Portfolio Building Sessions portraits

Glamour Selfie

Kellie Frye Photography specializes in portraiture and boudoir for women of all ages. Portfolio building sessions are an opportunity for me to create images that I need for advertising and marketing. In these sessions I want to create photos that will inspire others to want the same. Although the session is not "free", it is offered at a discount and for your help with my business I gift you 2 images of your choice valued at $125 each.

Session Guidelines-What to Expect

Portfolio building sessions last 2-3 hours. Your discounted session fee covers a full hair and makeup transformation by the amazing Beauty Art District.

During the session I will take a lot of photos. It is during these special sessions that I can try new set ups in the studio and experiment a bit with lighting and posing. I have a very experienced eye for editing photos and will select the best images. I will fully edit and retouch about 20 photos for you to view when you return to the studio. I do not show clients unedited photos from the session.

All clients will be required to sign a standard model release. This explains my liability and the copyright laws pertaining to my work. Portfolio building sessions are to create images that I can use online and for marketing. You will need to agree that I can use your images online in this manner. I also post a Before and After photo of your makeup and allow Beauty Art District to use your images for their website and marketing as well.

Photo Usage

I please ask that you respect my work and business when posting photos online. I appreciate being tagged on FB or IG. Please don't alter the photos with filters but use them as I have provided them to you. These images represent my business and are what others will see when deciding to book a session with me.

  • Please arrive to the studio with DRY hair and a clean moisturized face.
  • Hands are prominent in photos so make sure nails are at least neat and clean
  • Roots are very visible in photos so be sure to touch up color if needed.
  • Moisturize those lips! Chapped lips are no bueno!
  • Please come alone to the studio. My studio is a small cozy space where women can come to get away from it all. There is just not room for another person while shooting.
  • Please arrive on time. If you are more than 15 minutes late I will have to cancel your session.
  • Please understand that I DO NOT reschedule clients that cancel or don't show. Your session fee is nonrefundable.

What to Bring


We will cover most of this in your wardrobe consultation.

  • Clothing that is tighter rather than loose. I can pose you to look amazing in tighter clothing but loose clothing makes everyone look larger than they are.
  • Please avoid patterns or stripes if possible.
  • Dresses or tops with dramatic necklines or backs, I love strappy items
  • Keep in mind color is great for photos-please don't bring all black clothing. I also love metallics like gold and silver as well as more neutral color palettes.
  • Don't forget the jewelry-big chunky necklaces always look great depending on your style.
  • I love sparkles so anything with sequins is great
  • Lace is in so dresses with sheer lace sleeves or bodysuits always look dramatic
  • Please eat before your session. Modeling is hard work! If you think you'll need a pick me up mid session please bring a snack.

The Studio

The studio is located at 6004 Crown Royal Circle. It is in my home so it is in a residential area. From 495 take Exit S. Van Dorn/Franconia. Turn Right onto S. Van Dorn. At 2nd light turn Right onto Crown Royal Drive. Drive down the hill to 3 way stop sign (tennis court on the right). Left onto High Meadow and then immediate Left onto Crown Royal Circle. I am the third townhouse on the left. Park anywhere in front.

Photo Reveal

About 10 days after your session you will return to the studio to see all of your photos. It is during this time that you will select your 2 gift images. You have the option to purchase other photos at this time but it is not an expectation. Photos you don't purchase I save and use for marketing. I frequently videotape the reveal session for future marketing videos.

Thank you

Thank you for for helping me grow my business. Although this guide book seems a little overwhelming, I want you to know I will work hard to make sure you have a great time being a supermodel! I hope to take amazing photos of you that you will love! Please let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to working with you!
