Senior year is a bittersweet mix of first and last memories. I am honored you are considering Amanda Nelson Photography to make some of them last a lifetime. ANP holds the reputation for having a highly sought-after senior portrait experience. From your first inquiry to the final delivery of your gorgeous products, you will know that I pride myself in providing the best senior portrait experience around.
As soon as I receive your session retainer, you'll get an email with a link to your session agreement. Once I receive your signed contract, I will mail you the ANP Welcome Packet that includes all of the information you'll need to get ready for your session.
Your Welcome Kit has a variety of helpful resources to help you prepare your outfits, hair, and makeup. Need a few ideas for inspiration? Check out my blog, Instagram, and Pinterest. We will have a consultation phone call to talk about how you want to be photographed and what location you have in mind.
Sometime during the week before your session, I will be in contact to help with any questions you may have and to coordinate our meeting time and place.
On your session day, we will meet either on location, or if you have chosen to, at our studio for hair and makeup. Bring all of your outfits including your accessories.
If you choose the Classic or Signature Session, we will schedule an ordering session about two weeks after we take your portraits. Come ready to relax, view your images, and create the perfect graduate collection. We will start with a beautiful slideshow set to music. Then, we will take a look at all of the products offered. You can touch, feel and handle them all you want. If you booked the Intro Session, you’ll receive a link to your image gallery two-three weeks after your portrait session.
Production times vary from 10-15 business days, depending on the products you order. After a thorough quality check, you will be notified that your order is ready to pick up.
My philosophy for Senior Portraits is simple: your session should be all about you. I strive to make you feel comfortable in your own skin throughout the session because I want you to feel amazing when you look at your images.

Yes! Every session includes unlimited downloads from your online gallery.
You know it! Having a professional hair and makeup artist can make you feel like a million bucks before you set foot in front of the camera. HMUA’s know exactly what makeup is needed to compensate for light manipulators, post-processing, and what colors to use with your skin tone.
Otherwise, wear a touch more than you normally do, and don’t forget the lips.
Bring your outfits, complete with shoes and accessories. Choose outfits that express who you are and complement the locations(s) you have chosen. Ideas include casual, dress, school/sport, and maybe your favorite outfit.
CONSIDER: Dark denim flatters everyone and photographs better than distressed or light washes. V-necks and button-up shirts are flattering for the girls. Accessories can make all the difference in your wardrobe, and bring out your personality.
AVOID: White tennis shoes and socks. Eyes will go immediately to the gleaming white socks peeking out of the bottom of your pants.
Pack a brush, hair spray, face powder, and lip gloss so your face stays fresh through location and wardrobe changes.
Also, be sure to bring a bottle of water and a little snack to keep yourself energized. It’s tough work to be in front of the camera!
When you book your senior portrait session, unlimited downloads from your online gallery are included! I also have an extensive product offering that has been curated over the past 18 years. Whether you’re looking for custom-designed graduation announcements or a beautiful framed canvas, we can put your gorgeous images to work.
Classic & Signature sessions include an in-person Reveal & Design Session where we meet to view your entire gallery of images and design your graduation products. This will typically be 2-3 weeks after your portrait session and is the perfect opportunity to view studio samples of available products.
Yes, and we make it easy by including unlimited downloads from your online gallery with every session.
