Hi Seniors! There are so many things to get ready for your senior year and senior portraits are at the top of your list. Without the portraits you can't complete ads for the football program, the senior pages in the back of the yearbook from mom and dad, sorority/fraternity applications require photos and the best part is you need to celebrate YOU.
Today, I want to talk about the myths that surround Senior Portraits. You hear these "facts" from so and so and they already had their senior portraits done by the school's photographer. I know, because I was once a "school photographer" for several high schools and I remember all the things that people use to say and ask about their senior portraits.
5. I have to use the contracted school photographer for my fun and casual portraits.
No, you do not have to go with the contracted photographer that is hired by the school to photograph the tuxedo and drape images for the yearbook. They are under contract to do no more/no less.
4. If I don’t use the school photographer, they will not put my photo in the yearbook.
This is a tactic that is used to entice you to use their services. This keeps you from searching for a senior portrait photographer that better serves your needs for what you would like your senior portraits to look like.
3. I don’t have time to use an outside photographer.
Sure it is more convenient to not have to shop around. All you need is a few hours in your schedule for the consultation, session and order appointment. Sessions are available on weekends and in the evenings during the week. I can even do the order appointment in your own home.
2. I have to spend $$$$ to get nice portraits done.
While custom senior portraits and products are specifically designed for each individual senior, we always strive to give you the best for your investment. We offer payment plans, as well as, accept all major credit cards.
1. I never look good in photos anyway.
Nothing is further from the truth! You have to make sure you are prepared for your senior session. At the senior consultation I will go over all the steps to help you gather props, outfits, and tips for make-up/hygiene.
