A CUSTOM EXPERIENCE JUST FOR YOU
Here at SCP, we want to make it all about you. We take you out for coffee to discuss all the details, we share outfit ideas and hair & makeup tricks, and we will even come to your home to check out the space your art will be displayed in and to style you to complement your personality. You’ll have access to our exclusive client database of locations and hair & makeup artists, as well as our private what-to-wear inspiration boards. Your session is designed, from start to finish, specifically for you!

LUXURY PHOTOGRAPHIC ART
Sarah Christine Photography offers luxury mounted photographic prints, gallery-wrap canvases, metal wall art, bamboo-mounted photographic prints, memory boxes, custom cards, and handmade albums to ensure all portraits we create are showcased in beautiful art. We’ll discuss your display options for the space you’re in and your needs for your custom collection of artwork showcasing you.
T H E S T E P S
We start with a pre-session consultation to get to know each other and go over the details of Sarah Christine Photography sessions. This allows you to ask me questions and express your dreams for your session face-to-face before you book. We talk through everything, and when you’re ready to book, you’re just a signed contract and a session fee away.
PREPPING FOR THE SESSION
Leading up to the session, we’ll be in touch, going over wardrobe choices and giving you our client-exclusive hair & makeup artist recommendations. You want to look and feel your best for your portrait session. If you ever have any questions, I’m here to answer, because I want this to be an amazing experience for you.
YOUR SESSION - SPOTLIGHT ON SENIOR/TWEEN
The session itself is always so much fun. At the beginning of our session, you’ll receive basic modeling training to help you feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera, and throughout the session I’ll actively coach you through poses, creating a mixture of classic poses and organic lifestyle. Before the session, I always map out a session plan for various locations that will compliment your personal style and session goals, which means that during the session, we have more time for capturing beautiful photographs.
YOUR SESSION - TIME FOR SIBLING, PARENT, & FAMILY PORTRAITS
At the end of our full experience senior & tween sessions, you have the option of bring siblings and parents in for a few sets of portraits with the people who love you most. This means that through your senior or tween portraits, you’ll also receive complimentary family and sibling portraits as well and can order custom holiday cards stress-free.
After the session comes the best part—the reveal! You’ll get to view the portraits for the first time and purchase stylish portrait art. Seeing seniors’ excited smiles and parents’ joyful tears as the portraits tug at your hearts tugs at my heart. After the reveal and ordering appointment, once all your artwork is ready, I package it and deliver it to you. It’s like Christmas!

WHEN TO CONTACT ME
Contact me as soon as you can. Since I do custom planning for each session, which takes more time than just showing up and shooting, we want to make sure we can meet a few weeks out from your session in order to properly prepare. You can contact me at any time of the day, and I’ll respond within the nearest business hours (9:00 AM-5:00 PM).

You’ll want to look at scheduling your session spring of junior year, summer before senior year, or fall of senior year.

These are pretty flexible, and you can do these nearly any time. Keep in mind that my fall calendar fills pretty quickly, so aim for earlier in the year if possible.
