My number one priority as your senior photographer is to capture the real, natural joy during such an exciting season of your life. I want to capture you in beautiful, natural photos that reflect your happiness and give you memories to look back on for years to come. I have been photographing seniors for almost a decade - and can promise you an experience like no one else!
If you’re reading this, I want you to know that I have been exactly where you are. Senior year is such an incredible season full of memories that will leave a lasting impact on your heart: pep rallies, senior events, prom, college night, campus visits and big decisions. And, it’s also a season of scary choices and life change. I still remember my own senior year like it was yesterday!
Hey there! I am so glad you are here! Documenting your senior year of high school or college is an absolute passion of mine. I believe you deserve beautiful images as you arrive at this amazing milestone in your life. I also know that this is a time to make a lot of decisions but don''t worry I am here to help you along the way. I may be a photographer, but I am also an amazing friend to have. I want to help you create timeless images for you to invoke emotion when you look at them for years to come.
I'm Joelynn, an Indiana native, wife, boy mom, lover of all things books, romantic movies, online boutiques, and an occasional cocktail. In my downtime you can find me snuggled up on the couch readying or watching reruns of Schitts Creek.
Once you have secured your date with a paid retainer & signed contract, you will receive your very own online Senior Style Guide as well as your senior questionnaire! This is where you will find everything you need to know about what to wear, how to prep & what to expect. Your questionnaire will teach me everything I need to know about you & your vision for your senior session, so that I can customize it just for you!
The fun begins! After working together to choose the perfect locations & plan out the details of your session, we will meet on-location to begin your senior portrait experience. I will help you finalize your outfit choices & style your wardrobe to be picture-perfect before we start shooting. Then, we will spend 1.5-2 hours photographing at 2-3 locations with 3-4 outfit changes. I will pose & guide you throughout the entire session - no modeling experience necessary! Your only job is to have fun & enjoy the day!
On the night of your senior session, I will share a social media sneak peek for you to see & share! Then, it will be about 2-3 weeks until you receive your full senior portrait gallery online. I pride myself on these quick turnaround times - I'll never make you wait months to see your photos!
After 2-3 weeks, your full online gallery will be delivered! Here, you will be able to download, share, & print all of your fully edited, high resolution digital files. You will also have access to your very own mobile app where you can download your images directly to your iPhone or Android. And, even better? Your gallery will be backed up for ONE YEAR online - so you don't ever have to worry about losing images! The hardest part will be choosing your weekly #seniorsunday post.
