The BBS Senior Experience


Hey there soon-to-be Seniors! Next year is full of excitement as you prepare to transition into “the real world”. From pep rallies & prom to college campus visits & big decisions. As one chapter closes & another opens I want to memorialize your unique style, hobbies & passions through your senior portrait session. My number one priority is to capture you in beautiful, natural photos that reflect your happiness during an exciting season of your life & give you memories to last a lifetime.

I'm so happy that you're considering me to capture this moment in your life with professional photography so that you can hold onto these memories forever. I want to make you feel beautiful, make the process fun and sharing your images EASY! I offer professional printing through my website for convenience but I also give you a print release to print on your own if you choose. I pride myself and my business on the fact that I don't have hidden fees, required minimum purchases or secrets.

Each package includes a custom, personalized Backwoods Belle Studios senior experience which includes 2 hours of shooting at 2-3 select locations, 2-4 outfit changes, an online gallery, and hard copy proof book. You can easily download, share and print all of your fully edited, high-resolution and web resolution digital images. Since they're digital, they won't expire so you will always have them to revisit and share in the future. Plus, you can post a new #seniorsunday on Insta each and every week. 

IMAGES THAT REFLECT YOU

Having your portrait taken can feel awkward at first, that's why I take time to get to know you beforehand. The real, natural, beautiful you. I also don't do heavy hand-editing, so you will still look like yourself! 

I don’t use a “formula” for my sessions. I want every single one to be unique! I work hard to showcase who YOU are. 

CONFIDENT AND RADIANT

I promise to make you feel comfortable, confident and and radiant in front of the camera. I will pose and guide you for our entire shoot - no modeling experience required!

The entire experience will be fun and leave you with new, exciting memories from your senior year. 


1. GET PRE-PORTRAIT HELP

When you book a session with me, I know you probably have questions or want to get a few ideas. You’ve never done this before! I enjoy helping my clients choose the perfect outfit, props, and locations, and I chat with you prior to your session to make sure everyone is on the same page!


2. TWO WORDS: STYLE GUIDE

Everyone feels like a million bucks when they put on a pretty new outfit, but I honestly believe that knowing how to pamper yourself and look your best in your pictures is what sets you apart. I provide each of my seniors with a style guide so that they can look and feel beautiful!

3. LOTS OF LAUGHTER

Some photographers take senior portraits very seriously. I do believe they’re super important and an heirloom everyone should have, they should also be fun! When you choose me, be prepared to laugh a ton, and just know that I’m game for anything to get the shot you want!

4. PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS

I know how eager you are to get your photos back, and I work hard to deliver them as soon as possible. However, I don’t cut corners when it comes to editing. You’ll always look like you, but I will touch up minor blemishes and anything else that might be distracting.

What does it mean to be a #BBSsenior?

Fun Group Shoots

Throughout the year I will be planning 2-3 group shoots with all of my senior spokesmodels! You will have the opportunity to put in your input and ideas as well for some group shoot ideas!

Images to share

Part of your responsibility as a senior representative is to refer friends and family by sharing your digital images on social media frequently, as well as participating in spokesmodel-related events.

Referral Bonuses

You heard that right! For every senior to be that books with me from your referral, you will receive print credit toward your own senior pictures.

Personally Styled Individual Session

My favorite part! We will work together to build your dream individual senior session and create the perfect session of pictures you will be able to look at and smile at for years to come!

FAQ

WHERE WILL WE SHOOT THE PHOTOS?

I’m pretty flexible! I have a few go-to places I love around Crawford County with lots of great scenery and great light but if you have a specific location in mind that's special to you, that's great too! Let me know if you want me to choose the location or if you want to pick one yourself. I'm always up for the challenge of a non-traditional session where I can be creative! and create unique to you photos!

CAN I BRING PROPS OR EXTRA OUTFITS?

Of course! Please bring props! A few examples of things I've incorporated into seniors photos are musical instruments, sports medals, big balloons, glitter, or their future college’s colors. These are the things that help make your photos unique and a true representation of who you are right now. We can also usually fit in an outfit change or two depending on the complexity of the outfit.

DO YOU EDIT OR TOUCH UP THE PHOTOS?

I adjust things like colors and lighting in post processing, and I will edit out any blemishes or injuries that are obvious. I use light brushes to accentuate, but not change your features. I like to keep things as natural possible to keep them authentic to you.

HOW WILL MY SCHOOL GET A COPY FOR THE YEARBOOK?

If you provide me the contact information for your school’s yearbook department, I can make sure your photo of choice gets delivered in time!

HOW FAR AHEAD DO I NEED TO HAVE MY SENIOR PORTRAITS TAKEN?

Senior portraits can start as early as the spring before your senior year and can be taken up until the end of the calendar year (around the holidays). Choose the time of year that speaks to you. For example, some may love the blooming flowers of spring, some are drawn to the warmth of summer, some prefer the beautiful colors of fall and some like to wait until there’s snow on the ground. As long as you book your session at least a month or two before your school’s yearbook deadline, you'll be just fine!
