Fashion-inspired senior portraits capturing one of the most important times in your life.
Senior year is such an exciting time, and it only rolls around once! It’s a big year in your life, and it’s important to capture it. I’m not your traditional senior portrait photographer. There’s not going to be any corny backdrops with stiff poses like you took for the yearbook. Instead, the experience will be all about you and your style. Your photos will be authentic and reflect your personality.

The first step in the process is to book your senior session. You can inquire about a session by filling out the contact form below. I will get back with you by email to set up a date. You will also receive a welcome guide with everything you need to know about your senior photo session. Sessions generally take place in the evenings just before sunset.
Once we have your session booked, it's time to start thinking about where you want your photos to be taken. We will choose 2 to 3 locations that are relatively close to each other. Locations can make your photos stand out, so think about spots that mean something to you. Maybe you know someone with a really cool property we could utilize. If you don't have any locations in mind, don't worry, I have some I can recommend!
Bring 2-4 outfits along with you that coordinate with the locations we chose. Fashion is my inspiration when it comes to senior photos, so don't be afraid to play it up a little bit. You should wear what matches your personality. Don't forget to style your outfits with accessories. Ladies, be aware of your nails since some poses have your hands near your face. I also recommend getting your hair & makeup professionally done. I can recommend a stylist if you need!
We will plan to meet at the first location about 2 hours before the sun sets. It's really important you arrive on time because once the sun sets, we are out of time. We'll start off by getting to know each other and I'll talk you through what you should do during our session. We get to hang out for 2 hours. I'll mostly be asking you questions about yourself while you get to be the model you never knew you were!
You will receive you photos in an online gallery a few weeks after your session. You will be able to view, download, share, and purchase all of your photos from this gallery. I encourage you to order prints and custom products, they are great for graduation parties and keepsakes for you to look at in the years to come. I also offer graduation invitation design as well, just ask me for more info!
My experience with Max was amazing! He goes out of his way to take creative photos and always includes your ideas with a twist of his ideas. Max took both of my senior sessions, both in the fall and summer. The pictures turned out exactly how I imagined them to look, I loved them! I definitely recommend Max for any type of photo shoot!
After seeing many other senior pictures online, I decided that none of them had the same natural, unique approach as Max. For me, this was my first professional photo experience and I needed a lot of guidance to ensure that I would not get those awkward stiff poses. Max came prepared and already had some ideas and locations planned out for me. He also made me feel comfortable in front of the camera throughout the process!
