Interested in booking a senior session with me? That’s awesome! Here’s what you can expect!
The first step in the process is booking a consultation. This is a no strings attached meeting in the coffee shop of your choice where we can connect. I want to get to know you, hear your vision for your session and learn what makes you tick! You want to get to know me as well and review my products and style to see if I’m a good fit for what you hope to achieve.
Booking a Date
Next, if you like what you see during your consultation, we will choose a date for your session! We will review your goals and pick a date and location perfectly suited to your needs. If the weather takes a nasty turn, have no fear; we will reschedule your session. If you’re the adventurous type, we will do the session anyway! (Think cute photos with umbrellas, rain boots & mud puddles).
Hair & Makeup
Most of my seniors seem to prefer doing their own hair and makeup, however, I strongly encourage you to hire a professional. This will ensure you are camera ready and will make the whole experience extra special. I partner with various hair and makeup artists and they do amazing work.
Leading up to the session, I encourage my clients to text me their outfit ideas. This helps me plan the session and helps you get organized. On the session day, I arrive at your location of choice ready to shoot. I have a pop-up changing room which allows you to change anywhere. My goal is for you to have fun; to make you feel comfortable and feel like a fashion model. This is your moment. Having recently had my photos taken for updated headshots, I know how unnerving it is to have a camera pointed at you. Take a deep breath and relax. I will make sure you look amazing. As the shoot progresses, I will occasionally show you the back of my camera so you can see just how breathtaking you are. By the end of the session, your confidence will soar to the point you will be rocking every shot like America’s Next Top Model!
After the Session
You’ve nailed your photo shoot, so what comes next? This is the most exciting part! We will schedule your Reveal & Order Session. This usually takes place 1-2 weeks after your session. We will meet in my office, and you will see all of your images in a beautiful slideshow. Then, you will choose what you would like to order and we begin the process of choosing your favorite images. In my office, you will have the opportunity to view samples of all my art displays. Should you choose wall art, I also have software that can show you exactly what the artwork will look like in your home. This will give you the confidence to know you are ordering the right size for your space. I love when all your beautiful art pieces start arriving! There’s nothing like holding an actual print. It’s tangible, not just one of the millions on a flickering screen. It has a place, a life all its own.
