Our Senior Session is a type of boutique photography, tailored to personal interests and passions of your senior.  This luxury experience is usually a gift of acknowledgement for their achievements.

During the session, personality and natural beauty is brought forward, by showcasing their passions from fashion to sports.

It is quite amazing what a beautiful photograph does for your self-worth.  Working with Terra allows their confidence to blossom, slowly building and igniting into a new found self-assured young adult.




This experience and portfolio build makes a perfect graduation gift for your child or grandchild's unfolding future.

Capture your teen's personality and youth while commemorating their academic and/or sport accomplishments.

These images become an asset to include in any online or print portfolio.  Having professional images which state confidence is a must, to stand out from the crowd in the academic, sports or corporate world.

With more and more companies performing an online search before setting an interview, this is a great advantage to be unique.




Destination Anywhere: 

Add your Senior Session onto a one-on-one (parent/teen) or family trip anywhere!  Tropical styles on a Polynesian Island, sailing views of the Great Barrier Reef or across the larger pond to Europe! 

The ideas are endless and Terra will capture your family moments, along with your senior's session!

These sessions are limited and become a priceless experience of a lifetime. 

(one to three days)

Destination New Zealand:

From peaceful Kauri forests in the North to beautiful snowy slopes on the Southern Alps.  Pick the right stage to show off who you are.

country or beach locations available.

Begin your exclusive senior portrait session with a pampered moment in the company of an experienced makeup artisan.  What better way to look amazing, than relaxing while getting your features highlighted in a subtle and natural way. (optional)

Then you are off to the location with unlimited amounts of your own clothing and accessories.  Do not forget the hats, scarves, jewellery and shoes.  These little additions dramatically increase the look and feel of the final beautifully styled image.

The magic begins with Terra, creating different styles from you and your accessories, lighting and natural backgrounds.

For sports:  Coordinating with coaches to access fields and courts is the first step.  Dramatic lighting along with your signature moves is second.  It takes time to get the right shot, so collaborating together is the last step and the key to our magazine quality success!

After the session, look forward to a private Gallery Premiere viewing of your images within three weeks.  Prepare to be amazed.  Think of how to display those beautiful images:  gift prints for family and friends, unique artisan wall prints for display and gorgeous heirloom albums which stand the test of time.




Terra is an accomplished American high school senior photographer, who's travelled the world to settle her family here, in New Zealand.  She specializes in transforming senior portraits into an experience as unique as the seniors, themselves.

She has become very passionate about teens.  In her own youth, she lacked personal confidence and security about life's direction, as we all experience.  She states, "In photography, at each session, I noticed teens nervously arriving and by the end of the session, they were completely a different person, standing tall, confident and self-assured."  This is when she knew she needed to specialize in senior photography.

Terra achieves these results by spending extensive time, before and during the session, understanding your senior's passions and talents, bringing forth their personality through the camera and onto print.

Terra comes with personal accolades from the highest professional print laboratories throughout the United States.  These companies have all displayed her images on their products.  Many thousands of professional, world renowned and amateur photographers continue to view her work.
