Senior Session

Let's make your Senior Session fun and unique!

The photos should be a reflection of who you are – show off your style and personality! Sessions can take place here at my farmhouse studio – I have a rustic outdoor setting (it’s a real working farm!) as well as an indoor studio. We can also meet up at a location of your choice within 30 miles of the Ypsilanti area. Downtown Ann Arbor, Depot Town and The Arb are other great locations for photos! Want to see examples from particular locations? Just simply type in “Ann Arbor” or “Depot Town” or “Farm” in the search section on the top of this website. It will bring up blog posts from previous sessions!

    Tips and FAQ

    How many outfits can I bring?

    You are welcome to bring as many outfits as you like, but depending on how long the session is we can generally get through 2-5 outfits. It’s always good to bring a few extra things just to have variety. Your outfits should definitely reflect your personal style! Also, as excited as you might be about a new outfit – try to wear it at least once before your session. You want to look good and feel comfortable, as you will be moving around, walking and sitting down. Photos can be slightly unforgiving if clothing is too tight or too short. If you feel uncomfortable, the photos will show it. If we are meeting up at a location you might want to bring a comfortable pair of shoes – we will be doing a lot of walking! You can always change for the photos. Summer is such a busy time! It’s best to book your senior session as soon as you know your availability! Yearbook deadlines are generally in the fall, so be sure to allow enough time to get a photo submitted. I recommend scheduling the session later in the day or even evening. The light is much more pleasant at that time!

    When can I see the photos?

    My turnaround time is generally 3 weeks from the session date. You will receive an email with the gallery information for viewing.

    Will any of the photos be posted on social media?

    Yes – as long as it’s ok with you! Follow me on Facebook and Instagram.

    I know, this is SO much information! Please feel free to give me a call and we can chat about your senior session (734) 776-5506! Or drop me an email - I'm glad to answer your Senior Session Questions! tracy@tracygrosshans.com  

    Kid Sessions

    Let’s make your Kid Session fun and unique!

    When I was a kid, my grandma used to say “You’re growing like a weed!” 

    That is such a true statement when it comes to kids! Time flies, and it’s so important to capture them as they grow and change – it’s so fun to see their personalities come through in the photos. I work out of my unique farmhouse studio, which has a rustic outdoor setting (it’s a real working farm!) as well as an indoor studio space.

    Tips & FAQ
    I highly recommend scheduling the session according to what’s best for the child’s schedule. If they are tired and cranky, it really doesn’t make for good photos. Be sure to bring plenty of snacks for the little ones! Even if it isn’t their normal time of day for a snack, it sometimes helps with keeping them happy!

    What if my child won’t participate in photos?! 

    Rest assured this hasn’t really ever happened. Sure little ones are busy, but I have lots of toys and puppets that work well! So be ready to be a puppet character! If the child is under 3 years old, just keep in mind they really have no idea what we are trying to accomplish! I work patiently with them to get the smiles and expressions that I do.

    What should we wear? 

    If we are doing a family photo as well as child photos – I always recommend coordinating colors instead of everyone wearing the same color. It’s not necessary for everyone to wear all white – it’s just not my style.

    How many outfits can I bring? 

    In a one hour session, we can generally get through two outfits. Little ones don’t really enjoy changing clothes, so two outfit changes = a happier child. I always recommend bringing more than we need though, just to have variety. If the child is under the age of 4, it might be best to get them dressed here – you never know what could happen on the car ride! I know parents really want smiley photos, but I also love capturing ALL of their expressions – it’s who they are! So don’t feel frustrated if they aren’t smiling the entire time they are in front of the camera.

    Oh no it’s raining and I wanted outdoor farm photos! 

    No problem, we can easily reschedule on a day that is nicer!

    My child has a cold or other illness, what should I do? 

    We should definitely reschedule! Even a minor cold can = an unhappy child. It’s best to capture them when they are feeling good!

    Can we bring our pet to the session? 

    Of course, I love animals & they are part of the family! Just keep in mind that it does add a bit more chaos to the session. I recommend doing one or two scenarios with the pet so have a plan in place for the it while we do the remainder of the session. You could also bring a friend to help with the pet!

    Newborn Sessions

    LET ME CAPTURE YOUR NEW LITTLE ONE!

    Newborns change and grow in the blink of an eye – it’s so important to have this time captured! I recommend doing the newborn session within the first 1-2 weeks – that’s when they sleep the most soundly and don’t mind being moved around – often they sleep right through the whole session! I know you might be thinking “how will we get it together enough to leave the house with a new baby?!” Rest assured – my home studio is a comfortable and spacious setting for new parents! You can simply relax while I take the photos!

    Package One $200

    • 2 hour Newborn session in studio.
    • Private online gallery for viewing and ordering
    • FREE 4×6 spiral bound proof book featuring 24 images of your choice
    • Custom prints & products available for purchase

    *digital files NOT included in this package

    Digital Package Two $585

    • 2 hour Newborn session in studio.
    • Private online gallery for viewing and choosing images
    • 10 High resolution retouched files of your choice with permission to make prints

    CAPTURE THE FIRST YEAR!

    Book 4 sessions to capture your child’s first year (newborn, 3 month, 6 month & 1 year) you will receive a FREE 12×18 custom canvas print after their one year session! It’s so fun to capture them at these stages – they change so much in the first year!

    Tips and FAQ
    Sessions generally take around 2 hours so be sure to bring enough baby supplies.

    If the newborn has siblings - I recommend doing those photos first so they can relax and play while the newborn session is taking place. If you have an energetic toddler, you might want to have a plan in place for them. I do have some toys, but you are welcome to bring a movie or additional things for them.

    My style is very simple as you can see from my portfolio – I don’t go crazy with props. I generally take the photos with them in just a diaper, I do have some diaper covers but if you have something in mind feel free to bring it! If you have a favorite outfit, we can of course take some photos with that! I’ve had clients bring headbands, hats and a special blanket – those are all totally fine!

    It’s a really nice time to also capture at least a few photos of the newborn with each parent. I know, you aren’t getting much sleep right now but it will be worth it!

    What if my baby cries the entire time?!

    Well I can say I’ve never had a baby cry for 2 hours – sure there are times when they get fussy but it’s generally under control!

    Do you offer birth announcement?

    Yes - I create custom announcements – feel free to email me and I will give you all the details. Feeling overwhelmed with all of this information & a new baby on the way?  Feel free to contact me at: tracy@tracygrosshans.com or call: (734) 776-5506
