Senior Portrait Sessions by Melissa Tash

Melissa is now offering, on a limited basis, custom senior portrait sessions.   Let’s have fun capturing your personality in a session designed just for you.  


Types of Portraits 

Let’s plan at least 3 looks

  • Formal portrait that your family will be thrilled to hang on the wall.
  • Casual outfit showing your senior style.
  • 1 to 2 Personality portraits – featuring you and your passions.

See below for a  session that we did for a senior that loved his dog, skeet shooting, bee keeping and playing the tuba in marching band!


Typically we’ll choose a week night that we are both available.  We’ll start with your “formal portrait”.  Then move into the more casual and passion portraits.  But depending on the location choose and activities, it may vary.  We’ll make a custom plan just for you.


Formal:  Let’s collaborate with mom on the outfit, because this is the one that will probably end up on your’s and grandparent’s walls.   Solids are best.  Layers and accessories can add depth and detention to the portrait. 

Causal Outfit:  Anything goes here.  Just be you.  Want to add a pet or a best friend?  Awesome.  Let’s plan for that. 

Passions:  Bring all the stuff.  Uniforms, Sports Equipment, Metals, whatever it may be…   We can even coordinate to go to a special location if desired.  

  • Send a picture to me of all the clothing, accessories, or activity gear you are considering.

Ordering and Investment

Ordering:  Once we capture the images, I will edit and post finished images to our on-line ordering system.  You’ll have 7 days to make your selections.  If you need an ordering consultation, I’ll be happy to schedule a zoom meeting to help with selections. 

Investment:  $1,500.  The session fee is $500 & $1000 is a credit towards your portrait order.   This session includes lightly retouched digital files of all your proofs.
