Due to high demand, MSP currently has an extensive wait list with shoots booked into the year 2023. Because of this, we are asking that you fill out a questionnaire that includes a photo of you from the knees up with no filters and your hair down.
This allows us to build your dream shoot styled exactly for you.
What is Portrait Couture?
Couture specifically means one of a kind and completely hand made. Your session will be a one of a kind work of art that will never be the same as anyone else's. Melody Smith conceptualizes and hand designs wardrobe, backgrounds, and props to create a unique story-telling masterpiece.
Because of this, each shoot takes MONTHS to plan, design, create, and execute.
What all is involved?
First we require an online consultation, a photo of your from the knees up with no filters with your hair down, and an inspirational Pinterest board.
During your online consultation Melody will view your photograph, inspiration board, and chat with you about the story you want to tell in your photographs.
The finished design is a surprise and Melody makes the final creative decisions.
Why is communication a must?
Couture portraits are incredibly personal and require a connection and relationship between artist and muse. You will be required to communicate regularly with Melody through Facebook. We will share images, ideas, and discover your personal story to develop an exclusive series of portraits.
Your final portrait will hang beautifully framed in your home not only as a work of art, but as an heirloom for generations.
