You want to celebrate with great images. (And the old ‘just their face, a black drape over their shirt, plus a bluish background’ shot is not exactly what you had in mind.)
You want to show off everything you love about them, plus give them the confidence boost of looking and feeling like the best version of themselves. (Which, when you look at what they’ve achieved, is pretty amazing.)
You also wonder if it’s possible to “get a few shots” with their best friend, their furry companion, or maybe even one of the whole family. The session is about them, but it’d be dreamy if there were a little flexibility to embrace the people who love and support them through this big life transition.
We were meant to be! Scroll down for all the details
1. Get to know each other
First, we’ll chat briefly over the phone. You can ask any initial questions and make sure I’m a good fit, and I’ll get to know a bit about your senior. Then we’ll arrange a time to meet in person, most likely by the fireplace in my home office.
There, I’ll ask questions about your son or daughter and discover what’s most important to you both and what lights them up. We’ll talk about the perfect location and I’ll give some secret tips to get the most out of your session. If you choose, I can help you book one of the area’s best hair and makeup artists before the session to make your teen feel extra flawless and showered with attention.
2. Enjoy your photoshoot!
On the big day, we’ll have a relaxing time, and I’ll join you in being your son or daughter’s biggest cheerleader. You’ll love watching their confidence bloom with every shot, and they’ll love feeling radiant, gorgeous, and well-photographed.
There really is no experience like people surrounding you with support and telling you how great you look as you have your picture taken. Photos aside, it deepens a personal sense of how absolutely worthy, loved, and special you are, and it’s something your teen will never forget.
3. Have your heart stolen in a photo reveal, then order in person.
You’ll come to my home for the big reveal of your images, and have a chance to handle sample products and place your order right then. (This is when I can virtually show you what images will look like hanging on the walls of your home.)
In short – rather than hovering over your computer screen forever, agonizing over whether 0065 or 0067 is the right one and squinting to imagine what this will look like printed – you can choose your exact favorites when the joy of seeing them is fresh in mind, and have the whole thing taken care of in one sitting. Simple. Stress-free.
4. Receive your images!
Your yearbook image will be ready within 3 business days of your ordering session, and within 3-4 weeks your prints and albums will be ready to be picked up (or I can drop them off).

All additional prints, wall art, albums and digital files are purchased separately.
That way you can select exactly what you want once you’ve seen your images. No stuffy packages where you end up with fifty more wallets than you need!
1. My teen has concerns about their skin – what can you tell me about what to expect?
Light retouching is included for any image you purchase – your senior will look flawless, but not fake. We leave the heavy-handed stuff to fashion magazines (no thanks!) but a breakout before a session is no reason to stress. I’ll make sure they feel confident about the way they look in their photos.
2. Is there an extra fee to include family, dogs, or friends?
Nope! The session highlights one teen, but feel free to bring their biggest fans to join in for a few and cheer them on.
3. Can I really wear as many outfits as I like?
Sure, all outfit changes just need to fit within the 60-90 minute time frame. My advice is to not go beyond three outfits. We can show many sides of you in just one outfit, there’s no need to stress about shopping. And you’ll find that once you’re in front of the camera, you get into a flow that you might not want to interrupt. Some people choose to just wear one, and that’s fine too!
