the session experience

I know that booking a senior photo session can be a bit overwhelming, but I'm here for you!

It's my job to make this an enjoyable and seamless process!

Begin by Choosing from two session options


The Luxe ~ 290

  • My most popular session option for seniors!
  • Your session fee includes a 2-3 hour AMAZING session, with options for various locations, including: studio, downtown/city, rural or romantic sunset
  • Golden light sessions available
  • Unlimited outfit changes!
  • Pre-consultation & Planning
  • My interactive style guide that helps you shop for the perfect outfits
  • Referral for hair and makeup
  • At least 50 edited digital images to order from


The Basic ~ 225

  • Great for senior guys who want to keep it simple!
  • Your session fee includes a one hour session, with your choice of one location, either downtown/ city or rural
  • Two outfit changes
  • Pre-consultation & Planning
  • My interactive style guide that helps you shop for the perfect outfits
  • At least 20 edited digital images to order from

The session fee of either $290 or $225, includes the time and talent of the photographer, as well as a collection of images to order from.

All digital images and print products are sold separately and are not included in the session fee.

How it works

Once you've booked your session date, the fun begins! A GREAT session is all about pre-session prep! I'll invite you into my studio, so we can meet in person. I want to get to know you, your interests and what makes you smile. We'll discuss location, styling, hair and makeup. I will take the time to answer all of your questions, and I'll provide you the tools for a seamless senior experience.1. Pre-Session Prep
Of course we'll take some photos of you smiling at the camera, but we'll also take loads of candid shots too! I strive to make clients feel completely comfortable and confident in front of my camera and capture the real, beautiful YOU! I will be there every step of the way to gently guide you into the most flattering poses, so your photos turn out amazing!2. The Session
Your ordering appointment will be scheduled 2-3 weeks after your shoot. This is when I finally get the chance to show you the images from your session. During the ordering appointment you'll select the images from your session, as well as the print products you would like to purchase. I will take the time to show you how to turn digital files into one-of-a-kind, quality art pieces.3. Reveal & Ordering

Your senior photos are an experience and an investment, and I want yours to be fun!

After your session, we will schedule your reveal and ordering appointment. All of my client orders include some custom printed art work, with the matching digital files.


This is by far my favorite part of the senior session experience! You'll have the opportunity to come to my studio to view the images we captured during your session. I'm sure there will be some smiles, a few laughs, and even some happy tears for Mom and Dad when you see how grown up and awesome you look. I offer only the highest quality photography, and I know you will fall in LOVE with your senior portraits.


After you have viewed your photos, you will be able to select your favorites. You can purchase portraits a la carte or choose from 3 different collections. Prints begin at $150 and collections begin at $590. Unlimited digital retouching is included in anything you purchase. Prints, albums, press printed cards, and wall art are available.


A digital file is included with each print you purchase, and you may use that file to make reproductions up to 8x10 inches for personal use.
