Forget the boring, blue background at school. You're cooler and more interesting than that. I'm on a mission to give you the most expressive, amazing photos that you'll treasure forever.  I love thrilling bold, passionate seniors (and that's YOU by the way) with empowering photos - photos that make your friends say "woah."

From consultation and planning to shoot day to reveal day, I do things a little bit differently...The process is about you!

Extra Info...

When Should I Book My Senior Portraits?
Ideally, as soon as possible! The fastest times to fill up are fall and spring weekends - specifically November and April. Those are usually filled by August and February, respectively. Weekday sessions can usually be scheduled within 2 weeks. Winter is a great time to try senior portraits!

Where Do You Shoot?
Wherever fits your vision, honestly! We go over your inspiration and ideas during the consultation and customize locations to your wants and needs. Some of my favorite locations for senior portraits are downtown Raleigh, some of Wake Forest's parks, and at the American Tobacco campus. I love modern senior portraits. I also have two studios - one in downtown Raleigh and one in Wake Forest! Both are great for boho chic senior portraits.

What's Included in JR Photography Senior Portraits?
A customized consultation, and the session itself are all included in the retainers listed above. You'll get to pick out your favorite images and make decisions on digital files, prints, and albums at the ordering appointment - which we'll schedule on your shoot day. Usually it's about 2 weeks after the shoot!

How Long Does It Take To Get My Senior Portraits After the Session?
Usually, I allow 2 weeks for editing your images. After your ordering appointment, you'll receive digital files immediately. Prints usually take 5-10 days to arrive; albums take 4-5 weeks.

Where Is Your Studio?
JR Photography's primary location is in Downtown Raleigh, NC! The OG JR Photography is in Downtown Wake Forest. Both locations are open. We don't have to meet at or use the studio at all, in fact. I travel all over North Carolina for senior sessions.

Do you have any examples?
Yes. Check out some recent examples below.
