Everyone has a phone these days with cameras. That makes everyone a photographer, right?!?! WRONG!!! Just because you can take a picture does not mean you should entrust anyone with a camera, even if it’s a nice, expensive one, to capture the milestones in your life.
As a professional photographer I have years of experience with capturing these moments in ways that are special and memorable. A picture that’s worth a thousand words has subtle nuances. To capture them, it’s essential to have a trained eye and perfect timing. Having hundreds of photoshoots under your belt doesn’t hurt either!
Plus, there’s much more that goes into making your senior photography sessions worthwhile.
Here are five reasons to book a pro for your senior photos!
1. I have the camera and technical skills to capture your best you!
To consistently take beautiful portraits, you need more than fancy gear and lighting equipment. You need to know how and when to work that fancy gear depending on the lighting circumstance you’re in. It’s much more than pointing and shooting. Even on the most perfect days at the perfect locations, lighting can be tricky and examples like that are when technical skills come in.
2. I have an exclusive partnership with Blush Bridal Boutique in Haymarket, VA.
Did you know that you can select a Blush Bridal Boutique prom dress to wear for your senior photography session? This is a complementary ad on to any high school senior who choses HCP to photograph their senior pictures. The team of stylists at Blush Bridal Boutique will help you find the dress you’re looking for so you are feeling extra beautiful for your portraits!
3. I can pair you with professional hair and makeup artists who will bring out your best features.
You may know plenty of tips and tricks for applying your everyday makeup and doing your hair, but hiring pros is a critical part of your senior portraits! Professional hair and make up artists are trained to enhance your beautiful features, making you camera ready.
4. I take the hassle out of the process.
As a student, you’re busy with school, sports, college visits, etc., and if you’re a parent of a student, you’re equally as busy. I take the hassle out of process to make your senior photography session enjoyable and stress free. I walk you through every step of the process: from tailoring a session that fits your personality, locations, outfits, and to the final selection process which leaves you with gorgeous Wall Art and Keepsake Image Boxes.
5. I turn your pictures into artwork.
Pictures are meant to be printed. They are meant to be hung on the wall in a gallery or safely stored in Signature Album. Your artwork is meant to last for decades: can you imagine the look on your children’s (or even grandchildren’s) faces one day as they admire you are as you are right now?
