Congratulations on your accomplishments! Graduating is a huge deal and one of life’s greatest milestones. You’ve changed so much since you first started on your education journey and there is no better way to showcase all you’ve accomplished than with a photo session. I plan your senior session with you in mind through a session planning questionnaire specific for seniors! You are encouraged to incorporate into your session your hobbies, awards, extracurricular activities, and whatever else you’re into! I'll help you choose the locations and outfits that best represent you and who you are and we will have fun photographing the serious and the silly so that you have a variety of images to choose from in your gallery. It would be my honor to help you tell your story as you close this chapter of your life and start a new one1
A small collection of some of my favorite senior portrait images.
There's no shame in making this milestone all about you! Like many parts of senior year, your senior photos are a rite of passage! Senior year is a time of personal growth and self-discovery. Senior photos provide an opportunity to reflect on how far you've come and celebrate the person you've become throughout your high school or college years. I offer senior sessions for both high school seniors and college seniors. Senior sessions weren’t popular when I was in college and I really feel like I missed out. Learn from my mistakes and plan to get a senior session for both!
Another benefit to getting your senior portraits taken is that the photos can provide you with a more polished and sophisticated representation of yourself, which might be useful for job applications, college applications, or social media profiles. Whatever your reasons, I’d love to be your Chattanooga senior photographer!
“Christian took beautiful photos of my daughter for her Senior Portrait session and of our family all together. I could not be happier with her attention to detail. She took her time and made sure to capture our personalities. I highly recommend for any occassion!”
We start by discussing what elements are important to you. Do you have a sport or hobby you want to highlight? Do you play any musical instruments or create art? Do you have any awards or accomplishments you want to celebrate? We can focus on the school you've called home the last 4 years or the new chapter you'll be starting! A senior portrait session is all about you so I will use your ideas and style to create senior photos you'll look back on and love as they represent you exactly as you are at this time in your life.
It’s like a regular senior session but for you and your best friends! You can each get individual senior photos as well as photos together! You can even include friends who aren’t seniors yet. I offer discounts when friends book their sessions together so let me know if you and your besties are in!
The senior session fee starts at $200 and image collections start at $250. You don't select your image collection until after you see all of the fully edited images in an online gallery. This way you only pay for the ones you love! My clients plan to spend a minimum of $450+ on their session after the final images are selected. Most plan to spend $750+ after images are selected.
Anytime the summer before up to the spring of graduation. Fall and Spring are popular times. What season do you like best? Plan your photos around what you love!
Generally, no. However, if you would like to include a family photo or sibling photos as part of the senior session, let me know and we can plan to include whatever you need!
More outfits mean more photos to choose from in your gallery. If you are only planning to purchase a few photos, then you will want to keep it to one outfit but if you know you will want lots of photos, then you’re welcome to bring 2-3 outfits. If you have questions about which outfits to choose, I’m happy to help!
That's up to you! If that is something you like, then yes! This is the perfect excuse to pamper yourself. Even if you prefer a natural look, a professional can help make you look and feel your best for your photos. You should do whatever makes you feel the most comfortable!
It depends on your session and how many locations and outfits you want to incorporate. Larger galleries will take more time but I would let you know if that were going to be the case. My typical turnaround time is 2-3 weeks.
I get it. I’m the same way and I still struggle with those things! Let me know what your concerns are and we can work up a plan that makes you comfortable. That might include professional hair and makeup or the timing of your session. I also use or don’t use certain poses or prompts so as to minimize your insecurities and emphasize all your best qualities! I genuinely believe everyone is beautiful and it’s my job to help you see the beauty in yourself too.
Yes, yes, and yes!! I’ve done photos with all of those and more! Whatever makes you, YOU, and shows off how you like to celebrate should definitely be included. Some locations have rules as to what is allowed and we will discuss the best way to get exactly what you want in our planning call.
Each senior will get individual photos as well as several group shots. We will plan your session to include plenty of time to capture you and your friends in your elements and interacting naturally with each other. Including a friend in your session helps both of you to relax and look and feel more natural in photos!
No worries! Message me your question and I’ll get right back to you.
Our entire lives are made up of many milestones! The older I get, the more important I believe these milestones are because they give us a moment to look back on afterward and remember more clearly. Would you like a free consultation to discuss a senior photo session? Message me now to get started!
