THE SENIOR PORTRAIT
What do you love? What do you do and why do you do it? What makes you the person you are?
Our Senior Session is designed to make you look and feel fabulous while we create images that answer these questions.
You are one of a kind, your senior photos should be too!
You are not defined by one sport, one hobby, or one interest. Let's capture them all in a senior session just for you. We can be in the studio in a fancy outfit and end up in a horse barn with boots on. It's up to you!
Senior portraits aren’t just a picture. It’s about the story. Stand out from the crowd.

Frequently asked questions
HOW DO I RECEIVE MORE INFO OR BOOK A SHOOT?
I am ready to answer any questions you may have by phone. Or, simply fill out the form on our contact page and within 48 hours I will send email you a magazine which has all of the details there is to know about the Senior Portrait Experience! Once you are ready to book, you can either call me at (828) 989-3112, or simply reply to that email with your desired date and we will send over the online booking contract and link to pay your deposit. We will then plan a time to plan your session in detail.
HOW LONG DO THE SESSIONS LAST
Most sessions are usually 1.5-3 hours giving you plenty of time to fit in at least 4-5 outfits and often a second location for more variety.
SHOULD I GET MY HAIR & MAKEUP DONE?
Yes! Hair & Makeup is a huge part of your overall experience! It makes you look and feel amazing. I work with the BEST professional makeup artist & hair stylists who know exactly how to enhance your natural beauty while still looking like YOU. You can bring your own hair and makeup ideas or leave it up to the stylist, either way you will not only look after we are done pampering you!
IF I AM NERVOUS ABOUT MY SHOOT! WILL YOU GIVE ME POSE IDEAS?
Of Course, that is a huge part of my job! I will give you tons of ideas and directions throughout your session to help you feel at ease and confident. I find the best photos to be the candid photos because that is when you are at your most relaxed state. We don't do stiff posed sessions around here, we laugh and just have fun together. I never ask you to stand still and pose with a smile to the point your lips starting to quiver. I will coach you along every step of the way.
CAN I GET A DOWNLOAD OF MY PHOTOS?
We live in a digital generation and love to share your beautiful pictures online as much you do! YES, I will provide you with web-ready digital copies of any print or product that you purchase. These images have been fully retouched (blemish removal, skin smoothing, color enhanced etc.) and ready for the world to see. I only release fully edited images. Not only to protect my brand, but to also ensure you are receiving a fully-finished portrait. That is what I do, deliver amazing images ready to be enjoyed and shared.
WHEN DO I VIEW MY PICTURES?
About 1-2 weeks following your session I will schedule your premier viewing and ordering session where I will present all of your proofs to you, and walk you through all of the collections and a la carte options to find out what best suits your needs. I will also show you all the beautiful heirloom products that are available for you so you can pick out what you love!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
To help us understand you better, we will ask you to fill out a questionnaire about yourself. This helps us get to know you and craft a session that is unique to you. Are you simple and sophisticated or do you love bold looks? Let us know, and we will help you to create a fashion ensemble that best reflects your true self.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
Once your order has been placed, your beautiful package will arrive within 2-3 weeks, or 4-6 weeks for custom orders
WHERE DO THE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE
We welcome your ideas for location and we have a few favorites we can recommend. If this is your first solo shoot, it might feel a little awkward. So, we’ll take a few “icebreakers” just to get you warmed up. We want you to be relaxed in your photos, so we like to joke around with you and make it fun.
