High School Senior Portrait Services

Senior Portraits should be a mix of traditional fine portraits and fun portraiture that expresses your inner personality. Most importantly it should be FUN! We call this the Senior Portrait Experience. This is your chance to look your best and have a great time in the process. Every high school senior is different; we want to work with you to provide you with portraits you and your grandparents will love.


Traditional Portraits

Every portrait session should include at least one professional, well dressed, formal outfit. Going back to the beginning of time in photography families have had formal portraits made of their sons and daughters to celebrate the completion of high school and the crossover into adult hood.


This outfit is traditionally what mom & dad or grandparents will want


Men: Should wear at least one formal outfit. This could be a suit and tie or just a nice shirt and tie. They should also be neatly shaven, beards should be trimmed and hair neatly trimmed and combed.


Woman: Should wear at least one formal blouse with complementing jewelry and daytime make-up. Hair and nails should be made up and well groomed.

For the personal fun portraits EXPRESS YOUR SELF! Dress and bring outfits that express who you are today. BRING YOUR STUFF! Clean out your room and bring it with you, any collections, instruments, uniforms, stuffed animals, sports equipment, you can even bring your entire drum setup and put it together for a few portraits. CARS – TRUCKS – BOY FRIENDS – GIRLFRIENDS – SIBLINGS AND MORE….


Portraits can be made in the studio- in a park – at your home or any location of your choice.


Mission Statement

Our mission is to create timeless memories for your students, their families and your school or league. We will provide an efficient and enjoyable portrait experience that is completely hassle-free. Our goal is simple. Our job is not done until everyone is thrilled with both our products and services. We guarantee it!


5 Steps to your Portrait experience!

The process can be confusing, especially if this is your first time. Please feel free to contact the studio at any time to discuss all your options and our pricing. We know that we are a great value for what we offer; therefore we are not afraid to share our pricing online. You might find senior portraits for less money, but ask yourself what you are giving up. Bob has over 25 years experience in the industry and was chosen to be one of the top 400 high school senior photographers in the USA and Canada again for the class of 2015. Has been voted the best photographer in Medina County for 11 years in a row and was the 2011 Northern Ohio Photographer of the year. We know that if you choose to work with Contemporary Photography Studio, you will love the final product. We even guarantee it.


1. Step up a time to "chat" about your session

  • We meet with every client before the photography date to discuss our options and make sure we are capturing the inner you. We further discuss clothing options and what to bring. This also gives the student and photographer a little time to get to know each other, this often results in the high school senior being more comfortable and relaxed during the session showing a more natural expression and better photographs.


2. Choose YOUR Session Style

  •  We offer many choices in senior photography sessions. These are based on time, locations and clothing changes. The session helps to cover the photographer's time that he spends with you and the preparation of your preview images. Session fee is due at the time of booking the date for your session. If for some reason you cannot make your appointment, just call we will help you find a better time to fit your needs.
  •  Traditional Photo Shoot $35.00
    Photographs from this session are created in our studio. The session is 60 minutes in time and includes traditional style portrait photography of head and shoulder poses, 3 quarter and full length poses. Bring as many outfits, props, pets or equipment that you like and we will create sets that bring out not just classic portraiture but something fun and special just for you.
  • Designer Photo Shoot $55.00
    This is our most popular session offering more photography time, more variety and more fun! You get everything in the Traditional session plus outdoor portraits created in walking distance to our downtown Medina studio. Enjoy two hours of photography time and bring as many outfits and props as you like.
  • Inspired Photo Shoot $75.00
    Are you looking for more out of your Senior Experience? This is the session for you. Even more photography time, more variety and more fun! You have up to 3 hours at locations of your choice within 40 miles of the studio. If you are into the urban grunge or soft woods and fields our staff can help you find the right location to create outdoor portraits you will love to share. Add the traditional session to this session to create a complete portfolio.
  • Bring your Stuff! What is it that you love to do? After booking one of our design specialist will chat with you about your hobbies and activities. We want to design a portrait experience that is custom to you.


3. Picture Day!

  • Get a good night's sleep and all your clothing changes and props out the night before. Try not to be stressed, avoid any disagreements concerning the photography session with family members. We will be taking a lot of photographs, plenty to make everyone happy. Try to come to the appointment a little early so you do not feel rushed, and be ready to be treated like a star.


4. Viewing Session

  • After the photography session is over you will set up a time to come back and view your images on our state of the art projection system. This is like going to the movies but your senior is the star of the show. In this session we will project your senior portraits life size and help you through the ordering process. Most of our clients will place the order that day but some need a little more time and would like to take home printed previews to select from.
  • Printed Preview Images can be taken home for no more than a two week period. There is a $200.00 deposit required to take previews home, this will be deducted from your final order. An ordering appointment will be set when previews are taken from the studio; there is a $5.00 per day fee for previews not returned after the two week deadline.


5. Order Appointment!

  • Again many of our clients do place the photography order at the viewing session but for those who needed a little more time to choose we have an ordering appointment. At this time our staff will help you finalize your portrait order and prepare it for processing. Finished orders are normally ready within 2-3 weeks, often much sooner. At least 50% of the order must be paid in order to send it to the lab. Payment in full is due before any image leaves the studio.

We Offer a LAYAWAY Program

  • Place your order within two weeks of your photo shoot to take advantage of our best pricing.
  • Make a down payment of any amount. Once 50% is paid your order will be processed.
  • Our staff will work with you on a monthly payment plan until your order is paid in full, no worries or hard feelings. We know times are a little tough right now; we will work with you so your student is not cheated out to the Senior Experience.
