learn about the process

If you’re reading this, I want you to know that I have been exactly where you are. Senior year is such an incredible season full of memories that will leave a lasting impact on your heart: pep rallies, senior events, prom, college night, campus visits and big decisions. And, it’s also a season of scary choices and life change. I still remember my own senior year like it was yesterday! My number one priority as your senior photographer is to capture the real, natural joy during such an exciting season of your life. I want to capture you in beautiful, natural photos that reflect your happiness and give you memories to look back on for years to come.

Dear Mom & Dad, can you believe they’ll be a senior soon!? Remember the moment you brought her home? Or when he started smiling at you— oh, that sweet gummy smile! Her first steps. When you sent him off to kindergarten that very first day. Her first recital. Her first crush…heartbreak. Now they’re all grown up and about to head off into the world. I’m sure you’re so proud! But, where did the time go? How is it in just a few short months they’ll be walking across that stage…how did it go by so fast?
I am so honored that you are considering me to help document such an important milestone in your life!

I am sure that this season in life may be bittersweet. This is the last year that they may be home before heading off to college, or whatever path they plan to choose that leads them into the real world. I hope the artwork I create for you will be displayed on your walls so that when they are off on new adventures, you’ll be able to see that beautiful smile when you look at your keepsakes. I am so thankful for this opportunity to document your senior. I can’t wait to work with your family.

My heart behind capturing your senior year is this: I want to make you feel beautiful, I want to make the process fun and I want to make sharing your images EASY.
