Our seniors typically book their session about 3-6 months in advance. Yes...THAT EARLY! WHY?! Because our seniors need plenty of time for senior session preparation. So that means if you want a Spring, Summer, or Fall 2024 senior photoshoot, then right now is the time to book it!
1. You actually get a BETTER CHOICE OF DATES when you book early! Think about it...the entire calendar of the available dates is at your disposal! Pick your favorite season and then choose a date! It’s yours!
2. Booking early means you get MORE SENIOR SESSION PREP TIME! Trust me, you do not want to wait last minute to book your senior session. Why? First of all, your favorite senior photographer could already be booked out for the entire year so you are forced to find someone else. Secondly, you DO NOT want to feel rushed when planning your senior photoshoot! Trying to find last minute outfits, hair & makeup artist, etc will only make you feel more stressed out. This is a once in a lifetime experience, so take your time, prep for any last minute needs, and have a stress free senior session by planning ahead!
3. Booking your date early in your senior year also means that if any RESCHEDULES need to happen due to weather changes, illnesses, etc., then there will plenty of dates to choose from to reschedule your senior session.
4. All #MAPSeniors can schedule a complimentary fashion consultation, so we can plan their senior photoshoot + outfits. During the consultation, we spend time narrowing down outfit choices, and pairing each outfit with the right shoes and accessories! Fashion consults must be scheduled 2-4 weeks before the senior session, so there is enough time to pick up any last minute pieces to complete your perfect looks!
5. We also want to give you plenty of time to schedule your hair and nail appointments for pre-session mani/pedis, hair trims, and/or root touch ups!
BONUS: YEARBOOK DEADLINES - Pretty please with a cherry on top - do not wait last minute to schedule your senior session because your yearbook photo is due in a few weeks...or a few days! Most professional senior photographers turnaround times to deliver senior photo galleries are within a  3-6 week timeframe. It takes time for us to edit your senior photos. This means you must book your senior session at least 2-3 months in advance, so you have plenty of time to submit a yearbook photo.
