My school has a contract photographer for Senior portraits, do I have a choice?
Discount school picture companies pay a commission to the schools who hire them. That's fine for the yearbook, but for the really important pictures you give to family and friends, the wallets you put in your invitations and, of course, your portfolio or album, seniors who want the best come to Lucketts, for quality, variety, and service.
What's the session like?
In one word- FUN! Most people are a little nervous at first- that's normal. In no time you'll feel completely at ease. Our photography style is easy and stress free. To make your session even more enjoyable we can plug in your ipod or play a couple of your favorite CDs. You can also bring your parent or a best friend along to help you choose your favorite proofs. We'll look at your pictures as we go and at the end of the session you'll have ONLY the pictures you love and none that you don't!!!
Can I take pictures with my boyfriend/girlfriend, pet, car, etc...?
Bring whatever and whomever you want. You'll have a huge dressing room with plenty of space. We'll even provide you a list of suggestions for things you can bring. Remember, you'll never be a senior again and we want your senior pictures to be all about you at this special time in your life!
Can I get black & white pictures?
Of course! The black & whites at Lucketts have a look you won't find anywhere else. They have the perfect contrast that give your images a high fashion quality other studios don't know how to create. You can get color, B/W, antique sepia, or any color tint you want FREE on any print you order!
How long until I see my proofs?
You'll take hundreds of images during your session, and then narrow it down to your favorite 20-50 (depending on the session you choose) proofs with the help of the photographer. Those images will be presented completely retouched in your online proofing gallery about one week after your session. We'll give you a password to share with family and friends!
Do my Senior Portraits include retouching?
Your prints are made using the highest quality standards available. Every one of your portraits created at Luckett Portrait Studio is enhanced by professional artists at no additional cost to you. Special requests in regards to retouching will incur an additional charge per image. Please call us ahead of time with any questions or concerns.
How much will it cost?
At Lucketts we have something to fit almost everyone's needs. The average investment runs about $800-$1700, although some people spend up to several thousand dollars. Payments are staggered and we accept all major credit cards, cash, or checks.
What if I don't like them?
We are definitely not your yearbook photographer. You will love every one of your images from Lucketts, 100% guaranteed! You can never be disappointed with your photographs at Lucketts because you see every picture we take while you are here and you choose only the ones you love. Only the shots with your best angles, best expressions, and best poses will ever be made into proofs. At Luckett Portrait Studio we give you a complete variety of images to choose from so you'll have every style you want.

Guys should bring a variety of tops, polos, button ups, jackets, hoodies and bottoms, jeans, khakis and shorts. Bring clothing with different colors, whatever helps you express yourelf. It's ok to bring your everyday clothes for those casual looks. But don't be afraid to go out and get yourself a nice button up. Shoes will show in some of your pictures so don't forget about your feet!
