The 2017-2018 school year is nearly here... and those of you who are coming into your senior year of high school (or those of you who are the parents to a senior) are most likely at this very moment wondering where the time has gone... HOW did your SENIOR YEAR creep up so fast?!?!? This year brings on so much excitement, planning and prep and perhaps even a little anxiety! But... no worries, everyone who has been in your shoes felt what you are, and those who will follow behind you will feel the same way as well!
Since the beginning of my journey in the world of photography, one of my favorite types of sessions has been high school seniors! There's something so exciting about that time in a person's life... they're learning who they are, they're gaining independence and they're making plans, BIG plans, that map out the beginning of their adult lives. And they're excited to be doing so! The first senior session I ever did was for a Baylee, a Class of 2014 graduate from South Vermillion High School in Clinton, Indiana. We actually did "seasonal" sessions for her... I thought it was such a fun idea and loved every minute of it! (And maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like Baylee and I set the bar for the seasonal sessions (at least in the Clinton/Terre Haute area) because we're the first ones in this area that I know of that did it!). I loved the creativity, the uniqueness and the ongoing opportunity to document such an important time in her senior year. I was HOOKED!
My love for senior sessions has grown with each and every senior session that I've done since then... and with it, my passion to create an experience that is as fun and unique as the person I'm taking pictures of. I don't want to just deliver to you a great gallery of senior pictures.... I want so much more for you! I want you to feel pampered and beautiful. I want you to help you every step of the way, from the location to the clothing to creating the vibe you want your pictures to create. I want you to be excited about what we're doing, I want to share in that excitement with you and I want to help you create great memories of this last year of high school! I know how important it is to you... and it's just as important to me! So with all of those things in mind, I created the BCP Senior Experience.
Once you all that the BCP Senior Experience has to offer, I'm confident that you'll be ready to book yours! To give you a rundown of what you can expect, I'm going to share with you some highlights of Sydney's first BCP Senior Experience session. Sydney is my Class of 2018 Senior Rep for West Vigo High School.
Sydney and I were in contact quite a bit before her first session, discussing her likes, dislikes, her personality and her style. We both decided her first BCP Senior Experience should reflect her fun personality and her eye for fashion and style. We decided that the Vigo County fair would be a fun place for her shoot... all of the lights, the bright colors and the happy and fun energy that was buzzing around made it a perfect location! Then we discussed what outfit choices would work well for this shoot. Syd has a great eye for fashion and her outfit choices were on point!!
The day of Sydney's session, she was treated to professional hair and makeup. All of my BCP Senior Experience girls get to do this... it's all part of their experience! I want you to look and feel your best, so I schedule an appointment for you where one of my HAMU gals will fix your hair and make up and have you portrait ready! Literally all you do is show up... it's that easy. They'll find out what look we're going for, for your session and they'll work their magic.
Here's Sydney's before picture.
Isn't she such a natural beauty? I *wish* before pictures of myself looked this great!
So when we were planning Sydney's session, we decided that two outfits would be best. For her first outfit, Sydney chose an adorable cold shoulder dress in white. It was simple, adorable and absolutely perfect! She accessorized with a coral necklace and bracelet. It was fun and added a perfect pop of color. She couldn't have looked more perfect for a session at the Vigo County Fair!
For her second outfit, she went a little more casual with some cute jeans, a light pink top and some pretty layered necklaces and a simple bracelet. I love Sydney's sense of style and her ability to choose the perfect outfits that reflect her personality and her since of style and her session!
So now that the first session of Sydney's BCP Senior Experience has happened... what comes next? Well, for starters, when she first booked with me, she was added into a private Facebook group exclusively for all BCP Senior Experience clients. It's a place to share tips on anything from hair and makeup to fashion to college or anything in between. It's an open forum to not only ask me questions, but anyone in the group!
She also earns gift cards (from the places of her choosing) for her referrals! She literally just has to share her pictures and her experience with her friends who are seniors and when they book with me, she earns gift cards! How cool is that? What's even cooler... when her friends book their BCP Senior Experience they become eligible for the referral program too!
A private Facebook group. Professional Hair and Makeup. A personalized session. Guidance every step of the way. Gorgeous pictures. Gift cards. All of THIS and so much more is what make the BCP Senior Experience *THE* only Senior Sessions in the area of it's kind!
So...what are you waiting for?? If you're a 2018 senior in Vigo, Vermillion, Parke or any of the surrounding counties, Contact Beth Cox Photography today and book your BCP Senior Experience!
