One of the great things about senior portraits is that they can be great year round. Now that we're into November, it's getting colder (though - certainly today is an exception :) ), and starting to turn brown out, I do less family portraits outside. But senior portraits are different - there is always a great place to do senior portraits, even in the late fall and winter.
I had a blast with this gorgeous senior and her mom (side note - we found out our kids are at the same elementary school... small world!). Here's a preview for them so they see a few of my quick picks before their viewing session later this week.
For more information about my senior portraits, you can see my website here. I thought it might be helpful to break down my process a little for families that haven't worked with me before. It's pretty similar for family, baby, and child photography as well.
I think it's so important to set up our session with some background, so that I can be sure I'm taking portraits that are going to really show your story. I like to chat on the phone and get to know you a little before we meet for a session. That also gives us a chance to talk about clothes, locations, and any other questions you may have.
Then we meet for a session - I do lots of photography out and about in the Albuquerque area, like the images I've posted above. But I do have an "in-home studio" also (it's my living room - I have fabulous light and a room big enough to work with), so I'm pretty flexible. I am usually shooting for 35-40 proofs, though sometimes I go over that... (like the session above... way over...)
At our session (or before, if I'm on the ball), I will schedule a viewing session for you and your family (or whomever you want) to come and see all the images. I do a lot of viewing sessions at my home, but I can also meet you at Starbucks or potentially come to your home as well. After you've seen all the images, you can make your selections and choose your prints and/or products. I do apply $50 from your session fee to your purchase, when you make it at the viewing session.
Then it takes usually about 2 weeks for me to get everything ordered and ready to go. I have to make sure that everything is top-quality - something that I would display in my own home if I were you. I am always so happy to see you again with your beautiful products, ready to hang, gift, or use however you have planned!
If you have any questions, or would like to book a session, please contact me - I'd love to talk to you!
