Senior, Nicholas

"I knew from the minute I visited Roosh’s website that she was the photographer that I wanted to take my son’s Senior Pictures. I absolutely loved the style and quality of her pictures. Roosh made the entire process really easy. She worked around our schedule and booked the session quickly. We were able to see the proofs within days of the photo shoot and had the finished products in less than 2 weeks. She was wonderful with my son and he felt very comfortable with her. We are so pleased with our decision to use Roosh Photography. I can’t thank her enough for taking beautiful pictures that I will cherish for a lifetime!!" -Mrs. Townsend

Senior, Taylor, Class of 2017

"My family and I had such a wonderful experience with Roosh for my senior pictures. I was very nervous because I don't like being in front of the camera, but Roosh made me feel at ease. I was able to call, video chat, and text Roosh whenever I had any questions. She was always extremely willing to help ease my stress in any way possible. We picked out all of my outfits together from the accessories, to the shoes and she helped me choose which shapes and colors would compliment me and the camera. I had a wonderful experience getting my hair and makeup done before the shoot by Yisell; the makeup and hair are extremely professional and well-done. We had a lot of fun conversation before the shoot which eased a lot of my nerves. The shoot was so much fun! I thought it was going to be very serious but Roosh made it flow naturally and brought out the best of my personality to capture in the photos. Roosh was very accommodating my all of my needs and requests, I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. My family and I spent 3 hours with Roosh during the viewing and ordering session. She creates a wonderful video of the shoot for her clients and walked us through all the pictures and ordering options. Her expertise helped us immensely to narrow down exactly what we were looking for. Her prints are high-quality and absolutely gorgeous. The photos are incredible, she captures every moment so beautifully.My family and I are so grateful for everything that Roosh has done for us and the time she spent working with us. We have nothing but prestigious things to say about her and her business. She is absolutely wonderful and I would recommend her to everyone. Roosh, your photos are absolutely stunning, I never thought I would see myself the way you captured me. Thank you for all the time and effort you spent working with me and my family, thank you for the absolutely wonderful experience, and thank you for making me feel beautiful for the first time in a long time. You are an incredible woman and you run a fantastic business. If I could give you ten stars I would!" ----Taylor Welch

Frequently Asked Questions


What if I have a breakout before my session? Please, please do not mess with it. Between the professional make-up and the editing that will be completed it will most likely not be noticeable or it will be able to be removed. Do not irritate it more. Do not put products on it that will dry out your skin or cause your skin to flake. If it is left alone, most likely we can take care of it in editing.

What happens if it rains or snows? If it rains we will make a decision the day of your session. If it rains, I wait until 2-4 hours prior to your schedule session to make the call on whether we will shoot or not. Usually by 12/1pm.

If it is overcast, we will still shoot. We only reschedule if there is thunderstormor the temps drop below freezing, or if the wind is too high and is cause for concern as deemed by the photographer. Usually morning storms clear up by lunch time and your session will continue as usual. In the event the weather drops below freezing the session will be rescheduled. If it is overcast your session will continue. (I actually love photographing in overcast weather! It makes for amazing photos!)

Are the girls on your website models? No. None of my clients are models. All clients on the website are regular young ladies. I help to guide, teach and show you how to pose to get you the photos you want!

How to Prepare for Your Session



• Hair should be clean, straight and ready to be styled. If your hair is wet and the stylist has to dry it and additional time is needed you will be charged accordingly.

• Finger nails should be clean and tidy. They will definitely show! Color is up to you.

DO NOT spray tan or overly sun tan 2 weeks prior to your session. You skin color could look fake, uneven and “off” and may not be correctable. If your skin is uneven due to sun exposure it is not considered part of the normal editing process. Newly or over tanned skin also photographs unevenly and your skin will show the uneveness in your photos. Please be aware of your tan lines if you are selecting outfits that will show them. Avoid tan lines as much as possible prior to your session. Do not tan (any type) at least 2 weeks prior to your session. Tan lines are not considered a part of the editing process unless it is requested at an additional fee.

• Eyebrows should be groomed and tidy. The camera shows everything so if you need to have any other grooming/waxing completed please do so 48-72 hours prior to your session to avoid redness. Upper lip hair should be waxed if you have any. It can not be removed during editing.

• Pack and iron outfits neatly into a rolling suitcase. This makes it the easiest as we are moving from location to location. In your bag you should pack your regular make-up, your accessories, jewelry, shoes, props and your outfits.

• Your outfits should be ironed and pressed neatly. If your outfits are wrinkled, they will not be edited to remove wrinkles. Please make sure your wardrobe is pressed and ready.

What to Wear


What types of outfits photograph well? Think COLOR. Neutrals are ok only if you pair it with something colorful or it is a single outfit. Please DO NOT repeat colors in your outfits.

Pair it with TEXTURE-Lace, mesh, rouching, etc.

ADD a LAYER like a denim jacket or colorful cardigan or other layering piece

ADD ACCESSORIES- hair pieces/hats, necklaces, jewelry, bracelets, earrings.


GRAPHICS- Think large patterns and bold designs. The outfit to the left is an example. No small prints please.

Outfits That Showcase Your Personality Are Key

Pre-Session Checklist


☐Finger nails and toe nails tidy (no chips in nail polish)

☐Pack in a rolling suitcase

☐3-5 outfits, pressed

☐Jewelry (bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings) ☐Other Props (hats, scarves)

Proper undergarments for outfits (strapless bra’s etc.)

☐Shoes (bring a pair of flip flops too for walking between locations)

☐Layering pieces (denim jacket, cardigans, leather jacket)


After your session you will have your viewing and ordering session. Ordering sessions are conducted in person in my home office. Please allow 1-2 hours. The better you prepare for your appointment the better able you will be to make decisions on what you want to order. In order to prepare for your viewing and ordering session please consider the following:

Please have all key decision makers available for your ordering appointment.

Make sure Mom, Dad, or anyone else that needs to review photos and make decisions will be there. This is the time to have a professional help guide you to order your photos. We do not offer online gallery ordering.

Please make sure Mom and/or Dad has their eye glasses to be able to read and see options.

Please think about what the purpose of your photos is to be and make a list! Are they to display in your home, perhaps as a wall gallery or single portrait? Are they going to be going into an album? Or are they for gifts? Are they for announcement cards?

If you are seeking a wall portrait, please look around your home and consider where you would like to place your portraits, the size you may need and anything else that may be of importance. If you are not sure what size canvas or print you need, we can help you with that! You just need to bring me the measurements of your wall and if you like, grab a quick photo on your cell of that wall. And don’t forget to record your measurements on either your cell phone or a piece of paper. To begin to get some ideas of wall groupings please check out the page on my site with different examples of what sizes look great on a wall, and what sizes do not. http://www.rooshphotography.com/wallgroupings

Prior to your session, it will be helpful to make a list of people that you will be purchasing products for. Make two lists, one for you and one for gifts to friends and family. Bring your lists with you to your session. This will help you to be organized during your ordering session. For example:

Photos for me: Luxury leather coffee table display album, Wall canvas grouping for the hallway, 5x7 for Dad's desk, 5x7 for Mom's desk at work, Custom graduation announcements (# you will need) 10 Digital Files

Gifts: Accordion albums for Grandma, 5x7 for Aunt Jenny, 8x10 for Uncle Henry's House, 5x7 for my boyfriend/girlfriend

Also make sure to make a quick note if you will need custom announcement cards. Please bring with you all of the information that you may want on your card. I can create custom cards for your family, baby, graduation, holiday or anything else you may desire. If you have this prior to your session please e-mail it to me and I will have a card prepared for you to view at your session.

Payment: We accept all major credit card payments only. We also offer payment plans through PayPal Credit. With PayPal Credit, you can enjoy special financing offers like this one: No Payments + No Interest if paid in full in 6 months on purchases of $99 or more. All sales are final and non-refundable.
