Hello  teen

Graduation is a time of growth, a time of change,
and a time to look forward to everything that’s to ahead. 

As a professional photographer I have spent years finding the perfect locations, poses, and lighting techniques that show off my clients naturally & beautifully. I've put hours and hours into researching the best looks, hair & makeup tips, and wardrobe ideas that make our portrait sessions truly unique. 

Snapping a photo is easy, but directing a client and leading them confidently throughout their shoot is something entirely different. This is something I not only strive to do - I guarantee it with each and every client who graces the front of my camera.

I work with each of my grads individually to create a portrait session they will be proud to show off for YEARS after I am finished photographing them! Instead of following trends, I have worked hard to create a style of our own that is chic and timeless. No detail is left to chance. Our vendors are all seasoned professionals who have been hand-selected by Chic & Grace Studios. 

My goal is to be there every step of the way as we capture your story. From the initial consultation to handing over the final, printed pieces from your session, I will guide you through an experience that is memorable for years to come.

location & scheduling

L O C A T I O N
Add more personality to your photos by choosing the location of your session! Whether it’s the local coffee shop or a local park, let us know if there is a special place that is sentimental to you! If you want to leave that to us, that is ok too!

S C H E D U L I N G
Sessions are scheduled 2-3 months in advance. Cancellations and reschedules must be made via email or phone at least 48 hours prior to your session. Deposits are non-refundable. Our weekend book up fast with weddings, so most sessions will take place during the week. I you want a Studio Experience, then daytimes or evenings works great. If you are after out On Location Experience, then choosing a time 1 1/2 - 2 hours before sunset is always best.

what to wear >

Choosing what you wear to your senior photo shoot is kind of a big deal. After all, anyone who cares about fashion will tell you that what you wear is an expression of who you are. It's obviously not the only thing that defines you, but what you wear certainly can make a first -- and lasting -- impression. Wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident! Patterns, bold colors, and accessories photograph really well. Our goal is to capture you in your element, so feel free to get creative with your wardrobe! When selecting your session day outfits, think about what your style is and what you envision for the session. We highly recommend flipping through fashion magazines, checking out our Pinterest board for inspiration. And don't forget: from head to toe, details matter! Thoughtfully select the perfect shoes, accessories, jewelry and even layering details when putting together your outfits. Your clothing should not be the “center of attention” Your clothing should not make your “disappear” from the photo, it should flatter your body (arms, legs, booty, tummy) Once you have your outfits selected, take some quick snapshots of yourself and ask others for their thoughts and opinions. From there, you can make any adjustments or narrow down your selections. Oh, and as your photographer, I want to see pictures of your outfits, too! Not just because I'm dying to see your fabulous fashion sense, but because knowing what you'll wear helps me choose session locations and backdrops. This is all about you, sweetheart, and we're going to make you look -- and feel -- like a bajillion bucks! Bring a pair of walking shoes to get to and from different locations

Some Senior Portrait sessions include hair styling – if yours does, please let us know how you would like to have your hair styled that day. Kirsten is a PRO and will make you feel like a bajillion bucks when you are done! She will listen and style your hair to make you look and feel your best. Kirsten will style your hair at the studio before we leave for location. If your session DOES include it, make sure you hair is CLEAN and dry when you arrive. Professional Makeup Artists know how to apply makeup, taking advantage of technical natural lighting so that skin looks flawless. Many times a subtle change of eye, lip or cheek color (to compliment wardrobe change) makes the difference between a “good” and “great!” photo. Don’t WORRY! We are NOT in the biz of making you look like someone else… we want you to be comfortable and happy on this awesome day, so we will discuss at length what your comfort level with makeup is! The goal is to have you look like YOU on your very best day. If you want to be more adventurous with makeup, that’s fine – just let us know and don’t be afraid to speak up! You won’t hurt our feelings! Really!!!! Leanne will apply your makeup at the studio before we leave for the location. It might feel like you’re wearing a LOT of makeup but in the photos, it will not show up the same way… trust me. Leanne will apply beautiful false eyelashes to enhance the awesomeness of your own eyes – she is a PRO at this and does it lickity-split; if you aren’t used to wearing these, it may feel a little weird at first but they look AMAZING in photos and really draw the attention to your eyes.
