Woohoo, senior year is almost here and it is a big deal. You'll be at the top of your class and you worked hard to get there while likely taking on too many activities between academics, school sports, clubs, music or extracurriculars. You may not realize this but you are the leader the underclassmen all want to become and who can blame them? You have the experiences and connections to make high school a great experience.
Your senior year is going to be packed with activities, dances and memories to last a lifetime and I am super excited to meet you and hear what you are looking forward to most. And if you have selected a college - lets get those #Future(insert college) pictures!
My specialty for senior pictures in Spokane is to get outside someplace naturally beautiful, think rocky rivers, mountains, grass or wildflower fields, lush gardens, or local parks and enjoy ourselves as we wander around. I know that you will love your senior pictures and I cant wait for you to see how beautiful you are.
Lets let loose, laugh, be ok with being a bit awkward or goofy at times and celebrate! Shoot, bring along your family or a friend to add to the experience! Your photo session is zero stress with natural movement and simple directed poses so you can be comfortable the entire time.
What happiness! Lets bring out your upbeat, positive, happy spirit by creating a powerful, joy filled photographic representation of your finale to 12+ years of education and your move from childhood to adulthood.
Joyful• Natural• Beautiful
Locations will be heavily aimed to outdoor settings with wild to tamed nature as seen in the variety of our city and state parks.
Posing will be simple, natural, and comfortable. Why? Because your comfort and confidence shines when you feel like yourself.
You are beautiful. Lets show that off! Bring out your prettiest dresses and outfits. I will be looking for the perfect light and scenery to make your beauty shine through.
What could be easier - send me a message and we will get going on your senior pictures! All I require is a signed contract to reserve your session.
Most senior sessions are scheduled for the fall, winter or spring of your junior year to the summer going into your senior year.
I love photographing in all seasons! Summer is fun, warm and bright making bold senior photos. Fall is full of rich warm colors and striking textures. Winter is pure magic with snow on the ground. Spring is full of new life and beautiful flowers making for joyful and cheery photos. You cannot go wrong. What is your favorite season?
Step 1 of 5
Once you sign your contract, I will send you a senior photo style guide that is sure to help you find the best look for your senior pictures. I recommend you choose 3 to 5 outfits. Try something fancy, something fun, something professional, a dance or future college outfit, or your favorite formal dress. Share your outfit choices with me and I will help select the best locations. This is a good time to schedule a hair and make up session. You may even want to bring a stylist with you for outfit changes. Let me know if you plan to do this so I can plan for the added time.
There are so many incredible places for senior pictures in Spokane and in the surrounding areas. I look for natural textures and great light and find those at your school and in the many city, county and state parks around us. I use grass covered hills, a rocky lake or river shores, tree lined trails, a mountain scene or a backyard garden in full bloom.
Style & Location
Step 2 of 5
After your hair and makeup session, we will meet up at your chosen location and make more personal introductions. The first few minutes are all about getting comfortable, enjoying a beautiful place and talking through the session.
Depending on the variety available to a location we may do 1-3 outfits before going someplace else. I like to spend about 20 minutes per outfit and aim to keep sessions from 1-2 hours long to keep your smile and excited energy fresh.
Your Portrait Session
Step 3 of 5
I want you to know that printing is by far the most important step of your senior picture experience. These powerful images signify the end of your childhood life and the start of your journey as an adult. To help you get the most value out of your session, a print and product menu will come with your contract. I offer 3 collections to choose from. All collections include the senior picture essentials; an album, wall art and gift prints. Additional prints, digital images and announcement cards can be purchased al la carte. This is my way of serving you to the best of my professional ability.
Your photos will be available as an online gallery so you can choose what images speak to you the most. I am super excited to see what you choose!
Choose Your Images
Step 4 of 5
Woohoo! I will let you know when your photos are printed and ready. Unboxing these prints is going to be pure joy and I am excited to hear what you think of them!
After your session, stay connected with me! Life is full of new memories, and milestones and I look forward to celebrating each of those with you.

If I could rate Nate more than 5 stars I would. Nate captured our whole wedding day perfectly. The pictures were amazing and came back in a timely manner. He was very easy to communicate and work with. My husband and I will have memories to last a lifetime because of him.
