senior portrait collections

Sentimental, modern, THOUGHTFUL.

When it comes to senior portraits, my goal is to document teens authentically. The high school years can be challenging and I utilize my time with seniors to share love and acceptance. I begin each session by ensuring your comfort and explaining each step. My clients walk away feeling amazing with gorgeous images to share!

My seniors and their parents appreciate my gentle approach to photography. As a lifestyle and natural light photographer, my sessions are not your traditional portrait experience with stiff posing and intimidating equipment. I embrace both lightly posed and in-between moments using my talent and a camera... okay and maybe a step stool (I'm only 4"11")!

After your session, I'll turn our experience into a stunning gallery of portraits. You'll receive images in both my signature color and black & white versions! You may print on your own or select premium heirloom prints, wall decor, announcements, albums, and more conveniently from your online gallery! Scroll down to learn more...
