Senior Year is a special time
Senior year is a time of great change and transition, as young people prepare to leave the familiar behind and embark on new adventures. My goal is to create a set of senior portraits that not only capture your child’s physical appearance but also their personality, aspirations, and dreams for the future.
More than just a snapshot in time…
I believe that senior portraits should be more than just a snapshot in time. They should be a reflection of your child’s unique journey, their passions, and their hopes for the future. I take the time to get to know each senior I photograph, learning about their interests, hobbies, and goals. This allows me to create portraits that are truly personal and meaningful.
Senior Portraits should be FUN!
I also believe that senior portraits should be fun and creative. I encourage seniors to bring their own ideas to the session, and I’m always up for trying something new. Whether it’s shooting in a unique location, using props that represent their interests, or trying out different poses, I’m always looking for ways to make the session memorable and enjoyable.
Why choose me?
Here are some reasons why I believe you should choose me as your child’s senior photographer:
- Experienced and professional: I have been photographing high school seniors for almost 20 years, and I have a proven track record of capturing stunning and memorable images.
- Passionate about photography: I am not just a photographer; I am an artist. I love using my creativity to capture the essence of each senior I photograph.
- Easy to work with: I am friendly, approachable, and patient. I want to make sure that your child feels comfortable and relaxed during the session.
- Affordable pricing: I offer a variety of packages to fit your budget. I also offer discounts for early bookings and referrals.
It is my privilege to photograph high school seniors
I would be honored to photograph your child and capture this special time in their life.

Creative fee: $250
This is the fee that I charge to create the images that we will use for your finished products. Finished products can be a keepsake album, wall and gift prints, announcements and digital images. These will be discussed on our discovery meeting.
Your session can take up to 3 or 4 hours and can include studio/home settings as well as one location setting. For additional sites, there will be an extra charge of $125.
We just get together with the senior being photographed and a parent or parents…or legal guardian. We can meet at the local coffee shop and just get to know each other and see if we’re a good fit. We will talk about the session and what we each expect out it. We will also discuss ideas for locations and wardrobe and any props that might have special meaning. Some people love to be photographed with their cars, which I love to do.
* Parents/Legal guardians must always accompany the senior at all shoots and selection sessions.
What happens after the creative session?
After we create the images, I will cull out the clunkers and present the best images from our session. There are probably going to be a bunch of images. Don’t worry…I’m going to be there with you to help you to decide which pictures are the absolute best.
Everyone is going to be really tired after our creative session, so we will schedule the selection session after I’ve had time to go through the images that were created. This selection session is probably best done in your living room. It is best if we can view the pictures on a large screen, like a TV or something.
The selection session can take up to an hour if we are focused.
Can I view the pictures online?
I am often asked this question. The short answer? No.
Why not? Well, when we go through the images, I, your humble photographer, will help to guide you towards making the best image selections. Sometimes it just takes a gazillimeter (an actual measurement) change in an expression or pose to make one image better than another. I do this stuff all the time and I can help you to see the difference between a good image and a GREAT image.
