Attention Santa Clarita-area high school seniors: have you scheduled your senior portraits yet?
Don’t miss your chance to document this amazing milestone in your life! Senior portraits capture a time in your life full of fun times and new experiences. They show off your personality, sense of style, and emphasize who you are and where you are going.
So what do you need to know?
Please schedule your session as far in advance as possible. Ideally, your Senior Portrait Session should be scheduled at least 6 months prior to your date of graduation.
Your session includes an in-person consultation prior to your session. During this consultation, we will discuss the art direction for your session including clothing choices, location, props you would like incorporated, editing options / overall feel and/or style of the images.
All photography sessions are on-location using natural light. Show your personality through the location you choose; from the beach to the mountains to the desert. Sessions generally take place in the Santa Clarita Valley, however I travel anywhere within Los Angeles County or Ventura County (locations requiring travel beyond 15 miles from my home zip code of 91354 will require an additional $30 per 15 mile increment). I am happy to provide a list of great locations, however I am open to client suggestions, whether it be a park, urban area, or even the client’s home.
Sessions last between 1 – 2 hours and are generally scheduled in the morning or early evening hours.
WHAT TO WEAR
Your clothing is another way to show your personality and sense of personal style. In the case of Senior Portraits, I highly recommend being creative and combining basic, interchangable clothing items with funky accessories such as hats, jewelry, scarves, shoes, or belts. A splash of color or pattern on an accessory (hat, scarf, etc.) will help to show personaility and add interest, but not in an overpowering way. It is best to avoid logos, decals, stripes, and solid white clothing.
Feel free to bring up to two additional changes of clothes, but please note that I cannot guarantee a changing facility, so please plan accordingly.
HAIR AND MAKEUP SERVICES
Hair and makeup services are available through professional stylist Sara K. Sara’s specialties include hair, eyebrows, makeup, threading, nails, and nail art. If this option is added to your Senior Portrait Session, both Sara and I will arrive at your home prior to your session to work together to create the perfect look for you.
Please inquire regarding specific pricing and availabiltiy.
AFTER THE SESSION
Each photograph, both in proof and final form, will be hand-edited / retouched. I have a professional background in graphic design, affording me the ability to use advanced methods to retouch your photos. Scratches, rashes, blemishes, and uneven skin are easily fixed. Minor adjustments can also be made at the client’s request (i.e. black and white, sepia, etc.).
Within 2 – 3 weeks following your session, you will receive a password to access your sharable online proof gallery via the Client Proofing section of this website. Your online proof gallery will contain 15 – 20 retouched images, as well as both a la carte and package purchasing options. Your online proof gallery will be accessible for 2 weeks from the date your receive your password.
