genuine and joy-filled portraits during one of the most exciting seasons of life

Seniors

Seniors

Senior portrait sessions are what truly began my career in photography and still hold a huge piece of my heart. After taking a few friends' senior portraits as I myself was a senior in high school, I started to pick up traction in the North Alabama area, eventually shooting sessions in Huntsville, Florence, and Birmingham. Now, having captured portraits for over 100 high school seniors and counting, I go into senior portrait sessions to intentionally capture the joy of senior year; whether that joy is captured on a football field in a cheerleading uniform, in an open field with wild flowers all around, or fiercely posing in downtown Birmingham, my goal is to capture the most natural and genuine YOU.

Here's what you can expect with me as your senior photographer:

01. Authenticity

Your portraits will look like you-- the confident, joyful, fabulous YOU! 

02. Confidence

Worried you won't know what to do with your hands? No need! I'll instruct you throughout your entire portrait session and pose you naturally from head to toe.

03. Transparency

You will always have the information needed to have the most perfect senior portrait experience. It begins with a senior style guide sent after booking, a location guide to help you choose your perfect portrait locations, and an easy, surprise-free album delivery process. All your edited, high-resolution images are delivered with printing rights, no required purchase minimums, and no additional fees. 

They are hopeful for their futures & excited for what is to come.

Olivia B. Seniors are excited for their senior year, whether it be spent in sports practices, pep rallies, working their first jobs, or preparing to attend their dream college.

My pictures turned out better than I ever could have imagined! She made the process so easy from helping decide outfits to choosing locations and even giving posing tips! I could not have picked anyone better for my senior portraits!

I have photographed over one hundred high school seniors since the start of my business in 2015, and each of those senior portrait experiences have begun the same way-- an initial conversation! 

After submitting your inquiry, we will chat about what you are looking for in your senior session, how the Olivia B. Portrait experience will be unique to you, and-- best of all-- start discussing dates to get you in front of my camera!

Let's chat!

For portrait session purposes, I divide my calendar into four different 'seasons': Spring (March-early May), Early Summer (May-June), Late Summer (August-September), and Fall (October-early December). I shoot senior portrait sessions on weekday evenings, with session typically starting between 2-3 hours before sunset. 

We will work together to find a date that works for both of us, and once the session date is decided, you will submit a $100 retainer payment and sign your session contract to be fully confirmed on my calendar. The retainer payment goes towards the cost of your session! All payments and paperwork can be done online for your convenience!

Along with the senior style guide, I will send over a questionnaire to get answers from you to help prepare me for your session! The questionnaire gives you the opportunity to tell me what you are excited for and would like out of your portrait session, as well as a chance to share anything you may be nervous about. 

After completing the questionnaire, I will send over a few last minute recommendations for your portrait session.
