They all refer to the same thing. Each year well over ten thousand students in Metro Detroit flock to chain photography studios that their school district contract for their annual yearbooks. As a result, thousands of students end up sitting in front of mottled backdrops or, worse, behind cheesy 3 foot tall letters that spell S-E-N-I-O-R. The end result is are the same boring portraits as everyone else. Why? Because they’re all using the same lighting, the same backgrounds, the same posing stands and given the same directions like “Tilt your head to the right”, “Lift your chin up”, “Move your hand to your left” and … “Look at the camera”.
Those images are referred to C.P. images … copy – paste … copy – paste … copy – paste. But, you really can’t blame the discounted photography chain can you? They’re often staffed with part-time college students that were given a “Guide Book” that shows them where to place the student, where to put the lights and where to stand when they push the button. It’s all they know.
Unfortunately, many students (and parents) have not realized that Lifestyle Senior Photography has evolved far beyond indoor photography chains and green screens (Yup. Green screens. Just like the weatherman!). In fact, if you are attending a large public school like those throughout Metro Detroit, the options are limitless. Literally! Having to “settle” is a thing of the past. CHOOSE to LOVE your Senior Portraits!
With that said, Seniors fall into one of three groups:
A) Don’t understand they have options because their school dictated to them that they must go to “Studio X”.
B) Realize options may exist but feel they can’t be exercised for a plethora of excuses.
C) Have made a CHOICE to LOVE their lifestyle senior portraits.
If you are reading this, you are clearly not in Category A listed above or else you wouldn’t be exploring options.
On the flip side, if you are in Category C, welcome aboard! We are glad you’ve made the CHOICE to LOVE your Senior Portraits! Go ahead and contact us online or call us at 313-883-9500 so we can start planning an extraordinary session with you!
If you fall into Category B, well … you see … the truth is, EVERY Senior has options. If your school has contracted with a specific chain studio for the yearbook headshot, you can still CHOOSE to have your Lifestyle Senior Portraits done elsewhere … outside and on-location. CHOOSE to make a memorable experience, one that celebrates YOU! CHOOSE to LOVE your Senior Portraits!
Our Creative Team is highly trained and regularly works with agency-signed modeling talent. Combine that with our award-winning portrait sessions (We were Voted #1 for Best Portrait Photography in Detroit!) and you have a winning formula for Senior Pictures sessions!
The process begins with conversations about YOU. We will discuss what you are interested in, who you are … essentially what makes you YOU. From this we’ll select a location that can help bring your best out and capture memorable photos in a more photojournalistic style starting at only $125 for a 1 1/2 hour outdoor on-location session and print packages starting at only $45!
Best of all, there are never any additional charges for wardrobe changes, there are no maximums to the number of shots we’ll take and there’s NO pressure to make a print selection “on the spot”! In addition, proofs are hosted online for 10 days to allow adequate time for friends and family to review them in the comfort of their own home and place an order for prints and other products with a low $100 minimum.
Every senior pictures session includes:
- Unlimited locations as allowed by session time.
- Unlimited clothing changes as allowed by the session time.
- Pre-Session planning/styling consultation via email, phone or text.
- An amazing experience from BEGINNING to END!
Is a 1 1/2 hour session enough? For those looking for the ultimate in lifestyle photography, you can save up to 28% by extending your standard 90 minute session all the way up to 6 hours with one of our senior pictures session packages combining extended sessions with discounted print credits!
