SENIORS & TEEN Portraits

Your story matters.

Your high school years are special. Senior year marks the transition from family life at home to that next stage; the beginning of adulthood, college, a job, moving away from home. Capture portraits of that special time that will be treasured forever. As a mother of a college student, I know how teenagers rapidly evolve into young adults when they leave the house for the first time.  Their transition to adulthood is evident each time they come home to visit!

A Planet Photo Seniors and Graduate Session can be held on location or in the studio (or both), with multiple outfit changes. I will even help you style your session. It will be fun though and I guarantee you will love the portraits!

YOUR STORY. YOUR STYLE.

Be the star of your photoshoot

SESSiON PLanning

We do that together

Locations

Do you have a favorite spot that triggers memories? I love to incorporate locations that mean something to you. Athletes who spend all their time at the track or dancers who always have their dance bag in the car? We will discuss locations at the consultation and combine your favorites with my suggestions to come up with our plan. 

STYLING & make-up

I will help you out here! I will send you a style guide to get you started and then we get together to choose outfits for your photo shoot. All Planet Photo clients can borrow items from the Studio closet. I have some pretty fun accessories too!  

Make up for a photo shoot is a little different from every day make up and I want you to look and feel your very best. It’s included in the Headline and Feature packages

TIMING

The best time of day for your shoot depends on a number of factors. Do you prefer an urban or natural setting?  Would you like to shoot at the studio? Depending on the time of year we might meet early or late in the day to get the best light at your favorite location. 

Some people will do anything for fall colors but we cannot guarantee the weather or the seasons. Don’t worry I can help you figure that all out.

FAQ

most frequently asked questions

Yes and No…

You don’t have to have a certain look, style or body type so you don’t have to look like a fashion model, but you do have to be a “model” influencer. Someone that can influence others to be kind, inclusive and inspirational to others. 

Simply put…. have you seen the school senior photos? A Planet Photo Senior session is a true representation of who you are and what your interests are. We style and plan the session to showcase you! Everyone is unique, why not show that?

Nope. Some of the best portraits are in every day clothes. I create a pinterest board to guide you and at our shoot consultation we discuss styling. All clients can also borrow from the style closet. 

Of course not! Teen sessions can be booked at any time and are often booked in conjunction with birthday milestones, double digits, teenager or sweet sixteen.

Yes! If you want to bring along one friend or sibling for moral support then no problem….I can always use an extra assistant 😉 but think about how you feel having your photo taken in front of your friend. If they are going to make you self conscious then meet them towards the end of the session. I find that groups of friends are a distraction though so only ONE friend. After all your senior portrait experience is all about YOU!

Details, details, details! I will help you plan out the look and style of your session. We choose the location and discuss clothes, I love it if you bring your wardrobe ideas with you. I can help add the layers and details that add interest to your images. Your style will determine our location choices, if you have an edgy style then a field of wild flowers might not be our first choice! 

10-14 days after your session you come in for your ordering appointment. I help you choose the images that will work for you and your family. I have samples of all manner of wall art, albums, a portfolio box of matted prints and I can help you design a wall collection for your home.

Yes! I have a passport and I love to travel but time and life can sometimes get in the way, so obviously we need to discuss the details. Give me a call and we can talk about it.

After your ordering session I will provide a custom app for your mobile phone of the images you have selected and purchased so that you can share those with family and friends. 

A lot of time and effort goes into planning the senior portrait experience, minimum purchases give you an idea of your photography budget and help you pick the package that is best for you. Packages and payment plans are available. 

I will guide you through product selection at your ordering appointment. Digital files are part of some of my product collections but my goal is to show you high quality products that enable you to share and enjoy your portraits in your home. 

It’s up to you if you want a parent to be present throughout your portrait session although they usually would like to be there! Parents are required to come to the pre-session consultation and the ordering appointment.
