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.  We will most likely laugh a lot, chat while searching for great locations and probably stop for a Dr. Pepper along the way.


What are your rates?

Your Senior Portrait Booking Fee is $250.


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 Collections 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.


There is a minimum order of $600. Print Collections start at $650 and Digital Collections at $1500.


Your non-refundable booking fee and your signed portrait session agreement are required at time of booking. Prices do no reflect Utah’s 6.85% state sales tax. All pricing is subject to change.

Do you offer digital negatives?

Yes! I have a killer digital collection that includes a 5×7 print of each image and a print release. Digital negatives are not included in your booking fee. All digital negatives, prints, albums, and more are sold separately. Digital Collections start at $1500.

Do you offer hair and makeup services?

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 up to 4 outfits, complete with shoes and accessories. Choose outfits that express who you are and compliment 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, we will also book an ordering session. 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, awesome ones. Print Collections start at $650 and Digital Collections at $1500. When you book your session, I will mail you an exclusive Senior Portrait Catalog that has all of my senior portrait collections in full detail. You can choose which collection you would like when we meet for your ordering session.
