It's your turn!


Now is the perfect time to capture you during this special time of your life. This is your last year of high school and that is a reason to celebrate!!  

A Senior Portrait Experience with
Mary Barnett Photography is all about YOU!

We will work together to create a custom senior portrait experience that truly represents you, your style, your personality and your story. I promise to make you feel comfortable in front of my camera and capture the real YOU!

I will help you throughout the entire process so you feel comfortable and love your photos. We start by meeting and planning to make sure your session is YOU! We make sure your session is custom by helping you pick out the right clothing to showcase your style and getting to know you so I can tell your unique story through the images I capture during your senior portrait session.

Book your session

Step 1:

The Process

When you fill out the contact form you will receive all you need to book your session! You'll get to see all available dates and choose one that works best for you. If you don't see a date that works let me know and I can do my best to accommodate your calendar.

Your consultation

Step 2:

After you book your session you will also schedule an in person or phone consult to discuss your goals for the session. We discuss clothing, location, your style, etc. to make the session uniquely YOU! You'll know exactly how to prepare for your big day!

Step 3:

We put our plan into action! Sessions are fun, relaxed and I guide you every step of the way. Get ready to have some fun and get LOTS of variety in posing and backgrounds! Sessions typically last 2-3 hours.  Professional hair and makeup is available to you prior to your session!

The big reveal

Step 4:

You'll come back to the studio for a custom in-person ordering session. (Don't worry, there are tissues for mom ...) We will review your amazing session images together and you will make your final product selections. I help you choose the best images for the products you want and then get busy creating your custom products and prints!

Frequently Asked Questions

Senior sessions are available year-round and there is no "right" or "wrong" time to do yours. If you know you want to book, don't wait! Once my calendar is full I create a waiting list if more dates open up. Some seniors book at the end of junior year to secure a spot.

When should I book my session?

Don't worry! I am here to help! Every client has a pre-session consultation and I give you a What to Wear guide and am always here to help guide you! Most seniors wear 3 outfits for their sessions.

What do I need to wear?

I will watch the weather leading up to the day of your session, keep in contact with you and make the best decision for your shoot prior to you starting to get ready. We may need to reschedule but we will definitely get your shoot done!

What happens if it rains?

I schedule most shoots on weekday mornings. If you're thinking "but that's during my school day?!" most seniors schedule around the classes/sports events they really shouldn't miss and make a day of it! Some weekend/evening dates are available too!

When do you schedule?

Like urban settings? Nature? Rustic? No problem! All clients have a pre-session consultation to be sure I know exactly what you're looking for. We use locations to reflect your style and unique personality! If you have a special request or access to a private location you want to use just let me know!

What locations do you offer?

You will be able to choose from prints, gallery wraps, image boxes, story boards, albums, digital files and more! Custom grad announcements, thank you notes, grad party invitations, and other press products are also available!

What products do you offer?

All clients have the option of having hair and makeup done prior to their session at the studio for an additional fee. My stylist is amazing and listens to your style requests and makes you look the absolute best version of yourself! Most clients opt for this but it is not required.
