The PDP Senior Experience


“Phil had great suggestions for ways to capture that natural shot versus the overly posed picture. He found creative locations that I would have never thought would look good in a picture, but ended up being amazing! He was professional yet relaxed, making it a great experience! I absolutely loved all of my photos!” 

Jack Obert



The overall experience was 10/10! As a pretty awkward person, Phil helped me out a lot with how to pose, find the right light and how to be more comfortable in front of the camera.

I really enjoyed working with Phil and I felt like he really tried to capture my "vibe" in the pictures he took. As someone who's extremely awkward in pictures, it was nice to be able to have someone take my picture who was good at making it not awkward.
All of my pictures turned out exactly as a I was hoping and I was thrilled with the editing choices made and I felt like overall my senior pictures experience was a 10/10!

I run a full service studio and believe in offering eye catching products that you will want to show off! Let's be real for a moment...printing out your own images totally sucks, right? What lab do I use? How do I upload them? Dangit it keeps cropping off my head! These are all frustrations I've heard from Mom's trying to order prints for their seniors in the past. At PDP, I work with every senior to custom design your photo products so you don't have to worry about doing it on your own. I offer a variety of high quality photo products such as custom luxury albums, custom designed image boxes, beautiful canvas and metal prints and digitals. I believe that your senior photos should last and that's why I offer photo products that will stay with you for generations to come.
