The Experience

Hey there!

I know that choosing a photographer for your senior portraits can be a pretty daunting task. Let’s face it – there are lots of photographers, lots of options and lots to overwhelm you (kindof like walking into Forever 21, right?). Don’t panic, I’m here to help!

So, why choose Stephanie Newbold Photography for your senior pictures?

Lots of reasons! I’m definitely not the boring yearbook photo guy who cranks ‘em in and out as fast as he can, because he has a contract with your school. You know the scenario: everyone has the same backgrounds and the same poses.  With me, you aren’t just another pretty face; you’re someone with a unique personality – your own kind of charm and your own kind of beautiful. Senior portrait sessions with me are fun, relaxed and different. They’re all about you, and making sure you have senior pictures that are as authentic as you are.

Creating a portrait experience that is designed and styled around you is my primary goal. You could even call it my specialty: I *only* do senior portraits. Each session includes a planning, style and design consultation prior to the actual session. We’ll meet at my studio and spend some time talking over ideas about locations, style and wardrobe ideas. We’ll talk about what you like and what you don’t, what you want and what you don’t. We’ll spend some time creating a session that’s kindof like your favorite pair of jeans – a perfect fit for YOU.

You probably noticed that our most popular session includes a professional make-up application and hair styling. Why? Well, because I truly believe that having your makeup and hair done before your session is one of the best ways you can pamper yourself, and look amazing for your portraits. Don’t worry – this isn’t glamour shots, or the department store makeup counter. My styling team is soooo good. Alexis and Molly will totally work with you to create a flawless face that’s camera ready. You’ll look just like the best version of yourself!

One of the best things about a senior portrait session with me is that we aren’t limited to the same ol’ same ol’ studio poses and backdrops. Where do we shoot your session? Just about anywhere! I’m a natural light, on-location photographer, which means the world is our studio. Shooting on location gives us virtually limitless backdrops, unique locations, gorgeous light, and endless possibilities to tell your story, the way you want it told.  Our session will be fun – we’ll talk, we’ll laugh (well, you’ll laugh at me, probably!) and we’ll spend some time getting great photos that you’ll love to show off to your family and friends.

After your session, I’ll get to work on selecting the best of the best images to show in your portrait gallery. Each image gets the star treatment – it’s carefully selected, custom edited, flawlessly re-touched, and beautifully finished for you to view. When your images are ready for their debut, we’ll schedule some time for you and your parents to come into the studio for your Session Reveal and Ordering Appointment. We’ll watch your senior slideshow, and go through all of the images together. You can show me what you love and what you like, and pick your favorites. I’ll be there to help answer your questions, show you what different sizes look like and help you figure out how to get the images you want, the way you want them.

It’s that easy. It’s that fun. And it’s that fabulous!
