CONGRATULATIONS
on being a senior!
THIS IS YOUR YEAR!

This will be one of the most exciting years of your life and I am so honored that you are considering me to help you document it!  You can expect custom senior pictures that are fun and absolutely beautiful.  You are one-of-a-kind and the pictures should reflect that.  I love working closely with my seniors, giving helpful direction through the posing process, ensuring that every shot is natural (not awkward), yet perfectly composed.

My senior portrait experience with Julie was so much fun! I really loved my locations and the lighting! Julie was so creative and a blast to be around. I felt like I could be myself around her."

I was very relaxed with Julie and I love how my pictures turned out!  I got to know her during the planning meeting so it wasn't awkward at all.  I gave Julie a couple different ideas and she took them and ran with them.  I couldn't be more happy with my pictures!

My session with Julie was so much fun I didn't want it to end!

EXPERIENCE

the

Upon booking you will be sent an online questionnaire to help me get to know you better.  We'll select your ideal locations and since I know how stressful it can be to coordinate your outfits, you'll also get immediate access to my styling service!

You'll answer a short questionnaire about how many people, ages/sexes, color preferences, and style you're going for, and the service will choose outfits for you to compare side-by-side.  Once you love what you've selected, you'll receive the shopping links in an email to make shopping a breeze.  You can also pull from your own closet and use this simply as inspiration.  

Once you have your outfits figured out, I'll ask that you take a snapshot of each one and send to me.  From there we'll coordinate your outfits with specific locations to get the very best look!  Below is an example of photo-approved examples you might see in your styling results.


Along with the styling service, I'll send you my digital Style Guide Magazine to help you prepare for your session.

The Style Guide will also walk you through ideas for incorporating your finished images into your home as artwork (wall art, albums, or printed keepsakes).  As your photographer, I believe it is my job to help you do something with the pictures so they don't get lost on your computer somewhere never to be seen again (except for maybe facebook).

I'll also have you send me photos of your walls before your session so I know a bit about your style.  You'll receive complimentary wall designs after you session.




BEFORE THE SESSION

Having your hair, nails, and/or make-up professionally done is a fun way to feel pampered and take the stress out of doing it yourself.  Regardless if you choose to hire someone or do it yourself, I highly recommend putting more make-up on than you normally do for the camera and don't forget some lip color.  You'll thank me for this later!  

Most of my clients change in the car so it's important to have your wrinkle-free outfits, jewelry, and accessories organized beforehand and ready to go!  

Enjoy a session being yourself!  We'll listen to music, laugh, goof off, and just have fun.  I'll give easy directions on how we can achieve natural poses  - no awkward or weird ones I promise!











THE PHOTO SESSION




About three weeks following your portrait session, you'll pick a date/time to receive your link to view your online gallery from the comfort of your own home.  This is everyone's favorite part!  You'll be able to download your photos and for one day you'll receive 20% off professional print products that you'd like for your home or for gifts. 

My streamlined, easy online ordering system will make selecting your images and products straightforward and fun!  I'm also available for in-person ordering sessions.

You'll also get access to my online wall gallery designer to visualize exactly what your photos will look like on your own walls. I can even upload other personal photos for you if you want to mix them in.
