We used to have a completely separate session for Special Effects, but with digital we don't have to. We have a lot of fun creating something different. Sometimes it's adding your baby photo with your senior portrait. We also can add some sports photos that your family has taken of you in action or from your local newspaper. Or looking larger than life sitting on your small helmet or next to the football stadium at Carson Park. Anything is possible. Take a look at our Special Effects gallery for a few ideas of what we can do.
We have a large variety of backgrounds that will work with high school seniors, families, children, pets, etc. If you would like to take a look at what we have, click on Backgounds. This may not include some newer backgrounds that we have added.
