Remember when senior portraits were basically a collection of the most awkward photos ever? Not anymore! We've leveled up the senior portrait game, because you are only this age once and you deserve to remember who you are at this very moment in your life. I know it feels like it took forever to get here, and every adult you've ever met will tell you this - but cherish it, because before you know it, you're almost 30 and wondering where your 20s went. (Insert: me raising my hand, because I feel this on such a deep level).
In all seriousness though - I love what I do more than I could ever explain, however, I believe I can serve a greater purpose than simply being your senior portrait photographer. Through my unique and individualized approach to senior portraits, I’m able to encourage my seniors to be true to themselves and kind to their peers. The portrait experience I offer, is known for creating a radiant, confidence boost in the teens that I work with. I believe in serving my seniors and their parents well, which is why I only offer a limited amount of portrait experiences each year. I will take my time getting to know you on a personal level, so that I am able to create a custom portrait experience that is tailored specifically to you. And the best part - I won't leave you hanging after I send you your online gallery. Your family will have the option to order boutique style products and artwork for your home. I won't let your photos die on a flash drive in the back of your drawer. They deserve to be displayed and passed down for the future generations of your family.
After booking, you will receive a detailed, online questionnaire to fill out. This questionnaire will help me get to know you and understand your vision for your senior portraits. I use this information to select the perfect locations to coordinate your style and outfits. Shortly after submitting your questionnaire, you will receive a digital welcome magazine, including tips on what to wear (and where to shop!), how to prep for your portrait session, exclusive preferred vendor list of professional hairstylists and makeup artists, and what to expect from start to finish.
We will meet at a pre-determined location a few hours before sunset when the light is soft and golden. We will have a ton of fun during our 2 hour photo shoot together, capturing natural images that reflect your personality and style. Allowing for 2 hours of shooting time gives me the ability to photograph you in multiple, unique locations from the urban city to a natural field, with more outfit changes than you could ever dream of! No limit on outfits or poses, here!
Within 2 weeks of your senior portrait session, your online gallery and phone app with 35-45 of the best images from our portrait session together will be available and you'll be able to view, download, share, and print your images. At that time, you will also receive a digital catalog of our heirloom products and portrait collections to order from (which is totally optional by the way!). Payment plans are available for portrait collections, making it easy for you to make online payments toward your collection.
As many as you like! My senior sessions are based on time and available sunlight, not the number of outfits you bring. In general, 3-5 outfits work best.
As soon as possible! Typically, there are only 3-4 dates available for seniors each month, from April-November, and dates fill up quickly.
Senior Portrait Sessions are all inclusive of a 1-2 hour portrait session, 35-45 digital images, and an online gallery and phone app to view, download, print, and share your images. After receiving your online gallery, you'll have the option to add on products or a portrait collection, and at that point, the amount you ultimately invest, is entirely up to you.
Weekends are reserved for spending time with my family. Just like most other careers I work during weekdays and have portrait sessions in the evenings.
Digital Images are actually included in your senior portrait session! You can expect to receive 35-45 images, and you'll easily be able to order prints directly through your online gallery!
Yes! I understand that senior portraits are an investment and I wanted to make this experience accessible to all types of budgets. I offer 2 month, 4 month, or 6 month payment plans for portrait collections only. Your order will be available for local pick up within 4-6 weeks after full payment has been made.
You can expect to receive 35-45 images in your online gallery.
If there is a 60% chance of rain or more within 24 hours of your senior portrait session, we will simply reschedule to the earliest possible date available.
Of course! I love including friends, family, or a significant other in senior portraits! I suggest having them meet us at our final location during the last 30 minutes of your portrait session, so that we can get as many images of you, solo, first! Having too many people there during the whole session can be distracting, uncomfortable and take away from your portrait experience.
UM, YES! Do you know me? I LOVE dogs! I love including fur-babies into senior portraits, however, I do suggest having a family member or friend to look after your pup once we are finished photographing you with them. I don't leave dogs in cars, so make sure to bring someone as a dedicated dog handler.
I will keep your images on file for one year following your portrait session, however, I will provide instructions and best practices for keeping your images safe for the years to come.
Full Senior Sessions are the real deal, and include a detailed welcome magazine with everything you'll need to prep for your senior session (like how to prepare, outfit ideas, hair and makeup tips, as well as my exclusive vendor recommendation list of local professional hairstylists, makeup artists, and boutiques), and so much more, a detailed online questionnaire so that I can get an idea of how you envision your senior session and what their style is, a 1-2 hour portrait session in multiple unique locations with unlimited outfits, 35-45 of the absolute best portraits in an online gallery and phone app for easy download, printing, and sharing. While you are not required to purchase products or a portrait collection beyond that, a full investment guide will be sent to you with your online gallery should you choose to add-on prints, products, or a full portrait collection of heirloom products and artwork for your home.
These sessions are a shorter version of senior portrait sessions. Limited Senior Portrait Sessions are perfect for senior guys, that typically want to spend less time in front of the camera or the casual senior that isn't particularly excited for a full blown, 2 hour senior portrait experience and only wants a few portraits (or is required to have senior pictures taken for mama's sake). Whatever the reason, I have an option for that! Limited Senior Portrait Sessions include a 30 minute portrait session in one location with 10-15 high resolution images in an online gallery for easy download, printing, and sharing.
