All of my sessions include a complimentary pre-session phone consultation and ordering session to view and purchase products. Senior Sessions include professional hair and makeup application. For more information, please check out my investment page!
Not only does my calendar book up quickly, so does my hair and makeup artist's! Please contact me about booking at least a month in advance, but it's never too early to get on our books!
Your ordering session will be one of the best days ever! When you book with me, we schedule your ordering session about a week from your session date. This is where you come in to my home, eat some snacks, and view all your photos! I help you narrow your selection down and order your heirloom products. Our collections start at $500 and include beautiful keepsakes such as gift prints, crystal leatherette hardcover albums, canvas wall wraps, and so much more!
The short answer to this is, no! But, your booking fee does not include any prints, digital files, or products. Our collections begin at $500 and I will be there to walk you through all your options to find out what you really need and want to order!
Your photos will be professionally retouched and ready for you to view about 1 week from your session date. We will go through all the final images at your ordering session, and I'll help you select your favorites! Once you place your print/product order at your ordering session, it'll take 4-6 weeks for you to receive the final products.
A Senior Representative Program is a chance for local Seniors to be a part of a selective group of students to represent my business! It's an opportunity to get your professional Senior photos done by me, as well as participate in group shoots and other fun activities. There's no time requirement, referral requirement, or any "sales" work involved, just a group of Seniors making the most out of their senior year. Along with photo sessions, my reps. get a chance to be the "faces" behind my business for the school year. We also like to do volunteer work or give back to our community, churches, clubs and activities, and schools as much as we can during the year. If you're interested in becoming a 2020 Senior Rep. contact me here today!
Please do! I love incorporating pets in senior and family sessions! Just please let me know ahead of time so I can prepare and we can choose a pet friendly location!
Not everyone is as girly and makeup obsessed as me, I get it! But yes, you do have to get professional hair and makeup done for your Senior session. Not to say you're not drop dead gorgeous without it, but professional makeup is very beneficial when you're going in front of a camera. My professional hair and makeup artist Lanae Crum is just like me when it comes to wanting your session to be all about YOU! She asks you about your daily skin care and makeup routine and you have the choice of what makeup you'd like done. You can choose a light foundation, some lip liner, and mascara.. or you can go full coverage, highlight poppin', finished with false lashes. Getting at least a natural makeup look done not only enhances your beauty, but makes you truly pop in your Senior photos!
I love a good Kansas rain as much as the next girl... just not on the date of your session! I will never make you brave a gloomy, rainy day. If the weather is rainy, super muddy, icy roads, extremely hot or freezing cold, don't worry! We will reschedule your session and your booking fee will transfer over to the new session date.
Your parents are the ones who raised you (and survived!) up until this date. Your parental figure(s) need to be involved so we can do all the boring business talk, and leave the fun part to you! I like a parent to be in contact with me and even at the session so everyone is on the same page about every detail of your session. I also like parents to be involved if you're under 18 just to make sure you're safe and if there is an emergency, you're in great hands! Plus, it's fun to watch your kid get their senior photos taken, it's a very big milestone in both of your lives, filled with lots of emotions. I'll even let the parent(s) sneak in a few photos if they want!
