It all started with a hat. But it wasn’t just any hat. It was floppy with a wide brim, and it looked fabulous on everyone! As it turned out, it was a hat that most of my senior girls fell in love with. That was back in 2013, and it was the accessory that convinced me even more that every little detail matters in your senior pictures. And yes, I STILL have this hat ready for the Class of 2025!

Closet Couture: When You Need Something More

Sometimes my senior girls don’t have the right outfits to match the locations they’ve selected or the vision they have for their photo shoot. I know you don’t want to spend a lot of money on new clothes that you maybe will only wear once or twice. The answer? An exclusive Style Closet curated with outfits you’ll love!

Maybe your playful side will have you diving right in and splashing your cares away! No worries about messing up your favorite dress! My dresses don’t need to be perfect to be camera ready, which means they can get wet, wrinkled, or dirty and I’ll take care of the laundry!

Street Chic

Leather jackets are the ultimate style statement for adding an edgy vibe to your urban senior portraits. With their sleek silhouette and timeless appeal, they effortlessly exude confidence and attitude. Whether you’re rocking a classic black moto jacket or experimenting with bold colors and unique textures, leather jackets instantly elevate your look and infuse your photos with urban coolness. Paired with distressed jeans or a flowy dress, they strike the perfect balance between edgy and chic, making them a must-have wardrobe staple for any urban photoshoot. Sport one of these stylish leather jackets and get ready to own the streets in style!

This black leather jacket was the perfect addition to give Marissa a completely different look during her record store photo shoot.
