This shoot made me feel so confident about myself! Ivy picked all the perfect locations and I felt like she had me pose and shoot in ways that capture my personality! She also pushed my comfort zone a little which may have been scary in the moment but I love the way they turned out!

Ivy's excitement while she was taking pictures was contagious! She had the whole session planned out ahead of time and knew just where she wanted each outfit to be photographed. She was very attentive to details, color, and light and knew all the best spots to shoot. I would recommend Ivy to anyone looking to get their picture taken! She made the day memorable, from start to finish!

Where do we shoot?


A social media file is just that, a low resolution digital file perfect for sharing on your social media platforms. This can not be used for print. A digital license is a digital print file in a high resolution that you can use to make as many prints as you want sized 8x12 or smaller. Perfect for making all the aunts and uncles and grandparents those 5x7 and 8x10 prints they want because they love your photos so much.. they love them so much they want them all! Buying a collection with the digital print files will save you money and make your relatives super happy. The digital print files are also perfect for DIY graduation announcements.

What is the difference between a social media file and digital licensing?


Hair and makeup is included in the collections listed below. It can be added on to any session and is also available to Senior moms!

Brand: not included
Seniors: VIP, Be Seen, Editorial
Boudoir: all sessions

Is professional hair and makeup included?


Quick answer: No.
Long answer: Your session fee covers my time with you, meetings and computer work etc. It is also your retainer and holds your session date, so it is non-refundable. Your print order is placed on the same day as your session when you view all your photos. This is a separate transaction.

Are any photos included in the session price?
