The Experience

The Ariel Perry Experience is unique. No one-size- fits-all mini sessions 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 finished products, *you* are the absolute focus. 

Ready to be Empowered?

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 the entire Experience is an in-person consultation. We’ll sit down together, getting to know each other. With my laid-back style and eagerness to know who you are, I know we’ll become fast, comfortable friends. Share with me your goals for the 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 the Experience, professional stylist Jekia Benson of Five 13 Studio will work with you on wardrobe choices and set design to elevate your personal look. Packages include either virtual styling, or in-person consultations. 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 artists features Alyssa of Artistry by Alyssa. Her experience will ensure you pop for your portraits. Optional hair styling can turn up the volume even further!

Your personal style, amped up!


Don’t be intimidated. Be empowered! At a photo shoot designed just for you, YOU are the star. 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 the results. At the ordering session, we’ll sit down together with the top 60 professionally-selected images. We’ll work together to choose the absolute best—those 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 graduation and march into the future with timeless and professional products. Imagine your parents lovingly looking at your albums after you’re off to college. Envision looking back at your own prints 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 forward in your career. Let the world know who you are, and where you’re headed.
