We had a great time at the beach photographing Senior Pictures for this trio of High School Senior girls. They all attend Leland High School and have been enjoying the last few days of summer before school begins. Busy schedules lie ahead which is the reason they wanted to get the Senior Portraits done.


How does the whole process of taking Senior Pictures work?

It’s a very easy process and just takes a simple phone call or email to Charlene Chavez Photography. We speak about what location you are looking for, what theme if any such as vintage, with a cessna, fashionable flair, parachute dress or blue skies. There are so many possibilities..if you can think it we can make it happen. Then next step is to meet at the studio where we will show you a slideshow of a variety of our work. We walk you through products that are available such as Portraits, Canvas, Canvas Collections, Metal Portraits, Albums, Books and many many other products. We go over pricing and your Wish List, Your Wish List is very important because you will know exactly where you are going to place it on your walls or how many items you will be needing. You don’t want to forget your Siblings, Uncles, Aunts and Grandma!

After you book your date, we collect your Session Fee so that we add you to the calendar. Before you leave we provide a Magazine type booklet that contains a list of very important essentials for the day of the photo shoot. We want your son or daughter to come prepared and the Magazine is very helpful. We meet on the day of the photo shoot and create many beautiful images. We set another date and create a slideshow for you and who ever you want to invite but be ready, the slideshow will probably make you cry but that’s ok, we have tissue at the studio for that. You then view your images again and  you select the product, sizes, how many and you will pay before you leave.

I place the order for your product, they arrive 7-10 business days and I deliver them to you. You cry again, I’ll have tissue again and we give each other a huge hug because we are both very happy you booked your teens Senior Pictures.

And we all lived happily ever after…

Seriously, if you have any questions about Senior Pictures please give us a call.

Senior Portraits – High School Senior Model Application

The Model Program is a great way for students to earn money, portrait credit or gift cards to their favorite stores such as Gap, Anthropology, iTunes the Apple Store and many more to choose from!
Not only do you earn great gifts from us but you can also qualify to win all images from your photo shoot and we’ll create a behind the scenes video from start to finish of all your photo shoots.
We also shoot in destination areas as well. Is your family going to Vegas, Lake Tahoe, Hawaii or spending the day in SF? We can photograph you anywhere and get awesome images!

Still interested? We start off with a consultation in the studio with at least one parent and yourself to explain how it works and then we book a Free 30 Minute Session to create Marketing Material for the studio. You’re going to need Senior Potraits anyway so why not have fun & have the chance at winning your experience for free?

We look forward to hearing from you!

You can find us in downtown San Jose on the corner of First Street and East Santa Clara. We are by appointment only so please call to schedule your consultation.

In late January I attended the SPA 2011 Convention in Palm Springs, California where hundreds of photographers met to share ideas and learn from one another. We stayed at the Riviera Hotel as well as photographed the Top Models there and what beautiful decor and backdrops we had!!! I will share some images soon but what an incredible experience not only for us photographers but for the High School Senior Models who each represented photography studios from all over the United States and other parts of the world! Every year High School Seniors who become Senior Models for photography studios have a chance to win a trip to the SPA Conventions. They are photographed by photographers from around the world, treated like Movie Stars, they “Walk the Walk” in the Top Model SPA Fashion Show, see below, and AIG Model Managementis present at the SPA Convention.
