EXPERIENCE

the

I love what I do more than I could ever explain, however, I believe I serve a greater purpose than simply being your senior portrait photographer. Through my unique and individualized approach to senior portraits, I’m able to encourage my seniors to be true to themselves and kind to their peers. The portrait experience I offer, is known for creating a radiant, confidence boost in the teen girls that I work with. I believe in serving my seniors and their parents well, which is why I only offer a limited amount of boutique-style, senior portrait experiences each year. I will take my time getting to know you on a personal level, so that I am able to create a custom portrait experience that is tailored specifically to you. Taking that extra time to learn about your hobbies, likes, dislikes, style, and personality, will give me the ability to tell your story, so much more authentically. 








After booking, you will receive a detailed, online questionnaire to fill out. This questionnaire will help me get to know you and understand your vision for your senior portraits. I use this information to select the perfect locations to coordinate your style and outfits. Shortly after submitting your questionnaire, you will receive a detailed welcome magazine in the mail, including tips on what to wear, how to prep for your portrait session, exclusive recommendations for professional services (hair, makeup, nails, and more!) and what to expect from start to finish. 


We will meet at a pre-determined location a few hours before sunset when the light is soft and golden. We will have so much fun during your 1-2 hour photo shoot. Allowing for 2 hours of shooting time gives me the ability to photograph you in multiple, unique locations from the urban city to a natural field, with more outfit changes than you could ever dream of!


Within 2 weeks of your senior portrait session, your online gallery will be available and you'll be able to view, download, share, and print your images. At that time, you will also receive a digital catalog of our heirloom products and portrait collections to order from (optional).

Before your senior session

DAY OF YOUR SENIOR SESSION

AFTER YOUR SENIOR SESSION

STILL HAVE

questions?


As many as you like! My senior sessions are based on time and available sunlight,
not the number of outfits you bring. In general, 3-5 outfits work best. 


As soon as possible! Typically, there are only 3-4 dates available for seniors each month, 
from April-November, and dates fill up quickly. 


Senior Portrait Sessions are all inclusive of a 1-2 hour portrait session, 25-35 digital images, and an online gallery to view, download, print, and share your images. After receiving your online gallery, you'll have the option to add on products or a portrait collection, and at that point, the amount you ultimately invest, is entirely up to you.
.

Unfortunately, no. Weekends are reserved for spending time with my family. 
Just like most other careers I work during weekdays and have portrait sessions in the evenings.


Digital Images are actually included in your senior portrait session! You can expect to receive 25-35 images, and you'll easily be able to order prints directly through your online gallery! 


Yes! I understand that senior portraits are an investment and I wanted to make this experience accessible to all types of budgets. I offer 2 month, 4 month, or 6 month payment plans for portrait collections only. Your order will be available for local pick up within 4-6 weeks after full payment has been made. 


You can expect to receive 25-35 images in your online gallery. 


If there is a 60% chance of rain or more within 24 hours of your senior portrait session,
we will simply reschedule to the earliest possible date available.  


Of course! I love including friends, family, or a significant other in senior portraits! I suggest having them
meet us at our final location during the last 30 minutes of your portrait session, so that we can get as many images
of you, solo, first! Having too many people there during the whole session can be distracting,
uncomfortable and take away from your portrait experience.


UM, YES! Have you read my bio? I LOVE dogs! I love including fur-babies into senior portraits, however,
I do suggest having a family member or friend to look after your pup once we are finished photographing you with them. 


I will keep your images on file for one year following your portrait session, however, your images will be protected in an online gallery for 10 years.

These memories are unique to your journey, therefore, I don't believe in requiring you to purchase pre-packaged heirlooms. I wanted to keep my senior portrait experiences simple, therefore, each senior portrait experience is all inclusive.

Although, twenty years from now, I want you to enjoy these memories just the way that you had envisioned; whether that be flipping through the pages of one of our luxe albums, seeing your portrait above your parent's fireplace or going through a memory box of your favorite images. I understand that heirloom products may not be a priority for each senior's family, therefore, products and portrait collections are an optional addition to our all-inclusive senior portrait experience. I offer a beautiful, quality line of heirloom items to choose from including classic canvases, modern metal wall art, luxury albums, custom image boxes, graduation announcements, and other custom products. I am incredibly proud to share that all of the Destinee Stark Photography wall art is handcrafted locally here, in Akron, Ohio.
