Senior Portrait


Because this moment will be a memory before you know it.


It’s not a photo session. It’s an 


I’m here to capture your unique joy and confidence in the here and now — and all the excitement you’re feeling for what lies ahead.


Your Looks

Your sweetest sundress. 
Your favorite pair of jeans. 

Your letter jacket. Your best suit and tie.

Wear what makes you comfortable — this is your day!


Your Location

We can shoot in the studio or in your favorite spots around Phoenix and Scottsdale.

So… Where do you see yourself?


Your Life

This isn’t about snapping the 
perfect Instagram pic… 

I want you to look at your photos and 
see the real you in full color.

(But I bet you’ll get a new profile 
photo out of this, too 😌)

This is for you too.

You don’t have to love snapping selfies to have a blast with your senior experience.

Whether you love dressing to the nines for a night out or would prefer to be gaming or hanging out with friends, you deserve to capture this moment in your life, too.

You’re on the cusp of great things!
So let’s lasso the confidence and excitement you’re feeling during our time together.

The entire experience was a really fun time overall. Everything was exactly how I wanted it, and the pictures turned out better than I could have ever expected.

Our family has used Sandi Shipley Photography for senior photographs for our two oldest children (four years apart), and we are looking forward to having her take senior photos of our youngest in two years. 

Not only is Sandi a warm, friendly, all around great person, but she also has a gift for working with each senior’s personality to create photos that truly represent her subject. She has an amazing eye for location, lighting, clothing choice, accessories and poses! Both of our daughters felt so comfortable working with Sandi, and because of this, she was able to capture each of our girls’ personalities. 

We are so happy with our photos and had a very difficult time narrowing down our favorites because there were so many fantastic choices! I highly recommend Sandi Shipley Photography.

My senior experience was an incredible experience as well as a super fun process!

Sandi Shipley helped take my ideas and make them a reality, and helped me to take photos for not only high school graduation, but also athlete pictures and work professional portraits. Even two years after my session, I still find myself using the pictures for various uses such as school related positions and even LinkedIn profile pictures. Sandi Shipley photos are a must have for any guy looking for photos that will last him countless years of uses

A photography experience that your senior will never forget! Sandi is an incredible photographer…
her eye for details is amazing!

The entire experience from the minute you set up a date for your shoot to the very last tiny detail is beyond impressive. Sandi does not only create end capture the full personality of your Senior but she gives the graduate and parent an experience neither will ever forget. From the small gifts sent in the mail, to the pop up changing tent, music during the shoot creating the right mood, and the cutest lush space for the image reveal using music video for the final presentation goes beyond any expectations. No detail is overlooked with Sandi. I would highly recommend and chose Sandi Shipley for your Seniors experience. Thank you Sandi!

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s are the differences between experience packages?

What’s the difference between the different experience packages?

I offer 3 types of sessions Senior Portraits, Headshots and Branding. They vary by shoot time, number of looks and locations, and inclusion of professional hair and makeup. All experiences include an in-studio pre-planning session, shoot time that’s all about you, and an in-studio image premiere and ordering appointment.

for a breakdown of the three different types of sessions.

What happens during our pre-planning session?

What happens during our pre-planning session?

Your in-studio pre-planning session is designed to get you comfortable with the process and ask all your questions about what’s coming! We’ll talk through shoot locations, outfits, and hair and makeup. It’s also a great opportunity for us to get to know each other before your shoot.

What should I wear?

What should I wear?

I love helping my clients select their outfits for their sessions. I meet with most of them before the big day to help put together clothing and accessories, as well as hair and makeup ideas. 

I also have a fun style closet in my studio with hats, jewelry, shoes, and clothing pieces for my clients to add in for their sessions.

Can I do my own makeup?

Can I do my own makeup?

I always recommend working with our professional makeup artist. It makes a huge difference! But if you plan to do your own makeup, I suggest practicing a few looks before your shoot. 
P.S. Worried about a makeup artist not being able to match your skin tone or work with your hair type? Rest easy: All the pros I work with are well versed in working with a range of skin tones and hair textures.

Why is professional hair and makeup important?

Why is professional hair and makeup important?

There’s a big difference between everyday makeup and “camera-ready” makeup. The pros I work with have a ton of experience creating hair and makeup looks that are natural but show up great in finished photos. 

Plus, letting someone else handle your hair and makeup can make the whole experience feel even more special — like a spa day rolled into your photo shoot!

Do guys need professional hair and makeup, too?

Do guys need professional hair and makeup, too?

Plenty of my male clients like to hand their skin prep and grooming over to a pro, too. You deserve to look your best for your experience. A professional hair and makeup artist will even out your skin tone, cover up any annoying blemishes, and make sure your hair looks great for your shoot. 

Where will my photo experience take place?

Where will my photo experience take place?

I have several locations I can recommend or we can pick spots in the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale area that mean something to you… I’ll be sure they look amazing on camera.

How long will my shoot last?

How long will my shoot last?

Depending on the package you select, the shoot itself will be between one and two hours. If you’re getting professional hair and makeup done (highly recommended!), that can take up to two hours as well. So plan on spending about 4 hours enjoying this luxe experience!

How much will my photos be edited?

How much will my photos be edited?

I believe in a light touch! I want your photos to look like the real you, not an unrecognizably airbrushed version of you.
I’ll take care of little things like blemishes and stray hairs during editing, and if you want other edits when you see your preview images, we can talk about those, too.

When do I get to see my photos?

When do I get to see my photos?

I’ll have your final gallery completed within 7 to 10 business days. That’s when we’ll meet up again for your in-studio image premiere and ordering appointment.
BUT! I’m always posting sneak peeks and previews of my favorite images on social media (I may even text you one that really takes my breath away). so you’ll rarely have to wait that long…
