Seniors - Frequently Asked Questions
How early do I need to book my photo session?
It is tempting to wait until mid to late spring to book your senior picture session but this can actually lead to an issue as you get close to graduation and things start to get very busy. The best option is to book in mid to late winter to secure a spot in early spring. After each session, it is best to allow 2 weeks for custom post processing and 3 weeks for print delivery.
What should I wear for my senior photos?
Each senior portrait session includes an in-person design consultation where we will discuss wardrobe, location, etc. However, for most sessions it is best to choose one formal outfit and one casual outfit at least. It is best to avoid loud patterns such as polka dots and chevron as well as screen printed t-shirts with logos and writing. These items often distract from the face of the subject. It is also best to avoid neon colored shirts as they tend to cast color onto the face.
Who can come to my senior portrait session?
You are welcome to bring a friend with you to your senior photo session, and we always require one parent or guardian to be present for high school images. (Whomever is paying for the session should have a say in what we are creating.) You may choose to include a pet in your session, in which case, there must be someone on hand to handle the pet during the times that you are being photographed without the pet.
How long is the turnaround?
Your ordering appointment will be scheduled within a 2 week window of your sitting. Depending on what you choose, your custom artwork will be ready within 2-4 weeks from your ordering appointment. Please allow extra time if you request in-depth retouching. If you need your images rushed, please be sure to communicate your needs ahead of time so that we can best serve your needs!
