How it Works

1. Consultation

Call for a phone consultation or to set up an in-studio consultation. We would love to answer your questions and get to know you and what your vision is for your senior session.

2. Book a Session

Let’s book your session at the location or
locations of your choice. Once you have booked you can download our Style Guide to help you prepare for your session. Please note that the session fee does not include products.

3. The Experience and planning

Annie's senior sessions are like a magazine style photo shoot with multiple outfits. Here is your chance to incorporate who you are, your own personal style at this time in your life. Yes, bring those props – surfboard, football, point shoes, clothing that shows your heritage, dirt bikes, hats, stylish clothing/shoes, prom dress, etc. Show us who you are and what is important to you. BRING IT!
Also note this can be a once in a lifetime experience so girls, you might want to consider having your hair and makeup done. We can also help with that.

4. Guided Photoshoot

Annie will guide you through poses, so not to worry, it is our goal to make you look your best in the outfits you brought. We love closeups and images that show the location(s) you choose. Annie also prides herself in capturing real expressions. So relax and let’s have some FUN!

5. Portrait Premier

After your amazing portraits have been processed, we will have you come to the studio for your portrait premier .All decision-makers must be present at this time, for this is the one time you will view your images and make your portrait purchase.

6. Portraits and Products

We truly believe you will love your portraits and the products you purchased for a life time and hope you had as much fun as we did capturing your amazing senior portraits.

Getting your hair and makeup done for your senior portrait session can really make a big difference in your portraits. If you wish to do your own hair and makeup please do not use makeup with shimmer or sparkles, these makeups can cause shine when using a flash. Matt makeup is much better for photography. Please call the studio and I can recommend a hair and makeup person.

Yes the studio offers digital image collections and Ala Cart digital image packs.

Once you book your session, I will send your the link to check to a Guys or Girls Style Guide to help you to choose what to wear.

Yes every image will be artfully edited and retouched. Not to worry you have a say if you want only a small amount of retouching. My goal is to remove blemishes not pores.
