Frequently Asked Questions:

When and where will our session take place?

Time and location make a huge difference in the outcome of your images. All of my senior sessions are scheduled during a time of best lighting. If your schedule does not accommodate my preferred session time, I will work with you to get you the same quality photos you deserve during a different time of day. We will work together to choose a location based on your personal style and preference. Whether you want mountainous scenery or an urban backdrop, I always love working with your vision to achieve your desired outcome. If you can't make up your mind, we can always discuss photographing at multiple locations so you receive a variety of images.

What should I wear to our session?

Choosing your outfits is one of the most important decisions you will make. After booking your session, I will send you a complete style-guide to help you make decisions about color choices, seasonal outfits, and how to bring out your personality through your choice of wardrobe. Many seniors that book a session choose to have an outfit change. Many of these represent their hobbies and talents, in addition to a casual outfit for the season.  

Is hair and make-up really a necessity?

I understand choosing add-ons based on budget. However, I highly recommend that ladies choose to add this option. Your senior session experience is a one-of-a-kind rite of passage that helps you celebrate your next chapter. When you choose to have your hair and make-up professionally done, you will receive a celebrity treatment that is fun and brings out the best of you! You will rock your session and will love seeing your confidence shine in your images. 

Why are your senior packages more expensive than your regular family packages?

When you book a session with Senior Chapter, you will get a completely unique and personal photo experience. Unlike my family sessions, we will have a phone consultation to begin planning your custom session. I will be with you every step of the way! You will receive a complete style-guide to assist you in planning your session. I will make every effort along the way to customize your session to fit your personality and style. Your personalized experience doesn't stop after our session is complete. Each of your individual images will be examined closely for quality and will receive more detailed retouching than my traditional packages. Finally, we have an in-person image reveal where you will choose your final digitals, yearbook submission, and munch on treats. I treat all of my family and senior packages as if they are my own memories and will always strive to offer the best.   

When and how will I receive my images?

Image quality is important to me and I will always take my time to ensure you receive images you love. I ask for thirty days after our session for final gallery delivery. Not all of my sessions take this long, but it is common during my busy season, so be sure to plan accordingly with your high school deadlines. Should you need your images sooner than that, I offer a rush delivery fee. The quality of your images will not be sacrificed, but you will just get your session bumped up in line. You will receive all of your digitals via an online gallery. You can download and share this gallery. We will have an optional in-person final viewing consult. At this time, you will choose your final digital images and yearbook submission.

Do you submit my yearbook photo?

 Should you wish for me to submit your final yearbook image, it is your responsibility to request that I do so. I WILL NOT send any submissions in without your prior request. I ask that you provide me with all school paperwork and deadlines, so I can successfully submit your photo. 

Do you offer discounts?

Your senior portrait experience is special and I offer packages to fit any budget. Unlike my family sessions and seasonal promotions, these will not be discounted. However, you have the opportunity to partake in my Senior Referral and Model Programs to earn a special discount and rewards.  I also offer a seasonal portrait package that has multiple discounted sessions to document your senior year in its entirety! These are signature sessions provided only by Senior Chapter!
