Silhouettes by Studio Zero

On Sunday, December 4, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Margo Hamilton and Ron Evans of Studio Zero Photography will offer sittings for couples, individuals, and children for their modern take on the silhouette at James Monroe's Highland.

These silhouettes make wonderful holiday, birthday, and anniversary gifts. Studio Zero is waiving the $100 sitting fee for silhouettes made at Highland for one day only. This on-site offering presents significant savings while giving the opportunity to support Highland. Thirty percent of all proceeds will go toward educational programming at the historic estate of James Monroe.

Admission fees do not apply, and each 15-minute sitting includes a complimentary house tour to be redeemed that day for up to two people. Enjoy our newly revised house tour free of charge, and take home your silhouette that day.* Ron and Margo are offering three print options:

Option 1: 5x7 - $30
Option 2: 8x2 - $40
Option 3: 11x14 - $55 *This option will be mailed to you. Price includes postage.

Payment must be made in person via credit card, cash, or check. Space is limited. Reservations are suggested but walk-ups will be accepted. To reserve your sitting, sign-up easily through the link on Highland's event website. You may also contact us at or (434)293-8000.
