THE                 SENIOR EXPERIENCE

This is the place to be for Raleigh Senior Portraits

"Welcome to the ultimate Raleigh senior portrait experience in the Raleigh, NC area!

 

At Jenn McKinney Photography, I believe in making every moment unforgettable, starting with getting to know my seniors personally to create a tailored, one-of-a-kind session just for them. With a location gallery boasting over 30 stunning spots, I guarantee to find the perfect backdrop to showcase their unique style and personality.

 

But that's just the beginning. Step into my downtown Raleigh studio for a VIP treatment like no other. My talented hair and makeup artists will work their magic while I steam their outfits, ensuring every detail is picture-perfect. And what's a photoshoot without some fun? I've got a snack and beverage session set up, where we'll jam to their favorite tunes as they get pampered.

 

Once they're camera-ready, it's time to hit the streets! Whether it's the bustling energy of Fayetteville Street or the cool vibes of my historic studio, every location is a canvas waiting to capture their essence. And after a day of feeling like royalty, I'll make sure they end on a high note with heading back to Downtown Raleigh for at a fabulous dinner.

 

But the excitement doesn't end there. Expect sneak peeks of their session on social media, building anticipation for the big reveal. About a week later, they'll return to the studio for an unforgettable reveal session, complete with a gag reel filled with laughter and memories.

 

With my guidance, they'll select the perfect portraits and heirloom collections to cherish for a lifetime. And in just a few weeks, their treasured keepsakes will be ready to showcase. Plus, with digitals included in every portrait collection, they'll have memories to share for years to come.

 

Celebrating Senior Year is HUGE.  These high school seniors deserve to me pampered, and I strive to make it more than just an hour of feeling special.  I want them to feel welcome and pampered from the very beginning at our first zoom call, receiving a special welcome packet in the mail, all the prep and planning their perfect session, getting pampered in the studio before their session, having a ton of laughs during their session all the way to their amazing reveal session where there will be yet again another gift (Yes I like spoiling my seniors just a little LOL) until the final day where I deliver their GORGEOUS PORTRAIT COLLECTION.  But they aren't done with me after that - I keep in touch with my seniors and cheer them on from afar as they embark on their college journey.    

 

At Jenn McKinney Photography, it's more than just photography – it's a journey of self-discovery and confidence-building. I love spoiling my teens and seeing their confidence soar with each click of the camera.

PROCESS AFTER BOOKING YOUR SENIOR PORTRAITS

I WANT TO KNOW YOU!

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION?


After you book your session, I will send you my Client Closet and Location Gallery.  This is just the start of dreaming up your perfect session.

We will have a fun laid back FaceTime call to discuss what you would like.  There are so many options, so me getting to know you will help me plan the perfect session for you.

You will receive a Welcome packet in the mail with a special gift for your senior.  I like to send a custom gift that would be special to them :)

I will be in contact with you all the way up to your session day.  In my opinion when we have your session planned it allows for enjoyment and not stress!

I make my sessions personal, I encourage my seniors to text me outfit options as they are picking out their outfits for their session.  I find the more I communicate directly with the seniors before their session they are more comfortable because they already know me on a personal level and they know they can joke around with me.

It is so funny, I feel like my senior sessions are the loudest at any location we go to.  We are laughing and 
cutting up and having the best time and I look around at the other senior sessions around me and they are stiff.  I am very guilty of asking my seniors to do silly things to get expressions out of them - plus I have to have images for the gag reel LOL 

We are here to have fun, as long as we are not in a library there is no need for my senior sessions to be quiet.  
 

She has truly developed a relationship with my daughter and brought out such confidence in her!

Jenn has not only captured family photos for us, but also is winding out the year of photographing my high school senior. It has been a pleasure working with Jenn over the past year! She has truly developed a relationship with my daughter and brought out such confidence in her! I am grateful for all the amazing photos, but more so for the friendship! Thanks, Jenn!

Jenn doesn’t just take photos she captures memories and my daughter’s personality in a way that I will treasure forever.

My daughter has had five sessions with Jenn and everyone of them has been fun and collaborative. Jenn is warm and welcoming so you feel comfortable right away which allows for your personality to really shine through. I love that her photographs are unique to the person, without cookie cutter poses that feel unnatural or staged. The only downfall I can think of is that all of the pictures are frame worthy and it is incredibly hard to choose. Jenn doesn’t just take photos she captures memories and my daughter’s personality in a way that I will treasure forever.

YOU WON'T KNOW HOW VALUABLE A PHOTOGRAPH IS UNTIL YOUR CHILD
HAS SPREAD THEIR WINGS

Raleigh-Senior-Photographer-Rooftop-Alan.jpg

We've raised our kids to be resilient and independent. We knew this day would come, them leaving for college or starting a new chapter. It's the truth. But even though we're proud, the reality stings a bit - the nest will be a little emptier.

At your reveal session you will be able to choose your favorite NC senior portraits.  I want you to have access to more than just the digitals to post on social media.  I want you to have something tangible after your session.  Something to hang on your wall, put on your coffee table or bookshelf.  I want you to be able to look at your child daily even after they have left the nest.  It is important that you choose the portrait collection that works best for your family.  Everything is printed from a high quality print lab creating timeless memories for you family and to be passed on to the next generation.
