What makes our studio different for High School Seniors…{Northern Virginia High School Senior Photographer}

We think it was time to actually put it all down…when exploring your options for your Senior Portraits, you might wonder what makes each studio different?  Here are a few things you’ll have when you use Patty Schuchman Seniors for your senior photos.

  • We  specialize in high school seniors – from the backdrops, sets, lighting techniques, & posing to the products offered, our studio focuses on high school seniors as primary specialty.
  • Our newly enhanced indoor studio space is designed for your comfort during your session- from the full bathroom with walk in shower just in case you want to change your hair completely and need to start from scratch, to the ultimate changing room with all the little details available – from safety pins to a phone charging cable for all the popular phone types, to the fully stocked refrigerator with all the popular beverage choices to keep you comfortable.  (and yes, we carry a special kit of emergency items with us outdoors too – so if you need something during your session like a safety pin, just ask!)
  • Our outdoor “Portrait Park” – with over 20 acres in rural Round Hill, Virginia.  We have planned “sets” and natural landscapes. Beautifully landscaped areas and portrait vistas that make gorgeous scenic backdrops for your images.  And we are always adding and changing the spaces up so it’s always fresh and new… NO ONE offers an outdoor space like ours.  It’s so convenient to have it all in one place – that means ONE session time for you, which means less hassle for YOUR schedule too.
  • Want to see the studio and grounds before your session?  Arrange a meet and greet time and we can go over anything you need to ask, and plan a session that you’ll love.  We’d be happy to show you what we have to offer so you can get the exact session you want.
  • We offer reasonable session fees without any minimum print orders.  We’ll let you decide after your session what you love and what you want…and you won’t have to commit to any of that before the session even takes place.
  • You’ll have multiple options for your session – choose from 6 different session types for exactly what you want.  We can help you decide which session is right for you, and what will work for what you would like to have from your session too.
  • We even offer FREE yearbook only sessions for those folks who need last minute help getting into the yearbook, or just didn’t like the options presented by the school’s contracted photographer.  We stock all sizes of tuxes and formal shirts, and black and navy blue drapes for girls.  If your school accepts these images from us, we’ll deliver the images directly to your yearbook advisor and you will be all set for your yearbook photo.
  • All the paperwork to reserve your session time is online, so it’s easy to plan your session anytime, anywhere.
  • We book sessions every day of the week, just about every day of the year.  We have preferred times for certain session types, but we’ll be happy to assist with any preferred session time you request whenever possible.  (We are full time professional photography studio, so we are almost always open – just by appointment only to be sure we are prepared.)
  • We’ll send you a welcome packet after your session is booked to help guide you through the process before your session.  And you’ll also receive a series of information emails before your session to ensure you know exactly what/when/where for everything.  We’ll help you be prepared for the best possible session with all the details and not just the address of the studio
  • Want to bring a sister?  A family pet?  Not a problem.  And NOT an extra charge either.  We love when you bring a friend too…
  • Bring as many outfits as you want – we’ll decide once you get here what will work where and what we can use in different locations during your session.  The more you bring, the better your choices in the end!  We love helping you with your clothing and advising you on where your outfits will work the best – let us help you!  (session types make suggestions as to how many outfits to bring, but we encourage you to bring LOTS more)
  • Want a professional hair and/or make up artist at your session?  Not a problem.  We have options and we can arrange to have someone here for you.
  • We take our time during your session- we aren’t “clock watchers”.  We’ll be sure to ask if there is anything specific you want from each area or outfit, and we’ll make suggestions too to help guide you for the best images.  We’ll work with you to find the best poses for you, the best lighting for you, and the best backdrops or areas for both you and your clothing choices.  Everything about your session is customized…and we’ll use our experience to help you get the best of everything in your proof gallery.
  • After your session you’ll leave with a special thank you “goodie bag”…filled with items to help you remember our studio, and information on what happens next at the same time.  We even make sure when you leave it’s on a “sweet” note with our customized treats in each bag.
  • You’ll receive your gallery of proofs within 7 days of your session- some times sooner!  You’ll have a ton of options, and you might even be overwhelmed with the number of images and choices to make….(sorry about that)
  • Want to order it all online?  No problem.  Your proof gallery is a shopping cart and you can purchase a la carte online, on your own easily if you’d like.
  • Want some help with your order?  “In person” ordering is available so you get what you want and/or need – and you get to be sure it’s going to be exactly right for you.  Our Create Your Own Package system was designed by Patty Schuchman Seniors to give you the most for less…we analyze our orders regularly to see what folks are ordering and have come up with a way to give you the most that we feel truly benefits every client.  Our in person ordering process takes about 1 hour, usually a week or so after your gallery of proofs is presented.  We’ll help you plan for everything you need and/or want, even help you find the right size and ratio for your images.  We can build storyboards, show you books, and more with our special ordering software while you are here.
  • Want to see something before you order it?  We have actual samples of all the products we offer to touch and feel before you purchase anything in our studio.
  • Want everything from your session but can’t afford it all now?  Not a problem.  We offer split payment plans and will always work to find a way to get you what you want in a reasonable way.
  • After your order is placed, impeccable care will be taken with your print or digital order to be sure you are receiving the best possible products – nothing is delivered to a client we wouldn’t hang up in our own home.
  • Your favorite ordered images from your session will be put on social media for you as a courtesy…so you can share and show off your images with all your friends and family.
  • And then we offer one more perk….The Parting Shot session.  The FREE mini session offered to EVERY SINGLE SENIOR CLIENT in the spring right before graduation.  You can book this quick mini outdoor session in April, May or June on Mondays or Thursdays and bring either a cap & gown (or borrow one of ours), or college spirit wear from the school you’ll be going to, a uniform if you are going into service, or just a great new outfit.  After your session you’ll see your shopping cart gallery offers specially priced packages and a la carte pricing as a thank you for being a Patty Schuchman Senior!
 Need more to decide?  Tell us what we’ve missed so we can consider offering it if we haven’t already thought of it!
