a purple tree senior portrait experience is a full on photoshoot, the real deal by a former art director (that’s me). every session includes hair and makeup (for the girls) by one of my professional stylists, a welcome guide, pre-session consult, location guide and more. there are no limits on time or clothing changes, however, most sessions take two to three hours and i recommend three to four clothing options for both guys and girls. i’m available to call, text and/or video chat if and when you need me from the beginning to end! and I should mention, it’s also super fun and a once in a lifetime experience!
