SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION FAQs
WHY SHOULD I HAVE EVER AFTER PORTRAITS TAKE MY SENIOR PORTRAIT?
You’ve reached a milestone in your life. Your portraits should reflect your unique personality. You’re not the same old Sara from down the street, so why should your Senior portraits look like hers?! What you need is something that only an artist can produce.
The other studios (you know, the ones that your school sends you to) employ a large staff of photographers to fulfill their volume needs. This is perfectly all right if you want some novice who’s been trained on the bare minimum of the technical aspects of photography. They understand lighting and posing and how to make a ‘nice portrait.’ The only problem is that they all look alike!
We’re different. We are dedicated to our craft and are constantly developing new techniques and submitting images for reviews by some of the top professionals in the industry. We have a network of hair and makeup artists at our disposal for that extra sizzle in your portraits as well!
Your interests, hobbies, and personality will shine through your portraits with us. We encourage you to bring your favorite item to use as a prop. We can photograph you with your car, pet, musical instrument, or favorite sports item. We offer a spacious private changing and makeup room for your convenience. Got a favorite CD you want to listen to during your in studio session? Bring it! It’s your session and you should have fun.
We do special one-on-one portraits of seniors. You can change clothing, right in the studio or choose a garden or other local location.
HOW MANY CLOTHING CHANGES CAN I DO?
For our Signature Senior Session, you can have up to 5 wardrobe changes.
CAN I INCLUDE MY FRIENDS IN MY PORTRAITS?
Certainly! We have done Seniors with their best friends.
CAN I BRING MY FRIENDS WITH ME TO THE SHOOT?
We don’t mind you having one parent or friend along – in fact, it can make things even more interesting. However, please, no more than one. These pictures are about you and we want to be able to concentrate on you, rather than working with a large group. If you really want a group picture with several friends, we ask that you let us know so that we can plan for it ahead of time and make sure that your friends know that they will be leaving after the group pictures are done. If it’s sprung on us the day of the shoot, we’ll decline. We want to avoid distractions that prevent us from doing our very best for you. If you do have a friend or parent along, tell them to be prepared to work! Watching for stray hairs, helping hold reflectors, watching for people in the background, you name it!
ARE MY PICTURES TOUCHED UP OR AIRBRUSHED?
All our Senior portraits have finishing work performed on them to remove blemishes and make you look your best.
DO YOU OFFER BLACK AND WHITE PICTURES?
Yes, we offer contemporary, modeling looks for that special portrait.
CAN I HAVE MY PORTRAIT SESSION BE BOTH OUTSIDE AND INSIDE?
Outdoor and indoor portraits have very different technical and creative requirements and so are considered separate sessions with separate session fees if you choose to do both.
