A senior portrait experience you won't want to miss

Why are senior portraits with me different than the others?

I've been in your shoes not too long ago. I get it. You want to have some beautiful photos to really capture the essence of who you are in this moment. You want to be able to share these photos with family and friends—whether that be on social media, or on the walls of your home. That is why I offer digital download packages alongside tangible products to give you the opportunity to preserve your legacy. I understand that this may be the first time you've taken professional photos, and that you're likely nervous for what the session will be like and worry that you won't know how to pose or what to do. But I am here to tell you: I am here for you every step of the way! From your initial inquiry to your delivered final product, I am invested in making this the most fun, easy, and worthwhile experience for you and your family. I provide you with an exclusive, in-depth guide on everything you need to know in order to prepare for your senior session. I guide you throughout the session with poses and prompts to make you feel comfortable. I even show you sneak peeks on the back of my camera throughout the entire session to give you the opportunity to make adjustments and see how amazing you look through my lens! I pride myself in delivering more than just beautiful photos—I aim to give you an experience that you will never forget. I have 90+ senior sessions under my belt, and I use all of this experience to make your session the best it can possibly be. My seniors become my friends and we get to know each other quite a bit throughout this whole process!

So you're probably wondering, what does this process look like?


Are you ready to get started? Yay! You can inquire right within this website using the contact form. When I receive your inquiry, I will send over my brochure to give you a more in-depth look at the packages I offer.

Reserve your date

Ready to book? Fill out the brochure and submit it to me. Then, I will put together a proposal of services and we will pick a date that works for your schedule. Once you sign the contract and pay the $100 retainer, you are officially booked!

Make a plan

I will send you my senior guide with all the best locations, outfit ideas, and tips and tricks to make the planning process as easy as possible. I am always here if you need any help along the way.

Time to smile

It's time for your session! I recommend arriving a few minutes early so we can begin promptly. Give yourself plenty of travel time to avoid stress. We will have lots of fun and get tons of great photos for you to choose from!


After your session, I edit all of your photos and deliver you an online proofing gallery for you to review. This editing process usually takes me 2-5 days. Then it's time for you to choose your favorites. I can't wait to see which ones you pick!

Final selections

Once you make your final selections, I do some final editing including skin retouching on your favorites images. Then, you will receive the final digital gallery in just 2-5 days. The photos are now yours to enjoy and share!
