Our signature experience is our Dear Daughter photo session, designed to help parents tell their daughters how amazing they are, just the way they are.
We're often asked, "When is the right time for a Dear Daughter session?" and our answer is always the same: why not now? We know how much you want your daughter to feel valued and loved and this intentional experience is designed to do just that. Whatever her age, it's an experience that will help boost her confidence as she's navigating the lengthy process of becoming.
Some of our recent sessions have been around these special milestones.
In-studio photo shoots for girls. These sessions are playful and low-key. In-studio sessions come with professional make-up and hair-styling for an added fee and a variety of fun wardrobe changes. Bring her favorite outfits and accessories and we'll pull together several stylish and fashionable looks for the shoot. She'll also get to play in our fashion closet filled to the brim with hats, scarves, jewelry and other trendy accessories. These sessions are fun solo and also with a friend or group of friends.
Outdoor photo sessions are fun and Seattle offers no end of beautiful location options: Gasworks Park, the Seattle Arboretum, the I-5 Colonnade, Pioneer Square, Kerry Park, Golden Gardens State Park, the UW campus, or right here in our own Madrona neighborhood. The possibilities are endless.
We love photographing girls at this exciting time in their life. There's so much joy and anticipation - and what better time to communicate once more that yes, you have what it takes and you're going to do great things!
The heart and soul of Dear Daughter Studio is building confidence via empowering messages which makes us a perfect fit for the graduating girl.
While we adore the confidence-boosting experience of a Dear Daughter Session just for her, oftentimes the day isn't complete without photos that include those who love her most: her family. Whether it's an extension of her Dear Daughter Session or a separate family photo shoot, we've got you covered. Call or visit the studio for more details on this add-on option.
Some of our most cherished photographs are those that provide a glimpse back to childhood with our very first friends...our siblings. We love to document these special relationships and help preserve their foundational memories. Call or visit the studio for more details on this add-on option.
The friends we make as tweens & teens are some of our earliest influential relationships in life. Bring along your daughter's BFF to her photo session to document this special relationship, or book a dedicated session with a group of her favorite friends.
Rent Dear Daughter Studio for your daughter's birthday party.
