Your Senior Session

what to expect

Step One-Schedule a Consultation:

At this consultation, we will discuss your idea of the "perfect" senior session.  Show me all your ideas, but if you are not sure how to articulate them, or need some ideas, don't worry! I have years of experience collaborating with seniors to pick out wardrobe pieces, locations and help make styling arrangements. Together we will come up with a solid plan before your session. I promise the planning will be so fun and you will leave excited to get started!  Click HERE to schedule your in person consultation.

Step Two-Book Your Session:

Book Early! Booking Early doesn't mean you have to have your session early, it just means you need to get on my calendar early. I book a limited number of seniors between June and October and rarely photograph in November due to weather. So get on my books at least two months in advance.

Did you know that I only photograph one senior a day? That way I can give you individualized attention As soon as you book, I will close all other open time slots for that date. After your consultation, you can book your session now by clicking HERE.

Step Three-Start Prepping:

What do I need to do?

No worries, you will receive plenty of prep materials from Kathleen Murphy Photography to make sure that you are camera ready! You will also have access to our client hub for even more pointers. Now is the time to select your wardrobe, book your hair, makeup and nail appointments to make sure that you are camera ready!

Step Four-Your Session

This is the day! You will have so much fun and we will be sure to keep everything relaxed and enjoyable.

Step Five-Your Ordering Appointment

How do I select my final images?

About two weeks after your session, you will be invited to view your gallery. Once we have gone over all your images, you can create your own collection. First, choose one (or more) art products such as heirloom albums or a quality wall hanging. Then choose your digital images. Do you want Small or Large? Small are printable up to an 8x10 and great for social media. Large are printable up to a 30x40 and also come with the companion social media file.

How to Create Your Own Collection

How much does the average person invest?

Products & Digital Files

Since you get to create your own collection, you can choose to order what works for you. Our specialty are heirloom quality leather or silk wrapped senior albums printed on thick, lustre or matte paper. We also offer ready to hang hand-crafted wall portraits, quality gift prints, senior signature boards, grad cards, and celebration banners. There is no minimum order requirement, however, the typical senior client spends an average of $1500.00 on tangible products and digital files. Please explore the Prints & Product page and see what we have to offer by clicking the button below!

Important Considerations...

Because I value my senior clients and pride myself on delivering a quality experience through individualized care and attention, I book a limited number of senior sessions each year. Once my calendar is full, interested seniors may ask to go on a waiting list.
