Step 1: Portrait Studio Free Consultation
You, your parent or guardian, and I meet at our senior portrait studio. Some topics we’ll cover:
Your interests, personality, likes and dislikes
- How you plan to use your senior portraits – albums, collages, prints, graduation announcements, and/or art for your home
- Session and location options
- Clothing – what looks good and what doesn’t
- Lighting and posing
Special props, e.g. sports equipment, band instruments, costumes
Step 2: Optional In-Home Consultation
I come your house to see the decor and take pictures of the walls to help you envision how your images will look in your house. Or if you prefer, you can just send your wall images to the portrait studio via your cell phone.
Step 3: Portrait Session
Two or three days before your portrait session, I call you to confirm your appointment and answer any last minute questions. No matter which Portrait Session you choose, you have my full attention. We’ll take our time and experiment with poses and props. You’ll love the experience and you’ll feel like a star!
Step 4: Viewing & Ordering Session
Two weeks after your portrait session, you come back to the studio to see your images. Utilizing state-of-the-art software , we project your images, life-size, on a movie screen, while enjoying snacks. You and your parent decide what you want to order. You will find this experience really enjoyable!
Step 5: Order Pickup
Typically, it takes six-eight weeks to complete your order. I inspect your order when it arrives at the studio for any imperfections. Once I’m satisfied that it meets my high quality standards, I call you to schedule a pickup appointment. I prefer that you come in so that in case you or your parent isn’t completely thrilled with your order, I can take care of any problems right away.
Step 6: Lifetime Enjoyment
You and your family will love your portraits!
