About Your SENIOR Portrait Session | Santa Clarita Senior Portrait Photographer

In line with last week’s blog post, I decided to also highlight the most frequently asked questions about senior portrait sessions.  2012 seniors…it’s your turn!!!  Here’s everything you need to know (and don’t forget to apply to be a Senior Rep and receive your senior portrait session for FREE!).

SCHEDULING
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.
CONSULTATION

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.


LOCATION

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. 


TIME

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,
interchangeable 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.  

Please note that I retain the copyright to each image.
Print and/or web publishing rights are granted when you
purchase your images on a CD.
