High School senior

Choose vjmStudios for your senior photos!

Whether it’s at our fully equipped studio, downtown State College, or anywhere around the Centre Region, we’ll create photos that capture your personality and style. When you call or stop by the studio to book your date, we’ll ask you some questions to help us in planning your senior portrait session – do you have a favorite hobby, sport, car or pet?  Are you a musician or a dancer? Bring along the clothing and items that are meaningful to you!

What should you wear?  The simple answer is wear what makes you feel good. We usually tell people to avoid busy patterns and clothing with logos, but we’ve had some seniors break those “rules” with amazing results! From jeans and t-shirts to dresses and suits, wear what makes you feel most like yourself!

Studio sessions can be scheduled at any time of day, however the best time for outdoor sessions is in the early morning or late afternoon/early evening. We offer weekday sessions throughout the summer and fall, and have occasional openings on the weekends –  contact us for availability.

All of our senior photo packages include:

  • Pre-shoot consultation and post-shoot ordering session
  • Online gallery – viewable on phones, tablets, and computers
  • Fully retouched yearbook photo submitted directly to your school
  • Low-resolution digital files for social media
  • Retouching on all print and high-resolution digital file orders
  • Your choice of high-resolution digital files, prints, or both

There is a $75 non-refundable deposit to reserve your session. If we have to postpone due to the weather, we’ll reschedule for another day as soon as possible (usually within one week). The final balance is due on the day of your session.

After your session, we’ll do a basic edit on your images and upload them to your online proofing gallery, usually within 5-7 days of your session. You will be able to download all the images as low-resolution digital files for sharing on social media, and you can then select the images you want for prints, high-resolution digital files, and other photo merchandise. We can also schedule a free image viewing and ordering consultation at our studio, where we can answer any questions you may have.
