Senior Year. Your Time To Shine.
By the time you graduate, you think of yourself as an adult - ready to embark on your journey, exploring your purpose and passion in life. I hope you've embraced high school and all that you've learned, made friends along the way and maybe found a sense purpose within the art room, band room or with your friends at work.
My favorite thing about photographing high school seniors is the knowing. Knowing they have adulthood, adventure and freedom right in front of them. Knowing that some of their most cherished memories and toughest challenges are about to happen. Knowing they have the power to make life-changing decisions and time to chase their dreams.
Here's something you probably don’t know about me: I have 8 siblings. The youngest is still in high school; my oldest step-daughter is older than my youngest brother (they go to school together). I get to be the cool older sister at the same time as a lame mom! I know how to be a friend to a teen and embarrass the shit out of them at the same time; a bad influence and a Negative Nancy.
That's right. Be jealous.
I am a laid-back, oldies-dancing, pizza lovin' mom (and evil stepmom). I don't own black shoes or have a favorite color....and I survived high school with a name like Bushey.
With a more than decade of professional experience and relaxed personality, you'll see why people love my effortless and comfortable way of making you look your best without over-posing.
Senior Portrait Packages
When should I book my senior portraits?
Senior Portraits are usually made the summer (July-Sept) before your senior year. You can book your session at any time to save the date and time.
What are digital files?
High Resolution digital files come with a print release so that you can reproduce your images at your favorite professional lab, create an album, graduation party invitations or even giant cardboard cut out. You can also upload to your favorite social media site and share with your friends. Don't forget to tag me!
Where do you shoot?
Everywhere and anywhere. Have a favorite coffee shop? Prefer an urban vibe? Spend most of your time with your horse? We can work together to create your vision of your portraits. Mini Session are scheduled within a 15 minute radius of Woodstock, CT. Extended and Basic Sessions can be located up to 45 minute radius of Woodstock, CT for no extra travel fees. I am available for travel! Send me a message and I can give you a quote.
What is an add-on session?
A lot of life happens your Senior Year - I love creating images to celebrate. Prom portraits are created with you dressed to impress, graduation will be with you in your graduation gear (great to send to newspapers with your College announcement or if you've won some awards) and family portraits are there to capture those moments before you've left the nest - often the last family portrait before your wedding (sometime in the next decade or so...)!
Is there a deposit and contract?
Yes! A parent or guardian is required to sign a contract and must be submitted with your retainer fee to schedule your date.
