The Senior Portrait Experience | MA & CT Senior Portrait Photographer

April 25, 2018

It’s your Junior year of High School and this fall you will be entering your last year. Senior Year. Yikes!! How did that creep up so fast?! It’s exciting and even a little scary all rolled into one! Maybe you’ve already decided what your plans are after graduation – whether it be college or some other exciting adventure – or maybe you’re still deciding what your next steps are. Either way, this is your opportunity to celebrate this monumental moment in your life. The perfect time to capture who you are and what you love. It’s time to start thinking about your senior portraits!

A Senior Portrait Session

Senior year is fun & exciting! And that is exactly how I want your portrait session with me to be as well! Cell phone shots and selfies are great and all, but you only have a few times in your life when you are able to have beautiful and captivating professional images that show off the real you. Images that make you feel happy, confident, and ready for what the future has in store!

I’ve created the Senior Portrait Experience Guide to help walk you (and your parents) through the senior portrait process with Alison Marie Photography. This guide provides details on what to expect from your session, how to prepare, useful tips on what to wear, how to choose the perfect location, about your investment & more! View our gallery of past Senior sessions HERE.

Why choose Alison Marie Photography?

With so many senior portrait photographers in Western, MA and Northern, CT, I know it can be hard to pick one. So why choose Alison Marie Photography? The experience I provide will be unique, fun, easy and will produce the amazing images you’re looking for. I completely understand that not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, it’s my job to change that! I am very easy-going and casual and totalllllllly not going make you pose awkwardly or do anything you don’t feel comfortable doing. All you have to do is relax & be yourself! I will help you every step of the way!

Before -We will set up a pre-session consultation to discuss the details of your session, such as location, outfits, items/props you may be bringing, etc. This consultation is typically done in person at my studio in Southwick, but it can also be done over the phone.

During – On the day of your shoot, we’ll walk around to different parts of the location to get a variety of images. You don’t need to be worried about what to do, how to smile, or how to stand – I’ll be there to help & instruct you throughout your entire session.

After – Within 30 days of your shoot, we’ll set up a Reveal Appointment for you and your parents to come view your images – my favorite part! This is something to get excited about! You can select your favorite images and I’ll guide you through the ordering process. There will be lots of time to see sample products & ask questions!

If you’re interested in having your hair and make-up professionally done, we offer those services as well!
