Why are senior pictures such a big deal?

Senior photographs represent one of life's exciting transitions! All too quickly, this time will end and you will cherish mementos from this stage of your journey.Family members and friends will proudly display your senior photos and review them in your yearbook for many years to come, so these portraits are very important! A professional photography session will generate images that you will all be proud of for generations.

What are your outdoor sessions like?

Our high school seniors enjoy casual, relaxed and enjoyable shoots on location in NorthernNew Mexico's extraordinary scenery. Although sessions last from 1 to 1 1/2hours, they seem to pass much faster because they are so much fun! Shooting very quickly, we produce 50-70 images for each client's selection process.

For even more excitement, friends are welcome to share their photo sessions and split the regular $70 sitting fee. Friends persuade each other to loosen up, clown around and always make each other smile; they just have a blast together.

We encourage our clients to bring up to three favorite outfits, along with personal grooming items and props. Effectively communicating your interests, personality and style are crucial to the success of your session and photos.Items like sports equipment, musical instruments, uniforms and letterman jackets certainly add flavor!
