2-3 outfits are easily workable in a two hour block, it depends on how fast you can change. A quick change can be the same jeans with different jackets, shirts, or scarves. But what about those costumes or uniforms? Don't forget them- this is a chance to take...well chances! Remember to bring a big blanket if the location does not have a facility to change in.

Frequently Asked Questions about Senior portraits
Why should I have Anjeanette Illustration take my senior pictures?
The first and most important thing is individual attention. Graduating from high school is a major event in your life and you will get individualized attention to create special images just for you. Choose me if you like my style, and like the photos you see! In fact do NOT choose me if there is another photographers style you prefer- choose them. Basically, look at your photographers choices via blogs, an online portfolio or on social media. This site is mine! Expect that what you see from a photographer is what you will get for your memories- then book the person who will give you what you want for your once in a lifetime senior memories. You have to look at these photos hanging in your parents homes basically the rest of your life after all! I would just love to be a part of your memories.
Do you charge more than the school photographer?
It really depends, however most high-volume yearbook photographers charge more than I do for their sessions and products. Please compare our prices. ;)
Do you photograph yearbook headshots?
Check your school’s guidelines for yearbook headshots. If you are allowed to select your own image to submit from your senior portrait session, then we can photograph any type of image that you would like for your yearbook. I can photograph tux or graduation gown headshots, however IF you supply the garment. I have Drape options and pearls for ladies.
I want to wear my hair two different ways – can I do that at my session?
Most quick changes can be done in the standard two hour senior session. If you are wanting to wear your hair in two distinctly different ways – such as curly and straight involving tools and product hairdressing-you will need to book extra time in order to account for the time involved to change your hair during your session. If you are simply wanting to change up your look a little during your session – such as pulling part, or all, of your hair up for certain outfits – you can absolutely do that during a regular session. I LOVE variety and love to show off your multiple styles.
How many poses can I have?
You are not limited to a set number of poses. Once again we are not the high-volume yearbook photographer. Your session is tailored to your individual need, the clothes you have and the props you bring. I pack as much into a two hour session as I possibly can, and we can always stay longer to get you what you want!
How many outfits can I bring?
Bring as many outfits as you can carry! As MANY as you like! Our sessions are based on time, NOT on the number of outfits you are limited to. In general, we can typically photograph 3-4 outfits per hour, however this is entirely dependent on you. The more time you spend getting ready between outfits, the fewer outfits we will get to, and vice versa.
We encourage you to bring LOTS of options – we will assist you in selecting the best variety of looks to make your senior portrait session the best experience it can be.I get a lot of my inspiration from your outfits, so go crazy. The more outfits you bring, the more options we have for portraits. Even clothes you may not like can look awesome in a photo! It’s way better to bring too much than not enough.
Can I bring along props?
Please do, I welcome you to bring clothes and props that represent your personality and activities! I get really excited when someone brings along something that will make their portrait session different from everyone else’s. I guarantee that your session will not look exactly like everyone else’s, and the more props the more ditinct yours will be.
How about my pets?
They are welcome as well. They are more than welcome, even. I have experience with furry siblings :)
What can I expect during my photo session?
The length of the shoot will be about two hours not counting travel time. If you have an iPhone or iPod we can listen to your music. Parents and friends are always welcome. The one thing you can absolutely expect is to have an AWESOME time! There will be cool, serious looks, and silly ones, you'll laugh and groan at my terrible jokes.
Do I have to do cheesy poses?
Only if you want to :) The whole point of your portrait session is to make you look like you. Never feel obligated to do something you’re not comfortable with.
What about blemishes?
Do not worry! Almost everyone has days with less than perfect skin. Applying makeup properly can help make sure your preview images look their best. After you have selected your final poses I go over each image to remove minor skin blemishes. This is one small part of what is involved in creating your finished prints. Most braces can be removed at this time but only for the final prints and not for the previews. Removing blemishes, straightening and whitening teeth are just some of the things that I provide to make your pictures look their best and am experienced in a variety of flattering poses and techniques if you are less confidant about posing. However, I do not do extensive body modifications: my policy is that if its temporary I remove it. If its permanent it stays!
Be loving and accepting of who you are and the natural beauty you posses.
Where are you located?
I am located in Deer Valley- Peoria & Glendale Arizona. I also cover Phoenix, Az.
! I just relocated from Hendersonville, Tn home of Johny Cash. I am available to travel throughout the Phoenix area.
Do you photograph in studio or on location?
Yes to both! I specialize in rich artistic location settings, and am available for location photography and well as a mobile 'studio' that can be set up in home or near the location for fashion-inspired, dramatic in-studio portraiture indoor/background looks– from urban settings to custom locations, we create the senior experience that YOU want. I photograph with both natural light and fashion studio lighting – I want to make sure you have a variety of looks to show off your individual style. On location we also photograph with numerous location lighting techniques – from fashion lighting to natural light and more. Photography is the art of ‘painting with light,’ and my goal is to make you feel as incredible as you look!
How much will portraits cost?
I charge a session fee of $300 with a minimum print order of $350 for a two hour photography session which includes: online gallery, beautifully edited images, digital download, print rights, custom session timeline and locations, and my travel.
When is the payment due?
As my schedule allows for a limited number of sessions per year, I must turn down other clients in order to provide the services agreed upon. Thus a non refundable retainer of the full session fee is due at booking (via card, check, or cash) to HOLD your appointment.
Do you photograph guys senior portraits?
Absolutely! We photograph almost as many guys as we do girls each year! We love showing off the individual style of our guys, whatever it may be – fashion, sports, urban, skateboarding, techy, whatever your style is we love to focus on having fun and showing off YOUR individual style.
Do I have to come in for a consultation? Can’t I just book a session by phone ?
We can book by phone, text, email or...whatever new techy way that comes out! However, eventually we gotta meet and make a deposit or payment arraignments in order to take and process your photos ;)
How long do you keep my image files?
All packages Include an online gallery of beautifully edited images, digital download, print rights, as well exclusive upgrades like physical prints, canvas, and fine art paintings.. All images are archived for a period of 1 year.
What about evening and weekend appointments?
I know that a senior schedule is sometimes a balancing act with extra school activities. This requires weekend and evening appointments that can be done without any extra charge. Most popular times are sunset hours, as well as August, September, and October. If you want a specific date or time or year book early!
Just who is this Anjeanette person anyway?
Actually, I usually go by Ayjey. I am a geek, a wife, and a proud mama. I often forget I am the age I am because I feel about 11! I am silly, awkward as all, and about a million other feelings all at once. The 'official' 3rd person explanation is here on my ABOUT section- you seriously would not believe how much time and the effort I put into your session before, during, and after. However, it all boils down to I am an artist who takes great care and commitment into making the MOST of your memories!!!

Don’t I have to use the school yearbook company?
No, you do not have to go to the school yearbook photographer. They are only hired to take your yearbook mug-shot. Unless otherwise stated that is the image they will use in the yearbook regardless. You are so much more than one shot!
Honestly, I love and have taken the traditional tux and drape shot. Its a classic! So get it and enjoy that....I suggest getting the school approved portrait package for a formal yearbook shot......but what about YOU? Your hobbies and passions? Some schools allow independent photographers images- like mine- to also appear in your book. Regardless an individualized senior session is an important milestone. All other photographs from the schools photographer will be fast, cookie cutter images, and they are completely optional!
Over and over I’ve been encountering seniors who believe that they must use the school photographer for their senior portraits. The schoolsyearbook photography companies will attempt to lead you to believe that they are the ONLY photographers and you must go to them since they purchased a contract with your school for your photos, that is not true and you are not obligated to buy anything from them-get them if you want to and add the real you personaility and artistic Modern portrait from Anjeanette Photography!
You are free to make your choice about your senior photographer!
I encourage you to look around at several talented, small, independent photographers such as myself in your area. Make a decision based on the quality of their work. You will get better quality images, more time spent with you and more poses to choose from if you use an independent photographer with years of training and artistic experience.
The yearbook photography companies are usually high-volume studios. You’ll still pay big bucks for your senior pictures, but what you won’t realize is that you are paying for the business name. Consider your options. There is no need to pay plenty of money for 30 minutes in a studio and only have a few poses to choose from. In the world of digital imagery, why would a studio only let you pick a few poses? Independent photographers will provide you with lots of options and will take the time to individually edit your images. They will take pride in their work because the images they produce will be a direct reflection of their abilities.
