So glad you're interested in having me take your cap and gown photos! I've been taking grad photos since long before I graduated college myself, and have had such a joy getting to know people and celebrate their successes alongside them, which is one of the main reasons I love taking them each semester.
My sessions are usually a nice (and oftentimes nostalgic) walk around campus, visiting several landmarks to take photos. I'm a believer that graduation photos should be easy and fun - all while capturing great photos - and I've structured my approach to these sessions to be just that.
If you're interested in booking a session or have any questions let me know! I do also offer grad + family sessions if the whole family wants to get involved to celebrate together!
"HOW MUCH TIME WILL WE HAVE?"
For traditional grad sessions, I try to aim between 60 and 90 minutes, though that's not a strict line. It's enough time for us to visit many of the best spots around campus without taking so long we all get tired.
"DO I HAVE TO WEAR MY CAP AND GOWN THE WHOLE TIME?
Not at all! Usually people want some photos in their cap and gown, and some photos in other clothes! As well as some people like to bring something like an instrument or other prop to diversify the photos from our session and capture exactly what your collegiate experience was!
"CAN I BRING FRIENDS?"
Of course! Some of my favorite sessions with the best photos have been groups of friends or roommates who wanted to take photos together. We can mix solo photos as well as photos as a group! (and it ends up being cheaper for each of you)
"CAN I PRINT THESE PHOTOS?"
I have a relationship with a print shop I trust to ensure the highest quality with the photos, and offers tons of options to you. I deliver photos online where you can download them and decide exactly what photos you want printed and how you want them to be in your home.
"DO YOU WATERMARK YOUR PHOTOS?"
Not at all. You pay me for the session which includes digital copies, and I don't want to cover them with my own name. I do ask that if and when you post on social media, you do tag me in the post though so people can find me easily!
"DO YOU CHARGE A SECURITY DEPOSIT?"
For all sessions, I do ask for a $100 security deposit at the time of booking. That ensures that both of us have the time locked into our calendar and we're not going to bail. This is refundable if you cancel up to 2 weeks before the session. The rest of the fees associated are due at the time of the session.
