Easter Minis

We had a great turnout last week for Easter Mini sessions!  SO much fun!

To start with, we tested the setup with our favorite models, Rhiannon and Huckleberry.  So here are a few fun shots from those tests!


 For the set design, Meg Walck sourced and put things together, while Tim worked the light & camera.

We'd like to say a big thank you to Amy Burrous, owner of  Always In Bloom for letting us borrow her chalk board!

From the sessions, our packages included our prints, which are of the highest quality.  We calibrate our monitors to match the lab's color profile, then we select Kodak Endura Metallic paper, which we love for its remarkably beautiful shine and replication of colors.

Can't wait for all the prints to come in!

What REALLY Happens Behind the Scenes

Recently we updated our website with a few "behind the scenes" images to show off a few things that happen during a photoshoot that you may not think about... lights/other family members acting silly/pets being ...pets...  children being... children...  -  you get the idea.

But there is yet another aspect behind the scenes at a portrait studio that many people don't think much about.  What do photographers do BEFORE the session?  OH and another!  What do photographers do AFTER the session?

WELL.  Let me show you!

We've been doing this long enough that we know its best to have a checklist.  In the industry we call this a Workflow.  This ensures that we don't miss any step in the process, which means our customer service level will be high and consistent.

I guess I could end with that and let you read the things on our workflow sheet... but where is the fun in that?  Lets see some pictures!

BATTERIES.  Every flipping thing in the world seems to take batteries.  LOTS…

4 Steps to a Successful Senior Portrait Session

In many professional photography circles, the question about how to have a successful senior portrait session always seems to come up.  Well, at Walck Portraits, we've found that it's quite easy.  In fact, we've laid it out in a step-by-step list.
Step One:  Find Some Awesome Seniors to Participate in a Senior Modeling ProgramIn January, we start looking for seniors to participate in our senior modeling program.  It's easy:  they come in for a planning session, have their portraits taken, and then they are given our senior representative cards.  For every person that books a session from their representative cards, the seniors earn $100 in print credit.

Step Two:  Have Fun Taking Beautiful Images that They (and their moms) Love
Step Three:  Schedule & Shoot Their Summer/Fall (Traditionally-Timed) Senior Session
Step Four:  Show Off Their Unique Styles & Personalities

The Struggle with Senior Portraits Posing for Guys

If you search Pinterest for senior photos, overwhelmingly, girls show up.  Tons and tons of examples of beautiful senior girls in flowery fields, on the town, in a stream.  There are a few exceptions (and some really great ones) for guys, but it made me stop and think about the struggle with taking senior photos of boys.  Sure, many of them aren't really into it, but rather having photos done because mom said so.  Many aren't used to having such undivided and direct attention showered their way.  Also, the teenage years can be awkward for boys.  Where do you put your hands?  How do you look like you're not enjoying it too much?  What if you're not into sports?  The struggle is real...but fixable.

Here are oursome of our best senior portraits and tips for making them feel comfortable:
