We have always celebrated those who dare to be themselves and not lost in the crowd.
The Senior Experience has always been about being FREE!
- Free to show who you are individually.
- Free to show your personality and style.
- Free in telling your story with images that reflect the real you.
We only accept a limited number of Seniors each year in order to provide our clients a truly one of a kind experience to tell their story.

How much should I plan to spend?
When budgeting you should account for both the session fee and for your print investment. Your final amount depends on you as everyone's preferences for displaying and sharing their final images is different. There is no minimum investment except for Destination Sessions.
What does the session fee include?
The session fee is paid at the time you book your experience and is not refundable. This fee covers the planning and preparation for the session, the consultation, and the photography of the actual session. The session fee does not include any images or print products.
Do we have to come in for a consultation?
Yes, the consultation is where it all starts and is a vital component of your Senior Portrait experience. Everything starts with the consultation... it is here that we being the telling of your story... it is required for the Senior and at least one parent be at the studio for the consultation.
How many outfits can I wear?
You'll have the opportunity to wear several different outfits are there is no restriction. At your consultation we'll go over your wardrobe making sure we have just the right look for you as this is vital in telling your story....
Do you photograph in studio or location?
Both actually! There's no limit where we photograph you. We may do studio, we may do location or we may do both! It all depends on how you want to tell your story!
When do I see the images from my session?
When you book your Senior Portrait Experience we will be booking 3 dates at that time;
- The consultation
- The Session
- Your in person sales appointment.
Your in person sales appointment is when you'll come into the studio the view the images from your session and make your final selections for purchase. All decision makers are required to be present at this appointment. The appointment is usually 14 days after your session.
When you schedule your appointments it is important that every decision maker involved will be there for those appointments. My schedule is very full and typically doesn't allow for last minute reschedules. In order to ensure the highest level of satisfaction, we will not proceed with a sales appointment if all decision makers are not present.
During your sales appointment relax as you view your images for the first time in near life size. This is a very exciting and emotional time and we want you to enjoy yourself as you select your final images as we help guide you along the way.
At your consultation we'll have prepared you for this appointment so that you'll be confident and relaxed in making your selections.
Note: Booking must be completed by a parent (or legal guardian) unless the client is of legal age and will be the one fully responsible for all financial decisions.
When will I get my order?
Depending on your final selections, your print products are typically available 4-6 weeks after the sales appointment. Your pickup appointment will be scheduled before you leave the sales appointment. Full payment is due at the sales appointment. Custom payment plans are available.
How long do you store images?
Images that aren't ordered are removed from the system within seven days. We do not keep nor do we archive images that are not ordered at your sales appointment. All ordered images are archived for one year.
Do you provide images for school yearbooks?
Yes we do! Any image you purchase may be used in your yearbook. We'll send the selected image to your school's yearbook. This image will need to be selected at your sales appointment. Please make sure there is enough time between the sales appointment date and the yearbook deadline.
What if I need to reschedule my session or appointments?
Life happens and we get that unexpected emergencies do happen that prevents you from making your appointment. We know that weather, travel issues and other unplanned situations occur. If this happens we ask you notify us as soon as possible in order for us to reschedule.
Due to our scheduling we're able to provide a one-time reschedule if you notify us a minimum of 48 hours prior to your appointment. Additional reschedules may require a fee per occurrence and are subject to schedule availability.
Can I make copies of my images to print?
