The Graduation Photo Experience


Grad is such an important time in a young adults life. A time of reflection, celebration, and excitment about what the future may bring. It means a new beginning, learning the ropes of being an adult, studing for a profession, paying bills, making choices and having new experiences. A graduation photoshoot is the perfect way to close this chapter and open and new one.

Why hire a photographer for grad?


It's a great grad gift and your grad will make memories and get photos that will last a lifetime! Grad photography sessions are an experience where the grad is celebrated, their unique personality and style can be captured, and they get to have a fun day of memories where they get to dress up and be a model for a day.                                                    


What does a grad photo experience look like?


It starts with a phone consultation where I speak with the parents and the grad. This helps me to learn more about what each person wants out of the experience and helps me to learn a little about the Grad and family too.


During the consultations we also discuss locations of interest, what family combinations (or friends) will be in the photos, and any specific details about your photo day. The grad gets to make it their own and we can pick locations and people that are near and dear to the grads heart.          


Once we book a date it is up to the Grad if they wish to have hair and/or makeup done. Hair and makeup is not included in the session. Some grads choose to have their entire photosession done in their formal wear, others want street clothes and some want both. 


During the session we have fun!  We play with props,  lighting and posing. We get to know one another and make a memerable day of it. We chat, be silly, change outfits, and break for snacks and water as needed. It is not rushed! The grad gets to feel uplifted and important and each session is unique to them.

After The Session


All the best photos will be posted on your own online gallery. There, you will get a chance to look at them all and pick your favorites. These can be then made into a beautiful album, wall displays, or printed pictures for family and friends. If you're not sure what you plan to do with your photos there is also digital packages.  

What are clients saying about their grad sessions?


Stacey is a very bubbly, energetic person who had a smile on her face throughout the whole photo shoot. She really did try to do anything to get the best lighting and angles! I was beyond thrilled with how my grad photos turned out and how she knew very unique places to capture all of my memorable moments! You can tell through her personality and work that she is very passionate about photography and making her clinics feel special. - Hannah Kirby
