Fort Wayne **class of 2015** high school senior ladies:

You are beautiful.  You are nearly an adult.  (don’t freak out)  And you know what you want.  Your Senior Pictures are a once-in-a-lifetime event, so do something you want!  Do something amazing.

We.  Love.  Amazing.

We are pros.  We love our jobs.  And we love to think big.  We love to embrace vibrancy, fashion and playfulness in our images.  Our clients love their images and walk away with an experience they will never forget.  Because we believe in capturing the essence of every person that we work with, we do not settle for hum-drum looks, settings or poses.  Nor do we believe in ever going on auto-pilot with any photo session.  We work closely with you to create images that you (and your mom) will love for a lifetime because they reflect YOU…they capture the essence of YOU.

Call 260-307-2876 to schedule your senior portrait session.

We have 4 different sessions to choose from: Essence, Character, Core and Foundations.  

If you want to know what it feels like to be a model for a day (or if you are an aspiring model), then the Essence Session is absolutely the best choice for you.  There is simply nothing else like it.  The Essence Session is the ULTIMATE customized senior portrait experience!  It includes:

  • Up to 4 hours of photography
  • 9-12 outfits
  • Up to 4 locations in Fort Wayne, Indiana
  • 2 different professional hair & makeup styles (done on location)

Introducing our Spring 2015 Intern: Samantha Berning

We are so excited to introduce our Spring 2015 High School Intern Samantha Berning.  Beauty, brains, talent & grace — this girl has it all.  Samantha is a senior at Concordia Lutheran High School.

She is energetic and health-conscious — school, soccer, gymnastics, and tennis keep her quite busy, but she is most excited about her Shadowlands Photography Internship class this semester.  Sam is very excited to learn about lighting and color within the photography world but as a future entrepreneur, she is also interested in learning about how to manage and operate a small business.  Next year she plans to study Cosmetology and Esthiology at Aveda Fredric’s Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana.  One day she hopes to start her own salon.

“My Shadowlands Photography Internship experience will help me so much now and in the future,” accounts Sam, explaining her vision for her internship.  “I can’t wait to get started and learn more and more each day!”

Our Shadowlands Photography High School Internship Program offers a variety of positions throughout the year, with different opportunities during the spring and fall semesters — as well as summer.  We are committed to training and raising up tomorrow’s creatives, entrepreneurs and business leaders so we have developed an active internship program for Fort Wayne high school students.

Samantha’s internship involves a wide scope of activities and will provide her valuable experience in the areas of Photography, Branding, Videography, Social Media Marketing, Customer Relations, Product Research & Development, Graphic Design, Packaging, and more.
