pre book your
2024 session

Upcoming seniors from all over New England seek out Christina Runnals Photography for their senior portraits each year, which is why we created a pre-booking process.  Pre-booking simply means you will select the month you would like to have your senior portraits taken, pay a deposit, and then will be officially guaranteed a spot in that month!   For the highly coveted August and September dates, please be sure to pre-book at least 6-12 months in advance!  (PRO-TIP FOR FIRST TIME PARENTS OF HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS- If your son or daughter is graduating in 2025, you will want to schedule their senior pictures for the summer or fall of 2024, which means you should be pre-booking or booking their session with us by May 2024 at the very latest!)

Please view my travel fees if you'd like your session to be outside of the Scituate/Cohasset/Norwell/Marshfield area.

Pre-BOOK YOUR class of 2025 session

Yes, all packages include downloading and printing rights to ALL of your selected images.
Does my session price include digital images?  
I recommend booking your session at least six months in advance, but once in a while I do have space open up at the last minute.  August and September sessions are often booked 8-12 months in advance.
How far in advance should I book my senior portrait session?
Yes!  You can pre-book your class of 2025 session here.  This will guarantee you a spot on our calendar for next summer.  You will choose your session date in April.
I'm in the class of 2025.  Can I book a spot already for NEXT summer?!
This likely means that that specific month is, unfortunately, sold out.  Make sure to check out our sunrise sessions and mid-day sessions for availability, and also do not hesitate to add your name to the waitlist!
Why are there no dates available in the month I'm trying to book?
I love creating images that are natural and full of light. My photography style has been described as light and airy, or bright and colorful.
How would you describe your photography style?
After you book your session, you will receive a thorough guide from me detailing my best senior portrait wardrobe tips.  There is a guide for the ladies and a guide for the gents!
What should I wear for my senior pictures?
When you receive you proof gallery, you will have the option to purchase as many additional images as you'd like for your final gallery!
What if I end up loving more photos than the amount of images my package includes?!
We will reschedule of course! I typically will try to reschedule for the very next day, or within 7 days of your session.
What if it rains on the day of my session?
Yes!  I have had many beautiful beach sessions in October and November.  The grasses are golden and the light is warm.  I recommend sweaters be worn at the beach in these months!
Will the beach work as a location in October or November?
Yes!  I have photographed seniors all over the northeast US.  You can view my current travel fees here.
Do you travel for sessions beyond the South Shore?
Absolutely! I love creating images that are customized to you and your personality.  
Can I include my pet or sports equipment or other props?
Most definitely not! Some of my senior guys end up going with the Sand Dollar package so that they can wear an athletic uniform on a field and then a different outfit for some beach shots. It's totally up to you.
Do guys *have* to choose the "for the guys" session?
I am happy to set up a way for you to pay in monthly increments leading up to your session.
Do you offer a payment plan?
Yay! Simply head to my booking page and fill out your information. Choose a date for your session, sign the contract, and pay your deposit - you're booked!  (If you are booking far in advance, you can opt to pay your deposit now and be among the first to select your date when I release my availability in the spring - I highly recommend doing this!).
Okay, we're so excited and we're ready to book!! What next??
