"Emmalee did such a great job with my daughter Keeli for her senior pictures. She was so excited but a little nervous to get them done but Emmalee made her feel really comfortable. We just reviewed her photos and were very happy with the results!" - Brenda

What happens during the consultation?

First, I will meet with you and at least one of your parents. I will learn about your personality, your passions and goals for the photo session. I'll listen to your ideas and share some of our own. We'll go through each step of the process so you will know what to expect and will feel relaxed and comfortable on the day of the session. I'll answer any questions you might have and offer tips for how you can make things go as smoothly as possible during the photography session. We will also plan the look and style of your session, including locations and clothing.

Do I have to pay a deposit?

During the consultation, I will work with your schedule to determine the perfect day and time for your photo session. You will pay a non-refundable deposit, sign a contract for my services and I will reserve the date for your session.

How many outfits can I bring?

You can wear up to four different outfits. During your consultation I will go over the different Collections offered, which vary depending on how many locations and outfits you want.

Should I do my own hair and makeup?

You are welcome do your own styling, but because makeup photographs differently than what the naked eye sees, we recommend using our stylist, which can be included in your collection.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes, of course! We actually have an option to have your senior photos taken with your best friend!!

Do you offer Digital Images?

Yes, I offer a Digital Collection that includes edited images, typically 60 images on a wooden thumb drive with printing rights (the copyrights to the images stays with the photographer, the original creator of the images).

Do you have a senior rep program?

Yes! My senior rep program gives you incentives to tell your friends about your experience at Schaumburg Photography. If you are interested in learning more about how to be a senior rep, book a consultation and I will go over all the details!
