The Senior Experience

It's finally here- your SENIOR YEAR!!!! You have been eagerly waiting for this special time and it's finally your turn to shine!!! That's the goal when you book a Senior Session with me- for you and your personality to shine through in your gallery! I love getting to know my Seniors personalities and interests, and allowing that to inspire me to create gorgeous images unique to you! Senior sessions are one of my favorite things to photograph and I would love to work with you!

What to Expect:

Senior sessions usually last about 1-2 hours depending on if you choose 1 or 2 locations, and how many outfits you bring/how fast you can change! I offer a mix of very direct posing as well as fun prompts! But don't worry, I always tell you what to do with your hands, where to look, etc.! I have a very outgoing and upbeat personality so we definitely have lots of fun, too! Mom, dad, little sister, grandma, whomever, are all welcome to tag along for encouragement if you would like, too! After your session, you receive a full quality, high resolution gallery (about 150-200+ images) sent right to your email! From there you are able to download/print/share as you please!


The location you choose for your session should definitely represent YOU! Are you envisioning something more nature oriented like a pretty park or field? Would you prefer an urban and trendy spot instead? You are also allowed to choose two locations if they are within a short drive of each other (about 10 minutes or less). So maybe a little bit of both?! I also recommend considering what outfits you want to wear and if they fit the setting you want! If you don't have anything specific in mind- I have TONS of ideas and recommendations! I'd love to help!


This is definitely one of my favorite parts of planning your session!!! I absolutely recommend having 2-3 outfits picked out and ready to bring with you! I love how changing outfits brings so much variety and personality to your images! I would suggest having at least one more dressy outfit, and one more casual. My biggest advice, is to choose things that you are genuinely comfortable in. If you don't feel good in what you are wearing, it is likely to show up in your photos. I also tend to gravitate towards neutrals, and neutral pieces paired with fun pops of color or textures! Also take into consideration what location you would like, and what season your session is in. Please feel free to text me with photos of outfits and choices and I can help!!! That's what I'm here for!

Payment Information and Gallery:

All sessions require a $50 non refundable deposit to book your date, as well as a signed contract. Senior Sessions are $650, and the remaining balance is due in full at the time of your session. I accept cash, checks (payable to Emily Metcalf), Zelle (614-648-1994), or Venmo @heyemilymetcalf. You then receive your fully edited gallery within about 3-4 weeks of your session! Clients receive anywhere from 150-200+ images- woo hoo! I also give you color and black and white options! Anything I make black and white (which is just up to my creative discretion), I also give you the exact same image in color! Just because I like it in black and white, doesn't mean you do. So I make sure to offer my clients both options! You will receive your gallery via email where you are free to download/print/share as you please! Easy peasy!
