When is the best time to make an appointment?
We only accept 50 high school senior clients each year, so book now! Appointments are scheduled on a first come first serve basis, the sooner you book, the better.
How do I book my photo session?
You can contact Tyler R. Brown Photography through the contact page or by calling our studio at 469.277.2246 to discuss potential session dates and your photography needs. Payment for the session fee is due in full to hold your date. You can pay online with a major credit card or mail a check to our studio.
Where will my session take place?
We photograph in our studio and on location. On-location shooting is up to you! If you are unsure of a location but have a specific look in mind, we can certainly make some recommendations. Some locations require a fee, in those cases; the client is responsible for said fees. We’ll talk through this during your free pre-session consultation. If you have an idea, mention it! After all, this is all about YOU!
How long will my photo session last?
The length of your photo session will vary based on the session type you select. We offer sessions that can last from 1½ hours to a full day.
How long before I see the pictures from my shoot?
On average, your images are ready 2-3 weeks after your session.
How will my pictures be presented?
After your session has been booked, we will schedule a time for you (and the decision-makers; aka mom & dad) to come to our studio to view all of your images. This viewing session is also the time that you will make decisions about what prints and products you would like to order.
My school recommends using another studio. Do I have to use them?
No. You’re a senior, YOU get to pick a photographer that you like!
Will you retouch my photographs?
Yes, Tyler R. Brown Photography does extensive retouching and applies artistic effects to every image that is shown during your preview session. If you see something that you don’t like during your viewing session, let us know and it will be fixed before any orders are placed.
What if I get sick or have an emergency and can’t make my session?
We ask that you attempt to reschedule at least 24 hours in advance but understand that some situations will not allow for 24 hour notice. Session fees are non-refundable but may be applied to a future session should you need to reschedule.
What if the weather looks sketchy for my outdoor on-location session?
Outdoor sessions always depend on the weather. We are at the mercy of Mother Nature! Tyler R. Brown Photography monitors the weather and will make the decision as to whether we shoot or not. Assume the session is on unless you hear from us. And remember, some of our best photographs happen in the rain!
What if my complexion isn’t perfect on the day of my session?
Not to worry! Almost everyone has days with less than perfect skin. Our process is to remove such blemishes from images before you see the final product! Don’t sweat it!
Can I bring a friend or my mom or dad to my photo shoot?
Definitely! We actually require that someone accompanies all of our clients during their session. It’s another set of eyes to ensure that you look your best in each photograph. Oh, and if you bring a friend, we’ll let them jump in a few of your pictures! We strongly recommend that you not bring your boyfriend/girlfriend to your shoot. They tend to be a distraction and prevent you from being yourself.
What should I bring to my photo shoot?
Upon booking with Tyler R. Brown Photography, we will send you a document with tips and a list of suggested things you should bring.
Do you limit the number of outfits I can bring to my photo session?
No. In fact, we’d prefer that you bring too many! This will give us more options to coordinate with various backgrounds. We may not use all of the outfits you bring, but it’s better to have them, instead of walking away saying “I wish I had that one outfit”. And remember accessorize...hats, scarves, jewelry and shoes!
My friend/relative has a nice camera. Can’t I have them take my senior pictures?
Well, you could…but I can pretty much guarantee you won’t be happy with the results. It takes much more than having a nice camera to be a good photographer. After all, buying a sweet guitar doesn’t make you a rock star! It takes the combination of our photography training, knowledge of proper portrait lighting, and post-production editing, to make you look your best. My camera, lenses, strobes, and additional equipment are high-end, professional-grade tools.
I have a question that was not covered here.
