Casting Call! Looking for a special graduating senior

Friends, I’m looking for someone with a high school senior (graduating 2015, or possibly even someone who just graduated who did not get senior photos), who is interested in a “reimagining” of the senior photo experience to be a model for my new “Benediction” high school senior celebration sessions. This session would be a celebration of the senior but involve the whole family through short interviews and individual portraits as well as a few family photos. I have a vision for senior sessions that goes beyond just getting great photos (although you’d get that too), but also involves fostering an environment where you can speak life into your graduate and bless them as they prepare for their next step in life. Don’t worry; I will be providing the tools to help you share your love for your graduate, in a stress-free, low-key environment as I come alongside you.

If you would like to be considered for the “pilot” of my new session format–and the reduced session prices that come with being my guinea pig, please contact me. Ideal candidates would also be willing to spread the word about the awesomeness of your experience (because I am confident it *will* be awesome) to other 2015 graduating seniors, and would have the opportunity to earn product credit for doing so. But above all, candidates–and their families–must buy into the vision for these integrated family/graduate shoots.

This is for families and parents who:
* think their graduate is awesome and are proud of the young man or young woman they have become
* desire portraits that reveal the true heart of their child and go beyond the typical “model-type” senior shoots
* have pride and love their child, but would like a guiding hand to help express it
* have a heart full of well wishes and blessings and would like to leave their graduate with a “Benediction”
* believe in beautiful keepsakes

Is this you? Then please, contact me and tell me a bit about you and your family!

Graduating Senior Sneak Peek: Claire

Today I’m sharing a special graduating senior sneak peek for Claire!

In all of my sessions, my foremost priority is to bring out the best in my clients. This doesn’t just mean the best aesthetics, but also the best person; I want sessions to reflect the person and the “real” person in front of the camera… not just make everyone look like moody, smoldering models.

Graduating seniors are fun, because they are at an important crossroads in life, but are usually more willing than their older counterparts to cut loose and have a little fun. Claire’s session was a blast. We sang, we laughed, we danced. photo of high school senior girlphoto of high school senior girlphoto of high school senior girlphoto of high school senior girlphoto of high school senior girlphoto of high school seniorphoto of high school seniorphoto of high school senior girlphoto of high school senior girlphoto of high school senior girlphoto of high school seniorphoto of high school seniorpicture of high school senior girl

A special feature that sets my senior sessions apart, too, is that I seek to involve the parents in helping to create a lasting tribute to their senior, one that celebrates their high school graduate and their strengths, and also offers their own words of wisdom or special memories. I guide parents through a simple questionnaire and the answers are incorporated into a one-of-a-kind slideshow.

Check one thing off your senior’s “to do” list today!

Do you have a high school senior? Are you frazzled, stressed, and a bit overwhelmed as graduation date approaches?

Let’s check one thing off your senior’s “to do” list today: let’s get your senior portraits scheduled!

I know your plate is full with prom, graduation, a variety of end-of-year events, and maybe even a college decision still to be made.  But your senior’s portraits don’t have to be stressful.

Before your session, I will consult with you and your student over the phone to tailor a session suited to their interests and personality. And then in just a couple hours, your part is done! And when your images are ready, I guide you through a one-hour selection process so that in less than 60 minutes, you have images selected for family, friends, graduation announcement enclosures, and wall art and album images.  No muss, no fuss!

Let’s do this! I would love to help you celebrate your senior and their accomplishments!

And if you contact me NOW, there still may be time to get your photo session complete *and* your favorite minis printed in time to include with your senior’s graduation announcements!  But time is running out...
