Frequently Asked Questions
How much should I plan to invest? You should account for both the session fee and custom portrait collection. The amount you ultimately invest, is entirely dependent on you. Custom portrait collections begin at $700 and a-la-cart prints begin at $120, however, most clients choose to invest between $1,200-$1,800 on their senior portraits. The minimum order requirement is $600.
Are payment plans available? Absolutely! I understand that senior portraits are an investment and 2 month, 4 month, or 6 month payment plans are available. Please note that orders are not fulfilled until final payment is received.
Does the session fee include any images? The session fee is paid at the time of booking your senior experience, and is non-refundable. This fee covers the wardrobe consultation, planning and preparation for the session, the 2-3 hour photoshoot, post-session editing of the images and the Portrait Reveal and Ordering Session. It does not include any images.
What is a gift print? Gift prints are one image on 1 8x10, 2 5x7s, or 32 wallets.
Can I substitute Wall Art for anything else? Yes!
What is a “Portrait Reveal and Ordering Session”? Your Portrait Reveal happens approximately 1-2 weeks after your senior session. You and your parents will meet with me to view the best images captured from your session, for the first time. The images will be in a video slideshow set to music, and then together, we will create a custom portrait collection that is tailored to your needs, home decor, and style. All decision makers must be present at this appointment and final decisions must be made. If another appointment is needed to make final decisions, it can be scheduled for $100.
How many outfits can I bring? As many as you like! Our sessions are based on time and available sunlight, not the number of outfits you bring. In general, 3-5 looks work best. Just keep in mind, that the more time you spend getting ready between outfits, the fewer outfits and locations we may get to.
Do you sell full resolution digital images that we can print ourselves? Yes! You may purchase your full digital image collection a la carte. Digitals are also included in the Platinum and Premium Collections.
How long do you keep my images on file? We keep the images you ordered on file for one year following your portrait session.
Who should I bring to my portrait session? We encourage bring all decision makers with you and maybe a friend. Having too many people can be distracting, uncomfortable and take away from your portrait experience.
Am I required to have my makeup professionally done? As part of the Bleu Peacock Photography senior experience, each session comes with complimentary, professional makeup.
