This year I’m offering a gallery reveal and ordering session after your senior portraits. I’m super excited about this service because I know how hard it can be to order prints from an online gallery.
Before your senior portrait photoshoot I’ll send an email with a few dates so we can schedule your gallery reveal and ordering session. Generally it will be 1-2 weeks after your shoot. Depending on how busy I am it could be 3-4 weeks. I don’t want you to have to wait to see your amazing photos so we’ll pick the earliest date possible.
For the gallery reveal and ordering session I will come to your home. The great thing is that you won’t have to agonize over what to buy or imagine what sizes of prints look like…I’m there to help you through this process so you get exactly what you want. You’ll get to touch and feel a Lookbook, the Signature Album, the Signature Storyboard and all the print finishes and sizes. It’s a great time to walk around your house holding up different sizes to the walls and decide what will fit best.
In the top two collections you’ll get every image from your gallery on a USB with print rights. This is so that you have a copy of your images in case anything catastrophic happens. I only archive sessions for 1 year because image files are so large that I can’t possibly keep every image from every session forever. And I’d hate for something to happen to your beautiful big prints and realize it was irreplaceable.
Speaking of which, this is another key decision point when deciding on a senior photographer. Plenty of senior photographers offer only digitals or only prints. I like a combination so that you get the best of both. It’s all fun to have a photoshoot and see the gorgeous images in an online gallery but then what happens to them? If you only get digitals from your photographer then they live in a folder on your computer? Not for my clients! If you are investing the time, energy and money for a professional photographer you should walk away with more than a few digital files.
Once we’ve chosen your collection and the images for each product we’re done! The whole session should take about an hour. If you’ve ever gotten a link to an online gallery you know you spent way more than an hour deciding what prints to buy. This saves you time and you’ll know exactly what you’re getting. I’ll send you an invoice that evening for the collection and any extras you may have chosen. Once the invoice is paid in full I’ll place the order for your products with my lab. Any custom design items will have proofs sent for your approval of course. Easy peasy!
I want your images be part of your life. I want them on your walls so everyday you can look at that one picture you love of yourself. These photos are more than just an image for the yearbook, these are photos you’ll look back on in decades to come. These are photos your friends and family will look back on too. I still have wallets from my friends’ senior pictures in high school. I think that is important. I want you to love your images, love your prints, love seeing them on your walls and love giving professional quality prints to friends and family.
