This chapter is an overview of the types of sessions we photograph and our software tools that help us manage our work.
SRP Session Types
Mini Session – this is typically a 10 minute session where we strive to capture 10-15 unique images. Typically this session is conducted on our sets, but could be outside if the school has a facility with appropriate grounds. We require parents to pre-register for this type session.
Campus Candids Session — This is a quick session of 1-3 minutes, usually outside, where we strive to capture at least 3 unique and beautiful images. Typically this session is done in the school setting without studio backdrops or props.
Cap and Gown — 1-3 minute session where we strive to capture 3-6 unique images of each child in their cap and gown.
Spoiled Rotten Custom Session — Session done for one family (not at a school).
Family Portrait Days — Mini sessions (usually on a Saturday) where anyone can sign up to be photographed. This session is typically photographed at the end of a season on the set. This session can also be used as a “make-up” session.
Fundraising Session — A family portrait day done for a particular organization — we typically donate 10% of our profits to the organization OR sell certificates for the session and the organization keeps the proceeds from the certificate sales.
Charity Events — Same as a fundraising session, but with all the proceeds donated to a charity.
At SRP, there are many steps that we take to deliver beautiful portraits to parents. Below is just a quick overview of the steps we go through to produce our portraits. Each step is discussed in detail later in the ops manual. This is a high-level overview.
