HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS

Session Options

MATT’S HOME
Matt lives in the northeast corner of River Forest. The "golden hour" is particularly compelling with limited openings.

ANYWHERE IN OPRF
Whether at your home, one of the many parks (Lindbergh is great!), or Thatcher Woods, Matt will capture a variety of great photos of your Senior.

FOREST PARK STUDIO
Many sessions have been captured in the beautiful north light of PDR Productions, a Forest Park studio owned by Matt's colleague Peter Rossi. If you are looking for a traditional portrait, Matt is also able to shoot with strobe lights in the studio. Additional images can be captured on Madison Street, weather permitting.

ON LOCATION
From the Chicago River Walk to the lakefront to a favorite city park, there's nothing like the energy of photos taken with the beautiful city as a backdrop. We'll shoot almost anywhere it's legal within a 12 mile radius of Downtown Oak Park.
