At Route 12 Photography we pride ourselves on giving the ultimate boutique-type senior portrait experience. All of our sessions include a pre-session consultation(s), wardrobe assistance, portrait session, artistic and enhanced editing, and a Big Reveal Ordering Session.
The Pre-Session Consultation
“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success”. ~ Alexander Graham Bell
Your portrait experience begins in our home office (or a local Starbucks) where we will go over and plan every aspect of your session. As we become acquainted we will discuss what to expect throughout your time with Route 12 Photography. We will begin to devise a plan based on your desired looks and comprised of locations, wardrobe ideas, and hair and makeup applications. We will have as many pre-session consultations as needed to obtain a solid plan and ensure your satisfaction.
The Hair And Makeup Application
Your hair and makeup application will take place prior to your session in the makeup artist’s home studio. She will go over your features and offer advice on the colors, etc. that will look best. Our artist is highly skilled in the makeup application and is experienced with the necessary application for being in front of the camera. Your hair will simply be freshly curled or straightened to provide you with the freshest look for starting your session.
The Portrait Session
Once your hair and makeup session are complete we will meet at our first location. The locations and wardrobe changes will all be previously planned to make better use of our time together….which equals more images. The number of outfits and locations will depend on the portrait session chosen and booked. During your session we will capture posed, candid, smiling, and non-smiling images.
The Big Reveal Appointment
Approximately 2 weeks after your session you will attend your Big Reveal session at our home office. Your images will be presented to you in a slideshow presentation on our 100″ projector screen. We will assist you in picking your favorites and moving forward in your investment. Whether a memory book, canvas or prints all of our products are of the highest quality and come from the nation’s top photography labs. The products we sell are carefully selected to meet the needs of today’s seniors as well as mom and dad. If you need a wall piece our studio software allows us to show you exactly how it will look on your very own walls. Our announcement templates are constantly being added to and updated with the latest designs and material options. Once you have placed your order, if desired, your digital images will leave with you that very day. Your images will also be placed in a gallery and provided to you in a Personal Smart Phone app to share with friends and family through links, or social media.
Once your items are received in our office we will go over them closely to determine if they meet our standards. They are then delivered, shipped, or can be picked up at our office.
Now ENJOY and send your friends:)
