Paisley Layne Seniors It's Your Time To Shine

Hello Lovely!

My name is Kendra Swalls and I am the owner of Paisley Layne Photography. I have combined my passion for photography with my love of helping young women look and feel amazing, to create the perfect senior portrait experience.

A Paisley Layne portrait session is about more than just creating beautiful pictures. I want you to have fun, get pampered and walk away feeling beautiful, confident and excited. The amazing images you will receive are just the icing on the cake!

Imagine your dream photo shoot, and I'll make it a reality!

All About Your Session

Just like no two people are the same - no two senior sessions are alike. Your session is all about YOU and your unique style and personality. Have fun, get creative and show off the real you!

Pre-Session Consultation

Every session includes a complimentary pre-session consultation. It is not required, but I highly recommend scheduling one. During this meeting we will talk about session locations, wardrobe, hair and make-up ideas and I will answer any questions you have. It's a great opportunity to get to know each other prior to your session.

During Your Session

Every session includes professional hair and make-up with my amazing stylist. She is great at keeping you looking like you, just a slightly polished version.

Your session will typically take place about 2hrs before sunset. This is the ideal time for amazing light and the perfect sunset glow. You may choose up to two locations for your photo shoot, as long as they are within a 10min drive of each other. We don't want to spend precious shooting time driving all over town.

I walk you through each pose so you don't have to worry about a thing. I love getting a mix of posed and candid shots during the session so expect to laugh, dance, move and have fun!

After the Session

After your session I will select the best images to hand edit and present to you during your in-person ordering session. At this time you can look through sample products such as wall art and albums, and choose the Collection that best fits your needs.

What to wear

One of the most stressful parts of getting your picture taken is figuring out what to wear. During your pre-session consultation you are welcome to bring any outfits you are considering for your session. I am happy to offer input as well as let you look through my studio wardrobe closet for anything new and different you might want to wear.

The key to picking the perfect wardrobe for your session is find thing that you feel great in! If you are uncomfortable or just not feeling it, it's going to show in your photos. Bring a few back-up items just in case, and don't forget the shoes and accessories!

Dress for the Location

Make sure the outfits you select match the location you have chosen. You don't want to be in a fancy dress and heels while standing on a dirt road.

Accessorize

Adding a few key accessories can completely transform an outfit. Layers are great for adding texture and color, while the perfect necklace and earrings can polish and complete the look. Feel free to bring lots of options to your session so we can mix and match, and see what looks best.

School Spirit

These are your senior photos, so while you want to feel like a supermodel for a day, you also want to commemorate your high school years. Including a favorite school t-shirt, sports jersey or letter jacket can add a touch of sentimental value to your images.

This is also a great time to show off your hobbies! Bring along your sports gear, musical instrument or art supplies. I love incorporating the things you love into your session!

Locations

With so many great locations in the Dallas/Ft Worth area it can feel a little overwhelming deciding on the ideal one for your session. Don't worry, I am more than happy to make suggestions and work with you to find the perfect spot!

Location Ideas:

- A favorite coffee shop, museum or book store

* Some locations charge an entrance or rental fee which is the client's responsibility to cover

Something Fun!

Did you know that my best friend and I met when we were in Kindergarten? We have been best friends for almost 30 years! While friendships like that don't happen very often, chances are you have a special friend that you can't imagine going through life without. Why not capture that friendship with a Best Friend Session. This is a fun bonus session you can add on to any regular session. Imagine you and your best friend getting all glammed up and having a blast while creating photos that you will cherish forever!

FAQ's

Answers to the questions I know you are dying to ask!

Q. When will my session take place?

A. Most sessions are scheduled in the afternoon/evening, about two hours before sunset. I schedule sessions on weekends and weekday evenings based on availability.

Q. How far in advance should I book my session?

A. Spring and Fall are the busiest times of the year for senior portraits, so if you are wanting a session during that time, I would suggest booking a few months in advance to ensure you get the date you want.

Q. Where do I get my hair & make-up done?

A. My stylist works out of her home studio, my studio or she will travel to you.

Q. Is it cheaper if I do my own hair & make-up?

A. Professional hair and make-up is part of the Paisley Layne experience so I highly recommend taking advantage of working with my stylist. However, if you choose to do your own hair and make-up the price does not change.

Q. Can I bring a friend with me?

A. You are welcome to bring a friend along on your session, however they may not be included in your photo shoot. I offer Best Friend sessions as an add-on to your regular session if you would like a fun way to capture your special friendship.

Q. How long will I have to wait to see my pictures?

A. It typically takes 2-3 weeks to edit and prepare the images for your viewing session. I will post a few images on social media within a few days as a "sneak peek" to help ease the pain of waiting.

Q. Can I purchase just the digitals?

A. I highly suggest purchasing heirloom products such as wall art and albums that won't end up lost in a drawer or buried in a folder on your computer someday. Having tangible memories is a valuable part of the Paisley Layne experience. However, I realize that we live in an electronic age where digital images are valued. Digital files are included in my Junior and Senior Collections, or you can purchase them a la carte.

Q. I am not sure I can afford the collection I want, do you offer discounts?

A. I do not offer discounts, however, I do have a no-interest payment plan option. This allows you to pay your balance in monthly installments. Products will not be delivered until the final payment has been made.
