Senior Photography Questions

We get a lot of questions from parents about High School Senior Photos. So we wanted to take a few minutes and answer some of the more common questions we hear. If you have any questions not listed below, feel free to contact us!

  1. Do You Have a Studio?
    Our commercial studio is located at 1908 W. 42nd Street in Sioux Falls. Just one block east of 42nd and Western Avenue. Our studio is a spacious 1600+ square feet with a large camera room and dressing room. We have a nice selection of backdrops to fit pretty much any personality.
  2. Can We Do Photos Outdoors?
    Of course we can! Our studio is just minutes from great parks, outdoor areas and downtown. We can do part or all of your senior photos outdoors. You decide.
  3. How much does it cost?
    Our Senior Sessions are priced pretty simply. Take a look at our sessions and fees here…
  4. When Do I Pay?
    We ask that you put a 50% retainer toward your session when you call to reserve your date. The balance is due on session day.
  5. How Many Outifts Can I Bring?
    As many as you want. We suggest about two to three outifts per hour of photography. Our dressing room is quite large and can most likely fit your closet.
  6. Can I Bring My Parents or a Friend?
    Of course parents are always welcomed and encouraged to come along. Because time is important, a friend that comes along will be able to watch from the dressing room. Although we suggest leaving friends at home…
  7. How Long Before I Can See My Photos?
    The proofs from your session will be ready in about one week after your session. In fact when you call to reserve your photo session, we will setup your viewing session at the same time
  8. Do You Do Retouching?
    We sure do. If you happen to have acne, don’t worry about it. We will make sure it is retouched and gone in any prints your purchase from our studio.
  9. Explain the Studio Credit Again?
    For example the “The 120” session is $450. Of that amount you receive a $400 studio credit that can be used to purchase anything from our studio for your senior photos. In other words the credit can go toward things like wall portraits, storyboards, gift prints, grad cards etc.
  10. Do You Offer Print Packages?
    No not anymore. we found that people were ordering packages and getting photos they didn’t use or give away. We prefer the Ala-Carte way to purchase our prints and products. Order what you need and want.
  11. I’m Not Sure What To Order For Graduation!
    We have a great selection of graduation announcements, thank-you’s and more. We will be happy to sit down and go through your needs for graduation.
