THE BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE YOUR SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION...Most seniors schedule their senior portrait sessions the summer and fall before their senior year. The earlier you book the better! I start booking the end of June and typically schedule though the end of October for outdoor sessions. It is not as hot in June and early July and the color is beautiful! I have limited availability for On Location Sessions so it is best to call early to schedule.

Each year more and more schools are allowing images from outside photographers to be sent in for use in the yearbook. Don't be fooled by a prearranged appointment postcard you may have received with wording that seems to say you cannot. There may be requirement such as “green in background”. Be sure to read the directions from your school and provide me with a printed copy of the information.

If you attend a public school below is the law for the state of Massachusetts
"The Department of the Attorney General has declared that public schools prohibiting students from using a nonofficial photographer to produce their senior portraits is in violation of the Massachusetts Antitrust Act, General Law Chapter 93, Section 4."

Some private schools may have different rules. Be sure to check with your school office directly.
If you are allowed to send your image to your high school to be included in your yearbook check on the due date and be sure to have the contact information email handy. Every school is different.

HOW TO SCHEDULE MY SESSION...You may either call me at the studio at 978.658.5557 or email me at There is also a Contact page on this website and you can send me your info there as well. Once we speak and determine which session best suits your needs, we will decide on the date and the optimal time of day for the best lighting.

WHAT YOUR SESSION WILL INCLUDE...Each Senior Session will include the photographers time and talent, image processing, a post session viewing and ordering appointment as well as the retouched image of your choice forwarded to your high school for use in your yearbook, if allowed. You must provide the correct contact information either by email or on a printed piece of paper the day of your session. Your image will not be guaranteed to be in your yearbook with out this information.

WHAT YOU SHOULD WEAR...You can of course wear whatever you feel comfortable in. I suggest a variety of colors and styles. Some of my favorites are neutrals such as white, cream, navy and grey. Avoid logos and strong patterns. Some bright reds can clash with the foliage. If you are having trouble deciding, feel free to bring one or two additional choices with you and I can recommend what I think will photograph best or provide you with the best variety.
Girls should wear the proper undergarments in both design and color. Watch for straps and shirts that are cut too low under your arms. Additional retouching will be needed to remove straps or color showing through. Iron your garments as well.
Boys…Be sure to iron your shirts and pants! Wrinkles do show and are also additional retouching to remove.
You may choose up to 3 wardrobe selections in both the "On Location" and "Traditional Senior Sessions" and 1 wardrobe selection for the "Simple Senior Session". 

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU HAVE TO RESCHEDULE...I am happy to reschedule for any reason, I just ask that you give me as much notice as possible. It is a really busy time of year and I typically book out 3-4 weeks in advance.

In the event of inclement weather, we will simply reschedule as close to your original session as possible. I will call you a day or two ahead of your appointment to confirm and we can discuss the weather situation at that time. I ask for you to wait until that time due to the weather changing on a dime around here! It is New England!
There is a $50 non-refundable deposit for On Location Sessions. You may reschedule your On Location Session within 14 days of the reserved date without the loss of your deposit. In the event of inclement weather we will reschedule and your deposit will be applied to your new session date.

IMAGES ON SOCIAL MEDIA...Once you complete your session and I receive permission from you I typically post a "Sneak Peek" image on social media if time allows. Once you place your portrait order and it is paid in full, I will post your senior portrait image as a bonus! You are welcome to share them where ever you would like. I simply ask you to share from my page on Facebook or include the hashtag #leannesstudioofphotography on Instagram. It is a great way for me to build my business!
