how many family members can be included in a session

There is no limit!  Just understand that larger groups take more time to arrange. Smaller groups will get more variety, but getting big family groups together in one image can be priceless.

what if I just need a yearbook photo?

Our 1-hour(ish) studio session is perfect for you!  We’ll make sure we get a photo that follow’s your school’s yearbook photo.  If that’s all you want, we can even finish you up early and get you back to whatever you’d prefer to be doing.  If you’d like a handful of other looks, we can work some other things in the studio.  

can you tell me more about the viewing session and purchasing images?

After our shoot (immediately after for our 1-hour(ish) studio sessions, or at a later date for our longer, sunset sessions), we’ll sit down with you, mom, dad, and/or anybody else wanting to have a hand in purchasing individual images.  This viewing session will be the only opportunity to view and purchase the images that you’ll end up with.

The images you purchase ($50 each) will come in both color & b&w and will be worked up by our professional retouchers.  

How many images do I get?

However many (or as few!) as you want.  You purchase only what you love…we hope you love a lot!

what rights do I have to the images?

You can do anything you want with them.  Print them, re-edit them, post them on social media.  Whatever!

I want to do a session with a friend. Can I do that?

Yes!  It’s just 1.5x the session price.  

should my parents be present during my shoot? Should I attend my son/daughter's shoot? can I bring a friend for support?

Honestly, we think the best dynamic for MOST seniors is to not have their parents attend the shoot.  That’s not a hard & fast rule, but parents tend to try to be “helpful”…and….well….parently.  Have your parents attend if you must, but think it through first.

A friend?  Sure! Please pick someone who we be supportive. 

what are the minimum orders?

Other than the session fee ($190 or $390) there are no additional minimum orders.

how do I get the images?

We’ll provide a downloadable gallery.  Each image you purchase we’ll provide both a black & white and color version.  They will be high-resolution JPEG images that should be large enough to print almost any size.  

do you offer prints or other tangible items?

We listened to the market, and the market told us you just want the digital images.  So to keep things simple, that’s all we offer.
