Senior Portraits in Erie, PA

As a portrait photographer, senior portraits in Erie PA are some of my favorite projects to work on, as they present the opportunity to work one-on-one with so many unique, talented students. Each Erie senior I’ve gotten to work with has brought so much to the table, and it is such a privilege to capture the light that shines so easily through them.

Erie, PA : a Great Location for Senior Portraits

Erie is full of beautiful locations that I love to visit with students. Seniors who have long lived in Erie always have so many fun memories to share at each stop. Our basic senior portrait package allows for up to an hour and a half of pictures, with two different venues. We’ve found that this is perfect for our senior clients, who will have plenty of time to execute every desired pose, smile, or wind-blown hair toss. Our flexibility in choosing multiple locations gives us even more ways to let the senior shine.

Uniquely You

Every client is different — that’s what makes our job so fun! We take the time to get to know every subject before we take any pictures. We really want to capture you: not just your face, but who you are. No request is too big or small. These pictures are all about highlighting who you are at this point in your life. We challenge you to bring your best style, your loudest laugh, or even to wear your lucky socks. Think about all the things that made senior year special. Scoring the winning goal? Dancing the night away at prom? Curling up with your favorite books after a long day at school? If you loved it, we’ll preserve it with the perfect pictures.


While some students are ready to be hired on as models by the time their senior photo shoot is over, we know that some clients are a little more camera-shy. Don’t let that stop you from getting high-quality captures of these big milestones! Remember: we’re all about making this personal to you. We’ll do everything we can to ensure your comfort and confidence.

There is no better way to commemorate the end of a chapter — and the start of a brand-new one! — than with professional, personal senior portraits. If you or your student is heading into senior year, contact us for more information on scheduling your senior portrait session in Erie, Pa. It would be an honor to work with you.
