Senior pictures you love to share

This year goes by too quickly... 

There’s something so special about senior year. It is simultaneously the bittersweet ending of an era and the beginning of their journey into adulthood. As a mother of three, I know all too well how quickly this year goes by. 

As they’re prepping for the future and reveling in the excitement of heading into adulthood, senior portraits serve as a marker for this milestone in your teen's life. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate who they are at this moment!

Together, we’ll work to create a FUN, empowering senior photo session designed to bring out the best in your teen while building their confidence and showcasing who they genuinely are.



Carol is an AMAZING photographer and person! I absolutely loved working with her. We had so much fun during our shoot and my senior photos are breathtaking thanks to her. I would 10000% recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much Carol!!!



Carol let me laugh, have fun and be natural. She never had me pretend to be someone I wasn't. She made me feel so comfortable!  I will always remember my senior photoshoot because of Carol and the amazing experience I had!



Choosing Carol was seriously the best decision I could have ever made. She made me feel like a movie star! She listened to exactly what I wanted.  We went to the most gorgeous spots in Colorado. When I saw the pictures, I cried. She had captured me in a way that showed who I really am.



Here's how it works


It all starts with a quick call. This is where I will get to know everything there is to know about your SENIOR! During our call, I’ll answer all of your questions, and together, we can plan the ideal photo experience for your teen. From location to wardrobe and posing, I have you and them covered.


You get to RELAX! We did all the planning, so your Senior gets to feel at ease. I know it can feel a little awkward jumping in front of a camera, which is why I love making it FUN! We will laugh and have fun while I guide them through their posing during their custom photo experience.


Your photo reveal! This is as much of an experience as your session. We will get together and go through all your images. You can choose between an in-person or virtual session. I'lII will help you choose your favorite images and artwork that fit your home perfectly.


Enjoy the Journey!

Their Senior year is all about firsts and lasts, and you want to be there for every one of them!

You want to savor as many moments with them as possible before they take on the world.

We’ll collaborate to create images that truly express who they are at this point in their life. My mission is to give you and your Senior an experience you’ll cherish while preserving this milestone with a print album and artwork you’ll love for a lifetime.

You deserve Senior Portraits as original as you!

Nice to meet you!

As the Mother of three adult daughters, I understand for your high school senior, this year is about embracing and expressing their identity as they head into adulthood. I’m passionate about working with teens to show the world how amazing they are! It’s why I love creating an experience that captures the wide range of your senior’s unique personality and style.

I look forward to connecting with you and your teen to walk through each step of the process. I would be honored to be considered as the storyteller behind the lens, documenting this momentous occasion. After all, whether they love high school life, hate it, or most likely fall somewhere in between, there’s no denying they’re on the brink of the rest of their lives. Let’s work together to turn this moment into art.
