Your senior photos should be all about you enjoying how far you’ve come and where you’re going next. Let me make sure you can look back at your senior portraits and feel proud of your accomplishment! I want to get to know you, what your story has been so far and what your goals are for the future — and bring all of that into your graduate portraits.
As an ASU alumna (class of 2017) and an Arizona resident since 2015, I've spent time on almost all area university campuses and can help you customize your unique session experience.

What no one probably tells you is how almost no photo location is completely private. We'll encounter lots of people during our time together, especially while visiting landmarks on each major campus. I include removal of all unwanted people from my final edits as part of my client experience, and always factor in extra time during our sessions in case you have to share the stage with fellow grads.
When's the best time to book?
How does booking work?
Can you help with locations?
Do you offer mini sessions?
Can I bring a family member/friend to my session?
When are photos delivered?
It's never too early!
If you're a college grad, you usually can't order regalia (cap, gown, etc) until you register for graduation, which starts at the beginning of your final semester. Shipping times can vary, but usually take about 3 weeks to arrive.
For spring semester, I usually see my first sessions during spring break (first two weeks of March) and then am busy from then through May!
For fall semester, I see grads from mid-October through December, but this class is not as large.
These are also the most popular months for weddings in Arizona, so I'm busy across the board — make sure to reach out as soon as you can to grab your spot!
Once you reach out via the contact form, we'll find a date and I'll send a contract for you to sign. I also ask for 50% of the total session price as a retainer to reserve this date — I can't hold anything for you until both of these are complete.
Always! Let me know in your inquiry where you're graduating from and which location you're considering. I'm extremely familiar with both ASU and U of A campuses (ASU alumna, here) and will help customize a session that's unique to you on our planning call.
If you're looking to go off-campus, I have tons of suggestions for that too! This is an especially great idea if you're looking for photos near graduation time when the crowds are dense. I do charge a travel fee for locations more than a 30 mile radius outside of Tempe.
I don't currently offer mini sessions, because I want to give as much time and attention to each grad as I can! This is such an important milestone, and I feel our sessions are most worth your time when you have me for as long as you need. Especially for on-campus sessions near graduation time, we may be together for up to two hours to wait for the most popular spots.
This also allows me to spend more time in the communication and editing stages because I take on a smaller number of clients each semester.
Of course! The most important element involved in great photos is your comfort. If having an extra cheerleader there with you helps your personality shine, I'm all for it! (I'll be hyping you up to, no worries) Just make sure this person is someone supportive who you'd love to share this experience with.
I can include up to three family members/friends in a handful of photos with you. If you'd like to have a larger group or share your session with another graduate, please let me know and we can get you a custom rate!
Your photos will be delivered to you in an online gallery two weeks from your session date.
"Honestly, I cannot say enough good things. Andrea was fun and professional. She made the shoot so fun and comfortable that it felt like two friends hanging out. I did a mini shoot and she managed to get so many great shots in so many backgrounds and a ton of variety! You will not regret your experience or your pictures if you shoot with her."

"Andrea was such a blast to work with. She recently took my graduation photos and they came out gorgeous. She was responsive at all hours and so kind, made me feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera. I couldn’t be more happy with my experience and would recommend her to anybody in need of photography services."
— Hina, 2022 Graduate
"Working with Andrea for my college graduation photos was an awesome experience + the final product was absolutely fantastic. I still use her photos on my professional platforms to this day; she does a wonderful job of capturing people's emotions and making them shine in the process. Andrea is both very flexible and SUPER fun to work with, and the incredible work she puts out is the icing on the cake!"
