs. 5

*2-3 composite images created vs. 1

*1 or 2 girls - sisters or besties (the best friend option is not available for "Enchanted" Mini Sessions)

*Sessions can be scheduled on a mini session date in March or April or throughout the year vs. only advertised dates in March and April

*$250 session fee vs. $110 

I'm excited to offer this new option to give clients the option of booking a session to coincide with a special birthday or to be given as a beautiful gift!! 

1 or 2 girls (sisters or besties) | $250 | 10 studio images | 2-3 composite images | 2 dresses | flexible scheduling throughout the year

These are fun, unique, speciality sessions where girls can each choose 2 beautiful dresses from my "Enchanted" Dress Collection (sizes 4-14), add some accessories and feel like a model as I give them posing direction and photograph them throughout the session.  After the session I'll choose 2-3 images to artistically insert into “Enchanted” digital backgrounds to create magical, one of kind composite portraits (see examples below).

My "Enchanted" Dress Collection has doubled in size from last year!  So excited to have added 20 new dresses and 5 additional crowns for all the girls to enjoy!!!  Something new in all sizes and several couture dresses!


To book a session please message me on Facebook or email me at [email protected] with "Enchanted"  Experience session in the subject line.  I'll then contact you and we'll work to find a date that works.  Once we've settled on a date I'll send you a Paypal invoice for the $100 nonrefundable deposit to lock in your session and get you on my calendar.

I can't wait to take some magical portraits of your beautiful girls!

 “Enchanted” Mini Sessions

“Enchanted” – to fill someone with great delight; charm

I can't even describe how exciting it was last year to see the wide eyes of all the girls as they walked into my studio and saw all the beautiful dresses and crowns on display.  It was so magical that I just had to offer these mini sessions again and decided to add an "Enchanted" Experience Session option for longer sessions that can be scheduled throughout the year!!  My "Enchanted" Dress Collection has doubled in size from last year! I'm so excited to have added 20 new dresses and 5 additional crowns!!!  Something new in all sizes and several couture dresses!
 

"Enchanted" mini sessions are fun, speciality sessions where girls can dress up in one of the beautiful dresses from my "Enchanted" Dress Collection (sizes 4-14) (or bring a dress of their own), add some accessories and feel like a model as I give them posing direction throughout the session. 

After the session I choose one image to artistically insert into a magical “Enchanted” digital background to create a one of kind composite portrait (see examples below).
