This is your senior year {that you already knew}! It’s an exciting + inspiring ride of lasts in your final high school chapter. And my Senior Girl Friend this is a milestone that NEEDS to be, no, MUST be captured. Don’t let it pass you by!

rave reviews

Andrea is simply amazing!”

“From the moment we booked to each appointment through the process, our satisfaction in selecting Shining Moments Photography for Sammi’s senior pictures increased. Andrea makes a significant effort to get to know the senior she is working with and what’s important to them personally.”

Penni W.

Senior Mom

“I couldn’t be happier!”

“My photo session was the most relaxed photo session I have had. Having a relationship that I built with Andrea was something that I can’t put into words. There was no pressure to do poses that I didn’t feel comfortable with. When I saw the preview of my senior pictures, my jaw dropped. Nobody had ever captured me in the way that Andrea had. My photos turned out fantastic, I couldn’t be happier”



“Fabulous! Fun! Entertaining!”

“Andrea goes above and beyond to capture unbelievable photographs! She does this by getting to know the people {and families} she is photographing. We love Andrea, she is caring, compassionate, and has a wonderful personality that can’t help but make people smile/laugh!”

1. Pick Your Collection

2. Fill out the SMP Reservation Form

{If you have questions:: Contact me by email, phone, or my contact form.}   

3. We select your date, fill out the senior questionnaire & we get planning! 

Your date is reserved with a 50% deposit


I’ve added this to the FAQ because you’re not the only one who thinks this. Through the SMP website you see, “Fun stories that capture YOUR shine” or “It’s time to share your SPARKLE!” We all have that special shine + I love seeing it through my lens so you can see it too!

where do you photograph seniors?

Depending on your story, we can shoot in a natural/urban setting, or both. I’ve also shot seniors at their personal location or home, which gives you a one-of-a kind backdrop. Wherever the locations we will tell a story that’s uniquely you.



Most importantly, wear what you love right now! We’re telling YOUR STORY + that comes through in what you wear. I give you the SMP eStyle Guide for idea starters. I’m also just a text or email away if you’re out shopping & want help.


Your senior pictures are a special day all about YOU! Going to a makeup artist  is a special pampering + they know how to give you a photo finish that photographs well. I’ve also had seniors do their own makeup and my SMP Camera Ready Makeup Guide helps you shine with that too. The same goes for your hair, professionally or personally done. But make hairspray your BFF that day! Extra hold to keep the curls, straights + vanish fly-aways.


In 5-10 days, you’ll receive an email with your private gallery link + password to access your digital files. We’ll discuss all the ways I can design art for your walls from the SMP Product Guide {and apply your Collection credit if you have one}.
