The High School Senior Portraits of Your Dreams!

High school graduation is a great milestone to celebrate!

Since you’re about to celebrate your graduation from high school or represent someone who is, it’s a wonderful opportunity to get some fantastic portraits made, and I’d love to be the photographer who provides them.

I want you to have graduation photos that are true and authentic to who you are. I want you to have the graduation portraits you deserve and will cherish for years to come.

These are YOUR High School Senior Portraits

This is a special moment in your life and these are your photos. I want them to be what you want and represent who you are. I’m only interested in meeting YOUR wants and needs because these are YOUR photos.

For parents that might be reading this page, I want to make sure your student gets the photos THEY want and want to hear THEIR creative ideas and input.

I’ll make sure the graduation portrait session is 100% stress-free so that you can relax and enjoy all the aspects of the shoot.

Now if you’re looking for someone who’s going to be rigid and do things with a cookie-cutter approach or an approach that doesn’t take into account the wants and needs of the upcoming high school graduation, then I’m not the right fit for you.

I like to do things a bit differently, and I love working with those who enjoy the same!

High School Senior Portrait Session Process and Information

First and foremost, I want you to read this entire page to take in all the details and information I have regarding high school portrait sessions. I also want you to take a look at the galleries from the many graduation and senior portrait sessions I’ve photographed in the past.

This will help you decide if I’m what you are looking for when it comes to a senior portrait photographer.

If and when that is done, the process to inquire about choosing DSmithImages Photography as your senior portrait photographer begins with a simple contact form. That helps me get some information about you and what you’re looking for in terms of a graduation portrait session.

You can use the form just below or visit my contact page to get the process started.

I’ll then send you a customized message as soon as possible with all sorts of helpful information about the type of senior portrait session I can offer you.

This information will include detailed pricing information for the type of session you want. All senior portrait sessions are custom-priced, so that’s why it’s incredibly important to send that first message. I want to let you know what I can best do for you to help meet your wants and needs. Do note that all senior portrait sessions are priced with no time limit in mind.

All senior portrait sessions are different, and I don’t ever want to have a pre-determined price come between me and interested students. I will give you the best possible price based on the details you provide and will try my best to work with your budget considerations.

If we all feel that this is going to be a perfect fit, we’ll then schedule a consultation over the phone or Zoom. That is where we’ll go over all sorts of creative and specific details regarding your session. It’s also a great opportunity to ask questions and get to know each other better.

To book your session, a signed agreement + a retainer of, typically, 1/2 of the package price would be required. The final payment would be due the day of the session.

Once the agreement and retainer are handled, I’ll happily put your date on the calendar and brag about the upcoming session. We’ll then be in regular communication leading up to your shoot as we talk about more creative ideas, scheduling, and coordination details.

High School Senior Portrait Session Availability

As we approach the day of the senior portrait session, I’ll be in touch to coordinate the timeline, get your creative input, and determine stylistic choices for the shoot.

I definitely want to hear all the input your upcoming graduate has because it’s their senior portrait session!

I like to photograph portrait sessions in the early morning just before or after sunrise or in the afternoon/evening, close to sunset.

Do also note that I limit myself to two portrait sessions a day to ensure every student who books with me gets the proper attention they deserve.

I’m proud to say the Birmingham, Alabama area is home and has been home all my life! I’m also proud to say that I love to travel, and I have a general range of a 250-mile radius for senior portrait sessions.

That’s why I’d be delighted to set up a high school graduation portrait session anywhere in the Birmingham, Alabama metro area or throughout Alabama and the surrounding states!

Whether you’d like to do something in downtown Birmingham, one of the over-the-mountain communities such as Vestavia, Mountain Brook, Homewood, or Hoover, or places like Trussville, Pinson, Clay-Chalkville, or really any other location in the area, I’d be happy to work with you there!

I’m also available for high school senior portrait sessions throughout Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Mississippi in places like Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, Atlanta, Nashville, Chattanooga, Tupelo, and many more.

High School Senior Portrait Photography Package

No matter the size and scope of the session, all my students receive a session with no time limit attached. I don’t want to be constrained by a time limit when shooting your session.

Once the session is complete, your photos will be delivered to you in a private password-protected gallery. That is where you’ll be able to download the photos in high-resolution format, which means full print quality with full print rights. They are also going to be delivered in “out-of-the-camera” format, which is just edited for cropping and exposure, along with two different edited color versions and a black-and-white version.

You’ll also receive a print and product credit to spend on physical prints so you can get a jump start on having some great keepsakes from your session.

All sessions also receive lighting quick turn-around times on your photos. You are not going to be waiting weeks and months to enjoy your photos. I guarantee that.

I also offer coordination services and assistance for all sessions. If you need creative or logistical help with something, I’m happy to assist.

All travel considerations will be included in the final price, so you will be hit with any additional charges. I travel all over the United States, and I’m happy to do so for your graduation session.

Please inquire directly for a personalized quote based on the date, location, and specifics of your shoot.

“David recently photographed our teen for their senior portraits, and I highly recommend him. He understood our unique requests. He was efficient but took the time to help put any nerves at ease, making our teen look their best, natural self in front of the camera. He captured not only their personality in the pictures but also the natural light and chosen background in such a beautiful way. We look forward to using him again when our next teen becomes a senior. Highly recommend him for senior portraits.”
