WHAT DOES THE ENTIRE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?
1. CONSULTATION AND BOOKING (via email/phone or in person)
This is where we decide on the date and start planning your photo session: location, outfits, etc.
2. PHOTO SESSION
A fun session at the location of your choice and whole a lot of fun!
3. VIEWING/ORDERING SESSION
In person meeting at my studio where you get to see your entire session and pick your favorite photos to order prints, albums, cards and more!
4. DELIVERING OF YOUR ORDER
There is nothing like holding beautiful photographs in your hands; They are a wonderful reflection of your achievements and a reason to celebrate YOU!
This is the final and one of the most exciting steps!
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME FOR A PHOTO SESSION?
My favorite time for photos is during the golden hour, which is 1-2 hours before sunset. (5:30-6: 30pm during the summer and a bit earlier in fall). It's the most flattering and softest light, that minimizes harsh shadows. Also if it's a summer session - you will feel much more comfortable as the air temperature goes down towards evening time.
WHAT LOCATION DO YOU RECOMMEND?
This is something we will work together on, during a booking process you will have an opportunity to fill out and answer a few questions which will then help to determine the style of your session. Whether it's an urban, field, garden, rooftop, river, alleys or park - I will have multiple great suggestions of a perfect background for your senior portraits in Spokane area.
HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION LAST AND HOW MANY LOCATIONS WILL WE GO TO?
There are two types of sessions to choose from, and whether you decide on 1 hour at 1 location - or 2 hours at 2 locations - I am confident you will love your images! If you are involved in sports or simply love being photographed and want a lot of variety - 2 hours/2 locations will be the best option for you.
HOW MANY OUTFITS SHOULD I BRING?
You are welcome to bring as many outfits as you'd like, but I feel like 2 or 3 outfits is the most optimal number. Just remember that senior session is not about showcasing your wardrobe but it's focusing on your eyes, smiles, and positivity, celebrating and capturing who you are and what you have accomplished.
CAN MY FRIEND OR PARENT COME?
You bet! If you feel more comfortable to have your friend or your Mom with you - you are more than welcome to bring them along. But if you get easily shy and not yourself because many people are watching - then coming by yourself is the best option for you. I promise to keep you laughing and super relaxed the whole time.
WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW HOW TO POSE?
That is absolutely alright and I actually prefer for you not to know how to pose, I would be happy to guide you and help you through the entire process! You will feel confident and in just a little bit you will know exactly what to do and will have a lot of fun with it!
DO I NEED A PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP?
The simple and short answer to this question would be "YES!" Because you are getting professional photos taken - I feel like professionally done makeup is a must. Not only it boosts your confidence, but it also helps to smooth and even out the skin tones to enhance your beautiful features in a natural way. I know a wonderful and talented makeup artist that I worked with for many years - I would be more than happy to send you a referral!
