(and no one will tell you)

What you should know before making a decision on what studio to have your senior portraits taken

1. Don’t be fooled by scare tactics. Some people will call and try to scare you into coming to them to be photographed.  One customer said someone called them and said”” if you don’t come here you won’t get your photo in the yearbook”. Really?  That is a scare tactic so that you will go to them, (if you don’t know any better).  Most schools will accept a photo as long as it meets the size and background requirements.  Ask us if we have supplied photos to your school’s yearbook, we will tell you the truth.

2. It doesn’t matter if you have a few blemishes or a few extra pounds..  We have expert retouchers to remove blemishes, stray hairs, etc.  We also don’t overdo the “fuzziness” so you look like a blur or a ghost. As far as the weight goes, we are experts at posing and lighting to flatter any figure!  Tell us any of your concerns, we really do care and want to know.

3. Senior Portraits shouldn’t be too gimmicky.  These portraits will be around a long time. You don’t want any background, prop, or setting that will look too dated. You are always going to be happy with well-lit, well-posed, classic images that stand the test of time.  Sure, it is fine to have some of those trendy ones, but we suggest you not overdo it.

4. A portrait consultation is always a good idea. We always encourage our clients to come and visit with us before their portrait session.  We don’t like surprises and we can be pretty sure that you do not either!  If you know what to bring, have met us and we like each other, you are going to have a much better experience. Call 942-4813 for a free consultation.

5. This is a major milestone in your life. Whether you realize it or not, your graduation from high school is a big deal!  You don’t want to trust your senior portraits to just anyone, and certainly not to a cookie cutter experience.  These images will be yours a lifetime. Make sure that you are completely comfortable with your senior photography choice and your experience.
