What to Expect


Before coming to your session, look through images and poses to find those you like. Try them out in the mirror. At your session, I will guide you, but if you have seen a pose you want to try we can do that. Bring several articles of clothing with you. Make sure they are colors you look great in, necklines that are interesting and styles to ensure you have both casual and formal looks. You can also bring jewelry. If you are a current titleholder, don’t forget your crown and sash.


On the day of your shoot, you will want to arrive with a clean, fresh face. The makeup artist provided (due to the nature of our business, you may not bring your own hair and/or makeup artist) will create a look for you based on YOU – your skin tones, your eye color, face shape, etc. Since two people are not exactly alike, no sessions are the same.

While you are in hair and make-up, I will look at your clothing and jewelry choices to decide what might look best on you. I have an expansive collection of Jim Ball Jewelry to choose from as well — we all like a little bling!

After your hair and makeup are complete, I will take a few test shots to get you comfortable in front of the camera. Depending on the location, we may shoot inside or outside. Lighting is important, and I will choose the best lighting for your look.

A parent or friend is welcomed to attend, but please keep your entourage to a minimum.

Expect to have a ton of fun, laugh a lot, have the most amazing experience and get some incredible images.


You will receive your images via dropbox.com. From this site, you can select any images you wish to have retouched. You will email me the photo numbers, and I will schedule your retouching. If you do not have a free Dropbox account, you can create one here: Dropbox.com

By an agreed upon date, I will email you your final image. Also, you will be sent a print release so you can print your images at the lab of your choice.

Thank you for choosing Goodwin Photography. I look forward to connecting with you soon!
