No parent ever said "I wish I hadn't taken these amazing photos of my kid"

I believe that your senior year is not only special – it’s monumental. And it’s gonna be gone in the blink of an eye. All the football games, the practices, the coaches and teachers you hate (and love), the nights at In N Out with friends – will be over really soon.  How do you want to remember this time?

As a high school senior photographer, my goal is to create a meaningful, fun & memorable experience for your senior portraits.  We work together to make sure your session is unique - just like you.


time is a thief

“The personal touch is evident & Renee let my daughter guide the entire senior photo shoot! We truly have loved each and every experience with Renee -

her work is on another level!”

- Diane McGrory


“Renee connects with teens effortlessly

She has a great ability to bring out their personality and make them feel comfortable. She doesn't treat it as a job going through the motions, she makes the senior photosession an EXPERIENCE.

— Rebecca Dunsworth, Kylie's Mom

“Renee was able to photograph Grace in a way that honored her natural beauty”

and in a way that made her feel comfortable. It was Grace's shoot, not Renee's, and that meant Grace was never asked to wear something she didn't like or pose in a way she wasn't comfortable. If you are looking for a unique senior experience, I promise you won't regret shooting with Renee. 

— Amanda Howell, Grace's Mom 

“Renee is an awesome photographer!! She takes incredible photos and she knows how to make you look your best!!.”

She makes sure that the photo shoot is all about you and your ideas are included so the outcome of the photos taken are all unique to you! 

— Katarina Weary, Senior 2021

“Renee builds a relationship with you, she makes your experience everything you want it to be and more..

- Katie Ironfield

shooting with her is like no other.”

"We have shot with Renee since the kids were little and now enjoy epic senior pictures and the most beautiful prom pictures I have ever seen. Always on time and willing to work with you, Renee only works with the best people, including make-up artist Jami Cox. Thank you Renee, we look forward to many more years."

- Terri Johnson

your senior photos are about YOU

I'll never tell you want you have to wear or where we have to shoot - I'll help guide you, yes but this experience is all about you and what you want it to be 

As your senior photographer, my job is to help you feel like you on your best day and to have the time of your life!

what you get:

About two weeks after your senior portrait session, we will meet at my studio to go over all the beautiful images we created together. That's when you get to choose which images you would like to print and archive; albums are the BEST and most popular way of doing just that - I have tons of samples to show you!

You have a lot of choices now for senior photos in Santa Clarita and the Los Angeles area. That wasn't the case when I started my senior photography business back in 2007 ... nobody even offered senior portraits the way I wanted to offer them - including an entire experience with hair and makeup on location.

I've had the pleasure of working with hundreds of seniors and their families over the last 16 years and I'm so very grateful for every opportunity - for every return client who comes back to me over and over. But I am going to be 100% honest with you ... I am not the cheapest photographer. What I do is typically far more than most photographers. I want my teen clients to walk a little taller and feel more confident than they did before they shot with me.  What I do takes a lot of time, expertise and talent ... so working with me is an investment, but it's FUN!
