Once Upon a Workshop - Full Payment option (discounted)


You are cordially invited to accompany Jessica Holt of Dalton Lane Portrait Co. and Lori Blumenstock of Your Fairy Godmother for a magical storybook learning experience on July 24-26th.

Rolling farm hills framed by the majestic Appalachian Mountains will greet you upon arrival to our private studio and farm located in beautiful East Tennessee. You will be within a short driving distance to lodging and eateries and all that our region has to offer. 

This unique experience will include a walkthrough of the collaborative process of wardrobe styling and set design (both of which are essential in creating personalized custom sessions), building a portfolio to showcase specialized images and a seminar to teach you how to best market and sell your final product.

Work hand in hand with Lori Blumenstock through her process of selecting and styling one of a kind looks that will set your work apart and will help create an instantly recognizable brand for your business. The custom sets will feature never before seen couture costumes that encompass a variety of iconic children's stories and songs such as Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Hansel & Gretel, Little Bo Peep and Little Boy Blue, just to name a few. You will also learn how to add worth to your business by removing the stress of wardrobe options from your clients and allowing them to fully enjoy their portrait experience with you.

All photographers will have the opportunity to gain hands on experience as we photograph models and settings in a controlled atmosphere.  Unlike some hectic shoot outs, there will be no clamoring over one another for a shot. Our guests will be assembled into very small groups to maximize your time with each model and set. This will allow everyone to take a myriad of images and to benefit the most from the experience. 

Jessica Holt will host a real time learning experience as she guides you through theme conception to creation of a storybook session. Join her on a guided shoot, posing instruction and client interaction. Follow along as transforms an image into a piece of storybook fine art. This will give you the knowledge to offer your clients a specialized session they will never forget.

Certified Professional Photographer Stephanie W Turner will be hosting an instructional workshop that will teach you the benefits of off camera lighting and how it can transform and add ease to your editing process. She will be sharing with you the tools that Jessica credits to elevating her storybook process to the next level. This experience will benefit any level of photographer.
