Why Prom Makes Moms Cry

As she emerges from the fitting room, you see her. Your baby girl. 

But, when did her face stop being so round? And where did those curves come from? Wasn’t it just last week when you went to buy her first bra?  For a moment you hardly recognize this young woman standing in front of you. 

She smiles, lighting up her whole face. You can’t remember the last time she wasn’t miserable, or a bossy brat, but in this moment you see her childhood flash before your eyes. 

Right there, in that fitting room chair, it hits you. 

She’s 5 minutes away from being an adult. 

Then you get a little weepy. 

Maybe it’s the joy of the 4 hour shopping trip coming to a close… or maybe you realize these are the last moments of her childhood and you are cherishing every last one. 

When you book your Prom Session, you get to hold on to these moments forever. It’s part dress up, part glamour shoot (minus the weird soft-filter, ala 1990).  Dressed in that perfect gown, we create portraits to commemorate this stage of life. These sessions are 30 minutes long and include 2 high resolution digital files with print release, plus an online gallery for easy sharing, ordering and downloading.

When should I book my PROM portraits? 

Prom Portraits are usually made in the spring of your junior or senior year, NOT on your actual prom day. You can book your session at any time to save the date and time. 

What are digital files? 

High Resolution digital files come with a print release so that you can reproduce your images at your favorite professional lab, create an album, graduation party invitations or even giant cardboard cut out. You can also upload to your favorite social media site and share with your friends. Don’t forget to tag me!

Where do you shoot? 

Everywhere and anywhere. Have a favorite coffee shop? Prefer an urban vibe? Spend most of your time with your horse? We can work together to create your vision of your portraits. Mini Session are scheduled within a 15 minute radius of Woodstock, CT. 

Is there a deposit and contract?

Yes! A parent or guardian is required to sign a contract and must be submitted with your $50 retainer fee to schedule your date. Your final balance is due 7 days before your session.
