If you’re an upper class-man school life is getting real busy! You have the ACT/SAT to prep for, your senior pictures, college visits, and the list could scroll down your phone for 18-minutes.

You’re allllllll-most done, but there’s still a long way to go

{Sorry if I’m the first to break that to ya}.

The GOOD NEWS is that I’ve been immersed in high school + senior year life for awhile and I’ve collected some good intel to help.

I’m not writing your college application essay for you though. Been there – done that – don’t wanna go back!


Decide whether you’re taking the SAT or the ACT. Colleges accept both scores. I know Midwest colleges lean toward the ACT and Northwest colleges lean toward the SAT, but as long as you have a score from one of the tests you’re golden. Your high school typically administers at least one of these tests during the school day {YAY YOU – you don’t have to give up a coveted Saturday}.

Whad-da-ya mean I need a yearbook photo? Every 2020 senior gets that postcard in the mail to get their senior yearbook photo taken. Take a look at the yearbook photo post to get the whole story on if you HAVE to go.

If you’re planning to have a graduation party, then my Graduation Party Checklist is a MUST-HAVE!

And last BUT DEFINITELY NOT LEAST get your Fall senior portraits scheduled!

My High School Girls + Guys…You only graduate high school once, capture the moment!

I capture your best self before you head off to live your best life!

Cheers & SPARKLES to the start of a FANTASTIC year!
