It Starts With A Consultation
Senior portraits start with an in person consultation. We’ll meet up with your parents and talk details. We’ll go over every step of the experience so you know what to expect. We’ll also gab over the fun stuff…wardrobe,accessories and makeup. I’ll bring some samples of my products so you can see how the gorgeous images of you will be displayed on your walls for years to come. After the consultation if you think we’ll be a good fit, you’ll pay the $150 session fee and send me a signed copy of the contract. Both you and your parents will need to sign. And now you’ve got a date!
Leading up to your portrait session I’ll be in touch through emails with tips for how to choose your outfits and how to have flawless skin. A week before your session I’d love for you to send me pics of your outfit choices if you want help to narrow down to your top 3-4 outfits. I can suggest accessories to turn 3 outfits into 10 different looks…which will be much easier to carry around on location. I’ll remind you to ensure your clothes are freshly laundered, pressed, lint and pet hair free. All those tiny details can detract from the focus of the picture….your beautiful self!
The Big Photoshoot
The day of the session I’ll be at the location early, I like to scout the location so that we have a nice flow with changing backgrounds. And knowing which outfits you are bringing I can pre-plan which would go well with different spots. Bring a parent or friend to your photoshoot! They can help carry your wardrobe and help spot any flyaway hairs or wardrobe malfunctions. Plus I may put them to work holding a reflector from time to time. Most of my sessions are in parks or public locations but no need to worry about changing out in the open. I have a pop up changing tent so you can do a full quick change without flashing strangers. Bring along your cell phone, like I could stop you right?, and we’ll sync up to my bluetooth speaker and play some music to get comfortable in front of the camera. Of course the whole time I’ll be showing you how to pose. No need to know what you are doing, that’s why you hire a professional photographer! I’m here to guide you through so your images come out amazing!

Your Gallery Reveal & Ordering Session
After your session we’ll set a date for your gallery reveal. Generally 1-2 weeks after your session I’ll come to your home with your images professionally edited and we’ll go through them together. Talk about which images you like, which you’d like to order and which you’d like for your yearbook photo. Collections have been curated with both the teenager and the parent in mind.

I provide some awesome products that are modern and unique, such as the Lookbook. This contains all your gallery images in a magazine. It’s like an album but nowhere near as stuffy. Albums can be expensive and you’d never take it out of your home. But this Lookbook could easily travel with you to school to show off all your gorgeous images! Another unique product is the Signature Storyboard. This is perfect for your graduation party as a guestbook! Everyone can sign the edge and in the middle is a collage of images from your portrait session. Super fun and the mounting board has a key back to easily hang on the wall. Of course I offer professional gift prints as well. Very popular with the parents and grandparents. These prints are from a professional printer based in Colorado and are archival quality. At your gallery reveal you’ll place your order with me for a minimum of $500 or purchase a collection. Print collections start at $595 and digital collections start at $795. Your order will be delivered to you when it arrives about 2-3 weeks after your ordering session. Then I’ll submit your yearbook image to your school. And you’re all set! Of course you can purchase more prints or products at a later date, just contact me to load your gallery for a small fee. The spring before graduation you may want personalized graduation cards! I have some gorgeous card templates and will send my catalog with plenty of time for you to order before graduation.
