No School like the Old School

What better place to take senior pictures than the abandoned elementary school that started your educational career?  Kralltown Elementary was a tiny school out in the rural area between East Berlin and Dillsburg where most members of my family, including Christina, had attended at some part of their K-5 years.  End result: a seriously cool senior session!

Summertime is for Seniors!

Along with weddings, our summers are filled with intermingling senior portrait sessions during the week!  One of our most popular and requested locations is Hershey Hotel!  With the friendly staff and beautifully manicured gardens, how can we say no?  Here’s a few from Amy’s Senior Session!

>Hunter’s Senior Shoot

>I love weddings. They are amazing, tons of fun, and definitely my passion, however there is something special that can be created for portait sessions. With portaits you’re working one-on-one and there is ample time to try new things including creative lighting techniques.

One of my favorite portrait sessions are Seniors. They’re always willing to do anything for a good shot, hence Hunter. Hey Hunter.. can you climb up in this huge truck.. how about the silo.. can you climb that.. see that old milk truck.. let’s get you up there too. I think all those climbing for creativity skills paid off! You be the judge;-)

>MMP’s Senior Portrait Special for 2009

>

In my opinion, nothing is worse than paying too much for a cookie cutter photo session with lukewarm prints to show for it! We’ve done our research and again, will remain stuck to our passion of providing great photographs for all, regardless of budget, unlike our friendly local competitors! Three of the top local cookie cutter photo studios are offering seriously overpriced senior packages ranging from the minimalistic shoot of one pose and sixteen prints for over $100 dollars (not including the sitting fee mind you) to the outrageous “premium” package (with limitations of course) for only $475 dollars!

So here at MMP we’ve accepted the challenge and are extending a senior portrait package that exceeds in both price and comparison. Here’s what the premium package at Big Al’s* (Name changed to protect the innocent) Photography located in Central PA, consists of for your hard earned $475:

>Family Ties

>I love my family. Not only because they call me when they need photo’s done but because I can ask them to do pretty much anything for the sake of a beautiful photo and they graciously comply! My oldest cousin Christina needed some shots done for her mother showcasing her recent accomplishments taken home from a baton competition. So of course this turned into a semi-looking senior portrait session even though.. well… she’s only 15.. and not yet a senior. These were taken at my favorite backdrop, the family farm in East Berlin. Enjoy!
