At Visual Concepts Photography, high school senior pictures are our specialty !
This page is all about answering your questions about the high school senior picture process.
Personal Portrait Consultation
Our style is very different from other photographers. The first and foremost goal is to set up your personal consultation at our Davidsonville studio, conveniently located on Route 424, off Route 50, just a short distance from Annapolis, MD. We create a custom stylized photoshoot with YOU in mind; after all, it is all about YOU! During this consultation, we will review your portrait needs, our portfolio and investment guide and give you a guided tour of our studio where we have a variety of gowns for you to choose from as well as our custom-designed gardens to help your stylized photo session.
Are you a glamour girl? If so, we can do a Vanity Fair stylized glamour photoshoot in our studio with a variety of outfits. We also have an exclusive makeup artist that we work with should you desire a professional makeup session.
Are you a city girl? Let’s look at various venues and styles that work with your urban look.
Are you a country girl? We are in the perfect place to photograph your country look from our custom gardens to our neighbor’s barn.
Your Custom-Designed Senior Photo Session:
Once we have established your style, Linda will map out your custom photo session which will last anywhere from 2-3 hours. You have up to 5 different outfit changes and a variety of locations from our studio to our southern front porch, our swing, our gardens, pond, gate and we will take a short trip to Mt. Airy Farm where we will photograph you in and around the barn. We use natural light as much as possible but will augment with strobes where necessary. Some clients have brought their dog to the session which Linda highly recommends!!!
Should you desire to have your photo session in Annapolis, Baltimore or Washington, we will scout for ideal locations to make your senior pictures the contemporary, magazine-style images we are known for. It’s all about YOU!! Your input will really create your dream images that you will love. AND, I can guarantee that once we wrap up your portrait session, you will say, “that was so much fun!” I recommend going out with friends afterwards to celebrate YOU, your upcoming senior year and your big dreams for college and beyond. You deserve only the best!!
Your Photo Reveal:
Within a week, you will be able to view your senior pictures at our studio via slideshow. It is here where the fun begins. You will fall in love with your images. It is important that both parents attend so that the final decision in selecting your images takes place. It is a fun and exciting experience!! We have a variety of products available. Most of my seniors LOVE the image box that comes with all the 5×7 prints that you have chosen along with a corresponding digital file!! These boxes start at $900 and the cover is custom-designed with your favorite photograph.
Preparing for your Senior Photo Session:
1. Carefully choose your 5 outfits. You want some diversity; casual, smart casual and formal. Make sure all garments are clean, free of wrinkles and fit well. Choose tops and dresses that are form fitting and flattering. Don’t forget accessories such as hats, scarves, sunglasses and shoes, shoes, shoes or cowboy boots!!! Accessories really make the photo!!
2. Personal Grooming. Make sure your hair is cut and styled at least one week prior to your session. I would highly recommend a professional blow-out on the day of your session. Makeup should be clean and minimal. I am all about photographing you just as you are with emphasis on your eyes and lips. It’s important that we capture your age appropriate image so that you will look back on these images on day and be so happy you captured your images by Visual Concepts Photography.
