Did you think Northern Kentucky only had the same old, boring traditional studio options for senior pictures? Nope.  My Senior Portrait Experience is  the most sought after in Northern Kentucky.  Teens travel from all over to have their graduation photos taken by me. Gone are the days when teens wanted all of those awkward poses on fake backdrops in a small room filled with corny props to sit next to, or hold in their hands. Sure, those studios lure you in with a “free” yearbook photo but is it really free?

I do my best to create classic images that capture the beauty and personality of your child without making them feel uncomfortable in the process.  If you want images that you won’t look back on later and think “why”, ditch the props and the fake backgrounds. All they are good for is dating your photos.  Let’s save that for the hairstyles and clothing choices. LOL


What locations in Northern Kentucky are best for senior pictures?

NKY has some great locations for a photo shoot. Use the links below to see some of the examples.  More will be added so keep this post as a bookmark for future reference.

Newport is a favorite place for a senior photos in the city.  There is so much you can find just by driving around spontaneously during your session. The Levee is also a great spot overlooking the river!

Further out in the county, if you are fortunate enough to have a membership to the Bob White Club, you can have a wonderful time making gorgeous images all around the shooting range. They have a lake, and old boat dock and a pile of old boats along with plenty of fields as a backdrop.

AJ Jolly Park is also out that way so you can hop over there for some bridge shots and more images with the lake. It meets up with the golf course so if that’s your thing, bring some clubs!

Personal property of your own or of a friend is a great choice, too. It makes for a unique session because not everyone has access to it like a public park.
