It’s that time of year again, time for your family to grab a spot in The Christmas Experience. We are offering the White box sessions with a Christmas theme this year (non Christmas themes are not permitted at this event) and YES this is a family friendly event (note our Christmas bed series coming next is KIDS ONLY).
Q: How does it work?
This is one single, large white box that we shoot and stitch together into a collage using Kirsten’s skills as a photoshop editor and storyteller. Sessions can be planned to have boxes interact with each other, various collages made from one single session and interactive content created (for example the 3D snowball effect shown above.
COMING SOON: Getting on TOP of the box is in the works. Tests coming soon.
Q: How do we prepare?
Kirsten will send you a comprehensive preparation document for this event. Unlike regular environments the white box loves bright colours so coming in all black is not as effective as using colour to your advantage.
Handy hint: If dressing the kids in the same style PJs differentiate them with different styled slippers, cosy socks, head bands and more. This makes knowing WHO is WHO a little easier and gives the composition more OOOMPH.
Q: After the photos are taken what happens next?
We create a collage for you and invite you in to “tweak” the collage and pick your “solo faves” in the studio. The “reveal the experience” session is designed to get time sensitive decisions made at a very busy time of year for the studio.
At this session you are also invited to purchase from our large range of products which we ALSO will have on display for you to touch and feel at the session. Deadlines for Christmas delivery are tight so orders are made to ensure you have your products in time for your holiday celebrations.
Q: What kind of products are recommended for The Christmas Experience – White Box Seasonal?
White box sessions need to be printed at at least 16×20 to ensure the faces are visible so this is our minimum size recommendation for printing the sessions on mediums such as archival prints ($99+HST), flush-mounts ($239+HST) and canvas ($359+HST).
We also recommend our Accordion 3×3 books (which come in sets of three of the same design) as their square shape lends a fun way to showcase the “solo” shots from your session. Each comes with a translucent cover and are magnetically closed for safe keeping in your purse or bag; they can also live on the fridge.
We also have a great 4×4 cube product (6 sides) which we love for showcasing the solos in a really creative product ($199+HST).
We cannot wait to capture the experience for you this year.
