Let’s be honest…your senior year is a BIG DEAL. I know some people are out there trying to downplay the whole thing, but really…it’s a big deal. You’ve spent years working your booty off – sometimes excelling, sometimes struggling – and you’ve been counting down to these final moments of celebration. Now life decides to take that away? Yeah, no thank you.
I am confident that life will move on. In 5…10…20 years, will you really be as heart broken as you feel right now? Probably not. I know for a fact that you will continue spending your years working towards new, bigger accomplishments. There will always be something new to look forward to. However, I truly feel that right now…right in this moment…you have every right to feel every emotion you are feeling. You’ve worked hard and you deserve celebration.
Your senior year is going to be different than just about every senior so far. Really, it’s true. I cannot say that anything nearly this large happened during my high school or college graduation year. I faced challenges, sure, but not what you are currently dealing with. My goal is to make lemonade out of those lemons and find some way to celebrate with you…ASAP.
Believe me, I know portraits won’t replace everything. I want to help make your memorable year a bit more memorable, a bit more unique. Let’s set up your complimentary session. Let’s make it all about you – custom to what you love and the person you are right now. Let’s run and dance and laugh; consider it a chance to have yourself and your big moments immortalized.
We are scheduling tentative dates for complimentary senior portraits beginning in June & July. I hope that all federal & state mandates will be lifted by this time (and OF COURSE that this corona scare is over by then, please please please). If the mandates are not lifted and it is still not legal or safe, we will push these sessions past – but I will continue to honor them.
The sessions are at NO COST to our seniors. We are waiving our session fee ($300) and allow seniors/their families to select from one of our packages listed below.
- Set of 3 Matted Gift Prints (8×10)
- A Mini-Accordion Album (3×3)
- Set of 25 Post Cards (4×6)
All sessions will included the heirloom printed package you select from the above that can be enjoyed for generations to come, as well as a photo app for social media sharing to enjoy in the moment! Additional images and prints will be available for purchase, but no minimum or purchase is required to participate. We want all seniors to be able to participate risk free with few obstacles in their way!
Seniors are encouraged to bring casual and formal attire, as well as cap ‘n gown. Hair & Makeup can be added to the senior’s session for $150. All sessions include styling, location, & product guidance.
As previously stated, these sessions are at no cost to our seniors. We are collecting a $25 refundable retainer to reserve each seniors space. This is a reduced fee as we understand this is a difficult time for all families in our community. Our schedule will be packed tightly with portraits once we are able to schedule again, so this fee simply reserves your space. This fee will be refunded or applied towards additional purchase for those who attend their session.
I want to thank you for your support and for putting your trust my studio to capture your important moments and create new memories. We are so thankful to be able to do this for you guys and cannot wait to get started. Right now, our studio is closed up due to coronavirus, so believe me I understand what it’s like to miss out on stuff you were looking forward to. All of our lives are so changed right now and I’m really looking forward to celebrating with you. I can’t wait to get started on portraits once this is all over – it will be a literal breath of fresh air!
Please share this opportunity with other seniors. At this time, we are not putting a limit on the number of seniors who can participate – the more the merrier – and once we reserve your spot, it’s reserved! So tell your friends. Everyone deserves something extra special right now!
