How Do I Pay For My Spot?

Due to COVID restrictions and safety rules, we are limited to a max of 8 models for this event. Once we are sold out there will be no additional tickets. You may select the group you want to be in A/B/C/D. Your ticket selection will define your check-in time and when your photoshoot will start.


NOTE: we will open sales for Sessions A & B first. Once those are sold out we will open up Session C and then Session D



HOW DO I GET MY OUTFIT? Once you selected a time and purchased your ticket, we will forward your information to Chocolate Diamond. All arrangements for pickup/delivery will be coordinated between you and Ivy. She will be reaching out to you to make arrangements in about a week or so. Depending on your location, Ivy may even be able to come to you. 

WHAT SIZES DOES CHOCOLATE DIAMOND OFFER? The new Floral Themed Line for spring 2021 will be available in the following sizes = 14 – 26. 

CAN I STILL ATTEND IF I AM NOT A SIZE 14-26? – YES! You will still receive all the benefits of a Vision Makers PDX photoshoot. You will need to provide your own outfit. In this situation please contact Chocolate Diamond to let them know you will not need to borrow an outfit from them.

HOW LONG WILL MY PHOTOSHOOT BE? Regardless of which session you choose, you will have roughly one hour of time. This translates to approximately 30min with the first photographer, and 30min with a second photographer.

IS THERE A GUARANTEED NUMBER OF IMAGES? – The short answer is no. This event is not about producing a ton of random images. It is about creating great, high-quality images. That being said you will receive ‘many’ images; in line with what our previous events have brought you. – typically 10-15 edited images from each photographer.

WHAT IF I ARRIVE LATE? – We highly recommend you arrive by your check-in time. This will give you one hour to check-in (paperwork), finish any last min details before your shoot (hair, makeup), and be 100% ready to move upstairs for the start of your photoshoot.  Remember, you are reserving one hour of time with the photographer(s). As such we are not able to allow your session to go over into the next session. Please plan ahead accordingly. The price of your ticket helps us pay for the rental fee and keeps Vision Makers PDX running. As such no refunds will be issued.


How Does Vision Makers PDX Keep Me Safe?

As we progress into 2021, many areas of society are starting to open back up. We want to keep everyone safe so social distancing will be in place for all aspects of our event. We chose this indoor venue so it would be much easier for everyone to keep their distance. We believe everyone has a right to their own level of protection, but this event has min guidelines. As such there are a few rules for this event:

FACE MASKS ARE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES Unless you are in front of the camera and being actively photographed you must wear your mask (no exceptions!)
• Keep social distancing in place at a level you and the photographer agree on BEFOREHAND.
• Models will need to do their own hair & makeup.
• NO SHARING of makeup, tools, equipment clothes, drinks, food, etc. (bring what you need, don’t share)
• We will limit the number of participants to maximize social distancing.
Models & photographers only. No guests allowed. Paid attendees & staff only.
• Plan ahead – bring what you need for the event. Don’t assume someone else will be providing it for you.
Both the model and the photographer must be wearing a facemask when viewing images from the back of a camera
• Besides being required to sign a model release, there will be a COVID waiver for you to sign.
• We have a touchless thermometer and will use it during the check-in process to confirm your temperature is normal. 
• Please understand that Social Distancing rules are fluid, and as such, rules may change. We will follow the current rules in place for the county, at the time the event happens.

Anybody found to be non-compliant with the above, will not be allowed to attend any future Vision Maker Events.
