The Consult:

When you fill out the form below to get more session info, we'll schedule a time for you to come out to the NVP Studio in Union Bridge to fill you in on the senior experience. We'll go over the complete session process from start to finish, talk about session and product pricing, and plan your unique shoot. You'll be able to tell me about anything on your wish list for your session, specific locations you'd like, and even get guidance on choosing the best outfits for your session. We'll finish by officially booking your session if you so choose, and you'll get to leave with a copy of our Senior Magazine, which is the ultimate guide to your senior portrait experience and exclusive to NVP senior clients.

The Session:

On the day of your session, we'll meet on location during the prettiest time of day, either sunrise or sunset. I'll have spent weeks searching for perfect locations based on your wish list, so your session will be tailored to your personal preferences and your images will be stunning. We'll spend the evening chasing the light through different spots and capturing gorgeous, authentic images that represent who you are in this season of life. I'll be with you every step of the way directing you, and by the end I promise you'll be having a blast and feeling like a real model, even if you were nervous about being in front of the camera.

The Order:

This is the day you'll get to see all your gorgeous images for the first time and decide which photos to display and keep. We'll get together in the NVP studio again so you and your family can gather around and choose your favorites. With professional purchasing guidance, the unique NVP process makes it easier than ever to decide on which images to show off and how to do it. From gorgeous yearbook-sized albums to modern canvases and framed wall art, you'll get to choose from stunning products you can't get anywhere else to keep and display your images for the generations to come.

When should you schedule your consult to book your senior session?

Because of the extremely limited number of seniors we are able to take on each year, and the high number of inquiries we get, NVP senior spots book up much earlier than other photographers. Most seniors do their sessions during the summer before their senior year and the fall of their senior year, so in order to book a senior spot, you should schedule your consult for January-May during Junior year. We recommend scheduling your consult as early as possible during that time frame if you are interested in a senior session with NVP, because our senior spots book up earlier and earlier each year. Clients who wait until late spring or early summer to get in touch might not be able to book a senior spot depending on our availability. We recommend signing up for the VIP List below in order to be notified when booking opens for next year’s sessions in order to schedule your consult as soon as possible.

The sitting fee for the NVP senior portrait experience is $325. Total investment is customizable to your family's needs, and is discussed at the consult.

All senior session spots for the year are booked! If you are class of 2019 or 2020, we recommend signing up for the VIP List. Senior session spots are extremely limited each year and book up months in advance. VIP List members will have first access to session spots next year when booking opens in January.

For college seniors, your session process is a little different, so please inquire through the form on the contact page for specific info.

Love from past seniors:


Anna T.

"Overall, I am so happy I chose Naturally Vivid Photography for my senior portraits. The consult was very helpful in deciding exactly what I want and was set up very professionally, which left a good impression on me. I was beyond happy with my location - it was exactly what I pictured in my head. Becca did an amazing job choosing the perfect the location based off of what I told her, and the photo shoot was so much fun! I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all, and the pictures turned out to be fantastic. I had such a hard time deciding which ones were my favorites! I would definitely recommend choosing Naturally Vivid Photography for future seniors."


Brooke W.

"I loved working with Becca! When I received pictures for my location, I fell in love immediately. I felt like she really understood what I wanted for my pictures and cared about me as a client. She was super friendly and easy to work with, considering I had no idea on how to model. She was also really encouraging throughout the session. When I finally got my images, I was so happy, because I would have never thought I would like so many of them. It was definitely hard narrowing it down. Overall I had a great experience and would recommend her to anyone who is interested in getting senior pictures."


Michaela O.

"My experience with Naturally Vivid Photography was incredible! The locations were beautiful and the pictures were gorgeous. I never pictured my senior portraits to be so unique and personalized. She created amazing pictures that really express who I am and what I love. Thank you times a million!"


Anna R.

"My experience with Naturally Vivid was so much fun! Becca does a great job of listening to your ideas and adding in her ideas to make the best senior session possible. All of the images she took were so great! I would highly reccommend Naturally Vivid for any senior session!"


Melissa B.

"The experience I had with Becca was beyond amazing! She did a great job finding a beautiful location and creating just as beautiful images! The session was lots of fun and Becca made me feel very comfortable the entire time by helping with poses and choosing an outfit beforehand. The overall experience and products were both incredible!"
