Q: How do I make an appointment to get my senior portraits taken?
A: All you need to do is call 757-305-9652 to make an appointment.

Q: Do my parents need to be with me while I get my photos taken?
A: No, parents are not required, they can tag along if they like but most seniors are more comfortable with a friend or 2 coming along instead.

Q: When should I schedule to get my senior session?
A: The sooner the better. It is best to have them taken the summer before your senior year starts. This is because your yearbook prints are usually due within the first month or two of the school year.

Q: What should I bring to my appointment?
A: Depending upon which sitting you have chosen, bring the number of outfits you would like to wear in your pictures. Clothes that have wild, large, or bright patterns can be distracting and take the focus away from you. Please refrain from wearing logos. Also preferably no sleeveless tops or micro mini skirts. In addition, feel free to bring whatever items you would like to bring that express who you are. For example: Sports gear/uniform/letterman’s jacket, musical instruments, pets, car/truck, etc.

Q. Can I bring my pet with me?
A: YES!!! Pets are encouraged. If you have a favorite small pet please bring it to our studio, if your pet is too large (horses for example) we will be more than happy to go on location to accommodate your animal friend. Call ahead to discuss details, and please keep in mind cats don't enjoy portraits as much as dogs.

Q. What time should I arrive for my portrait session?
A: We suggest at least 10 minutes prior to your session to get comfortable with us and the setting.

Q. What will my session be like?
A: In one word it will be FUN. We are dedicated to providing a friendly atmosphere that brings out the best true portrait of each individual.

Q. Can I bring a friend?
A: I recommend that you bring a friend to watch us create your portraits. You can even include your friend in some of YOUR images.

Q: Do you take outdoor portraits?
A: Yes. These can be done at the location of your choice.

Q: I do not live in the Hampton Roads area. Do you travel and if so, what does it cost?
A: I will travel outside of the Hampton Roads Va. The cost is at the hourly rate of $50 for travel (to and from) and if necessary, room and board for the night. This does not apply to sessions in Montgomery County NC. If you are booking in NC but outside of Montgomery County it would be hourly from Troy, NC, not VA


Q: Why do I need to fill out a contract?
A: A contract is filled out for several reasons. One is to reserve your session date on the calendar. The contract serves as a release, which allows Breezy Cranford Photography to take your picture and post on my website for viewing. It specifies exactly what Collection you are getting, the price, and all of the terms and agreements decided upon. If you are a minor and under the age of 18 a parent or guardian must sign the documents.

Q: Can I make payments or do I have to pay for my senior collection in full?
A: Yes you can make payments as long as the advance is paid in full before the proof book is ordered.

Sittings and Collections:

Q: What happens if I need/want more than my Advance covers?
A: Breezy Cranford Photography has created several collections just for seniors to choose from to maximize your advance. Additional items can be added to any order.


Q: How long does it take to get my proofs back?
A: It generally takes 3-4 weeks for your proofs to be ready for viewing. We will schedule a time to pick them up at your session.

Q: What format will my proofs be in?
A: All proofs are 4x6 in size and bound in a 5x7 spiral album. In addition, electronic proofs will be securely posted online for viewing by family and friends.

Additional Prints and Reorders:

Q: Is there a fee to reorder prints at a later time?
A: No, I do not charge a reorder fee. The cost of the prints would be charged at the current published list price at the time of the reorder.

Yearbook Pictures:

Q: How do I go about getting my yearbook picture to the school?
A: Breezy Cranford Photography will either mail or email your yearbook image to the yearbook staff/teacher by the deadline depending upon the format requested by the school.

Ambassador Programs:

Q: Do you have an ambassador program? What does it entail?
A: Yes. With the ambassador program, seniors get a complimentary 2 hour session. Proof album with all images when you refer at least 12 seniors who hold their booking. 50 Wide Screen Wallets, $5 cash referral for each paid booking, 50 referral Book marks and Favorite 5 images (web sized) on thumb drive/CD. You also receive 50% off my senior collections for your hard work. You can apply for the ambassador program between January of your junior year through August before your senior year.

Q: What are widescreen wallets?
A: They are business card size (2x3.5) are and two sided. They are printed on a card stock that has a pearl finish and are UV coated for protection. They are so neat
