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.
What to Expect
Your session will typically take place about 2 hours 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 10 minute drive of each other. We don't want to spend precious shooting time driving all over town. I will give you coaching on posing so you don't have to worry about a thing. I photograph both males and females and I'm comfortable working with both. I love getting a mix of posed and candid shots during the session, so expect to 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 personal preview time. I have a variety of pricing options for you to purchase digital images, albums, prints or wall art. I do not lock you into set collections, and prior to all sessions I will collect the $150 session fee up front regardless of future purchases.
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 help you coordinate outfits. The key to picking the perfect wardrobe for your session is to find things that you feel great in! Plan to pack extra items and accessories as well.
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!
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. I like Glam Beauty Bar in Vancouver, WA ( This is an additional fee if you choose to use them).
Q. Can I bring a friend with me?
A. You are welcome to bring a friend and/or parent along on your session if you would like - I actually prefer it. Having a friend there can help you relax, make you laugh and help you with choosing the best outfits and accessories.
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 personal viewing session.
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 experience. However, I realize that we live in an electronic age where digital images are valued, so you get to choose how you would like to spend your money.
