ABOUT ENCHANTED FAIRIES
Enchanted Fairies is a studio boasting world renowned Photographers, and Special FX Artists specializing in wall portraiture and has raised over $200,000 for local charitable organizations right here in North Texas.
Enchanted Fairies reinvents the studio portrait experience by providing a special, fun, and interactive way for your children and our photographers to create works of art.
Your children will step onto the pages of a storybook in our enchanted forest sets. Fairies will don flowing dresses, and be adorned in flower halos as they playfully gaze into magic orbs. Their wings will shimmer and shine with their magic for all to see. Brave and mighty warriors will showcase their archery skills with a bow and arrow and brandish a sword to slay a dragon and conquer the lands.
These are the magical moments that are captured today and will be cherished forever.
A MESSAGE FROM THE CREATORWhen I first started this journey, I dreamed of bringing just a little bit of magic into children’s lives in a world that just is simply moving way too fast and taking my love of charity just one step further. A little pixie dust and a lot of hard work later, my team and I have, with you, been able to raise over $200,000 for incredible organizations who are fighting ground zero against hunger in our community and are committed to helping children who are in low income situations.
Since starting our Enchanted Fairies mission, we have been able to do sessions for over 8,000 children in the DFW Metroplex area and even from international countries! I get letters from mothers telling me that the sessions have strengthened their daughters’ self-esteem in a time when the media is doing a lot of harm to their young minds.
In the first few months of doing sessions benefiting Children's Medical Center, I spoke to a mother that brought her daughter in. She told me that before the session that day, her daughter had gotten the diagnosis that her cancer had come back from remission, yet when she put on her fairy wings and made wishes with the magic light, it was like the diagnosis had not happened. She said that for those 30 minutes, her daughter felt invigorated and most of all, normal, like other children.
It was that story that made me push above all else and fight for the ability to continue to bring magic to these families lives, one 30 minute session at a time, and most of all, at a low fee that 100% of proceeds benefit charity.
This has been our mission at Enchanted Fairies and it is our great honor to serve the community and you.
OUR CURRENT SPECIAL
With your $25 donation per child to Kidd's Kids you will receive one FREE photo session and one FREE Limited Edition 8x10 Enchanted Portrait per household donated by the Enchanted Fairies Studio. 100% of the proceeds benefit Kidd's Kids.
The full magical session is one to experience, and our top photographers go above and beyond to make sure your family has a great time during their session. This and the complimentary 8X10 for the group is something we donate our time, talents, and resources to give to you as our token of gratitude for donating to Kidd's Kids.
Each year Kidd's Kids sponsors approximately 50 children and their families (including siblings between the ages of 5 and 16) for the Walt Disney World trip. All aspects of the trip are coordinated by Kidd’s Kids. All funds raised go directly to cover the cost of sending the children and their families to Walt Disney World®, administrative expenses of Kidd’s Kids, and to sustain an endowment fund for the purpose of providing long-term growth and stability for the charitable programs of the Kraddick Foundation.
The Kraddick Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization, founded by nationally syndicated morning show personality Kidd Kraddick. The Kidd’s Kids program is based on the premise of making a difference in the lives of children with special medical needs. You can learn more about this fantastic organization by visiting http://www.kiddskids.com.
My name is Dan Gutier and I am the creator of Enchanted Fairies Studio. Every year I hand pick a charitable organization close to my heart right here in North Texas to be a beneficiary of our studio's fundraising efforts through our famous annual Enchanted Fairies calendar.
This year, we have partnered with North Texas Food Bank in the fight against hunger in our communities and now Kidd's Kids for our second 2015 Kingdom Calendar. Kidd's Kids' primary goal is to provide children (ages 5 to 12), who have a chronic or terminal illness or are physically challenged, with an unforgettable adventure. They work hard to raise the funds necessary to send these special kids on an all-expenses paid, fun-filled, vacation to Walt Disney World® in Florida.
With the help of the wonderful people in our community we have been able to donate over $200,000 to organizations such as Children's Medical Center, Frisco Family Services, and the North Texas Food Bank. This marks the fourth year for our annual charity calendars and I am absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Kidd's Kids for the first time. I've personally set a goal of raising over $100,000 for the 2015 calendars and I know with your help that it's something we can achieve together!
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
The Enchanted Fairies Kingdom Calendar is broken down into 3 phases. Photo Sessions, Online Voting, and Calendar Sales. 100% of the proceeds we raise from all 3 phases will be donated to Kidd's Kids.
Photo sessions will take place at our new studio location inside the Shops at Willow Bend located at 6121 W Park Blvd #C222 Plano, TX 75093 on the upper level. When you arrive at the mall please park at Neiman Marcus. Walk into the mall and use the escalator on the right. We are located on the upper level between Dillard’s and Neiman Marcus. You can click the address for directions. Sessions will officially begin August 1st, 2014 and wrap up on September 30th, 2015. We have availability every day of the week and feature extended hours.
On October 1st, contestants will be entered in our on-line voting contest. In this phase, you can recruit family & friends to vote for your Child! $1 per vote with a $5 minimum and you can vote as many times as you want. Online voting will end on October 31st, 2015 at 11:59:59PM.
Winners will be announced Early November, 2015 and the 13 children with the most votes will be featured in our 5th Annual Charity Calendar. The grand prize winner will receive a $10,000 prize package.
Absolutely! Many of our sessions involve entire families and kids. Brothers and sisters are more than welcome to take photos together.
A $25 donation applies for each child and each family will receive One Limited Edition 8x10 Enchanted Portrait.
Your child must be between the ages of 0-16 to participate. Our calendar last year featured children of all ages.
The girls will be transformed into enchanted fairies, boys into mighty warriors, and then transported into a magical forest right before your eyes!
You should plan for a session to take about 30 minutes per child.
After your session is completed, we will schedule what we call an ordering and portrait premiere. At your ordering and portrait premiere, you will view all images taken during your session, select your complimentary Limited Edition 8x10 Enchanted Portrait as a token of our gratitude, and you will have an opportunity to order additional portraits.
Because of the level of detail our photography provides, we include 3-4 hours of retouching with every single image ordered with our studio. Making sure every image receives ample amount of post-production magic to make it a showstopping piece for that special room in your home.
We know an outing to a photography studio with little ones can sometimes be daunting. That is why we aim to make our studio a hassle-free, smooth, and fun experience.
We provide ALL the costumes, wings, accessories, and props for your storybook session. When booking let us know if you will be adding an All Access Day Pass to Glimmer, our in studio salon. Your little fairy will enjoy a confidence boosting mini makeover with our resident hair stylist and makeup artist that shines through on every image. If styling hair yourself please have it done before arriving for your photo session. For girls, make sure they have a pair of shorts to wear under the dress.
For teens and older, please be sure to call ahead or bring your own special sparkle outfit. Since our specialty is children's photography, our wardrobe can sometimes be limited in these sizes.
Your session fee is due at the time you schedule your portrait session. Your appointment cannot be reserved until the session fee is paid. Due to our limited schedule, session fees are non refundable but may be applied towards a rescheduled session with a 48-hour cancellation notice.
We will be publishing our full menu with an idea gallery online very soon.
Our wall portraits come with different options for finishes and frames so they match the decor inside your home. If you've thought about where you'd like to have these portraits in your home, you're more than welcome to take a photo of a few walls you'd like to design for. We can then design with that space in mind. We have 18 different dress colors and can make sure we design something that really brings the room together. Feel free to text a photo or call 214.607.3030 to discuss.
Our most popular enlargement is board-mounted, allows you to choose between Metallic or Matte, and is finished in lacquer which ensures a life span of 100-120 years which allows them to be passed on from generation to generation.
While there is no obligation, should you decide to purchase, investment at our studio starts at $289.95 and includes the 3-4 hours of retouching and all magic effects in each of your enchanted images.
It's just as easy as clicking on that book now button below!
Due to our volume in our efforts to raise funds for Kidd's Kids and in order to ensure each family has a full magical session, we do ask that everyone arrive on time for their booked session. Any late arrivals past the 15 minute mark will be subject to reschedule. Please keep that in mind when scheduling with us.
If you are interested in our pre-session salon Glimmer Day Pass, be sure to arrive about 20 to 30 minutes early so one of our Resident Hair and Make Up artists can take care of you.
If you'd like any more information not covered here please call our wonderful receptionist and introduce yourself at (214)607-3030 or email her at EnchantedFairiesStudio@gmail.com. She will take wonderful care of you and will walk you through every step of the process. :)
