the Senior Portrait pro at
J&S Photography!

One of my favorite parts of Senior Portrait Sessions is getting to know each Senior that spends time in front of my camera—And I want to help you get to know me too! Here’s a bit of my story:


I came to the world of photography partly by accident.


Like you, I started really getting to know myself when I was in High School. This was when I discovered photography for the first time. I started taking photos constantly—My camera and I were inseparable. My family and friends really liked what I was creating, so I decided to follow this thread to see where it would take me.


I went to the Hallmark Institute of Photography and studied literally every genre of the medium that I could, as well as how to successfully run a photography business. Photography has been my whole world, and my passion, ever since.

Why Senior Portraits?


I absolutely love giving my clients a fun, personalized, and modern approach to Senior Portraits. I’ve experienced the drag of your typical “Sit here in front of this boring backdrop and smile” school photos, so I love to offer a fresh perspective. This is a super exciting time in your life, so let’s celebrate it!


Ever since starting my own business, I’ve always known that I really loved Senior Portrait Sessions. I’m always challenging my own limits and pushing the bar to create something new and dynamic each time. No two Sessions are alike!


I love the technical side of creating eye-catching images, but I also love chatting with every Senior, learning about their lives, and hearing what they’re looking forward to as they go off into the world. I love seeing them get excited about the photos we create together, knowing that they’re enjoying an amazing opportunity to fully express themselves.


Those opportunities really are priceless in a world where you have the stress of exams, college applications, and deciding what career you want to have. Every moment to remember why YOU matter, matters.
