Because you are not standard issue.
If my only option for senior portraits were the boring generic yearbook photos, I wouldn’t do them either. #dontbother. I’d rather photograph you like we’re shooing a magazine cover or a movie poster. After all, this is a big chapter in your story. Shouldn’t you be the star? These are your un-portraits.
Let’s take the kind of photos that make you the coolest in your group of friends. Let’s show off what makes you unique. Whether you play softball or ride dirt bikes, dance ballet or juggle on a unicycle, we’ll take larger-than-life photos that put you on top of the world.
Sip on some bubbly water or a caramel Frappuccino while my professional stylist gives you a full makeover. Once your hair and makeup is all done, you’ll be looking your best and ready to rock! We’ll pick your favorite few outfits, and ANYTHING is fair game. Remember, this is all about you, and what makes you unique. You also have the option of picking out something amazing from Rent The Runway, for FREE! I’ll help you pick something out head of time if you want a second opinion. For a guy, I actually know my stuff!
Ready? Let’s do this! We’ll spend an hour or two in 1-2 locations taking some amazing photos. I’ll help you get the perfect poses, without looking posed. These aren’t your traditional senior photos, which is perfect, because you’re not traditional. Whether we’re using long flowing fabric, or you’re running up to shoot a goal, these photos are going to be so exciting!
Printing your photos
We’re creating art pieces for your home. Heirlooms to pass down. And something special to hold on to after you’ve moved out on your own. This is why I’ve put together the perfect packages for you to show off your photos exactly how you want them, and in the way that best features the artwork.
The value of a printed photograph is not even comparable to a digital image. Seeing your portrait standing out on the wall every day will bring you so much more joy than 27 likes on Instagram. This is why all of my printing options are centered around real, tangible prints. But since I know you like to share them with others who may not be dropping by your house any time soon, I do include a high quality digital album app for your phone or tablet. You’ll always have a digital copy of theprints you’ve chosen with you, and it is designed to let you share the images with ease via email, text, and social media.
Un-Portrait sessions are $250 and include
- personalized consultation
- Professional hair and makeup styling
- an outfit from Rent The Runway + wardrobe styling
- 1-2 hour personalized photo shoot
- full retouching of your photos
