“I was worried I would not be pleased with how I looked in the pictures, but Jennifer is amazing and had the greatest poses and takes such wonderful pictures! She made me feel comfortable and we had a lot of fun during my shoot! I also loved getting to know her and being in touch before and after the shoot. Jennifer makes you feel so beautiful!”
Showing you this truth through my camera lens is the biggest reason that I love being a Senior Portrait Artist. I want you to come away from your Senior Portrait Experience with a fresh sense of how truly beautiful and awesome you really are. This is more than a business to me, it is a real privilege to get to know you and your story, and to help celebrate this milestone in your life.
I’m sure you want to have the best Senior Portrait Experience possible, so I will walk with you through every step of the process. My goal is for you to have an amazing experience that truly captures the authentic and beautiful you.
“Jennifer creates beautiful, natural photos that are unique to other senior pictures! The experience was fabulous! Really I don't think I could've asked for better senior pictures. Jennifer really knows what she's doing. It's an investment you won't regret!”
Here's everything you need to know about each step of your own personalized Senior Portrait Experience!
In the weeks before your session, we can chat as often as you like about your vision for your Senior Portrait Experience. We'll talk about your personality, the "look" you want, and locations in the Grand Rapids or lakeshore area that will make you shine. You can even stop by my house with your outfit ideas or send me pics for feedback. For the best Senior Portrait Experience, I encourage you to plan to have your makeup applied by one of my makeup artists, who specialize in bringing out your best features with photo-ready makeup. You will love how amazing you'll look! I am here for YOU - from the start of the process to the end! I know this experience can be stressful - but you can lean on me!
It’s your big day! We’ll be in touch to confirm the gameplan. Then, the fun begins! You may be nervous at first, but you'll soon relax and find your inner model. Plus, we usually laugh a LOT! I also love to give you some sneak peeks at the back of my camera to show you how amazing you are looking. Plan on changing clothes in your car. You may want to wear something like bike shorts and a tank top under your outfits to make it easier. You must arrange your own transportation to the session and between locations, if applicable. Parents (especially mom) are welcome to join us - and even jump in for some quick photos!
You'll be so excited to see your photos! About two weeks after your photo session I will set up an ordering appointment with you and your parent(s). There you'll get to see your gallery of awesome final images for the first time, and I will bring samples of all the great products I offer. Together, I'll help you sort through the options and figure out what will best showcase your images, and we will place your order. All financial decision makers need to be present at the appointment (usually mom and dad). You can prepare by making a list of prints and sizes you need for the home and for relatives, as well as thinking about what wall spaces will best showcase a storyboard or a gallery of larger images.

“Jennifer was so involved throughout the entire process which was wonderful. I loved that she was willing to take the time to give input on any concerns or questions I had! I also loved that Jennifer was able to make me feel so comfortable and confident on camera. My senior picture experience was so fun and memorable because of her, and I would recommend her to any one of my friends.”
It's unnerving enough getting your photos taken. Especially by someone you don't know very well. But I will do everything I can to make you feel comfortable, and that includes taking time to get to know you - because you are unique! I try to meet with every one of my senior clients in person at least once before their session to grab a cup of coffee and chat. I'm all about relationships and keeping it real.
There are a lot of people out there with "nice cameras." But what sets me apart is my in-depth knowledge of my camera, my lenses, and my lighting equipment and exactly how to use them to to make you look fantastic. Not only have I put in my time training and developing my skills, I continue to strive to be better and better at what I do.
I am not a high-volume portrait photographer, and I don't want to be. I would rather take on fewer clients and be more available via text, email, message, or phone, for whatever you might need. I will walk you through this whole process from start to finish. So send me pics of your outfits. Text me your ideas. Email me your questions. I'm here for you!
It is super important to me that your photos reflect the real you. Nothing fake, nothing awkward, nothing overdone. Just you, feeling confident and beautiful, looking natural and amazing. Plus, whether you're quiet, serious, spunky, dramatic, or carefree, you can BE YOURSELF and HAVE FUN! Because I spend time getting to know you, I can capture who you really are in my photography.
