SENIOR photos that will NEVER look like anyone else's!
Can you believe it?! You're Senior year is here (or almost here!!) This year is going to be over as quick as it started. You'll be so busy with classes, friends, family, hobbies, SAT, job, Senior Project, weekends, college tours, and of course, you'll be scheduling those iconic senior photos! Everyone has them taken but I want to challenge you to RETHINK *your* senior photos.
Ever notice that everybody's photos look the same? Similar trendy clothing, hair and makeup to perfection, guys with the rugged look leaning against a brick wall downtown or holding a sports ball wearing their school jersey. Blah! *Everyone* does those same photos in the same overused locations and it gets monotonous. Why do what everyone else is doing?
This year, instead of senior photos that focus on how cute you look in an outfit, or the scenery, how about having your senior photos tell the STORY of the most awesome YEAR of your life? You'll always reminisce about the fun things that you do this year so document that. Let's schedule a SENIOR LIFE series for you.
A SENIOR LIFE series consists of THREE, 2-hour *themed* sessions to capture your life in motion. Real life, unposed, over the course of the school year, doing what you love with the people you love.
Your THREE, 2-hour sessions include:
A HOME session: What does time at home look like? Do you do homework on your bed surrounded by posters on the wall? Play video games? Work on your car? Help make dinner? Do your laundry (your mom might love seeing that!)? Do you have a garden out back? Do you love lounging by the pool and spending time with your 4-legged friend? What's your routine to get ready to go to school or out for the evening? Do you horse around with your siblings? Regular family game nights or Taco Tuesday? It won't be too long before a dorm room pulls you away from these things that make you feel safe and loved. But I want you to remember those details by having a senior session in the place you grew up with the people who made you who you are today. In this session, we'll help you always remember your life at home when you were 17yo. And let mom know that we'll do a very informal family photo in the last few minutes of this session. Moms love family photos!
A FRIENDS session: Your second session will be with your besties. What do you do when you are hanging out with the gang? I'll go with you when you get pizza and play putt-putt. Do you all go to the lake on Saturday or muddin' or hunting every weekend? Shopping anyone? Or maybe you go skateboarding or play in a band with your buddies. Golf? Bonfire in the backyard? I'll go with you and your friends (and I promise I will try hard not to cramp your style) and we'll photograph you all doing whatever you do.... together!! All too soon, everyone will be going off in different directions and these images will become so important to you.
A CUSTOM session: The THIRD session will be a theme we design together -- custom to include the extras particular to you. Do you work? I'll stop by get some photos of you on the job. Fun hobbies? Do you work out, do yoga, weight lifting? Dance? Let's document you at band, soccer, or cheerleading practice. Do you volunteer at the local animal shelter? Let's photograph it! Participate in Scouts? Model? Let's get photos of you doing the things that make you, YOU!
Let me create SENIOR LIFE photos for you that will never look like anyone else's. And they will tell the STORY of the biggest year in your life.
Scheduling a Senior Year Series will save you 20% off the regular session fees. Session fees cover the photographer's time only. Prints, products, and digital images are purchased separately at your Proofing and Purchasing session 2 weeks after each session.
How do I get started?
Let's talk! A storytelling session is not a traditional posed session so I want to make sure we're a good fit for each other and this type of session is what you really want.
We'll meet for a tea and start planning. Mom and/or dad will come too so everyone knows what to expect since the entire family will be in some of the photos too. A non-refundable $400 fee is due with your contract to add your first session to my calendar. The balance is due 2 weeks before the first session. We'll schedule the other two sessions about 3 months and 6 months later. If you purchase this Series later in the school year, sessions will be closer together. The session fee covers my time only - Prints & products are purchased separately.
I'll send you a questionnaire to help me learn more about you and all the things you love. Mom and dad will have one to complete too!! This helps me know about things to look for during your session.
Approximately 2-3 weeks after EACH session, we'll meet for a Proofing and Purchasing appointment to see your images. This is when you order your favorite prints and products. Albums are the most popular item from these sessions. Payment for items you order is due at that appointment. Clients typically invest $750 - $2500 on products from EACH of their sessions.
