Seniors Portraits of Northern Virginia & Pittsburgh, PA
Senior Portraits of Northern Virginia
For some Senior photography is a treat - the cherry on top of a wonderful high school experience. For others its a necessity and a battle from start to finish.
What makes JLA Photos unique is that I truly believe there is NOT one size fits all. Of course we'll get the standards for the yearbook and Grandma, but I believe these photos are your Seniors first real opportunity to show the wold who they are and who they want to become. Photoshoots with me are more commercial and typically involve some planning, staging and LOTS of fun. We'll meeet to discuss wardrobe, styling and makeup plans, discuss any special set ups and really get to know your senior and what their personality is.
For those of you thinking this sounds like torture ~ perhaps a straight headshot session would be more your speed.
Some gals LOVE the idea of senior portraits, others groan. I grew up in a time when Sr. Photos weren’t half as cool as they are now. Oh I cringe at the idea of scanning mine just for giggles. That said, its still a bit tedious for some and honestly, I sooo hear you…LOUD and Clear!
As a woman's photographer, my goal is to make you see the beauty within you. We all have unique and wonderful attributes that we like about ourselves and sadly - we all have qualities we'd like to change. I listen. I love to work with you to create the session of your dreams. We will actually Skype or FaceTime to chat wardrobe, accessories and of course - makeup :)
That said – my goal is to capture YOU. Silly, crazy, unique and fun. To make You shine and capture this crazy busy, insane moment in time. I love when friends book together for extra laughs, I love when you bring in your prom dress and we go all high-fashion. Or perhaps…just perhaps, you're a little darker than your average bear. No worries. We’ll get some photos your parents can send to Grandma, but really, my goal is to make YOU happy. I love to play and I want to create images YOU will love.
Senior rates and packages are just the same as any other portrait session. No craziness to figure out. Pure & Simple. Just the way I like it! (that means $450 for the session fee & complete digital & print packages starting at $950)
Serving all counties in Northern VA including, but not limited to: Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax ,Fairfax City, Falls Church, Fauquier, Fredericksburg, Loudoun, Manassas City, Manassas Park, Prince, William, Spotsylvania, Stafford, and of course: the homeschoolers out there <3
Also serving Pittsburgh, PA. Specifically shooting at my home studio in Ligonier, PA.
Also - it should go without saying that senior portraits aren't JUST for high school seniors. I've had some of the best sessions of my life with 13 year olds. Times of transition sometimes call for a little extra love and understanding. Jenn specializes in Bat Mitzvah portraits and loves to work with a child's innocence and quiet determination as they grow into young adults. In a world full of beauty that sometimes makes us fell less so, Jenn strives on creating images that are range from mesmerizing to crazy fun all while paying particular attention to being on the conservative side of age appropriate.
