Alling Photography specializes in Michigan senior pictures all over the Southeastern Michigan area, from Detroit to Bloomfield Hills and outlying areas in and around Livingston County, including Brighton, Pinckney, Howell, Milford, Hartland and South Lyon. We have also this past year extended the area included for our Michigan senior pictures to also include areas like Kalamazoo and even Muskegon on designated dates on the west side of the state at no additional charge. Senior Photography is our main business and there is nothing we enjoy more! We can take your pictures on location both indoors and outdoors or you can have your senior pictures taken in the comfort of our studio in Brighton, Michigan. We offer two types of senior portrait sessions to our high school seniors as well as an option to have a yearbook picture taken without a session, so please read on below:
The “SENIOR SESSION” – Regular price $250, but if you get your senior session scheduled on our calendar for any date summer or fall 2018, by July 15, 2018, you will receive a $25 discount making your session only $225, or you can pay the full price for your session and we will donate $40 to U CAN-CER VIVE Foundation where 100% of the proceeds benefit cancer research in Michigan, and you will still get your free 8×10.
Senior Session lasts up to 2 hours and gives you a fun photo shoot experience for your senior portraits that will last a lifetime! The most common comment we get from seniors after a senior session is, “This was a lot more fun than I thought it would be!” And the most common comment from parents after seeing the pictures is, “There are so many great pictures, it is almost impossible to choose just a few.” The senior session includes:
A full 2 hour outdoor/indoor session with a professional photographer at the location of choice
50 or more images to choose from
One free 8×10 in the pose of choice
At least 2 images posted to facebook/Instagram (only if you choose)
A retouched, blemish free, yearbook picture submitted directly to your school
An ordering consult and online photo gallery for easy sharing and ordering. The online gallery will be posted for 2 weeks allowing you all that time to choose and place your final order.
A free digital mobile device album upload of all of the portraits that you purchase a 5×7 or larger print (this includes images of the wallets you purchase because you get them in sets of 8). These images are not large enough or high enough resolution to print, but once the app is uploaded, the album can be accessed anytime on your smart phone, even without internet access, and it can be shared with anyone via social media or to upload to their phone, tablet or computer as well!
Our senior sessions have very few limitations. You choose the location (we are happy to give suggestions) or you can have your senior pictures taken in the comfort of our studio or a little of both. Every Senior Session can last as short or as long as the senior wants up to 2 hours, so feel free to bring all the outfit changes, accessories, props, pets, etc… that you want. Remember this session is all about you, who you are and even who you want to be!
If you want a traditional style portrait taken for your yearbook, that is a FREE service that is included in the Senior Session. Your traditional background, blemish free, touched up, head and shoulders style yearbook picture will be prepared to your schools specifications and submitted directly to your school. – This can be taken either at the beginning or end of your senior picture session. (Each senior is responsible to provide photographer with yearbook specifications and pictures must be taken at least 2 weeks prior to yearbook deadline to assure timely submission-extra charge may apply for rush submission).
Morning, late afternoon or evening sessions are available Monday-Saturday. No sessions are scheduled on Sundays. Our portraits and products are ordered through a variety of companies whose color and quality are always outstanding and we stand by our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. When you book a session with us you are not locking yourself into purchasing a specific package or into spending a certain amount on portraiture. There is no minimum purchase of pictures required and all prices include blemish removal. Prints start at $16 for a sheet of 8 dye-cut wallets, $19 for a 5×7 and $30 for an 8×10. Besides high quality studio prints with the classic luster finish, we also offer metallic finish prints, proof books, printed senior albums, digital senior albums that can be uploaded to mobile devices and shared on social media sites, mounted & framed portraiture, standouts, metal prints, block wraps, gallery wraps and we have our own graphic designers to custom design graduation announcements/invitations and beautiful composites. Choosing a photographer is all about the work so take some time to look at our senior portfolio.
FYI, FOR THOSE WHO GO TO A SCHOOL WITH A “PREFERRED PHOTOGRAPHER” FOR YEARBOOK PICTURES: IT IS NOT WITHIN YOUR SCHOOLS RIGHTS TO PROHIBIT YOU FROM SUBMITTING YOUR YEARBOOK PICTURE AS LONG AS IT MEETS THEIR SCHOOL SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE YEARBOOK. TO DO SO WOULD BE INFRINGING UPON YOUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS. IF YOU CAN GET THE SPECIFICATIONS FROM YOUR YEARBOOK ADVISER, WE CAN SUBMIT YOUR YEARBOOK PICTURE DIRECTLY TO YOUR HIGH SCHOOL FOR YOU, OR IF YOU DON’T WANT TO CAUSE ANY FRICTION, BUT LOVE OUR PHOTOGRAPHY, YOU CAN HAVE YOUR “YEARBOOK ONLY” PICTURE DONE BY THE SCHOOLS “PREFERRED PHOTOGRAPHER” AND HAVE US TAKE THE REST OF YOUR PICTURES.
Special discounts for all seniors who book their “Senior Session” with a friend. If you book your “Senior Session” together with a friend, you will each get a $25 voucher towards your senior picture order and booking together does NOT mean you have to share your session. The two sessions can be booked back to back allowing the friends the opportunity to have a few pictures taken together at the end and beginning of their two sessions. What a wonderful keepsake that could be (this special may not be combined with any other special).
“SIMPLE INDOOR SENIOR PICTURES” (this session is only available at our indoor studio in Brighton) – $100
This session is perfect for the senior who really isn’t interested in taking a lot of senior pictures, but wants a few indoor images to choose from. This session takes less than 40 minutes and will be done with the seniors choice of either a white or black background, in one outfit, to provide the senior with full length, 3/4 length, as well as close up shots to choose from. (it’s no problem bringing varied accessories to add to your one outfit [yearbook pic can be taken in a different shirt/dress]) You will be provided with at least 15 images as well as your yearbook picture to choose from during your preview/ordering consultation where you will be able to place your order that day.
If you want a traditional style portrait taken for your yearbook, that is a FREE service that is included with the Simple Indoor Senior Pictures. Your traditional, blemish free, touched up, head and shoulders style yearbook picture will be prepared to your schools specifications and submitted directly to your high school (Each senior is responsible to provide photographer with yearbook specifications and pictures must be taken at least 2 weeks prior to yearbook deadline to assure timely submission-extra charge may apply for rush submission).
