Through Once Upon A Princess and Superhero Party Michigan, I have enjoyed getting to know so many children and families at birthdays, community events and breakfasts, library story times, new year's celebrations, festive farm gatherings and more. I am personally grateful for all we have met and made memories with over the last decade. When the pandemic hit, we were greatly impacted by the discouragement of people joining together. Over the last two years, we persevered and adjusted our offerings to be as safe as possible, celebrating birthdays in backyards and through virtual video calls with the performers who stayed with us.
In December 2021, we took a 'pause' to reevaluate our next steps, knowing our future would require great focus and commitment with unknown outcomes. While we tried to maintain excellent service with fantastic performers during the pandemic, this has proven to be quite difficult, and rebuilding what we lost would be a large undertaking.
Therefore, I have decided to discontinue the offering of our services indefinitely.
I am so sorry this chapter has ended, but I am so grateful for all we gained since opening in the Fall of 2010.
After much deliberation, we are taking a "pause" on our services currently offered. Once Upon A Princess and Superhero Party Michigan have been greatly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and while we have tried to maintain excellent service with fantastic performers, this has proven to be quite difficult. For now, this will just be a pause of services through January 2022 to allow time for reflection and possible future strategy to what's best for the company, for myself and for my family. We realize this decision may impact some of your plans personally and for that we ask for grace as this decision was not taken lightly.
We wish you all the best during the upcoming holiday season and we hope to see you again in 2022!
Get ready to sing, dance, and get special one-on-one time with your favorite princesses!
The "Pretty as a Princess Party" is a time for your little girl to get a special experience with her favorite princess characters! We sing, dance, dress up, read stories, talk about our dreams, and we capture the special moments together with keepsake photographs to remember our special time together! Each girl gets a special gift from the princesses to keep, and we end our time together with a sweet treat and lots of hugs!
WHAT'S INCLUDED: An hour-long, intimate event with a small group of children and the princess characters. There are 12 children maximum allowed in each party to ensure that each child gets special time with the princesses. A gift bag is included for each child. Each child will receive a special photograph with the princess of her choice during the event and one group photo, which will be delivered via high-resolution download with print release. (Prints may be purchased separately at a discounted rate.) Parent/guardian attendees will receive a $50 gift certificate to be redeemed on any session fee with Finkanie Photography for 2019!
These events are an amazing way for your child to get up close with her favorite characters and receive special interaction without the large crowd or distraction of other activities! Come join us to create lasting, lifetime memories for the special little girl in your life!
COST: $50 for the first child, $35 each for siblings. Refer-a-friend who books the same party and receive $15 off your total!
OPTIONAL: A fantasy image created specifically for your child with her favorite character can be added on during the event. There is the option for the child to be featured with a character or on her own. Please see Finkanie Photography page for examples!
Yes! It's true! Our Snow Queen has upgraded her attire to be even more magical for her future visits and events around Michigan. Our Sleeping Beauty (the original princess for Once Upon A Princess) will also be debuting a new party dress this spring as well!
Also a shout out to Finkanie Photography for this magically captured moment from last weekend's photoshoot! We will be partnering together in the future to offer the Imagination Series to future events in downtown Kalamazoo!
Our first photoshoot with Finkanie Photography last weekend was a HIT! Thank you to the contest contributors and winners who were chosen for coming out and joining the princesses for the afternoon. Stephanie with Finkanie Photography captured some adorable moments which can be seen here. In addition, here are a few of the magical moments photos made possible by Stephanie's photo magic!
Calling all princesses, future queens, and fabulous little ladies between ages 3 and 6!! Does your little girl ham it up for the camera? Does she love princesses?! If so, Finkanie Photography and Once Upon A Princess, LLC are seeking a few special ladies to join us to promote our (coming soon!) Pretty as a Princess Portrait Parties!
On Sunday, February 17th at 2:00 pm, the princesses will be spending time with a special group of girls who will dress up like the princesses and have their photos taken with the characters from Once Upon A Princess, LLC! The girls can wear their own princess dresses/outfits or choose from one of the beautiful dresses provided, but we do have the final say in the outfits worn in the promotional photos!
Summer is well underway,
