Our goal is to capture your best side strait out of the camera so we suggest you review your final files before ordering this package as most clients love the our photos without retouching. While basic post processing like color adjusting is included in your photo package, we offer our popular magazine-quality editing skills. We always edit per customer's specific request, options include (but aren't limited to):
-Basic Face and Body Blemish removal
-Skin softening where needed
-Subtle and natural waist/curves/body sliming and/or enhancement
-Male hair line enhancement
-Adding volume to hair
-Removal of tags or other wardrobe enhancements
-Altering background image
If you decide you'd like these retouching services, simply email us a list of your favorite file #s along with the specific retouching requests and we'll get started! We also offer our very popular in-person editing sessions (at no extra cost), you can direct and watch while your photos are edited and most of the time the final files are emailed to you before you even leave the studio! Editing sessions that are not in person require a 2-3 week turnaround time - but always feel free to ask for your files rushed if they're needed sooner!
$50 for the first photo edit
$90 per hour for additional edits (typical photo edits take 10-45 minutes depending on complexity of request)
Rushes available for $49+
OUR SENIOR PORTRAIT PROCESS
CONSULTATION - Our Senior Portrait sessions begin with a free phone consultation to discuss your Senior Portrait vision. We want to capture what's most important to you and reflects your personality during this special time! Wether you're into sports, art, reading, nature, dance - whatever your hobbies and interests are, we'd like to get natural photos of you that capture your passions. After discussing locations, outfits and the theme, we'll pick a time and day that's convenient.
BOOKING - After your free phone consultation, to reserve your spot on your preferred day and time, you'll pay your deposit on our BOOK page through a secure online check out system.
PHOTOSHOOT DAY - We recommend arriving about 15 minutes early the day of your Senior Portrait shoot, already in your first outfit (unless it will wrinkle - then plan on changing in the car unless there's a bathroom on site). It's important to be dressed and ready as we may be targeting a specific time of day for the perfect light. After a short introduction to touch base we'll begin the shoot. The first look will take about 15-25 minutes and then you'll change into your second outfit in the car/ nearby bathroom (unless we've packed it for a hike to a waterfall for example - then a large tree may serve as your dressing room!). After the second shoot we'll head back to the car and discuss when you can expect to see your amazing Senior Portraits!
DELIVERY OF PHOTOS & EDITING/ RETOUCHING - We deliver your unbranded and copyright-free Senior Portraits to you digitally in a compressed folder through a Dropbox link via email - typically within 2-3 weeks. You simply click on the link (just NOT with a mobile device - as the files are large high resolution photos) and download them for your use! They're ready for printing when they're delivered unless you desire retouching and further editing. We pride ourselves on capturing the most flattering angles with beautiful light and poses, but we understand that sometimes blemishes happen! So we offer Photoshop and Retouching services starting at $50 (see the Editing Package details above). If you desire those services, we typically return the retouched photos within 2-3 weeks, but offer rushes for +$49 if needed.
ALBUM DESIGN - If you want to design and order an album yourself - the images you receive will be full resolution and unbranded - ready for any use! Don't want to bother with uploading and designing and album? No problem. We offer custom album designs, from the photo album website of your choice! Just give us the login/ password to your favorite Photo Product site like Shutterfly, Snapfish, Mixbook, Picaboo (or the many other's) and we'll upload and design it for you for $60/hour. Then you login, review our design and order it directly! No up-charging for albums with Liza Sue Productions. Want help ordering prints? We also offer technical help with uploading and ordering prints for $60/hour (minimum $60).

Our creative ideas are limitless and we're happy to work with your vision or help you come up with something unforgettable!
WHAT DO I WEAR TO MY SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION?
We recommend you where something that really represents YOU! Maybe a sun dress and for your second look something more casual like jeans and a dressy top. Or a suit/tie and jeans and t-shirt. Other ideas include theatrical gowns, dance costumes, cap & gown, uniforms and sports wear, vintage inspired clothing, tuxes, dresses - whatever sounds fun to you! With our basic package we offer two looks, but are always happy to add on more for an additional fee.
WHAT CITIES DO YOU OFFER SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSIONS IN?
We are centrally located between Akron and Cleveland in Richfield, Ohio. While we are very familiar with the Richfield, Peninsula and Cuyahoga Valley National Park areas we've also traveled to some amazing photography locations on both the West and East side of Cleveland including Chesterland, Mentor, Solon, Strongsville, Avon, Aurora, North Royalton, Lakewood and even as far south as Canton along with many other cities in North East Ohio. We don't charge extra for traveling anywhere within a 30 minute drive of Richfield Ohio, but are always happy to go further for a travel fee.
WHEN WILL I GET MY SENIOR PORTRAITS BACK?
Our turn around time is typically 2-3 weeks. Need them faster? No worries! Orders can be rushed for $49 in most cases.
WHAT LOCATIONS DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR SHOOTING SENIOR PORTRAITS?
We love coming up with creative spots to capture your personality. Wether it's a field, bridge, railroad track, city scape, luxury location, rustic barn, school or track field - we'll work with you on locations and/or help you come up with something great! We also offer traditional in-studio Senior Portraits with the black velvet wrap. Our basic package includes 1 location, but we're happy to travel to multiples for an additional fee.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A SENIOR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER?
Look for someone who is upfront about what they charge and has a personality that works with you and your vision! Read reviews and check to see what others are saying. You want to be comfortable in front of the photographer, so make sure you have a consultation first, to check out their personality and ensure they're a good match.
DO I GET THE RIGHTS TO MY PHOTOS AFTER THE SHOOT?
We are proud to be one of the only studios who offers you unbranded, copyright-free photos for no additional charge! We give you a minimum of 15 images that look amazing and ready for you to print wherever you like!
DO YOU OFFER SENIOR PORTRAIT ALBUM DESIGN OR PRINTING?
While we don't offer printing (as there's hundreds of online resources now available) we do offer a unique and affordable album design service and technical support help with ordering prints if you need it. We allow you to pick your preferred site, create your own login and password - give us the login info and we upload and design the album for $60/hour (minimum $60). You then login upon completion and approve the final Senior Portrait Album design and order it directly! There's no up-charging for albums or prints like traditional studios, just $60/hour for our time.
WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY SENIOR PORTRAITS TAKEN?
Most Senior Portraits are taken the summer before your Senior year. However, if you don't need a Yearbook photo, some Seniors have them taken the spring of their Senior year. Before we pick a date for the shoot, you should check with your school about the Yearbook photo policies and deadlines.
DO YOU OFFER HAIR AND MAKEUP?
We do offer hair and makeup at our Richfield Studio for $49 each (or $89 for both hair and makeup). We offer full contouring and highlighting, false lash application and can create almost any look you like. Bring a picture with you to the session and we'll magically recreate it on you! (To keep the cost down, we ask you to bring your own foundation/ concealer and eyelashes - we recommend the $2 Elf brand from Target - and we'll provide the rest)
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME TO THE SENIOR PORTRAIT SHOOT?
You should bring your two outfits, brush, mirror and any makeup to touch up your look (unless we're doing your makeup/hair - then we'll have the touch up stuff handy and you just bring your foundation/ concealer ). If you're going to be hiking through woods, fields or water - we recommend rubber boots and a bag to carry the actual shoes in. You should also bring any special props like sports gear (if applicable), stacks of books, instruments, or whatever is meaningful to you!
HOW LONG DOES THE SENIOR SHOOT TAKE?
For our basic Senior Portrait session the photoshoot usually lasts about an hour (with about 45 minutes of shoot time and 15 minutes of prep and change time).
CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME TO THE SHOOT?
Absolutely! It's fun to have a close friend or parent who has a positive attitude and can build you up and can make you laugh! We recommend choosing someone who makes you laugh and you feel really good about yourself around. For an additional fee we also offer group sessions with your loved ones!
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD FOR THE DAY OF THE PHOTO SHOOT?
If we're scheduling an outdoor session, we'll be watching the weather closely as your day arrives and get in touch the day before to reschedule if necessary. We want the best results for your special pictures! We never charge additional for rebooking due to bad weather.
(We are located only 12 minutes from Revere High School in Richfield, Ohio)
