Hope everyone’s summer is off to a great start. And hopefully it starts to get hot out soon. I just wanted to remind all the 2010 Seniors, that while your having so much fun this summer don’t forget to schedule your senior portrait session. Senior year is going to come up fast, and you don’t want to be the only one without your senior portraits done yet.

Visit our senior web site for all the senior portrait session information you’ll need. Then just give us a ring and schedule a consultation with Laura, and then set up the date and time of your senior session. Each of the sessions here at Images by Laura are unique to each individual, so you’ll never see the same pose and background twice among classmates. Hope to see you soon.

Senior Portrait Packages

We offer Senior Portrait Order Packages. The great thing about packages is that you don’t have to choose only one pose, you can include many of your poses into a package. Because, your parents may like some poses and you might like other ones. But thats fine, you can include all the poses you both like into the portrait package of your choice.
