Soooo Excited!

I was excited about my session, but also nervous about picking out clothes and making sure everything went well, but Andrea helped with location ideas and overall details to make everything go smoothly.  Andrea made me feel very comfortable so I had fun. I felt like a model!  I definitely became more and more comfortable and confident at my session.  My favorite part was being silly in some of the pictures and trying on my serious face. My Mom loved how Andrea brought out my smile and was so easy to work with.

Fabulous! Fun! Entertaining!

Andrea goes above & beyond to capture unbelieveable photographs! She does this by getting to know the people (and families) she's photographing. We love Andrea, she is caring, compassionate, and has a wonderful personality that can't help but make people smile/laugh. We like the crazy places she took us to, and the angles/poses from which she took the pictures. At the time I said or thought, "Really?" Yet those are some of my favorites and the pictures hanging on my wall that I look at daily. She is so creative!

My Jaw Dropped!

I have been looking forward to taking my senior pictures for as long as I can remember.  In planning the session, Andrea was there whenever I had questions and answered every single one. My photo session was relaxed, with no pressure to do poses that I didn't feel comfortable with or ackward. The experience made me feel beautiful in my own skin, I felt like I was born to be who I was in front of that beautiful camera. When I saw my preview pictures, my jaw dropped! Nobody had ever captured me in the way Andrea had. My photos turned out fantastic and I couldn't be happier.

Creating an Epically Fun Senior Experience!

Senior pictures are more than a snapshot or one posed image. High school senior portraits are an experience. It's the final piece of your high school story. The last four years seemed to last forever, but they're a short stop in so many chapters + a milestone that begs to be captured, for girls AND guys!

Andrea, and Shining Moments Photography,  wants to be your senior photographer and capture this last high school piece for your memory books. We have FUN making you look FABULOUS!

If you're curious where to start, request our Senior Welcome Guide which outlines every piece of how we help you sparkle. After you click the "BOOK NOW" button below, choose a Senior Collection + reserve your date, we start the fun + create your personal experience by reading the Senior Questionnaire you fill out.  Andrea gets an idea for your style, what you love, and a little bit of who you are and a few quirky things inbetween.

Most SMP senior sessions take place from April through November.  Your senior pictures are usually outdoors, in beautiful natural light near sunset whenever possible.  There are perfect backdrops from Sycamore and Dekalb to Geneva and St Charles, Illinois. However, when our Northern Illinois weather sets in we can move indoors.
