Great Choice!

Get ready to explore your unique side and have a lot of fun doing it! We absolutely love photography and working with our clients! We believe no two sessions should be alike, and make it a priority to explore your personal interests in order to capture the amazing

images you want.


Even Better Timing!

For high school seniors, you are contacting us at a perfect time for the class of 2018. Clients booking a fall or winter appointment with us will be invited to participate in one of our promotional-styled shoots held each summer. Example shoots might include themes such as steampunk, daft circus, ultimate sports, fashion or fantasy couture, or industrial graffiti. The ideas are limitless.


Let's Get Started

Our session fee (“retainer") for H.S. Seniors and families is $375 plus applicable taxes. For commercial headshots, there is a one-time fee of $125 for a three-look session.  This payment covers time, planning consultation, talent, editing, web gallery, and a few watermarked social media photos. Digital images are not included as part of the $375 retainer. Full-resolution imaging is "in addition to" the session fee (retainer).


  • All H.S. Senior and family session bookings require a $200 retainer to reserve your day on our calendar.
  • All commercial headshot bookings require that the $125 session fee to be paid when the calendar reservation is made.
  • Retainers are non-refundable, but they go towards the cost of your total session price.
  • If you need to reschedule your appointment, we need to know at least 7 days in advance.



It All Starts With a Plan

Every portrait session starts with a planning consultation. For H.S. Seniors, we will meet with you to discuss any creative ideas while we look through your clothing choices, possible location ideas, and overall style, etc… This consult and extra planning is what really helps us bring out the personality of our clients in the photos. This session normally lasts around an hour and will occur at the studio.



The Fun Stuff

For your H.S. Senior portrait sessions, we will take you to 3-4 locations in Lawrence, and usually photograph about four (4) different outfits. This session will last approximately 4 hours.


Add-ons: Sessions lasting more than 4 hours and/or requiring more locations are available for an additional fee. Locations outside of the Douglas County area will incur a $55+ travel fee. We have the ability to shoot in our sister studio, which is in a KC West Bottoms warehouse for an additional fee. Let's discuss whether you want to explore any of these amazing options. We are also happy to consider more exotic session locations on an individual basis.



For H.S. Girls

We work exclusively with Lou & Co. to provide hair and makeup (HMUA) support just prior to your session and included in the session fee. They are also amazing in creating a look which captures your unique style. Additional services such as cut, color and/or time-intesive work may require additional fees. On-location HMUA support is also available for location shoots or all-day sessions for an additional fee. This should be discussed at your planning consultation.



Age Requirement

For clients under 18,  a parent is required to be present during the session and to fill out a release form.

Our Studio


We shoot with only the best equipment so you will always look your best...

We are always excited to shoot around town, whether here in Lawrence, Topeka or Kansas City.
