Today I will be answering some of most frequently asked questions while sharing beautiful images from Delaney's Senior Experience | class of 2023 Bishop Moore High school !
"How far in advance I should book my senior portrait Experience ?"
We usually book out about 𝟑-𝟒 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐡𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐚𝐝𝐯𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞. Yes... THAT EARLY! WHY?!? Because we like to prepare for your senior session in advance so that it isn’t a hurried thrown together mess the day of your session. So that means if you want a SPRING session, NOW is the time to book! 👀
We also want ✨ YOU ✨ to have as much input as possible so that your senior session is incredibly customized to your personality, inspiration, and vision.
“What locations will we shoot at?”
T𝐡𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐰𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐝𝐞𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐬 𝐨𝐧;
1️⃣ 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲: if you are a nature girl at heart and want to be one with Mother Earth, your locations will be outside in the warm sun surrounded by greenery and blooms. We can frolic in the fields, pose in the posies, and walk the trails of tall grass! If you’re more of a city girl, we’ll shoot in concrete jungles, modern architecture, and downtown styles. Most of our clients are a bit of both, so we usually shoot in a variety of these locations.
2️⃣ 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐬𝐭𝐲𝐥𝐞: we love to match our clients’ outfits to locations for a cohesive look! If your outfit screams night out on the town, we’ll likely shoot in a more modern downtown location. Wearing a billowy maxi dress? We’re shooting in the fields! It just makes sense!
3️⃣ 𝐋𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭: one of the most important times during our sessions is called the “golden hour” when the light is about one hour from going down. This is when you can usually find us shooting in the tall grass with that perfect backlit rim on our subjects! Locations before this hour are usually heavily decided on by how the light falls on our subject!
Can I do a really natural makeup look?
Heck yes you can! Our professional makeup artists can give you ANY look you want - from super glam to super natural, you get to control how you look in your senior pictures.
What should I wear for my senior session?
I would never force any of my clients to wear anything that they don’t want to. You can absolutely wear whatever you want, mix or wear outfits made up completely from your your fashion closet. The choice is 100% yours.
At your fashion consultation you will receive the printed magazine to help you style your looks and pick the best locations for your senior session.
3 things that make us different from other local area ⠀
1. Unmatched senior session prep: Worried about what to wear for your session? How about makeup and hair styling ideas? We got you covered! Long before your session, we send you detailed resources about how to best prepare for your session with us including: face & hair prep tips, our fave shops to curate your outfits, nail prep tips, and so much more!
2. In-person consultation: about 2 weeks prior to your senior session, I will personally meet with you and we will plan out what to wear for your senior session. This meeting is incredibly helpful and allows you to feel prepared for your epic shoot!
3. I won't rush your session: Most studios only offer 60-90 minutes sessions. Not me! Most of our sessions last 2-3 hours to ensure I document every unique aspect of your personality, provides plenty of time for you to feel relaxed, and to allow for a variety of looks!
4. Editing process: I pride myself on a clean editing process that won't make you look like you're made of plastic. I also won't apply crazy filters that make it look like edited portraits with an Instagram filter. I believe in editing that highlights beautiful light and colors while maintaining your skin tone and texture.
