High School Senior Portrait FAQs

 

How many outfits can I be photographed in?

-Our full In Studio sessions allow time for you to be photographed in up to 3 different outfits.   

If you choose an outdoor park session, you will be photographed in one outfit as there are no dressing rooms.   

We want your photographs to represent you.  Choose flattering clothes that fit well, have lots of texture and are in your favorite colors.  Don't forget to match your shoes to the outfit because you will be photographed in all kinds of poses from headshots to full length. 

For pictures taken outside, neutral tones like black, navy, charcoal, cream and brown work well. Choosing clothing with texture and layering always looks great.

Can I have my pictures taken outside?

-We photograph at several local parks in the spring, summer and fall.  See our website for dates and locations available.  Just let us know when you schedule your appointment if you want to be photographed in the studio or outdoor.

 

How many pictures do you take?

-Our photographers love to capture the many sides of you, they will take a lot of great pictures.  Most sessions have anywhere from about 40-60 images to choose from.

 

What types of backgrounds are used in the studio?

-Our studios have many different background options available and the photographer will coordinate them to compliment your clothing color and style.

 

What if I just need a picture for the yearbook?

-No problem, we can do that too.  Just let us know when you schedule your appointment and we will schedule you for a one outfit yearbook session.  This session usually takes about 10-20 minutes and you will get about 10-15 images to select from.  You will select the image for the yearbook, we will send it to our lab to be retouched and sized to the yearbook specifications, please allow 5-7 days for this.  If you need it quicker, let us know and we will try to work with you.  Once ready, we can email the image to you or you can stop by and pick up a copy of it on disc.

 

When will I be able to view the images from my photo session?

-Generally we like you to view the images right after your photo session. At that time, you will select and pay for the portrait package of your choice. We will then upload your images to our Online viewing site so that you can go home, relax and make your selections over the next few weeks.  If you purchase a package with the images on disc, we will burn the disc for you before you leave.  Orders are usually ready for pick up in about 2 weeks.

 

Is retouching included?

-Yes, a natural (not-over-the-top) retouch to the face is included on all images that you order prints from as well as the yearbook photo. We will remove acne, soften lines under eyes and smooth out the skin tone for a natural finished look.  Want more extensive retouching?  Just ask and we can give you a quote for any additional cost.
