Why Hire a Professional Photographer...

Graduating High School is a huge accomplishment worth celebrating! One of the best ways to remember your high school experience, and to celebrate your promotion into adulthood is through a senior portrait session. A Senior session with Mead Photography isn’t just about taking pictures. Its about developing a relationship together, getting to know who you are and bringing that out in the form of your unique photographs.

Even experience amateurs struggle with the more nuanced parts of portrait photography. Mastery of lighting, hiding undesirable features, and creating radiant skin tones are among the most difficult and most important parts of producing a perfect portrait. When you hire an experience professional, they will put their years of experience to work to create images of you that flatter and look fantastic when printed in large format. Photographs meant to be printed, displayed, touched, and shared. We’ve designed our program and packages to ensure that you will end up with stunningly beautiful, last-a-lifetime physical pieces that become family treasures.

Our goal is to be there every step of the way as we capture your story! From the initial consultation to handing over the final printed pieces from your session, we will assist you through an experience you will treasure for years to come.

What To Expect...

Let Us Capture Who You Are!

BEFORE: As soon as you are interested in booking a session, shoot me an email or give me a call. We will discuss all the specifics of what you are looking for with your photo session. This will give me the opportunity to learn more about you and what you enjoy doing most. Since the goal is to capture the real YOU, each session is unique and customized for seniors. Some things we will solidify are what type of photos you’d like, what location you are interested in, when is the best time for your photos, and which pricing package you would like. I’ll compile all this information in a convenient email and contract and send it your way.

DURING: Photo sessions can range from one to three hours. We will meet at the selected location at the scheduled time, go over any special photo requests or needs you have, and then get shooting! We will do lots of different poses, backgrounds, and walk around our location to get new perspectives. I’m happy to accommodate any fun posing ideas you have, or any props you’d like to incorporate. At the end of the session, I’ll answer any last questions and then were all finished!

AFTER: As soon as your session is over, I transfer your photos onto my computer with double backup, and begin editing. Two weeks after your session, we’ll meet again at the studio for a personalized ordering appointment! Well help you pick out your favorites and go over different creative options.
