I want to make this process fun because life is too short to be serious all the time. I know how much you love to laugh, and I do too, so let's go on this adventure together!
I have been where you are now, and wow, high school is a crazy season! The highs and lows, the demanding schedule of school, sports, homework, etc. BUT... it is also, the amazing memories made with friends: taking road trips or spending a day at the lake!
I love taking senior photos, because I remember all of the big decisions I was making and that you are about to make. I remember the feelings of not being sure of what I wanted, yet at the same time, thinking that no-one could change my mind. I remember the struggles of doubt, insecurity, & comparison. I don’t want that for you. My number one priority as your senior photographer is to capture the real you and your excitement for this season of your life! I want to help you know you’re beautiful, because you are!
After you fill out my contact form, you'll receive an email to schedule a phone call with me. This is our initial consultation. During this phone call, we'll start by getting to know each other a little bit. I want to know all about who you are and what the vision for your senior session is, so that I can make sure that I am a good fit to provide the best possible senior portrait experience for you. We will also go into more detail about my process, pricing, and any questions you may have. At the end of the consultation you will be able to book your session. Once the contract is signed and the payment is made, we will move on to planning your session!
After you are booked, you will receive an exclusive BJP Senior Style Guide. This will help you pick and plan the outfits for your senior photos. Picking categories of outfits (preppy, causal, etc.) is one of my favorite tips to give! During this process, I am also available to come to your home to help you choose outfits - my complimentary gift to you if you choose to use it. You will also receive a vendor list to help you book: hair, make up, and nail appointments with some of the best around Billings! We will discuss locations of your shoot during this part as well. As we get closer to your session, I will also send you a Senior Questionnaire. This dives deeper into helping me get to know you and what you are looking forward to during your photography session! Then, before your know it, your shoot day is here!
The big day has arrived! YAY!! Your hair and make up are done, your outfits are chosen, and we are ready to go! [You look amazing BTW :) !!] Before we dive into shooting, we'll catch up a little bit and then we will talk about your outfits and the locations and we will work together to plan which outfit at which location, so that you look and feel your absolute best. I will hype you up and we will laugh and chat the whole time. It seriously is so much! At the end of your session, we will wrap up by chatting about your Premiere Ordering Session.
No sooner than 2 weeks after your shoot, we will meet at my house. This is where you will get to see your images for the first time! First, we'll take a little time to discuss what kind of products you are wanting for your home. Then, we will watch a slideshow of all YOUR images. So exciting! This is where it really gets good, we will start to narrow down to your absolute favorites and decide which images are going on your walls, in an album, or that are going as gifts to family and friends.
It is important that all decision makers are present at this appointment as your order will be placed that evening.
When your products are ready, we find a time that will work for both of us and I will deliver them to you!! HECK YEAH! You get to see your senior photos printed out and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home! This may be the best part (after the actual shoot, of course)! I will typically take a short video of you opening your products and getting your reactions! I may even grab a quick video testimonial of what you thought about your experience with me, if you feel comfortable with that. I also send an email requesting your feedback because I always want to be growing and so that I can make sure that this experience is the best it can be!
Isn't it true that when we have our photos taken we always mean to print the images out (me included)? We have the best intentions, but time and life just seem to get in the way and our images end up sitting on a flash drive in our desk drawer or we download them to our computer never to be seen again. We invested for that season of life to be captured, but what do we really have to show for it? As a photographer, it is my job to make sure that your investment of time and money doesn't go to waste. Let's show those beautiful photos off, shall we?!?!
In order to reserve a date with me, 100% of your session fee is due up front as a non-refundable retainer along with the signed contract. All paperwork and payments can be done online for your convenience! After we book and have your photography session, then we will also book an in-person consultation at my home to choose your favorites!
Of course! Your senior session with me includes photos with whoever is important to you! This can be your boyfriend/girlfriend, best friend, parent, sibling or even a pet! They are more than welcome to join us for the last 15 minutes of your senior session.
I am more than willing to travel for senior sessions! I actually love it when my clients ask me to photograph them in a location that means something special to them or is just fun! I book senior sessions at least two months in advance and 25 miles of travel are included with the session fee. Ask me about my easy, flat rate travel fees for my favorite MT locations!
Hair and makeup are not included in my senior photography packages, however, I highly recommend booking an appointment prior to your session! Upon booking your session with me, you will receive an informational email with everything you need to know about your senior experience.
Two hour portrait session
Up to 3 outfit changes
I strive to make your senior portrait session as effortless & enjoyable as possible from the moment you reach out to the final delivery of your custom products! I typically schedule senior sessions 1-2 months in advance. Spots do fill quickly! To ensure the session date you want, the earlier the better!
“Bri did a great job at catching moments where I felt like myself, it sounds strange, but in all the photos that she took I look like I’m being myself and not “posing” which I love. I also could seriously see her light up while taking photos. I love how passionate she is. Bri was so encouraging and empowering. She can catch those special moments of confidence in your photos and that paired with her eye for the editing makes these pictures my favorite pictures of myself!”
“Bri is so good at encouragement and listening! She made me feel so pretty in my pictures and listened to all my requests AND everything I shared with her. She was more of my friend than my photographer! I loved that she made me a personal playlist and we were jamming out to my favorite music and she formed a relationship with me before our session so I felt more comfortable being around her and being myself!! She’s just the best at capturing the candid moments! She took some really sweet pictures when I didn't even know you were paying attention! And those are some of my favorites!”
"Bri is such a sweet person who is very talented at what she does! She took the time to get to know me, and it was a really fun experience. Sometimes it feels awkward when you’re posing for someone when they’re taking your picture, but I felt the complete opposite when Bri was taking my pictures! She will direct you, so you do not have to be an experienced model by any means. I 10/10 recommend reaching out to her, you won’t regret it! And, you’ll get some super cool pictures done!"
“Bri is definitely the best at boosting confidence! After our session I felt amazing and beautiful! And definitely her editing skills and capturing the best photos! I enjoyed literally every second, even in the cold! She was just so bubbly and made the session amazing and I felt like even if I had no clue what poses I needed to do she’s help show it :) Bri is best at definitely making everyone feel comfortable! She knew what poses for me to do and made the vibe of it amazing and fun!”
