Frequently Asked Questions
What does custom boutique photography mean?
To me, custom photography means so many things! For starters, it means that each individual session is tailored towards my client for that session. It means spend time communicating with clients and answering emails, helping out outfit choices, location scouting, consistent editing, and offering high quality prints & product. I strive to provide exceptional customer service and a memorable experience from the initial contact to putting the prints in your hand.
How long have you been in business?
Jukebox Photography has been in business since 2011.
What is your style?
I coach and direct my clients during their session to make sure they look their best in any specific circumstance. The client is trusting me to find and direct the best images I can. I also strongly believe in the importance of a positive senior experience. My number one goal is to interpret and create beautiful imagery for you for a lifetime, BUT my number two goal is to make the journey to acquiring that final product an amazingly fun one. I love to laugh and make you laugh and be REAL and fun. I will poke fun with you and I expect you to poke fun at me.
Do you have a studio?
I have an office head quarters in Champaign, IL . I enjoy editing and meeting clients here but rarely use it for shooting purpose.
Do you offer studio photography?
No, studio photography is not my style. I always shoot on location and work primarily with natural light. Most of my sessions take place an hour after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset for best natural lighting.
Do you offer hair and make-up for High School Senior photography?
Make-up is an important part of your photo session. Not only does it give a flawless finish, but it also helps highlights eyes, cheeks and lips. We highly recommend that you have your make-up professionally done. Even if you don’t normally wear make-up, our make-up artists can make you look naturally beautiful. We have worked with these make-up artists for a long time and have seen the great work they can do! Here you can find a list of our recommended make-up artists
When should I book my senior session?
I love capturing seniors all year round, but the seasons are popular in this order Fall, Spring, Summer, Winter. Each season gives a different look. I personally love summer when everything is lush and colorful.
What does ‘on location’ mean?
This simply means that we choose the location of your session together based on your style and personality. We can go downtown, to the park, to the gardens, or even to your own home or neighborhood. The possibilities are endless.
What if it rains on my session day?
In the event of bad weather, we will keep in touch throughout the day. We will come up with a date to reschedule if needed. There is no charge for reschedule a shoot in these instances. Life happens and I want to be as accommodating as possible.

How much are prints?
Print pricing varies. There are tons of product for you to choose from and no minimum order required. Print pricing starts at $55. Please contact me for a full price list.
When do we get to see our images?
After your gorgeous photos are done being edited, we’ll schedule a time for you to come back to the studio to view your images. Seeing your images on a big screen TV is just amazing! Part of your costume experience includes a one on one viewing/ordering appointment with your photographer. During the viewing session, we go through the images together sorting them into “yes” “maybe” and “no” categories until you have chosen the prints that you wish to order. These appointments are necessary in order for the client and photographer to communicate, view product samples and to ensure that you, as the client, acquire everything on your wish list! These appointments are usually 2-4 weeks after your session. Feel free to invited family and friends to your preview to take a look at all the fabulous senior products you will get to order! Once we’ve gone through all the drool worthy products, you’ll pick your faves and place your order at that time. In about 2-4 weeks your custom heirloom products will be ready to enjoy!
