What do I need to bring?

Bring a solid black and a solid white top, the style doesn't matter. Bring several of your favorite outfits, it’s good to have about 10 complete outfits together including coordinated jewelry, shoes and accessories/props, while we won’t use them all, it’s good to have a variety to choose from. Bring lots of accessories-hats, sunglasses, jewelry, and headbands… Make sure your clothes are ironed and lint free-we recommend bringing them on hangers.

Bring your prom/homecoming or evening dress if you have one. If you have a letterman jacket, play a sport, or are involved in a group/activity bring your uniform and workout clothes as well as any props (football, soccer ball, sheet music if you are in band or choir…). Make sure at least one of your outfits fits the yearbook requirements-check with your school for details on their guidelines.

Who all should come to the shoot? Can I bring a friend/family member?

We do not encourage anyone not in the photograph to come to your session. Our senior sessions are can involve hours of standing, moving, walking. Studio space is limited and we feel like additional friends and family will only be a distraction rather than a help.

Will these images be posted online or any social networks?

Session images will be posted online once you have placed your portrait order. Some images may also be posted to our senior facebook page.

How many photos do you typically take during the session?

We typically shoot up to 150 images during a normal session. This number varies depending on the number of activities and requested poses.

How many photos will I receive?

You will receive up to 20+ images with your 5x5 press printed album.

Do you offer professional retouching?

Basic retouching is included with all orders. This includes blemish removal and softening of skin. Any other retouching will require a custom artwork quote such as glass glare, braces, severe acne, or tan line removal.

How long does it take to get the photos back?

Our normal turnaround time for portraits is 2 weeks.

Do you have a hair/makeup artist that I need to use or do I need to provide that myself?

We will provide a makeup artist for your full session. Hair mist be taken care of on your end.
