Sarah Shearer Presents: Preserving Memories | Senior Info and Pricing

It's your senior year; you have made it at last. The high school is yours to rule and this year everything will be perfect. Everything, including your senior pictures. Yes, gone are the days of those tiny, generic yearbook pictures. Those are for the underclassmen. You are a senior now and only the best will do. My goal is to give you just what you deserve, the best. I understand how important your senior yearbook photo is, which is why we produce nothing but the best.
I love capturing emotions and personalities. Every person I get the opportunity to work with is truly unique. Not only are my sessions about having fun and letting their personality come out, they are about documenting some of the best times in your life.  Every senior has their future on their mind. Their  heads are filled with dreams, thoughts of college, and the excitement of going off on their own. I live to be able to capture that time in their lives.  Everything from the laughing and seriousness to the in-between, through my vision and my lens, I will capture those emotions and personalities.

I don’t dangle ridiculously low session fees just to require you to purchase hundreds of dollars in prints later on. I also don’t hide our pricing. Below you will find the two types of sessions I offer:


 We can't wait to help you design a beautiful and one of a kind invitation for this special time in your life. From high school to college graduations, we have you covered!!! Pricing for this amazing addition to your session is available upon request.


You don’t necessarily need to “dress up” for your portrait session. The best images are usually captured when you wear clothing that you are comfortable in and outfits that match your unique style. I recommend trying to keep things simple by picking solid colors and coordinating your wardrobe as much as possible. The only exception is to avoid wearing solid white. 
Steer clear of busy patterns, bright colors, or logos and consider bringing along several 
different clothing changes. Adding or removing a jacket, changing into different shoes, or putting on a different shirt can change your outfit just enough to make it appear that you are wearing an entirely different wardrobe. Also be sure that your clothing is clean and free of wrinkles. 
Start by getting plenty of sleep the night before. Tired and baggy eyes will show up in the final images. On the day of your portrait session, be sure to apply your makeup the same way you would on any other day. It’s usually not a good idea to try out something new right before having your pictures taken. I want your images to be a true reflection of you!  I recommend bringing at least two outfits. Most senior girls change into three or four outfits during their session. Select a wardrobe that can be coordinated together (for example, pants that look good with two or three different shirts, etc.). Watch out for bra straps that might be hanging out. And of course, be careful not to wear a dark colored bra under light colored shirts or you might be surprised what shows up in the final photographs.
Consider getting a haircut a few days before the session. On the day of the session, take a shower, shave and comb your hair. Get ready for the portrait session like you’re planning to meet someone important or special. It’s tough to capture great senior pictures if you show up with “bed head” (yes, it happens!) or if you haven’t changed your clothes in a few days. Bring at least one extra change of clothes. I totally understand that most guys don’t want to change multiple times, but you should have at least one extra shirt and pants on hand.
