Miraflor Photography Graduation & Senior Portraits 2019

Graduation Portrait Sessions

Hello! Thanks for taking a look at my graduation portrait page. You must be excited to graduate and want to take pictures to show to your friends and family. I graduated from UC Irvine and ended up taking my own grad portraits with a tripod. Since then, others have asked me to take their grad photos for them. I hope to take great portraits for you while you celebrate the milestone of college graduation. I have several packages available down below that you can choose from. If you’d like a custom package, let me know and we can plan it out.

I am currently based in Los Angeles and Orange County but am willing to travel to take photographs! Schools that I have taken portraits at have been:

  • California State University, Long Beach (CSULB)

  • California State University, Fullerton (CSUF)

  • California State University, Northridge (CSUN)

  • California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (CPP)

  • Chapman University

    • We will be taking individual portrait pictures of you during this session.

    • If you decide to do a group photo session with friends, we will be taking individual photos of each member of your group as well as group pictures.

    • A 1 to 2 person photo session will run about 1 to 1.5 hours or less.

    • A 3+ group photo session might run about 2 to 2.5 hours or less.

Package B:

Studio Style Backdrop Session

$275 PER Graduate

Package B is for a Studio Backdrop Photo Session

  • I have a mobile portrait photoshoot setup where I can quickly set up a backdrop and studio lights.

  • During our photo session, we will take pictures of you with your cap and gown, and any other props that you bring to the shoot.

  • We can also take photos of you in your professional attire if you were looking to updated your LinkedIn profile picture.

  • Unfortunately, I do not have a studio to take pictures in at the moment. If you have a room big enough for me to set up my equipment, I can go to your location and take pictures over there.

    • I’ve taken studio style portraits in living rooms, garages, or basically anywhere that has some space.

  • Set up time usually takes me around 35 to 45 minutes & we'll be right on our way to taking some great pictures.

  • This session will only take about 1 to 1.5 hours or less.

  • I do not have a limit on how many photos I deliver to you after our photo session. For studio style photos, I spend extra time on edits to make sure you look your best! I typically deliver around 15+ images for this session.

*25% Retainer Required Upon Booking*



Retainer & Payment

  • Client shall pay a retainer equal to 25% of their selected photoshoot package to secure the services and products specified. The final balance must be paid in full the day of the event.  The retainer shall be applied to reduce the total balance of the package. If the final balance is not paid, Photographer will not make any images available for viewing until the balance is paid in full, and reserves the right to enforce the terms of the Contract against the Client for purpose of obtaining payment.

  • In the extremely unlikely event of severe personal illness or other extreme acts of nature beyond the control of the Photographer which precludes Photographer from performing the duties of coverage, Photographer will refund the client all monies paid, including the retainer.

Cancellations or Postponement

  • If Client should cancel the event for any reason, the retainer will not be refunded. If Client wishes to postpone or otherwise change the Event date, Client must first submit a written release to Photographer bearing the original contracted date, which will void the contract. Thereafter, if the Photographer is available for the desired new date, Photographer and Client will execute a new contract, and all monies paid will transfer to the new date. The new date must be within six (6) months of the original date or the new contract will be subject to Photographer’s then current rates. If the Photographer is unavailable on the new date, the Contract will be cancelled and the retainer will not be refunded.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. I need a cap and gown!

  • I have an extra cap and gown available if you need one for our photo session. If you need to borrow one, just let me know and I’ll bring it to our photoshoot.

  • If we have our session before you receive your cap and gown, I recommend borrowing a cap and gown from a friend that has already graduated! This works out a lot of the time.

  • Make sure to bring any sashes or tassels that you would like to use during the photoshoot.

2. What exactly do you do after our photoshoot session?

  • After our photo session, I’ll start going through all of the photos we took and start editing.

  • Final edits of our photo session will be uploaded onto an online photo gallery where you can download all of the high resolution files for you to keep and have printed at your location of choice.

3. What is your turn around time for you to finish editing our photoshoot session?

  • After our shoot, it will take me at least 1 - 1.5 weeks, or sooner in order for me to completely edit all of the photos. I’ll have them ready for you for download from an online gallery.

4. Do you provide prints?

  • I currently do not provide prints at this time. However, once you download the files from our shoot, I recommend having them printed at a professional photo lab like Bay Photo Lab. You can find their site here: https://www.bayphoto.com/

5. How many photos do you deliver?

  • I currently do not have a limit on how many photos I deliver to you after our photo session. I typically deliver over 75+ photos per photo session.

6. Can I bring props to the shoot?

  • Yes! You are more than welcome to bring props to our photo session.

  • Popping champagne bottles is a popular option. If you haven’t popped a champagne bottle before, I highly recommend practicing on one or two bottles prior to our photoshoot. It’s harder than it looks!

  • Confetti is also a popular option to use during a photoshoot. However, if you’d like to be more eco-friendly, bubbles are an awesome alternative. You can also look up biodegradable confetti and use that at our photoshoot.
