High quality photography delivered with a joyful spirit


The senior experience

Early Bird Photo's senior experience session includes a professional hair & makeup artist for the ladies (and an additional $50 print credit for the gents), four or five outfits, and two or three locations.  The session typically lasts 3 or 4 hours (including hair & makeup) but can vary depending on what locations we use.  The senior experience session is customized for each teen, so an in-studio complimentary consultation will take place to discuss your teen's vision for his or her images. 

Prints, products and digital images are sold separately during your ordering session a week or two after the shoot.  There are multiple investment levels that all include a print credit, to be used towards prints and products.  The higher your initial investment, the higher the percentage that goes toward your print credit.  The levels available are as follows:

500 creative fee includes a 200 print credit

800 creative fee includes a 550 print credit

1200 creative fee includes 1000 print credit

1800 creative fee includes 1800 print credit


The senior experience lite

We also offer a lite senior experience.  This session lasts one hour, in one location, with a maximum of two outfits for 350, which includes a 150 print credit.  Senior lite sessions are offered on weekdays only.  Just as with the full senior experience session, prints products and digital images are sold separately during your ordering session.  Professional hair and makeup can be added to the lite session for an additional cost.
