Senior Portrait Details

Special Features of our Senior Portrait Sessions

Flexibility

I encourage creativity with your choices of settings, props, and outfits, and to bring your pets, horse, car, even a grandparent or friend to your Portrait Session! Before your Portrait Session, we'll have a pre-session Consultation so I can get to know both the senior and the parents, plan your session, and understand your goals. We'll talk about your ideas, and offer suggestions for locations and style options. The time frames listed for the Signature and Classic Portrait Sessions are averages; basically we photograph until you and I are happy with the number and variety of images we've created.

Print Credits

Most of my Portrait Sessions include a print credit rather than any set packages of prints. The print credit gives you complete freedom to select whatever artwork, prints, photo books, or other gifts that you would like. Of course, you may always add prints and gift items to those selected with your print credit.  I also offer carefully curated Collections which represent a savings over a la carte pricing.

Editing & Retouching

All of your Gallery photos will receive my precise editing to create the most beautiful, genuine images. Every image that you order as a print, enlargement, gift item, book, or high-resolution file will be fully retouched, at no additional charge. My aim is that your photos are as beautiful as you and your memories!

Your Yearbook Photo

Your selected image will be sent to your school for use in your yearbook.  I'll take care of the coordination with your school, to make sure that your yearbook photo is submitted on time and in the correct format.  Yearbook photos are included as part of all of our Senior Portrait Sessions.

Artwork and Gifts

Your Portrait images can be used to create a wide variety of artwork and gifts - from framed art, canvasses, memory books, and custom Graduation Announcements, to metal and wood prints, and jewelry. We'll discuss all the fun options at your Viewing and Ordering Session, held a few weeks after your Portrait Session.

High-Resolution Images

While facebook-quality images are fun to post online, it is the high-resolution digital files which allow you to have a permanent, reproducible, high-quality image to archive and for future use as part of your family's memories. High-resolution digital files are available a la carte, and also as part of our Collections.  Lower-resolution images, suitable for online use and printing in small sizes, are available with a minimum purchase.

  • There's no additional fee, and it's a lot of fun to do your photos together!

Yearbook Only Sessions

Yearbook Only Sessions are scheduled on a few specific days in spring and summer. These are super-mini sessions, about 15 minutes long, specifically for yearbook use.  You may order prints from your session, but are not required to make any additional purchase. Yearbook Only Session dates will be posted on my Blog.

Jennifer Ferber

"Love, love, love, the portraits! We felt very well-prepared. I was so happy with the amount of time Jennifer spent before, during, and after the session.  Carina had a ball. She laughed a lot, so she looks relaxed and happy in her portraits.  Each portrait is so Carina!  The Ordering Session was painless.  I expected to be overwhelmed, but actually enjoyed it. We didn't feel rushed. An amazing experience - absolutely exceeded expectations! We would recommend Jennifer in a heartbeat!"  Rebeca

"I had a lot of fun during my session.  Jennifer took care of everything so I didn't feel stressed about anything and could just relax and enjoy my session.  Jennifer gave just enough direction during the shooting process to ensure the pictures look good but still allowed my personality to show through in the final product. The different locations, outfits, and poses made every picture look great but also made every picture unique. I would definitely recommend J Ferber Photography!" Carina

"It was nice to go over the photos in person with Jennifer, and the yes-maybe-no system simplified the process when choosing photos. Jennifer was very patient throughout the entire process."  Lori
