The Process

Choosing a Photographer

Your choice of a photographer will affect how your unique personality is remembered for years to come, so it’s important to choose a professional you trust to capture your session with the style, services, and products that fit your needs. I have photographed high school seniors since 2000, and continue to push myself creatively in order to provide each and every client with a unique set of images that represents their individual sense of style, interests, and personality.

Booking Your Session

I offer portrait sessions Sunday through Friday, with studio options any time of day, and outdoor options in the evening. To officially book your day and time with Captured Moments Photography, your session fee retainer and you will be asked to sign a contract at your session.

During Your Session

Your session will be fun and relaxing. We’ll talk and laugh – and try a few serious facial expressions – as we walk around the locations we’ve selected. Friends and family members are more than welcome to join us! Feel free to bring several outfits (although we may not use them all), accessories, and items to commemorate your high school experience like sports gear, instruments, your letter jacket, class ring, etc.

 Post Processing (Editing

Your edited images will be color-corrected with exposure and contrast adjustments for a natural, clean look in each of your photos. Additional enhancements, such as blemish removal or other requested edits, are offered as well (additional fee applies).

Viewing Session or Online Gallery

Within a few days, I will finish editing the images from your session. You may choose to meet me at my studio for an in-person viewing and ordering session, or you may opt to receive an online gallery (available for 30 days) to view and order your images.

Printed Products and Books

Turnaround time for prints and products is based on the specific product you order. Once your final prints and products are in, they will be available for pick up in the studio. Or you may choose to have me deliver them to your doorstep if that is more convenient for you.

Tips for Choosing Your Outfits

Be yourself! Start with your own personal style. Think about the clothing styles you currently have and the stores where you normally shop. Wearing clothes that look good on you and reflect your personality will give you confidence during the session and will result in images you’ll be proud to share with your friends and family.

Consider the setting of where your session will take place. Will it be downtown, a park, the studio, or somewhere else? Imagine your setting and the types of colors that will be there. Since the setting is background of your photos, it has a big impact on your overall look. For example, if you plan to have the shoot at a garden, wearing floral prints or green tones might not be the best idea because you would blend in to the background. Ideally, you want to match the style of the background, while wearing colors that set you apart from it.

Colors – A good rule of thumb is to pick out two or three complimentary colors that would go well with the location. I find that blues, purples, and pastels go well with natural scenes. Bold colors and traditional tones (black, white, and gray) match modern locations like the city. Just steer clear of any reds and yellows that may be too close to your skin tone.

Below are three color pallets you can use as a guideline

    Save

Solids and Prints – Our eyes are naturally drawn to patterns, so don’t be afraid to incorporate some stripes or other patterns into your clothing. Adding coordinating solid colors will help complete the look. I recommend avoiding clothing with screen printed designs or wording (unless associated with your senior year and school activities), as they can be distracting.

Layering and Accessories – Consider layering your outfits with easy additions such as ties, scarves, jackets, cardigans, and hats. Paired with jewelry, you have several accessory options to easily modify your look.

Casual or Formal – Whether to bring casual or formal clothing – or some of both – is completely up to you! Again, it’s great to have options, so feel free to bring several complete outfits for your session.

General Guidelines

I recommend starting the session about two hours before sunset (depending on your session length) for the best natural light. I prefer to shoot in the shade to keep you in soft, won’t-make-you-squint-and-glare kind of light. We can even shoot at night for a unique look as well!

Unsure of what location(s) you’d like to use? I can help you! Just complete my Senior Questionnaire and I’ll provide you with several suggestions.

Be prepared to smile! And be prepared to show a serious side (no smile) as well.

Empty your pockets and remove any distracting items (hair ties, watches, clear braces or retainers) before the session begins.

Apply makeup as you normally would (and bring it with you during the session if you may need to reapply). Just don’t go overboard! You may also consider hiring a makeup artist (I have several I work with) for your session. Call me for pricing information.

If you normally wear glasses, consider wearing contacts with your frames and have an optician remove the lenses from your glasses for the session. Avoid Transitions lenses for outdoor photos.

If you tend to have oily skin, oil-absorbing wipes or powder is recommended.

Shave or trim facial hair. My high-resolution camera will see it all!

Visiting the tanning booth or using self-tanning lotion before pictures is not generally recommended.

Your hands and fingernails will appear in the photos! Trim and polish nails as necessary.

Bring a friend with you if you’d like! Having a friend along can help you relax and be yourself.

A parent/guardian is required to accompany subjects under 18 years of age.

Facial Touchups

Let’s face it (pun most certainly intended), annoying little blemishes can pop up at the most inconvenient times. If this happens before your session, don’t stress! My standard edits include subtle skin softening and teeth whitening if requested. Additional enhancement services such as blemish removal, under-eye lightening, fly-away hair removal, etc. are options that you may choose to purchase as upgraded edits after your session.

Your edits will be completely natural – I won’t make your skin look like plastic or like an airbrush monster attacked you; I’ll simply remove those little spots while making sure your skin looks natural and clear.
