Now Scheduling Sessions for 2021 Seniors! Call 614.893.7425 today for best times!

My focus is to create Class of 2021 senior pictures that are uniquely YOU! As a Columbus, Ohio senior portrait photographer, I take time to get to know each senior portrait client and develop an individualized portrait session that captures your personality, character, style and interests. I am adept at getting each of my seniors to look and feel natural and comfortable in front of the camera – and have fun during a relaxed and casual photo session.

I shoot both in my downtown Columbus warehouse/NYC loft style studio and on location. I have scouted and shoot in unique urban, suburban, warehouse, scenic, park and natural locations throughout central Ohio, including downtown Columbus, the Scioto Mile, Main Street Bridge, North Bank Park and many others. We can also shoot at a location of your choosing. Whether you are looking for creative portraits in a professional studio, green space, park or an urban warehouse setting, I have you covered.

Of course, I welcome your thoughts and ideas or you can leave it to me to suggest creative options, locations and ideas for your portrait session.

My senior portraits for guys are relaxed, casual and a reflection of each guy’s individual look, style and personality.

My senior portraits for girls are fashionable, stylish and a creative capture of each girl’s personal style and grace.

I have been photographing Columbus senior pictures for 16 years. I shoot both formal portraits, artistic portraits and dynamic, lifestyle portraits. I am often told by my seniors that they selected me for their portrait because my images are creative and uniquely different than the portraits of other students in their class.

Best of all, my senior portraits are affordable and packages are designed so you get what you want and don’t pay for things you may not want. And are geared towards creating prints and one-of-a-kind, signature portrait wall art that will last a lifetime.
