I wasn't sure what to wear or where to go, but Emily helped with some great ideas and had a location with really cool purple flowers in the background, and it was right down the street!

When my mom saw the final photos I think she almost fainted.

It was so fun to take these pics in my favorite spot downtown Excelsior. Thanks Emily, I LOVE them!




The Mini is a perfect session if all you really need is that classic yearbook photo or a few awesome shots for a specific use. We can drill down to crafting that perfect shot you need. Simple, effecient, and professional!



The Candid gives you the flexibility of a classic photo session with the option to specialize by choosing your style and location. Together we'll brainstorm and craft a beautiful set of images that you can show to family and friends (oh yeah, and put in the yearbook!).



The Whole Shebang is my favorite option to get a full collection of images to remind you of this time and place in your life. Let me explain...

One session will be the "on location" classic senior shoot session where we craft those gorgeous looks you see in your friends' photos. Styled, sculpted, and created to wow your family and friends!

The other session is the "real life documentary" style session - usually at your home or special spot. Dogs + siblings welcome to jump in while at home, where we'll capture a documentary style glimpse of your real life. Photos of you sitting in your bedroom, hugging your dad, doing homework, playing with the dog in the back yard, practicing your instrument in the basement, cooking your favorite meal. Pictures of you living this time and place in your life; a tribute to what it looked like and felt like when you were going into your senior year. This might not seem important now, but in 15 years you'll be SO GLAD you have these!


Side note: As a mom, I wish I had done this more often when my boys were little!!


If your needs don't fit one of the other options, please give me a call!
