There is way more depth to a senior session than an announcement pic- read on
Our grads have been through a lot- they have weathered formative years during a pandemic. With social media, they probably are up against more social pressures than ever before. They deserve to be celebrated- this is a huge milestone as they move from childhood toward adulthood, representing what they have traveled through as they navigate how to make the journey ahead of them!
We all deserve to have photos we are really proud of, that we want to show others, make our profile pic, and see on Grandma's mantle for years to come. Especially if your child has never had professional images before, now is the time. There will be job resumes and college applications. New friendships. Having some truly great photos they are proud of can help your young adult put their best foot forward.

Client Closet Choices
So many of us want to spin in white dresses. And what we find at the stores locally are thin and fall kind of flat, they lack the fabric and layers!
The gowns I purchase are made to photograph well, and I seek out gowns that not only pass the spin test, I keep them pretty modest (my daughters and I wear them, too!)
You will LOVE wearing one of these for some pictures!
These options are great if you're booking last minute and short on outfit options, or you have been dreaming of a princess-y dress for senior pics!
Available in Venti and Grande packages.
The angelica gown
available in Peacock, Rusty Rose, and Creamy Oat, S-XL
*Tall package note- The FULL senior experience for a smaller budget.
Think about quality vs quantity, and what you will do with your pics. You are getting to choose your favorite stunning photos, vs a slough of OK ones.
When we (myself, my family) have our pictures taken, no matter how many are taken, we use approx. 8-10 and the rest sit on a hard drive.
Tall package you get approximately one hour of my undivided attention, digital images, AND a mini-session in the spring. This is an amazing value that I offer because I value the full senior session experience and want it to be available to you- You have worked hard to get to graduation, and you deserve to be celebrated!

Questions? Let's chat!
May I bring a friend?
Absolutely! A friend can help bring out your true self! We can also get a few pics of you two together as we wrap up our time.
Can my friend and I do our sessions at the same time, together?
Combining sessions is SO much fun, and work wonders for helping bring out your authentic self with a bestie making you laugh!
May we combine family + senior session?
If your senior wants just a pic for the yearbook & an announcement, absolutely! See "family sessions" for this option.
If they want personalization to their senior pictures- props, alternate settings, to include a truck, motorcycle, or sports items- then you need to book two separate sessions (either two full sessions or a family mini add-on).
Help me understand the digital image limit, please!
Absolutely, this is another way I strive to serve you well, I am SOOO glad you asked!
My family has had our pictures professionally taken many times. Each time- no joke- we use about 10 of those images. TEN.
My son's senior pictures- again, about ten.
This past year it took me 8 months to even pick my favorites to print for our wall from the 35 she sent me!
1. By asking you to pick your favorites right away, you have only the images you KNOW you LOVE. Less confusion and easier decision-making when you want to print them!
2. You trust me, and I am HONORED and I take your trust seriously! If you don't know me well yet, or you aren't 100% sure how photogenic your family really is, you can try me out and upgrade to all your images AFTER you've seen them first!
3. Also to serve you financially- the more time I spend editing = increased investment into your package. This model allows me to happily serve each family with a complete session experience.
I have acne I'm self conscious about, do you do retouching?
I personally dealt with significant acne until my 30s. There wasn't OTC Differin or Curology subscriptions. I was given antibiotics (gah, right?!) to no avail.
It also crippled my self-confidence. (This was obviously before digital and apps/filters etc.)
Blemishes are temporary, a nuisance, and not part of who we are.
I will be SO happy to respectfully retouch your images, I want you to feel GREAT about yourself and how you are seen and remembered.
For more severe patches like I dealt with, I take a lot of time on each of your chosen images so each image is respectfully retouched.
Option 1- $15 per image
Option 2- $100 per 10 images
Option 3- Reduce your image count and each image choice is fully retouched. Inquire
What is this complementary spring mini session?
In the spring I schedule a day and open it to my seniors. We get to reconnect, chat about your year and your upcoming plans, while getting a few pics of you right before graduation!
If you know your next steps- a technical program, college, university, internship, apprenticeship, project, or job- this is the time to capture a few images displaying swag or something that represents you entering into your next season!
We just need a few pics quickly, do you offer mini sessions?
Yes, I have seasonal mini-sessions on the calendar! Get on my email list to receive a notification when the schedule goes live, or send a message my way to inquire!
Note- for a yearbook pic, and for guys who really just want a short experience- this is a good option. Also note that a full session comes with a complementary spring mini session, so the value is there!
If you think you need time to warm up before getting comfortable, or do not have a natural camera smile, please opt with a full session- you will be much more satisfied with your experience and pictures. Part of the magic behind your gallery is the time we spend together!
