Hey Seniors!

Class of 2022, It’s Your Turn

Congratulations, almost-graduate! This page is just for you. Your senior year is important for so many reasons, and as a professional photographer, I know what a big deal it is to capture every single detail and all your favorite memories. At Magical Memories by Michelle, I specialize in taking the stress off of you! You’ll have a personalized photo shoot that’s tailored to your personality and interests, and I’ll guide you along the way so you’ll look your camera-ready best.

Look, there are tons of senior photographers in the East Valley. Even your friends and relatives could take your senior pictures, right? So let me show you why I’m one of the best senior portrait photographers in Arizona. Let’s start from the beginning…

Portraits with Personality

I specialize in senior portraits so that you’re guaranteed a gallery filled with amazing images! This way, instead of having boring images with no variety, your senior pictures will be unique and different from anything you’ve seen before. Unlike other photographers who photograph everything from weddings & newborns to corporate & families, my expertise with teenagers allows me to help pull you out of your shell, show that personality, and get lots of different expressions. “But I’m not a model” I hear this so often! I promise you, NONE of my clients are models! They are all regular (albeit amazing!) teens just like yourself! The difference? With my guidance and eye for posing and movement, you’ll walk away with a boost in confidence that will show on camera too! 

In-Person Communication

I walk you through every step from consultation through graduation! I offer an in-person consultation before you book so that we have a chance to meet in person and be sure that my services fit your needs! This gives you a chance to see my premium product line, review pricing, and get all your questions answered. We’ll get to know each other so that you’ll be more confident in front of the camera and I’ll provide an expert’s opinion on everything related to your senior portrait experience! I’m completely transparent and want you to understand my process and pricing, but even more important, I want to be sure you love my work so that you’ll leave your consultation counting the days until your senior portrait session. Choosing your images can be overwhelming, so I provide my clients with a special Image Premiere and Ordering Session where we’ll sort through your images together and design your products right in front of you so that you’ll know what your artwork will look like before you leave.

 

Expert Styling

All of my clients have access to my What to Wear guides that are designed especially for seniors and show many different locations, styles, poses, and ideas so that you’ll be certain that the outfits you’ve selected are true to your style and make you feel amazing. Other photographers have you pick an outfit and location, then start shooting. While it may be easier, that is not the best way to get amazing senior pictures. Instead, I’ve learned to style my seniors so that their outfits coordinate with their locations so that you’ll have stunning images you’ll love! I even have an exclusive Style Closet filled with outfits and accessories. I offer this perk to my seniors so that you’ll be sure to have styles that work well with your locations and are true to your personality.

 

 

Full Blown Sessions

I know you don’t want to be rushed through your session and it can take time to be comfortable in front of the camera. I’ll take the time to help you pose and move naturally so that you don’t look stiff or awkward. Most of my sessions include at least 4-5 outfits so that you have the opportunity to show off all your favorite outfits and activities. We can even shoot after dark! Unlike other photographers who have a set number of outfits and time, I prefer to shoot until I know I have enough images and poses to create a full story about your senior year so that you don’t have to stress about running out of time.

Professional Retouching

I retouch each image by hand and remove any blemishes, cuts, or bruises in a natural way, so you’ll have senior pictures that bring out your best qualities and boost your self-confidence. I also fine tune your images to remove loose strings, small stains, and even touch up that rip in your jersey so that you can focus on having fun during your session! Unlike other photographers who use actions or wash out colors, I enhance your natural beauty so you’ll have effortlessly beautiful portraits! Your skin will be retouched so that you don’t have to worry about that pesky pimple that showed up the morning of your session.

Designer Artwork

Not only will you have gorgeous photos, but the artwork and premium products are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before so you’ll walk away with amazing memories, stunning images, and both physical & digital artwork to show off.
