Q. How long is a senior session?
A. We take a limited number of sessions each year in order to provide our clients with the most personal experience possible—which means we’ll never rush through your session in order to get to another. Plan on a 1.5-2 hour photo shoot (outfit and location changes included).
Q. Where will my photo shoot take place?
A. Wherever you want it to take place … within the DFW area (sadly, we can’t exactly fly to Hawaii and back in two hours). During our pre-session consultation, we’ll discuss different concepts and locations so there’s no wasted time (or mileage) on the day of your shoot.
Q. I have to round up something for my child to wear, book a stylist, design a graduation announcement … and don’t even get me started on the graduation party I haven’t started planning. Will I be able to get all of this together in time?
A. The life of a senior (and a senior’s mom) is busy, isn’t it? With two daughters of my own, I can vouch for the fact that we moms need all the help we can get at times. That’s why we provide a variety of complimentary service offerings to help you book and manage your Love, Me photo shoot with ease. For an additional fee, we can also offer you an over-the-top, down-to-the-last-detail experience that’s 100% stress free. Services include, but are not limited to: Coordinating an appointment with a hair and makeup stylist; Hiring a clothing stylist to select the best colors and outfits from your child’s existing closet (or do a little personal shopping on your behalf); Creating custom graduation announcements (we’ll even address and lick the envelopes for you); Designing custom party favors for the graduation party you’re hosting; Printing one-of-a-kind party invitations (and matching thank-you notes); Producing top-notch yearbook ads. Have additional needs? We’re open to special requests. 817.905.3375
Q. Do you have minimum order requirements?
A. Love, Me Photography provides a luxury senior portrait experience that’s completely custom-tailored to each individual client, and we do require a $500 minimum order in addition to your $225 session fee. Orders are due at the time of your order and design session, which generally takes place 2-3 weeks after our photo shoot. For orders that exceed the $500 minimum, we are more than happy to schedule a payment plan.
Q. Will I receive digital copies of my photos?
A. Everyone who books a session with Love, Me Photography and places the minimum print order, will receive a complimentary selection of logo-marked digital images that are ideal for sharing on social media or emailing to friends and family. If you’d like to create a yearbook ad or plan to submit photos to a church slideshow, we will gladly communicate with school or church representatives and send high-resolution, properly-sized image files on your behalf.
If you’re interested in obtaining non logo-marked photos in order to make unlimited copies, high resolution digital files are available for purchase at a rate of $150 per image or $2500 for the entire collection of 40+ images.
Q. Things got out-of-control crazy and we didn’t book our session as early as originally planned! Can we still book with you and receive our graduation announcements on time?
A. Trust us, we understand schedule craziness! And FYI, we don’t believe in punishing our clients for booking last-minute. Order and design sessions typically take place just two weeks after our photo shoot. If you’re in a rush, however, we’ll bump up the order session by one week free of charge. Need your edited photos within three days along with custom announcements, grad party invitations, a photo canvas, and gifts for grandma and grandpa? Give us a ring and we’ll talk rush fees. 817.905.3375
Q. Let’s talk budget …
A. Let’s do! We mentioned this earlier, but we do have a minimum order requirement of $500. To accommodate every budget, we offer four flexible portrait package options: The Essential, The Classic, The Favorite, and The Dream. If you’d like to design your own portrait package, we also offer a variety of à la carte purchase options—see our Products + Pricing page for more details. For specific pricing information, please don’t hesitate to contact our studio. 817.905.3375
Q. Be honest. Are these photos going to be worth the money?
A. We wish that we could climb a mountain, spread our arms, put on our best Julie Andrews voice and sing, “Yes! Yes! Yes!” to the tune of “Do-Re-Mi”—that’s how passionate we feel about this particular subject. Investing in high-quality images by Love, Me Photography will pay dividends for years to come. You don’t want to remember boring backgrounds, standard poses, and stiff smiles when you think about your child’s senior year, and we don’t want you to either. That’s why we keep our sessions focused on what’s natural to your child, what’s unique about his or her personality, and what’s nearest and dearest to your heart. Each time you look at your Love, Me Photography senior portraits in the years to come, you’ll be reminded of this moment—a moment that’s full of hopes and dreams for the future, with your child standing at the cusp of the adventure of adulthood. So yes. We definitely think these photos are going to be worth the money.
