Welcome to A Thousand Words Photography


It's the time in your life where you choose who you want to be and where you want to go. You have been given your foundation, and now it's time to try out those wings! Your whole life is ahead of you, and you now have the tools to be everything you want to be.

Senior photos are a beautiful thing - they are a culmination of the person you have been (your interests, hobbies, and activities) and a reflection of the person you are going to be. As your Senior Photographer,  it is my privilege to capture the TRUE YOU in a fun, candid, and relaxed environment.

Tips of the Trade


Be yourself

Take along some of the things that make you who you are. Whether you play sports, play an instrument, or just like to hang out with friends, I want to capture you completely in your element!

Be relaxed, and be you-that's what your senior photos are all about. YOU!


Be Unique

You are a unique and beautiful person unlike anyone else, so why should your photos be like anyone else's? I want to make your photos fun and unique to who you are as an individual, and unlike anyone else's! It's my goal to create a relaxed environment, so you don't feel like you're "taking senior pictures"- you are just being who you are, doing what you love-and I'm here to help you express that!


Go out on top!

You have worked so hard for the past 3 years to get to this point, and it is your time to make your statement! Let's celebrate your accomplishments and show the world that you are unstoppable!

What can you expect?

It's all about you!


They say that a person's eyes are a reflection of their soul. The key to great senior photos is in the eyes. It is my entire objective to make your senior session completely about you - what are your interests? What is your next step in life? 



Let's break through the traditional, and lets go for the revolutionary. I want to artistically portray who you are in a fun, exciting, way unlike anyone else.   



Not only are we breaking down the doors to new areas, we are also capturing who you are in a simple, yet elegant fashion. From the most timeless, traditional photos, to the fun and creative, I've got it all!

Frequently Asked Quesitons

What qualifies as a location?

I try to find one "location" that has a couple different backdrops/areas to it, or somewhere else within walking distance, so we can get a few different "looks" in one area. Just contact me and we'll talk it over! I'll find the perfect spots for your package, your outfits, and your style!

How long should I expect my session to last?

My sessions are not necessarily on a time limit - I want you to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible! As a general rule, I like to do a session as close to sunset as possible (as this is the time when the lighting is the best!). Although there are no specific time limits to my packages, larger packages will be allotted more time to account for more outfits and locations!

What props should I bring?

All your extracurricular activities and hobbies are great things to showcase in your senior photos! Sports, dance, band, or other hobbies are all great ideas!

Think OUTSIDE the box! Do you love to read? Is your passion taking care of children? Do you spend your extra time polishing your rims? Do you enjoy hunting, fishing, or being outdoors? Tell me about everything you love, and I will find a fun and unique way to convey who you are!

Am I able to make substitutions to the listed packages?

Of course! I am more than willing to tweak my packages in order to greater meet your needs! Simply send me a message or give me a call, and we can go over exactly what you had in mind, and create a package JUST FOR YOU!

What do I need to do before the session to prepare?

Each session includes a pre-consultation, where we talk over your interests, unique ideas, and I get to know YOU as a person! 

I will go over all your outfits with you, and discuss all the locations we will go to. I'll find the perfect combination of locations to match your style, props, and outfits! 

What do I wear?

Anything that portrays who you are as a remarkable individual or you feel the most comfortable wearing! I love layers and solid colors in photos!

Some things to avoid would be bright neon colors, busy patterns, or small stripes!

At our pre-consulation, feel free to bring along your outfit ideas! I'd love to help bring out your personal style in your senior photos!
