why do you call these Experiences instead of just calling them Sessions?
Because this isn't your traditional senior portrait session. This is a unique, fun, amazing, mind-blowingly awesome Custom Senior Experience. This is all about YOU. This is the new senior experience.
tell me about the whole experience...
If you're looking for a carbon copy studio session, I'm definitely not the right photographer for you. My senior portrait sessions are nothing like sessions used to be (way back when I had my senior pictures taken). My time with clients is laid back and fun. My style is relaxed, and I want you to feel the same. I have a variety of locations to choose from, and I shoot in all natural light.
Before you even step in front of the camera, we have the details planned. We start with an in-person pre-consultation at least a week BEFORE your session (click for more info) . We'll plan everything from your hair and makeup appointment to your location.
On the day of your shoot, you'll start in true celebrity fashion with your hair and makeup appointment. Go all out, or keep it more natural. They are there to enhance your features and assure you are camera-ready.
A couple of weeks later, we will meet again for your Image Reveal, where your parents and you will see all of your images, pick your favorites, and answer any questions about products. Next thing you know, you'll be showing off your one-of-a-kind images to the world!
why are senior portraits so important?
There are two times in most people's lives when they spend a great deal of time in front of a camera...senior portraits and wedding days. Yet, this is probably the only time in your life you will have portraits that are just about you - what is important to you, and who this person is that will mold the future you. Sure, you've had school photographs marking each year, beginning with Kindergarten. It's amazing to see the transition from year-to-year. But, this is so much more. This is a glimpse at who you will become, and a celebration of who you are as you take that first huge step from childhood toward adulthood.
From my heart, I want to tell you that this is my passion. Creating these memories for you is something I truly love. Thank you for taking the time to consider Heather Pearson Photography. I'm happy to answer any additional questions you may have. Please use the contact link on this site, or call me at 618.409.8176.
