What is a Photo Party?
A photo party is a fun and affordable way to have professional photo shoot while spending time with friends. Guests receive high quality portraits at a reduced rate and hosts earn free and discounted services and/or products.
How does it work?
Hosts interested in having a photo party should contact CMP well in advance to set a party date. We’ll work together to choose a date, time, location, and (optional) theme for your shoot. After we have the details worked out, you’ll contact your friends and family, send out invites, and help collect their non-refundable sitting fee and portrait agreements (digital). We can also invoice via Paypal if this is easier for you.
The day of the party each family or reservation will receive approximately 10-15 minutes of shooting time. You should have (non-messy) snacks or games to keep other guests busy. This is a great time to catch up with friends or just relax and let the kids play.
Photos will typically be loaded to the gallery within one week. Depending on the party package selected, guests will have the option to download their images with print release, order professional prints, or both.
Fun locations include parks, farms, someone’s house, or we can bring an indoor studio to your location as well.
Consider a theme! Boudoir photo parties are a ton of fun with girlfriends to help you feel comfortable in a sometimes awkward situation. Alternatively, set up a photo party in the fall with friends so that everyone gets in photos for their Christmas cards. Your friends will know you have the photos – so you’ll have to be sure to send cards this year!
