The Senior Session Prep Guide
I am so excited for your upcoming Senior Session! For some of you, this may be your first time having a professional portrait session! If it is, do not worry about being nervous. I am here to show you how to pose and I will make sure you have an amazing Senior Experience.
Location • Time
Location: I have some fun locations that would be great for your senior session, but I am open to shooting in new locations. Together, we will decide on the best location for your photos. If you need help deciding on a location I can definitely give you suggestions based on your personality, style and attire.
Time: The images in my gallery look the way they do largely because of my use of light. The time of day your session takes place has a huge impact. Since we will be shooting outdoors, we will shoot either in the morning or in the evening. The light is typically too harsh mid day (unless there is an overcast). Depending on the location, the typical times for shoots will either be around 2 hours after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset.
What To Wear
Your wardrobe should be flattering, comfortable and reflect YOUR personal style! Some seniors like to choose a mix of dressy and casual attire for their sessions. If you have dressy/formal attire that you want to wear, bring it! If you need help with your attire, I am happy to consult you directly on wardrobe.
I do not provide the use of props for my sessions, however if you have something in mind that you would like to bring, please let me know. If you decide to bring props, think of things that relate to your hobbies or extracurricular activities that you are involved in. If you decide not to bring props, that is totally fine too!
For The Girls: Use this session as an excuse to get your hair and makeup professionally done. I want you to look and feel your absolute best.
Prepare Yourself: To get the most out of your session, make sure you are well rested and hydrated.. It is not a fun experience if you are tired and hungry during the session.
Please arrive on time or be ready to start on time.
Remember, your session is scheduled according to light. It is important that we start on time. Please plan for traffic or parking constraints. It is best to arrive early.
After The Session
Within 2 weeks of your session, you will receive a private gallery of your beautiful images! The 1.5 hour session will yield 70-100+ images, and the 30 minute session will yield 20 images of your choice with the option to purchase additional downloadable images (or the entire gallery) upon viewing the gallery. A special discount code will be available for additional downloads and for ordering professional prints!
I can't wait to photograph you! Do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
