BOOKING YOUR SESSION
YAY - I can't wait to share your senior year celebrations with you!
To secure your shoot date, we'll take care of your session fee and signed photography agreement and then you are officially booked!
preparing for your shoot
Our relationship begins approximately 2-4 weeks prior to your session as we put together the custom plan for your story – everything from locations to makeup, wardrobe and beyond – leave all the details to us.
You’ll have full access to Taylor’s fashion and styling expertise every step of the way, so you’ll never have to stress about a single thing. We can personally work with you to finalize every detail of each outfit for your session.
Your shoot day!
Eeeeek!! It's YOUR day!
On the day of your session, you'll arrive to the studio with your face freshly cleansed and moisturized and you'll have your makeup done by a pro artist. Then, we'll shoot in about four different looks and I'll be walking you through every single pose!
Image reveal & Ordering session
Next, I'll be hard at work editing your photographs and then you'll come back in for (my favorite part)... your reveal!
You'll see all of your best-of-the-best images and choose your favorites for an album, wall art, and digitals. We'll design together the perfect announcements and ways to display your favorite images for both your grad party and then to transition into your home.
RECEIVE YOUR PRINTED PHOTOGRAPHS
Showoff those beautiful images!!
Most of my clients choose a variety of products to fill up their decoration table at their graduation party. They also choose a timeless piece or two for mom and dad to display at home. And finally, the digital images are always a must to post on Instagram + Facebook!
You can fill out our contact form below and we'll be in touch to find a date that works best. Then, you'll receive a booking proposal from us to take care of your session fee and sign your photography agreement. We do require a parent to book the session, as you must be over 18 to sign and parents are typically who is making all purchasing decisions.
You would actually be surprised how often we hear that. Many of the people Taylor photograph come into it nervous and unsure of how to pose. With her experience both in front of and behind the camera, Taylor gives you specific direction of how to look your best and also captures your authentic personality. Taylor believes that there is something special about every person she photographs...she looks for it and captures it. No worries. You aren't alone if you don't think you're photogenic. Leave it to us. We love what we do...making you look amazing and fabulous in a photograph! If you love the images you see on this site, you will love the images we create about you, for you.
You get to decide based on many unique and amazing locations that we offer! Upon booking your date with us we will provide you with options and discuss what you like, what you want and what your vision is. We'll help you with this if you aren't sure. By the way, many of the images you see on our site were created using the home/property of our clients. That's always an option and it allows for unique, one-of-a-kind images. Either way, your images will be unique, modern and completely you.
When budgeting for your senior experience, you should account for both the session fee and the product investment. The final amount that you ultimately invest is entirely dependent on you, as everyone’s individual preferences for displaying their final images may vary and our services are completely customized to you and your needs. The session fee is paid at the time you book your experience, and is non-refundable. This fee covers the personalized consultation, the planning and preparation for the session, the time and talent of the photographer during the session, professional makeup, the hours spent on image preparation/editing and the sales appointment where you view and select your images and products. The session fee does not include any image or products, and is a non-refundable fee that is required in order to secure your consultation, session date and sales appointment on our calendar. The session fee DOES INCLUDE a $100 print credit that goes toward your purchases of products.
The final amount that you ultimately invest is entirely dependent on you! You can purchase the images you love! When all is said and done, my average clients typically spend between $1300-2100.
We photograph seniors all year long starting in June the summer before senior year all the way through graduation! We book months in advance all year long, so we do suggest getting on our schedule early.
We photograph most of our sessions outdoors, so weather definitely plays a role in our photo shoot with you! We never compromise your photo day and never take a chance, so if rain or heavy winds are in the forecast we simply reschedule a day that works for you!
Absolutely! We are available for destination sessions outside of the Central Valley and California upon request.
It's important to wear what you love that represents your unique style. Upon booking your session we will provide you with our Senior Welcome Guide which includes tips and suggestions with resources on how to pull together the looks you'll love in your photos including the top trends and fashions.
Absolutely! We provide makeup done by a professional artist. We know how to apply makeup specific to photography so this is a fabulous option for that camera-ready look. You can choose to add-on hair, for a $49 additional cost.
Within 5 to 10 days you will come into the studio to meet with Taylor and view your images presented in a showcase premier slide-show created just for you. This gives you an opportunity to view, touch and feel the quality of our products to decide exactly how you want to display your favorite images. We offer exclusive designs for wall gallery displays, gorgeous senior announcements, premier books and albums, luxe senior art-pieces and digital images for web and print. Your sales appointment is the time where you will come to the studio to view the images from your session and make your final selections to purchase. As such, we require that all decision makers are present at this appointment. Collections range between $200-$1,800 and there are a la carte options as well.
Yes! If you would like to opt-out of the makeup artist and hair styling, your session fee will be lowered to $300. However, I would HIGHLY advise you to take advantage of the makeup included as our artists are trained for the perfect *photoshoot* makeup.
