As you prepare to graduate, let’s celebrate all that you have achieved and capture what makes you unique…

Whether you are graduating or you are the parent of a senior, I'd love to hear from you and learn more about what your hopes and dreams are for this session! Please tell me about what makes your senior special, what their interests are and more about what you're hoping for in your session.

1. Say Hello

2. plan the session

Once you are locked in on my calendar, we will start planning your session! Choose your favorite spots around town or on campus and we will create a path to follow! If you're a high school grad, choose your favorite location type (urban, forest, etc) and I will help you find the best spot possible. I will also help you choose the best outfits for your session! We will discuss what to wear, what colors look best, and how to best rock your session.

3. ask me Anything

I am your guide throughout this entire process and I am here to help. I want you to ask questions and know that I will always be there for you. You are not alone in this graduation journey.

4. let's shoot

Yay!! We made it! We will meet and take your pictures!! 

Sessions will include a mixture of traditional poses as well as candid lifestyle moments. I will guide the session with prompts and poses so that you don't have to do it alone! Sessions typically last between 1-2 hours and involve multiple locations and 2 outfit changes.

5. your photographs

Within two weeks, you will receive your private edited gallery to preview and select which Portrait Package you would like to purchase. Prints, albums, and canvases are also available for purchase.

Lori is very great to work with and her photography is original! She will do absolutely anything you want, incorporating any idea or location you have in mind. Lori makes the sessions fun and gets her photography back to her customers as soon as she can. She always seems so excited during a shoot to see how the pictures turned out! ~Jasmine

We drove 2 hours to see Lori and glad we did! Quality of senior pictures were more than expected. She took the time to find out the feel of the pictures that my daughter was going for and found the perfect spots (even a rustic wood pile off a highway off ramp - who knew they would be my favorite pictures?!) She was able to offer different feels from city, country to sports gear. Lori is a gem! ~ Holly G. 

Lori did an excellent job with my son's graduation photos! The pictures were unique and excellent quality. (I had a difficult time picking a few for prints and announcements...a good problem to have.) Lori was professional, friendly and so helpful with the ordering process. I highly recommend Lori Pickens won't be disappointed! ~Nicki

I love Lori. She is very reasonable, very courteous, and very patient. I enjoyed every part of my senior session. She worked so hard for it to be unique and to fit the outfits I had picked out. I will definitely come back to her for anything I may need! ~Andrea

Gah!  Lori knocks it out of the park every time!  We are obsessed with our images.  She capture this goofy girl of ours perfectly.  If you want truly creative and unique senior photo Lori is your girl.  Schedule your senior with her immediately - we absolutely love her!  ~Trisha
