Senior Portrait Session Prices | Photography Sessions for Class of 2025

When it comes to scheduling your senior portrait session, I have several different photo packages, including everything from that quick 20 minute photo shoot to a 3+ hour shoot that includes several outfit changes and even pictures after dark!

Which Portrait Session is Right For You?

Let’s break it down to make it easier. Here are the different session types available for teens and high school seniors. There are 3 options based on the length of the session, locations, and outfits. For these photography sessions, no products or digital images are included. We’ll do an image premiere and ordering session about a week later to review all your favorite images, design your products, and place your order.
