You have ARRIVED. It's finally your senior year - a year filled with joy and excitement for what lies ahead, but also lots of decisions and "lasts". The SK SENIOR COMPANY was created to help you capture your full SENIOR SEASON. Say goodbye to one evening and a few outfits and HELLO to an unmatched SENIOR EXPERIENCE that celebrates you the entire year.
But I have to say- it's turned into so much more than I could have imagined!
What I could not have known when this all began was the way we would become family. From showing up to one another's senior nights to getting lost on the way to the Braves game, laughing while we attempt to learn new painting skills, and doing TikTok's in my living room- this dream has exceeded all expectations.
I am THRILLED to launch the 2023 season of the Studio Kate SENIOR COMPANY ! This is the place I get to stretch my creative muscles and have the MOST fun!

You meet people from around your town and it is so fun to be around all of the girls. I met two of my best friends from this experience!!!
I met two of my best friends from this experience!
I loved having my senior portraits taken by Kate- she welcomed me with open arms and made me feel so comfortable and confident!! My senior pictures are unique and meaningful to me. I will be able to look back on them years down the road and have such good memories of high school. She is so meticulous with her work and makes sure you’re happy with your pictures and yourself at the end of every session!!

JOIN THE SENIOR COMPANY!
I have made so many new friends and I am close to people I would never have thought! Having Kate as your photographer is so fun. And I love all the fun gifts and surprises!!
Caroline Jackson (Rome High School, 2019)
i love my senior portraits because they show my style and who i am so well and of course they’re done so perfectly by Kate! I encourage all seniors to use Studio Kate for their portraits because it’s fun and you can pretty much do anything you want with the pictures and express yourself through them! (and because kate is great )

Do you offer a payment plan?
Are you a senior? Do you love spending time with friends? Well- you're basically perfect for the SENIOR COMPANY! I love being around a variety of people and it will always be my goal to showcase as many personalities, bodies, and smiles as possible in the SK Senior Company.
Oh! And you must love surprises and gifts! Liking donuts doesn't hurt either!
What qualifies you as an SK SENIOR COMPANY member?
The Senior Session is one day, 4 outfits, an ordering appointment and a hug as you walk out the door.
The Senior Company includes a Senior Session along with additional group sessions throughout the year, an individual headshot session, VIP booking (and pricing!) at Prom and Homecoming, and a Cap + Gown CELEBRATION session at the end of the year! And a whole lot of fun in between.
So it's really up to you-
one fun-filled day of royal treatment or an entire year!

HOW MANY company members DO YOU TAKE EACH YEAR?
I want to take everyone- but in order to give the girls on the team the best experience I can't take everyone that applies. I don't have a hard number but base the limit each year on what my calendar will allow.
WHEN CAN I APPLY TO BE on SKCO?
WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE IT TO EVERY SHOOT?
The search for my Senior Company begins the early spring of your junior year. I will make an announcement on social and the current team will also let people know that the search has begun! Be sure to follow @studiokateseniors on Instagram so you will know exactly when to apply.
The shoots are set up to allow members to attend as many as they would like. However, I understand that not everyone will make every shoot. My promise to you is providing at minimum: Welcome Event, 2 styled group shoots, 2 seasonal pop ups + Cap and Gown Celebration. It is your choice to arrange to be available on the days of our shoots.
WHEN DO PHOTO SHOOTS TAKE PLACE?
I try to give a few date options for most shoots and allow the team to vote on which works best. Majority wins!
CAN I BE ON YOUR senior company AND HAVE MY PHOTOS TAKEN BY ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER?
In short, no! By being on the SKCO you agree to use me for your senior photos. You will be a representative of my photography business so it doesn't make sense to have another photographer take your photos!
There are exceptions to this- please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have a specific question about this.
what do you look for in a senior company member?
Character counts and attitude is everything. Physical traits have nothing to do with being part of the SK Senior Co. If you cheer for your friends, support those around you and exude kindness you are my kind of senior!
