Senior Portrait Session

Featured Blog Posts

It’s important to book your session as far in advance as possible to ensure priority booking for your desired season. We encourage seniors to photograph their session in the spring or summer before their senior year begins, or in the early fall of their senior year.

When should I book my senior session?

Seniors usually wear around 3-4 outfits. Before your session takes place we invite you to our studio where we’ll learn more about you as we help you decide how to choose outfits that photograph amazing, offer a variety of looks, and still feel like you!

How many outfits do I wear and how do I decide what to choose?

Upon booking, we prioritize learning more about your interests so that we can find a Dayton location that complements your style and personality best. We often photograph senior sessions in nature parks, colorful small towns, open fields, or around easily accessible creeks. We have specific locations we know photograph beautifully and we also love finding new creative places that represent your personality best. You can also do images inside our lovely studio if desired. 

Where will my session take place?

You can expect to receive your final image viewing gallery within 4-6 weeks after the session takes place. We place incredible care into every image we edit in detail, ensuring that the wait will be worth it because you are going to absolutely love what you see when your gallery is ready!

After the session takes place, how long will it be until I receive my final viewing gallery?


We can't wait to hear from you!

We look forward to responding within 48 business hours!
