What's a Senior Portrait Session really like?

So, you're about to graduate... WOOOOOOO HOOOOOO! It's about dang time!

You've probably seen senior photos from your friends and classmates, and thought to yourself, "awwww, I want pics like that! But I'm camera shy."

Well I'm here to tell you to STOP THAT NONSENSE! 

This is Erica. A soon to be University of Nevada Reno Graduate. She is graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. She reached out to me to get some senior photos taken, but gave me fair warning that she was very shy and didn't think she was going to be comfortable in front of the camera... Well, as you can see, I broke that!

This is how my senior portrait sessions work.

Together we pick a location based on your preferences and the look and feel that you want your pictures to portray. Don't worry, if you have no idea, I'm here to help you.
We then pick the perfect time of day to make the magic happen. This is typically "the golden hour", which is the 1-2 hour timeframe just before sunset. But don't fret, if you can't make that time we will still make beautiful photos during any time of day. It's all about lighting and knowing how to work with it and use it to your advantage. Erica was photographed during a gloomy overcast day and still had amazing photos!

Also, if you need help with outfits, or hair and makeup, I know people ;)

After we pick location and time, and brainstormed ideas, we meet up on the photo shoot date and are ready to shoot!

During the session, the first 10 minutes or so will be used for getting comfortable with the camera, and having your photo taken. If you're shy, or reserved, this is the time that I will break that for you! You'll soon see yourself having fun, laughing and giggling, making dorky faces, and just having a blast. We will do traditional poses, fun poses, and dorky poses. If there is something that you want to try, by all means you try it! We are there to have fun and get amazing photos no matter what. 

After your photo session, I meticulously go over your photos and cull them. I select only the best so that when you see them you say, "WOW!" to each one. You are special and deserve only the best, so that's what you'll get! Oh, and I also edit ALL of them! I get rid of any obvious blemishes, zits, pimples, way off stray hairs, and of course edit for color and style. Once they are all done, they are uploaded to a private gallery with a password so you can browse them and order digitals, prints, canvases, or albums directly from the gallery. Oh, and of course you can share them on social media as well :)

All in all, if you're shy, don't be. Embrace your inner beauty, or manliness for us dudes, and get some awesome photos taken!
