calling the shots
Simply send us a message and tell us your name, major, expected graduation date, outfit changes and what ideas you have!
After we talk about your vision, we can talk about pricing and schedule a day that works best for you.
In order to actually secure your spot 50% retainer fee is required in order to book a session. The remaining balance is due on the day of the shoot. We will send out an invoice and a contract via email to sign electronically.
Now it's time to take your photos! In order to prepare for your shoot, check out our helpful tips below.
It is our goal to send a sneak peak within 1 week of your session. You will receive an online gallery of the edited photos within 2-3 weeks of your session. You will be able to download the photos. Also, if you have any special requests for a faster delivery please let us know asap.
All photoshoots come with a print release

grad shoot guide
clearing your schedule..
its best to schedule your grad session at-least 2-3 months in advance.. that way you can plan your outfits out accordingly..
PS: Don't procrastinate.. get it done so you can be stress free on the day of the shoot!
What time to take them?
early morning and during the afternoon an hour before sunset are the best times
it's so important to take weather into consideration !
Spring and Fall sessions are the absolute best.. that way you aren't sweating your booty off or freezing your booty off!
If rain occurs, we will reschedule your session.
it all depends on where you are graduating from right?
Tell us where you are located and we will come to you. Travel fees will occur. . but don't worry .. we know you are in college and it's affordable!
what to wear...
photos are all about you and your memories.. there is nothing wrong with being you! If you'd like to step up your style by a notch, add an accessory or a large statement piece.
oh.. yea.. and YOUR SCHOOL COLORS !!
hair & Makeup!!
cap & gown
so fellas... if a suite and tie is your thing.. go for it!
it looks so good underneath your gown.. if you like kewl socks.. rock those too!
now ladies... the dress under your gown is gonna be a HUGE statement piece..
what if I don't wear dresses?
YOU DON'T HAVE TOO!
these are your pictures..
if you like a pants suit or romper.. rock that! Be unapologetically you!
Whew , we loveeee make-up! It's not a necessity but it makes a difference in photos.
There is nothing ever wrong with an enhanced version of you. Hey, if you're not comfortable with a full face, a pop of a lip color can make a huge difference.
Make sure you bring powder and lipstick for touchups.. if needed!
Now with hair, the wind tends to blow sometimes... but we got you covered! Just bring a few hair accessories including a brush.
posed * Candid
how many pics?
many of the photos we shoot are half candid and half posed... we tend to capture many candid shots in between the moments you are preparing to be posed.. those are usually the best shots and our personal favorites !
Set your tone
make your photo session the highlight of your day.. don't put too much on yourself or plan too many things.. don't overthink or stress..
the vibe of your day can kinda affect your tone of the photo session.. relax, breath... and prepare to smile :)
empty your pockets
leave your phone and bags in the car.. you can put your keys in the camera bag..
minimalism is the absolute best!
this is a dependent on the session.. there are never two sessions alike.. now...we will provide you with an estimate number of images..
the images can range anywhere between 25-75 images.. or more :)
family + friends
it's okay to bring your family and friends to the shoot but be mindful that they can take away your session time.
PS: it's good to bring the most positive friends and family that impact you... negative ones can really take the joy away from your grad shoot!
be as open with us as possible.. if there is something that you are worried about prior to your session, TELL US!
You are hiring us for a reason and we want you to have the best experience ever!
we are very detailed oriented and want to make sure you always feel beautiful in your own skin.
missing a loved one?
if you have a picture of a family member that is deceased ... show it to us prior to your shoot and we can incorporate them into your shoot
portraits are typically ready within 2-3 weeks..
we will send you a link to your email with your images. you will be able to download them on your mobile device or computer.. then you can print them anywhere you like.. a copyright release will be provided. If you need any print suggestions, we've got you covered!
