Our job is to show how fabulously beautiful you are and to create an experience you will never forget… something that you’ll remember even when you’re old and gray!

Hair, Makeup, Photos

We’re so thrilled you are considering Cardwell Aukerman for your senior photos. We love what we do, and most importantly, we love to have fun! Our senior photoshoots are all about letting your true self shine through amazing images. It’s our job to create an experience you’ll never forget, and above all, we want your senior photoshoot to focus on YOU.

We’re a boutique style studio. That means we’re NOT a volume studio! We only accept a certain number of clients each month, so we can focus solely on you. We’ll walk you through every step of the process from your initial consultation to the actual photoshoot to viewing and selecting your images!
We start by helping you find the perfect photoshoot location whether you love the outdoors and want to take your senior pictures at one of Durango's beautiful on-location natural backdrops or you want to capture your more elegant side in a studio portrait photography setting. Then, we’ll create your flawless look with fabulous clothing choices, jewelry, hairstyles, and makeup.

After your photoshoot, we’ll schedule a private showing in our photography studio where we will assist you in selecting the best images that exemplify everything that makes you exceptional. We would never just throw your senior photos on a website and leave you to figure it out as some photographers do. This can be the most overwhelming part of the process!
At the end of the day, our mission is to create art that takes your breath away - filling your home for years to come! Our favorite part is when our seniors see their portraits for the first time and squeal with delight ... or cry because they didn't know they were THAT beautiful! These are the moments that make our heart sing.

We can't wait to photography you!
