Take a look inside the process

How it works

STEP #1

The pre-consultation

Once you have selected your date, signed your contract and sent in your retainer, it's time to start planning your session!
You'll receive my "senior session style" form to fill out to let me know all about you, your style and your vision for your senior session.
From there we will talk outfits, location and the overall vibe of your session!

STEP #2

Your session day

Your day begins at home!  No need to stress about gathering up everything and heading out for hair and makeup.  We will come right to you. Camryn will work with you to create a gorgeous look that is exactly you.  We'll go through your outfits and finalize our plan for the day.
When you are looking fabulous, we will head out to our first location! 

STEP #3

Image premiere ordering session

After your session, I will edit all of your images.  Once I have them ready, it's time to set up your image premiere ordering session!  In the comfort of your home, you will view all of your images.  I'll have samples of all of the products I offer and you will be able to see and feel everything.  I will even design your custom products right there so you can see exactly how they will look!

"One of the best aspects of looking at a photo is reminiscing on the memory and experience of the day it was taken. Every time I look at one of Susan's masterpieces, I remember how uplifting, empowering and confident she made me feel. The detail and beauty of these photos was undeniably different from anything I've ever seen before.
Susan has the expertise and ability to capture the perfect moment. There is a unique and comfortable atmosphere that is created while simply being around Susan. Not only is she a remarkable photographer, but her aspirations lie within the satisfaction of her client to make their hopes and visions come to life.
For my session, I wanted my senior portraits to have a certain look, so Susan and I collaborated on makeup, hairstyles, outfits and locations that would turn my idea into a reality. Susan was more than willing to answer any questions and handle any of my concerns at any moment.
They say a picture captures a thousand words and Susan's pictures do just that. I loved every second of working with her. I could not have asked for a more easy going, approachable, and passionate photographer.
My experience with Susan Dodd was one of my favorite experiences senior year!"

How can I book my session?

It's very easy!

Give me a call or send me an email.  We will talk about what you envision for the session as far as the month goes.  I will let you know what dates are available and you can select your date.

How many outfits should I plan?

Your outfits are a huge part of your look!

You can plan as many outfits as you would like!  I do recommend at least 4, but definitely more if you would like.  We will shoot until the sun goes down, and get to as many of your outfits as we can.

Yes!  Let's celebrate everything that makes you YOU!

Absolutely you can bring any props, accessories, uniforms, awards etc. that are important to you!

Can I do a "natural" makeup look?

Absolutely!  Camryn will do whatever style you desire!

It's a great idea to start a pinterest board just for your senior session.  In it you can have a board for locations/looks you love, outfits that fit your style, and makeup and hair ideas that you would love to try!
We will talk about your ideas, and Camryn will create a look that fits them!

Yes! 

As a former horse owner, I would absolutely LOVE to photograph you and your horse!  You and any pet for that matter!
