Fresh, Fun AND Uniquely you!!

Hey there Senior!  Well here you are!  You made it to your senior year (and so did your parents)!  Congratulations!  You have waited your whole life for this - so close those 16 open browser tabs, you just found your senior photographer. 

With over 17 years experience photographing seniors, you can rest assured that this experience will be everything you have hoped for.   No need to worry about how to pose, what to wear, what location to choose - I've got you every step of the way! 

I can hear you now, "but Heather, I have NO idea how to model in front of a camera".  Perfect!  That's even better.  I will guide you in a way that is easy, fun and more importantly going to show the world who YOU are! 

Once we decide on a date, you will receive our exclusive Senior Portrait Session Style Guide to get you thinking on everything from wardrobe to hair, where to meet, to adding in your hobby and interests - to "should I get that spray tan or not"?  We've got you covered! 

When portrait day arrives, we will vividly bring your unique personality to life in a relaxed, refreshing and candid approach.  Your portraits are going to reflect your personality, your interests and that vibe that belongs to only YOU!  Best of all, it's going to be so FUN!

This is one of the best parts!  Since I have been in business for 17 years now, my vast experience and efficient workflow means you get your images MUCH faster than most photographers turn around time.   It is not unusual to receive your entire portrait gallery within 24-48 hours from your session.  I guarantee a two week delivery, but typically it is MUCH quicker.
