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, now they are driving away without you. As much as you want to stop time, for just a minute, it keeps going by faster than ever. Which is  why I love making your Seniors' portrait session a great memory.  Simple, FUN, and relaxed. 

  • Unsure of where to go and what to wear?
  • Worried they will feel awkward in front of the camera?
  • 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!!!


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.



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!



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 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 as 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 Adventure!


Their Senior year is all about firsts and lasts and you want to be there for every one of them! You want to savor a few more moments with them before they take on the world.

I know you don't want to settle for photos that look just like everyone else's. Which is why I get to know your Senior, their likes, dislikes, and what they want to do with their future.  I collaborate with you to create images that are unique to them and who they are right now.

 I want your Senior to have an experience they will remember, and for you to have a print album and artwork that you're proud to hang on your walls for years to come.  

You deserve more than cookie cutter Senior Portraits!

Nice to meet you!

As a Mom of three adult daughters, I get it that this year is about embracing and expressing their identity. I work with seniors 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 am excited to chat with you and walk you through each step of the process so that you get amazing photos and artwork that you hang on your walls and enjoy every day, instead of them sitting on a thumb drive in a drawer.
