You the option of ordering a custom-made tutu with exactly the color and sized to you, or I have various options on hand to borrow if you prefer.
If you are decide to purchase a custom-made tutu, then it takes 3-4 weeks for delivery, so you will need to keep that in mind when booking your session. The tutu’s are $315 and you can select from any of the colors below. Many client’s end up shadow-boxing the tutu when done with the shoot to accompany their artwork.

How long is the session?
You can anticipate the session itself to take about an hour or two. We work until I am confident that I have what I need to create the best piece of artwork.
How far in advance do I need to book?
We typically suggest booking at least 2 weeks in advance which allows us at least one brainstorming session together before the session itself. If you are purchasing a TUTU to keep, then we need at least 4 weeks notice, as each tutu is custom made and that takes time.

How long after the session can I expect the artwork?
Your images will be ready for viewing approximately 7 days after the session. We decide together which image will be best used as the foundation for your art piece. It is only after the foundation image is selected that additional design elements are added in to create one-of-a-kind artwork. This creating process can take up to 10 days. From there, and once you approve the final image, the image is sent to the printer and then by the studio where it is hand-painted by Heather. Once you have selected the image you would like as the foundation for your art piece to when you have it in your hands takes approximately 3 weeks. Please keep in mind that we are creating one-of-a-kind artwork and this process does take time.
Where do the session takes place?
Heather is based in Naples, Florida, but works all over the world. We work together before the shoot to concept the best location for you. Locations in the past have included: Naples Beach, The Florida Everglades, Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Colorado dude ranch, Cusco, Peru, San Juan Island, Venice, Rome, Paris and other various locations in Europe.
How do you include the wings, birds and other special effects?
Each of these pieces have other design elements added in post-production, which is what makes each of these shoots so special and unique. The creative work done by Heather after the shoot is what makes each of these pieces a one-of-a-kind artwork. Before your piece go to print, you will see a proof, so you can be assured you will love the artwork before it prints. Each print is then hand-deckled on the edging and then Heather hand paints each one, adding a layer of protection and texture to your piece.
