Welcome, Grad!


My #1 priority is capturing a variety of images that you LOVE!

Please read through this Welcome Guide and contact me if you have any questions whatsoever!


Meet you at the B!

I will meet you at the B at your scheduled session time, unless we have discussed a different location.

I will be one of the blondes wandering around, feel free to take a peek at what I look like here to make sure you have the right gal ☺


What to bring.

Please bring your robe, cap, tassel, & a smile! If you have any extra stoles or cords, make sure you bring those as well. ☺

Please take all your regalia out of the packaging and hang it up to let the wrinkles release at least the night before your session. I recommend steaming/ironing your regalia as well to really make sure we don’t have any wrinkles in your pics!

Feel free to bring anything you else you would like: eco-friendly confetti, champagne (I do recommend 2 bottles to make sure we get the perfect shot), letter boards, a 2nd outfit if you’re doing a Standard Package, and/or a friend! Friends can sometimes help you relax and let loose, so feel free to bring one along!


Create a vision board.

Create a Pinterest board of your top 20-30 images for pose/photo ideas you want to try. Then send it to me prior to your session so I can get a feel for what you’re looking for! I’ve linked mine here if you need a place to start!

Please keep in mind that photos will not turn out exactly like what we see on Pinterest. This is due to a difference in photographers, lighting, models, and location.


The remainder of your balance is due at the time of your session.

The remainder of your payment after your deposit can be made through Venmo, or cash! However, I do prefer cash so if you can make that happen, I’d greatly appreciate it!

Mini Remaining Balance: $45

Standard Remaining Balance: $145

Extended Remaining Balance: $230

Venmo: emilyylongg

How will I recieve the photos?

I send out photos via email. Inside the email there will be a link to your album in Lightroom and directions on how to download. Photos are delivered within 6 days of your scheduled session.

What if we have to reschedule?

If something comes up making you unavailable at the time of your scheduled session, please let me know as soon as possible. We will work together to find a date & time we both are available to reschedule. Deposits are nonrefundable, a cancelation will result in the loss of your deposit.

Weather in Boise can flip like a switch! If the weather is showing conditions that will make our session difficult, we will work together to reschedule for the next available time if need to be. I do my best to keep up with the weather conditions and keep you up to date!

What should I wear?

Girls: Check out my Pinterest for some dress, shoes, and casual outfit inspo.

Guys: Hawaiian shirts, dress shirts, suits, or jeans; the options are endless and you guys can make anything work. I do have a board for guys on my Pinterest if you need some inspo as well.

What locations on campus can we shoot at?

Any locations at Boise State that are available for us to shoot at are free range. For Mini packages, we can usually hit the B and a second location in close proximity. For Standard packages, we can usually hit the B and 2-3 other spots depending on how much walking we have to do.

FYI, there are several spots on campus that can be difficult to get photos at, I’ll let you know if your request is one of them. We can try, but there is no guarantee they’ll turn out!

Can I bring a furry friend?

YES! I love furry friends! My only suggestion is to bring a less furry friend to handle them during our session and to bring TREATS! Furry friends are sometimes hard to get to cooperate so please bring all the treats and keep an open mind if it isn’t going exactly how you want it to.

How many friends can I bring?

Bring as many or as few as you’d like! I have no preference, so it is up to you and who you think will make you the most comfortable!

Thank you so much for working with me! I cannot wait to meet you and capture your achievements!

Please reach out with any questions you may have! All of my contact info is in the email I sent to you with the link to this welcome guide. ☺
