the experience

We believe your senior session should be an experience like no other. After all, you are only this age once, and we want your senior portraits to reflect who you are at this special and important time in your life. We provide an in-person consultation for each of our clients to find out how to make your session stand out and customize it to fit your individuality. We want each of our seniors to have the royal treatment: every session comes with your own makeup artist and hair stylist to provide the ultimate pampering before your shoot. You deserve the absolute best when it comes to your senior portrait experience!

Senior Sessions


At Sarah Modene Photography, we are known for being the ONLY photography studio in Tampa Bay and Northwest Ohio to offer a complete professional makeover with each and every session. Included in each session is a wardrobe consultation to help plan each outfit you will wear, your choice of at least 2 unique locations, 2+ hours of shooting time, and a premier ordering session in the studio where you will select your final images and choose your custom prints and products.

We will help style your outfits for you and direct you to pose in ways that flatter you and reflect your personality, and our fun and talented makeover team will give you the supermodel treatment. 

Our dates are typically booked out 2-6 months in advance, so make sure you contact us well before the date you would like to book for your senior pictures. Our Senior Sessions begin at $300, and include anywhere between 1-2 different hair and makeup looks as well as a wardrobe consult, styling, and multiple outfit changes. Prints and products are purchased separately at your premier ordering session.






You deserve to have your senior pictures proudly displayed as artwork in your home. We offer many different options when it comes to preserving your memories for generations to come: from luxurious albums, to gallery wrapped canvases, to beautiful prints and image boxes. We even offer digital options with some of our collections, including apps for your phone with your pictures, and crystal drives with your high-resolution digital images. There really is something for everyone! Prints and products are purchased separately after your shoot at your premiere ordering session.
