IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE A NEW ADVENTURE
it’s time for your senior year
Can you believe you’re officially a part of the Class of 2020?! How freaking exciting is that? You’ve worked your butt off, and it’s time to celebrate this amazing chapter! Working with me helps take away any stresses you might have on planning your senior portraits, the most work you’ll have to do is find that cute outfit (which I can help with too) and showing up the day of your session for hair and makeup! I’ll do the rest of the work for you! I’ll pull out those adorable candid smiles, find the best lighting and prettiest locations, and show off your personality through gorgeous images your family will be able to frame and hold onto for years to come! I love getting to connect with my senior girls. Getting to see what their plans are for their future, and how they want to help build the community that surrounds them. I can’t wait to get to know you more as we plan for your own personal senior portrait session with me!
what you can expect
After paying the sitting fee, we’ll schedule your portrait session date and book a time for your hair and makeup! We’ll also set up a time to have a clothing consultation to go over your outfit choice. If you picked the VIP collection, I’ll have a set date for my VIP get-together with all of the VIP girls where you’ll receive your swag bag as we go over your outfit choices. If you can’t make your outfit consultation we’ll do it over email instead. The day of your session we’ll have your hair and makeup done, and head to our location of choice for your portrait session!
Typically we’ll spend up to two hours for your portrait session. It’s really dependent on the outfit choices and number of locations in your chosen package. While I say it’s up to two hours, sometimes we’re able to knock out photos quicker! I’m all about getting the quality photos over quantity. I’ll have a portable changing tent for you to change into your next outfit, so there is no need to worry about where we’ll have you go to change!
Two to four weeks after your senior portraits are taken, we’ll schedule your ordering session!
DURING YOUR ORDERING SESSION, WE’LL DO A VIEWING OF YOUR EDITED AND RETOUCHED IMAGES AND GO OVER THE PRODUCT OPTIONS. THERE IS NO MINIMUM PRINT ORDER, BUT ANY PRODUCTS BEING ORDERED NEED TO BE PLACED DURING OUR APPOINTMENT. THERE WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL SITTING FEE FOR RESCHEDULED ORDERING SESSIONS. THIS GUIDE INCLUDES THE PRICES OF DIFFERENT PRODUCTS I OFFER, SO YOU CAN GET AN IDEA OF THE PRODUCTS YOU’LL BE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING PRIOR TO THE ORDERING SESSION. FEEL FREE TO LOOK THROUGH THE COLLECTIONS AND A LA CARTE TO DECIDE WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU!
ONCE FAVORITE IMAGES HAVE BEEN CHOSEN, I’LL DO ANY MINOR RETOUCHES REQUESTED BEFORE HAVING THE PRODUCTS ORDERED. I WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR PORTRAITS ARE PERFECT BEFORE HAVING THEM PLACED INTO THE BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTS YOU ORDERED. DEPENDING ON THE PRODUCTS PURCHASED, YOU CAN EXPECT TO RECEIVE YOUR COMPLETE ORDER WITHIN TWO TO FOUR WEEKS AFTER FULL PAYMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED. ALBUMS TEND TO TAKE A LITTLE MORE TIME, BUT I AIM TO HAVE YOUR ORDER DELIVERED AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE!

ARE IMAGES INCLUDED WITH MY SITTING FEE?
Prints and products are available for purchase during the viewing/ordering session. My focus is on offering high quality products that you’ll love!
WHY SHOULD I HIRE YOU TO TAKE MY SENIOR PHOTOS?
Honestly, because I want to capture this amazing milestone you’re completing and show how gorgeous you are inside and out. I believe it’s all about an amazing experience, and your senior session is no different! We’ll have fun and you’ll have beautiful portraits at the end of our time together.
HOW DO I SECURE A SESSION WITH YOU?
All you have to do is pay the sitting fee! Once you pay the sitting fee, we’ll set up your clothing and location consultation and plan with my hair and makeup artist for the best day to do your weekday senior session.
WHAT IF I HAVE A BREAK OUT?
Do not worry!! I have you covered. Breakouts are so common. Normally the makeup artist will do a pretty great job at hiding them, but if they are still showing, I’ll be doing basic retouches to get rid of them in your portraits. If you know you’ll need more extensive retouching, let me know!
WHERE DO WE GO FOR OUR SESSION?
It totally depends on you! We’ll pick out a gorgeous scenic spot, or something special to you! This will be decided before your session date, so no need to worry just yet.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DO PHOTOS?
To get the prettiest lighting for your session, sunrise or sunset are the best times for us to work with. I won’t be scheduling an outdoor session at any other time in the day.

post of the week:
Senior Reps of 2020 | Ohio Portrait Photographer
I can’t believe how fast this summer has been flying by! I got together with my senior reps of 2020 last month, and it’s officially time for their individual senior sessions. Coming from primarily being a wedding photographer, I seriously can’t get over how much I love this one on one time. I get to spend so much more time with portraits during senior photos, which honestly makes my creative heart so happy! We get time to venture off to new areas, jump in a creek, the options are pretty much endless for us.
This shoot was for my official launch of the MA Senior Rep experience! I had planned to have some beautiful furniture setup but Ohio being Ohio… I had to improvise and do without the vintage design I had in mind. Having the opportunity to have all of these girls in one spot, and with their parents, was such a fun experience. I can’t wait for our individual sessions together!
