About the event

It's your time to shine in our Christmas Eve Event

Perfect Ugly Sweater Opportunity!!!

We thought it would be a great idea to offer another round of Awkward 80s to people while people have time off of work or their families/friends are in town! Come by on Christmas Eve, have some egg nog/hot cocoa/coffee, and get some amazing family photos. We have many setups, including a Christmas one. These won't be ready by Christmas day, but they are an opportunity to get photos with people you don't get to see every day :)

We've all seen those awkward '80s portraits, with the crude poses, floating heads, and the forced smiles (or maybe lack thereof). For anyone who ever pulled down the old photobook and out slipped one of these JCPenny artifacts, I envy you. But for those of us who can't relive this odd nostalgia, I say "Let's create it." Your future self will thank you for it. So, pop your hair up or split it right down the middle. Dust off that blue jean jacket or strap on that waistbelt. It's time to show that true potential.

--NOTE: Initially we were offering these sessions only as standard sessions, but after an overwhelming response from a few Facebook posts, we've decided to select a single day to organize these sessions while being able to offer significantly reduced costs. This helps us manage our time and also opens the door to those who may be unable or unwilling to afford a standard session. --

The session sitting and what it includes:

In the time leading up to the session, we can consult to make sure you're prepared!

15 minutes of preparation (be early by at least 5 minutes, we fill up quickly, and if you are more than 5 minutes late, we won't be able to take you)

15 minutes of shooting time (this is  more than enough time with our setups)

One professionally edited photo with the opportunity to add more or buy the full set (most popular option)

We want to know what editing styles or looks you like, so we encourage you to send or bring in any images that catch your eye! With years and years of experience, I am very confident we can accomplish your styles. Here is a link to our first event and a mood board as well!

Additional options:

For those looking for that one great image to send out to family on their holiday cards or to put up above the mantle to throw off unsuspecting guests, the sitting session may be enough. If you prefer an album or a handful of selects, you have the option to select more after your session. 15 minutes of shooting can produce quite a few great images. Additional images are $50 a piece or $250 for the full set!

These prices are significantly reduced from our average prices during this event, and we're doing this to make these sessions available to as many people as possible so we can have fun creating this project! ( To see our normal pricing structure, please view this link www.nilasphotography.com/book )

Printing options will also be available, however, you will not be required to print through us. Although, it is appreciated!

Location:

This is not just a random studio, this is one of Portland's premiere spaces amongst creative professionals!
