Class of 2015 Seniors…are you READY?

That’s right!!  It is our FAVORITE time of year!  Tiger’s Baseball is on, our daughter’s softball team is getting ready for action and IT’S TIME FOR SENIOR PORTRAITS!

Here’s some valuable information that you may need if you have a Class of 2015 Senior:

  • Generally speaking, yearbook committees require your senior photo to be provided in the fall so that they can finalize the layout and prep ordering.  Deadlines for seniors in our area:  Corunna is early October; Owosso / Perry / Morrice before December 1.  We know that all of it creeps up on you.  As a family, throughout the summer, you are probably dealing with vacations, sports schedules as well as open houses / weddings, etc.  It’s easy to keep putting things off thinking you have plenty of time to get them done.
  • You can always schedule your “traditional” session separate from your “casual” session.  We don’t charge extra for an additional session!  In fact sometimes, it’s just easier to do them separately.
  • LAYERS, Layers, layers!!  I can’t stress how helpful layers are when planning your portraits.  Even when offering “unlimited outfits” as part of the deal, changing your clothes takes time.  You can change your look by removing or changing a jacket / sweater / exterior shirt.  Also, some venues don’t make for a great place to change your clothes.
  • Finishing touches: If your going to have your nails painted, make sure that they are fresh (toes too, if they are going to be showing).  Make-up may need to be freshened depending on the venue…if you’re sweating, it’s likely to run.  Wear appropriate shoes.  Although they aren’t always in the photo, there may be a pulled back shot or two that needs to be axed because your shoes don’t fit the rest of the look.

Have more questions?  Need to book your session(s) but not sure about where you want to go or how to plan?  Not sure if we are the photography studio for you?  WANT A FREE GIFT?  We are having a Class of 2015 Senior Event with snacks, FREEBIES and answers to your questions.  Come and check out our portfolio, ask your questions, and book your session all at the same time / place.  You’ll get a look at our studio and become familiar with us.  April 26, 2014 from 2 – 5pm at our home studio.  Can’t make it?  Set up your own personal / private tour of our studio, get your questions answered, and check out our portfolio by contacting Tracy at 989.743.1132 or
