Our favorite senior sessions (Hint: It's all of them)


Show the world who you are.


We want you to love your senior portraits. It's actually a really big deal to us. We want to make sure you get exactly what you're looking for. If you don't know, we will guide you. We're full of ideas, locations and directions. If it's a studio style, natural light portraits, or traveling to your favorite destinations, the difference in our images is clear. We are lighting experts, can rock your poses, we push every session to create images that are creative and technically the best, all while having fun and making your session all about you.


because you are a crazy, unique person and we love that about you 

We want to know your passion. It might be playing, writing, or singing music, kayaking, fashion design, riding horses, sports, drama, or star gazing. Whatever it is, your passion will help us create the perfect theme for your senior picture. Write down a few notes describing your favorite things to do, your hobbies, your dreams, and your goals after graduation. Most importantly, tell us how you envision your senior photographs. All of this information aids us to design the ideal senior picture session for you, and produce an image both you and your family will love.



We are always staying FRESH and UNIQUE! We are always looking for new and fascinating locations for your outdoor sessions. Plus, we are always up for your ideas too. Nothing is off limits for us!


I don’t use the same poses on everyone. Each person that comes in our doors is unique physically and emotionally. We work with your features to make you look your best.


We take the time to get to know you. Your personality is key to showing “who you are” in your portraits. All you have to do is relax and let us make your personality shine through!


Lighting is a passion. We use techniques to flatter your face and body, and as a tool to create different moods and looks. We use techniques to make you look your best, inside or out, ensuring you get the Shalista Photography LOOK.
