I am so excited that you have chosen me to be your senior photographer! I can’t thank you enough for your business! This is such a huge time in your life and choosing to document it in such a way will be such a treasure! We are going to have an absolute blast at your senior portrait session- I promise it will be way better than you think! I can’t wait! When I had my senior pictures done, I went with the studio contracted with my high school. I didn’t have a lot of choice over how it went and that definitely showed in my pictures. They looked like the rest of my friends’ pictures and weren‘t very special. I hope to give you an experience of a life time for your senior pictures!

Moisturize the night, trust me, face cream helps!

Stay out of the sun, or minimize sunburn up to a week before your session. 

Some important extra tips!

Let's chat Locations & outfits

Once you have started selecting outfits, and have a couple ideas set and ready, lets meet! please, set this in advance! We want to meet at least two weeks before your session date.  if none of the below dates work, please email me!




What if there is rain? We need to cancel Hair & Makeup at least two hours before, so we will watch weather and make that call! 

What if I get sunburned? DON'T get a spray tan after! It will peel too! If we have to shoot, the makeup artist can hide some of it. 

Should I spray tan? Hmm, if its your first time, NO, try it before your session. Spray tans can look very orange on camera, so go light, and use someone you trust! Erin who we use for hair & makeup does a good job. 

How do I use the style closet? The link is below, add any selections to your cart, and I will have them the day of your session! Want to try them on? Just let me know, we can meet at any time at the studio! 

How do I use the fashion box? Please have your selections to me at least 6 weeks prior to shooting {this is a pinterest idea board}. The stylist will get your board and send ideas which I will share with you. She will send what you love!

What if I am sick? I want you to feel your absolute BEST! let me know as soon as you can if you aren't feeling amazing, or if you have some other issue, so we can get you rescheduled. I like to give HMUA at least 3 hours notice, when possible!

Stay out of the sun, or minimize sunburn up to a week before your session. 

I'll see you soon! 

I can't wait to meet you!
