    Class of 2019

    Hi, please allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Jim and Kathy Naklick; we own and operate Creative Imaging fine photography, located in Pierrepont Manor (6 miles south of Adams). Jim has been a professional photographer for over 30 years and has photographed hundreds of seniors just like yourself.

    YOUR SENIOR PORTRAITS ARE SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PHOTOGRAPHS YOU'LL EVER HAVE TAKEN.

    You won't have a second chance to look good. So it pays to trust this all-important portrait to the studio that gives you photographs you will be thrilled to own...in absolutely the most fun experience possible.

    INCREDIBLE SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHY.

    At Creative Imaging, our main business is senior portraiture. We photograph many seniors from all over Jefferson, Lewis, Oswego and St. Lawrence counties. You'll have a fun portrait session and creative portraits at an affordable price.

    HERE'S THE CREATIVE IMAGING ADVANTAGE:

    You'll simply look better. At Creative Imaging, our passion is to make you look better than you ever imagined. Jim's artistic skill and craftsmanship flatter you in every way. He combines 35 years of camera and lighting know-how with the human touch of knowing how to put you at ease in front of the camera. This is why a Creative Imaging senior portrait always stands out from the crowd.

    You choose exactly the styles of photography you like. We give you lots of  choices. Any session can be a combination of camera room portraits, either formal or casual, plus outdoor portraits. The grounds at the Manor House include some many different looks, that no two seniors will have the same background.  

    Backgrounds, backgrounds, backgrounds! Tired of seeing the same old dull and boring backgrounds and fake props? No one else even comes close to the background and prop combinations available at Creative Imaging. You're assured of a totally unique look.

    Location! location! . Our new studio, located in the historic Manor House has it all! From the elegant ballroom to the grand staircase to the rustic carriage house to the numerous outdoor settings: it's your choice -- formal or casual portraits (or both!).

    Parent are welcome!

    Have you been asked by photographers to leave the camera room ever since your child was 2 years old? That doesn't happen at Creative Imaging.

    We feel nobody knows your son or daughter better than you. We value your input during the session. Of course, many of the portraits will be for you and your family and we want to make sure we are on the right track in getting just what you want. Especially if you had something special in mind, it is important that you communicate that to us. The more information you give us, the more your portraits will be exactly as you wanted. Giving you exactly what you are looking for is our sincere goal.

    Although you may feel your presence may make your child uncomfortable, we have found that to be very rare. In fact, we normally see it makes them feel more at ease.

    We have heard from so many parents that the session was a fun experience for them. And in retrospect, they would not have missed it for anything! We hope you feel that way too!!

    Express yourself!

    You may think because you have seen so many great portraits from Creative Imaging that we don't have time to create unique images for you. WRONG!

    We encourage you to bring along ideas or items to personalize your session. Here are some ideas to get you thinking...

    • Sports uniforms or equipment
    • Hobbies
    • Pets
    • Brothers or Sisters
    • Collections
    • Musical Instruments
    • Flowers
    • Best Friends
    • Hats. sunglasses, jackets
    • ...Anything that might portray the real you would be great!

    Avoid sunburns! We all love the sun, but stay out of it a few days prior to your session. A little color is always attractive, but don't overdue! We cannot change the redness of a burn by artwork.

    Wrinkles show!! Make sure your clothes are neatly pressed.

    %session_image2 -alt%

    We have the miracle of retouching! If you wake up the morning of your session with a brand new blemish (which is inevitable), don't worry! We have the ability to return your complexion to peaches and cream in the final portraits. Unfortunately, retouching cannot be done on previews. Retouching is facial only, so your hair and clothing should be exactly as you wish them to appear.

    Please feel free to call as often as you need. No question is too simple. We want to make your session as memorable as possible, and we'll be glad to help in anyway we can.

    %session_image3 -alt%

    Looking Good!

    Here are a few helpful hints to make your session successful!!

    What do I wear?

    For the first outfit, you will want to choose something classic that won't be outdated in just a few years. We call this outfit the "Parent Pleaser" or if your parents are really cool, this would serve as a "Grandparent Pleaser." It is most likely that a portrait made in this outfit would be chosen as a wall portrait for your home. You may even consider discussing this with your parents, and deciding in which room the portrait will be displayed and coordinate your outfit with the colors and formality of that room.

    We have found that sweaters, suits and dresses work well. Solid colors or very subtle prints are best in medium or darker tones. This should be the firstoutfit you wear.

    After the parent pleaser, you are ready to get casual. The other outfits in your session should truly represent the way you are. You can actually wear something your friends will recognize you in! This is the time to wear the bolder colors or trendy clothing. Below are some points to consider when choosing your outfits.

    Make sure it fits! The "super oversized" clothes are very much in style, but photographically they aren't very flattering. On the other hand, anything too tight may confine you and make you look uncomfortable in the portraits.

    Color is one of the most important decisions. Choose colors in clothing that are complimentary to your skin tone. Have you received many compliments when you are wearing a certain color? That might be the thing to wear.

    Choosing the right neckline is also important. If you have a slightly longer neck, you should choose a higher neckline such as a turtleneck. If you have a shorter neck, choose a v-neck or crew.

    Be careful in choosing tops with large shoulder pads. They tend to make some people look larger than they are. Make sure you cannot see the shoulder pads through the shirt!

    If you want to appear as slim as you are in the portraits, avoid horizontal stripes!

    Sleeveless clothing is not recommended. It makes arms appear larger than they are. Long sleeve clothing is the best choice.

    Sweaters photograph well all year long. We keep the temperature in the studio comfortable all year, so don't hesitate to choose a sweater just because it is warm outside.

    If you cannot decide which outfits to wear, feel free to bring along additional choices. We can help you decide which ones will photograph the very best.

    Dress from Head to Toe! Remember all that you need to complete an outfit. Socks, hose, belts, shoes and jewelry are some of the most commonly forgotten items.

    Getting Ready!!

    If you wear make-up, apply it as you normally would. If you are a diehard natural and normally do not wear a bit of make-up, we do suggest a minimum of gloss on your lips and a hint of mascara. Retouching is provided on your finished portraits, but to make your previews look their best, coverage of any blemish is recommended.

    It is a good possibility that your hands will be in some of the portraits. Make sure your nails are neatly done.

    Avoid a brand new hairstyle or cut. You won't look like you! Please have your hair ready when you arrive at the studio so only a quick touch up is necessary. Hair cannot be retouched, so it is your responsibility to style it exactly as you wish it to appear in your finished photographs.

    Don't hesitate to call the studio if you have any questions!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    QUESTION: How do I place my order and how much money should I bring?

    ANSWER: First, call us at 465-4848 and schedule an appointment to place your order.  One of our staff will assist you with your order during this appointment.  Once you have placed your order, we will total it and deduct your “proof deposit”.  At this time, you have the option of paying the balance in full or paying 50% of the Balance Due.  If you decide to pay the 50%, the balance is due when you pick up your order.  ALL ORDERS MUST BE PICKED UP WITHIN 30 DAYS!

    QUESTION:  How do I get my yearbook photo to the school?

    ANSWER: You don't!  We will take care of everything.  You just choose the photo you want for the yearbook and we will see that it is made to the school's specs and delivered in time to meet the yearbook deadline

    QUESTION: How long will it take?

    ANSWER: It generally takes 3-4 weeks for finished orders.  For an additional charge, you may express your order.  We would have your order ready within 2 weeks!  Yearbook photos take priority and will always be delivered to the school in time for the yearbook deadlines!

    QUESTION: Is retouching included and what does it do?

    ANSWER: Standard Retouching is included at no charge on all poses ordered for Wall Portraits and Gift Portraits.  Retouching will remove blemishes , scars, moles (if desired) and dark circles under eyes.  It will also soften lines of the face.
    Standard Retouching will not correct glass glare, fix stray hairs, whiten teeth, remove stains or wrinkles from clothing.  Nor will it remove tan lines or give you the shave you should have done before your session.   These are all considered Corrective Art Work.  Additional charges apply for these circumstances.

    QUESTION: Can I reorder prints at a later date?

    ANSWER: You can order prints at any time.  However, the prices in the Senior Discount Price List are only guaranteed for 30 days after you place your order.  Reorder prices are higher!  Ordering now saves you money!

    QUESTION: Can my braces be removed?

    ANSWER: Braces can be removed!  However, this is the most difficult correction to make.  Occasionally, the results are not what you anticipate.  Most of our customers have been very pleased, but a few have not.  Due to the nature of these changes, we cannot guarantee results.

    QUESTION: What does 5 Prints mean?

    ANSWER: Under the Gift Portrait category, the quantity you choose is the total number of prints you will receive.  All Gift Portraits are the same price, regardless of the size.  If you choose 5 prints, you could select 5 - 8x10 prints.  Another example would be 2 - 8x10 prints and 3 - 5x7 prints.  More poses does not mean more prints.  It simply means more poses to choose from.  If you choose 5 prints/2 poses, you will still receive a total of 5 prints.

    QUESTION: Are frames included?

    ANSWER: A frame is included with all Wall Portraits (11x14 and larger). All Wall Portraits are mounted on art board and sprayed with a protective finish. No glass is needed! You may choose any frame from our Deluxe Frame Collection.

    QUESTION: What if I don't need a Package?

    ANSWER: You do not have to order a package.  You can order Ala Carte Prints.    However, the yearbook photo is $40.00 if you don't order gift or wall portraits.
