CCA 2018 Spring Picnic - Senior Portrait info
Hello and welcome to the website for my professional photography services, Blueghost Studio!
I'm honored that Colorado Connections Academy has asked me to return for their spring picnic so that I can offer senior portraits again! If you're unfamiliar with my alliance with CCA all you need to know is that I attend the senior picnics (when available) and offer my photo services on-the-spot to graduating seniors at a super affordable price!
What's in it for You?
For starters, there is no session fee! I meet with interested seniors individually at the picnic and we'll do a mini-mini session that lasts less than 10 minutes. Then, within 2 weeks I provide an online gallery for each senior who had photos taken to choose the photos that they want to order. You will have the option to purchase prints, canvases, and digital images with printing rights - But you are never obligated to buy anything!
This is a completely risk-free opportunity, and if you decide to place an order you'll end up saving over half the price normally spent at my standard sessions!
This special savings is just for CCA grads only so don't miss out!
How Does Ordering Work?
After your online gallery goes live, you will have 10 days to place your order. Each student typically gets to choose from 4 or 5 images that have been lightly retouched, but not fully edited.
Ordered images are fully retouched and enhanced by hand in Photoshop by me. I take the time to hand-edit and perfect every portrait. No silly filters or gimmicky one-stop cheap tricks! My work is my pride and passion.
Everything is viewed, ordered, and paid online, so there are no paper order forms to keep up with. Grandparents and other relatives may also place orders through the digital gallery!
Purchases are made directly online via PayPal or any major credit card. Further information will be provided when the gallery goes live.
Your CCA instructor will notify you when the gallery has gone live.
Orders will be drop-shipped directly to you (or wherever you choose) within 10 days of your order.
Prints are delivered in uncut units, which means any size smaller than 8x10 will need to be cut apart with scissors.
What To Wear
Your clothing should reflect you! There’s no need to dress up, unless of course you want to. Just remember, you don’t want to look at your photos 20 years from now and say “what was I thinking?!” You’re also more than welcome to bring along your favorite hat, jewelry, sports items or any other prop that has meaning to you.
Layer Your Look
Add some pop to your photos by layering your clothing. Add a fun jacket, sweater or vest to maximize your outfit and style. Mix up your fabrics to give your photos some texture and depth. Mix in some silk with a cable knit sweater, or denim and chiffon, lace and canvas.
If you are choosing solid colors to wear for your session spice things up with a fun scarf, bold and bright jewelry, some flashy earrings, a hat, headband or flower in your hair. Remember that your session will be brief and mostly feature headshots.
Focus on accessorizing from the waist up.
Colors & Patterns
Mixing your colors and patterns is a great way to add interest to your photos, but be smart with your choices. You don't want your patterns overpowering your face. Stay away from clothing with large logos or emblems; you want your photos to be timeless. Bold colors photograph best. My personal preference is dark jewel-tones. There’s a color to flatter everyone!
Makeup & Complexion
Makeup helps, but I do retouch your photos so please don't be concerned about minor breakouts. I have you covered. Even if your acne is more severe you're still okay. I'm happy to help you out with some extra retouching. If you have light skin please make sure your makeup matches your skin tone. It's all fun and games until someone wears orange foundation. Please don't be that person.
What if i Miss the Picnic??
If you are unable to make it to the picnic for any reason I will give you a discount on one of my regular portrait sessions. In fact, any CCA 2018 senior is welcome to come and see me for a private session at 30% off if they book before June 2018!
Current rates good through April 2018: https://blueghost-studio.com/portrait-photography-investment/
Take a Moment...
Make a Memory!
After this year... Who knows what the future may hold? But right now, you’ve reached the top. And the best way to hold that moment is with a creative senior picture.
One that captures the true you... The essence of who you are right now!
We know you’ve worked hard to get this far and you deserve a portrait that’s special to you.
Let's create one that’s uniquely yours!
One last thing . . .
Your child's privacy is important to me!
I occasionally like to post a sneak peek on social media from my photo day at a particular school or add new photos to my website and marketing materials. If you would be willing to give me permission to include your child's photo for these purposes, please complete the following release form. Thank you so much!
