Frequently Asked Questions | Milwaukee Senior Photographer

Senior Pictures at Fonferek's Glen in Green Bay, WI

Q: What should I wear?

A: Clothing is a great way to show your sense of style! You’ll look best in clothing WITHOUT logos or neon colors. A great idea is to plan a variety of outfits: one dressy, one casual, one fun or sport/hobby related. Feel free to bring props that work well with your outfits as well! I have photographed seniors with their sports equipment, instruments, or other fun props!

Q: How many outfits can I wear?

A: I never limit the number of outfits you can have for your session, but please note that time spent changing is time we aren’t shooting! Typically, my clients plan one outfit for every thirty minutes of their session.

Q: Can I have my session at multiple locations?

A: Yes! You absolutely can have your session at multiple locations. Many of my clients love selecting multiple locations to add variety to their galleries. Popular options nature parks, urban downtown areas sports fields/courts.  Please note the travel time between your location. Your session time starts at our first location, and any travel between locations less time you will have for photos.

Q: Should I get a hair and makeup artist?

A: Ladies! I highly recommend a hair and makeup artist. They can help you look your very best natural self. I have a few that I work closely with, and am happy to set this up for you! Just let me know 🙂
If you opt to not have a hair and makeup artist, I highly recommend wearing a matte foundation and achieving your natural and normal look! Don’t forget to hair spray the part of your hair. This sounds silly, but does wonders for taming those fly-aways!

Q: Will you submit the yearbook photo for me?

A: Yes! Just let me know which portrait you would like for your yearbook, and I will do all the submitting for you!

Q: What kind of equipment do you use?

A: This might start getting a bit technical, but I personally use a Nikon D750 and D850 with a variety of lenses and off-camera lighting. 

Q: Do you offer any albums, prints, canvases, etc?

A: Totally! But I want you feeling 1,000% comfortable and excited about the quality of your photographs before placing orders on those. That way, you only order exactly what you want, when you want, and when you know with confidence that they are going to look amazing on your walls and in your fine art heirloom albums. Most of this is done and ordered right through your online gallery! 

Q: Do you offer payment plans?

A: Yes, I do! Traditional an initial payment of $150 is due at the time of booking (within a week) and the final payment at your session. But, if you wanted to do the payment plan, I can stretch it into equal 1/3’s or 1/4’s if that works best for you. Just let me know what you prefer, and I will make it happen. It’s that easy.

Q: How do I book you for my senior portraits?

A: Love that question the most! To book me for your senior pictures, simply let me know what you want to be included in your custom collection:
– Name of your senior package
– Additional Services (optional)
– Additional Prints or Products (optional)
– What payment plan option works best for you
