What do I need to do to prepare for my Senior Portrait?
One advantage of high quality images is that you will notice the details. However, sometimes this advantage can become a disadvantage without a little preparation time.
Do you really want to look at your chipped nail polish for the next several decades, for example? Spend a few minutes looking critically at your reflection in the mirror. Many things can be retouched but anything that is easy to change on your actual physical being will save you additional money on retouching your virtual self.
On the other hand, if your complexion is not perfect on the day of the shoot – no worries! Generally going light on the make-up will produce a more natural and beautiful image and we’ll digitally zap the blemishes later, if necessary.
What should I wear?
Ultimately, there are no hard and fast rules. I would just encourage you to think of how you will use your images and with whom you will be sharing them.
So, if I were to make a suggestion,
it would be to bring at least three clothing changes to reflect these three facets of you:
- Keep clothes and jewelry traditional or simple. Solid colors work well.
- Dress to reflect your interests: Bring your sports, music, dance clothes, and props
- Dress to reflect YOU, and to capture the current fashion trends and moods
Can you supply a hair dresser/make-up artist?
All arrangements with stylists/make-up artists will be made independently of the photographer, but he/she is welcome to join us for your session!
Is it possible to receive digital images so I can use them on Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/ MySpace?
Yes! Certain "package" levels qualifies you to receive 2 digital images at 72 dpi (good for web use, but not good print quality). However, the best way to share your images is through a slideshow, which can be shared on Social Media sites.
