Do you need Senior photos but, you have no idea where to start?
No worries, that is where we can help. Senior photos are some of the most creative sessions we do.
Just relax and have fun. Senior photos are all about capturing who you are at this time in your life. I will give you tons of ideas and directions throughout your session to help you feel at ease. I find the best photos to be the candid photos because that is when you are at your most relaxed state.
Senior sessions typically take about 2 to 3 hours with as many outfit changes as we can fit into the session! We often hit two locations.
You may be nervous at first but you’ll soon relax and find your groove. Still unsure? Bring a friend. We find that it makes the experience that much more memorable. Plus, we love friends because they can make you have the best belly laughs.
Booking is as simple as sending an email or picking up the phone. Fall sessions book about 6-8 weeks in advance.
Once you have a date there are a few things to start thinking about.
What is your style?
Are you more Urban Chic? Plan your outfits with a edgy style elements. Leggings, band tees or fun graphic word tee’s paired with tall boots create a statement. Bring items that can be pieced together or separate. And don’t forget accessories. Bracelets, beanie hats, glass etc. The more you bring the more fun we can have with the styling.
Maybe your fashion statement is a bit more organic with a touch of free spirit. Boho attire is an amazing look in fields, at sunset and even some local streams for your senior photos. Pair a flowy skirt with a flowered top and even add in a headpiece. These sessions are sure to bring out your inner spirit.
Think you are a bit more casual? Short jackets, blouses, denim and ankle boots might be simple apparel but, this is the perfect outfit to begin your shoot to create a relaxed look. Be sure to bring some accessories to switch out.
And, don’t be afraid to Glam it up. Columbus offers some great locations for classy looking senior photos. What will be your WOW outfit? Sequins, long dresses, pumps and shiny accessories will have you feeling chic and glamorous.
Are you an athlete or musician that wants to go the extra mile for a creative and definitely unique digital senior photo? New this year we are offering digital senior sports photo montages. The session add ons are certainly a wow-factor when it comes to showcasing your athletic and musical talents.
Now that we have addressed your attire you should start thinking about make-up and color tones. Clothing colors should be complimentary to your skin and hair color. Even if you don’t wear make-up day to day, we ask that you put on a little extra to help enhance the beauty you already have. Hair and make-up artists are available the day of your session for an additional fee.
Prior to your session there will be a clothing consultation.
Where to shoot senior photos?
Columbus has so many great locations including our amazing Metro Parks in Hilliard, Dublin, Westerville, Upper Arlington and all around I270. For those that are headed towards a more Urban or cosmopolitan feel, downtown Columbus, Old Dublin, Old Worthington and lots of other gorgeous city locations are also great locations for senior pictures.
Our locations will be decided on once we determine your style and interests. We photograph in all Columbus suburbs and beyond Franklin County.
After the session
To tide you over and because we are just as excited as you are to see your photos, a sneak peak will be posted to our social media pages (Facebook and Instagram) so definitely head over to these sites to like and follow along.
About two weeks after you photo session you will receive a password protected gallery to view and order your photos. There will be anywhere from 25-45 images in your online photo gallery. These are fully retouched photos. Minor blemish removal is included in every session. More extreme retouching is available for an additional cost per image. These edits would include brace removal, clothing color change, and severe blemish removal.
To receive a full senior photo collection information and pricing sheet please contact Studio Williams. Each senior photo collection comes with an album and then they packages vary as to print sizes, custom signature boards, announcements, brag books etc. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions. We love to help. Yearbook photos will be submitted to your school by the studio only if your school allows for online uploads. If they require a print or CD that is the responsibility of the client to provide the photo.
Once your order is placed, payment can be made by check, credit card or cash. All orders are reviewed by the studio before credit card invoices are emailed out. This is to ensure the order was placed correctly. Orders must be paid in full before your order will be completed.
