Senior Portrait Sessions

Your child’s senior year is so special!  This is the year that some parents are excited about, some parents loath, and some parents just don’t know what to do or what to expect!  I have been photographing senior portrait sessions for over 10 years!  First, we design a customized portrait session for your son or daughter.  We go over things like hobbies, sports, interests, and locations.  During the photo session, my assistant and I will help guide your senior through different poses, smiles, and outfit changes.  The last step is to reveal your child’s images to you.  This is when you get to choose which photo you would like in the year book, and which photos you would like as keepsakes to remember this important year!

Headshots and Personal Branding

A professional headshot or personal branding session might be what is standing in the way of you and your perfect clients!  Gone are the days that you can get by without a portrait for your LinkedIn or Website.  And, stock photos just don’t get the message out clearly to your customers.  Every session starts with a style consultation where we go over what will look best to you and your brand.  After that, we set up a time and location for your portrait session.  The final step is the big reveal when we go over each of your images and decide which ones fit your brand identity best!

Family Portraits

Family portraits are near and dear to my heart! I love getting to know families through photography.  Some of my clients have been with me for years, and I love seeing their children grow!  A family portrait session begins with a dream photography session consultation. We go over things such as location, time of day, clothing, and if you would like to incorporate your dogs or cats into the session!  Or, what about bringing in grandma and grandpa for the shoot?  My family portrait sessions are fun and easy!  We laugh a lot and the time goes really quickly! The final step is for you to see your beautiful family photos and pick out the ones you love the most!
