5. Portrait Premier

After your amazing portraits have been processed, we will schedule your viewing/ordering session at the studio. You will first see your images on a 5 foot screen set to music. This is what I call the premier. It has been known to bring a tear to mom’s eyes. At this time all decision makers must be present ,for this is the one time you will view your images and make your portrait purchase.

Getting your hair and makeup done for your senior portrait session can really make a big difference in your portraits. If you wish to do your own hair and makeup please do not use makeup with shimmer or sparkles, these makeups can cause shine when using a flash. Mat makeup is much better for photography Please call the studio and I can recommend a hair and makeup person.

Yes the studio offers Digital image Collections and Ala Cart Digital image Packs.

Once you book your session, I will send your the link to check to a Guys or Girls Style Guide to help you to choose what to wear.

Yes every image will be artfully edited and retouched. Not to worry you have a say if you want only a small amount of retouching. My goal is to remove blemishes not pores.
