What does private mean? Textbook definition means "confined to or intended only for the persons immediately concerned; confidential: a private meeting."
That's also what it means to me!!!! A big part of Castelo Portrait Art is completely private appointments. Whether it's a fur only event, A Charleston Santa Experience, a Fairy event, or even studio classics, I don't overlap appointment times. I always make the schedule with enough wiggle room that your family is the only one in the studio at a time. We lock our front door and keep everything by appointment to ensure that your session is all about your family and keeping the focus on you. We don't like anyone to feel rushed or have anxiety because there are other animals or families in the studio!!!!! The decision to do this has nothing to do with the odd times we are in right now - I've always operated this way. I love my small studio here in Charleston, SC and I want to make my clients feel like they're the only ones in the world while they're here. A big part of that, I've learned, it being completely private.
So now you know!!!! When you book a session with us, you can expect it to be private and completely personalized to you and your family!!!!
