What will my photo shoot be like?

In a word, FUN! John and the staff at Contemporary put all the focus on YOU when you’re being photographed. You will be able to talk with John before you start about any special requests or concerns you may have. John’s easygoing manner and sense of humor help put even the most camera-shy senior at ease. His true professionalism shines as he gently guides you into the most natural poses, while at the same time making it hardly seem like you’re being photographed at all.

What makes your portraits look so much better?

Contemporary is the complete package - John has the uncanny skill of bring able to know which poses will work for you (it’s not the same for everybody). His knowledge of proper lighting will make sure you are flattered in every way. He knows exactly what to say to get a natural expression. His editing techniques are like no other - NO fake plasticky Barbie-like complexions here! Combine that with expert advice during your shoot along with the highest resolution image capturing in the area (and probably the state), Contemporary’s senior portraits always bring out your very best.

How long will it take to see my pictures?

You will leave your photo shoot with an appointment to see your pictures, usually in 2 to 5 business days. Your finished portraits will be ready in 4 to 6 weeks (perfection takes time).

Do you sell photos for sharing on social media?

No—because they’re included at NO CHARGE! You will get a free social media photo for every pose you order from.

What if I don’t like my pictures?

During your photo shoot we constantly check your images as they come up on the camera and show them to you. If something isn’t right (and usually it involves a hair, an expression or a clothing adjustment) we can make the necessary corrections. It’s virtually impossible to not like your portraits. You’ll leave the studio knowing they’re perfect!

I want to have my pictures done later in the year. Why should I call now?

Our schedule is already filling up FAST. Because there is only a limited number of appointments available, it’s very important that you schedule yours right now. Every year we have to turn away seniors who waited too long. So don’t be disappointed—call today!
