Senior Portrait FAQ
How do we book a session?
Do we get the digital images?
Sure do! There are Digital Images included in every package!
Can you fix blemishes?
Yes, on the photo chosen for the yearbook and the ones for print will be retouched and blemishes removed. All the other images you receive will be professionally edited as well. (Color correction, sharpening, contrast, etc.)
What should we wear?
For senior pictures, I like to get a mix of formal, and casual. But it is your style that is important. I want you to feel comfortable in the photo. I do recommend bringing a variety of clothes and accessories as well, even if we dont use it all.. just so we have options!
Where do we go for photos?
I love to mix it up and start off in town for some "urban" backdrops.... and then head out to a local park (Two Mile, Oil Creek, Cook Forest, Rockland, etc...) anywhere with some nature. But if you have a specific place in mind, we can go there! I have had some clients want to go all the way to Pittsburgh or Erie!
Where the heck do I change???
Good question!! Some locations don't offer anywhere to get changed, and trying to do so in your car can be rather difficult! So.. I bring a pop up changing room to make things much easier and for some privacy as well!
Do you have a studio?
Yes I do! I prefer to shoot senior portraits outdoors, but if you want them in studio, with a back drop, we can do that!
Do you bring Props?
NOPE. I am not a huge fan of props, BUT that doesn't mean YOU can't! If you have something you want in the photo, please bring it! I have seen four wheelers, horses, dogs, rabbits, hockey gear, baseball stuff, football gear, guitars, violins.. and more! If you want to use something for your photos, bring it! :)
What happens if it rains?
If it is raining on the day of our session, we will possibly have to reschedule unless you want to get out the umbrella and rainboots! haha! If not, hopefully there is enough time for things to dry up, then we probably will go for it!
How long do you shoot for?
Depends on the package you choose!
How do I see all my photos?
You will receive an email with a link and password to your online private gallery. That is were you can download all your photos as well!
How do we get Prints?
Professional prints are included in most packages. If you choose The Standard Package, you will get an email with a form to fill out for your included prints, and they will ship straight to you. If you choose Deluxe or Premium, they will be ordered during the in-person Print Session and shipped to you. Any further prints can be ordered from the gallery or a lab of your choosing with the print release.
How long does it take until we see our pictures?
It really varies depending on the time of year. The average wait time is around 10 to 14 days for the gallery to be up. In the fall, possibly a little longer. But, 99% of the time, you will get a few sneak peeks on social media before.
Do you travel?
Yes! Anything over 20 miles from the Oil City/Franklin area is $1.25 per mile.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes! I encourage it! It helps to have a friend for sure. Plus, they can help out with hair and wardrobe issues, etc.
How do we pay you?
The session fee can be paid prior, or day of. If you prefer to pay with a credit card, just let me know in advance and I can email you an invoice. Cash or check is accepted on the day of the shoot.
