KLS Photography, Eugene, Oregon

Your senior year is just around the corner and that means senior pictures are fast approaching! You may be wondering, “Why should I hire a professional photographer when I could do it myself?” Everyone has a phone that takes pretty cool pictures. Or maybe you have a family member or friend that is dabbles in photography and you think they could just take your photos. But the truth is that not everyone with a camera takes good photos! There are many things that a professional photographer can offer that your friend with a camera can’t.

Equipment! Professional photographers use the best equipment. Images taken on an iPhone or an entry level digital camera are not of fantastic quality. Have you looked back at the images you took a few years ago on your iPhone? Most likely they are a little grainy and low quality. We have invested in top level equipment to make sure we produce high quality images that can be printed even in large format products. Hiring a pro is the best way to ensure that your images will be the best quality for years to come.

The experience! Senior pictures are a once in a lifetime experience — you will never be 18 again! We feel there is more to senior pictures than just taking a few pictures. That’s why we like to meet for an in-person consultation so we can get to know you and what type of photo session you are dreaming of! Traditional and classic, glamorous and editorial, candid and joyful, or a combination of all styles. Do you want to go to a secluded park or river, go downtown for an urban shoot, or go to several of your favorite locations? Do you have your outfits all planned and figured out, or do you want to look through our style closet and add in some of our awesome designs? This is your year, your photo session, and it should be all about you!

Expertise! Senior photographers are experienced and know how to capture the best images. We know how to use all those buttons on the back of our camera and use the best depth of field to make sure you are the focus of every picture. We have heard our clients say so many times, “I don’t know how to pose.” Posing is our job! You won’t have to worry about a thing. We have studied light and now how to use angles to make you look your best. A professional photographer can be a night and day difference in how much you love your photographs.

Natural editing! A professional photographer knows how to edit photos the right way. We’ve all seen those over-edited plastic looking photographs or those trendy photo filters that are soon out of style. We at KLS start by getting the picture right in-camera! Then we go through the 500+ images from your photoshoot and pick out the very best ones (no eyes half open!) that will be in your gallery. Next, we take every selected images into our professional Adobe software where we apply our signature KLS edit that includes color correction, adjusting contrast, remove blemishes and removing background distractions. Your images will showcase your beauty and the edit will be natural never over-retouched. We want you to look like you!

Professional Products! Professional photographers offer the best products from high resolution digital images to beautiful portrait art. So, whether you want to share your images on social media or get a custom 36×48″ canvas, you can be assured we can get if for you. We use the best professional print labs in the country and we check all images with a fine-tooth comb before we give them to you. These are memories you will cherish for years. Our printed products you will want to share with your friends and keep forever.

Classic, beautiful and sweet is how we would describe Emily. Emily is one of the sweetest young ladies we have met. We loved getting to know her during the time we spent with her. After graduating from high school, she is going to college to become a nurse. We just know she is going to be the absolute best and most caring nurse!

Emily chose to divide her senior session into two locations over two days....
