About Your Sit Session


We understand that you want a variety of portrait styles. While some may want cap and gown formal poses, others may prefer a more casual style.  Arrive at your portrait session with an open mind and the confidence that we can help you achieve the look that represents you and your achievements.  This is your best chance to capture who you are during this memorable part of your life.  Years from now, look back without regret. 



For your sit session, consider the following tips:

  • Your level of preparation will be reflected in your portrait session / photo previews so, be ready for a true "studio" experience
  • Decide which achievements you want to celebrate and bring the items that highlight your achievements – sports gear, musical instruments, etc. (bringing props is optional)
  • Bring clothes that you are comfortable in, whether they are dressy or casual
  • Bring matching shoes and accessories
  • Bring outfits that are ironed or pressed, preferably on hangers
  • Style your hair and do your make-up before your session
  • Your sitting fee is $30 - we only accept cash and cheques (we do NOT accept debit and credit)       
  • It is important that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment start time - we need this time to get you ready 


For cap and gown images, consider the following tips:

  • For men, wear a dress shirt and tie
