Hi everyone! My name is Teri and I am the owner of Teri Lynn H Photography. This week on my Instagram account, I went into some details about our High School Senior’s Pre-Session Consultations. I feel these are important for all my clients as we can plan your whole session and watch it come to life before our eyes! Plus, the best part is you can meet me in person before our session.
A couple days before our consultation, I send out a questionnaire for my seniors to go through and answer. Some of the questions are general information, but I always add in some fun questions to get to know them a little more. We plan to meet at a coffee shop that is located between the two of us. Before I pull out any information, I always ask my Senior client, “Are you ready to graduate?” 9 times out of 10 the answer is yes, because they are ready to start their next chapter in life. This is a conversation starter because I dive into getting to know them even more. My last question I like to ask is “What they are wanting from their session?” or “How they envision their session?”
This question leads me into suggesting locations that they would love, that match what they just described to me. In the Las Vegas valley there are so many places that capture the beauty of natural and landscape feel most are looking for. If you want something a little different for the city and urban feel, the Art District is the place to go.
After deciding on the perfect location, it is time for outfit choices. Our Seniors can bring 3-5 outfits for their session. I offer them a few ideas to get them thinking about what they want to wear for their session. Wear your everyday casual, this could be a tank top and shorts (living in Las Vegas this is a casual for most because of the heat). Dress up your casual everyday wear with a dress or romper. Add in your sports you play or any clubs that you may be part of. One of the last things I offer as an idea is doing something fun. Take your prom dress and add a favorite pair of sneakers, or your cleats. The sky is the limit when it comes to your outfits. If you still aren’t sure what to wear, try everything on!
Our last piece to our consultation is hair and makeup. This is a fun option for our Senior Girls because it takes the stress out of doing it yourself. Our professional hair and makeup artist Ella D Beauty is phenomenal at what she does. Before she starts anything, she talks with you about everything, from how you wear your hair and makeup to what you would like for your images.
