“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”

-Ansel Adams-


in your SMP experience, I’m here to celebrate You + Your Story

YOUR YEAR – YOUR STORY.  Shining Moments Photography captures those milestones in telling your senior year and documenting your personal brand in business.

Remember the picture books you loved as a child? I am creating your very own story through my lens curating the ending of your high school chapter or the beginning of your new business venture. 

I bring together your favorite memories or the pieces that make you a notable Brand in business.

Take a peek around Shining Moments Photography if you’re in Northern Illinois and see how I can help your High School Senior Girls + Guys Portraits, Headshots, or Personal Brand {links in the new gold color of course} SHINE!

When you reserve your portraits I tailor your session to tell your unique story through photography.
