"We booked James for a family portrait session and we couldn't be happier with the entire experience. Having your photo taken can often feel awkward but James helped us let our guard down and feel comfortable. James was great with our almost 2-year old son, as well. He was incredibly patient with him and did a great job making my son laugh and look at the camera. My wife and I were really impressed. Not only did the photo shoot go better than expected, but our photos were absolutely stunning! After sharing many of them online I had so many people tell me how much they liked them. Months later, I still have people telling me they saw my family photos and were blown away by them. My wife and I couldn't agree more."
"We are incredibly grateful to have found James Thomas Long photography! James is so good at what he does. He has photographed our family since we had our first child, and now our third. He uses outdoor lighting and landscape to bring nature's beauty into our family photos. We have found this to be a lasting and positive investment, as we have photography and beautiful wall canvases to cherish for years to come. We recommend him wholeheartedly."
"James has been photographing our family every year for the last 5 years and we can’t imagine hiring anyone else. Our sessions with James have become something we all look forward to each and every year. He is patient, so great with the kids, and always truly amazes us with what he is able to capture. Every year, our images are absolutely stunning! We are so very glad we found him to create these beautiful memories for our family. From planning the session all the way through receiving our images and prints, I always know we are in good hands. It is absolutely wonderful to actually see my kids grow in the beautiful canvases James created for us that we now have displayed in our home. I’m so glad that we do this every year and look forward to our next session later this summer!"
1. Will you help me choose a location?
YES! I know so many amazing locations in the Puget Sound! I'll help find the perfect spot for you, based on your interests and input! And I'm always happy to explore new locations if you have something in mind!
2. What is the best time of year for senior portraits?
All of the seasons have something beautiful to offer, whether it's the green bloom of spring, the warmth of summer, the beautiful colors of fall, or the moodiness of winter. Most seniors book sessions for the summer before or the fall of their senior year, both of which are typically very busy times, so I recommend booking early before spaces in the fall fill up!
4. What is the best time of day for my senior session?
Sunset!!! And the hour just before sunset (called golden hour). Natural light is just so much better closer to sunset, so I really recommend avoiding doing any kind of portraits anywhere close to midday. This is also the reason that I photograph just one session on a given day - to ensure you get the best light possible for your session! I typically schedule all sessions to start about 2 hour before sunset (depending a little on location) so that we finish at sunset!
5. What if it rains?
I love photographing moody lighting and dramatic skies. And rainy days offer some of the best moody PNW lighting there is! BUT, we don't want to get drenched out there either, so we'll keep an eye on the forecast and if it looks pretty wet, we'll reschedule your session. I want you to have an amazing experience, so I'm happy to be flexible!
6. Can I bring pets to the session?
Absolutely! Pets are certainly welcome and are a great way to add some playful fun to your session!
7. Do you offer digital files? What about the yearbook?
YES! You'll get a file sized for social media of every print you purchase. And, for seniors, if you spend $500 or more on prints, you get to choose some hi-resolution digital files as well, which you can absolutely use for the yearbook!
8. Can I bring an outfit change or two?
Absolutely! Bring as many outfits as you like! I also bring along a collapsible changing tent that is great if we won't be near a car or bathroom. Most seniors typically bring along one additional outfit, but you are welcome to bring more, including accessories like jackets, hats, etc.!
