The Artistry Series 2016 | Classic & Unique Children's Portraits Virginia Beach

The Artistry Series

Capturing the Magic of Childhood

We are continuing our Artistry Series in 2016 with some magical and inspired themes! Our artistry series is a unique and special way to capture your child(ren).  We have a different themed photo session each month of the year - our goal is to create an experience like no other!  Each theme has special props, wardrobe or elements added in post production that illustrate the essence of childhood and help you to always remember the little details.  Please click HERE to see all the themes from 2015 and search our blog for more!

NOW is the time to sign up for the second half of 2016's Artistry Portrait Club.  We only offer the portrait club at two times during the year - and joining the club offers you the chance for more images for less money!  Open enrollment starts now for the August-December sessions and will not be open again until early 2017 for the next round.  If you don't sign up for the club during open enrollment, you have to book each session individually. Here are the descriptions of the next set of Artistry sessions of 2016:

August:  Gone Fishing - We will be sittin' on the dock and floatin' on a raft to create some classic pics of summertime! We may even have a surprise cool treat (you scream, I scream, we all scream for....)  Since August is historically HOT, these sessions will be magically created in our comfy, cool studio.  You won't believe how realistic this set looks in the pictures!  Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and YOUR little one will love to pretend fishing with us!

September: Mad Hatter's Tea Party - Come on, Alice & White Rabbit!!  Join us at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party for some wacky, UN-birthday fun!!  The table will be set and we just need the players. We will have some outfits on hand, but the amazing Carousel & Co will be taking special orders for this session and can create the perfect Alice dress or Mad Hatter outfit for you to take home with you, if you wish!

**BONUS for Portrait Club Members ONLY**  
My BFF - A special session for your child & their Best Friend.  Whether it's your family pet or their best human friend, it's an awesome keepsake to remember their bestie or their fur-friend forever!  A not-to-be-missed event ONLY for our club members!!

October:  Vintage Travels - Come fly with us as we have a vintage-inspired day of travels. Imagine hot air balloons, planes, old fashioned pedal cars, suitcases & more!  Old fashioned doesn't always mean stuffy and boring - this is sure to be a favorite!

November: Enchanted Forest - Back by popular demand, this is a cross between 2015's Woodland Fairy Tale & Fall Fantasy, we are planning a special session with all the dress up clothes your little heart desires.  Always magical and always unique, these are precious & magical portraits.

December:  The Polar Express - That's right, grab your favorite pair of holiday jammies and hop aboard!  We are bringing the iconic story to life this year! Our friends at Carousel & Co will be taking pre-orders for personalized pj's if you want to make this session truly picture perfect!

Two Ways to Book!

You can choose to book an individual Artistry Session any month which includes 5 digital portraits or purchase a membership to our Artistry Portrait Club!  Becoming a member of the portrait club has major perks – not only do you get to come to any (or all!) of the monthly Artistry Sessions with a different theme/set for each one, but you’ll receive 10 digital portraits from each PLUS a bonus Artistry Session that will only be available to Portrait Club members!

The Fine Print: 
*All Artistry Sessions will be held on a weekend - dates will be announced about a month in advance.
*Because of the elaborate sets and props, these are not able to be individually scheduled and there are no reschedules except in the case of inclement weather.  You will get at least one extra session as a club member, so if you are unable to make one, that can serve as the make up session.
*We suggest no more than 3 children during any individual Artistry Session.  These are best for children & babies who can sit up on their own. When siblings are photographed together, individual portraits are not always guaranteed, so just let our photographer know if your priority is siblings together or individuals of children. 
*Sessions are best suited for children 12 months and up - but we can make accommodations for babies during most sessions.
*Artistry Portrait Club fee automatically charged to your credit card each month (must commit to a five month period)

***You can only join the Portrait Club two times during the year - Open Enrollment for the first time in Feb-Mar (for sessions February through July) and the second time in June-July (for sessions held July through Dec).
