You can book your session online or by calling the studio directly, you’ll start by paying a session retainer and choosing your session date. Once this is done your session is secured. A senior session is best scheduled before May. This will ensure images being ready to send out those graduation announcements.
Once you have booked your session I’ll contact you for a phone for a consultation. This will give us a chance to get to know each other and I’ll answer any questions you may have about your session. If you have inspirational images that you’d like to capture or share with me, please feel free to send them to me via text 951.294.1059. Please let me know if you would like to stop by the studio to see our portrait products in person. You’ll be able to see and feel their quality & craftsmanship for yourself.
You can bring along as many changes of clothes as you would like. I will help you to pick out what will photograph best. The more choices the better. Also bring along all of the accessories. Hats, jewelry, sunglasses, scarves, shoes, hoodies etc. Bring along anything that is special to you that you'd like to photograph with. Girls should have their hair and makeup done. If you would like a referral to a makeup artist please ask. Be sure to have hands and feet manicured. They are often in the pictures. Iron clothing, it is very difficult to retouch wrinkles. Guys make sure to Shave.
The easy part! All of your preparation is done and you can leave the rest to me! We’ll capture a variety of poses and expressions. Generally you’ll have 30-60 unique concepts to choose from.
About a week after your photo session you’ll return to the studio where you will view your images in a fun slideshow. Together we’ll select the best images from the senior session. By this appointment you should already know whether you will want to purchase wall portraits, albums, digital files or any combination of portrait products. All decision makers must be present as your portrait order will be finalized and paid for at this sales session.
Products take between 2-4 weeks to create. Once your order has been designed by me and printed by my labs, you’ll come back to the studio one final time to review your order finally take your art home to be enjoyed for years to come.
This is the one thing that will always bring you back to your senior year. I know you and your family will look back on these memories of some of your best times. I can't wait to help capture the true you for your senior portrait session!
