Fairytale Portraits in Northern VA it's cold and dreary outside...but hopefully this will bring you a warm smile!

I have posted info about my 'Fairytale Fusions' in prior entries where i take portraits i have made and blend them with a bit of whimsy. Previously my Fairytale Fusions were only available to my clients and only on portraits i photographed.
New for 2009, i am now accepting commissions from the 'general public' as well as other photographers. Now YOUR photographs can be transformed!
As you can imagine, Fairytale Fusions are quite labor intensive and close attention is paid to every teeny tiny detail. No two are ever exactly the same.
In order for a Fairytale Fusion to 'work' there are some requirements that need to be met with the photographs i use. The higher the quality of the photographs, the better the results. Not all photographs are appropriate candidates. I review each photo submitted and return a proposal which includes what my vision might be for your photograph.
Each Fairytale Fusion is priced on a case-by-case basis and an estimate will be included with your proposal.
I am only able to take a limited amount of Fairytale Fusions from 'non' clients at this time so you are encouraged to get in touch as quickly as possible for more details.
Current and previous clients have first priority...and YES, we can select a 'candidate' for a Fairytale Fusion from the portraits captured in the Boutique Petite mini sessions =)
Here is a recent Fairytale Fusion commissioned by a fellow photographer in St Louis.

Thanks Nic...i had a blast creating this for you!!

I meant to post this the other day..sorry for the delay.
Here is an adorable 7 month old little boy and his lovely mom.
They braved the cold to come to the studio for this session which was done completely in black and white.

How about that sweet face!

They're Here!!

What may you ask are Boutique Petites?
They are the perfect opportunity for those with discriminating tastes to have a 'petite' sampling of a full session!
Boutique Petite Portrait Sessions with Lisa Julia Photography are 'themed mini sessions'. Each session focuses on the creation of at least one heirloom quality fine art piece for you to proudly display in your home.

Lisa Julia's time and talent.
session for up to 2 children for up to 30 minutes. (I won't be holding a stopwatch)=)

48 hour online ordering period.

Additionally, if you select an heirloom art piece sized 16x20 or larger your session fee of 85.00 will be put toward your art piece!
During the month of February the Boutique Petite theme will be all things it a little girl and her love of pink, or a little boy and his love for a toy train or special teddy bear. Allow me help you stylize the perfect session as the possibilities are limited only by what our imaginations can dream up!

Boutique Petite Sessions are held early in the day and take place in Lisa Julia's natural light studio
located on Mill Street in Historic Occoquan.
