Portrait parties are a fun opportunity to have beautiful portraits of your children, other family members, friends or coworkers! The event takes place at your home, or another location of your choice where everyone is comfortable and natural. (Parks, Playgrounds, Parties ect.) It is just like those jewelry, Tupperware, or make-up parties except instead of us talking you into buying the latest moisturizer we are taking pictures! It’s fun and affordable for all. What do I need to do?Just invite a minimum of five friends, family, or neighbors over and have a clear space to set up the portable studio. Add some snacks and drinks, and then get ready for some fun! Portrait parties are the perfect addition to any party, meeting, or family function.

1. Make Your Party FUN!
Invite lots of Friends….Think of people outside of your immediate circle. Invite more people than you think will come. The minimum number of guests is five, so invite extra!
2. Talk it Up….
Excited Hostesses build more anticipation for their guests. Everyone can’t wait to have a good time!
3. Give out lots of Oohhs and Aahhs….
Call your guests as soon as you know the proofs are online. Tell them how great the portraits are and which numbers are your favorites.
Remind your guests of upcoming holidays or events that they may want to purchase gifts for, such as Mother’s/Father’s Day, Grandparents’ birthdays, etc.Remind them of the various products available to them, such as collages, books, slideshows, custom birth announcements, and greeting cards.
5. Create a Buzz…
Share the online images with those
who weren’t able to make it to the Party and anyone else you choose. Tell guests to show their images to people they work with, post a few on Facebook, or email the link to friends and relatives out of town. The more people are talking about the beautiful images, the better the sales and Hostess credits will be.
6. Call Guests the Night Before Orders are Due
Keep the excitement high by asking which images are their favorites, what their friends and family thought of the images, what they are planning on purchasing...you can help them in making their decisions if they are having difficulty making their purchases. And remind them the photographer accepts credit cards.
While I encourage a theme it is not an absolute requirement. Here are some suggestions to help you decide:
