senior portrait sessions

Senior year is crazy-busy with so many things to do and celebrate. And one of the first items on the to-do list is to plan and schedule your senior portrait session! Whether you just need a photo for the yearbook or are looking for a fun experience you'll always remember, I'm right here to help with planning and creating beautiful portraits to document this special milestone.

a portrait experience that
truly captures YOU!

Let's create a senior year experience you will never forget and get a confidence boost to send you off on your next adventure!

Options for ALL!

full session or mini session?

I've learned in a short time that seniors all see their senior portrait experience in completely different ways and so I like to give my senior clients options. Some seniors want multiple outfits and locations (the letterman jacket at the stadium and the dress with the fancy shoes downtown) to showcase their style or achievements. Some seniors just really want a couple of nice portraits without a ton of fuss. My senior clients have the option to choose a full session with multiple locations and outfits or a mini session with enough time for one location and two outfits. Keep scrolling for more details.

senior full session details

what to expect

Senior clients can expect 2 to 3 hours of on-location portrait photography. During the planning, we'll discuss location options and outfits as well as any special, unique-to-you images we want to capture.

Sessions are relaxed with no pressure to perform but always with a little guidance to help you look your best in front of the camera. During session planning, I'll share some resources to give you ideas and helpful tips for being in front of the camera. Then, I always start my sessions with a little posing 101 talk for your session, and during your session, I'll be guiding you. All my seniors find their way and look amazing in their images!

Hey Seniors!

Whether you're a current Junior or Senior, now is the time to start planning your senior portraits.
let's start planning your next portrait session

additional info
  • For full sessions, expect your session to last 2 to 2.5 hours. The length of the session is closely tied to the number of outfits and locations. I'll create a session plan that will serve as a guide so we make the best use of our time! I also bring a changing tent to all my sessions to make outfit changes a bit easier.
  • For mini senior sessions, expect your session to last about 1 hour. We will typically have enough time for 2 or 3 outfits and I bring a changing tent with me to make those changes a bit easier.
  • Styling and Makeup:
    You have your own style and I know what looks great on camera. We'll work together to find outfits and locations that fit to create amazing images that are uniquely YOU! (And Pinterest boards are always welcome for sharing ideas). Please email or text me photos of your outfits when you have them planned so that I can start visualizing your sessions. We can also plan a video chat to discuss outfit and accessory options. And while I don't provide hair and makeup, I'm happy to recommend some talented makeup artists and stylists if needed.
  • Pets are always welcome- just let me know so that we can make a plan to include them.
  • Looking for a more adventurous flare to your session- an out-of-the-way location? a couture gown? Just let me know your ideas and I'll do all that I can to make them come to life. I love getting creative with my senior images!
full sessions include approx 60 hand-retouched images in their final gallery

 

kind words

"We are so delighted with our daughter's senior photos. Jodi was really flexible and patient with us as we had lots of questions even before the photo shoot. She made everything seem easy, and even in a busy location, made my daughter feel like the only one there. She not only captured the ideas we had for photos but also found many other beautiful moments we never anticipated."

~ Donna F.
