Want an idea of what a senior portrait gallery looks like?

Not everyone knows what to expect when it comes to their senior portrait gallery. So, here is an explanation of what a senior portrait gallery looks like when you book a senior portrait session with me...


An average senior portrait gallery usually includes 50-75 images delivered to you via an online digital gallery which will make it easy for you to download, share, and print your images. Your gallery includes a wide range of expressions, styles, and settings to give my seniors as much variety in their portrait galleries as possible.


How do I provide variety?... Well, I am so glad you asked!





Variety in Outfits and Locations

To ensure you have a diverse and interesting gallery, I always recommend bringing 2-3 different outfits. This allows us to create distinct looks and capture different aspects of your own personal unique style and personality. Additionally, we typically shoot in 2-3 different locations, which might include a mix of urban and natural settings, such as a downtown area, a park, the beach, or a special spot that holds personal significance. These locations need to be close to each other, so we do not waste a lot of your session time traveling to and from locations. If you are not quite sure what location you might like, don't stress!! I have that covered! All of my clients get a 43-page style guide, which gives you suggestions and advice on things like outfits, hair, and makeup. On top of that, it also contains of list of possible photo shoot locations in and around the Gulf Coast. If you are stumped and just need some ideas, then be sure and read through this list! It will help point you in the right direction!




Types of Shots

Your gallery will include a mix of close-up and wide-angle shots. Close-ups focus on your facial expressions and details. These shots will focus more on the details, which is why your hair and makeup are so important. It is also important to make sure your fingernails are neat, clean, and well-shaped. It is not uncommon to have your hands in many of your shots, and you don't want jagged or dirty fingernails in your images. Wide-angle shots incorporate more of the background, adding context and variety to your images. These images include more of your surroundings to help emphasize different aspects of your personality. This blend of different perspectives helps in creating a comprehensive story of your senior year.


Black and White Images

To add an artistic touch, I include a selection of black and white images. These timeless photos emphasize emotion and contrast, providing a classic look that complements the vibrant, colorful shots in your gallery.





Poses and Prompts

Throughout the session, I'll guide you through multiple different poses and prompts. You do not have to worry about how to stand, or what to do with your hands. I will direct you in exactly how you need to pose or move. Whether you're looking for candid, playful shots or more formal, posed images, we'll capture a range of expressions and moments. This variety ensures that your final gallery is diverse and interesting, with photos that you’ll love to share with family and friends.
