Interview with Conner Botts - Washburn Rural Class of 2023 - Echo Cliff - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

Conner was so much fun to hang out with and photograph. It was just a really great experience. He had a good energy and was genuinely interested in the session. I loved it! We started off at Echo Cliff, which has always been one of my favorite places to shoot and then we headed to Topeka to get some awesome sunset shots downtown. That way we got a really balanced session. Echo Cliff was a perfect spot for his cowboy gear and once we got to downtown, the sun setting was just incredible. It made for some of the most unique cityscape images we've ever shot! A session, I know h e had a great time at and with images of himself that he can be proud of. Mom was there too and she really made the session a lot of fun. The two of them have a great connection! Thanks for checking out his session!!! Super happy with his shoot! T.H.

Abi McNary - Santa Fe Trail High Class of 2023 - Osage County's Best Photographers

Abi has such a bright and happy personality, it only makes sense that her senior session matched perfectly!  Her warm smile looked amazing with the warm sunset!  Everything matched, from her outfits to her eyes and the sky and the lake.  It was breathtaking!  There were so many amazing images from her session, we struggled to pick only a few.  Here are some of our top favorites! T.H. Peterson: What are you enjoying most your senior year at SFT? Abi:  I am enjoying being involved as much as I can whether it’s cheer/dance/ or band to helping out with the musical and decorating the school for events. T.H.

Kory Sutton - Shawnee Heights High School - Class of 2023 - Topeka's Best Senior Portraits

Kory's session was great! My assistant and I were commenting just how much he looked like a model in his photos! He had quite the presence. He also knew how to pull of a serious look just as good as a smile. He was a blast to photograph. His session was shorter than a regular senior shoot but we were able to get some amazing images in the process. I'm thrilled with the results and it was a pleasure to meet and photograph Kory. Thanks for checking out his shoot!  To book your own session, please call Tommy or Holly at 785.793.2492 or 785.213.0812 or email
