Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have been in the field of early childhood education for almost 20 years, so I know children! Art has always been my passion so I combined the two and created Once Upon A Party! I care about what children want, and understand how important their big day is to them! I LOVE meeting so many children and their families!! I also LOVE the look on their faces when they look in the mirror to see my handiwork!

Face Painting

Shauna came for face painting and balloons at a 6-year old's birthday party. She was responsive, punctual, amazing with children and wonderful from start to finish. Would highly recommend her and use her services again!

The balloon artist was on time, very professional and super friendly to the students. The choices for the balloons were simply awesome and everyone had a wonderful time!

Face Painting

Shauna did a fantastic job with both the face painting and balloon animals at my daughter's birthday party. She has a bubbly, kind personality and the kids loved her. We would definitely hire her again!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For airbrush, face painting, and balloon twisting, we have a set fee of $65 per hour, per artist. Our packages have a set fee, or services can be chosen a la carte.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My goal is to find out what each customer's specific needs are and meet them! Their event is a big deal to them, making it a big deal to me! I want to ease the workload for my customers so they can enjoy their event with their guests.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education and have been in the education field for 15 years. This makes working with children very natural for me. I have been operation OUAP for over 4 years now, and have learned a lot in that short time in regards to party planning!
