The Senior Experience
Your Senior Portrait Session is a one of a kind experience designed just for you. Your session is all about you. This is your time to shine. To express your unique style and interests. Your senior year is an important time in your life. What better way to capture you during your senior year than with a custom Senior Portrait Shoot by Jan Casper Photography.
Your Photo Shoot:
Before your photo shoot there will be a pre-session meeting. During your meeting we will go over all the details of your photo shoot, which locations to choose, what to wear, what props to bring, etc..
All photo shoots are outside. I prefer the beauty of natural light, so all photo shoots are taken in various locations around Hampton Roads. Some popular locations are First Landing Beach and Park, Norfolk Botanical Garden, Downtown Norfolk: (various urban places, alleyways, brick walls, cool doorways, Neon District murals) The photo shoot location is up to the senior, whatever best suits you. Late afternoon light looks the best, so I schedule every photo shoot to start 2 to 3 hours before sunset. The length of your photo shoot depends on how many locations you choose.
I photograph seniors year round, but most photo shoots take place between May and November. Think about your favorite time of year to decide what month will be best for your senior portrait shoot. If you love spring/summer and warmer weather then May to August would be best. If you love fall and the changing colors and cooler temperatures then September to November would be best. Senior sessions typically book 1 to 3 weeks in advance. Make sure to book your shoot far enough ahead so you can get the date that you desire.
All senior sessions include the following:
A 2 to 3 hour photo shoot with professional makeup, 3 to 4 outfit changes and 2 to 3 locations.
Cities included are Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Portsmouth. There is a $50.00 travel fee to have your shoot in any of the other cities in the Hampton Roads area.
There is a $275.00 Session Fee which covers my time and talent photographing you, editing your images and professional makeup. Session Fees do not include prints or products. Session Fees are due at the time of booking.
7 to 10 days after your senior shoot will be your Viewing and Ordering Session where you will view your images and place your product order. Print Packages start at $500.00.
