Thank you for your interest in Nicole Gee Photography. My favourite session type is senior/grads, so I work really hard at making sure you get amazing portraits.
It all starts with a free consultation. I get to know your thoughts, ideas on locations, style, etc. We discuss props that we can incorporate into the photography session -- do you play guitar, for instance. Or perhaps your grad is really into sports -- how can we incorporate that element into your photos? I love it when my clients bring their pets, too.
One of my favourite grad sessions took place a few years ago, when she asked if we could do a 50s theme. You bet! I contacted a local diner and arranged for the photo session to take place inside. The grad found 50s style clothing ... even did her hair & makeup 50s style. She looked adorable! And I had a blast playing with different lighting effects to really showcase her style. The diner staff got into it, too -- providing a milk shake, making sure the whip on top was perfect, etc. All in all, a fun afternoon. Both mother and daughter were thrilled with the images, and now own a lovely keepsake photo album as well as a wall display they cherish.
Senior/grad sessions are the most effective when my clients really take the time to think about their personality, interests, etc. and we incorporate them. Cars, trucks, and other vehicles are fun ... pets are awesome (horses! dogs! even cats!). You get the idea. I'll help with ideas on your grad's session theme, and provide clothing & accessories help, as well.
After the consultation, we schedule your photography session ... of course you rock it and we have a blast. Expect the senior/grad session to last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. You'll have a better idea of timing after our consultation :)
About two weeks after your session, we'll have schedule a view & choose session where you come to my home office and choose your images. I will have retouched 20 to 30 images for you to choose from. Yes, I sell digital files but encourage you to think beyond that (albums, collages, gift prints, etc) as most likely the digitals will sit in a folder on your laptop, forgotten. After all our time & effort in planning and executing a beautiful portrait session, let's print & frame your favourites so you can enjoy them!
Session fee is $325 and you receive $100 in print/product credit. The vendors I use provide extraordinary quality items -- whether you're interested in an album, prints, display box, or wall art. Promise: you will be thrilled.
