the vanessa jordan senior experience
Hey there senior! I'm so excited that you are interested in the Vanessa Jordan Senior Experience! Below you will find recently asked questions, package information and all that you would need to know about booking your senior session with Vanessa Jordan Photography!
1. Booking and planning
The full amount is due upon signing your contract for your senior session. This is to lock in your date and get all the business taken care of and out of the way. Once that is taken care of we will start planning locations and outfits for your session.
2. your session
The day has arrived! It's time for your senior session! We will start off the session by meeting at a local coffee shop close to the first location. We will chat a bit and discuss which outfits you brought will look best at each location. We will then take the remainder of our time together to shoot and travel to each location. I will walk you through each pose so you are comfortable and confident in front of the camera! For the last 30 minutes of the session you can have a friend or significant other join you for some photos. This is a great moment to have this person join in on the fun!
3. social media sneak peak
The next day I will share a sneak peak on social media from your session so you can see and share! You can expect your online gallery to be delivered two weeks after your session.
Two weeks after you senior session your online gallery will be delivered! In this gallery you can easily download, share and print your fully edited, high-resolution photos. You will even have access to your gallery on your phone so you can share you photos wherever you go! Your gallery is backed up for THREE years online so you won't have to worry about loosing your images!
4. gallery delivery
This session includes 2 hours of shooting time, 60+ fully edited images and an online gallery where you can download, share and print your high resolution images. It also includes 2-3 outfit changes and 2-3 locations in the Greater Milwaukee Area. On the day of your session we will meet on location to discuss what outfit will work best at each location biased on what you have selected from your own closet!
the Vanessa Jordan senior experience
1. how to I pay for my senior session?
You are able to pay and sign the contract completely online. I will send you your proposal and you will be able to sign and pay all at once.
2. Do you provide payment plans?
Yes I do, but only upon request. The full amount must still be paid before the session. If you are doing a payment plan I will set up a schedule to be easily reminded through my online service I use called Honeybook. You will be able to pay each payment easily.
3. When do you schedule your senior sessions?
I schedule my senior sessions Tuesday and Thursday evenings. This is so we can capture these photos just as the sun is setting to create some stunning images.
4. How does my online gallery work?
I will send you a link and password to access your gallery once it is ready. You will enter the password and will be able to view all the images. There will be an icon in the upper right hand corner that will let your download all of the images as well as an icon that will set you share individual photos on social media.
5. Do your packages include prints?
My packages do not include prints. However, on your online gallery there is an option to purchase prints through Pixiset which is where I house your gallery. This is completely optional but it is there if this is easiest for you. Otherwise you may get your images printed anywhere you please but I cannot guarantee the quality of the print if you get your photos printed other than from your online gallery.
6. What if I am late to my session?
If you are late you do not get extra time. When the sun goes down and there is no more light, we cannot keep shooting. Please afford an extra 10 minutes to arrive at our meeting location to ensure that you are on time.
7. When should I expect my online gallery?
You will receive your online gallery about two weeks after your session.
8. How many images will I receive in my online gallery?
You will receive about 60-70 images in your gallery.
9. How long does my online gallery last?
Your gallery will last three years. Please insure that you download your images and save them in a safe place because you will want to go back and look at them! You do have your gallery for three years but once that expires, the gallery will be gone.
10. Can I bring someone to my senior session?
Yes you can! A parent or guardian must be there during the ENTIRE session. However, for the last 30 minutes you may have your best friend, boyfriend or girlfriend or even puppy join you for some photos! This is ONLY for the last 30 minutes.
11. How many outfits can I bring?
You may bring 3-4 outfits. If you play any sports or have a uniform or jersey you would like to wear you may bring that as well. Your jersey doesn't count as an outfit so you can have 3-4 additional outfits with your jersey.
12. Can I ride with you between locations?
No you may not. You can ride with your parent or guardian that way nothing is mistakenly left in my car by accident.
13. Can I post behind the scenes during the session?
Yes you may! I will doing so as well so feel free to post as much of your experience as you wish!
