This is your senior year, such special time in your life! When you work with me, you get to benefit from my many years of experience shooting seniors, which includes knowing how to work with natural lighting, where to find the best locations for your shoot, and how to compose a great shot. I am a skilled editor and know exactly how to make you look incredible in every photo.
But this experience isn't about me. Your session will be fun, relaxed, and personalized to you. My goal is to provide you with photos that capture the real you, commemorate your senior year, and help celebrate your many accomplishments - and having fun while doing it.
How do you envision your story? Take a look at the Senior Stories below to see examples of both sunrise and sunset sessions, urban and natural setting sessions, and for some inspiration as your senior story begins to unfold.
Grace is such a natural beauty! We captured her portraits in both urban and natural settings. The warm, soft light of golden hour was the perfect compliment to her radiant smile. These portraits celebrate Grace for the intelligent, witty, and beautiful young woman she is!
We started at the family's grand piano, then moved to an urban setting, and wrapped up the session at a natural setting. The iconic portraits from this session serve as dual-purpose both as senior portraits and as personal branding for Will as he begins his music career and heads off to Berklee College of Music in Boston!
Nancy had always dreamed of having her senior portraits taken with her stunning horse and best friend, Roxy. Thus, when in preparation for Nancy's heading to college Roxy was shipped from Nancy's hometown in Georgia back to her breeder in Montana, Nancy was crestfallen. However, Nancy's amazing parents arranged for the family to fly to Montana and Nancy's senior portrait dreams were realized with this magnificent sunrise shoot.
the great outdoors
We captured Clayton's love for the outdoors in this natural setting session. His easy-going personality and great sense of humor made for a fun session! Clayton's smile is so genuine, even his eyes are smiling!
montana or bust
Saskia was an exchange student staying in Montana for her senior year of high school. Of course we had to capture the glorious fall colors and natural beauty that Montana has to offer. We did a few urban shots but mostly focused on portraits taken in a natural setting. These images will be treasured for years to come as memories of Saskia's Montana adventure!
Jacob loves to hunt, fish, and go camping - so natural, outdoor settings were the perfect backdrop to showcase Jacob and his interests. He wore his late father's cowboy hat in several of the shots - resulting in portraits cherished for so many reasons.

WHAT TO WEAR
There are a lot of factors that contribute to an amazing senior session and your outfit is one of them. I recommend bringing multiple outfits to your senior session, here are a few ideas to get you started.
YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE
Bring along an outfit that you simply love wearing. Not only will it let your unique personality and style shine through but it will also make you feel comfortable and confident during your senior session.
SIMPLE & CLASSY
Choose an outfit that is timeless. Keep it simple by choosing safe, solid colors or muted patterns. Basically, bring an outfit that isn't trendy and won't look out of style when looking back at your photos in years to come.
This is your chance to let your unique personality really shine through. What inspires you and gets you smiling? Who do you want to be? It's not always about the outfit but can also be about something that shows who YOU are and what interests you.
For your next outfit, simply adding in a few accessories such as a hat, scarf jacket or sunglasses will give you a completely different look. You can also choose to throw in a few props to add some interest to the shot.
Show some of your personal interests - be it a special pet, an activity such as hunting or fishing, a sport that is an integral part of your life at school, or if you are a musician, bring your instrument.
