Frequently Asked Qs
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Your outfits should reflect your personality and main intersts. I recommend a dressy outfit, then a more casual one. The dressier outfit should be timeless and classic, as it will be something treasured for 20 years or more. Natural, solid colors will photograph the best (blues, greens, grays, whites, black, pink). Think about layers and accessories that can be worn to add a variety of looks per outfit.
HOW DO I BOOK?
Your session is officially booked once you've completed the process of signing the contract and submitting your non-refundable session fee. You must first contact us by submitting the Senior Survey, where I then contact you to setup pre-consultation. You determine if my services and your ideal senior session are a match, then complete the process by booking the session date and the reveal/ordering appointment.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I BUDGET?
My commission fee is $275. My packages start at $499. Each client has different product needs from albums to wall art. The average client spends $2500 and up, based on their product needs. During your reveal session, you can decide what works best for you! This is all discussed during the consultation, so there are no surprises.
HOW DO I PAY?
Payment for the initial session fee will be handled via PayPal online using credit or debit card, or in person. Payment for the final purchase of products and images will take place during your reveal / ordering appointment where you can pay with credit, debit card, Zelle, ApplePay, or check.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
A week before your session date, we will check the whether when confirming your appointment. If it looks like it will rain we will schedule an alternate date just in case it's needed. One day prior to your session, if it continues to look like bad weather, we will reschedule accordingly.
WHAT ABOUT ACNE OR BLEMISHES?
We offer access to an incredible Makeup Artist who specializes in making you look your best. Also, retouching is included in your session fee, for your final images. My editing technique is done in a way that is natural, making your skin appear blemish free. No need to feel self conscious at all, we've got you covered!
WHAT IS REVEAL / ORDERING APPOINTMENT?
This is the most exciting part of the entire experience! You and your parent(s) will come back to view a slideshow of the best images from your session. We will then go through them individually and narrow down to your favorites. I will then assist you in determining which product or package best suites your needs & you will place your order, along with selecting your yearbook image.
DO I GET DIGITAL FILES?
You receive social media sized digital images of every image you order an 8×10 print or larger. (These are not printable) Digital images sized for printing (High Resolution) are available for purchase, and are included in our top two packages.
