Senior Portrait Experience

What to Expect

Amber Fox Photographer is based out of the city of Fullerton, which is located in North Orange County, California. I specialize in hip & happy Senior Portraits of fabulous high school seniors. Amber Fox Photographer offers a full Senior Portrait Experience, by offering you professional hair & makeup styling, a 2-3 hour photo shoot and tons of personal attention. In addition to an on location portrait shoot, I will create beautiful heirloom products like custom made coffee table books, fine art wall canvases, beautiful storyboards and fancy wall prints.

It’s also important to know that Amber Fox has also been a photography teacher for 13 years to high school seniors at La Serna High School, so Amber really knows this age group, giving both the senior and parents confidence that you are in safe hands.

Before Your Shoot

  • To lock in your date for your Senior Portrait shoot, you will need to choose and pay your Session Fee. Once we nail down a date, I will send you a Paypal invoice to pay for your session fee online or your parents can send me a check. Your Session Fee includes a pre-consultation, a fancy Welcome Packet, the photo shoot and in-person viewing session. You can also read more about the Session Types on the Pricing Page.
  • I will send you a secret link to my Client Lounge, which is filled with all sorts of things to get you ready for the big day. You will find links to a Senior Look Book, a What to Wear Guide, a Model Release (so I can post your pretty pics to Instagram) and a Portrait Agreement.
  • In the Client Lounge, you will also find a link to my Portrait Collections. Look over all the collections, a la carte options and fun custom products I can make for you. I offer 8 x 10 custom gift prints starting at $65 and my portrait collections begin at $1000. The average Amber Fox Photographer client invests $1,500-$2,500 in their custom photography. Please email me at for more detailed pricing.
  • Fill out the fun Senior Portrait Questionnaire to help me learn more about you, so we can decide on the style of your shoot and location. The questions include ones like, are you an urban sort of girl? Or do you envision standing in a field of flowers?
  • What to Wear is always the most asked question before our senior’s shoot. I provide a lengthy 70 page what to wear guide to help you choose the perfect and most flattering outfits. With that, we suggest bringing 4-5 different outfits, lots of accessories, jackets, a dressy outfit, something more casual and an outfit you feel absolutely gorgeous in.
  • A part of our most popular Always Foxy session fee includes professional hair and makeup styling at the fabulous Salon Lujon. My stylists will make you look and feel beautiful, giving you the confidence to be photographed for two hours. My stylists have years of experience and know how to not apply too much makeup so you no longer look like yourself, but enough to be camera ready and looking gorgeous.
  • Make sure your nails and toes are looking adorable. We suggest neutral colors or a French tip, so your nails don’t distract from your gorgeous face.
  • Like Amber Fox Photographer on Facebook & Follow us on Instagram  & Twitter. I always post sneak peeks from my shoots, so you want to follow me @amberfox and if you post any pics, please tag me @amberfox & #amberfoxphoto.

During Your Shoot

  • I will start off the shoot with a posing lesson and give you tips on how to stand, where to put your hands and essentially how you can look your best. Throughout the entire shoot, I am leading you through a series of poses that will allow you look good, be at ease and be completely natural in front of the camera. I know you are nervous, so I do everything I can to make you relax and trust me.
  • Your mom or dad has to accompany you on the shoot. Since you are a minor, I feel more comfortable with a parent being with us on the shoot. Plus the whole experience is really exciting and we want your parents to be a part of that. It’s fun for them to see you shine.
  • We have FUN! The whole photo shoot I am telling you how gorgeous you are and making you laugh, so after two hours of compliments and giggling, you walk away feeling beautiful and wanting to do it all over again.
  • All of our shoot locations are typically in nature or in an urban setting, so there is no bathroom available for outfit changes. Come prepared to change in your car.
  • If you decided to go with our most popular session type, the shoot typically lasts 2 hours. I seriously have so much fun when I am taking your photos, that I can’t stop clicking!
  • At the end of the shoot, we will set a date for your In-person Viewing called a Premier Session. It typically takes me about a week to retouch and prepare your images, so the date is set for about 10 days after your shoot.


After your shoot

  • Shortly after the shoot, we will post a Sneak Peek of one of my favorite photos or a behind the scenes shot.
  • For Your session premier, I will go over to your home and together we look at all your gorgeous images and you get to see and touch all the fabulous products I offer. I help you select the perfect photos and fine art products for you to remember this special time in your life.
  • With my most popular session type, I typically show my clients anywhere from 40-60 photos that are edited, retouched and made perfect.
  • I will blog your gorgeous session and post a bunch of your favorite images to Facebook & Instagram.
  • Once you place your order and approve of the album design (if you order one), your custom photography products will arrive in 3-4 weeks.
  • Write a fabulous testimonial so I can share your wonderful experience on my website.
