Senior Client Testimonials

I'm honored to have been chosen by our senior clients, and their parents, to be their photographer of choice to capture this

once-in-a-lifetime milestone. Here are some kind words from a few of the Seniors that I have worked with:

Carol was absolutely amazing. Reaching out to meet her, she was very patient and able to work around my schedule. She had a lot of things in place to make my senior pictures memorable. She made me feel comfortable and kept a positive energy the entire time. I love all the hard work she put in just for me. The pictures turned out amazing and all my family members and friends love them.

Eaton High School

I loved being on the model team. I had so much fun and enjoyed working with you, and your creativity with the photos. I love how my photos came out - I'm in love with them. I appreciate how the picture you took for my dads memorial with the eagle came out. That means a lot to me and my father absolutely loved it. I also love how you took a picture with my puppy before he grew t be a moose! I love everything about the team!

I was so scared and nervous to take the pictures, and I thought I was going to look ugly, but when we started taking them she told me it was going to be fine and I started feeling more comfortable and great about the situation. I had a really good photo shoot and the pictures came out so amazing, that when I seen them, I was jumping up and down with joy. She really takes pride in her work and she also had a really great attitude while taking the pictures.

Moses

Valley High School

My experience has been great. I had not got any photos done til late and time was running out, but instead of stressing me out more when I got there and met her (Carol), everything was great and I didn't feel stressed at all anymore. Super professional in her work, takes good pictures and is the best photographer I've had!

Thanks so much for everything.

I was very impressed with the level of respect! Anytime I wanted to do a pose or picture, she was very open-minded. All around an unforgettable experience!

Lukas

Frontier Academy

I found Carol through people at my high school who she had taken previous pictures for and I eventually came across her Instagram page and instantly fell in love with her craft. My photo sessions were so much fun, she had so many great ideas and also wanted my input on what photos to take. She made me laugh, smile and just enjoy my time taking these once in a lifetime pictures. Even though I couldn't see Carol in person during our photo ordering session over Zoom, she was still so excited to see our faces when we saw the final pictures. They were absolutely beautiful and my parents were crying throughout most of the ordering session LOL. I loved spending these moments with her, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking for a photographer. Thank you so much Carol!

Carol Dunnigan took amazing photos for my college graduation and she went above and beyond in so many ways. Carol made the process so fun and the finished products were GORGEOUS! She even hand delivered the ordered products and I couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out! Thank you. :)

Senior Parent Testimonials

Carol is super friendly with great suggestions and input! My daughter wanted a unique and different location and Carol came through for us! Her products are of high quality! She is very responsive to our needs and questions! What a great experience!


Pearl Augustino

Carol is an amazing professional photographer! If you want top quality photos, a fun photo session with multiple wardrobe changes, multiple locations for different backgrounds/backdrops and a variety of priceless photos to enjoy in the present and look back at for years to come, Carol is someone you will want to contact. Best decision we could have made for both of our sons Sr. Year Pictures.

Sherri Elder


Carol is amazing! All the pictures came out fantastic. I was hesitant about the process, but Carol was great to work with!

The process:

CONSULTATION & PLANNING MEETING

This is where I get to meet you and your parents in person for the first time! We'll talk about locations, what your vision is for your session, show you the product options that are available to display your final images in/on, and if we're the right fit, we'll schedule your Session and Design & Ordering Appointment!

SENIOR

SESSION

This is YOUR day! You've waited a long time for this! You've chosen your two locations, you're bringing your

favorite outfits and accessories, you may have chosen some of the props that I have for you to borrow, and now it's time to take those amazing images of you, and show you just how beautiful you are!

DESIGN & ORDERING

APPOINTMENT

The day is here! It's time for you and your parents to select your absolute must have images from your session, and to choose which products that you'd like to display them in/on, and which ones that you'd like to give to family and friends.


Warning: Sometimes the dads cry during the slideshow ;-)

ORDER

PICK-UP

I get so excited when orders come in, it's like Christmas, and then I get to experience it all over again when you open everything for the first time!!!

Your order will typically be available for pick-up 4 weeks after your Design & Ordering Appointment - I'll call to schedule a pick-up time.

FAQ's

How far in advance do we need to book our portrait session?

We recommend booking your portrait session as early as possible to secure your preferred date. Popular dates, especially the weekends, tend to get reserved quickly. Ideally, you should contact me at least 3 months in advance to ensure availability. I understand that sometimes plans come together on shorter notice, and I'll do my best to accommodate last-minute bookings whenever possible.

Can we request specific poses or styles for our portrait session?

Absolutely! I encourage my clients to share their vision and preferences with me. Before your session, we'll have a consultation to discuss your ideas, style, and anything specific that you have in mind. I believe in tailoring my photography to your unique needs - because YOU ARE UNIQUE - ensuring that the final results reflect who YOU are.

What about the weather?

We are at Mother Nature's mercy. I keep an eye on the weather starting a week out, and look daily. If it looks to be bad, I will contact you the day before to reschedule.

What is a typical turnaround time from our Design & Ordering Appointment to when we receive our product order?

My standard turnaround time for you to pick up your product order is typically 4 weeks. This includes my professional lab turnaround time, and I prioritize quality in my post-production process, to ensure each product meets my high standards before you pick it up. If you have any specific deadlines or urgent requests, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate them.

Do you offer digital files?

I do! They are available in my top 2 Designer Collections. What I find is that clients don't really want full resolution digitals, they just want social media sized files to share with family and friends on their social media. I offer those too!

What can I expect my investment to be?

Carol Dunnigan Photography is a full service photographer. I'll help you from the consultation, to the session, to the Design & Ordering Appointment with image and product selections. All clients are charged a booking/session fee at their consultation. Investments for Designer Collections can range from 500-4000 or more, depending on what selections you make during your Design & Ordering Appointment. I offer a la carte pricing, and will help you along the way to choose which option(s) are best for your family.
