“Maybe Christmas (he thought) doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more.” - The Grinch
Hoo-ray!! You've heard the great news: the Grinch is coming to town! We hope you get to meet him; he truly is such a sweet character now. And to show that he's had a change of heart, he loves coming to town once a year before Christmas and getting his photos with the kiddos and families! Now, he does still have a bit of a twisted sense of humor... and he will come up from behind and scare the kiddos (if it's okay of course). If you're not wanting Mr. Grinch to scare anyone, that's a-okay! He can behave and properly introduce himself. Just make sure you let me (Ryley) know!
The Retainer Fee.
Grinchmas Outside: $350.00
This session takes place at Urfer Family Park in Sarasota, FL with a couch and Christmas tree setup. You will receive 30 minutes of shooting and the session typically consists of 10 minutes without the Grinch (to get super cute Christmas photos before his arrival) and then the remaining 20 minutes will capture the Grinch either surprising everyone or being introduced to everyone. This session includes 1 edited digital image (print release for this image is included), but you are able to upgrade to a collection for more (read below)! Because I will be reserving a time slot and date for this session and turning away other clients, this retainer fee is non-refundable and does not get credited towards any of the collections.
Grinchmas in the Studio: $250.00
This session takes place at the Color in Chaos Photography, LLC studio located at 228 Tampa Ave. W, Venice, FL 34285. The setup will have one backdrop and one or two chairs (depending on the party size) to sit with and/or stand next to Mr. Grinch. This session will not include Mr. Grinch scaring anyone; this will be his "chill" weekend in Florida before he goes back to Whoville. This session is 15 minutes and you will receive 1 edited digital image (print release for this image is included), but you are able to upgrade to a collection for more (read below)! Because I will be reserving a time slot and date for this session and turning away other clients, this retainer fee is non-refundable and does not get credited towards any of the collections.

How many people can be in this session?
Your retainer fee includes 6 people or the outside session and 4 people for the studio session. If you're wanting to add more people, it is $25.00 per person (10 max outside/6 max inside).
Do I have to scare my kid?
Absolutely not! We can have our 10 minutes without the Grinch, and then have him properly introduced to your kiddos. If you don't want photos with the Grinch at all, we can arrange something else- just let me know!
Will you take these photos elsewhere?
Because my setup is large and Mr. Grinch takes a lot of stress from these sessions already, no. The only two locations available are at Urfer Family Park in Sarasota or at the Color in Chaos Photography, LLC studio in Venice.
When can i expect to receive my photos?
You can expect to choose your images one week after your session. If you haven't already upgraded to a collection, and you decide that you want to, this would be the time to do so. If no collection is chosen, your photo will take 3 additional business days to finish editing and deliver. If a collection is chosen, 7 additional business days will be needed to finish editing and deliver.
How many photos will i receive?
You will receive a minimum of 10 images to choose from. If you opt into the Very Merry collection, you will receive every single image that is shown to you. So if you see 12 images, then you'll receive all of them.
Can we have a Christmas session without the Grinch?
Of course! The prices and locations are the same, but you'll receive 2 edited images instead of 1.
