One of the best parts of my job as a High School Senior Portrait Photographer is not only revealing the portraits the very first time to the senior and her family, but it’s delivering the final senior product order. Without fail, seniors and their families are blown away by how beautiful the portraits look and feel when they are professionally printed. They are true pieces of art and will be treasured by families for decades.
In today’s blog, I would love to share with you Katie’s senior product order from her senior portrait session late spring at Manassas Battlefield in Virginia. Katie was a class of 2016 graduate of Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax, VA and chose to have a Senior Signature Session to celebrate this wonderful season in life. Like most families, she chose the wildly popular Keepsake Image Box as well as two matted and framed Wall Art pieces that now hang proudly in her home.
First, we have Katie’s Keepsake Image Box. The Keepsake Image Box has been shared quite a bit here and here as THIS product is without fail the most popular senior product offered! I like to term it as the “modern day album.” Your favorite portraits are printed on fine art paper and mounted for extra durability and are presented in a beautiful customed-desigend keepsake box. Your portraits can be safely stored inside and flipped through whenever your heart desires or each art print can be taken out and displayed in a frame or on an easel. These smaller art prints also make great gifts for grandparents and mom and dad can take their favorite portrait to the office. The Keepsake Image Box is the most versatile of all the HCP boutique product line.
Second, we have Katie’s Wall Art pieces. Katie’s family chose their two absolute favorite senior portraits to be printed larger. Each portrait has a linen finish to it adding a touch of exquisite texture. The portrait is then matted and protected by an elegant golden rustic frame. These two art pieces hang side by side in the upstairs foyer of Katie’s home and are undoubtedly admired by all in the family.
Senior portraits with HCP are more than just snapping a few pictures to share on social media. Although that is important and all of my senior clients choose a Digital Collection to do just that, nearly all of my high school seniors and their families come to me wanting more, wanting something tangible, wanting something they can display proudly in their home, and will be admired 20, 30, 60 years down the road! If you would like to take a peek inside Varsity Year and see the rest of the HCP boutique product line, let me know here!
