Beautiful

Sessions

Because you don’t need a momentous occasion to celebrate you.

Just be you —

in all your glory.

You play so many different roles in life: friend, mom, colleague, loving partner.

During your Beautiful Session, you can step into the role you were literally born to play: yourself.

Any age

Age ain’t nothin’ but a number — I believe it with my 
whole heart.

You’re never too young or too old to connect with the beauty and power of being a woman.

Any STage

Who says you need some big milestone to treat yourself to a studio photo experience?

Waking up this morning as the one and only you is reason enough to celebrate. 

What’s Your Reason?

Women are stuck behind the camera for too many life occasions. 

Here’s your permission slip to get out in front for once! So… What are you celebrating?

You got that big promotion.

You quit your soul-sucking job.

You sent your last kid off to college.

You finished your last round of chemo.

You defended your dissertation.

You finalized your divorce.

You’re still thriving, despite a global pandemic.

You finally got bangs.

You bought a new shirt. (Seriously, though…)

Sandi is a true professional & expert of her craft!

I am not a fan of getting my photos taken but she has made the experience very easy for me and my branding photos have always looked amazing! She just has the right touch and eye for the job!

I Couldn’t have had a better experience than working with Sandi Shipley Photography. The quality of her work is amazing. From the beginning we were set up with a wonderful hair and makeup artist that helped my daughter Veronica feel comfortable and relaxed. Sandi really valued our opinion and included us in every decision.

I highly recommend using Sandi Shipley Photography she is really professional & artistic.

Sandi was an absolute joy from start to finish!

She is an awesome communicator and has extensive knowledge in helping to apply your vision to come through in photographs.

The whole process was so much fun, and I would book another session with her in a heartbeat. If you’re looking for a photographer in the Phoenix area, look to Sandi.

Sandi was absolutely incredible to work with. She was professional & organized from the beginning.

She made a very stressful process smooth and simple. It was so easy! Not only was the process seamless from beginning to end but the photos of my son’s Senior session were absolutely stunning! He was sooo happy with them and so was I! She is truly talented, so much fun to work with, and so incredibly kind! The pictures were super high quality and so creative. We are very happy clients….can’t wait for my 9 year old to graduate as we will use Sandi again.

So much to say about this wonderful creator!!! With Sandi, she took the time to get to know our daughter, her interests, even her music! She made fabulous suggestions that truly fit my daughter’s ‘vibe’. The shoot was so easy and fun, and props from Sandi’s wardrobe collection were excellent additions. Sandi’s passion shown through and put my daughter at ease, working her magic…she captured the fun spirit, mischief and soul in our daughter. The images were so stunningly gorgeous and admittedly gave this proud mama a few tears of joy at the memories she captured for us.

Sandi Shipley - You’re a true artist! Bless you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between the different experience packages?

What’s the difference between the different experience packages?

I offer three senior experience packages: Signature, Luxe, and Couture. 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, scarves, and clothing pieces for my seniors 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 senior guys 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?

You choose the location! Pick spots in the 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 half your day enjoying this fun 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…
