“I want to know you moved and breathed in the same world as me”

You've made it at last! CONGRATULATIONS! This is the most exciting year for most teenagers. It marks a huge milestone in your scholastic career and begins your transition into adulthood. So many memories are made this year and it's so important to document them. 

​Your session will have a relaxed and natural feel, which will allow you to just enjoy our time together and be yourself. This should not be a stressful experience in any way. My goal is to capture you as you really are, laughing and being yourself.  - Let's go have some fun!

What information can you give me?

I offer a creative, fun and laid back experience! A Senior session with me will last anywhere from 30min. to 2 hours. Your Senior sessions will include 1 to 3 outfit changes and 1 location change depending on the collection you choose. It will also include extra editing with retouching. Feel free to bring props with you i.e. instrument, letter jacket, sports equipment, paint brushes, etc... I will be happy to work them into your session.

I would recommend scheduling your Senior session at least 3 weeks before your schools due date to insure that you get them in on time as the editing and uploading processes can take time. Fall session are popular so be sure to book early if you would like to schedule for the fall as time slots fill up quickly.

It's a great idea to bring a small bag to hold phones, keys, wallets, sunglasses and anything else that you might normally keep in your pockets. We don't want them showing up in your photos.

What should I wear?

It's so important to feel comfortable during your session. Depending on the location, it's possible that you will be squatting, kneeling, sitting, jumping, leaning, laying down or even playing in the river. If you don't feel comfortable in what you are wearing there is a good chance that will be reflected in your photos. Most importantly make sure you choose outfits that reflect you and your personality. Choose an outfit that makes you feel good/beautiful.

What happens after my session?

Your Collection will be beautifully and professionally edited and ready for your viewing within 2-3 weeks. You will receive an email from me with an invitation to view your collection in an online gallery. You will then choose your favorite images (per your package) and make a list for me. I will ready your list and get them sent back to you with a pin# for download. Instructions will be included in your email. If you choose the Indulgence collection your email will come with the pin# to download

Can I share my ideas with you?

I am very open to your ideas and would love to implement all or most of them into your session. Please feel free to share any ideas that you have.
