All portraits are done at the location of your choosing. In the Uhrichsville/New Philadelphia area, popular locations are Dover Park, New Philly Park, or Tappan Lake. For an extra charge of $20 (for travel and because the session is longer), portraits can be done at Dundee Falls. In the St. Clairsville area, popular chooses are the St. Clairsville Bike Trail, the Covered Bridge (by OUE and Belmont Tech), on or around Main Street, or the old Blaine Bridge. For an extra charge of $20, Oglebay Park also has many locations.
All Sessions are by appointment only. Daytime, evening, and some Saturdays appointments are usually available.
Making your appointment
Appointments can be made by calling 740-391-0183. If the session is for small children, think about when they will be most coopertive (they might not be very happy to be getting there pictures taken if it's naptime or mealtime for them).
Appointments are usually scheduled at least 1-3 weeks ahead of time, but senior sessions tend to fill up quicker, especially in the fall.
Retouching (teeth whitening, blemish removal, stray hair removal, etc.) is included in the price of any picture except a proof. Proofs are only cropped and color corrected. You can make any picture in your package black and white or sepia for no extra charge.
If you must cancel, please call as soon as possible. Please let me know at least 24 hours in advance, if not sooner, so other appointments can be arranged accordingly.
All photographs taken by Moment in Time Photography are copyrighted and, by law, cannot be copied. Please respect this and realize that copying a picture that is copyrighted is the same as stealing.
What to bring
Although there is no limit to the number of outfit changes, it would serve no purpose to bring more outfits than the number of poses you plan to purchase. For example, if you were planning on purchasing package D ( a four pose package ), I would ask that you bring no more than four outfits, although 2-3 may be more than sufficient.
My suggestions on styles and colors:
For the yearbook picture, it is usually best to wear a dressier style, something less trendy and more classic.
I also suggest that you bring a variety of colors to wear. For example, even if your favorite color is blue, don’t bring four blue outfits. With more colors, a wider variety of backgrounds can be used, giving each picture a different look.
Darker colors and earth tones work well for outdoor shots.
Remember that these are merely suggestions. The ultimate decision is yours.
I always encourage seniors to bring props. Portraits taken with items that tell about your individual hobbies and interests are much more personal. For example, if you are into football, you could bring your jerseys, jacket, football, helmet, and anything else that is related to the sport. If you have won trophies and metals for your sport or hobby, bring those along with your gear. If you play music, you could bring your instrument. If you are not sure about whether or not to bring something, keep in mind that we don’t have to use it, but at least we will have the option.
