Stylish, Simple High School Senior Photos
If you’re like me, you don’t want a bunch of props or crazy scenes in your photos. That’s good. We’re on the same page. Let’s go find an amazing location and focus on what’s important… you!
I take a very laid back approach to senior portraits. I like to go walk around together, see what inspires us and figure out how to make it work for your photos. No matter what, we’re going to have a good time and we’re going to get some good shots.
If you’ve seen enough and want to go ahead and book your session or need more info, contact me to get everything started.
To get a better idea of what kind of variety we can get from a session, I’d suggest you browse through some blog posts:
How much does a session cost? My session fee is $249. That includes my time, basic editing and one 8×10-inch digital image for your yearbook.
Can I buy more digital images, big prints or albums? You sure can! I have ready-made print and digital image packages if you want to save a bit of money or you can buy anything you want a la carte.
When will I get my images? I usually have a sneak peek for you within a few days and have everything ready for you to see within about 2 weeks.
How do I see my images? I love showing them to you in person. It’s always fun to come over to your house, hook my laptop up to your TV and show them to you on the big screen while you relax on your couch. If that doesn’t work, we can meet up in a fun coffee shop, huddle around a table and look at everything there.
How does my image get delivered to the yearbook? I’ll email you the digital image (which you get to keep) and have you deliver the image to the yearbook. You’ll also have to pay any yearbook fees. Most yearbooks will give you submission guidelines that tell you when images are due, what the image requirements are and if there’s a submission fee. If you give me that info, I’ll make sure there’s no problem with your yearbook photo.
What should I wear? That’s a tough one. Most importantly, I want you to be comfortable in whatever you’re wearing. I usually suggest three outfits: one that you’d wear to school, one that’s a little more dressy and one that’s totally you. The totally you outfit is your chance to bust out your sports uniform or favorite Hawaiian shirt.
So you don’t limit me to a certain number of outfits? Not really, but keep in mind, the more times you change, the less time we have to shoot.
When’s the best time to shoot? I love to start my sessions about two hours before sunset. In the middle of summer, that means we start shooting around 7pm. If you wait until school starts when the days are shorter, we might start closer to 5:30 or 6pm.
Where will we shoot? We can shoot in nature or we can shoot in the city. We can wander through forests or we can wander down alleys. I like to find locations as unique as you are. I try not to use the same locations over and over again, which means when we go out for your shoot, we’re hunting for good backgrounds and great light. I’m always on the lookout for new places to shoot, so if you have no idea where to shoot, I do.
Can I bring a friend? Definitely! It’s always nice to have someone along who can make you laugh, give wardrobe advice and get excited about your photos with you. Just an FYI… I’ll probably turn them into my assistant for part of your shoot. Seriously.
Do you have a rep or model program? I sure do! If you’re interested in being a rep or model, you’ll need to get in touch with me at least a month before school gets out for the summer.
Will you touch up my photos? I sure will! My philosophy is that if there’s something on your skin that won’t be there in a month (zits, scratches, bruises, etc), it won’t be in your photos. Otherwise, I don’t do any heavy retouching. I don’t usually mess with flyaways and I promise your skin won’t look like a porcelain doll when I’m finished.
