The AKP Senior Experience

Richmond, VA Senior Portrait Photographer Amber Kay strives to offer you the best senior portrait experience around! Located in downtown RVA Amber Kay serves the greater Richmond area as well as Northern Virginia and all destination locations. Sessions with Amber Kay are unique, fun, and memorable! You'll walk away from your session with a huge smile, wanting to do it again the next day.

The AKP Senior Experience starts with your pre-session consultation in the studio where we get to know each other and chat about locations, wardrobe, hair & makeup, & your style. I work with each client to customize their senior portrait experience to fit them perfectly! Natural? Glam? Fashionista? Girl Next Door? Your session will be as unique as you are.

Your session day starts with professional hair and makeup at the studio to make sure your makeup lasts and that you're looking your very best. Go glam or stay natural...your choice. Once you're camera ready we will head out to start the really fun part! Time to get your model face on & your smile ready. Amber Kay will guide you through effortless posing with lots of laughing, smiles, smizing, twirls, & serious faces. Perhaps a little dancing and cat-walk walking will be included too. 

Two weeks after your session you will come back to the studio for your full gallery reveal and ordering session. Make sure to bring everyone along to see the gorgeous images! Mom, Dad, Grandma, & Grandpa, you name it they're welcome!! At this time Amber Kay will guide you through selecting the right images and products for your needs & desires. See examples of custom designed albums, wall art, graduation announcements, and much more. Your order will be placed at this time and products will be delivered 2-8 weeks following your ordering appointment.

Your senior year is not the time to have a friend take your pictures or take cell phone selfies. Hire a professional with experience and passion! It really makes all the difference.
