Class of 2024 Greenfield Central Senior VIP | Bella

Bella's session was so much fun! We had to do it in 2 parts because the theater wasn't quite ready when we did her main session, but I'll always make exceptions like that for my VIPs! Bella really wanted a wildflower field for her senior photos, so after much searching between both of us, she came up with one! It ended up being a great location! I think I forgot to mention this in my last couple of blogs, so I'll have to go fix that, but first Bella came here and had her makeup done by our amazing makeup artist, Amy! Then from there we headed to her location! 

Bella also brought her dog along to get some shots with her! You are always welcome to bring a pet along to get photos with! Just make sure you have someone with you to handle them while we're shooting without them! 

Her pup even smiled for the camera :) 

While at the flower fields, we did find some other areas to shoot as well! This bridge was great! And I LOVE her outfit here! 

Bella was a cheerleader up until this year when she decided to pursue other things, but she wanted to commemorate that time in her life as well since it was such a big part of it! 

And then she wanted to grab a photo with mom! I love when they do this! Your momma is so important! Definitely grab a shot with her, you'll treasure it forever! 

As I mentioned earlier, we also did theater photos with Bella. We had to do this a few months later as the theater was getting redone at the time of her session, but it was WELL WORTH THE WAIT! This was by far my favorite part ... I just love stuff like this, and Bella was made for this shoot! She has such a fun personality! I threw a red gel on my backlight to really bring out the theater atmosphere! It was so perfect! 

I probably should have blogged the theater pics separately lol. It's so hard to choose! I definitely have a few more to add... we even played with fire a little at this shoot! Loved her idea of using it with this! 

What is your passion? I'd love to help you showcase it!  Class of 2025, signups for my next team will be in February! If you want an amazing senior photo experience, you should definitely sign up! You can learn more at https://www.shawnamariephotography.com/seniors/senior-experience 

Class of 2022 Greenfield Central High School Senior | Brynn


Brynn is on my class of 2022 Senior VIP team. She upgraded to my ELITE VIP option which means she got my VIP (normally $650 session) with hair and makeup and she will get a gorgeous signature album and a complimentary cap and gown session at the end of the year plus all of the other things that come with being on my team. These images are a few from her main session, plus her sneak video! Brynn had such a fun shoot. She had several outfit changes and looks and wasn't afraid to be a little different. Her dad is big time into Green Day, so the end of her shoot, she punked out and did some shots for him. They might be my favorite! lol But honestly, I love SO many from this shoot it's hard to pick... Good luck mom and dad;)




If you want your own amazing and unique senior session, I still have a few spots left this summer and fall, but don't wait, because they are going fast!

Class of 2020 1950s style





I should have been around in the 50s. I just love everything about it, and pretty much every year, some of my seniors also want to do something out of the 1950's. We've done an indoor diner and an outdoor diner so I wanted to do something different this year. I spent hours scouring the internet ... Then I found it, and I knew I had to make this happen! A whole entire house straight out of the 50s. and it was only an hour and 10 minutes from my house! Not only that, it was an airbnb so I could actually rent the place!




I chatted back and forth with the owner who was super accommodating and happy to have our group there. The girls did an amazing job putting together their outfits and playing the part. I'm still in the process of going through the photos, but these were some faves that I pulled out. <3

Class of 2020 it's your turn!

I've been talking about my model program the last few posts as it's time to choose my next group! This class of 2020 will be my 5th team and I am so excited to say that the experience has improved every year because I am ALWAYS striving to be better! Year number 5 is going to be amazing! But every year has been pretty great, and I have had the opportunity to connect with some really amazing young ladies. Nearly 50 girls that I still have contact with on social media ... that I am getting to watch go on to college and get their life started and hope that I played a small roll somewhere along the way. My team isn't about who's the most popular or the prettiest on the outside. I strive to show my girls inner beauty, and help them connect with girls they never would have known, but also to help them feel confident and gorgeous in their photos. I hope that every girl I've ever had on my team, and for that matter, the girls I have photographed who have not been on my team, know that they can come to me anytime for anything! In times where so many kids are taking their own lives and struggling to figure out where or how they fit in, it's important to know that there is someone out there who cares. I care! I'm always a text away, day or night. Don't ever hesitate to reach out.

I didn't set out to write about this, I was just going to show you one of my model's full gallery after her year of participating in every shoot she was able to ... but I started typing and that's what came out, so if you needed that, I hope you found this blog and that you either reach out and join this year's team, or just reach out in general. If you'd like to apply for my class of 2020 team just go to http://www.shawnamariephotography.com/forms/view.php?id=14  and fill out the form!

And now, I still want to show you one of my model's full galleries! I chose Katlyn's because not only did she participate in every single shoot that she could, her own personal shoot was very diverse as she is one busy girl and involved in a LOT!  I think her photos really speak for her personality <3  To see them all go to https://shawnamariephotography.shootproof.com/gallery/Katlyn  all you have to do to enter is type in your email address :)

Here are a couple of my faves from her shoots as well 

Indianapolis class of 2020 seniors | Join my team

Class of 2020- It's time for me to choose a new VIP model team!

So you've been watching all my girls the last few years and always wondered how you could do this too? Well now is your chance! I am looking to fill 15 or 16 spots on my class of 2020 senior VIP team! WHY would you want to be on my team?
  1. We have a blast!
  2.  You will make awesome new friends from different schools!
  3.  You get 4-6  photo shoots for less than my top Senior session!
  4.  If you do your session early, a portion of your fee will go straight to your photo order!
  5. Unlike most Rep teams, you do not HAVE to do any sharing or pimping me out. You do have to sign a model release so *I* can share your photos, but that's IT!  I'm not saying you won't want to ... but you don't HAVE TO!
  6. You can earn a super fun destination session AND cash! This year my team voted on Chicago. Where will you want to go? Team votes!
  7. You get to be in (and possibly on the cover) of my annual magazine! These are distributed all over town and the digital version is sent to every single senior photo inquiry I receive. You can see last year's HERE!
Here are a few of my favorites from our group shoots this year! I can not wait to see what we come up with next!  If you would like to be a part of my team, applications are going out this SUNDAY (January 27th) Early bird apps are going out SATURDAY (Jan 26) to get an earlybird app email your best email address to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or text 317-319-6045 or DM on any of my social media by FRIDAY Jan 25!

Class of 2019 Senior Elexus | Indianapolis Senior Photographer

Elexus came in at the end of summer for her senior session. She did my VIP session, so we had some really great variety! We did a couple in my home studio, then we hit up the local library, her high school, an old abandoned train, a friend's house with a great pond, Falls park and downtown Fortville! We crammed a TON in and had a blast doing it! She started out getting her makeup done by my hair and makeup artist, Amy. Then we did her studio shots with a messy bun. After that, Amy finished up her hair and we took off for the rest of our session. At our 2nd to last stop, we had water, and even though she knew we had one more place to go, she got all in and even soaked her hair ... a little scrunching and it was gorgeous for her next location as well! Here are a couple of photos from our day, and then if you want to see the full session, you can watch her video on my You Tube channel!  Be sure to subscribe while you're there!

If you're ready for your session, I am booking class of 2019 Spring sessions and I am booking 2020 summer and Fall sessions plus taking emails to get on my list of people to email about my VIP Model team that will go out in Jan/Feb. Email me to book your session or get on the list! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Hayleigh | Rushville Consolidated High School Class of 2019

One of my favorite senior products, and definitely a favorite among my senior clients is my custom senior book. About 90% of my seniors walk away with one of these! They are all custom designed specifically for each kid, so none of them are exactly the same. Hayleigh is one of my class of 2019 seniors that just recently finished up her ordering session. I love her book and wanted to share it with you! Also, a few of my favorite images from her session!


 
 
 
 
 

Class of 2019 Senior Olivia | Indianapolis Senior pictures

I haven't had a chance to blog all of my 2019 seniors so far. It's been a very busy summer! Probably the busiest June I have ever had! I love it! We have been able to do some really fun stuff, and summer weather makes for lots of different opportunities than everyone's usual favorite, Fall (which is great too! I just love seeing more people jump in for summer!) Speaking of Fall, I have like 7 sessions left for the entire Fall season, so if you want one, get in touch asap! You can call or text 317-319-6045 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to get that taken care of! Here is one of my recent seniors, Olivia from Rushville Consolidated High School. Olivia is (obviously) quite the artist and she also plays softball for her school. Here is her sneak video and a couple of my favorite images from her session!


 
 
 
 

Awesome Local Diner and a 50s themed Shoot! | Indianapolis Senior Pictures

Last week I touched on themed sessions. Here is another super fun theme we did with some of my class of 2019 Senior Models at Cammak Station in Yorktown, IN. There are several places in the area to do this type of theme, and 50s are just FUN! So much fun! I am in love with the look. Next time I go back to this place, I will be asking for permission to shoot inside as well! It's so cool inside! They have lots of awesome places to shoot outside as well! Check out some of the pics and our little sneak peek video I put together for the girls! And start thinking about something out of the box for your own senior session! What do you love? Is there an era you feel like you should have been born into? Is there a place you always go that makes you happy, that will remind you of your teen years for years to come? Think about it! Then give me a call! 317-319-6045. You can also email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Indianapolis Senior Photographer |Class of 2017 Senior Models

Class of 2017! It is YOUR time! I am so excited about this! I am not sure if it's because my own daughter is a senior, or if it's because of all of the ideas I have. I'm ready to blow all of your friends away with your pics! When we are done with your session, your story is going to be told, and all of your friends are going to be so jealous of your photos!

Indianapolis Senior Photographer | Congratulations Class of 2016!

What a year! I had quite the group of seniors this past year.  Academic scholarships, athletic scholarships and just an all out great group of genuinely nice girls! I couldn't be prouder of them for all they accomplished throughout their senior year. It's not easy to say goodbye to this group! But not forever! I expect you all to come back to me when it's time for babies! (I know your parents are saying SLOW DOWN! Not yet! lol!) But you know ... when that time comes, I'm here!

Congratulations on graduating and God Bless you all! I wish you all much success in your future. I can't wait to see what and where it brings you! Keep in touch! I would love to hear from each and every one of you, and if you need anything that I can help with, be sure to ask:)    xoxo  ~Shawna

Indiana Senior Photographer | Hamilton Southeastern Senior Katie

Katie is a class of 2016 Grad from Hamilton SouthEastern High School. I also had the privilege of having Katie as one of my senior models this past year. This girl had the most FUN expressions! We had a great time at her session and all of the model sessions as well! Katie opted for a mid shoot hair change for her main senior session, so my awesome hair and makeup artist, Amy, hung out with us for half the shoot. This is an option for anyone who adds hairstyling OR who does the "Spend the day with me" session!  If you are a 2016 senior and haven't done your photos yet ... what are you waiting for? I still have a FEW dates left in April! Give me a call or shoot me an email ASAP to get in! 317-319-6045 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Indiana Senior Photographer | Meet Marlee, Class of 2016 Senior Model

Meet Marlee from Hamilton South Eastern High School! Marlee's session was late this summer. We had a great time in downtown Pendleton and at Falls Park. There are also photos from a model shoot or two here. My models this year did a Boho themed shoot, a shoot at the Indiana State Fair and a waterfall shoot plus their own senior shoots and some headshots and a fun softball setup we did for some of them.  If you are class of 2017 I am already on the search for next year's team! It's a ton of fun and you get a LOT more photos through out the year all for about the same amount of money, so who wouldn't want to do it? If you're interested, send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and include links to your facebook, twitter and instagram accounts. I send out invites in early February, so talk to me now! Marlee-7351 copy
