Stranger Sessions

Stranger Sessions are blowing up the internet in North America and quite frankly they are a fun, new twist on the "blind date"! Being that I am a sucker for love stories and love connections, as well as singles responding to "Couple" Model Calls saying, "I wish I had someone to do this with, but unfortunately, I am single!"; I decided to try this out.

I will capture the story/date from start to finish. Note though that if anything comes of the relationship after (friends or a romance) you better believe that I will be posting about that too! (I get dibs on any proposals/engagements/weddings that could come of this LOL) - but no pressure; you may just make a new friend or just have a fun evening with a story to tell your friends after! ;)

I am new to this type of session (but not photographing adventurous couples sessions), so if you want to try it, keep reading! ;)

Applicants MUST Meet The Below Criteria I'm Searching For

  • MUST PAY A NON-REFUNDABLE FEE OF $100 if a Match is Found and a Date setup
  • YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST BE SINGLE - These photos will be plastered ALL over my social media accounts and Kelly Szott Photography will not be held responsible for the consequences of your actions/decisions
  • Be AT LEAST 21 years of age.
  • You MUST be comfortable in front of the camera or at least comfortable with knowing a camera is present.
  • You must be willing to sign a model release and be okay with the images and story being shared all over my social media accounts & my blog.
  • Must have a very outgoing personality with a good sense of humour.
  • You must agree to show affection, intimate posing, and (possibly) kissing the stranger on the blind date.
  • You must be 100% committed to the session, time, and date. Please DO NOT apply if there is even an inkling you will back out. Remember there are multiple peoples time involved in this so I would hate for one person to back out and ruin it for the rest of us.
  • Must be within 2hrs drive of the Calgary and/or Banff/Canmore area.
  • Be open to location, date, and time - Sessions most likely will be on a Saturday or Sunday, but details will be discussed further with the chosen participants.
  • You MUST submit the photos requested at the bottom of the application


Book a session with a magnificent Friesian Horse or your own favourite equine this year, any season, and capture the stunning beauty of your majestic horse. These sessions are 30-60 minutes long and will take place in the Priddis area SW of Calgary (where the Friesian is stabled) or wherever your horse is located. You will leave with 10 digital images that illustrate the love and the beautiful connection you have with your beloved animal, or purchase additional images if you wish.

Do you have a horse lover in your life who doesn’t have a horse of their own, but would love amazing portraits with a horse? Gift them this year with a gift certificate to have photos done with Toby, the magnificent Friesian, or with my own beautiful buckskin mare! I bet they will shower you with love, but not too much love, they have to save some for the horse! ;)
