Downtown South Bend Senior Portraits

Photographing high school senior sessions is probably my very favorite genres of photography. I love customizing and stylizing with each senior so that their senior pictures reflect who they are as an individual. Giving them this extra attention to detail is a great way for us to connect before their shoot and have a fun and stress free senior session the day of. There are a few important things to discuss before any portrait session and one of the big details is location. "Where would you like to be photographed?" This has my seniors and parents asking for advice and guidance and this is where I love to help.

As a photographer based in New Carlisle, Indiana I have to have a few locations for my clients in my back pocket. One of my favorite locations is our awesome Downtown South Bend area. I have a few "sweet spots" that photograph beautifully and give my senior sessions variety and visual interest in their galleries. It's always a good idea to bring a couple outfits to change into for variation.

This is Emily. She wanted her senior session photographed in the city. You wouldn't know it from her photos, but in the midwest spring is COLD! Bless her heart, she made it through and pretended to be warm.

Emily is a 2021 graduate of New Prairie High School in New Carlisle. She will be attending Indiana University in the Fall. She loves her dog, playing guitar, and drawing.









I love getting to know my teen clients, we end up becoming friends and having an amazing time. Parents... seniors... your high school photo shoot should be easy and stress free. I know it's a lot of work; choosing outfits, planning hair, makeup, and nails, deciding location and props (if any). That's why I am here to help and guide you along the way. I offer multiple sessions for those who want to document their achievements in each of our gorgeous, midwest seasons too. Be sure to book your senior session while your teen is a junior or early spring of their senior year. I can't wait to meet all of you new faces out there!
