Now's the time to book your Senior package! The class of 2011 is gearing up for the busiest year your child has had so far. It can also be one of the most expensive times, between school dances, graduation gowns, open houses, and pictures.
If you are looking to save some money on the costs of your senior pictures, you've come to the right place. I don't charge an arm and a leg, and I don't compromise quality.
All of my photos are taken outside, in an outdoors, natural light setting. Locations range from urban to rural.
Senior portrait sessions start at just $70 for 90 minutes of photography time in the Charlotte/Grand Ledge/Lansing area. Locations in the Battle Creek will include a $10 travel fee, so the base price is $80. Grand Rapids area will include a $20 travel fee, so the base price is $90.
Your session will include:
- Multiple outdoor locations, though a fee of $5 will be added on to distances more than 20 miles apart from one another.
- Wardrobe changes, if the location has a public bathroom.
- Props of your choosing- school uniforms, band instruments, some pets (friendly, non-exotic pets only, please), car, etc.
- 25 photos of your choosing. Additional photos are $1 each.
- 3 image edits, including selective color, air brushing, photo collages, and more. Black & White or Sepia are not considered edits, and are free of charge. Additional edits can be done for $2 per photos.
- 1 8x10 or 2 5x7 prints or 1 sheet of 8 rounded corner, die cut wallets of the photo of your choice.
- 1 Low Resolution CD with your photo choices on it, which allows you to have prints 4x6" made up in any quantity, with a the studio logo on them. A high resolution CD is available for $20.
3 Photos with your Name, School, & Graduation Year added to the corner for Wallets.
- Friend or Significant Other- many Seniors wish to remember their Senior Year with a portrait taken with a friend or significant other. I charge $5 for each additional person included in the session's photos, but the focus of the session will be the senior. If you and a friend or significant other are interested in both booking a session, we can do them on the same day at the same locations for a discount to both booking parties. Email for specifics.
- 2 Booking Dates- 1 main date, and 1 back up date for weather.
- Referral Freebie! Refer your fellow Seniors, and your family will receive a FREE mini session with Expressions by Heather.
