Congratulations Class of 2021

This is your year!

To reflect upon who you are. To discover who you’re becoming. To make memories with lifelong friends. And to step with confidence into your next exciting life chapter.

Everyone’s life is a story; and seniors, let me tell you: you’re just getting to one of the very best parts. As a photographer, I feel so lucky to be a part of it. I’ve worked with hundreds of high school seniors, and among them, one thing is always constant: if ever there was a time worth documenting, this is it.

At Pattie Locke Photography, we specialize exclusively in senior portraits. We know how big of a deal this is, and take extra steps to make every session a once-in-a-lifetime experience — from advice on what to wear, to professional hair and makeup, to a fun, on-location photo shoot that’s perfectly YOU.

You will make so many beautiful, lasting memories this year. I can’t wait to help you make some of them last a lifetime.

My Style

As a photographer, my style represents what I like, and my brand represents who I am. Over the years, my photography evolved from a creative outlet to a technical skill to an art. Now I just photograph the look I love: lighting that is soft and natural, set in a location that fits the subject’s look and spirit. My signature style is fresh, modern, bold, and on point with current fashion and editorial photography trends. It’s authentically me. And if it speaks to you, I might be a great fit as your photographer. I only take a few clients each month, so if you have an ideal season or setting in mind, be sure to book early (many clients book a year in advance!).

My Story

My love of photography emerged soon after graduating college, as a creative outlet that brought balance to my corporate career. In the early 90s, I merged my business background with my artistic passion, opening Pattie Locke Photography. In 2013, when all three of my children left the nest, I poured a renewed level of energy into my photography, traveling all around the country and internationally for workshops and to shoot with some of the world’s best photographers. I also relaunched my brand with an exclusive focus on high school senior portraiture… because in my opinion, high school seniors are just the BEST. I never tire of capturing your positive and truthful nature, your unbridled spirits, and your confidence, which sometimes lies just under the surface and is so beautiful to see emerge.

My Studio

Now more than ever, everybody has a camera. And that means you have a lot of options when it comes to your senior portrait photographer. Here are eight reasons high school seniors choose our studio:

Senior portraits are all we do.
We’re the only studio that specializes exclusively in high school seniors.

We don’t just create images; Pattie tells authentic visual stories.
We know you have one, and can’t wait to tell it for you.

We’re centered around you.
The entire PLP process is centered around getting to know you, and preparing you for the perfect photo session. We love working with high school seniors, and it shows.

Hair & make-up included.
You want you to feel great about everything surrounding your portrait session. A flawless experience begins with getting your hair and makeup done by our professional team. Our makeup artists apply special camera-ready, highly pigmented makeup that looks both natural and fabulous in photographs, allowing you to roll into your photo shoot with complete confidence.

Flexible in-studio and on-location options.
Nobody wants their senior photos done at the same place as all their friends. You’re unique, and we make sure your portraits are as well.

We’re lighting perfectionists.
We use unmatched techniques and systems to create the perfect lighting, indoors or out.

Not a volume photographer.
We only accept a select number of clients each month so that we can give each senior’s photos the attention they deserve.

And most importantly… the photos.
The most important reason to choose Pattie Locke Photography speaks for itself. We pour our heart into creating authentic, stunning images that our clients absolutely love. View samples from recent sessions here.
