Portrait Parties

Love our mini-session events? Wish you didn’t have to wait for them? Now you can host your own! Portrait Parties are the perfect solution for you and your friends to have professional portraits that are affordable…and fun!

What is a Portrait Party?

A Portrait Party is an event hosted at a specific location such as a local park, a flowered covered field, or your own home where Mia Bella Photography will take professional portraits for you and your guests. Portrait Parties are perfect for play groups, church groups or even family reunions. 

Portrait Parties are great option for people who:

  • Want professional portraits but don't need a full session.

  • Have always wanted to try one of Mia Bella’s “stylized mini-sessions” events.

  • Want to host a get-together with friends and family that is unique and memorable.

How do Portrait Parties work?

First, the hostess selects a theme for the event. The ideas are endless! Mia Bella Photography will coordinate with the hostess to discuss the location, props and backgrounds. The hostess provides the location, the guest list, and schedules the sessions in 15 minute increments.

Each guest pays a reduced rate of $100 for their 15 minute session and receives:

  • Online Viewing Gallery

  • 1 high-resolution digital file of their favorite image {$100 Value}

  • 8x10 Print {$40 Value}

  • $50 Print Credit {To be used on a future session with Mia Bella Photography}

Approximately two weeks after the party, each guest will receive an invitation to view their online gallery so they may select the products included with their party package. Guests may also order additional products from their gallery if they desire. Galleries will be available for four days. After all of the orders are placed, the hostess will receive her party credit to place her own order based on her guests' purchases.

How do I schedule a Portrait Party?

Simple! Just click on the “Book Us” tab to schedule your party. We will help you step by step through the planning process to ensure your party runs smoothly!

What are my responsibilities as a Portrait Party hostess?

Hostesses invite 6-15 guests and organize the session schedule. Remember each guest receives a 15 minute portrait session so keep the guest list intimate and do not schedule more than 15 guests. We require at least 4 paid guests to commit to your party. Creating an event on Facebook or using evites is a great way to get the word out. A link will be provided for your guests to pay for their session online. Some hostesses like to provide snacks and activities for their guests to enjoy while they wait for their turn to be photographed, however, guests do not need to stay for the entire party. 

Do I receive incentives if I host a Portrait Party?

Absolutely! The best benefit of hosting your own party is to build enough credits to earn your portrait products. It's a great way to get precious and gorgeous memories of your family in larger pieces that you might not normally purchase {like large canvas prints}. 

Hostesses receive the same benefits as their guests at no charge PLUS 

  • $40 print credit for each paid guest {10 guests = $400 credit} 

  • Digital image for each paid guest{10 guests = 10 digital images}
