HANNAH RUTH PHOTOGRAPHY
At Hannah Ruth Photography, we understand how important your senior year is. That’s why we are here to capture this special moment in your life with stunning photographs that highlight your beauty, uniqueness, and personality. For your convenience, I have compiled a list of frequently asked questions from past seniors. By reading through these questions, you’ll get a better understanding of what to expect from your upcoming photoshoot, what to wear, and tips on how to prepare for your session.
Frequently Asked Questions
"WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY SENIOR PHOTO SESSION?"
Choose a wardrobe for your session that really puts the different parts of your personality on display. What does casual look like for you? What does dressy look like for you? What do you feel best wearing? And don’t forget the accessories. Stay away from short dresses– they can limit the posing we do. Neon colors don’t photograph well. Bright yellows and reds often don’t look flattering. Make sure to choose colors that look great with your skin tone.
"HOW LONG WILL THE PHOTO SESSION LAST?"
That is all up to you. You choose how much time, then we collaborate on a plan to maximize that time to get as many outfits and locations in as time permits. If your priority is multiple locations, you may consider purchasing additional time.
"CAN I BRING PROPS OR ACCESSORIES TO THE SESSION?"
Sure, especially if they showcase your personality. Let’s chat about your ideas in your consultation.
"DO YOU OFFER INDOOR AND OUTDOOR SESSIONS?"
I don’t have studio space, so the majority of my sessions are outdoors. However, there are some great indoor options in NE Indiana that we could use for your session.
"CAN I BRING A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND TO THE SESSION?"
Yes, only if they are a hype person for you. It is great to have extra hands to help and eyes to look for minor details that they will know you care about. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the people you bring with you must help you feel comfortable. Bonus points if they can bring out your natural laugh!
"WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSIONS?"
If you would like a social media sneak peek, that comes first. Then within 45 days, you will receive your digital gallery via a personalized link. From there you can order professional prints and download your choice of edits.
"WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS"
Seniors are my people. Before going full time as a photographer, I was a high school teacher for ten years. Senior photography is where I started and it has had my heart ever since. I have a gift of making teenagers feel comfortable and look great in front of the camera– my specialty are the seniors that claim they are “awkward”. I love working with seniors because I love the opportunity for them to really see themselves in photos as beautiful and as fun and as courageous as the rest of the world sees them.
From the beginning Hannah was amazing. She was very understanding and accommodating when we needed to reschedule our shoot due to a loss in our family. Our session day was a bit chilly and very breezy, but Hannah got the most amazing shots. It was my daughters senior picture session and she’s not what you’d call a typical teenager who loves her picture taken. Hannah made her feel so at ease and had her laughing so much, that her beautiful smile appeared quite often. Hannah posted a sneak peek the very next day and access to our photos was given within 3 days. I would highly recommend her for any type of photo session you are looking for. Thanks Hannah for your amazing work!
