Questions and Answers about our Senior Portrait Pricing:
To answer your questions about our pricing and give you an idea of what you can plan to spend at Gray’s Mountain Studio, we created this page to help you budget for your senior portrait order.
How much should I plan to spend at Gray’s Mountain Studio?
We are not the cheapest studio in Lebanon County, but our prices are fair and reasonable. Our packages start at $286 and go up from there. The great thing about Gray’s Mountain Studio is that there is no minimum order – you can spend as much or as little as you want. Keep in mind that most seniors tend to spend between $400 and $1100 when they place their order. Some spend more and some spend less, but the choice is always yours.
How much are your 8X10 prints?
We refer to an 8X10 or 5X7 print as a Desk Portrait. These portraits are color adjusted and are enhance by removing blemishes, softening skin and addng our unique combination of contrast, color and texture to create your portrait - all at no additional charge. Our desk portraits (8X10's and 5X7's) range from $54 to $115 depending on what mounting, protective spray and quantity you purchase. This is a fantastic value when you look at the amount of time that is spent on each print.

Gray's Mountain Studio is offering two specials this year: Our Portfolio Special and the Senior Express Portrait Package.
The first summer special is our Portfolio Sale for the Class of 2018. We're offering $60 off any Portfolio Session from June 1st to August 15th.

This special may not be combined with any other promotion/special.
The other special is our popular Senior Express Portrait Package. The Senior Express Portrait Package, is an all inclusive senior portrait experience. It includes your senior portrait session and portrait package - all wrapped up in one very attractive price of only $286.00. At this special price, only one Summer Express Portrait Package per senior/customer and may not be combined with any other special/promotion. You can have either a studio session or on-location session. The package includes 4 desk portraits and 24 wallets from 4 of your favorite images from your session.
I had an outbreak of blemishes the day of my portrait session. Will they be on my wallets and other prints in my order?
Murphy's Law of Senior Portraiture state that you will have a blemish the day of your senior portrait session. The good news is that Gray's Mountain Studio specializes in seniors portraits - and as a professional photography studio, we take great pride in the images that you take out of the studio. For that reason, all images in your portrait order are retouched to remove blemishes and soften facial lines.
What makes your images so unique?
First and foremost, Gray's Mountain Studio is known nationally for their style of photography. This style is what makes the images unique and gives them that special look. But that’s only half the story. The other half is the work that is done to your images after the portrait has been taken. We work on your images to bring out the beauty and intensity. Once this process is complete, the images are sent to be printed on professional photographic paper for a truly professional look. Finally, Glen personally looks at every image - only after it passes his critical eye does it leave the studio.
How will I view and order my images?
This is the fun part of your senior portrait experience (well, maybe not as fun your photo session, but it's right up there). Within a few days after your session we'll have your images ready to preview. At the studio you'll relive your portrait session when you view your images in a slide show complete with music. Then we'll help you select the images for your order and show you the special effects that we had in mind when we created the images. If you would like to order a coffee table book of your images - that can be done at that time.
What about my yearbook photograph?
Your yearbook photograph is included with any portrait order. Plan your senior portrait session to give you plenty of time to meet your high school's yearbook deadline. Please note that rush charges and pose change charges may apply depending on your session and how close to your yearbook deadline you place your request for a yearbook image. No rush charges are applied to yearbook images if ordered within four weeks of the yearbook deadline. Please check with your yearbook to determine your yearbook’s deadline and image requirements. Note: If you pick an image for your yearbook picture that is not part of your order - our $24.00 enhancement fee applies.
