for your Client Retreats
Your clients' reasons and goals in joining your program are as unique as they are, so documenting a moment of their journey with those goals in mind should be too. I'll spend 20 minutes together 1-1 with each person with intention, photographing in the way they want to see themselves. We'll chat, laugh, have fun tapping into that unique intention while creating a tangible memory (ie. photographs) of that time.
Capture the Feeling
"This experience highlights a sense of empowerment, joy, fearlessness, mindfulness and the unique benefits your program provides for each person."
Build your own unique photo package for your retreat and give your clients an additional experience to remember...
Varies based on location, length of stay, and local costs. Travel fees start at USD $1200 for a single day.
The cost per person photographed begins at $425USD for 20 minutes of individual time, with a maximum of 8 per day. (minimum of 6 total)
Add an image package for clients to each take home 3 individual digital images and the group shot for USD $300 per person.
Add a day before of after the retreat photography for your own full 1-1 photo session, for $500 USD.
What Clients Experience
WE'LL GET THE TECHNICAL STUFF OUT OF THE WAY FIRST: PARTICIPANTS SIGN A SHORT FORM CONSENTING TO THE SESSION THAT INCLUDES THEIR EMAIL TO RECEIVE THEIR GALLERY AND AN OPTIONAL MODEL RELEASE.
I'LL GUIDE THEM IN EVERYTHING FROM POSING TO FACIAL EXPRESSIONS SO THEY CAN FOCUS ON THEIR CHOSEN WORD AND THE EXPERIENCE OF DOCUMENTATION.
IF YOU ADD THE IMAGE PACKAGE, THEY'LL KEEP 3 DIGITAL IMAGES WITH THE OPTION TO PURCHASE MORE, PLUS A GROUP IMAGE AND A POLAROID STYLE PRINT (SAME DAY). GALLERIES WILL BE EMAILED WITHIN 1-2 WEEKS AFTER THE EVENT.
PARTICIPANTS CHOOSE A WORD, INTENTION, PHRASE, OR MOOD THAT REFLECTS THEIR GOALS AND EXPERIENCE DURING THEIR TIME IN YOUR PROGRAM OR AT THE RETREAT. THIS WILL BE THE FOCUS FOR OUR TIME TOGETHER.
NEW YORK CITY
God I love [Mitzie], what an Amazing day! Thank you for everything... how can we do this forever?

NEW YORK CITY
I felt safe.
I've never felt comfortable in front of the camera before, but for the first time, I was.
Are the images of everyone private?
100% yes. The optional model release has no expectation or pressure attached to it. I like to encourage its signing because the more bodies and people we see, the more we normalize diversity. But that's a personal choice and if you choose not to share, that's absolutely ok.
What to wear or bring?
There's no real rules here, but here are my suggestions:
Whatever you wear, I suggest it fit, allow for you to move in it, and that it's something you feel good wearing.
Choose a look that resonates with the intention for the session, something that vibes with the word or phrase, and remember this is about you, not a prop, so I suggest minimal items.
You do not have to go nude or wear lingerie if you don't want to, different things empower different people.
With 20 minutes, we have time for one outfit.
What about Covid?
I'm fully vaccinated and boosted and always test 24 hours before a session or event. I'll have a mask on-hand to wear if you'd be more comfortable with me doing that. No problem.
Does everyone have to participate?
The short answer is no. Everyone has full agency to not be photographed (hence the consent form). I would encourage it though. Stretching your edges in a conscious way is a pathway to growth. Everyone also has agency over what they wear and what gets photographed. Remember, it's less about the image at the end, and more about the experience.
Where do you travel to?
Almost no location is off limits. Have passport, love to travel. Common locations include the continental US, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, UK, Western Europe and more. That being said, the location distance from Boston MA and length of stay varies and the travel fee is based on the number of days, cost of flights, room, and incidentals. The base travel fee is $1200 USD.
