hello, gorgeous!

Your year is finally here! One of the most exciting events in your senior year is your senior photo session.  Let's plan something fun!

My name is Alina and I am the owner and photographer of Sparkling Bay Photography. My photography has been described as distinct in style with a soft, airy look and a modern vibe.  No senior is the same and every session is unique. Whether you are looking for an urban, beachy or nature-inspired look, your finished images will be uniquely yours.

Sparkling Bay Photography specializes in seniors exclusively. That means that we are always searching the latest and the greatest in trends so that we can give you the BEST photography experience that is CLASSIC and MODERN.

Our photography philosophy is that great portraits are the result of collaboration between the photographer and her subject. In my sessions, I photograph a combination of spontaneous, "candid" photos and posed ones. During the shoot, I provide direction for both, so you will never have to worry about what to do next. 

There are many questions that come up relative to your senior session. How do you prepare? What should you wear? Should you invest in professional makeup? Should you bring props? If yes, then what props look good on camera? What about your favorite puppy - would it be appropriate to bring her along?

No worries! After photographing hundreds of local seniors, we have experience in just about anything and will happily guide you along before, during, and after your senior session. In fact, we offer our clients our SENIOR Magazine that has tons of helpful information about your senior photos.

The Setting


choosing the Location

urban

FOR THE CITY CHICK

You are in luck! Houston is the fourth largest city in the US and we will not have trouble at all finding a great urban location in downtown Houston. Interesting backdrops and props include skyscrapers, cafes, squares and even Houston B-cycle (look that one up!).

 

nature

FOR THE NATURE LOVER

If a natural, greenery-filled environment is more along your alley, Clear Lake, League City and Houston are full of green, both rustic and well-manicured, parks. Meandering walking paths, boardwalks and cozy benches offer great settings for senior photos.

beach

FOR THE BEACH BABE

How lucky are we to live only a short drive from the beach! Galveston beaches are great for pictures (not to mention the possibility of combining that with the quaint setting of the Strand), but did you know that it is possible to find open water backdrops right here in Seabrook?
