There are so many options for your senior shoot. Your first decision...
Am I the right photographer for you? High school seniors are some of my favorite people to work with, and I specialize in agriculture. So if you are incorporating livestock into your photos, and love being out in the country, I'm your girl!
Your next question is...
What time of year is your favorite and where will you want to have your shoot?
It all depends on your favorite season for the locations that you choose. I am a pro at helping with this!
And your final question for now...
How many hours will you want to shoot for. This depends on location, number of outfits and whether or not we are incorporating animals or other props. Please contact me and we can discuss all the details! I am happy to travel to your location or we can go to a location of your choice.
HOW MANY OUTFITS CAN I BRING?
As many as you want (within reason ;) I have had kids bring their whole closet and others bring two shirts, (boys I'm talking to you)! I prefer you to pack 4-6 outfits per hour of shooting time. This gives us a nice variety. We don't have to use all of them. Time can be used up quickly making decisions on what to wear so have your outfits, accessories, and shoes planned out. Bring only your most loved clothing and make sure you feel comfortable and confident in it.
HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION TAKE?
This will be up to you! I offer a one hour, two hour, and three hour session option. But if you want to shoot for longer, I'm down with that. From each hour of shooting you will receive between 20-30 proofs that you can sort through and create the order of your digital files from.
WHAT IS A DIGITAL FILE?
From your paper proofs you will choose the ones you like the best. From here you will receive a digital file. This file is a digital version of the image that I have fully edited, color corrected, and released as a copyright-free file (meaning you have unlimited printing rights). You will receive your digital files via a link that you can download and print from.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE MY PICTURES?
After the shoot I choose the best images, adjust them for color and crop, and send them off to a lab to be printed. This process takes about two weeks.
HOW WILL I CHOOSE MY LOCATIONS?
I always tell kids to choose a place that has special meaning to you. It can be your family ranch or maybe where your family likes to go camping. With that being said, I have scouted many locations over the years that are amazing for photos. I will help you through this process of choosing locations when we meet for your pre-session consult.
