During our wardrobe consultation we will discuss all of your ideas, plan out outfits, and choose location ideas. We also leave some wiggle room for what we are known for...creativity. Sometimes we stumble upon the best photo ops on the fly, so we ask that you trust us. Sometimes we will ask you to pose in a way that feels weird, or climb up on top of something. Hey, we didn't say being a model was easy, we just promise amazing results at your ordering session. Just relax and have a blast. Your Senior pictures are a day to remember all you have accomplished and celebrate!
When you book your Senior pictures with DCCP, the day is yours. That means no rushing! Need a break? No problem. Thirsty? Let's grab a latte. We want your day to be a day you will never forget. That is why we give you time to relax in our salon before your shoot starts, and give you all the time you need to feel like the model you are while shooting.
We have no limits on outfit changes, and most Seniors get through about 5-6 head to toe outfit changes before we wrap for the day. If you have something specific you are wanting to do (i.e. get wet in a lake) we will save that look for the end of the day or shoot it on a separate day.
Yes! We are proud to be on the list of approved photographers for Belleville West and Belleville East. We also help our clients submit their favorite images to a plethora of other high schools. We will decide on your yearbook image during your Premier Ordering Session and submit it for you. We also customize graduation announcements, prom photos, and more.
Senior pictures are typically shot the Summer after your Junior year. This gives you plenty of time to receive your images for any yearbook deadlines. However, many seniors prefer to shoot in Spring or Fall and that is fine with us. We will shoot your yearbook headshot early, and schedule the rest of your shoot for later in the year.
We all know that living in the Mid-west means that we have zero control over the weather. However, we have you covered! We keep a day open every week for reschedules in case of weather issues. If it is too cold, hot, rainy, or any other weather debacle, we will let you know in advance and work with you on a new date.
At DCCP we want the day to be yours. We typically start hair and makeup in the morning, and head out on location until we know we have an amazing portfolio of images for you. We ask that you keep your day clear to have maximum flexibility for our ideas, but we are typically completed with a senior session by 2pm.
Wardrobe is a big deal around here! We will schedule a consultation with you and help you find the best looks for your shoot. We also have The Boutique at DCCP for you to shop at for your convenience. We like to prepare you with at least four to five different looks, but have had some seniors bring ten! The choice is yours.
Your session fee is required to hold your date, and includes your senior photo shoot day, and an in-person Premier Image Reveal. Images and photo products are separate from the session retainer. We offer several collections that include heirloom quality photo products and high resolution digital images to fit a variety of needs.
At DCCP you can expect to be challenged, and guided right outside of your comfort zone. You can expect a once in a lifetime experience, a stunning makeover, and a bonding day with a parent. You can expect to see the most amazing photos that you have ever viewed of yourself when it is all over. You can expect to want every image we show you, and heirloom quality products to document and preserve this experience. Oh, and you can also expect two new friends!
Your makeover begins with a visit to DCCP Salon, and is on site for your convenience. Our hair and makeup artists have been trained professionally and have also been educated on the perfect makeup and hair for portrait sessions. After getting your input, our experts will create a photo worthy look for you while you relax. (Like the true model you are) DCCP Salon is also available before your photoshoot for cuts, color, waxing, and any other salon needs in the weeks before your shoot date. You also have the option of bringing your DCCP hair and makeup artist on location with you to change up your looks. Call 855-STL-DCCP ext 2 to speak with our salon manager with any questions.
Our senior sessions fill quickly and we recommend booking early for prime dates. If you are game, let's do this. Go big or go home, right? Click below to book your senior photos with DCCP.
