* Don’t I have to use the School’s contracted photographer ?
The answer is yes AND NO.
If you want your head shot to be included in the yearbook, then YES you will need to have your traditional mug shot done with the schools contract photographer. The yearbook needs all the mug shots to be the same, size/cropping/color/background…. so having your mug shots done with the contract photographer provides that consistency which makes it easy to print a yearbook and make all those thousands of students look the same. ( Thousands of photos all the same ??? Yawn ….. )
The good news is that you don’t have to settle for “the same” ! Get your mug shot done for the annual at the contract photographer then come to us for an amazing personalized session ! We give all our seniors the Rock Star treatment so you know your senior photos will be awesome and unique !
* “But the contract photographer says I HAVE TO use them 🙁 “ Actually this is genius marketing. Technically its true since your mugshots must be taken by them to be in the annual. BUT what they don’t tell you is that you can use any photographer you like for your personalized senior photos!
* “Why doesn’t Miller Photography become our schools contract photographer?“ This is a great question and one we agonized over for about a year and a half. Finally we decided that shooting every student in a school the same way doesn’t fit our business model. We want all our seniors to feel special and have one of a kind images that make them feel amazing every time they see them. This takes time and a personal connection to our clients that you just can’t achieve when you only have seconds to photograph each student.
“ I wish we could use Miller Photography pictures in the Annual “ Many of our senior’s parents opt to take out an ad in the yearbook using Miller Photography senior images. Miller Photography can custom design an amazing ad that fits all the yearbook specs for you! Digital files for yearbook use are also available for purchase if you opt to go that route. Please contact us for details as each yearbook has very specific formats.
—–> Note, national trends are moving toward allowing Seniors to submit their custom photographs to the annual. A few markets have done this successfully with excellent results producing happy students and parents. There is a learning curve to deal with and some technology issues to be worked out on the publishing side before it is widely adopted, but it is the trend of the future 🙂
“ I graduate next month, is it too late to get my senior portraits done at Miller Photography ?“ Its Never too late! Senior photos are more than just a picture to stick in the annual. They are meant to be a snap shot of an amazing time in your life, AND amazing photos of YOU! We have even had come clients come to us AFTER they graduated to have a Miller Photography senior session because they loved our style and wanted amazing wall art for their home. This goes for College seniors as well !
“I graduate in two weeks, Can I still get senior photos, Invitations, Announcements, and Prints before I graduate ?” Ok, I had to post this one since somebody calls last minute every year….. The answer is….. Probably not, unless you are willing to pay rush charges across the board for everything and we have a session available. We are amazing, and the labs we use are amazing, but we still need time to make the magic happen and leave time for shipping. You can ( and should ) still get your senior photos taken, but having everything back before graduation is sketchy.
“Will my photos look like other Seniors in my class?” Nope. We want your senior photos to be a reflection of YOU ! To show your unique interests and personality. All our Seniors fill out a questionaire about their interests and style so we can tailor your session to YOUR personal style.
I hope this Q&A answered your questions. If not, Please call Shelly at the studio 931-668-1969 or shoot me an email at Studio@millerseniorphotography.com
Thanks! David & Shelly Miller
