Working with seniors

is totally my jam! I love it, I really do.

I love it, I really do. It is such a remarkable time in their lives. I love documenting the budding confidence of these young women (and men!) as they come into their own and are just starting to realize their place in the world, their calling, and the impact they want to have. My job as a senior photographer is to let their personality shine so they can look back on these photos years from now and remember, almost viscerally, this transition period in their lives-full of joy, curiosity, and hope. The photographs will also be treasured by family and dear friends, many of whom likely had a big role in their lives until this point and will continue to be a source of great support. Nothing, and I mean nothing, beats the look in a parent's eyes as they beam with what I can only imagine is the most bittersweet feeling, one of pride, happiness, but also a touch of sadness and apprehension as their daughter or son embarks on this new journey. Documenting this time of transition is a way to celebrate their accomplishments thus far and the many that are to come. I work to ensure this celebration is fun and entirely tailored to the individual that they are!

You love quaint town centers and getting your coffee from the same cute, little cafe on the daily.

Old Town St. Charles, Alton, IL, Downtown Maplewood, DeMun Neighborhood, The UCity Loop, Downtown Clayton, Lafayette Square, Lacledes Landing

St. Louis Locations to Consider

Main Street Chic

The results are in...

You love the hustle and bustle of the city and feel most at home around lots of people and activity.
Take this into consideration when selecting the location for your senior session. Consider an urban location that reflects your personality. The best thing about an urban setting is all the variety that you'll see in the background of your portraits!

Washington Ave. in Downtown St. Louis, Central West End, Midtown, Downtown Clayton, South Grand Avenue, Central Library, City Garden, Arch Grounds

St. Louis Locations to Consider

City Center

The results are in...

You are after the best of both worlds! You love all the city has to offer but also want to enjoy some foliage and hear birds chirping. 
Take this into consideration when selecting the location for your senior session. Consider a location that offers both natural and more manicured or urban settings so the scope of what you like can be displayed in your images! 

Forest Park, City Garden, Botanical Gardens, Tower Grove Park, Shaw Park, Lafayette Square Park, Oak Knoll Park, Arch Grounds

St. Louis Locations to Consider

urban nature

The results are in...

You are at your best when surrounded by nature. Throw in a barn, some horses, maybe a small pond and you are in heaven! 
Take this into consideration when selecting the location for your senior session. Consider a location that offers a peaceful, natural setting you love so much! If you want some rustic elements, select a spot with an old barn or wooden fences.

Longview Farm Park, Faust Park, Bee Tree Park, Shaw Nature Reserve, Queeny Park, Indian Camp Creek, Castlewood State Park, Klondike Park, AHP private farm
