Senior photography sessions should tell the story of you. The journey you have made and the journey you are embarking on.

Your Story
In Pictures.

Your senior photography session is all about YOU!
Senior photography sessions by Stanley Harper are not your run of the mill photography session.
My philosophy towards any photography session is that it is about the client, which is YOU!
Upon receiving the senior photography questionnaire from you, we will schedule a consultation.  At the consult, we will go over your questionnaire and begin designing YOUR senior photography session.  Once the session has been created, then we will have the session.   The session is going to a time to take pause as we create that portfolio that will tell the world about you.  Where you have been, what you have done, where you are going, and what you will do.   
2-3 weeks after your session, we will schedule a reveal session.  At the reveal session, we will go through your senior photography portfolio.   You will also be able to purchase products.  There is a whole range of available products to include the ever popular metal prints that come in sizes that are perfect for desks and sizes that can be hung on the wall.

Don’t relegate yourself to the same location used by other photographers over and over.

I love going to different locations for each photography session.  While I have a number of “go to” locations that I use, I will rotate those locations based on how often I have used it for other photography sessions. 
The locations will also depend on the session that we create.    Sometimes we will use locations around the school you will be graduating from.   If you are involved in sports, we could very well use the field or arena.  Are you in band?  Let’s head into the music room or better yet, the auditorium.   We can head downtown to your favorite hang out spots.  Going outside town to an open field and creating a signature environmental portrait is also on the menu.
What about destination senior photography sessions?  Let’s go for it!  Do you have a special location such as a beach?  Or do you have a dream trip that you would like to make to put the “icing on the cake” so to speak?  Let’s chat and by the way, I have a passport so the possibilities are endless!
Photography is creating, and creating requires creativity!   

Frequently Asked Questions

Investment in a senior photography session begins at $250.  

  • This includes the consultation, creation and design of the session.
  • 2-3 hours at several different locations, and 2-3 different outfits.
  • Reveal session that includes a one time discount on all products ordered during the reveal.

In this day and age of rapidly evolving technology, do you really want a disc?  

Fact is many computers these days do not come with disc drives and the discs will degrade over time.

One thing professional photographers have to do to maintain a high level of service is maintain multiple backups of the digital files we create from sessions. 

The digital files from your photography session are available for purchase.  If you purchase wall art, then the digital file for that particular piece is included.

I pride myself on the fact that I focus on providing print products to include regular prints, canvas, metal and acrylic prints to clients.  Prints have withstood the test of time and in my own personal collection, I have family prints ranging back over a century.

Heck yeah!  I love to travel and I love going to awesome locations to have photography sessions.  There is a travel charge outside of my “local” area, but I also run special rates on certain locations that are significantly lower than having a travel charge applied.

Once the session is over, I will go through the session and select the images that will make the final cut.

Some clients wonder why only some of the images make it to the final gallery and that is simple. All of the images that are not good, that is to say images that are out of focus, there were closed eyes, or any other number of issues that may appear will get the image deleted.

My goal is to present the best of the best images from the session instead of overwhelming you with 200 images that all look a like.

I will be launching an ambassador program for the Class of 2019.   Sign up for my newsletter to be notified once I open up the application process to have first shot to be selected.

Yes, please bring props and more than likely, we will have discussed and implemted props into the session during the session design process.

And yes, feel free to bring your best friend and include them in the session for a shot or two.
