Michael Mowbray, M. Photog, Cr.

I love senior portraits. Seniors are a joy to be around; they're funny, crazy, diverse, confident, shy -- sometimes all in the same session! 

One of the aspects I like most about working with seniors is the creative freedom I am afforded. Seniors often want something different. Something trendy or fashionable.  I live for that. Give me a chance to create your senior portraits. Don't trust an amateur for something this important.  Trust a real pro and you will be rewarded with incredible portraits and an awesome experience.

One of the big advantages I have is that I actually have a fully-functioning full-time studio. Outdoor and on-location is cool; in fact, I'm well known in the industry for my creativity outside of the studio. But in the studio I can also create portraits that just can't be done well outside. There are looks and styles, like my Xtreme Athlete and fashion-inspired portraits, that really can only be created in the studio. That's a major reason I created The Anything Session: together we can design a complete session that features just the right amount of studio and outdoor that fits you.

Book now. You'll love your portraits. I guarantee it.
