the session experiences

At Carlson Photography, your high school senior portrait session is all about YOU --- who you are and what you love.  Your images will look like no one else's. We take the time to get to know you, so we can give you the portrait experience you are looking for.  If you want to be pampered, you got it.  If you're not sure what to wear, we've got you covered with our Senior Portrait Guide filled with tips and suggestions.  Guys --- we know mom wants amazing images of you, and you just want this done.  No worries! We promise your session will be easy and fun!

All sessions include a pre-session Sneak Peek at our studio (where you get more ideas on what you can do for your session and a tour of our studio and photography locations) and a personal Image Reveal where you select your favorite images and order your portrait art about a week after the photography session.
