Uponagreeing on date and location I will send you a payment request. This serves as a retainer for the date you selected (no dates will be held without a session fee payment). Do NOT delay!

A $200 retainer is required to secure your date (this fee is transferable but non-refundable). The session fee includes the consultation (vision board and styling), sitting fee, editing time and in-person viewing & ordering session (the session fee is transferrable but not refundable).
A print minimum of $600 is required and is due one week prior to the session. This will count asa credit towards any purchases you make. Although the print minimum is $600, most clients choose to invest between $600-$3,500+ into their senior portrait experience, with the average being around $2,200 (that includes the print minimum).

Q. Should I have my hair and make up done by a professional?
Absolutely! It is required. These images are an investment, so definitely pay a little extra for hair and makeup! Not only does it take the stress off of you, but a professional stylists will apply the right amount of makeup and style your hair that photographs well. My glam squad team is familiar with what photographs well and will make sure that you still remain your authentic self.

If you want to switch up your look for later on in the session, just let me know and we can discuss bringing one of the artist along with us.

Well, Occasionally we are lucky and have a restroom nearby. However, that is not always the case. Be prepared to change in the car. I have dark tinted windows and loads of room.

This is where we get to dig deep and start with a vision board. Some of you have been planning your senior session since you were freshman and some of you don’t know where to begin. No need to worry. We will get creative and I can assure you that your session will reflect YOU and your personality! We will share ideas back and forth and plan every detailtogether.
