SENIORS

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
-Eleanor Roosevelt

More than ever, today's high schooler needs a safe place to feel accepted and encouraged. As a teenager, I was an athlete, a good friend, and an honor student, but I still felt a bit lost and unsure of myself. Twenty years later, I own a business based on a lifelong passion and provide extraordinary high school seniors with the confidence they deserve through photography.

My goal is to create timeless, natural images and provide an experience that will make each client feel encouraged and fulfilled. I'm proud of my solid reputation as one of the top photographers in the Richmond area. I treasure the friendships I form with my clients. I would love to provide an amazing experience and images for you, too!

What's a session like?

My sessions take place in amazing locations, some you may have never visited in your own hometown! I make sure my seniors feel comfortable from the start and trust me, your job in front of the camera is easy! I'll do all the hard work for you!

It's always my goal to give you exactly the images you want. I promise there won't be any awkward posing. In fact, my "posing" is natural and comfortable, just as it should be. We'll have a blast and make fantastic memories and images along the way!

For the senior parent

Moms and Dads, I know how you feel. My preteen son is a constant reminder of how time marches on and I don't want a moment to go uncaptured. We are molding the most precious possessions in our world and deserve to have amazing, yet age-appropriate images to document it! Thank you for your trust in me!

Parents, I'm a mom, too!
