Senior Photos

It's more than just great pictures.

Have fun celebrating the last months of high school with a photography session filled with music and fun… and walk away with prints to last a lifetime.

You will enjoy a one-of-a-kind senior picture experience that is laid back and fun where you'll find your confidence grow with each click of the button. We'll crank your favorite tunes, roam around finding dreamy light and the right backgrounds to coordinate with your outfits, and showcase your individual style.

I love to empower those in front of my camera to feel beautiful, handsome, and worthy… perfect just as you are!   


There is no greater compliment than the reaction of a teen when I show them the back of my camera . They look at the picture of themselves with tears in their eyes or amazement in their voice with a huge smile on their face saying...


“I can’t believe that’s me! Wow!”

More than just great photos.


Your Meaningful Location.

We will work together to choose a location that fits your style and works well with the outfits you choose. 

Local Gems

Do you love nature?  Would you prefer a downtown vibe?  Are graffiti and smoke bombs more your jam?  Want to go to your grandparents farm and get pics during harvest?

Have Camera, Will Travel

Whether it’s traveling to the Windy City for a ‘real’ city feel or heading to the beach in Cabo, we can make it happen. In addition to photographing all throughout the state of Illinois, I’ve traveled to Colorado, New York, North Carolina, and Mexico to photograph clients. Dreaming of a different destination?   Let’s chat and customize a destination photography trip for you!


Let's Prep. 

Don’t worry about a thing - in the weeks leading up to your photo session, we will be in regular communication.  A questionnaire gives you an opportunity to tell us more about you as well as any ideas you have for your session.  You will receive guides with suggestions on what to wear, best colors to choose based on skin color, and other tips for how to make it the best session ever.  If doing your own hair and make-up is not your thing, complimentary hair and make-up is included in the senior session fee.  Three cheers for pampering and an extra boost of confidence!


Get Ready to Smile.

Leave the stress at home… we got you!  We will capture the true essence of your personality in a fun way so any photo anxiety you might have had will quickly dissipate.  You will be guided through poses and movement with your favorite tunes bumping to make the experience even sweeter.  


Later when you look at your custom designed album, you’re going to feel beautiful while remembering the fun process and how comfortable you felt creating the timeless gorgeous images...images that will be cherished for generations.


Last But Not Least...

Let's not leave you hanging! Have you ever tried to evenly space and properly level a collage of art on your wall?  Not so fun.  Well, have no fear... Sweet Lemonade is here.  We are saving you the frustration (and choice words that typically go with a tedious and frustrating process) by hanging your photos for you!  This is a complimentary service offered to anyone who would prefer to leave the installation of heirloom portraits to the professionals. 

Seriously! Graduating high school is one of the most memorable moments you will ever experience in your life. Lets capture this incredible moment that will last a lifetime. And most importantly, let's have some fun doing it!

Kind Words

I loved that I invested in the best around my area for my daughter's senior pictures.  Heather has a great talent for capturing the special moments in life and has an artist's eye that picks up on the perfect background, lighting, poses and smiles!  She is the epitome of professionalism and makes the whole experience a memory one treasures!  Deciding on Sweet Lemonade Photography will be the best decision one could make to capture any of life's milestones.

Exclusive styled shoots.

Does adding multiple mini-sessions throughout their high school career and first dibs on destination sessions sound like a blast?  Then you’re gonna want to get in touch with me and ask about the amazing VIP experience! There is only a limited number of openings each year to be a VIP so contact me today if you want a chance to participate.  


No one has ever regretted having professional photos taken.  Plenty have regretted not scheduling a session.


Live without regrets.
