Your senior pictures are an important part of your senior experience and as you search for a senior photographer you’re looking for images that stand out from the rest, for individuality and uniqueness of your senior session and, of course, for cost. Be prepared for Sticker Shock! Photographers use a variety of marketing strategies to convince you they’re the best, one strategy is to charge a ton with the belief that one will think if they charge that much they must be really good.
Choosing a senior photographer should be fairly straightforward, find a couple of photographers whose images you like, compare costs and features and contact a few for more information. We don’t think you can find superior images to ours and we are the most affordable.
You live in a Social Media world, why choose an old style studio? Our senior services are built around how you live in the Social Media World: Facebook, Instagram, Vine, SnapChat, Pheed, Tumbler etc. We provide you with a DVD of all your images resized and formatted for use on social media sites. Just upload and share what you want with who you want. We also provide a DVD of all your images full size and full resolution so if your parents, relatives or friends want photos we’ve got that covered too…And if you buy photos from us, and you certainly are not obligated to, there are no photo package requirements! Order what you want in the sizes you want. And, why should you have to pay for a DVD of your photos?
Glasses: We understand that glasses are popular and are often a fashion statement as well as a functional necessity, however, as a photographer who uses off camera light the reflection in the lenses from the light is an issue. We can mitigate the effect by changing the light position and changing the angle of your head, but those are limiting and will eliminate some of the more interesting poses. We suggest any of the following, often your optometrist will permit you to borrow a set of frames without glass, we’ve had numerous seniors have the glass removed from their glasses for the day and finally contacts are great as well. If none of those options is viable for you, we will do what we can, just understand that if the reflection covers part of the actual eye, there is little we can do to resolve the issue.
Our Packages are all inclusive, there are no extra charges or fees, what you see is what you will receive. Although we do not require seniors to purchase photos, we do offer prints at near Wal Mart prices and we have no package requirements, buy the images and sizes you want, period.
