I am now booking for Class of 2018 Senior photo sessions!
If you are looking to deviate from the ordinary studio-lit photo sessions and really want to have your son or daughter shine in a unique setting, contact me today. We can discuss location options which are geared specifically to your Senior and will make them feel right at home. Whether in or around your home or property, in a nearby town, industrial setting or downtown city, I have covered them all. I am looking for some new challenges this year, so bring it!
Scheduled for 3 hours, I focus on creating a casual, stress-free environment. Consisting of 2-3 outfit changes, the variety of images you will receive in the end will surprise you.
*Availability is limited to one session per day, usually morning (9-Noon) or afternoon (4-7pm) on the weekends only. This allows for flexibility when it comes to Michigan’s weather as we may need to switch times. Special arrangements can be made for other times, if necessary.
It was a busy late Summer and Fall season for me with quite a few Seniors to photograph. To those Families that spread the word about my services and to those students who gave me their All, I thank you. Being a part of documenting this time in Amanda, Austin, Sean, Alex, and Jack’s Lives truly is an Honor.
If you are interested in booking a Senior Session with me for the Winter, please contact me. Click here for specific info on my Sessions. I wont be setting any specific dates for availability, but am willing to work out special arrangements for you, weather permitting. As for the Spring, I will make dates available once the weather becomes more tolerable.
There have been quite a few consistent questions about how I manage shooting Senior Photos for my clients. In hopes of answering some, I will post them here for you.
Q: How much do you charge?
A: I am offering 2 packages this season:
Package 1: $400.00
3 Locations max. (Add’l travel expenses may apply if extensive.)
2-3 outfit changes
2 USB memory sticks containing ALL images, deliverable within 2 weeks
You receive all electronic images, color corrected, both in Hi Res (300 dpi for Print) and Lo Res (72 dpi for social media, email, etc.)
You retain ALL copyrights, both print and electronic, to the images.
Package 2: $500.00 (Same as above with the addition of the following prints)
20-wallets (5 images max.)
Q: How do I schedule our shoot?
A: I provide you a link to my calendar and you pick a date which works best for you. In order to secure that time I require a $100.00 deposit, either by cash, check or PayPal. On the day of the shoot the balance is due, depending on which Package you have chosen.
Q: Where do you photograph my Son/Daughter?
A: I am an on-location photographer, meaning we hold the session in an outdoor venue of your choice. I have no studio and focus on providing your son/daughter as unique an environment as possible with the locations of their liking.
Q: What if the weather doesn’t cooperate?
A: “It’s Michigan. Just wait 5 minutes and the weather will change.” I only shoot one (1) session per day for the simple fact that if the weather is being uncooperative, we have the flexibility to wait it out and ensure we get your session in. If by chance the weather is just not cooperating at all, I have built-in flexibility to reschedule your shoot at a later date. We will get the shoot in, I promise you.
Q: Can I get a refund if we can’t reschedule?
A: I do not refund the deposit ($100.00), but will not charge you for the remaining balance.
Q: Do you shoot the required head shot for the School yearbook and class composite?
A: No. The requirements are quite strict and I don’t have a studio. You are able to contact the photography studio that has a contract with your school and set up a session specifically for that shot. They will charge a small fee and provide the school with the imagery.
Q: What do I get for my investment with you?
A: Aside from preserving this important stage in your son/daughters life, you receive all edited images in both Hi Resolution (print-quality) and Low Resolution (web-based/social media quality). If you choose Package 2, you also receive professional quality prints.
Q: Do I get any prints from you?
A: Regardless which Package you choose to go with, you are paying for my time and “eye”. If you choose to go with Package 2, you will receive 29 high-quality prints.
Q: Who do you recommend for printing if I go with Package 1?
A: The list is always growing, but as of right now, I recommend www.mpix.com and www.adoramapix.com. They are both excellent quality and fast turnaround.
Q: Who owns the pictures?
A: You own everything. I hold no copyright to the images. Within the files of each image is metadata which specifically states “(Insert Name) is the owner of these images and retains all rights, both electronic and print.” I only include my name and contact information as the photographer on record.
Q: We want to have a session in (Insert City Name) which is 3 hours away. Are you willing to travel?
A: I am willing to travel anywhere you choose with the understanding that additional travel expenses will need to be agreed upon.
If you have any other questions, please Contact Me today and I will be sure to answer them all. Thank you for considering my services.
