Had a wonderful experience, from start to finish. It was amazing. My 4-year-old truly felt like a fairy tale princess. Mindy and her daughter were such an incredible team, made me and my daughter feel comfortable during and after the photo shoot. – Sheena Diplal

FAIRYTALE Limited Edition Children’s Portrait Photography Studio Session:

Does your little girl dream of being a princess or having wings? Why not make her dream come true?! She’ll don a flowing dress and wings, or a poufy princess dress. Maybe she’ll wear Riding Hood’s red cape. She’ll become a part of her favorite storybook fairytale! This portrait session is just for little girls and their vivid imaginations!
A unique experience for a cherished little girl in your life, our portraits are high-end, one-of-a-kind, and always a huge hit with family and friends. We are masters at capturing priceless expressions and memories that will last a lifetime. Capture your little girl’s imagination as she is transformed into a beautiful storybook character right before your eyes! Artwork from this session makes a wonderful gift for mothers, fathers and grandparents.
Costumes/Clothing: The session time allows for your choice of one costume/outfit. If you’d like your child to be photographed in more than one costume/outfit, we invite you to purchase an additional session slot. Although we have a variety of costumes for girls ages 3 through 9, we welcome you to bring your daughter’s favorite. This is her session and we want her to feel like she’s in a fairytale!


These sessions are best suited for little girls between the ages of 3-9. Once the $99 session fee is paid prior to your session date, your time is reserved. If you wish to add siblings or friends, there is an additional $50 for each additional person who wishes to share the 30-minute time slot. You are more than welcome to schedule two back-to-back sessions if you prefer each one to experience the full 30 minutes. This is a much anticipated event, so don’t wait too long to book your special date. Call our office at 571.434.0009 or email the studio at [email protected] if you have questions.

This session is perfect for the parent or grandparent who values one of a kind portraits of their cherished little girl!

There will be minimal props as the dress and nature are really all that is needed.
LIMITED EDITION SESSIONS: Portrait Sessions are always available, but our Limited Edition Sessions, which are themed events, have only a limited number of slots. Once the session slots are filled, the theme is no longer available. Theme sessions are unique and, like all good things, these session time slots won’t last! Call our studio today to book this themed Limited Edition Session and show your family how much they are cherished.


Please contact us here to schedule your session or call the studio at 571.434.0009.


We are thrilled to create a timeless piece of artwork that will last for generations. To be able to create such art, we would love for you to have a great session. By following our guidelines everyone will have an amazing experience.


* Appointments are required – we do not accept walk-ins.
* Session fees must be paid up front to secure your session. If you “no show,” you will have to pay another session fee to reschedule.
* Unfortunately there are NO retakes if your child does not cooperate, so do make sure they have had a nap and are well fed before their session time arrives.
* All sessions begin at the scheduled time — we respect the next client’s time so we are are unable to accommodate late arrivals
* For sessions which involve costumes or clothing changes, please plan to arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled time to allow for clothing/costume changes, checking hair, etc.
* For sessions which do not involve costumes or clothing changes, please plan to arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled time to allow for checking hair, etc.
* If you or your child is not feeling well (even the slightest bit under the weather), please reschedule. We want to keep the studio as germ free as possible.
* Please come prepared with a “clean” snack, especially for the those who might appreciate a little positive reinforcement (aka bribery)! Look for snacks that don’t melt, aren’t sticky and won’t leave messy crumbs.
* We ask that no more than two adults attend the session.
* No cameras including cell phone cameras are allowed in the studio.
* Your images are only available to view on our 72-inch screen for the highest quality. We don’t do online viewing.
* The time set aside for the ordering session is the only time to place your order. All orders take 3 – 6 weeks to be delivered.
* Picking up your orders will be set up by appointment only, or we can ship your order to your home.
* Payment is due the day of your ordering session appointment. A no-interest layaway plan option is available.
* Orders will not be delivered until the order is paid in full.


Costumes/Clothing: The session time allows for your choice of one costume/outfit. If you’d like your child to be photographed in more than one costume/outfit, we invite you to purchase an additional session slot. Although we have a variety of costumes for girls ages 3 through 9, we welcome you to bring your daughter’s favorite. This is her session and we want her to feel like she’s in a fairytale!
* Our Fairytale participants typically don’t wear shoes, so please make sure feet are squeaky clean.
* Avoid wearing socks with tight elastic that leave an impression on the skin.
* If your little one chooses to wear nail and/or toe polish, be sure that it’s not chipped or peeling off the day of your session.
* Check arms and hands for temporary tattoos! (You’d be surprised how many times this comes up.) They should come off easily with a little baby oil.
* Style hair down in a natural style that lends itself to wearing our floral wreath “crowns.” Avoid pony tails and or pig tails because they tend to look bumpy in most situations.
* Pack a comb or brush for a quick touch-up once you arrive.
* If your little one has dry skin, apply a little lotion to smooth it out.
* Bring along chap stick or clear lip gloss to apply at the studio. Dry, chapped lips are not easy to fix post production, but a light application of chap stick or gloss before the session works wonders!
* Blue dresses bring out blue eyes
* Olive skin tones look best in jewel tones
* Dark colors will overwhelm fair-haired lasses


Special products and package pricing will be available with the Limited Edition Sessions, including beautiful Wall Art that would be perfect for your child’s room! Sessions are $99 with a $99 product credit. Each session is 30 minutes, 1 outfit with at least 15 images to choose from. We take great pride in our products and it’s our pleasure to create beautifully and professionally printed artwork for you to enjoy for generations to come. In addition, your image is not just a flimsy piece of paper, it is mounted and coated for durability and protection from fingerprints and the elements. Yes, digital images to share and print are available. Contact the studio for detailed pricing.
We have high-end, professionally designed costumes that fit girls 3 – 9.
We welcome your special costume. But we also provide costumes, wings, props, and accessories for your Fairytale portrait session. If you would like to have your child’s hair/makeup done, please do so before you arrive. Also, make sure to bring a slip/shorts to wear underneath the dresses.
Absolutely! You can bring a costume from home or use one of the ones we provide in the studio.
Does your child want to be a little tinkerbell? We have just the costume for her – light and breezy tulle dresses with matching flower crowns and wings that are just her size.
Do you have a little princess? Our extra pouffy gowns are specially beaded and we even have a matching crown. Just perfect for the girl that is all princess!
Is your daughter a fan of another storybook character? Whether it is your choice of Little Red Riding Hood with her own red velvet cape or Cinderella, in the prettiest tulle dress a Prince has ever seen, one of these two choices will complete your daughter’s storybook fantasy.
Have something different in mind? Feel free to bring an outfit of your choosing!
Sisters look best in coordinating outfits.
At this time, we do not carry costumes for boys.
Of course! Additional children are $50 and will share the 30-minute time slot.
A complete session takes about 30 minutes. If you have multiple children being photographed, they can share the same 30 minute session time for an additional $50 fee. If you want individual images of each, we require a back to back session for each, but will overlap the time so we can photograph some of the images of them together. After we’ve captured your fantasy portraits, we will schedule an ordering session with you (at least one week in the future).
Each 30-minute Limited Edition session costs $99. Regular sessions are $250 so that’s a savings of 60% from a standard session! The $99 fee secures your reservation for the scheduled fantasy session, and allows us to provide the highest quality costumes, props, and our undivided attention to make your fantasy a reality!
No. Two cameras means your child does not know where to look — cameras and/or camera phones are not allowed.
The process is so easy!
* If you plan to use a dress/outfit special to your child, plan to bring it! Or if you’re purchasing a special dress or costume, be sure to order one now so you will have it in time.
* Purchase the session
* Pay the sales tax
* Contact the studio to set the date for your Portrait Session.
* We will also set the date/time for your in-person ordering session held at our studio. Please see above under “WHEN” for the available dates for the ordering sessions for this Limited Edition Portrait Session.
* On the day of your session, please arrive 30 minutes early so you can have time to select and change into the outfit you bring or one we have on hand.
* During the session, we will even give you sneak peeks from our camera to show you how gorgeous the images are!
* During the date/time slot you choose for your Ordering Session, you and your husband – or any decision makers – will come back to the studio for your own personal ordering session to order the products. We will help you compare all of your favorite images. Whether it is wall art or a very special album, we have special event pricing just for this event.
* For this event, Gallery Wraps are the Wall Art product we encourage. The image is printed directly onto high-quality canvas material with the finest ink to ensure that the image looks its best. The canvas print is then stretched around a solid frame, then a UV coating is applied to resist fading and enhance the longevity and rich appearance. Hanging is a breeze and wall bumpers are included to protect surfaces from marks and scratches. These features allow you to have your gallery wraps on display in a matter of moments.
* Our unique albums are an heirloom keepsake for decades to come. An album is perfect for preserving the story of your session and will allow you to relive the moments time and again. While this album does have a minimum of 10 pages, more can be added.
How are Limited Edition sessions different from a regular session?
Well, in addition to the session time being shorter, Limited Edition sessions are typically based on a theme. Each type of session is customized with special props and background. For some Limited Edition sessions, special costumes are available. Limited Edition sessions are also shorter and have specific dates that the portrait and ordering sessions are held.
How often do you offer Limited Edition sessions?
We offer Limited Edition sessions throughout the year. If you subscribe to our e-newsletter or follow Ever After Portraits or mindybelcher on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you’ll be in-the-know for all our upcoming sessions.
How many poses will I get to choose from in a Limited Edition session?
Typically, you will have no less than 20 poses to chose from when it comes to prints and products!
Who can sign up for your Limited Edition sessions?
Typically, we open my Limited Edition up to children, couples, singles and even pets! Sometimes, though, a Limited Edition has a theme where we’re only photographing children or just doing a specific type of image, such as business headshot portraits.
How soon will I be able to order images?
We edit all photos within one week, so that they are available the following week to order.
Because these events are special, and the themes and slots are so much in demand, we are sensitive to timing. Because of that, we set aside specific days during the week during which all orders must be placed. Please see above under “WHEN” for the available date/time slots for the ordering sessions for this Limited Edition Portrait Session.
Can I book two Limited Edition slots in a row?
I would actually recommend booking two different Limited Edition sessions if you have twins or multiples.
What kinds of products do you offer?
After a package is purchased, products can be added on such as mounted wall or gift prints, we wall art in a canvas finish, albums, portrait boxes, desk images, notecards… the list goes on! Check out www.EverAfterPortraits.com for all the goods!
