First of all, Congrats! You are getting ready to embark on the incredible adventure that is your (or your child's) Senior Year of high school! Second, Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by our website to check out how we can help make your senior year that much more unforgettable!
Now - before we begin, this is quite the long page, but it contains every bit of info that you need when choosing whether you want Brandon and I to do your senior portraits!
...but first things first...
What do you mean that you are only taking 60 clients this year?? Don't you usually take a few hundred???
While we have never actually done a FEW HUNDRED senior clients in a year, we are usually able to take around 150 portrait shoots per season.... so what changed?
I don't know if you heard, but things have been going pretty well for The Bartee's here as of late. In addition to photographing Eastern Local Schools, we have also picked up Southern Local Schools, Gateway Christian Education Center, and then smaller athletic gigs with Belpre and Wahama. All of this is in addition to multiple corporate and advertising jobs, as well as the busiest wedding season we have ever had by far! Oh - and don't forget about the FOUR incredible photography workshops that we have scheduled, and then a few more free classes that we offer to local high school students free of charge.
(Side Note. We are done taking new schools for next year, but we do have room in our schedule for 2 more athletic contracts! If you want us - talk to your school! If you are the school... then call me!)
All of this to say, we simply do not have time to as many senior clients as we used to.
That makes sense, I heard a rumor that you were doing so well with schools that you were going to stop taking seniors all together...
Let me stop you right there. First of all - Seniors and Weddings are our lifeblood. You literally couldn't pay us enough to never take another senior or wedding again! Even if we pick up 20 schools, we will still do our portrait sessions. I promise.
While we are on the topic of rumors... here are some other things that we are NOT true.
1.) We are NOT millionaires. (Far from it!)
2.) We are NOT moving out of the area next year.
3.) We are NOT having a baby
4.) Our sports photos are NOT done on green screen
5.) Brandon is NOT Batman... he is Ironman.
6.) Brandon is not actually Ironman either.
7.) But Rana IS in fact Wonder Woman
Now that we have that out of the way, lets get to the real purpose of this post.
This year, we have decided to take only 60 High School Senior Sessions, 20 of which are already filled.
While our success in other areas doesn't mean that we are done with Seniors, it does mean that we are able to take fewer and fewer of them each year, so if you have your heart set on working with us this year, then you should SCHEDULE YOUR CONSULTATION now to be sure that you get a good spot.
But aren't you guys like REALLY REALLY SUPER DUPER EXPENSIVE??
Speaking of rumors, this on is my favorite. Let's get this out of the way once and for all:
OUR PACKAGES DO NOT START AT $2000.
It is true that some people decided to spend a couple thousand once they see their photos, but that is THEIR CHOICE.
In reality, our packages start under $300 for our mini sessions, under $600 for our Standard Sessions, and under $800 for our signature sessions.
The first step to is to schedule a time to come in and meet with us so that we can go ALL of our pricing options with you, but in the mean time - I can tell you this.
We are more expensive than having your aunt who has a nice camera take your photos, but still probably less expensive than you are thinking.
Let's take a quick break to look at some of our favorite seniors from last year! See you after the gallery!
So how do I get more info and/or Schedule my session?
Super Easy! Just fill out this quick form and one of us will be in touch within the next 2 business days! Talk to you soon!
