The Forte Senior Portrait Experience:

You might ask… Why should I do senior portraits in the first place? I take selfies and pics with my friends all the time!…..Your senior portraits should be a much bigger experience than just taking selfies with your friends.  These images should reflect the best of what you are right now in this moment in time.  Having professionals do your hair and make-up, helping you decide on locations, helping you pick the right outfits, making sure you look great and most importantly making sure you have a great time and get amazing images.
