Senior portraits have changed so much over the past few years.  When I was a senior, everyone took school portraits, and that was it.  We all waited in line for the same backdrop and same photographer, doing the same thing over and over again.

It wasn’t interesting.  My photos didn’t show my personality, and my smile looked clearly forced for the camera. I vowed to be a different type of photographer for my seniors.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Every session at our studio is customized and crafted to our seniors’ personalities.  No two sessions are ever the same, and we pride ourselves in giving each client a wonderful experience that is unique to them.

We’ve trained with some of the top fashion photographers in the US, so our goal is to bring what was once only available to models and celebrities to our  clients: magazine-worthy photos for the modern senior.

Throughout our pre-session consultation, we will discuss every detail pertaining to your session: wardrobe, location, props, styling.  We will walk you through every step of the process, so that you will  know exactly how to plan for your session.

DAY OF SESSION

Included with every senior portrait session is a beautifying date with one of our professional makeup artists.  Our makeup artists have been specially trained for on-camera makeup, and they will have you feeling confident and ready for the photoshoot.  During your senior session, you will never have to worry about where to place your hands, how to pose, or which way to turn your head.  I will guide you through all of that, and your photos will look natural and relaxed.

RETOUCH AND EDIT

After your session, you photos will be meticulously edited and refined to professional standards.

Here’s a before and after so you see the difference:

PREMIERE ORDERING SESSION

Once the photos are finished, you’ll be invited to our studio for a photo premiere.  We will show you a slideshow of your gorgeous images right on our TV.  You’ll get to experience all of my products and samples first hand, so that you can touch and feel the difference of our heirloom quality pieces.   If you have questions about sizing a portrait for the wall, I can help you with that as well.  Instead of a gallery on the web, and a bunch of print sizes and products that you may not be familiar with, our boutique approach to ordering will ensure that you get the exact products at the right size you want without worrying if you’ve made the right decision.

COST TO COMMISSION A PORTRAIT SESSION

Compared to the latest technology gadgets that are breakable and replaceable, while still costing thousands of dollars, our portrait sessions are only $250.  And yes, that includes the professional airbrush makeup artist!  Portrait collections, which includes various prints, digitals, albums, and canvases are a separate cost.

Collections start at $650 for Jessica (our associate photographer) and $950 for Ling (principal photographer).  Typically our senior clients will spend an average of $1150-$2000 on their sessions, and some may spend more.

Think about it this way, there are very few things in your home that will last for generations. Portraits don’t depreciate in value; they only get more valuable with time.  Your time now is also something that you will never get back.  You’re only this age once.  It’s worth having your portraits done right because photos are something you can share with your family, and they’re also something you can enjoy years from now when you look back on them.  This is a part of your legacy, and we are confident that we can help you document this time in your life and make it really special.
