No! Your online gallery includes the ability to download high resolution images. You can even share your gallery link with family and friends and they have the ability to also download, order prints and view all the photos as they please.
Senior Sessions scheduling is totally up to you. Most year book ads are due in October/November of your senior year so students typically book their session the summer before or fall of their senior year. Others choose to wait until spring of their senior year and use them as informal graduation announcements. If booking an outdoor session, the best time of day lighting wise is the “golden hour” and hour before sunset when the light is softer and the temperature is more moderate,
but we can always find shade and make the light work for us.
You'll need to email email@example.com to schedule your session. During the peak season (October - December) it is a good idea to book 3-4 weeks in advance. Session can be schedule on weekdays Monday through Thursday typically two hours before sunset.
Yes! Definitely! I encourage seniors to bring a casual outfit and a dressier outfit. Some prefer to have an outfit in their new school colors if you know where you are going to school.
Yes! My dogs are my children so I get it. Try to have a plan in place and be realistic about expectations. If your dog is not well trained, getting a posed photo will not happen. Make sure to think through the logistics of having pets in some photos and pets not in some photos. Is it too hot for the dog to wait in the car? Can you pet wait patiently to the side? If so, maybe having a family member not in photos or friend to help would be good.
Weather can change quickly especially in Alabama. I typically don’t make
the cancellation call until the day of your session. Even if it is raining an hour before your
session time, the weather can clear up and result in amazing lighting, with picturesque cloudsand even a rainbow. Your safety is our utmost concern, so if it begins to rain during your session or if we have severe wind or lightning, we will cancel your session and try our best to reschedule any remaining portrait time. I promise I will be fair at working out a solution with you.
Half the session fee is charged when you book your session and it is a non refundable deposit. If you need to cancel your session for any reason, I ask that you do so as soon as possible. That being said, please don't force yourself or your sick child to take photos. The results will not be good and no one will be happy - and I want this to be fun! We will work to reschedule your session on a date that
works best for both of us.
When will I see my photos?
Within 2-3 weeks of your session we will upload your photos to an online gallery and email a link to you that you can share with family and friends. The email will also include instructions on how to download your images and order prints. For mini sessions, photos will be delivered within 1-2 weeks.
From your online gallery you can easily order professional prints and any of our portrait products that will get shipped directly to your home. Prices vary depending on size in product but 4x6 prints start at 92 cents.
If you would like to purchase a USB with your images on them it is an additional $25.
