You're standing at the starting line of an unimaginable adventure!
Senior year is the year that you start plotting your route on your map of life. Senior sessions are my favorite because they most fully capture who you are at this time in your life. What your values are and what you stand for. The fashion that you loved. The activities that you spend your time at. What captures your passion, they all play a role in your senior year adventure and you deserve to have them preserved so that you can magically be transported back to these amazing days!
The most popular time to have your senior photos is from August through October. Location and type of adventure will play a role in when you should schedule your session and they do involve a little more planning, so if you are a natural procrastinator, you might want to start early!

How do you know if you want an adventure session or a local session?
Great question! My local sessions are restricted to within 30 miles of Salem and usually last 2 hours. You can check out some of my favorite local locations HERE, and don't get me wrong-picking the local session is great! BUT adventure sessions give you the flexibility to add more awesomeness! The whole day is dedicated to you! Location options are endless!! We get to incorporate more details to really enhance your photos. And the best part??? I can almost guarantee no one else will have the same location or as awesome of a yearbook photo as you do!
So what is involved in planning a senior adventure session?
Your consult is the best place to really get to know each other and customize your session. Here are some things that we work together on:
Your safety, comfort and fun are my top priorities. It's okay if you are not super experienced in the outdoors-I got you! At our consult, we pick a location that is perfect for you and talk about what is needed for that location...proper footwear, bug spray, potty supplies, etc. We discuss the trail and if needed download the map prior. I love to use GAIA app for my hiking trails! I usually pack a first-aid kit, flint, pocket knife, headlamp, emergency blanket, backpack stove, mugs, tea/coffee/cocoa, snacks for everyone, extra water or my purifier, blankets, and hand warmers or gloves for those cold weather shoots to ensure that we are good to go!
