Booking and Logistics:

  • When should I book my session?

Ideally, aim to book 3-6 months in advance, especially during peak seasons like spring and fall.


  • What happens after I book?

Most photographers will send you a confirmation email with details like location suggestions, outfit recommendations, and a contract to sign.


  • What happens if it rains on my session day?

Don’t stress!

We will touch base the day of the session and decide of the weather is bad enough to reschedule.

We can also look at a backup plan like finding an alternate location.


Planning and Preparation:

Aim for variety and comfort!

When picking outfits, try to choose outfits that reflect your style and personality.

Here is a link to specific ideas and my top three recommendations for all seniors!

Absolutely we do!

There are several stylists we recommend to help make you feel like a million bucks – feel free to ask and we’ll be happy to share!

Alternatively, you can choose to do your own hair and makeup.

Props can add a personal touch and tell a piece of your high school story.
Just ensure they coordinate with your outfits and don’t overpower the overall look.

    • Letter Jacket
    • Personalized Signs
    • Balloons/Confetti (always a good idea!)
