Can I just take a moment to say "Wow 2012 has flown by". Ok, now that I have that out of my system, we can move on.
We (James and I) have had a lot of inquiries about the cost of our senior sessions. The cost varies depending on the session you choose. I've attached a pdf that explains our sessions and cost, here. As you will see, there are a variety of options. Of course if you have something specific in mind, please let me know. We love to be creative and open to challenges! For example, recently we were asked if we could shoot a graduate in his duck blind. Immediately our response was "If you can get us there we can do it!"
When we go out on a shoot with a senior, we take a very casual approach. We have a "hanging out" approach that allows us to get to know our seniors a little before we put them in front of the camera. We also encourage their input. Our young men and women are very creative and want to show their creativity and personality as much as we do. We also encourage seniors to bring any items of special interest with them: senior jackets, rings, achievements, hobbies, etc.
Our locations also vary depending on the personality of the graduate. We don't have a "one size fits all" mentality. Rather, we help our graduates choose a location that we fill fits his/her personality. We've shot everywhere from the park to the back ally and are always scouting new shot spots.
When we go out to shoot, we have a team typically consisting of me (Linda) behind the camera and one other person assisting with lighting (usually my husband James and occasionally my daughter, Kara). If necessary, we will sometimes ask parents to watch from a distance. We only do this if we feel like it's absolutely necessary. For instance, we have had parents try to help us by standing over our shoulder and direct the graduate on how to pose. We've also had graduates not be themselves because "everyone is staring at me". We want your senior pictures to reflect your true personality and encourage our seniors to let us know if they are uncomfortable.
There are a lot of factors involved in creating the perfect senior portfolio. We encourage our graduates to consider not only price, but the technique used by the photographer when choosing their photographer. Photographers are artisit and as artist each artist has his or her own unique style.
