portrait couture sessions
Portrait couture sessions are an amazing experience, you get to enjoy being pampered with a makeup and photography session in one. We can do these one on one or you can have your sister, mum, daughter or friends join you for a couple of hours of laughter and fun. They are an idea for a special birthday, event in your life or just because. The end result are gorgeous fine art images that will show you how truly beautiful you are xxx
“It was a day to remember working with Kim and her incredible photography skills. I was so happy I was about to do my first photoshoot at the age of 16! The experience was incredible, and I adored dressing up like a princess and feeling so feminine and powerful. It was incredible how many various images we could take with the different backdrops and clothes. Kim knows how to frame her vision via the lens, how to make you look wonderful in every manner possible and how to put you at ease.
Because of Kim’s expertise in photography and miraculous results of the images, I would definitely do it again! I immediately uploaded them to my instagram. Wow, I thought when I viewed the photographs. That’s me?! Kim’s photography captured my inner and outer beauty and confidence in photographs, which is simply stunning to be able to do.”
Who are Couture Sessions for?
Our portrait couture sessions are all about feeling pampered, beautiful and confident. You can do these one on one or have family members or friends join you for a couple of hours of fun. I love doing generation sessions as well xx
What should I wear?
Once people book their session this is our most common question… there are so many options here.
You can have 2-3 different outfits during your session and this can be anything from a white singlet and jeans through to a ballgown.
We will talk through options at our planning appointment to make sure we get the look your are after for your final images. The most important thing is that you are comfortable and loving what you are wearing.
What do your packages include? How much should I expect to Spend?
The experience starts with a $440 session fee. This includes your planning appointment, the photo shoot with Kim Sargent, professional makeup application, professional hair styling, and the in-person design appointment for you to order fine art products.
The collections begin at $1178. Products range from fine art prints, albums and beautiful wall art. All being the finest handcrafted products.
After all is said and done, my clients invest on average $1500 – $4500 for their empowerment experience and products.
When do you have sessions available? How far in advance should I book?
My couture sessions are held on weekdays only. We start with hair and make-up then move through to your photography session, allow up 3.5 hours for your exerience.
Due to limited availability and demand we recommend that if you have a specific date in mind to book 3 months in advance to secure it.
When and how will I select my favourite images from my shoot?
I offer an in-person design appointment where I get to reveal your beautiful images to you, approximately 1-2 weeks after your session. I have a REALLY good system for helping clients decide between images for easy selection, and assisting clients with getting a great variety for albums and the perfect wall art pieces. Because I do show a LOT of amazing images, we navigate the selections process together and I help you choose what you absolutely love from your session. The in-person photo reveal is much anticipated by all my clients and is honestly my favourite part of the whole process!
Will you use my images on you Social media / Website / Blog?
I, of course, would LOVE to use images from our session together to show other women your amazing photos, and more importantly, share your testimony! HOWEVER, I also completely understand if you prefer to keep them private. I will not share any images unless you grant permission. The bottom line is: I will honour whatever level of privacy you would like. Most clients are so proud of their images that they give me full discretion to choose images for my portfolio and social sharing, some clients prefer to choose the images that are posted, and other clients are comfortable with anything being posted, if you are gifting images I can wait to post any images until after they are gifted =) Just let me know where you stand on the topic and I will honour your wishes!
