Senior Portrait Session Info

Today’s high school seniors want fun, modern portraits that reflect their personalities. Stephanie Wallace Photography is one of Northwest Indiana’s premier senior portrait studios. I offer a senior portrait experience customized just for you, excellent high quality images, a diverse product line and exceptional customer service.

Initial Consultation – All portrait sessions include a complimentary pre-session consultation, where you can meet with me in person at my studio in downtown Chesterton, IN. You will be able to view a slide show of my senior portrait portfolio, and view samples of the products I offer. We can determine the style of session you are interested in and go over options of what to wear. Then if you decide to go ahead and book a session, I’ll go over my studio policies and contract, collect your $150 retainer fee, and get you on the calendar.

Session Time – I will call you the day before your session to confirm or to re-schedule in the case of bad weather. If you are getting makeup done or have added on the mini studio session, we will begin by meeting at the studio, otherwise we will meet at the pre-determined location for your photo shoot. Please arrive on time. Don’t worry if you have never worked with a professional photographer before, I will make it easy for you by helping you with poses and making sure you look your best. It will be a lot of fun! At the end of your session, we will schedule a date and time for your gallery reveal and ordering appointment.

Gallery Reveal and Ordering Appointment– Every senior portrait session includes an in-person gallery reveal and ordering appointment. This appointment will be scheduled approximately 3 weeks after your photo session. You will come to the studio for this appointment and we start out by watching a slideshow, set to music, featuring all of your edited proofs. Don’t worry about picking your favorites yet, just sit back and enjoy the show. Once the slideshow is over I will walk you through the different products offered and help you create the collection that best fits your needs. I’ll make the process of choosing easy for you by helping you sort the photos to select your favorites. If you choose to purchase a folio collection, album or photo book, we will choose the photos that will be included at this time. Prices vary depending on what you select, most clients spend between 600-1,000.  I accept all major credit cards and I do offer convenient payment plans to fit your budget if needed.   I only schedule one reveal and order appointment per session, so be sure that all financial decision makers are present and be prepared to make all your ordering decisions at this time. Ordering appointments typically last about an hour. If a payment plan is needed, I will go over the details and set it up at this time. Once your total is paid in full, I will place your order. Your purchases should arrive in about three weeks (or sooner, depending on what you order). I will give you a call when your order is in and scheduled pick up or delivery.
