High School Senior Portrait Sessions

Celebrate the start of your next chapter


If you're looking for a Pittsburgh high school senior photographer, you're most likely looking for unique, remarkable images that commemorate this milestone in your life, and make you look fabulous!

Years of hard work have lead up to this moment; this final year and graduation of high school. High school portraits are a great opportunity to really show the world who you are, and to capture your moment. This means you end up with the most beautiful portraits around, and you will have an incredible experience. You are going to laugh, you're going to have fun, and you're going to look amazing!

I work with students from all over Pittsburgh, particularly in the South Hills, including Mt. Lebanon High School, Upper St. Clair High School, Shadyside Academy, Winchester-Thurston, The Ellis School and more! We will work with you to pick the perfect outdoor location to showcase your style.

Take a look at my portfolio and make sure you love what you see. My style is clean, natural, uncluttered and timeless.

Contact us to schedule your session today! Limited sessions available each season.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I book?

You should aim to book a session between January and June in your junior year of high school. Our calendar fills up fast in advance of the prime summer months. Most yearbooks have a deadline of early October and you should try to time your shoot at least two months before the deadline.

If you are looking for a session closer to your deadline, contact me as soon as you are thinking of working with me! We may be able to shoot your yearbook portrait before the deadline, and then plan your outdoor session for the fall.

When will my session be?

The warm summer months of June-August are the best months for our outdoor on location shots, though some seniors shoot multiple sessions throughout the year.

Where will my session be?

We shoot outdoors on location: in the city for an urban vibe or out in nature for a sun-drenched, natural look. I can recommend a location based on your needs and interests, or I am open to your ideas! If you are looking for a studio session, ask me how to incorporate your yearbook headshot into your session or we can plan a studio-only session for you.

What should I wear?

What do you like to wear? Do you want to wear a three piece suit, or a football jersey? A beautiful dress, or cute casual clothes? You will look back on these images and remember what it was like to be you, in this point in your life, so choose something that reflects who you are, and that you feel comfortable in. I recommend up to three looks--one formal, one casual, and one trendy/wildcard look.
