beautiful & relaxed

senior portraits

Welcome, I'm so glad you're here! I focus on a simple, relaxing approach that takes all the stress away.


Many seniors are reluctant or nervous about getting their photographs done. I completely understand! That's why I use prompts and games (and my unbridled enthusiasm) to move the session along effortlessly. You'll forget that I even had a camera there!


I can't tell you how many times I've heard: "that was WAY more fun than I thought it was going to be!"

My style


Overall Style: My images are relaxed, crisp, and timeless. Above all, I love capturing the humor and joy of each senior I photograph! I also love to create dramatic images that show a more serious side.


Editing: I aim for a clean, natural editing style. Instead of photos with heavy editing (which can quickly look dated), you will be able to love your images your whole life!


Shooting Style: I use prompts and simple games to make you forget all about the camera. I know just what to say to help you relax, laugh, and feel completely comfortable!

Your unique style

For every single senior, I dream up a way to create totally unique images for you. Many of my seniors love my nighttime and sunset images, and other super dramatic flash portraits!


No stiff, formal posing here! I'll create a mix of candid images as well as beautifully posed images looking at the camera, so you have an assortment of shots to love.


Have a hobby, interest, sport, or pet you want to include? I'm all about it! I'll create something special that highlights what matters to you.


Or... put simply: I've got this. You just show up, and I'll do the rest!
