If you are looking for the right high school senior photographer here is a little of my philosophy. Having your senior pictures taken should be a memorable experience…one that you really loved.  An experience that made you feel glamorous and resulted in stunning photographs that are completely different from the rest of your friends.  My aim is to create contemporary portraits infused with editorial fashion flair.

Your senior session includes:

  • 90 minutes of shooting time
  • 3 outfit changes
  • Outdoor natural light location of choice
  • Professional make-up application and hair styling (one look)
  • Wardrobe consultation if desired
  • Proof gallery of 45 fully retouched images to choose from

I encourage you to think creatively regarding your session. Bring a sibling for a photo together, do photos in your pointe shoes, or pose with your cello. I want to capture anything and everything that is an important part of your life.


I schedule family sessions throughout all 4 seasons. Whether summer, winter, spring or fall, each lends itself for a magical backdrop for portraits. A typical family sessions includes individual portraits of each child as well shots of the siblings together and the whole family together.  I love capturing that perfect smiling shot and also any candid moments that arise in between. My hope is that your photo session will radiate joy and reflect the loving bond your family shares together.  I also am available for maternity sessions and newborn sessions.

Your session includes:

  • 90 minutes of shooting time
  • Location of choice (urban, country, mountains, beach, in home)
  • Wardrobe consultation if desired
  • Proof gallery of 45 fully retouched images to choose from

Wardrobe can be dressy or casual. Family pets are welcome to take part in your session. I'm open to any ideas that you have for your portraits and I greatly look forward to meeting your family and capturing the memory of your story!
