Nervous? Here’s how to prepare for your senior photos

Maybe you’ve been thinking about senior photos, but aren’t sure what to expect. What do you wear? How do you pose? What if you hate your images? Whether this is your first or two-hundredth photoshoot, I want you to feel completely at ease. Here’s what you can expect from your fun and phenomenal senior session:

Step 1: Reach Out to Caili

All you need to do is fill out the form here & I’ll be in touch with you within 24 hours with all the details. It’s actually that easy.

Step 2: Caili will get to know you & share her senior resources

I like talking on the phone because it’s the easiest way to learn who you are, what you’re looking for, and answer all your questions. It’s important to me that we’re a good fit 🙂 I’ll also share what a session with me looks like & if it all sounds good to you, we’ll make this official! I’ll email you & your parent(s) plenty of resources to help you prepare including:

  1. The Senior Session Style Guide (you can download this on my senior info page)
  2. List of Gorgeous Utah Locations
  3. 19 Poses Every Girl Should Do During Senior Photos

Step 3: We Shoot

Your session really should just feel like hanging out with an old friend. I promise to make you feel comfortable and help you look good in front of the camera. I will guide you the entire time – no modeling experience required! I’ll tell you where to look, where to put your hands, how to sit without flashing the camera, and how to position yourself for flattering full body shots. My seniors don’t need to know what to do at all & can just enjoy themselves.

We can do up to two different outfits and two different locations. And you’re welcome (encouraged even) to shoot with friends, too! If you share your session with friends, we’ll take plenty of individual and group photos.


“Caili is a genuinely kind, funny, and simply amazing person, not to mention an incredible photographer! Before taking pictures with Caili, I had never had fun taking pictures, but that definitely changed. Our shoot was a truly enjoyable experience; it was filled with laughter and real smiles. I never felt awkward, and Caili was great at giving me different poses to try. I also loved that Caili let us choose every aspect of our shoot yet also gave us tips about things like what time we should shoot, where we should shoot, and what we should wear. Now that our pictures have come back, I could not be happier.”

Step 4: The result

Finally, two weeks after your shoot you’ll come back in for an ordering appointment. You’ll get to choose your favorite images to be fully edited & printed in beautiful heirlooms. I’ll show sample albums, wall art, and smaller prints & you can choose the best way to show off your gorgeous face in your gorgeous photos.

Final Note…

Throughout this process, it’s my job to make sure you have fun & feel great about your photoshoot. And I’m here for you along the way. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out here or directly at
