CELEBRATE! You're a senior!

Having senior photos taken is WAAAAAY different than getting school pictures.

It's an experience.

It's a special day.

It's a day where you get to model ... and play in front of the camera... and change outfits ... and get amazing photographs of yourself that you never thought possible!

I like to get to know you beforehand so we can tailor the shoot to highlight what makes you tick.

We may do some indoor studio shots that are classic and timeless, then go outdoors - maybe overlooking the city and mountains, maybe in beautiful landscape, or maybe downtown with an urban feel.

I'll help you choose clothing that works best with photography and flatters you the most. Do you have a favorite outfit, a prom dress, a suit, a fun hat, or athletic gear that you want to highlight?

Let's do it! We can be creative and have fun!

Here's how to prepare:

  1. Call me for a free phone consultation
  2. Optional meet up ahead of time where we can dream up ideas, think about locations, pick out clothing, and you can see what cool products are available to show off your new gallery of images.
  3. Pick out several outfits you feel confident in. Make sure some of them are long sleeve. You can bring solid colors, layers, a bold pattern, white shirt, black shirt, hats, dresses or suits, athletic gear, accessories.... whatever you think would be fun. Feel free to text me ideas to get my honest feedback.
  4. Avoid clothing with words and logos- please!
  5. Remember that your shoes will show in full body shots, so choose some that look nice.
  6. Let me know if you're interested in a hair and make-up artist. I have connections.
  7. Relax and have fun during your shoot. Being nervous or tense will only make it harder on you, so just take a deep breath and enjoy the process! I promise you'll love the photos, and we can delete anything you don't love. Bring your best friend and get a shot together and have them make you laugh!
  8. Get some good sleep and drink water to stay hydrated before the shoot.
  9. Bring water and a snack to the shoot in case you need a little boost.
  10. Bring any decision makers to the reveal session where I show you a slideshow of all the best images. This is the best part! You'll get to choose your favorite image for the yearbook and have the option of purchasing other prints in an album, or for your wall.

When should I get them done?

Schools usually require that you submit your yearbook photos in September or October of your senior year. Don't wait until September! You don't want to be scrambling to get them done in time. The best time is the summer before your senior year. June, July or August. Call me at 719-822-7523 to schedule today!
