On Location Grad Sessions

I know there's still snow on the ground here in Calgary, but grad season is right around the corner and I'm now taking bookings for spring
on-location grad sessions. 

Most Calgary grads have a cap & gown photo done at school along with a couple casual portraits. That's great, but will you have any beautiful portraits in your prom gown?  For most girls this is one of the most special dresses that they will ever own in their life (other than their wedding gown). They spend hours and hours planning and shopping for their gown and their accessories, yet sadly most girls are lucky to get a few iphone snaps in their gown on grad day.  Graduation day is usually VERY hectic and it's often very difficult to set aside some time to capture some great photos. I've heard this from SO MANY people!!  So here is a fabulous idea. Schedule a hair and makeup test about a month BEFORE your grad, and then book a prom gown portrait session for the same day. That way we can take as much time as we need to create some beautiful portraits of you in your gown! Doing your portraits before grad will give you the chance to have your portraits ready to use before grad. You can use them on announcements or invitations, and even have an album or wall portrait to disply at your graduation party.  

Another option is to book a prom gown session AFTER your graduation. July is a perfect month for outdoor portraits in Calgary since the weather is nice and all the flowers are in bloom.  Again, we can take as much time as we need to create beautiful portraits.  And it's fun to get all dressed up in your gown again too!! Many of my clients have taken this option.

May, June, and July are the best months for outdoor grad photos since all the gorgeous flowers are in bloom, but the blooms don't last long so I only have limited spots available. Book now!
