Session Highlight : The Custom Senior Session

Andover Senior Photos

Now is the time to reach out if you are a Senior in the class of 2022 — I know it seems early, but Summer and Fall book very quickly around here! I offer a variety of Senior Session packages, and my most popular is definitely the Custom Session. Clients love it for the flexibility, extra attention, and the number of options they’ll have to choose from in their proofing gallery.

What are Custom Sessions?

The Custom Senior Session allows you to choose your location, anywhere within an hour of Andover, MA — whether that be the city, the beach, a meadow, or any other environment that you have in mind (I have lots of suggestions too). These sessions last 60-90 minutes (Simple Sessions run around 30 minutes), allowing enough time for a wardrobe change, if you’d like one. We’ll discuss wardrobe, along with hair and makeup prior to your session, and all your questions will be answered. Also included in the package are 10 digital files that will be retouched to perfection (flyaways and blemishes will disappear!). You’ll also receive 20% your order of additional fine art prints up to size 16×20, and 10% off canvases, albums, and image boxes.

Mackenzie’s session took place at the beautiful Stevens Coolidge Place in North Andover. It’s a super popular location for seniors and families alike (and with some recent changes they’ve been making I think it’s going to be more gorgeous than ever!).

Thinking about a wardrobe change?

The Custom Session definitely allows you time for that! Maybe you are torn between two outfits, or not sure whether you want to be casual or more dressed up. Some seniors want a few photos in jeans, or an every day look, and some in a dressier look. Mackenzie just had two dresses she loved, so we used both! I’ve even had a couple of seniors come with three outfits because they just could not decide. It’s always fun to play a little, and wardrobe options are part of that.

You can include your family, too! (If you want!)

One of my favorite things about a Custom session is that we have enough time to get your whole family in some photos, if you choose. While the Senior is always the center of attention, we can easily divide up our 90 minutes or so to include other family members for as much or as little time as you want. Having them there at the very beginning of the session and then sending them on their way often works well. Parents always love having a few photos with everyone together.

It was really nice to have Mackenzie’s family pop into a few photos (and I even snuck in a few headshots for her mom while we were there!).
