Hello Gorgeous!

You deserve the Ultimate Senior PORTRAIT Experience!

For many of us, 2020 was a year of disappointments and adjusting to a new normal. I don't know about you, but I tried to stay positive and focused on what I could control but even that can take a toll. As we come out of this whole ordeal and begin to heal, I feel that it is the perfect time to really honor and celebrate our students who persevered through it all. If 2020 has taught us anything, its that life is unpredictable and much happens outside of our control. Many decisions have been made for us and our teens in this last year and a half but how you decide to capture this milestone in senior portraits is a decision you have full control over. I believe that these images are some of the most important ones to capture and that we can do so in a way that leaves a lasting positive impression on your senior. It might even be an experience that is a highlight of the year.

 

There are so many voices in and around teens that are trying to gain purchase in defining who they are. Teens seem to hear them saying they are too much of this or not enough of that or they aren't good enough at being just like everyone else. You and I both know those voices are all lies and I want to purposefully create an experience for your senior to remember the truth of just how intelligent, wonderful, and beautiful they are. Let's design a session that is full of their personality and then lets pair those stunning images with thoughts from the people who know and love your senior the most to really remind them how perfect they are. This Ultimate Senior Portrait Experience will be fun, life-giving, and exactly what your senior deserves after all they have gone through. 

"I don't even have words for what I felt when I first saw my images, I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement. I could not stop smiling my heart was so happy. Showing people my pictures all I get is compliments, all thanks to the most amazing photographer."

"Larissa’s personality won us over. Then to see the creative ways she showcases each senior was a bonus. Larissa was with us at every stage from offering helpful advice selecting outfits to personally delivering our photos.

 

Larissa didn’t make us feel like this was simply a photo session or a shoot. She took the time to get to know our senior and listened to her interests and dreams. Larissa didn’t just take senior photos she captured images that tell a story. "

Session Investment

My Ultimate Senior Portrait Experience is one that makes sure that you and your family have images that are full of personality and the option to print your images in a way that allows you to display your images in your home. But I also know that in this day and age, digital images are so important. So not only does this experience honor and celebrate your senior but it also includes help in deciding what prints, products, and digital images are needed for your family to be able to enjoy this milestone for decades. 

A Life-giving 

experience

It's more than just pictures - its creating the space to let your kid know just how amazing they are in a confidence boosting way.

 images full of 

personality

The process ensures that your senior is honored and celebrated for being the best version of themselves and images that are SO THEM!

CUstom heirloom products

But as I always say, these images deserve to be printed so you also have the chance to purchase heirloom products. 

The cost for the Ultimate Senior Portrait Experience varies depending on the products and images that each family decides to purchase. To book the session, there is a non-refundable retainer of $250 which will secure your date on the calendar and covers the time to plan and photograph your session. Additionally, families will decide to create products with me to showcase their images and traditionally spend between $1200-$3200 on these heirloom products.

A Note from Larissa

So let me just say I am super pumped that you are here! For one, that means that you have found yourself staring your senior year full in the face and I know there are a lot of emotions that come along with that but I hope one of them is just a ton of immense pride that you made it this far! I hope that is also mixed with some serious excitement because senior year can be one of the best times in life! I am honored that I get to be a part of senior year for the most incredible seniors in Northern Colorado and I really do not take that lightly at all. I am dedicated to capturing all the amazingness that you are in your senior portrait images. That means that I will be there every step of the way to help you plan out the coolest location, select the best looks, and to have the most incredible experience during your senior session. With me, it's not just about getting a pretty picture in the yearbook-- its about so much more! You only get to be a senior once and capturing all that you have accomplished and the amazing person you are growing into should be reflected in your senior portrait images.

 

So its important to know that I am a teacher because being a part of teenagers' lives is what I am all about. Getting to know the students around me is something that I love to do and it just fuels me. Running into a client who I haven't seen since her senior session is seriously so much fun and I love that quick hug and catch up or meeting for coffee to really dive into what has been going on. Being able to get to know my clients is such a blessing and it only helps me make their senior portrait session that much better!

One of my favorite parts of a senior session is that moment when my client realizes that she is totally capable of just rocking it in front of the camera. The awkwardness fades, the comfort sets in, and this gorgeous confidence just takes over. The images we are able to create together are so amazing when I know a little bit more about what makes you tick and we just go out and have an incredible time capturing YOU!

                                            When I am not at school or out capturing some gorgeous senior, I am with my husband Eric and two little kiddos, Quinnley and Camden. More often

then not we are out as family at some sporting event or playing outside.

I really feel like this is such an amazing blessing to do what I do and

I hope I get to work with you to create some gorgeous artistic senior

portraits together! Lets plan out the most amazing session and make

sure your senior portrait experience is one you will never forget!

Let's do this, Gorgeous!
