The

Senior

Experience

M Y  P H I L O S O P H Y | I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. Your senior year is very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. There are many applications to universities and colleges to deal with. School, friends, and maybe even a part time job. On top of it, now you need to have your senior pictures taken. My goal as a senior photographer is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When my clients feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, it results in genuine, joyful images! When I think back to my senior days, I remember amazing memories.... but most of the moments I remember really well are the instances that were captured in my pictures. They are priceless to me. I didn't have my senior pictures professionally done and I regret it still to this day. I can never go back to that time when I was full of hope and big dreams for my life. Now I don't have any good pictures I can frame and put up on my wall as a memory. I'm sure you're excited and happy and can't wait to graduate. The images we'll create will be a huge part of the experience..... shouldn’t it be fun, enjoyable and natural? I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they'll never forget.

T H E  P R O C E S S | One way I ensure that you enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship. I try my best to make sure we are the PERFECT fit before officially booking. A client should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be EXCITED about the whole process with them! I achieve this by sending out an online questionnaire, asking about your hobbies and likes. This helps me to get to know you better and then I'm able to give a lot of feedback as to what locations, outfits, days and times would work best to make sure you look your absolute best amazing self! During the session I take A LOT of pictures! Sometimes thousands! I do this to ensure I get all of the possible angles to guarantee you will look your absolute best! After the session is where the real work for me begins, I narrow down all the best poses, we meet up and you get to chose your favorite ones. Once that's done, I get to work on the chosen poses and begin adding my artistic touches. This is a very tedious and time consuming process.  Many images take longer than two hours each to complete.  But, the results are magical! See the before and after below.

After all artistic editing is done, I send the images to you via an online gallery for your final approval. This is when you can tell me if you would like some changes done! I always work with my clients to make sure that they absolutely LOVE their pictures!

Why Invest?

Senior year of High School marks so many milestones! This is the first year when you become a legal adult. This may very well be the last year that you will have the same friends. Most likely this could be the last year that you live with your parents. Taking senior pictures is a great way to commemorate everything that you've experienced and to celebrate your future! Shouldn't you have the best photographer to capture all of it? I put my heart and soul into every single one of my images to make sure that you look your absolute best amazing self!

Digital Files
A few days after your photo session you will receive an online gallery with unedited images to choose poses from.  Once you choose your favorites I will begin working my magic on them.
All edits include smoothing of the skin, fixing fly aways, whitening teeth, brightening up eyes, removing objects that are distracting from the background.

You can request extra edits, such as thinning out body parts, adding volume to hair, fixing teeth and more.My goal is to ensure you are 100% satisfied with the final results!
Weather
In case of bad weather and or natural disaster we will reschedule the session. I constantly check the weather forecast and will communicate with you well in advance with any concerns and changes of plans that may need to take place.
Locations
I'm often asked on what is a good location for photo sessions. I've decided to write a whole blog post with all my favorite locations. Here is a link: https://www.arinasizemorephotography.com/single-post/best-locations-for-a-photo-shoot-around-seattle-area 
I'm also open to new locations as well!
