As an RGP Senior client, I aim to make the process fun, make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and make sharing your images with friends and family easy and affordable. You just bring your favorite outfits, and I’ll do the rest!
At a senior session with me, graduates can expect a fun and energetic atmosphere filled with plenty of laughs. Besides understanding the technical aspects of photography, I have spent years learning how to instruct and pose clients to create photos that are flattering, fun, and varied. I will tell you exactly what to do and how to pose, so you can just focus on having fun! I love getting to know my seniors on a personal level throughout our time together so I can create pictures I know you will be sharing on Instagram all year long (and even beyond)!
RGP senior pictures clients receive their final images as high-resolution digital files through an online gallery. From this gallery, you can easily download and share your images or order as many or as few prints as you would like! There are no print minimums or hidden fees - just order exactly what you need.
What locations do you offer for senior pictures?
I offer a specific list of senior photo location options around the Twin Cities metro from which my senior clients choose for their sessions. As a seasoned Minnesota senior photographer, I have spent years shooting around he Minneapolis metro and have narrowed down the best locations that offer great variety in backdrops and are convenient for outfit changes. These are tried-and-true locations that I know deliver amazing results, so you don't have to spend time doing your own location scouting!
How do I get my images?
I take a modern approach to senior photos where I deliver high-resolution digital images to you through an online gallery. There is no in-person sales meeting, no push to purchase additional products, just simple email delivery with print and download options to use your images how you want! I will email you your final gallery about 2-3 weeks after our session.
Do I have to purchase a print package or are there other hidden fees?
No! In today's digital world with social media, I know we don't print images like we used to. Therefore, I offer two senior packages with simple prices which cover your session time, editing, and delivery of your files in a digital online gallery. You have the option to order prints and products through that gallery for affordable prices, but there is no obligation. You can print or order exactly what you want, or simply download the digital files to share with family & friends on social media!
Can I reschedule my session if the weather isn't nice?
Yes! I will reschedule my senior photo sessions if there is rain or storms in the forecast. I always reach out a few days ahead of time as we can see an accurate forecast and we can make a decision. Keep in mind that overcast days can actually be great for photos, so I only reschedule if we are expecting rain or very strong winds. If you need to reschedule your session for non-weather related reasons, I just require a 24-hour notice.
Do you submit my photo to the yearbook for me?
No. Every school has different requirements and processes for yearbook submission, so I do not offer submitting for you. However, I offer enhanced photo retouching on a handful of images in each of my packages, so I am happy to retouch your yearbook image before you submit. Additionally, I make it easy to download the high-resolution digital file from your gallery so you can directly upload it to your school when you're ready to submit.
Can I use my photos for graduation invites or slideshows?
Absolutely! I provide a print release in my contracts, allowing you to use your senior pictures for any personal use, such as prints to frame in your home or use in school slideshows, yearbooks, graduation announcements, grad party invitations, etc. Because I maintain the copyright to the images, you will need to contact me if you plan to publish your senior photo in any other professional publication, like a magazine or billboard, but these are very rare instances.
Can I bring props for my senior pictures?
Yes! I love working with props to make my seniors' photos more unique and personalized. You can bring equipment from a sport you play, an instrument, a hat or fun accessory, a flag from your college you'll be attending, or even your pet! I'm down for anything.
Who can I bring with me to my senior session?
I recommend coming to your senior session with one parent/guest or alone. Others are welcome, but it can become cumbersome to walk to all the various locations with a full posse in tow. It can also be intimidating to be in front of the camera with an audience watching at the same time. I trust your judgement though, so bring whoever will be the most helpful and your biggest cheerleader.
