The senior experience | What to expect when booking your senior portraits with me. Charlotte senior photographer Nina Bashaw. Augusta Ga photographer


I specialize in natural light portraits, which means I do all my sessions outdoors. Here is Charlotte there are so many greats parks and downtown area's to choose from! You can make your senior photos more personal by choosing the out door location of your choice! Whether it’s the local coffee shop or park, let me know if there is a special place that is sentimental to you! I am a senior portrait photographer based out of Columbia, SC but I frequently travel to Charleston, Charlotte, Greenville, and Augusta for shoots. So feel free to let me know if you have specific place in mind that you would like to travel to have your photos taken at and we can come up with a customized plan for you senior experience with me as your senior photographer.


A 50% non-refundable deposit and signing of a contract is required upon securing your date. The remaining 50% of your balance is due two weeks prior to your session. Senior portrait sessions start at $450.


Sessions are scheduled 1-3 months in advance depending on availibltiy. Cancellations and reschedules must be made via email or phone at least 48 hours prior to your session. Deposits are non-refundable.


Wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident! Patterns, bold colors, and accessories photograph really well. My goal as your Columbia senior photographer is to capture you in your element, so feel free to get creative with your wardrobe! I encourage you to bring a minimum of two outfits maximum of four. That way you can make it more personal and have variety in your photos! Make sure that your nails are

clean and if you have polish on make sure it is not chipped. Also make sure to bring all of the correct undergarments such as nude strapless bra and underwear.


In order to make the most of your time, it is helpful to have all of your outfits and accessories ready to go before the shoot! If you would like help on deciding on outfit choices I am happy to be off assistants in either shopping for new outfits or choosing with in your existing wardrobe. Professional hair and make up can be arranged for an additional charge.


Don’t be afraid to let loose and let your personality shine! If you have ideas or a specific theme you’d like to incorporate, or if you are involved in sports, music, or any other activity, please let me know. I want to show off your personality and let your beauty shin through.


Prior to you shoot I like to meet in person to answer any questions you have, get to know you better, talk about your vision for your senior photos, and plan out when and where we will do your shoot. That way on the day of your photoshoot we are more aquatinted and have a clear and organized plan. Once we get to the first location, we’ll take a few test shots to get you comfortable in front of the camera. If you bring along any props we will take a little extra time to photograph these items as well.

I will guide you through different poses that are the most flattering and showcase your personality. I have spent years perfecting the art of posing, it's what I am best at. We take our time and I will pose you in a flattering and natural way. If you have an specific pose ideas feel free to show me, that we can use it for inspiration and customize the pose to fit you and your personality. If you have a cool piece of furniture you would like to incorporate into your session (a pretty upholstered chair) feel free to bring it! If you play sports or are in any other school activities feel free to bring those props with you!
