Your senior session will be filled with adventure, and along the way we will capture some amazing pictures which describe you. We have the room and skill to bring just about any idea to life. Whether capturing your sports interests, musical inclinations, style or maybe even humor, we get to know what makes you tick, then put it into your own visual story.

Senior portrait sessions at Oread Studios won’t fit everyone’s needs. That’s ok.  It’s for people who want their photos taken using unmatched skills and techniques by the person with his name on the sign out front.  It’s for seniors that want photos that pop because of all the attention paid to detail in posing, lighting and editing.  It’s for people that want their senior’s personality captured at a milestone time in their life in a timeless portrait that can be hung on the wall until THEIR children can see it some day.  It’s for seniors that want photos to look like them.  Oread Studios is for people that want the best.

 

When you look at pricing you are even more confused. “Free session fees”, “Images included”, “Natural Light Photographer”. There are some that have complete packages for $119. On the other end there are some that won’t share their prices until after you have paid the sitting fee.  Many studios give you a “price range of what people spend” without sharing their complete prices or the prices of the prints, leaving you shocked at the total price you will feel forced to pay. You may even feel remorse for what you just purchased and it actually takes away from the beauty of the photos and fun of the experience for your senior.

At. The. First. Meeting.

We are parents too

make an informed decision from the start

Step One: Initial Meeting
  • In our first meeting, we will meet at the studio to discuss your session ideas and review our print price list and unique capabilities.

 

  • This is a no-pressure meeting and meant to give you the information you need to make budget choices from the very beginning.

 

  • This meeting generally lasts about an hour.

 

  • If you decide Oread Studios is a good creative fit, we will set a photo session day and collect the session fee to hold your day. We will also discuss key points such as wardrobe and what to bring to the shoot.

 

  • Last, we will set a day for the highly-anticipated session reveal. You will know when your images will be ready from the very beginning.
Step Two: The Photoshoot Day
  • This is where we have a blast capturing you–the things which make you different than anyone else in the world…
Step Three: The Reveal Day!
  • During your return visit, we will sit down and enjoy a video presentation of your images and make decisions regarding your print and media choices.

 

  • We will go through all of your images and can even use the reveal software and an image of your home to see what the images will look like in various forms in your home when complete.

 

  • Our media packages are bundled to save you money versus individual a-la-carte items. These packages are carefully selected from our best selling and most commonly chosen media items. You will always have the ability to use a-la-carte if that interests you the most.

 

  • We also extend discounts for larger print orders, and for clients interested in only digital images, there is a package which allows you to purchase the Hi-Res digital and includes a print release!

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

We highly recommend scheduling your session the summer before your senior year begins.  Once school starts, schedules can be hectic and finding the time to get it done can be troublesome.  Our fall semester dates book well in advance so waiting until the last minute might cause you to miss the opportunity to be photographed by us.  If you schedule in the summer and you can check one big thing off your senior year “To Do” list.

All it takes is a phone call and to schedule your pre-session consultation at the studio.  We plan out your session with you in person!  You will tour our studio, and see all of our high quality print products.

We will meet face to face at our studio and plan out your senior portrait session with you in detail.  We will select the perfect locations, discuss your outfit choices and give you some great tips on how to prepare for your special day so it is totally stress free.  You’ll also get the opportunity to view all of our high quality products which are on display and see exactly what you will get when you place your order.  Styling assistance is included in your session!

Both!  We have an climate-controlled 2200 sq. ft. studio and HMUA (Hair & Make Up) room for indoor shoots.  We also will go on location to the places you choose at your consultation.  Oread Studios gives you a lot of variety in your images!

Absolutely!  You receive complimentary hair styling and makeup by Lou & Co in Lawrence with the Ultimate session so your look is perfect for the shoot.  Depending upon your shoot location and session length, we may choose to have HMUA on-location for part of the day.  HMUA assistance is also available for the Essential and Expression sessions for an additional fee.

Expert retouching is included with every session and is completed on all of your delivered images.  We use techniques which maintain skin texture and only retouch blemishes or discolorations which are not part of the permanent you.  We also include you in the retouching process and use your feedback to update any edits as needed when needed.  It is not often that we have to revisit an edit, but actively invite you to provide your approval before we deliver a final edit.

Of course!  While we won’t make BFF shots the center of our session together, we welcome shooting a few images which capture your amazing friendship.  A friend shoot would be considered a session extra and we are excited to talk with you about your ideas!

All of our packages offer a certain number of what we call, “social media” images.   These are images which are formatted for web use with the correct size and color space to show correctly on any web page.  All that we ask is that you give credit to @oreadstudios when doing so. 

 

We also offer a package in which you can purchase some or all of the edited digital images from your session which must be bought in conjunction with a print package.  Please inquire if this is something which interests you.

While cash or check is preferred, for your convenience, we do accept all major credit/debit cards.  We also offer a 90 day payment plan.
