What makes great senior portraits?
Excellent photos result from good listening as well as seeing. We like to plan your shoot with you, finding locations and photographic elements meaningful to you.
Do you edit the images?
All of the images presented in the proofing gallery receive our editorial polish. With 20 years of Photoshop experience, we're known for our responsible, naturalistic, retouching.
What if it rains the day of my shoot?
As you know, weather in Montana can be unpredictable. If your session gets rained out (or snowed or it's too smoky), we will reschedule your session for the next available date at your convenience.
Can I print and share the photos myself?
With the Slikati Session, the images are licensed to you so you can print wherever, whenever, and in whatever quantity! For the best quality, we recomend ordering prints from your gallery at very reasonable rates. With our basic session, you may choose to buy the files and a print license.
What should I wear?
Girls: Generally we can shoot 2-3 outfits per hour, but bring as many as you want and we'll help you select the best variety of looks! Small patterns or prints generally look better than large. Darker tones are more flattering than bright colors or neon, which can cast unwanted glow. Style your hair and make-up as you normally would (our lighting won't wash you out like theater lighting), and a hairbrush or comb to tame fly-aways.
Guys: Just like for girls, we recommend you bring a variety of options, such as T- shirts, polo, crew neck, button down or sweaters. Jeans, light or dark, and shorts look great. Letter jackets look best with a white T-shirt. Lastly, make sure to bring a comb or brush to keep those locks in place!
What about props?
Bring all the accessories for your outfits, such as jewelry, shoes, etc. Bring any props such as jerseys, musical instruments, class ring, pets, books, bags, cars, snowmobiles, cycles, trophies… Anything that expresses your unique style! We do not charge extra for any of the above.
