My philosophy for Senior Portraits is simple: your session should be all about you.  I strive to make you feel comfortable in your own skin throughout the session because I want you to feel amazing when you look at your images.  

Here is a collection of FAQ’s. If you still have questions after reading through them, don’t hesitate to send me an email!



Available dates and session options are posted in my storefront to make scheduling a snap. 


Your non-refundable booking retainer of $250 and signed portrait session agreement are required at the time of booking. The retainer reserves the date for you and is no longer open for any other clients. The remainder of your payment is due 15 days before your session date. 


Prices do not reflect Utah’s 7.75% state sales tax. All pricing is subject to change.


Booking retainer fee $250

All-inclusive sessions start at $1500


Each session is tailored just for you. So once you’ve booked, I will schedule a phone call with you to go over the details.  You’ll also receive a link to your very own welcome page with everything you need.


I offer three session options with tiered discounts on a la carte menu items. This allows for total customization and is designed to fit your needs. From gorgeous albums and framed wall art to gift prints and digital negatives. Order what you want, when you want.


Yes! Every session includes unlimited downloads from your online gallery.



You know it! Having a professional hair and makeup artist can make you feel like a million bucks before you set foot in front of the camera. HMUA’s know exactly what makeup is needed to compensate for light manipulators, post-processing, and what colors to use with your skin tone.


Otherwise, wear a touch more than you normally do, and don’t forget the lips.

What should I wear?

Bring your outfits, complete with shoes and accessories. Choose outfits that express who you are and complement the locations(s) you have chosen. Ideas include casual, dress, school/sport, and maybe your favorite outfit.


CONSIDER: Dark denim flatters everyone and photographs better than distressed or light washes. V-necks and button-up shirts are flattering for the girls. Accessories can make all the difference in your wardrobe, and bring out your personality.


AVOID: White tennis shoes and socks. Eyes will go immediately to the gleaming white socks peeking out of the bottom of your pants.

Anything else I should bring?

Pack a brush, hair spray, face powder, and lip gloss so your face stays fresh through location and wardrobe changes.


Also, be sure to bring a bottle of water and a little snack to keep yourself energized. It’s tough work to be in front of the camera!


How do I order?

When you book your senior portrait session, unlimited downloads from your online gallery are included! I also have an extensive product offering that has been curated over the past 18 years. Whether you’re looking for custom-designed graduation announcements or a beautiful framed canvas, we can put your gorgeous images to work. 


Classic & Signature sessions include an In-person Reveal & Design Session where we meet to view your entire gallery of images and design your graduation products. This will typically be 2-3 weeks after your portrait session and is the perfect opportunity to view studio samples of available products.

Do you offer packages?

Yes, and we make it easy by including unlimited downloads from your online gallery with every session. Classic & Signature sessions also include product credit to use on the products that mean the most to you and your family. When you book your session, I will mail you an exclusive Senior Portrait Catalog that has all of my senior portrait offerings in full detail.
