Creating Senior Portrait Experiences

Our goal is to become the most sought-after high school senior portrait photographer in Virginia Beach. We have a nearly 3,000 square foot studio with a hair and makeup salon, and two studios that we are able to create dozens of sets and styles. We don’t create just a picture of you, we create an epic magazine style shoot specifically tailored to your personality and style. Our shoots last up to four hours, and we only photograph one senior per day.

After you hire us to create your Signature Senior Portrait Experience we work with you to create your one-of-a-kind shoot. We take care of all the planning and coordination between venue, and people needed for your shoot. With enough preparation, we schedule a time to go shopping with you, so we have the best selection of outfits and accessories for your vision. Your session starts with hair then makeup.

We will then head out to our selected location for your magazine style photo shoot and spend another 90-minutes capturing you at your very best.

Our professional stylist and MUA use camera-ready commercial makeup, so you look like a model getting ready to walk onto the pages of Vogue magazine. After hair and makeup, you will spend about 90-minutes in our studio changing outfits and creating your couture boutique portrait experience.


Once we are finished capturing all the images, we return to the studio and go through your favorite photos assigned for professional editing and print production. This is the most essential part of your shoot because this is where you select your images for print, your designer books, and other products.
