Seniors Portraits I Western North Carolina

Being a high school senior is a fun and memorable time in a young adult’s life! These young men and women are about to achieve an accomplishment they have been working towards for most of their lives as they get ready to embark on new and exciting adventures. A senior portrait session is the perfect way to capture this moment in time. As a photographer, it’s a true honor to be a part of each and every senior portrait session, documenting these soon to be graduates.


From the gorgeous backdrops our beautiful mountains provide to the athletic fields that have hosted the individual interests of students over the years, there are so many ways to tell the stories of hopes, dreams and accomplishments.

Each town and city across the world is unique in its own special way.  If not even a little of that uniqueness is expressed in portraits, then a big opportunity is missed.  Students should consider using what makes a community, area, and themselves special, and create a senior portrait that means something and helps portray what life is like at this very moment.

The smiles, beauty and pure happiness these seniors share at such a pivotal time in their lives is something that families and loved ones will cherish for a lifetime.


While many senior portrait shoots take place in the fall and early spring, every season can truly bring a special element.  Bundle up, step in the studio, hike up your favorite trail, bring items that represent your talents or dreams. Whatever the season, I am excited to tell your story!
