The Ariel Perry Senior Portrait Experience:

The Ariel Perry Experience is unique. No one-size-fits-all senior photography here. With my in-depth, personal approach to Senior sessions, you as the client are considered and included every step of the way. From Pre-consultation to curated portraits, *you* are the absolute focus.

Feel like the Queen of the Queen City

Ariel brought my daughter’s vision for her senior pictures to life. Too often, photographers want to do what they usually do. Ariel is willing to step outside of the box, and collaborate in ways that are fun, unusual, and that capture the spirit of the subject. And if you aren’t sure what your vision is, she and her amazing team will help you get there. While she is personable, fun and creative, she is also professional, reliable and timely. I can’t wait to work with her again for my next senior!

...Here’s how it works...

take a peek inside the process 

The first step in my Senior Portrait Experience is an in-person consultation. We’ll sit down together in my Charlotte studio, getting to know each other. With my laid-back style, I know we’ll become fast, comfortable friends. Share with me your goals for your Senior Portrait Experience, and we will accomplish them together.

Let’s get to know each other!


Who hasn’t always wanted a personal stylist? As part of your Senior Portrait Experience, we have partnered with the most stylish boutiques in the Charlotte area. Let NC’s best-dressed work with you on wardrobe choices to elevate your personal look. What could be more fun than a rack full of clothes chosen just for you?

Next, let a professional makeup artist enhance your natural beauty! Our network of NC-based artists features Alyssa of Artistry by Alyssa. Her experience will make sure you pop for your senior portraits. Optional hair styling can turn up the volume even further!

Your personal style, amped up!


Don’t be intimidated. Be empowered! At a senior photo shoot designed just for you, YOU are the star. Every detail of the experience is selected with you in mind, including the perfect Southern location. With a focus on fun and a relaxed energy, you’ll go from coy to confident in front of the lens.

I know you’re excited to see your senior portraits. At the photography ordering session, we’ll sit down together with the top 60 professionally-selected portraits. We’ll work together to choose the absolute best—those portraits that capture your personality and style fully.

Finding your best angles, even though they’re all amazing

These moments are too big for just Instagram. Mark your high school graduation and march into the future with timeless and professional products featuring your portrait. Imagine your parents lovingly looking at your senior albums after you’re off to college. Envision looking back at your own portraits and canvases, seeing how far you’ve already gone. And for the right person, think how powerful your own custom magazine or look-book could be as you go from Senior year to your career. Let the world know who you are, and where you’re headed.
