What is the cost of a senior photo session?


A standard senior session is $295. However, I often will create custom packages for my clients. If you have any special requests regarding your session please reach out and let me know, I'd love to hear from you.




How long will my session last?


My basic senior sessions last approximatly 1 - 1.5 hours. If you requrire more time or would like to go to different locations please contact me directly and I can create a custom package for your needs.




How do you choose a place for my senior portraits?


Together we will talk about the look and feel that you want for your Portraits. Maybe that means you love fields, streams, and bridges. Maybe you prefer a more modern look with an old abandoned building and cracked cement. Or perhaps you’re somewhere in the middle. Whatever your style is, I can find a location that you'll love.




What if it rains?


I will watch the weather closely as your Session approaches. If it looks like rain, we’ll reschedule to a day/time as soon as possible.




Can I bring a parent or friend?


Of course! I encourage you to bring someone that will help you relax and have fun. In fact, if you’re under 18, I insist that you bring someone. You may want to warn your guest because I often enlist parents/friends/siblings in holding reflectors or act goofy behind me.




What is the best time of year to get my senior photos done?


Whenever you like; just plan ahead and don't wait until the last minute! Summer and fall are the most popular seasons.




What should I bring with me?


Along with your change of clothes, I recommend bringing basic stuff like a brush, powder [yes, guys, you may want to bring some as well!], lip gloss, etc.




How long will it take before I can view my images?


Two weeks after our Senior Session, I will invite you to your own personal Gallery where you can view all of the edited images.




Who owns the digital files?


Copyright is something that I get asked about often. Many photographers include a "copyright release" in their contracts, which generally just means the same as a release to have images printed by yourself, or at any lab you choose. That's not the same as obtaining copyright. Copyright simply means that I am the creator of the images, and I "own" the copyright. Selling or obtaining "the copyright" is not possible, but you will have the ability to print and share your images as much as you'd like.




I wear glasses. What should I do?


I will position you so there is minimal glare and photo shop when we need to. I want to make sure everyone can see those beautiful peepers!




I have braces. What are my options?


I can digitally remove braces if you don’t want them in the photos for an additional charge. I'll always give you a quote for any additional work and won't move forward until I get your "okay".




Can I request specific photos be taken?


Of course! I will make sure to get your preferences at our pre-session consultation.




Can I bring my own props for my session?


Yes, bring anything you’d like! Items from a sport you play, instruments, uniforms, pets, or a car are welcome to make your pictures an individualized portrait of what is important to you. You can even bring your BFF and I'll snap a few photos of you together!




Could I bring my pet along?


Yes, bring your dog, cat or pet goat. I love animals!




How will I view my images?


I will invite you to your own personal Gallery with its own unique link where you can view all of the edited images. You'll also receive a thumb drive with all of your edited high-resolution images.




How do I go about securing a session?


To schedule your senior session date and time, you can email me by using the Contact US page link, or call me (847-844-9000). Payment is due at the time of booking in order to reserve your session. Talk to you soon!




How many clothing changes can I bring?


2-3 clothing changes are just about right for the length of time we will be photographing. I always recommend choosing clothing that you feel great in – if you feel great, you’ll be confident, comfortable, and more relaxed.
