As a senior photographer, one of the best parts of my job is capturing the uniqueness and personalities of each and every client I work with. After each session ends, one of the most important parts begins; choosing beautiful prints and products that you can display in your home, office or dorm. I sit down with every client and help them make informed decisions about what things they want or need. One of the most important parts of choosing these items is knowing what will work best for you/your senior and your needs.
Consider the financial investment: Of course, a senior session is an investment but the prints and products are also an investment. It’s important to work together as a family to determine what will work for your budget. I always encourage transparency when it comes to finances because your investment should bring celebration and happy memories and not a strain to relationships in your life. Having the conversation before you book with us or discuss an investment makes it much smoother! Our average client invests $1600-$3200 on their collection.
Think about who may want the prints and products: Oftentimes, there are grandparents, aunts, or uncles who may want their own copies of prints or products, so be sure to make a list of items you want to order. This ensures that what you order will have a home where it will be treasured!
Consider your preferences and decor: Are you looking for a large display piece like a canvas? Do you have a space that will accommodate it in your home? I have seen clients who live in small or large homes, and not take into account where they will hang a large piece. Knowing what you can display in your home on bookshelves or walls will keep you focused on the items that will be truly treasured and displayed with love. With the high-quality prints and products that we offer, you will find whatever you will need, from prints to canvases and everything in between.
By carefully thinking through your budget, where they will be displayed, and the types of things you want, you will find the prints and products that will truly work for you and your senior/family! I’m always happy to offer additional insight into your preferences and help guide you along the way.
