Senior pictures you love to share

This year goes by too quickly... 

As a mom, I get it. It feels like yesterday they were running around your feet, and now they're driving away without you. As much as you want to stop time, even for just a minute, it keeps going by faster than ever. Which is why I love making your senior portraits a great memory. One that should be simple, FUN, and relaxed.

So if you're unsure of where to go, what they should wear, are worried they'll feel awkward in front of the camera, or you don't know what will look good displayed in your home, let me put your mind at ease and show you how!




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 starts with a quick call. This is where I will get to know ALL about your SENIOR! I will answer your questions, and together, we can start planning the perfect photo experience for your high school senior. From location to wardrobe, I have you covered.


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


Your photo reveal! This is as much of an experience as your session. We’ll get together, virtually or in person, and see all the images we had so much fun creating! I’ll help you choose all your favorite images and artwork that fit your home perfectly.


Enjoy the Journey!

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.

Nice to meet you!

As the mother of three adult daughters, I understand that 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.
