Senior Portraits by Summit Side Photo & Video

Professional senior portraits are a must for upcoming graduates! They have worked hard to achieve a lot over their 12 years in school, and deserve recognition for their efforts. Senior portraits are a great opportunity to capture these amazing young adults while their skills, personality and characters are evolving. High quality photos with proper lighting will create timeless images the whole family can enjoy for generations to come.

We love to shoot outdoor portraits in beautiful locations, using off camera lighting to illuminate the subjects. With seniors, we work with them create the type of images they are looking for, whether it’s on a field, a beach, mountainside or a downtown location.  We allow our senior clients to dress in multiple outfits, and always go for a variety of shots.  If they want to incorporate their favorite hobby or recreation into the photos, even better! Whether it’s sports, music, drama, bikes, boards or horses, we love to let their passions shine through.

Senior portrait sessions start at $350 for a 1-1.5 hour shoot in the Truckee and Reno - Tahoe area.  This includes the high-resolution keeper images on a flash drive, a $50 credit towards prints/products, an online viewing gallery and/or image presentation meeting.  At the presentation, we will guide you toward your ideal products (prints, canvases, albums, etc) and help you place your order.  Additionally, we can offer images to the school for the yearbook for no additional charge. 

*We are willing to travel to shoot senior portraits.  A travel fee may apply if we cannot schedule the session during a time when we will already be in your area.

*Not all schools accept images from professional photographers not associated with the school.  We can check with your school prior to the shoot to see what they accept.

We’re looking forward to connecting with you!
