SENIORS

I promised I would never photograph seniors when I first started shooting. The thought of posing only one person with cheesy props wasn't for me. Little did I know that  high school seniors would honestly become my favorite people to photograph. 

I’ve spent the past year deconstructing the way I do things and reviving my senior process. I’ve solidified my mission and it’s simply this: I want high school seniors to know unshakably that they’ve been made on purpose with beauty and value and they have a place here. I genuinely believe they have what it takes to infuse kindness and healing back into this world. And I wanna be a part of reminding them of that beauty and value already in them so they can turn around and call it out of others.

I’m just picturing a generation of girls who know their worth and unique value and are quick to point it out in each other. Who turn to their friend and say, “you have a place here. We need you.” Who knows if senior photos can do that, but I’m sure gonna try. Sound like something you wanna be a part of too? Let's go!


SENIORS

DESIRE AN EXPERIENCE AND A RELATIONSHIP

1

If you just want your senior photos to get over with quickly and you want standard pictures of you leaning against a fence, I'm not for you. This is not a one-size-fits-all, copy and paste senior photo generator. I believe senior photos should be more than that. I want this to be an experience where you feel known and celebrated uniquely. I've created a customized process that allows me to get to know you so that we can work together to define and draw out your true personality and preferences to create a session together that is specific to you. I believe getting to know you is essential to photographing you completely and accurately and beautifully.

You are rare and special. Your photos should reflect that. I think the smiling, posed photos are super important and I also believe candid, real, creative images are too. Movement + genuine emotion are something I strive to bring to each image.

BELIEVE PHOTOS ARE BEST VIEWED IN PRINT

I know, I know. Everything's digital, can be googled, instantly downloaded. We have access to more and can get it quicker than ever before. For me, printing photos is one way to slow down time, to relive a moment. It invites you in to be a part of something once lost that forces you to remember exactly how it looked and exactly how it felt. You'll want these in print one day, I promise. Especially lookin at you, Mom.

we all want photos that Represent our truest self. I want to give you an experience that goes beyond the images and reflects your soul. From the moment you inquire to the delivery of your gallery, I want to you to feel seen + Known + Celebrated.

I'll get the posey shots for the grandparents too, but I want to tell your story + tell about your heart in a creative, fun, and unique way.

You're officially a SHP Senior once you've signed the contract, paid your deposit, and we have a date set on the calendar. 

You'll receive a guide that will help us tailor your session just for you! The guide includes questions and tips that will help me get a feel for who you are and what you like. We'll chat on the phone so I can get to know you even more and from there I'll create a customized plan for your session. By the end of the process, we'll know exactly what you're wearing and where we're taking photos. 

Today's the day! After you choose your outfits and I've scouted out some perfect locations that reflect you, we'll hang out and I'll have my camera in hand to capture it all.

2-3 weeks after your session you'll receive an invite via email to your personalized gallery filled with photos! 

Albums and prints are the perfect way to display your senior photos and help you remember this time of life forever.  If you want to go one step further and order an album or prints, you'll pick the photos (or I can too) and I'll arrange them in a beautiful design. Each album is customized to you with your name and class year, your choice of font + cover color. 

why order an album?

i'm glad you asked

Your professional photos are sacred moments of remembrance that are meant to be tangibly held and lingered over, not to be quickly clicked through.

Your Senior Year, with all it's ups and downs, holds some of your most soul-shaping moments. You're closing a chapter and starting a new one, making big decisions, figuring out what you believe, and becoming more confident in who you are. It's a pivotal time in your life that marks the shift into adulthood. 

These printed photos will be a forever reminder of who you were, where you've been, and what you've walked through. They will hold cherished memories you'll look back on to show measure how far you've grown.

Let's get your senior photos off of the screen and into your hands.

I had always admired Susie's beautiful work and knew that getting my senior pictures taken by her was a given. No surprise here, but it was the best decision I could have made. In the time we were together, Susie captured my authentic smile (which is very evident in the pictures), and the two of us shared genuine laughter while walking the streets of Downtown Carlisle. When I look back on my senior pictures, I don't think about the pain and stress of senior year. These pictures represent the love I have for my town, happy afternoons spent at the Creperie, and the fond memories made throughout my high school years. Lastly, I have to accredit such a memorable shoot to Susie's sweet personality and kind soul--she can truly reach anyone and make them feel like they are beautiful and special

Susie was nothing short of an absolute light to be around. she was so easy to work with and always guided me in whatever way she could. It was an added bonus that she was so energetic and made me laugh constantly! when I looked back at them they turned out better than I ever could have imagined! Susie clearly tries her hardest to make you feel as comfortable as possible all the while being so smiley and friendly. She truly brings out your most genuine self and captures it perfectly. Taking my senior pictures with her was one of the best decisions and I highly recommend to every senior!

I loved how my photos turned out! Susie is such a genuine person that truly cared about capturing me for who I was. SHE HELPED ME FIND A SUPER COOL LOCATION AND WAS willing to meet me wherever I chose to make sure that I loved my pictures. SHE IS such a down to earth person that perfectly captured the style I wanted for my senior pictures. It was an awesome memory that I'll never FORGET!

As soon as I met Susie, I knew I chose the best photographer for my senior pictures. She is incredibly sweet and has an amazing eye for photography! Susie is a great person to work with and goes to great lengths to guarantee you have the pictures you imagined. My experience was absolutely amazing, and Susie also helped me feel incredibly confident during my shoot with her. If you want a photographer who is skilled, flexible, and encouraging, I can assure you that Susie will do an excellent job!

My session with Susie was phenomenal. I'd never had professional pictures taken before and she made me feel so comfortable and made our session so fun. She was open to trying some of my ideas and I appreciated her willingness to make my ideas work. She knew exactly which places would work well with the light we were given and which poses worked better for me. She truly has a gift for photography and knows what she's doing! I loved every single one of my pictures and I look forward to working with her again!
