Halfsie Session

Halfsie sessions are our smallest of 3 session options that we regularly offer.  All sessions are all inclusive in that they allow for download of all finished images with a full print release.

Halfsie sessions allow for 1-2 outfits and a couple locations for scenery variety.  A Halfsie session will typically produce about 20-25 final different images.

Our Halfsie session is also our most budget friendly session at only $500. We require only 1/2 the amount to reserve your date and then simply pay the remainder on session day!

You are not limited to a Halfsie session, should you find another option more appealing. 


Q.) Are your senior Influencer's required to book a session with Penny Claire Photography?

A.) Yes. A minimum session purchase of $500 if required. The Halfsie session we offer meets this minimum requirement.  

Learn more about our sessions at the Booking HUB.  We have downloadable info guides there!

Q.) What if my schedule doesn't allow me to participate in one of the themed group photoshoots?

A.) No problem! You are not obligated to participate in every photoshoot offered. Just make the ones that interest you that you are available for. But do keep in mind that each photoshoot is a blast and we'd love to have you there to participate!

Q.) Is there an interview? 

A.) Yes, but not necessarily a formal one. I just want to talk to you and your parent personally to ensure everyone is on board and our personalities are a great fit!  We can chat on the phone or Zoom meet.

Q.) Do I pay extra for the additional photoshoots included (Mini, 4th July, Winter Rod Trip)?

A.) Nope! All you have to do is book your full session! 

The deadline to have your session booked with photo session contract and 50% deposit is February 28th.  Book your session at the Booking HUB.

Q.)  Do I have to do the grad mini when I graduate? Does it cost extra?

A.) Nope! When the year comes that you will graduate soon, you just let me know if you'd like to take advantage of the free mini. You will only pay extra if you decide to upgrade to a longer session with more options. Mini sessions are short sessions that include 7-10 final images and allow for 1 outfit and location only. 

Q.) Are some sessions for HS seniors only?

A.) Nope! Though you are only required to book a Halfsie session for $500, you are always welcome to book one of the others!  We have an inquiry guide you may download with all our senior session details to look at in the Booking HUB.

Q.) Are makeup appointments included?

A.) No. We work with local salons and independent artists, each with their own rates for services.  A few of our favorites are Brenwood Hair and Nail Salon, Betty Jane Makeup, and Alyssa Mauk Foster.  

Q.) Can I download all my images?  Print? Post?

A.) YES!  I will load your images into a gallery you can download from!  Tag pennyclaire.seniors on Instagram, Penny Claire Photography on Facebook, or just give me a shout out on other platforms.

Q.) Do you offer referral discounts or a discounts off the senior session?

A.) Your friends get a free 8x10 when they book using your referral code and you get $40 credit towards printed products for each booking referral you bring should you decide to use it!

Q.) Does the grad mini session apply to any certain degree?

A.) You can used towards any grad achievement of your choice as long s you are no older than 24.

Q.) How long do I have to book my photoshoot and make the first payment for my session if accepted?

A.) February 28th by 11:59pm

Q.) How can I book my session?

A.) Visit the Booking HUB and complete all three steps! 

Q.) When is the 1st influencer session? 

A.) March 12th will be the mini session. This is a solo session to officially introduce you and should take about 20 minutes! This was originally a studio session, but we recently lost our studio to a tragic fire. Therefore, a location for the Jr. Mini Session will be decided at a later date.  You will know at least 1 week prior  where the Jr Session will take place.
