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.

Book your session

Step 1 :

The Process

Once you choose which session type you'd like, simply 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.

It's time to prepare!

Step 2:

After you book your session you will receive a welcome packet full of everything you need to prepare for your session.  It includes a "what to wear" guide and tons of tips on how to prepare for your big day!  You will fill out a form to help me get an idea of your style and how I can make your session reflect your unique personality.   

Before your session date we will have a phone consult and plan location, finalize wardrobe and discuss any special requests you might have.

Photoshoot 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! I recommend bringing mom or a friend to help you and make it even more fun!

The big reveal

Step 4:

Depending on your session choice, 12-14 days following your session you will either come to the studio for a premier image reveal or you will view and select your images from a private online gallery.

Additional digitals, prints, wall portraits, albums, grad announcements, and more are available with your images.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fall and Spring are the most popular times for sessions but sessions can be scheduled any time during the year.  Sessions book out as far as 6 months in advance and a waiting list is started once all spots are filled.

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.  Your session choice determines how many outfits you wear and you'll have lots of ideas and suggestions!

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?

The vast majority of sessions are scheduled for weekday mornings. If during the school year, seniors schedule their session day around academic responsibility. Some school holidays 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 girls' sessions include hair/makeup prior to the session with the option of having on-site stylist to accompany us on the shoot.  This allows for any touchups or hair style changes.  My stylist is amazing and listens to your style requests and makes you look the absolute best version of yourself!
