Professional High School Senior Pictures
“There’s a good reason they call these ceremonies ‘commencement exercises’. Graduation is not the end, it’s the beginning.” –Orrin Hatch
It’s time for Senior Pictures and you are searching for a creative team to capture what makes your high school senior so special. They have personalities that are unmatched and as big as the sky. Most of them have an idea of what they want their Senior Pictures to look like. We bring those ideas to life in your Senior Portrait Session with collaboration and fun! Gals, if you want an extra edge of added beauty we have an amazing make up artist that will bring your complexion and eye colors to perfection! There is a small added charge for her time, but well worth it!
Session Fee: $125 The session fee is for my time, talent and an assistant. It does not include any prints or products.
Each session includes a pre-shoot phone consultation, where we will discuss the details of your session, and studio gallery portrait review appointment where you can make your ordering decisions.
I do not require a minimum purchase; individual prints start at $50 and print collections start at $299. I also offer a digital collection which includes the session fee and up to 20 of your favorite images – delivered in the Regency Finish with a resolution that will print up to an 8x10. The session fee is non-refundable, however, should you need to reschedule due to illness or an emergency, please contact me as soon as possible.
If you are looking for something outside of a studio setting or your home, our area gives you options! There are many gorgeous locations in Hampton Roads that lend themselves as beautiful backgrounds. Consider the many beaches in Norfolk, Ocean View, Virginia Beach, and Sandbridge Beach. Our favorite Parks in Virginia Beach are: First Landing State Park and Red Wing Park. In Chesapeake, Oak Grove Lake Park has trails as well as waterfront areas. The Norfolk Botanical Gardens offers a variety of options during most of the year. There are many portraits in our galleries that were taken from these areas.
The decision between photographing your high school senior in studio or on location can be tailored to the desired style of your portraits. We often ask our high school seniors to bring along items that are important to them or show their personality. We have used all kinds of props from BMX bikes to musical instruments to sports equipment. Including these items is a great way to personalize your portraits.
We offer tux and drape photography as well. We have the backdrop and the materials necessary to make this happen. The only thing you need to bring is yourself!
Whatever their personality, we are committed to telling their story through portraits of such an exciting time in their life.

Your satisfaction is always guaranteed. Our job is to provide you with amazing images of your family that you will enjoy for many years. It’s important that you love your photographs and they bring joy to your life.
Have you had portraits of past generations given to you? It is a part of who you are and the legacy of your family line. It is also about heartwarming memories you have shared together. The portraits you create with our studio will be the keepsakes you hand down to your children and their children. A beautiful portrait can be small or large. What is important is its ability to tell a story that is personal and meaningful to you.
We are a studio that is based on the creation and production of beautiful images. It is a complete piece of art. There are many steps to the process. We take great care to handle each part of the process to give you the best quality. We want you wowed when you hold the final creations in your hands!
How will you keep and view these professional Portraits? Archival permanence needs to be strongly considered to insure you can enjoy your images for decades to come. This may sound counter intuitive to current thought, but beautifully created photographs are safest when they are in your hands instead of on a disc. Consider that the storage and management of digital files will increase dramatically every year for images that you are not enjoying. Thousands of images in dozens of folders stored across various machines and cloud platforms makes losing digital files a hard reality. Technology will change and you will need to update and change the formats of your existing files in the future, too. We are dedicated to physical images becauses digital images are easily lost, buried, corrupted or outdated. We have a commitment to your portrait permanence and that is why we put the final prints into your hands!
