Why do my portraits need to be taken in the summer?
You need to be photographed in the summer months because of yearbook publishing deadlines.
What if I can’t make it on the scheduled days at the high school?
We understand that summer is a busy time for vacations.If you can’t make your scheduled time, it is your responsibility to call us and let us know.
We will have a makeup day at the high school in the fall.However, sessions are not as thorough.
It's imperative this year that make your best effort to make a summer appointment. We are not sure what this fall will look like.
Can I go to another photographer for my personal portraits?
You may go to any photographer for your personal photographs.
We would love the opportunity to work with you, but you are not obligated to come to us for your personal photographs.
What if I decide later that I want to have a more elaborate session at your studio?
We get asked this all the time.If you come to the high school for your yearbook portrait, you still have the option to come to us for a more elaborate session.
What about my hair?
Make sure your hair is exactly like you want it. We do not offer re-shoots for bad hair days. Don't get your hair cut the day before your session, and remember to bring styling products to keep any long hair out of your eyes. Bangs that hang in front of your face cause unflattering shadows. Doing hair and make up at the school will take away from your session. Come prepared. We will have a mirror available.
What should I wear?
Thin, form-fitting shirts show every contour.
Sleeveless tops will make you look heavier, and horizontal stripes are always a bad idea.
Solid dark colors work best. It's more flattering when you see your face first while your portrait.
This is a head and shoulder photograph. Full outfits are not necessary.
What about blemishes?
Don't worry about them. We have them covered.
What about glass glare?
We have you taken care. We will photograph you in a way that eliminates or minimizes any reflection. If there is any remaining glare we can't take care of through creative lighting, we will remove it in post production.
