Annual Collegiate Career Photoshoot (August)
November 19, 2020 - November 20, 2020
THE PROCESS: THE 411 FROM SHOOT TO PRODUCT
DESIGNING YOUR SESSION
📷 We pride ourselves in not being the typical “one size fits all” studio and work extremely hard to create a unique experience for each senior. For that reason, we offer a complimentary consultation at our home studio where we would meet to discuss the look you desire from your portraits, fashion options, as well as how we might be able to meet your needs more specifically.
DAY OF YOUR SESSION
📷 The typical senior photo session will last about 1-2.5 hours.
📷 You will be photographed in as many outfits as time allows, so be a quick change artist! You will have plenty of time and clothing options to get the images that most represents you.
📷 You don’t need to know what to do. We’ll take the worry out of posing and guide you through each step of the process. Be yourself, relax and have fun! Remember, it’s not just a photo shoot…it’s an EXPERIENCE!
AFTER YOUR SESSION
📷 A week or two after your photo shoot, you will return to the studio to view and order your images. Your edited images will be projected larger than life on a big screen which will make it easier to pick your favorites and place your order.
4-5 WEEKS AFTER ORDERING
📷 Your finished portraits will be ready for pickup or home delivery
EVENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
CONTACT DAVID H. SMITH TO CONFIRM ALL EVENT VENUES AND TIMES
Let your portraits reflect your unique personality and sense of style. Dresses or tops that are sleeveless or have spaghetti straps are beautiful, but they do NOT photograph well. Instead, wear clothes that are well fitted, tops with sleeves and are brightly colored with minimal patterns.
Add a touch of sparkle and shine with accessories that compliment or complete an outfit. Pieces like necklaces, bracelets, rings, belts, hats, and earrings can pull an outfit together and add a special pizazz!
#3 LAYER IT UP
Layering is an easy way to accomplish a variety of different looks during your session, When you add a simple scarf, a jacket or a cardigan, your portraits can go from simple to WOW in just seconds!
#4 MIX IT UP
What’s your style? Boho chic? Preppy? Casual? Knowing what style represents you and dressing accordingly will allow your portraits to stand out from the rest. You also want your photos to be a timeless memento that is passed down to your children, so resist the urge to pick clothing pieces that are too trendy. You don’t want to look back at your portraits in 10 years and say, “What was I thinking?”
#5 FINISHING TOUCHES
You may not realize it, but hair, make-up and nails play just as an important role in your portraits as your outfits. For nails, make sure they look nice, so why not treat yourself to a mani-pedi! You will want to be the best YOU possible, so consider having your make-up and/or hair done by a professional stylist. Eye, cheek or lip color can make the difference between a good photo and a GREAT photo. This can be done a few hours before your scheduled session time. Need some recommendations? Just ask.
