When is the best time of year to take senior pictures?
Parents begin to book as early as June, the summer before senior year all the way through until graduation. The best time will depend on the type of look you are going for. Seniors tend to prefer the Fall. The Spring season can be hectic as students begin to consider prom and graduation as well.
How would you help my teen loosen up in front of the camera?
Nerves are normal and I factor that in prior to the session day. It is important that they play a part in the preparations leading up to their session. I encourage parents to have the teen join us during the discovery call, where they can interview me, share their likes and the vision for their pictures. Following that, I make myself available to support them when making outfit choices. On “photo-day”, your teen feels more comfortable, as we converse and laugh throughout the photo experience.
Will the make up make my teen look older than she is?

The application of makeup, included in the Senior Experience for girls, is applied by a seasoned and experienced makeup artist that I trust completely. Makeup is applied to lightly accent your teen’s features and to remove shine. As a result, makeup is always age appropriate.
What if it rains on the session day?
Most of the photo sessions take place outdoors unless your teen has envisioned an indoor setting. Part of the planning process is for me to keep an eye on the weather reports. If your photo location cannot be changed to fit your vision and celebration, then we simply reschedule for another day that works better. Indoor portrait sessions are always another option.

Young people are near and dear to my heart, given my own teen experiences and I endeavor to always provide a safe space for them. Here’s why…
