HOW IT WORKS:

To book your session you will pick your date/time using the links above. You will be asked to pay your session fee/retainer to hold your spot with a credit card via Paypal. We will follow up with you the following business day to work out any scheduling conflicts, and start preparing you for your session.

⇢ $149 Session Fee

Your session fee covers our style guide, working with you to plan for your session, time with Ashley photographing you an/or your family, careful curation of your session and a proofing and product consultation.

Once you are officially booked, you will get our style guide and a pre-session consultation to help plan for your session with us. Along with a series of helpful preparation guides to get the most out of your session. 

⇢ PHOTO DAY!

Our sessions are quick but thorough. We generally start with one or two family poses, if including adults, siblings and then individuals. All sessions with the exception of the tree farm can include your pets. Please just let us know during the planning phase. We keep things fun and relaxed and provide a great photography experience for all involved. 

⇢ IMAGE PROOFING

ONLY PURCHASE THE IMAGES YOU LOVE! With our a la cart pricing structure, you are only paying for the images you really love in a format that works best for your family. After the session, you have the choice of proofing your images in person or through a web gallery. There are pros and cons to both.

IN-PERSON – Meet in our studio about a week after your session to go through the images together on a big screen and be able to see our products in person. We design your holiday cards on the spot. You are proofing without watermarked images and can compare images side by side with my professional assistants.

WEB GALLERY – We can provide you with a timed web gallery to proof your images approximately one week after your session. You have the convenience of proofing in your home on your time, however, the images will be heavily watermarked. And no ability to zoom in or compare.

>> Approx. 20 Images to choose from  <<

⇢ PRODUCTS

With our system, you get to pick the format that works for your family. Every image purchased gets our full signature retouching applied to have your family look their best selves. All our products are of top quality. Digital files are emailed within a week of selection.

We do offer product collections of our most popular products at a discounted rate. Most clients generally spend $400 on products from their session but there is no obligation to purchase.

Operation Delta Dog is a nonprofit organization with a mission to rescue homeless dogs and train them to work as service dogs for veterans who are suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and related challenges. I was very excited to hear they will be attending Dog Days at Mill No. 5 where our photography studio is located. Believing strongly in the mission of this organization, our studio has decided sponsor a fundraising project for them. 

100% of the $99 portrait session fee will go towards Operation Delta Dog. Prints & Digital Files are additional. Photos will be ready within two weeks to make your purchases and share with friends. Who doesn’t want awesome photos of their fur-baby while helping veterans and homeless dogs???

The Caci Family sure does make cute babies. We’ve been photographing them for what seems like a lifetime now. They’ve become more like family than clients. So happy we get to add to their ever growing family portraits that adorn their home.  Check out more Caci Family Portraits

I’m in the process of finding a cast for a short film my photography studio is putting together.  You can see samples of our photography work here and our last kid based project Vote for Chase here.

This is a mockumentary about four  girls who go through the process of  becoming flower girls. Think a mixture of A Mighty Wind, Glee and the Hello Flo commercials. I’m looking for girls who are naturally funny and can improvise well.

This will be shot documentary style. The opening scenes will be interviews of each girl in their ‘bedrooms’ and then b-roll to supplement it. These have not been scheduled as we would like to work on that with each family. They will however take place before 12/30/2014

The coach will guide them and pushes them through a series of activities & tests to become the best flower girls they can be. Training Scenes will be filmed on Sunday 10/5/2014 this is mandatory for each  FG. Rain date is scheduled for Columbus Day Monday 10/13

Each girl will be filmed at each of their respective weddings with a follow up interview with the coach on how they did and what they thought of the wedding.

The Sisters and The Brat weddings are scheduled for Wednesday 9/3/2104 with an early afternoon start time at the Lyman Estate in Waltham, MA . The Tomboy wedding will be at Mill No. Five shoot date TBA.  See the end of this for all important dates.

I’m currently looking for four girls to play the parts of the flower girls. The roles are listed below. Our coach is 48” tall so I prefer girls shorter than her. This is a spoof/mockumentary so girls who are naturally hilarious is a plus.


THE BRAT – AGE: 6/7

She is always right and when she isn’t things get bad. Does not approve of her mother’s marriage because “he” takes mom away from her. Mom throws money/gifts at her to make up for her absence. Gets vindictive at the wedding, is very sneaky but deep down it’s because she is lonely and just wish her mom could “see” her.  

THE SISTERS

OLDER SISTER – AGE: 5/6

She is a “do gooder” really takes being a flower girl seriously. Is excited and proud to be in her first wedding. 

LITTLE SISTER – AGE: 2/3

Mostly in lala land. Looks up to older sister and tries to copy her but doesn’t always get it right. Could care less about the wedding or being a flower girl.  She is mostly there for comical cute factor.

THE TOMBOY – AGE: 7

Would rather be in jeans and sneakers and at the skate park. Mom is a stage mom with high ambitions of having a princess flower girl. Is doing this just to appease her mom. Doesn’t really like being the center of attention and though she tries not  to show it has anxiety about doing it.


I’m hosting a casting call/Auditions on Wednesday  8/13 in Lowell, MA at Mill No. 5  from 6-9 PM


Please have anyone interested in auditioning for these roles email me hello@pizzutiphotography.com just so I have an idea of who is coming. I would like to interview each girl in the character they would like to play using the description above rather than go by a script.

As of right now this job is a trade for reel, stills & headshots, and can offer portfolio shoots or family portraits in exchange for your time when we wrap up the project.  We have zero budget for this and it mostly a collaboration of local wedding vendors and our studio to pull it off. 

 

Important Dates:

8/13 – Casting and Auditions

8/31 or 9/1 – Meeting to go over wedding scenes, practice and dress fittings.

– Once I get the cast I can see which of those days  works for everyone

9/3 – The Brat & The Sisters Weddings at the Lyman Estate in Waltham, MA

10/5 – The Training scenes – most of the day – All FG + Coach

10/13 – Training scenes rain date

THANK YOU!
