Carey- Senior 2010 - Hays Kansas Senior Photographer

"He really doesn't want to have his pictures taken.....these are really for me," Carey's mom told me when we schedule his session. Although that was the case, I think we got along just fine!

One thing I really like about these pictures is they really showcase Carey's interests...which is what senior pictures should be all about!

Catlyn - 2010 Senior

"Give me some attitude," I said. "Like this?" she asked.

Ummm perfect! Gotta love a senior who can give attitude for pictures, but is super nice and fun to be around!

I had a great time with Catlyn this past week, and enjoyed getting to know her, even if just for an hour! I wish you the best of luck with your future plans, and hope you have a great senior year!

Senior Photography FAQ - Kansas Senior Portrait Photographer

With the upcoming senior portrait season, I thought maybe it would be helpful to post a list of frequently asked questions I've received over the past few years!

Frequently Asked Questions About Senior Portraits

Q. How does a typical session go?

A. Overall, most sessions have some similarities, but no 2 are ever the same! Before your session, you will need to do a bit of homework. (I know, I know…and you thought you wouldn’t have to do any homework!) Depending upon which session you choose, you will need to plan out locations. It can be a park, your favorite section of downtown, on your parents’ farm…it’s up to you. Another thing to consider will be your clothing choices.
When we meet for the session, we will spend a few minutes getting to know each other. The first 10 minutes of shooting are usually somewhat of a “warmup”, when we get accustomed to each other. From there we will move around the locations, changing outfits as needed.

Q. What happens when the session is over?

A. After your session, I will spend some time doing basic editing (color correction, cropping, etc) to your images. 3-4 of your images will be selected within 2-3 days after your session and will be posted on my blog as a Sneak Peek. After this, you can expect your gallery to be online for ordering within 1-2 weeks, and if you ordered a proof book, 2-3 weeks.

Q. What if I wake up on the morning of my session and have a giant zit on my forehead?

A. No problem! I will remove major blemishes from all ordered prints. For extensive acne/retouching, a fee may be charged.

Q. I really want to bring my dog/horse/motorcycle/insert your favorite item here/ to my session. Is this okay?

A. Sure is! Your senior pictures are all about you, so if it helps define who you are, bring it on!

Q. What kind of clothing should I wear?

A. The number of outfit changes you have will depend on which session you choose, but in general the simpler the better. Always choose solid colors over clothing with large graphics. Jeans and a nice top provide a simple, casual look, which is desired by a majority of seniors. Make sure your clothing fits well, i.e. not too loose or too tight, and is flattering. Shirts with sleeves typically look better than sleeveless, although the ultimate choice is up to you. For the ladies, try to be aware of revealing clothing-if you are wearing a shirt that is revealing, I will say something to make sure you are aware, and we will take steps to make sure you are not revealing too much!

Q. What if the day of session is cloudy? Should we reschedule?

A. NO WAY! Cloudy days make for EXCELLENT portraits!

Q. What should I look for when picking a location?

A. Look for somewhere with numerous small areas of interest. Some great portraits have been created in grungy alleys or by incorporating rundown buildings. Look for good textures and fun color. It is also helpful to choose a place that will have shade.

Q. What all can we do with my pictures?

A. We can create a custom coffee table book, a brag book, a custom collage, a gorgeous canvas, customized graduation announcements…let me know what you have in mind!

Q. After I order pictures, how long does it take to get them?

A. For portraits, Allow 3-4 weeks for turnaround time. For specialty items (canvases, albums, etc) allow 6-8 weeks.

Q. When do I need to pay for my session and portraits?

A. Your session fee is due at the time of booking, and any portrait orders are due upon ordering. For your convenience, credit/debit cards are accepted via PayPal. Sales tax will be charged on all orders.

Q. Do you charge mileage?

A. As I am based out of Hays, KS and Abilene, KS, no mileage will be charged within Ellis or Dickinson Counties.

Q. What packages do you have?

A. The sessions I offer are:
Senior Basic Session Fee: $100 (up to 1 1/2 hours, 2 outfit changes)
Senior Enhanced Session Fee: $150 (up to 3 hours, 4 outfit changes)
Senior Ultimate Session Fee: $250 (up to 5 hours, 8 outfit changes)
I also offer a few basic portrait packages that will be listed on my website under the Senior Information Page.

Q. How many locations can I use?

A. We can go to as many locations as you like, but keep in mind that each session has a time limit, so plan accordingly.

Hopefully this will help clear up any uncertainties you might have. If you have a question not covered here or need clarification, don't hesitate to contact me!

Searching for Seniors.....

...and by seniors, I mean the high school kind, not the senior citizen kind. You know what I mean!!

Do you know a 2010 high school senior that is outgoing, fun and would enjoy promoting some fabulous senior photography? Or maybe YOU are that senior? I am on the hunt for some fun and fabulous seniors to be my representatives for 09-10. These delightful individuals will receive a half price session, 20% off prints and 48 free (you heard right...FREE!!) personalized wallet cards to hand out.
Ideally I would love to have a guy and gal from each high school. If you or someone you know would be interested, have them shoot me an email - kathryn@everydayyou.com.

A few 09 Seniors....


...and Charlie!


Sunday, November 16, 2008



It was cold and nasty out during this photo shoot, but Charlie was a trooper and we got through it with her good sense of humor. Even when I drug her down a freezing alley that was little more than a sunless wind tunnel, we were laughing (although we couldn't feel our fingers, but hey, I digress).

Best wishes to you Charlie! I know your strength, intelligence and sense of humor will get you through whatever life throws your way...and congrats on being a senior!

Steph and her 4-legged friends

First of all, let me apologize for not being a faithful blogger. Please don't flog me. I promise I'll try to do better in the future.

Phew, glad I got that out of the way! Because I have some pictures of a gorgeous senior to share!! I have known Steph and her mother, Susan, for many, many moons...way back to horse show days. So it was a bit of a pleasant surprise when I heard from them and was asked to shoot her senior pictures! It was an enjoyable afternoon as the wind wasn't gusting 300,000,000 miles/hour where we were (thank goodness!).

Here are a few sneak peeks of Steph's pictures!

Does she not have the most intense eyes ever?

Let me tell you, this was one of the sweetest dogs ever!

We had the campers at the campground next door entertained by our efforts to get ears up, no doubt.
