Honestly, it really depends on where you want to have your senior portrait session done. I have been doing this for 8 years and have been studying lighting in just about all areas of San Diego.
As far as when to get them done by, definitely no later than the end of April, possibly the beginning of May. I have to have time to edit them and get them to you so you can order senior announcements, which, depending on who you order them from, can take up to 2 weeks.
There is no "ONE" right answer for this. I will work with you and offer suggestions, and what you like, and we will go from there. Be assured we will find the best location for you. One of my seniors has loved animals since she was in Kindergarten, and so we were able to find a horse ranch location for her to have them done.
I will always work with my clients to suggest outfits, if they are unsure. It really depends on the location of your photoshoot.
I accept cash, check, Venmo or Paypal.
I am constantly checking out the weather, and we can reschedule your session. I have had rain or cloudy weather come up in the past so many times. It's never that much of a problem.
You will receive your online gallery with the link to download your pictures approximately 2 weeks after your portrait session.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
