The senior & graduate Experience

Whether you prefer the natural beauty of the outdoors, the endless possibilities of a studio setting, or my most popular session - combination of both, I offer a range of options to make your senior portraits truly one-of-a-kind. 

We can showcase your interests and passions by choosing relevant outdoor locations, or in studio with themed backdrops and even using the latest green screen technology to create amazing composites.

My goal is to create a relaxed and enjoyable environment that allows your true personality to shine through. With my years of experience and eye for detail, I will work tirelessly to capture the essence of who you are and create timeless images that you’ll treasure for years to come.

Let's capture your unique
personality & style

The first step is easy - just say hello! You've looked through my portfolio and feel like we're a good fit. Reach out and tell me a little more about yourself and what you're looking for in your senior session. This is the perfect time to ask any questions about your session.

1. Say Hello

2. book your session

I've answered all your questions and it's time to make it official! Once you've decided on an outdoor or studio session, or my most popular option which is a combination of both, and we've agreed to your session date and time, you'll receive an email with your contract and a short questionnaire. Once you sign your contract and pay your retainer, your session goes on my calendar and your date is reserved. The balance of your session will be due on your session date. 

3. ask me Anything

It's time for your consultation. No need to try to fit me into your busy schedule, we can finish your consultation with just a few emails. Your questionnaire will be our starting point in designing your session. We’ll discuss the locations or backdrops that would best suit your personal style and the look you want to achieve. We can discuss wardrobe and styling choices. We’ll also talk about any specific props or accessories that you would like to use. This is a great opportunity to express your creative ideas and collaborate with me to bring your vision to life. Some people love planning their session, and some just want to leave it to me. Whatever your preference, you can be involved as little or as much as you want!  By taking the time to discuss all of these important details in advance, we can ensure that your senior portrait session is tailored to your preferences and expectations, resulting in stunning and personalized images that you will cherish for years to come.

4. your session!

Your session day is here! The most important thing is to relax and have fun! We'll either meet at your location or my studio. In studio, all your selected backdrops will be up and ready. Bring any wardrobe you'll need for changes. I'll guide you through easy, comfortable poses and make sure we get your dream images. 

5. your photographs

Approximately three weeks after your session, you'll receive an email letting you know your images are ready. Exciting! You'll be able to view and download your images from your own private online gallery. Feel free to share your gallery with family and friends near or far. You'll also be able to add any wall art or prints at this time. Your walls are your canvas, and you can turn your images into beautiful works of art that you will treasure for years to come. I'm happy to help. Let's work together to create stunning artwork for your walls!

Melissa did an outstanding job on our senior portraits! Very thorough, did both outside and in-studio shots, and took time to really capture personality...and understand what style we were looking for. Very skilled photographer, too, setting up shots and ensuring lighting was ideal. Highly recommend! The photos turned out amazing and we love them! -Sharon M.

I highly recommend Melissa Byrne as your photographer!! Melissa has an amazing eye for her photographic subjects. She did a shoot for my granddaughter’s graduation pictures and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Melissa took the time prior to our scheduled day of photos to scout out a few areas for the best background shots, as we wanted outdoor scenes. She was amazing, so patient and directed poses and stances that turned out fabulous! Melissa is a pro!!! She is our go to for any future needs! -Sheryl D.

THANK YOU THANK YOU Melissa! You were absolutely wonderful to work with for our daughter's scholarship video and senior photos! You had an almost mystical ability to capture her inner beauty and reflect her personality while creating such stunning images! You were so incredible to work with, you made it look easy but put in many hours of work to get those perfect shots. We appreciate you and your gift of photography and look forward to working with you again next year when our younger daughter graduates...she has already asked for you!!!  -Dian T.

Melissa is amazing, high quality professional photography with an artistic flair. She is head and shoulders above the rest!
