Senior Session FAQ’s
As a senior photographer, I’ve heard every question in the book. I completely get it! Excitement and nerves are high! After all, you’ve worked for four long years to get to this point. Now it’s time to celebrate! For those of you who might have some questions or concerns about your upcoming senior session, I’ve compiled a list of FAQ’s.
Q: When should I book my senior session?
I start booking senior sessions in April for the Summer. Slots book up fast, don’t wait until it’s too late.
Q: What location should I choose?
I have plenty of locations I will recommend depending on what look you like.
Q: What types of payment do you accept?
Cash, check or credit card. Payment is due on the day of the session. At this time, per Venmo, Venmo cannot be used for businesses.
Q: How long after my session can I expect to see images?
I will post a sneak peek on Facebook and Instagram within 24 hours. You can share as you like.
Q: When is the best time for photos?
Don’t worry about the clouds, clouds make for great lighting. Trust me for locations and time of day. I know the summer before senior year is hectic. You’re working, sports, commitments. The best time of day for light is 1 hour before the sunsets.
Q: How long will the sessions last?
Senior sessions last 1-2 hours depending on the package you choose.
Q: Can I bring a friend or sibling?
Of course! We can take a few photos of you together.
Q: What if it rains?
I will watch the weather closely as your session approaches. If it looks like rain, we’ll reschedule to a day/time as soon as possible.
How to prep:
Watch your skin exposure leading up to your session. Avoid tan lines and burns.
Don’t neglect nails. Removed chip nail polish.
Don’t fret over blemishes. Blemishes on the face are retouched.
Be bright, don’t be afraid of colors that pop!
Accessorize with jewelry, statement pieces, hats.
Be careful of heavy thick eye makeup/eyeliner. It can make your eyes appear squinty even if they aren’t.
Maybe have your hair and makeup done for your session! I have recommendations for this.
Avoid logos on tees this can be very distracting.
Make sure clothes are not wrinkled.
Be prepared to change quickly.
Start with what you’re most comfortable in.
Mix it up for variety. I like to have my clients bring at least three outfits for their senior session. One dressy, one casual and one that represents a hobby of yours.
If there are any additional questions you have outside of this list, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I’d love to chat.
