Welcome! You have been waiting for three years to become a senior, and finally, that day is here! As you move into this fast-paced, thrilling time of your life, this will be one of the most memorable years you will look back upon.
This is why your senior portrait session is so important. Not only will these images be forever published in the senior yearbook, your senior photos will be proudly displayed on the mantles of your friends and family and shared around the world on social media.
Needless to say, your senior pictures represent one of the most exciting photo sessions you will ever have, likely second only to your wedding. We would love to help you mark this unique time in your life with an epic senior photo session that will bring out your true, authentic personality, while giving you an adventurous, glamorous and remarkably fun day!

This was my first professional photo shoot I have experienced, and I was extremely nervous going into it. I didn’t know what to expect, but when I had arrived to the site where we were shooting he was extremely nice. He could tell I was nervous and told me to just have fun and that is exactly what I did. He made sure I received the shots that I wanted and I was happy with them. Matt also was extremely organized and got every little detail. It was such a pleasure working with him and the end results blew me away. He truly knows what he is doing and he wants to make sure he captures the perfect moment.
