High School Seniors
I love, LoVe, LOVE! high school senior sessions! I love getting to know my seniors... their hobbies, interests, style. Your senior year is your time and your images should be as unique as you are.

A senior experience with Picture This Photography includes your consultation appointment, shooting time, editing and image preparation, reveal & ordering session, and delivery meeting. For all senior experiences, a yearbook photo will also be sent to your yearbook adviser.
The process: In-person consultation --> Session --> Reveal/Sales Meeting --> Delivery!

Several packages and a la carte items are available. I offer gift prints, wall art, and albums.
Your session fee is due in full at your initial consultation appointment and will secure your session date. It is non-refundable (unless I am unable to do your session). Sessions will be rescheduled if poor weather prevents the session. Prints & products are not included in the session fee unless otherwise noted.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What do I do first?
A: Please complete the inquiry form to help me get to know you and what you are looking for. Start thinking about the perfect season(s) and location for your session, and consider what you want to do with your portraits... Where in your home will you want them displayed? Who do you need to give copies to, and what sizes? When is my yearbook deadline?
Q: Where should we do the session?
A: I shoot on location, so if you know of a great looking outdoor place in the Jackson/Calhoun/Eaton County area, we can go there! I have a few locations I use regularly as well. I like to find unique locations for my seniors so you all have your own incredibly unique collection of images!
Q: What should I wear?
A: I am seriously not a fashion expert at all...just ask my daughter! ;) But one thing I do recommend is accessories! Ladies, bring your favorite pair of heels, chunky necklaces, bracelets, earrings, headbands...wear a little more make-up than usual. Bring outfits you feel good in. Something dressy, something classic/timeless (that won't go out of style next week), something casual... Google "senior picture wardrobe" and see what comes up. :) You could also check Pinterest - there are tons of ideas there!
Q: My face has broken out the day of my session! Should I reschedule??
A: Probably not! Unless your whole face has dramatically changed color, I can make it go away. :) If you think it's a major problem and you won't feel comfortable, we can try to push it back if there is an opening.
Q: Can the family come along?
A: Mom and/or Dad are welcome to tag along, but it's usually best not to bring the whole crew. Although their intentions are good, family members tend to be more distracting than helpful. But parents are great for carrying your clothes and accessories for you and noticing little things like out-of-place hair! Also keep in mind, especially if they are footing the bill for this, they probably will want to come along...and that's okay. :) A note to parents...Your senior will probably be most natural in front of the camera if you are not always right there. While we love having you there, please give us a little space once in a while. :)
Q: Can I bring a friend?
A: Absolutely! Friends often help you feel more comfortable and natural. Plus they can carry your clothes and accessories. :) You could also schedule a BFF session! Ask for details.
Q: None of the packages fit exactly what I need...What do I do?
A: No problem. Let me know what all you do need, and I will help you pick the right package, substitutes and upgrades.
Q: I want to order more than what's in my package. Where are the prices?
A: Again, no problem! This happens a lot! You are welcome to order additional products off the a la carte menu. If you want something that's not listed, just ask, because it may be available!
Q: Do you have any discounts?
A: I have worked long and hard to create fair pricing for the time, equipment, and skills I have and will put into your session. Packages are priced lower than if you were to purchase each item individually. Referring another senior from your school that is a GREAT way to save $25 on your Senior Session, or earn great rewards! We can also work together and plan a group session, and you could earn a lot of free stuff from that! However, since you were so thorough and read through all these FAQ's, go ahead and add a free set of 18 wallets to your Senior Collection. You will need to mention that you read this in the FAQs!
