We digitally retouch and lightly enhance each individual image as needed with color corrections, lighting enhancement, skin smoothing, stray hair removal and blemish removal. We want your images to look like you and be as natural as possible. After the editing is finished, we will upload the images to your Final Gallery. There, you and your family are able to request additional editing, if needed, before your Gallery is finalized.

Optional professional print products are also available at an additional cost. We carry heirloom albums, wall art, gift prints, custom announcements and more. All of our print products are printed using professional labs that are only available to professional photographers.

Approximately one week after your portrait session, you will receive a link to your Review Gallery with the  unedited images from your portrait session. From there, you and your family will select your favorite images for us to edit. The amount of digital images will depend on the All-Inclusive Collection that was chosen at booking.

Glacier National Park Sessions

During your fashion consultation, you will have the option to explore and try on our different outfit choices from the Senior Style Closet. If you find pieces you love, you may borrow them the day of your portrait session to be photographed in.

During your makeup trial, we will have your fashion consultation. This is the time we will go over your outfits and accessories so we can plan locations accordingly.

Pinterest is great for hair inspiration. Choose a different hairstyle for each outfit and show them to our hairstylist before your session so she can get an idea of exactly what you are wanting. 

Hair is also an important feature when getting senior portraits taken. Our hairstylist will style your hair at the studio and she will also attend your session to change up your hairstyles with each outfit.

Professional Hairstyling

Photographic makeup is an essential product for the unforgiving lens of a high definition camera. Even if your skin is naturally flawless, the camera will bring out discoloration, dark circles and texture that you might not even notice on a normal day. Our makeup artist uses professional, highly effective foundations, pigments, powders and techniques that provide long lasting, flawless coverage while still appearing natural.  Whether you are wanting a fresh natural look, or something smokey and dramatic, our makeup artist will help you feel absolutely beautiful the day of your portrait session. No need to worry about your lipstick smudging or an eyelash coming off, our makeup artist will also attend your session for touch ups.

The right kind of makeup can truly make or break your portrait session. For that reason, we offer complimentary, professional makeup for all of our collections. You will also receive a complimentary makeup trial so you can ensure you will love your makeup the day of your portrait session. 

01

Professional Makeup

If you are from out of town or unable to attend your mini session, you may exchange this session for an 11x14 canvas.

When booking the Glacier Collection or the Wildflower Collection, you will also receive a complimentary, thirty minute mini session. Choices for your mini session include, a bestie session,
cap + gown session or a mini senior session. The mini senior session is a popular option because it allows our Seniors to get their photos taken during multiple seasons! Ten edited, high resolution digital images with the print release are included.

NOPE! You won’t have to worry about any posing, we will direct you the entire time. During a typical session, we will ask you silly questions and have you tell us funny stories about friends and family so we can capture natural, genuine smiles and laughter. We will also have you do movements like walking or twirling to capture natural motion. Don’t worry if you feel awkward while doing some of the movements, just TRUST US. The outcome is always beautiful. 

While blemishes are simply removed in editing; sunburns, tan lines and bras are not an easy fix. Please be cautious of how much time you are spending in the sun a few weeks prior to your portrait session. If you have unwanted tan lines, a professional hand-sprayed tan is a quick fix to even out your tan lines. As for bras, please make sure you are wearing the correct bra for EACH outfit. Patterns, embellishments and bright colors are not recommended and can be very distracting if shown through clothing. A simple nude bra with removable straps or adhesive covers work best for almost every outfit.

We all have our insecurities. We like to focus on posing and capturing angles that flatter the skin you’re in. What we can’t accomplish behind the camera, we can certainly work on in the editing process. We are not here to judge, we are here to help you feel your best. 

We suggest reserving your date as soon as booking opens for our Class of 2024 waiting list on January 8th, 2023. Most seniors book their sessions 6-10 months in advance. Desirable months such as June, July and early October book up quickly. We are a small team, meaning we can only take on a very limited amount of clients each year. 

Please make sure to have a fresh manicure the day of your session. We suggest getting your nails done at a nail salon with gel polish. It is a hard polish that prevents your nails from chipping or breaking. If you want long natural nails the day of your session, start getting the gel polish a month or two in advance. You will need to get them done about every two to four weeks. This will give your nails time to grow. Subtle polish is usually best for portrait sessions. Bright colors can sometimes be distracting and if the color does not match all of your outfits it will clash.

We digitally retouch every image purchased at your print ordering session. We will lightly enhance each individual image as needed with color corrections, lighting enhancement, skin smoothing, stray hair removal and blemish removal. We want your images to look like YOU and be as natural as possible.

It is no secret that portraits created by an educated, professional photographer with an established business can be quite an investment. We want your experience with us to be as stress free as possible, which is why we offer zero interest, in-house payment plans for all of our Senior Collections. 

It is only $500 down to reserve your session date, regardless of the Collection you choose. The remaining balance is then split into equal payments for a duration of 3, 6 or 9 months. You can view your balance and make payments, at your convenience, through an online portal that will be set up after booking. Once the down payment has been made, we can schedule your senior session as soon as you would like. If there is a remaining balance after the session has taken place, the images will be held until the final payment has been made.
