Hey there! Thanks for stopping by the blog today. My name is Catie and I’m a high school senior portrait photographer in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex serving Prosper High School, Frisco High Schools, McKinney High Schools and beyond.
With summer here, and senior year so close you can taste it, it’s time to start thinking about your senior pictures, if you haven’t already. I know some of you have been dreaming about your shoot since freshman year, while others out there, this may be the first time you’re thinking about it. No problem!
Senior Portrait Packages with Catie Ronquillo Photography
The Senior Experience has a booking fee of $225 which includes:
- Complimentary pre-session consultation
- Professional Hair & Makeup Artistry
- Up to 2 locations
- Time & Talent
- In-Person Portrait Reveal
The booking fee is due to reserve your session date and does not include any digital images, prints, or products. Print packages start at $675 and the average client spends between $1200-$1500.
Do you have different session options?
Senior year can be a crazy time. It will pass in the blink of an eye. You’re going to be booked up and making all kinds of decisions. In order to make things easy for you, I offer one session option with one booking fee.
It includes everything you’ll need, including a complimentary pre-session consultation (where we plan your shoot), professional hair & makeup (so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself), two locations (if you’re wanting some variety), time & talent (that’s my artistry), and your in-person portrait reveal (where you get to view your photos and choose your products).
Why should we hire a professional photographer?
I remember having a conversation with a friend who had “a friend” take her daughter’s senior portraits. The photos were “fine” but I could hear the subtle sounds of regret in her voice. She wished the photographer could have coached her better with posing, or known what locations would look best, or who to call for hair and makeup.
And then I had a conversation with the recent graduate about her senior pictures. She told me point blank, “We should have hired you. We should have gone with a professional, not my mom’s friend with a camera” While she didn’t have any major complaints about the photos, she couldn’t help but feel a tinge of disappointment in them.
When you choose a professional photographer, they have experience, happy clients to recommend them, and takes the time to understand what you want and how to achieve it. I strive to provide you with the best service, walk beside you through each decision, from booking to product ordering. My seniors and their parents walk away happy, with photos they will always treasure, and they know that my clients are my top priority!
Why is an investment in senior portraits worthwhile?
What makes a senior portrait session with Catie Ronquillo Photography special?
I believe that every senior has a story to tell and that every story matters. You’re important. You matter. You should be celebrated. In a generation of selfies and Snapchat, it’s hard to find your authentic self. I strive to give each senior an amazing experience, one where they feel and see their authentic selves, one that they will remember as a highlight of senior year.
My hope is to get to know you and your family. I love hearing about your goals and dreams and supporting them. I want to know where you dream of going to college or where in the world you’d love to travel. This is why I only take a limited number of clients a year. I take the time to get to know you, cheer you on, and follow your journey beyond high school. You’re not just another number.
