HEY SENIORS! We offer sessions year-round, although summer and fall are the best time for senior portraits. Longer days = more sunlight to work with, nicer skies, nicer trees and other natural backgrounds Senior sessions are one-on-one, but from time to time, we may announce special group sessions (e.g. at a special location), where we take multiple seniors for a group session on-location.

We work with you to find out your interests and personality, and will work together to select the best location (or locations) for your photo session. Some location ideas include our local metro parks (natural setting, with pathways, bridges, water), barns, abandoned structures, graffiti walls, downtown (urban setting, city lights), and many more ideas to match who you are.

WHAT TO WEAR- GIRLS: We will probably be shooting a couple different outfits, but some general rules: the more colorful and tastefully coordinated, the better. Wearing jeans? Pair them with a white tank, and a bold jacket you can wear on top of it. Dress up the jeans with a sleek pair of heels for a classic look, or bring some chucks for a different vibe. We routinely post updates and seasonal information about what to/not to wear on the blog, have a look here!

WHAT TO WEAR- GUYS: Guys – as a guy, you probably don’t do very many photo shoots, so let’s make the most of it and make it great! A suit isn’t required, but only if you want that formal look in your photos. Some great ideas: denim or leather jackets, varsity letter jacket, jeans (ripped or not), graphic tee shirts, vintage band tee shirts, long sleeve tee shirts layered under another shirt, unbuttoned flannel shirts you can layer. We post seasonal styling tips to the blog, so head on over to our seniors blog category for more.

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT: One of the best things about shooting senior portraits is the unlimited creativity that we can put into your photos. Whether it’s taking a photo and making it “pop” in black and white, or scouting out that perfect spot and calculating the date and time and angle of the sun to get everything lined up perfectly. We can also add a special look to your photos by shooting some of our shots on film. Film? Yes, actual film that you put in the camera, wind it on, and then have it developed afterwards. Film is very popular even today, because of its smooth rendition of skin tones, as well as being able to choose from several types of film: daytime film, evening (low light) film, black and white film, and we can even shoot on cinematic movie film for a truly special aesthetic to your photos. Once developed, the film is scanned to digital, so we can still see it online and make prints from it.
