Kali Photography

the senior experience

hey, future grad!

By far one of my favorite things about being a photographer is getting to be a little part of your year of “lasts”, whether that be your last home game, or your last final. Let me be your personal hype woman + celebrate YOU while you prepare for all of the excitement ahead of you!

I’m here for…

The excited & joyful senior, who just cannot WAIT for their senior experience. 

I’m here to celebrate you.

I can’t wait to help you look like the most natural and confident version of yourself, while letting your personality shine through your images. We will create images that freeze time during your senior year, and preserve the memories you have made and the joy and excitement that you feel. My heart is so full being able to be a part of your senior experience, we will become the best of friends. Now let’s get started!

01. Book & Get Excited

Once I have received your inquiry, I will be in touch to reserve a photoshoot date! I will also email you a questionnaire that helps me get to know you before your session, and how I can serve you best, along with a contract and invoice to hold your reservation. All dates are at a first come, first serve basis, and all pieces are due back to reserve your spot. 

I will be in touch about 2 weeks prior to your date with your session schedule. 

You will also receive my exclusive Senior Style Guide, that will walk you thru my tips & tricks for preparing for your senior session! You are never too early to start preparing for it, so the day is a breeze when you get there. All you have to do is show up and have fun!  

02. Your Session Day!

This is where the real fun begins….your session day! We will meet at a predetermined meeting spot (most often your first location) and finalize any outfit and location choices. We will spend the next little bit capturing your laughs, beauty and excitement! Don’t worry about any modeling experience, I will teach you everything you need to know about being in front of the camera, including posing, facial expressions, and hand placement. I’ll probably ask you to do all sorts of silly things like laugh behind your shoulder or walk toward me. It might feel nerve racking prior to your session, but you will have a blast! 

Almost all sessions take place a few hours before sunset, so plan to be with me until then. 

03. STYLE AND FLOURISH

After your senior session, I carefully work through your session’s images to find the best of the bunch, and adjust lighting to add my joyful, timeless style! 

I am careful not to heavily retouch images, as my motto is if it isn’t going to be there next week, I will make sure its not there in your pictures, so your cute freckles and birthmarks stay where they are! Instead, I will do a lot of things during the session to make sure the images are turning out as flawless as possible on camera! One of the best compliments that I can receive from someone is that the images that I provide to them are exactly as they remember their senior – joyful, natural and glowing.

04. the Gallery reveal

Within 3 weeks following your session, you will receive a beautiful, easy to use online gallery, where you can download, share and order your prints. Super simple! I promise, you will never run out of pictures for #seniorsunday! If you follow me on social meida, you may see a sneak peak or two of your images too! 

This gallery allows you to view, share and download your high resolution images all within the gallery site. You can purchase a variety of prints and print products within the site, if you choose, and sharing with friends & family is made easy!

FAQ

Once you have decided to book KP for your senior experience, you should inquiry and get on the list! Even if it’s 6 months are more away, the date will come up on us too soon and I want you to be prepared! My books open sometimes 4-5 months out, and I don’t want you to miss out!

Once you book, I walk you right through the process! You should expect to have SO much fun, while capturing some beautiful pictures for you to remember this joyous time in your life. The best part is, no modeling experience is needed, I walk you through everything you need to know!

NO! In fact, all of the incredible seniors that you see on my social media and website are all real seniors just like you! I will walk you through everything you need to know about being in front of the camera. It may feel a little silly to do some of the things, like walking toward the camera or placing your hands on your face. But I promise, you will love the result if you trust the process!

All of my galleries are delivered in a similar, cohesive shooting and editing style, that I often refer to as bright and bold! I love the style that I work in, and I hope you do too! I do not make exceptions to this style, to ensure that I can meet all of my clients’ gallery expectations.

My favorite compliment that I received often from senior sessions is that my clients look like themselves – but in a happy and bright light! Your senior’s images will reflect what they look like at that time, for you to remember for years to come. My rule is, if it won’t be there in a week, it won’t be in your pictures! Therefore, things like birth marks, freckles, certain scars, will all remain, but bruises and major breakouts will be retouched. Advanced skin smoothing, major acne removal, teeth whitening and more can often times make clients look like a less authentic version of themselves. For this reason, I do not offer retouching services that are extensive. If you have any requests in this area, just ask, I do some of these edits for a fee.

My gallery delivery site allows you a seamless ordering process, whether you choose individual prints or greeting cards and heirloom albums.

Rain and inclement weather are just part of the photography game, unfortunately. The phrase “no rain, no flowers” is very true, so we do need some rain days in the mix. For this reason, I schedule in rain days into my schedule, in case it does rain and I need to move your session. My goal is always to keep the session planned until right up until a couple hours before, in case the weather decides to turn out in our favor. I only want the best for my clients, so trust me that I will do what it takes to get the perfect session day for you!

As a natural light photographer, I rely heavily on sun placement and lighting to give me these bright, glowy images that I’m well known for. For this reason, I shoot a majority of my work during the time of day referred to as “golden hour”, which starts around 2 hours before sunset. This time provides the most flattering light and Kali loves!

I use an online gallery site to deliver your high resolution digital images. This gallery beautifully sorts, displays and shares your images, with the option of purchasing products directly from the site for an affordable price. It’s a one stop shop!
