Your Senior Session | Melissa Braden Photography

I am sure that many of you are wondering what your senior session will be like and have some questions. This blog post will walk you through the process so you get a better feel of how your senior session will be from start to finish.

Step #1-Contacting Me

This sometimes can be the hardest part…making the call! (If you feel more comfortable, you can always text and email me!) When the first initial contact is made, we will set up and date/time and place to meet to talk all about your session! I like to meet at local coffee shops with a comfortable atmosphere where we can get to know each other.

Step #2-The Meeting

This is a meet and greet where I will ask you a ton of questions. This give both you and I the opportunity to get to know each other. I want to know the important things about you, like what is your favorite dessert, music, and style. I love to get on Pinterest while we are together and look at Senior Pictures and see what kinds of pictures you love, so that we can plan your perfect session. We will also go over what to wear, what to bring with you, and choosing your locations. We will also talk about what senior portrait package fits your needs best.

Step #3-Session Day!

Your session day has arrived! I’m sure that you will be excited and nervous all at the same time. I promise I will walk you through the process making it fun, stylish and all about showcasing you! While we are walking around our locations, I will often stop and shift gears if I see a spot with gorgeous lighting and background. Sometimes we do a little hiking to get to those perfect locations!



Step #4- Editing

This is where all the magic happens and I bring your photos to life! I love to edit. I love to see your personality in each of your images. It usually takes me a week to complete the editing processes. I want to make sure that each image is perfect. Once I have completed the editing process I will contact  you to set up a time to look over all your images from your session.


Step #5-Photo Reveal

We are back to our favorite coffee shop and we are ready to look at all your images! I bet you are really excited to see how beautiful you are. We will go through your images a few times to pick out your favorites for your book and prints. I bring along samples of products so that you can touch and see all of the products that I offer.

Step #6-Product Delivery

This is our final step….Once all of your print products have arrived, I will call you to set up a time to deliver them to you. This is a bittersweet moment for me. As we go through this process we build a relationship together and it can be hard for me to say goodbye…but I also get to see your excitement when you see yourself in print.
