It's your senior year and you want to celebrate this special time in your life by documenting your senior year with a senior portrait session! But everyone has a phone that takes pretty good photos or maybe some of your friends are dabbling in photography so you might think they could just take your photo! But the truth is not everyone with an iphone or even a camera is a great photographer! And you don't want to entrust your senior photo shoot to just anyone with a nice camera....you want a professional!
As a professional photographer, I have years of experience with capturing this special time in a teenagers life. I have perfected my craft by developing an experience that allows me to get to know each and every one of my clients and give them a photo shoot that tells their unique story.
There is more to capturing a senior and telling their story through a camera than simply clicking the shutter. Here are five reasons to book a pro for your senior photos:
I have the right equipment and the skills! To consistently capture beautiful senior photos, you need more than a fancy camera. I have heard it before, "your camera takes really great photos!" But the truth is the camera is only part of the equation. It takes skills to know what shutter speed, what angle, and what light works best for senior photos. I've learned to manipulate light so you get a variety of lighting and not just one type.
I work exclusively with professional make up artists! You may know lots of cool tricks for makeup after watching all those youtube tutorials (I love them too!) but knowing exactly what and how much to apply for a photo shoot can be more difficult. It takes more than just applying more of your everyday makeup and hiring a professional is an important part in making sure you look your best for your senior photos. The hair and makeup team I work with knows exactly how to make sure they apply the right amount and the right product for camera while keeping you looking like you - natural and confident. And let's face it, who doesn't love to feel pampered and not have to stress about hair and makeup for their photos?
You don't have the same locales as everyone else. Want a sofa in a field? I will find one and put it there. Want a special style of location or theme? We will create it. I LOVE using new locations, props, wardrobe...I like eclectic and hence I don't just shoot in fields or farms but you name it and I will shoot at it - if the lighting permits and shooting is allowed.
You don't have to worry about a thing!! When hiring me for your senior photos, I will take care of everything for you! I schedule everything and keep you in the loop. As a senior, you are busy with school, sports, college applications and more so you don't have time to worry about making appointments or stressing about any part of the process. I will walk you through every step, provide tons of information that will answer any and all questions you might have and plan your session to fit your unique personality including picking the perfect location and helping you with what to wear.
Your images can be transformed into works of art! Digital images are great and most teens want to be able to share their senior photos on social media - you will love the mobile app for that. But you also have the ability to create works of art from your photos and parents especially love this! Photos are meant to be displayed and with the different product options I offer, you and your parents can pick the products that best suit your needs.
You are only a high school senior once! You deserve to be celebrated and invested in! You have worked hard over the past 12 years and while it may have seemed like it took an eternity to get here, this moment will not last forever. By hiring a professional you are giving yourself the gift of capturing this special time and all you have accomplished, documenting who you are at this moment and you will be able to look back and cherish every aspect of being a senior.
