all the steps, from inquiry to delivery

discover my approach to portrait sessions for high school seniors & college graduates

step one : get to know me

Before we chat personally, I'd highly recommend looking through the resources here on my website. From the galleries above + the session information below, to more information on my philosophy as a photographer, to past sessions on the blog, this site is full of information and examples of my work to help you determine whether we'd be a good fit!

step TWO : inquire

The next move is all yours, friend! Head on over to the contact page to send me a message and get this party started 🎉


After you inquire, I'll send along a brochure of my packages, which were intentionally designed based on my most popular products & services in order to make the booking process as simple as possible. If my existing packages don't meet your needs, just let me know! I'd be more than happy to create something custom just for you.

STEP four : the questionnaire

Along with the brochure, I'll send you a questionnaire to help us find a date and time that will work for both of us. It will also give me an idea of what you're envisioning for your session and help me get to know you a bit better! This allows me to capture your most genuine self while also making sure you feel as confident, beautiful, and at-ease as possible during your session.


Once you choose your package, I'll send over a proposal, which will include a contract and an invoice for a 30% non-refundable retainer—both of these are required in order to book your session.

STEP five : the portrait session guide

Once your contract is signed and your retainer is paid, it's time to plan! First, I'll give you access to my exclusive, clients-only guide full of advice & information on how to style your outfits, prep for your session, and more. From there, I'll be readily available to help you plan all the details! We can set aside some time to call, or we can discuss the details on a more ongoing basis via email or text, whatever you most prefer.

STEP seven : the big day!

The moment we've all been waiting for... your shoot day has finally arrived! YAY!! Remember to take some deep breaths, relax, and let yourself enjoy the process. I'll take care of all the details, so there's zero stress on you!

STEP eight : gallery delivery & beyond

Your fully edited gallery will be delivered via email within 3 weeks of your session. Along with your gallery, you'll also receive access to my shop, where you can order gorgeous professional prints & products of your photos! I do not ever require print or product purchases after your gallery is delivered, but the option is available should you be interested. You will also be given a print release, so you are more than welcome to print elsewhere if you prefer.

The average college grad session totals $300, and the average high school senior session totals $550.


- Edited digital images + a print release, delivered in a secure, downloadable online gallery
- Access to exclusive resources to help you prepare for your session
- No limit on the number of final images delivered (an estimated amount will be set based on the length of your session)
- No required purchase minimums or hidden fees. Ever.

All Sessions Include:

First things first: CONGRATULATIONS, sweet friend!! You're graduating, and that is seriously something to celebrate! If you're anything like me, you must be feeling a whirlwind of bittersweet emotions right now—proud of your accomplishments and excited for the future, but sad to say goodbye to all the wonderful parts of these past few years.

That's exactly why I believe so passionately in the value of capturing senior portraits—because who you are today, as you close this chapter of your life and transition into the next, deserves to be documented & celebrated. My mission is to create an experience that makes you feel confident (cause girl, you are beautiful!) and provide you with photos that allow you to hold on to this sweet season just a little longer.

I believe my job as your photographer is to make your experience as simple & stress-free as possible. From educational guides to my signature, strategic posing method, I'll walk you through every step of the process so that all you need to do is show up, have fun, & show off that personality :)
