A Senior Session with KP
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. You will be told time after time that “You only graduate once” and THEY ARE RIGHT! Whether you are a future high school grad or a college grad, this is an exciting time in your life! Let me be your personal hype woman while you prepare for your adventures and celebrate your accomplishments!
I’m here 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!
Here’s the Details:
I’m proud that all of my packages include a completely personalized senior portrait experience with me. I completely understand how the year flies by and your time as a senior is limited, and due to these restrictions, it is best to contact me as early as possible to book!
Packages & Extras
All packages include a personalized senior portrait experience with me and a fully edited online gallery where you can view, share and order your gorgeous fully edited, high resolution digital images. You will receive your gorgeous gallery within 3 weeks after your session – and I promise you will never run out of pictures for #seniorsunday. Once your session is booked you will have access to my exclusive Senior Styling Guide, which is my go-to tips and tricks for the day of your session, and includes contacts for hair & makeup and styling options!
1. Book your Session and Prepare!
Every senior session with KP is completely personalized to celebrate who you are and all of your accomplishments! First, you will need to contact me (using the contact form below) to book your date. Once we have settled on a date, then comes the fun stuff!
2. Preparing for your session!
Once you have booked, you will receive a questionnaire that will give me lots of insight into who you are, so we can personalize your senior experience! You will also receive access to my KP Style Guide, which is my go-to tips and tricks for making the most perfect outfit choices that will make you look amazing in front of the camera. Feel free to send me pictures and ask me any questions that you have regarding outfit choices. Preparing in advance for your session means that your session is breeze and all you have to do is show up and have fun!
3. Your Session Day
This is where the real fun begins….your session day! A few days before your session, I will send you a final email recapping locations and meeting places, as well as hair and makeup – if you purchased the Full Senior package. 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!
4. My Editing Process
After your senior session, I will carefully cull through the hundreds of pictures that I take to find the very best of the bunch, making sure you look your best in each and every one! I’m very careful not to heavily Photoshop my images, so my seniors receive a full gallery of images where they look their most natural and beautiful selves. 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.
5. The Reveal + Order Prints
Within 3 weeks after 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! As of March 30th 2021, all senior sessions include the high resolution images included in the session fee! You will be able to download the images directly from the site to a computer, and share, print and enjoy for years to come. (Sessions booked prior to March 15th: My personalized pricing structure allows for much lower session fees, which allow my clients to pick whether digital images or print options are the right choice for them, and order accordingly. High Resolution digital image purchases start at $100 for your entire gallery, which will allow you to keep all the images with a print release for printing at a later time.) You can also purchase prints and print products, directly from your gallery, so you can purchase individual products and build your own personalized packages.
6. Share Your Image
I LOVE seeing my seniors post their images on social media! I especially love it when you tag me and use our hashtags, #kaliphotography and #KPSenior, and I feature many of my seniors on my page!
