your senior photography experience


Click the button below and I’ll give you your ultimate stress-relief guide for planning your senior photo shoot wardrobe! This treasure trove of tips, clever workarounds, and photo samples is here to ensure your senior session experience is nothing short of magical.


what not to wear guide

I understand the importance of capturing your true personalities, so no awkward poses here! I take time to know you both, ensuring your images reflect your uniqueness. It’s always my mission to create a relaxed natural vibe during the shoot. None of my work so far has featured professional models, I just have a knack for making my seniors look like pros! 😉

Photos that feel like YOU!

In my opinion, each senior portrait experience should be unique, so I don't use the same poses for everyone! I like to go with the flow, giving you easy prompts that allow you to throw your personality into your movements, making your photos truly one-of-a-kind.

Authentic Storytelling

I’m a firm believer that your senior portrait experience should be the BEST. ONE. EVER. and I’m here to make sure that can happen. I will provide you with a ton of resources during planning so that you will be fully prepared for your session. From location, to what to wear, I've got you covered!

Stress-Free Experience

This luxury photography experience is once in a lifetime, with the option to include professional makeup & hairstyling, and a fashion consultation to help curate your perfect look for senior portraits

Spoil Yourself

If you like Star Wars, Disney, sitcoms that make you laugh (like the Office or New Girl) then we’re gonna have a ball together! When I’m not drinking obscene amounts of coffee, or eating tacos from the Taco Stand (if you’ve never eaten there and live in So-Cal then we need to change that, pronto), you will probably find me on the banks of a river casting trout bait, or more likely, chasing my 3 kiddos around a campsite! I love exploring new places and taking my camera along for the ride. Adventure is out there! Let’s go find it together!

Hi, I’m Salisha!

I'm in, Let's book!

One of my favorite parts of my job is finding new and exciting places to photograph. I've lived all over the state of California, but 25 of those years have been within Tuolumne county. During that time I’ve explored all over our tri-county area of Calaveras, Tuolumne, and Stanislaus, and I've handpicked my absolute favorite spots from all 3 counties and compiled them into an awesome guide to help you choose the best location for your epic photoshoot! Each of my seniors get's access to this 36-page location guide upon booking. Looking for something new to explore instead? I’m game for that too! I’m always down to travel to capture something fun and new!

Salisha took my senior portraits and I am obsessed!

She took my picture inspiration, recommended the perfect location, and I loved the way the pictures turned out! She made me feel super comfortable and was super helpful with my poses and outfits. I'm looking forward to working with Salisha again!

I discovered Salisha's photography on Instagram and after seeing the vivid and engaging photos, I scheduled her for my senior pictures. She quickly contacted me after I booked a session through her website, and I planned a session with her for the following week. She was incredibly professional while creating a comfortable environment during the photoshoot. Many classmates complimented me on my senior photos, and I would book with her again.

Love, love, love how my photos turned out!
She makes the session so much fun.
Definitely recommend her as a photographer for any sort of photos!

I am proud to offer my clients a list of great locations for senior photos. Organized into zones based on proximity to your area, we’ll be able to walk through various locations to choose the perfect backdrop for your senior portrait session.


Of course! Fill out an inquiry form and drop me a line in your comments and I can send you the link to a senior gallery that will vibe with your current vision or location choice. 


Nope, I only give my clients the absolute best quality images and the raw files typically aren’t a reflection of my work and current portfolio. If you’re worried about file size and enlargements, then I gotchu! Your gallery will include the perfect size images for gorgeous canvas and metal prints.


I deliver my photos via private online gallery. Every wedding and portrait packages include access to high quality file downloads for each delivered image, available directly from your gallery. You’ll also be able to order stunning prints and products, such as metal-prints (my personal fav), canvases, albums, and more!


I send each of my seniors a Style Guide to help you better prepare for your session. In the guide, you’ll learn all about what looks good on camera, how to incorporate variety into your wardrobe, and which accessories take your shoot from sweet to stunning. I even have an additional list of What NOT to wear, so you know what choices to steer clear of!


Full hair and makeup is strongly suggested for your photo shoot. You can absolutely add-on hair and makeup services by my talented artist as a part of your booking, or book a stylist of your choosing.


Ideally, you should be taking your senior photos the summer before or the autumn of your senior year. If you prefer to take them in the Spring, you should be booking your shoot for no later than April to leave time for post-processing and product turnaround before graduation. Spring spots fill up quickly


Of course! The senior guys I work with also receive style and
location guides.
