Sunshine Soul Photography - Couture Senior Portraits

Jennifer Buchanan of Sunshine Soul Photography


Don’t settle for Senior Portraits that look just like everyone else’s and only offer a glimpse into who you are. This is a very special time in your life; you are about to embark on an incredible journey. You want the very best Heirloom Portraits and Custom Keepsakes to treasure for a lifetime. You also want an award winning photographer and industry expert to capture these important memories. YOU DESERVE THE VERY BEST FOR THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!

Your Senior Portraits should be a once in a lifetime experience that reflects the unique person you are and tells your WHOLE story. We specialize in full galleries and heirloom quality collections designed specifically for you, not just a simple snapshot for your yearbook.

We get to know who you are and what makes you tick so we can capture the real you. We spend time during a pre-session consultation designing the perfect session that tells YOUR story, not your classmate’s. During our consultation, we’ll chat about wardrobe, makeup and hairstyles, and locations to make sure you are prepared come shoot day and you have a one of a kind session designed around your interests and personality.

How can you tell your story with one outfit and in one location? As we go through the process of getting to know you, we’ll design the perfect session for you, but we’ll do it together! We’ll discuss outfit choices and location backgrounds to make sure you stand out in every scene.

As we go through outfit choices and possibilities, we’ll make sure to incorporate enough to tell the story of who you are at this time in your life. We have a detailed What to Wear Guide that will help you make your outfit decisions based upon your body style. During our consultation conversation, we’ll discuss all the possibilities for locations and make sure your session is designed with locations that are meaningful to you.

While digital images are important for archival purposes, we believe having tangible, heirloom quality products to pass down to future generations is just as important. We have priced our collections to ensure you get the best of both worlds! The possibilities of what we can design and create with your amazing portraits are endless. Great care has been taken to select the very best products available the world over. We will help guide you throughout every step of the design and selection process to ensure you get the very best heirloom quality art to display in your home and pass down to future generations – we will help you to choose what’s right for you and your family with no added sales pressure.

Anyone can snap a picture, but not just anyone can give you a complete gallery showing your very best to tell a complete story of this time in your life. Jennifer Buchanan has received several industry awards, is nationally published, and is recognized and has been voted as one of the world’s best senior portrait photographers by her peers.

Each year, Sunshine Soul Photography clients have the opportunity to participate in community based fundraisers or awareness campaigns. We accomplish our goals together through donating our time, talent, or gently used items to different causes that affect our local community. If you have an idea or a cause that could use our support, please let us know – we’re always looking for new and unique ways in which we can support our community!

Sunshine Soul Photography clients also get many client perks in addition to community based philanthropy. You get to be the first informed of unique destination shoot and modeling opportunities. You also have the opportunity to compete to earn an exclusive prom shoot for you and your group. At the end of the school year, we host a “Cap & Casual” party, where you can display your college T and wear your cap and gown for an exclusive shoot to get a couple professional cap and gown photos while having a little fun! These are all added bonuses and come at no cost to our clients.


I am a full service photographer, specializing in Couture Senior Portraits. I am passionate about photography and can’t wait to tell your story and leave you with a photo experience and product that you will treasure for a lifetime and hand down for generations to come.

I blend a unique photojournalistic style with classic portraiture. I am always looking for ways to push the bounds of my creativity and strive to constantly improve and refine my art through classes, associations, and workshops. Please check out the portfolio galleries on my website to see some examples of my work.

I have recently been voted as one of the Top 25 Upcoming Senior Portrait Photographers by The Twelfth Year and I’ve been published in national print magazines and blogs such as: Senior Style Guide; Modern Teen Style; Seniorologie; Beyond the Wanderlust; The Twelfth Year; Modern Senior; and others. I continue to spend a small fortune learning from the very best Senior Portrait photographers and artists in the industry to make sure I am staying on the cutting edge of technology, products, and everything else that makes your senior portrait experience something that you will remember and treasure for a lifetime!

I am a boutique photographer, which means I will guide you through each step of the process and act as your personal photographer-concierge. I will spend time visiting the site you select for your shoot, I will spend time talking with you about any other details and schedules, and I will give you the attention you deserve. I will not just be taking your pictures, I will be getting to know you.

Once the shoot is over, I pare down your gallery to about 35 of my favorites (this is often the hardest part for me because they will all be amazing!). I give each photo the five-star treatment to share with you during our Session Premier. During our Session Premier, I will show you a custom slideshow of my favorites, as well as provide any advice on options and custom design ideas. I use only the best professional printers and offer HEIRLOOM KEEPSAKE products. I only offer the BEST OF THE BEST. Quality and your satisfaction are guaranteed!

Every shoot and photography package is tailored to you and your life, and my goal is to exceed your expectations.

I believe every shoot should be fun and easy. My goal is to capture that special something that makes you YOU. Each session lasts about three hours and you can expect lots of different poses and backgrounds. We WILL have so much fun!!
