How to Prepare for Your Grad Session

Your session is booked, you’re ready to go. But how do you prepare for grad photos? How do they work? Here are the next steps after booking your appointment:

Plan your outfit — We will provide the formal graduation cap and gown but you can decide what to wear for the casual shots. We have lots of outfit ideas in our What to Wear Guide.

Think about any props, people or pets you want to bring — Grads are welcome to bring up to two friends and two family members to their session, plus props or pets.

Have your $60 deposit ready — When you arrive at your appointment, you'll need to pay a $60 deposit. For most appointments, you can pay by cash, debit or credit. Read more about How the Deposit Works. Please note, some university students are also required to pay an additional $15 sitting fee that goes toward student services.

Follow us on social — Follow us on Instagram and TikTok @artonagroup to stay in touch. We share photos of real grads we photograph, plus host monthly giveaways and contests. We look forward to seeing you at your appointment! If you have any questions in the meantime, please reach out.

See you soon!
