Photos have the ability to stop time and illustrate the story of a person’s life. But there’s just something about video that opens up possibilities to tell that story in an entirely different way. The Film Session is for those who want to focus their session on telling a story with moving pictures, capturing those elusive “in-between” moments and expressions that are difficult to do justice to in a photograph alone, showcasing talents and hobbies, visiting your favorite places and doing your favorite things. What does your story look like?

The Film Session

  • Professional Hair and Makeup Styling

  • Multiple Wardrobe Changes

  • 2-3 Hour Session - 2-3 Locations

  • 2-3 minute cinematic film that tells your story

  • 5 Digital Images Included

What Comes Next?

Step One

The consultation. Every Lauren Beesley Senior session starts with a question....well, maybe more than one question. When you book a session with me, I want to get to know you! What's your favorite color? What kind of activities do you like to do outside of school? How would you describe your style? All of which leads to....

Step Two

Session planning. I will take everything you've told me about yourself and your hopes for your session, and get to work. Behind the scenes, I'm thinking of all the ways I can make you shine on photo day. I will help you choose the wardrobe, makeup, and hairstyles that will show off your best features and reflect your personal style.

Step Three

Your Session. My favorite part of being a photographer. Pro tip! Don't be nervous. I've been doing this for years, so I know what angles and poses will make you look your best....and which ones to avoid. Take it from someone who is not a natural in front of the camera, the right photographer makes all the difference.

Step Four

Social Media Sneak Peek. You just finished smiling for what feels like years, and you want to know if all our hard work paid off. Well, you won't have to wait long! The night of your session, I'll share a sneak peek for you to see and share with your friends and family!


Step Five

Photo and Product Selection. After your session, we will schedule a time to meet so that you can see all of your photos! Here you will select your favorite images, and I will help design photo albums and beautiful wall art that will perfectly compliment you and your home. You may also choose a stunning personal online gallery or USB of digital images which you can easily download and share.

Extra Credit

If you have a great experience with me, and love your photos, tell your friends! As a Lauren Beesley Senior, you can earn gift cards to your favorite stores when you refer a friend who also books a Senior Portrait session with me. The icing on the cake: Your friend gets a gift card too! All because I truly appreciate you being an awesome client.

Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself

"Having pictures taken was a little awkward at first, but I think it helps to bring someone else with you. After a while I just felt like I was just goofing around with a couple friends and it wasn't such a big deal."

"Being somebody that's never had professional photos taken, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. Why? Who knows, but Lauren did a great job at making me feel comfortable and beautiful. Any questions relating to location or outfit changes she was able to help me out with. She was there from the very beginning, to even after my shoot. My pictures turned out amazing and my experience was flawless!"

"Working with Lauren was a fun experience for me and for her. She's an amazing photographer! I like her creative ideas she has for her photos. Even though I'm not a photographer, I would like to become one someday. Ever since I did my session with her, I really want to learn more about photography and start doing it soon. I recommend to anyone to get your photos done by Lauren. You won't regret it! I loved my portraits and so did everyone else."

"Working with Lauren Beesley was amazing. As a person who typically doesn't like getting my picture taken, Lauren helped me feel comfortable so I was able to be myself in the pictures. Then when I saw the final product, I was speechless. She had taken beautiful photographs and edited them perfectly."
