Photographing teens and seniors is our passion and we have a deep desire to make each person that is photographed feel incredible! Our ultimate goal is to capture not only how you look on the outside, but who you are on the inside! We are known for our attention to detail and the ability to capture each individual so that their personality shines through! We strive to incorporate movement & lots of fun so that your expressions are natural and authentic. The experience will be a highlight of your senior year and an unforgettable memory that will make you smile every time your look back.
One of the #1 things that seniors and their parents stress about when it comes to senior pictures is…..“What should I wear!?” We eliminate that worry by doing a fashion consultation before your scheduled session. Bring everything! We also have a couture jewelry wall filled with accessories that you can borrow to complete your look like earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings.
It’s important for your session to be fun, natural, and relaxed! Location and wardrobe changes take some time, so planning on three full hours give us plenty of time so that you can really enjoy the experience and not feel rushed.
The day of your senior session will start with a professional makeup artist and hair stylist. Professional hair and makeup will make you look and feel your very best! Everyone has their own style, so we work with the very best stylists and makeup artists who are experts at applying makeup so that you feel like you are completely YOU.
All of your final images will be professionally retouched, but your skin will look natural and beautiful.
This happens to be of our favorite moments during the Shelby Senior Experience because we get to show off those beautiful images of YOU! After your images are professionally retouched, we will contact you to set up a time & date for your ordering session at our studio.
We are proud to offer the highest quality works of art that include gift prints (8x10 or smaller), fine art canvas wraps, framed prints, and press printed books. We know that you also value digital files, so we are happy to offer two Collections that include high resolution digital files.
Give us a call at 309.472.1969 or contact me through our website and I’ll reply back with the information you need to set that up. Most of our client’s prefer to book over the phone, but either way is fine with us!
We would be happy to directly email the digital files to your school’s yearbook advisor.
We accept most major credit cards, checks, and cash. There is a minimum order requirement of $550 that is due at the time of your session. You will be able to apply that entire credit to any of our Collections or ALA CARTE items.
The session fee reserves the date and time for your senior session so that the photographer, her assistant, and makeup artist do not take any other appointments. If you need to cancel or reschedule your senior session, the sitting fee cannot be refunded.
We watch the radar very closely. Typically we don’t make a decision about postponing/rescheduling your senior session until the morning of your scheduled appointment because we know that the Mother Nature can change her mind at a moment’s notice. If it’s raining or super windy, more than likely your session will be rescheduled. Your sitting fee is non refundable in case of cancellation with the EXCEPTION of inclement weather.
