I am passionate about helping others

and become the go-to senior photographer in their area!

can still remember the days of dreaming of a business where I was able to specialize in the genre I loved, seniors.  I saw other photographers in my area photographing weddings and babies and families but I didn't see anyone photographing seniors.  I knew there had to be a market in my area for this genre and I was determined to find it.  I wanted to give people something better than the traditional yearbook photo.  I spent tons of hours searching for information online to help me create a senior portrait business.  I remember trying to learn and figure things out on my own through lots of trial and error.  And I remember wondering if I would get any senior clients.  But deep down I knew I could do it and that I was going to make this dream happen.

In the last 8 years, I have been through many ups and downs in my business.  There have been times when I have doubted myself, wondering if I was a good enough photographer, and thinking how in the world am I going to make this work.  Trust me, wherever you are in your business, I have been there.  I believe in you and I am cheering you on!

Through lots of hard work, hustle, trial and error and learning, I have been able to build a business that is THE GO-TO senior photography business in my area and create a market for seniors where there wasn't one when I first started.  And I have created Seniorologie to be a resource for all the things I have learned along the way in order to help you avoid the mistakes I made, cut through the years of trial and error and create a business that is successful.

With a passion for helping others and a heart for education, I want to provide you with honest, practical information, tools and resources that you need to create a profitable senior photography business.  I truly want to see you succeed so let's get started with some free resources below!

Conference 12

Conference Twelve is an in-person, three-day conference specifically for senior photographers who want to learn and grow their senior photography business as well as find a family of support and friendship.

This 3-Day Conference has 12 speakers teaching different topics that are important for the senior photographer to run a successful business.  The conference is limited to 50 attendees to give everyone a chance to get one-on-one time with speakers as well as be able to connect with other attendees without feeling overwhelmed.  

The conference kicks off with a fun welcome party to meet the speakers as well as the other attendees.  Mornings are spent learning in a classroom style environment while afternoons are spent participating in styled photo shoots lead by speakers to give all attendees hands-on experience as well as beautiful images for their portfolios.  Topics covered include editing, posing, client workflow and communications, marketing, senior model teams, branding, blogging, lighting and more.

In addition to the classroom time and photo shoot time, attendees are given some downtime to allow for casual conversations and bonding with speakers and other attendees.  Lunch is provided daily as well as amazing swag donated by our sponsors.

The learning continues in the Conference Twelve private Facebook community long after the in-person event is over.
