- DRP SENIOR SESSION -


Senior year of high school is not only an important time for the student, but for the parents as well. I want to make the transition of your teen soon-to-be-adult a little less stressful so allow me to capture their favorite memories of their high school years. I really want to get to know the teen, find out what types of events they're involved in. I like to make the sessions fun and relate closely to what your teen loves. Basically, I want to discover WHO your teen is and then portray that through their pictures. 

Your Session: I like to suggest you get your session together depending on what type of scenery you intend to include. If you're looking for wheat, look into a June session. If you're wanting to do some fun fall colors then make sure you don't book any earlier than the end of August. This is meant to highlight some of the teens favorite things so be sure to include special touches that will really make their shoot fun!

What To Wear: This all depends on the style of the teen. I suggest picking something you're comfortable in and go from there. Bring at least three or four outfit changes, you don't have to wear them all but you'll want enough choices to choose from while on spot. I suggest clothing without logos or wording as they'll stay timeless during the years to come. Instead of the old school rule of matching think of coordinating schemes to go with. Go outside your comfort zone and dress up a bit, remember you will cherish these photos for years to come so put a bit of thought into what you'd like to see yourself in.

What To Bring: I encourage you to bring along anything and everything your teen is involved in. This means any type of clubs, sports or even special hobbies. Anything that highlights this point in their life. Big into sports? Bring along their bat, knee pads, jerseys and a couple balls. If they're into dance then have them pull out their old costumes to play with and photograph. And if your teen does nothing but sit at home and hides while playing video games, bring the controller along! Also, you might want to include a class ring if you have purchased one. 

Time & Location: For on location shoots, I prefer shooting right before sunset, that's always the best lighting but we can do a morning session if needed. Sessions usually last about two hours depending on locations and the amount of changes we do. If we need to go longer than the two hours I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If your teen is a sports player we'll of course work in some field time to get them out there in their element. If they're a race car driver, lets get on the track and take some shots with their car. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

Session Fees: $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting. The items listed below are what your session will cover. I will honor the session price quoted if you've requested one but prices are subject to change.

Senior Session Fee is $200.00

Session Fee Includes:
  • One to two hours of shoot time
  • Location of your choice as discussed prior to the day of the shoot
  • Unlimited outfit changes 
  • 30 edited high resolution images
  • Black and white conversions of all edited photos
  • Album located on my website with all of your images displayed, we can add pass code if you'd like as well
  • Prints ordered off of the website at lab cost (They're set at my cost level so you're getting professional lab quality prints at a major discount)
  • Photographer's time, talent, editing and travel expense :)
  • 25% Discount on all print products for the month after your session is completed

          Extras: Something new I've launched this past year in 2014 is that I am no longer offering a cd with full print rights included in my packages. To read more about my reasons for choosing to change this please read my post with the details. Instead I've choosen a "a la carte" style package so you can pick and choose what you'd like to include with your purchasing from your session.
          • Social Media Digital Downloads - $10 
            These are low resolution files with Dirt Road Photogrpahy logo on them to be used for social media sites. These are mainly intended for those who are wanting to share what fun they had during their session but don't have intentions of ordering other digital related prints.
          • CD with all edited images and full copyright release - $75
            This is for you to take your images and have them printed wherever you prefer. I realize that a lot of people have worked with other photographers and this is simply the easiest way for you to receive hard copies of your photograph's but 85% of clients do not even print their photos. I highly suggest printing them right away!
          • Prints off of website - 25% Discount 
            This is something I offer for all sessions so you can get lab quality prints at a lower price. I like to give clients a discount to encourage them to order right away so they don't forget! It's also a nice way to share with family members that they're welcome to order prints for themselves as well!
          • Proof book- $45
            Some people like to have a book to show others what they can order from their session, it's also a great way to have all your pictures printed into one book to look at later and share with friends
          • Additional Edits - $10/image
            If you would like more images than allotted per package we can add them onto your session. Keep in mind that by adding more images to your session it may take longer for you to receive them as I will need more time to complete your session.
          • Specialty Products - Prices Vary
            There are so many customized fun products we can do with your pictures so make sure to check out the link with other product ideas. From phone cases to customized invitations we can do it all!
