Modern. authentic. you.

senior portraits

as your photographer, my goal is to capture You doing "You"

Who are you?

What are you passionate about?

If you were to put together a highlight reel of your high school experience, what would you want to see?

The things that are important to you are important to me. Sure, I can take some great photos of you that will look incredible hanging on your Mom’s wall. But I also want to capture You doing “YOU” - so what is that...?  Is that you sipping a cup of coffee outside your favorite coffee shop, perfecting your gymnastics routine, practicing free throws, playing piano? Is that you tinkering on your ride in the garage, tossing a football with friends, fishing off the dock at your favorite lake..., or maybe just hanging out at home with a good book?

There's just something about this time in  your life that is so exciting, captivating, and so much fun to be a part of...where will you go, what will you do?  Are you self confident?  Do you see your potential?  Nothing is more satisfying to me than helping you see yourself as others do, instead of the out of focus, tilted lens we often view ourselves through.  I love getting to know who you are, what you're into, and having the opportunity to capture this special time in your lives through the art of photography.  

Your senior photo experience should be awesome, and a time that you remember fondly every time you see the photos.  Let's do more than just take your photo, let's capture who you are through the lens of my camera in a modern and authentic way. 

Taking the time to document YOU doing "YOU" is what makes your senior portrait experience with me different.  We'll plan an EXPERIENCE, and come away with images that are MODERN.  AUTHENTIC. YOU. 

LET'S DO THIS!

A few words from one of my senior moms...

"...You are so talented and the fact that you get to know your clients for who they are is truly something I was not expecting in a photographer but something that I LOVE ABOUT YOU."
