Are you looking for the ultimate custom senior portrait experience?

Let’s kick off your senior year right! We’ll work together to make your session everything you've been dreaming of. Here are just some of the things you can expect when working with me.

  • A one of a kind experience that will highlight your interests and personality and be as unique as you are.
  • A pre-session consultation where we will start planning your custom session.
  • Guidance on what to wear and how to prepare for your photo shoot.
  • Location ideas and brainstorming for your perfect look.
  • A Premiere where you will view a slideshow of your images, have a treat, and I’ll help you and your parents place your order.

Parents :  

As a mother I can relate to how fleeting your child's precious moments are. It’s hard to believe that they’re about to graduate high school and go out into the world! You have a lot to proud of! They may not understand the importance of professional photographs, but rest assured they will thank you in years to come. 


  • My clients spend between $1000-$2500 on their whole senior experience, custom artwork, and invitations.
  • Session fees start at $159 for 1 hour and 3 outfits.
  • Print collections start at $695.


Where are you located?
My office is located in the historic Old Central School in Grand Rapids, MN. 

What’s this going to cost me?
Session Fees are $159, $269, $429, or $799 depending on the session you choose. Prints and digital files are purchased separately. Packages start at $695. Canvas Wall Portraits start at $277 for an 8x10. Call and chat with me and I’ll email you a full price list. (218) 259-2765.

What’s your most popular product?
Storyboards (aka collages) are far and away my most popular product. They are a great way to remember your big day and to have your favorite pictures in one place.

How and when should I book?
After you’ve received my full price list and decided I’m the girl for you, give me a call to book a FREE pre-consultation. At that time we’ll choose a session date, discuss locations, look at product options, and I’ll collect the session fee. Paying the session fee will reserve your date.

I recommend...

  1. Something traditional.
  2. Something casual.
  3. Something trendy. 

Whatever those words mean to you. Be creative and be yourself. Feel free to text me pictures and ask questions about specific outfits. I can also hook you up with a personal shopper, if you want. 

Hair? Makeup? What should I wear?
All of these are a reflection of you but make sure you are showing your BEST side. 

You are welcome to do your own but I absolutely love when my clients have their hair and makeup done professionally. The girls at True North Salon and Spa are fabulous. Let me know if you’d like me to book an appointment for you before your session. 

What happens after my session?
Approximately 2 weeks after the shoot, I’ll contact you and your parents to schedule your Premiere and then send you a link to your proofs. The Premiere is where you’ll view your images and choose your favorite images, products, and digital files. From Instagram pics to Wall Portraits, you’ll purchase only the things you want. 

Is retouching included in your rates?
A light retouching is included for preliminary proofs. A full edit is done on all photographs ordered.

Do you offer digital files?    
Digital files are available for purchase once a collection is purchased. They include a print release, which allows you to print for personal use. I also include a PDF with tips for printing and some recommended photo labs. Contact me to find out more. (218) 259-2765 or [email protected]

Is there a travel fee?   
I do not charge a travel fee if your location is within 10 miles of Grand Rapids, MN.
Are you outside of this radius? No problem! Contact me for any travel inquiries.

What forms of payment do you accept?
Credit cards, cash, and checks accepted and payment plans available!
