Q) How much does a session cost?

A) Your session cost will consist of two parts—the sitting fee & the products you decide to purchase. The Senior Pricing Guide will be in your welcome packet and email and include the packages and a-la-carte options exclusive to Clarksville Academy.

1 → The sitting fee: This year we are offering three options for your senior portrait session!

The Yearbook Session // $150 // Includes a simple 45 minute session at the indoor studio. Formal portrait with drape or jacket/tie. Two casual looks. —— This session yields an average of 15 proofs, covering just what you need for the yearbook! 

The Farm Session // $250 // A full 90 minute session at the indoor studio and Shea’s farm. Formal portrait with drape or jacket/tie. Three casual looks with a variety of outdoor options! —— This session will start with the formal portrait in the studio and continue with casual looks at the farm – a perfect opportunity for sports/vehicles. You can expect a gallery of at least 60 proofs.

You can view an example of a Farm Session here.

Destination Session // $325 // This session is unlimited! We can shoot in as many locations and outfits as you like, after your formal portrait at the studio. —— This would be a perfect choice for the senior who wants unique looks with lots of variety. Choose from downtown Clarksville, Nashville, Marina, CA Sports Complex or any favorite spot!
