You have been waiting for three years to become a senior, and finally, that day is here!
As you move into this fast-paced, thrilling time of your life, this will be one of the most memorable years you will look back to.
Keeping this in mind, your senior session is an absolute must-do;
to preserve your signature, senior year!
Not only will these images be forever published in the senior yearbook, your senior photos will be proudly displayed on the mantles of your friends and family.
Needless to say, your senior pictures represent one of the most exciting photo sessions you will ever have.
I’d love to help you mark this unique phase of your life with a custom senior photo sessions that will bring out your true, authentic personality while giving you an adventurous, glamorous and remarkably fun day!
Use your eyes to express emotion. When you smile naturally your whole face lights up and your eyes look bright and awake. Before the photo session, practice smiling in the mirror and use different expressions to see what looks best.
Great photos happen when the subject is relaxed and confident. Let the excitement of you photo session show through the lens as you take a moment and breathe, relax and just have fun. You may feel silly during this process but i will do everything i can to help you feel more comfortable.
This may sound obvious but breathing is key to capturing a natural look. Take time to practice taking a deep breath while smiling in front of the mirror. Slowly release the air while holding the smile and notice how your face and eyes settle into a natural and relaxed expression. Allow your eyes to “smile” by focusing on the apples of your cheeks pressing upwards. When in doubt, just breathe.
Staying stationary can sometimes produce a very staged and cheesy look. Just because you are sitting or standing still doesn’t mean you can’t change the angle of your body to create a look that is fresh and inspired. Try leaning into the camera slightly to appear more engaged, shift your weight from left to right, or simply move your chin slightly up and down for different shots as this gives us a variety of facial expressions to work with.
This goes for everyone. Ladies, spend some extra time getting your hair blown out, get your makeup done and choose an outfit that makes you look and feel your best. As for the men, take a shower and shave. When you look your best, you feel your best and when you feel your best, you are naturally more confident. Go the extra mile to walk into your senior session feeling confident, attractive, prepared, and inspired.

I do have several of my own routes which I have found to work best over the years (convenient to get to and get around, offer a good variety in the photos and have a very coastal look to them) but i'm always happy to work with you if you have something specific in mind. The beach is one of the most popular places for your portraits, but I also enjoy the downtown charm of Lewes, DE (cobble-stone streets, ice cream shop!) or let's drive a little north and hit up Philadelphia, for a street-styled model experience!
I highly recommend several outfits. I am all about comfort!
One outfit should be "YOU!". What do you wear daily? If your friends were to choose an outfit for you, what would it look like? This outfit can be casual, including jeans and a hoodie, or straight up out of Vogue! Your next outfit should be a little more polished, such as a button-down shirt, or a skirt/dress option. Different outfits will give you amazing photo options but also, don't forget your jersey or uniform if you rock one too!
