Seniors 2018

Well that time is upon us again.  Our juniors become seniors and after that become adults.  It's easy to forget sometimes that your senior is going to go on so school at a collage or tradeschool.  Perhaps they join the workforce right out of high school and start earning a living on their own.  One thing is for sure, they will be leaving you soon.

You will want some excellent pictures to commemorate the passing into adulthood.  You may see them every day or you may only see them once a year.  You can appreciate thier portrait that is hanging in your living room every day.  It's once of the fhings parenting is all about.  Raising your children to be an adult and then letting them go is one of the rites of passage.  Get an excellent portrait, you won't regret it.

Spring Break and Decisions

If you are a member of the Class of 2018, congratulations!  You made it!  You have many decisions coming up regarding your senior year and one of the first is for your senior pictures.  You want someone who knows what they are  doing, after all this will be the most definitive portrait that you will do in your life.  

When you are choosing a photographer don't be confused about things like a person claiming to be a  photographer  because they have a nice camera.  The gear they use is just a means to and end.  Look for a photographer that is certified by the PPA and is a real business person in the community.  You want a professional relationship with that person because they are the expert at their craft and will bring out the best in you.  To understand why click on the link below to see a short video.

A reputable business

When you are choosing a photographer it's a good idea to pick one that is a real business person.  What I mean by that is they do photography not only to earn a living but also to be part of the community we all live in.  They should give back, not only in for form of charity but also in being responsible citizens and paying taxes, insurance, utilities and all of the things that go with being an adult.

 You want them to provide you with great images but how are they going to do that for free?  The answer is they can't, and if they are running a business they really can't.  Photography is a high overhead business and just printing the pictures out is not ordinarrily the biggest expense.

Remember, just because you have a nice camera does not mean that you take nice pictures or run a  business.  


Doing good things

Doing good things makes you feel like you stand for something.  Helping someone else when the chips are down is not something that a business needs to do, but it is nice if they choose to help.  

Studio One supports the Oldham Project.  Which gives cancer patients free portraits for themselves and thier loved ones.  It's a great cause that we are proud to support.

Your choosing Studio One for your portrait needs helps to insure that Studio One is able to do good things for the community.

The Only Way to See Snow

Lets face it, this winter has been a crazy year weather wise.  Mid 60's in the middle of Febrary is insane!  If you want senior portraits in the snow you would think you are out of luck.  Studio One can do them right inside our studio and add snow later.  You don't even have the snow falling in front of your face in the pictures.

Meanwhile enjoy the wonderful weather while it lasts.  This is still Michigan.

Bonus Items

You might think that there are no deals at a good photography studio.  You would be wrong.  Studio One has several bonus items this next year including these accordian albums.  You can earn them for free depending upon what you order.  

Studio One, not just a better deal but a better value.

Have you updated your business portrait lately?

Have you updated your picture lately on your social meda and web site?  It's importrant to have a nice looking professionall photo that is not totally out of date.  When people meet you for business you really don't want a picture that is 20 years old.  You want a relatively recent photo that looks professional.  Not a selfie from your last vacation.  

Be taken seriously, get a new portrait.
