“Woah Amanda… isn’t it a little early to book my senior pics?” HECK NO! And let me tell you why (hint…there’s perks to booking early)!

We usually book out about 3-6 months in advance. Yes… THAT EARLY! WHY?!? Because we like to prepare for your senior session in advance so that it isn’t a hurried thrown together mess the day of your session. So that means if you want a Spring session, the Fall before is the time to book! 

Here’s a few reasons why booking early is the best choice:

#1. You actually get a BETTER CHOICE OF DATES when you book early! Think about it… the entire calendar of our available dates is at your disposal! Pick your fave season and then book a date! It’s yours!

#2.  Booking early means you get MORE PREP TIME for senior session perfection! You don’t want this to be a rushed event in your life… take your time, prep for any last minute needs, and have the session of a lifetime!

#3.  Booking your date early in your senior year means that if any RESCHEDULES need to happen due to rain, or pandemic closures, etc, there will still be plenty of dates to choose from for your senior session. No need to panic!

We also want YOU to have as much input as possible so that your senior session is incredibly customized to your personality, inspiration, and vision. Let us walk you through what that entails:

#4. We also hold your fashion consult 2-4 weeks before your session so that you have time to pick up any last minute pieces needed to complete your perfect looks! 

#5. We also want to give you plenty of time to schedule your hair and nail appointments for that pre-session day mani/pedi and highlight application or root touch up! 

And guess what? We also want YOU to have as much input as possible so that your senior session is incredibly customized to your personality, inspiration, and vision. Let us walk you through what that entails:

#6. Pinterest Planning: we want YOUR input when it comes to your session and that means you get to start a Pinterest board full of ideas for your senior pics! Pin colors, poses, location, hair, makeup and outfit ideas to help us shape your senior session to the way you want it!

#7. Fashion Consult: this happens 4-6 weeks from your session and you’ll leave knowing exactly what you’re wearing at every single location and what accessories you’ll be pairing your outfit with too!

#8. Hair & Makeup Planning: you’ll also know what your makeup and hair will look like long before your session day! This will help take off session day stress so it will be easy breezy!

THAT is why booking with AHP EARLY is so very important! A lot goes into creating a custom senior portrait session and we love to plan it out well in advance. So why not connect with us TODAY to get started on your custom senior portrait session with AHP!?!
