hello, gorgeous!

Your senior year is finally here, and with it, your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for senior portraits that show your beauty, confidence and uniqueness. The portraits that create visual memories of your time in high school, the happiness of the new journey ahead, and tell the world who you are!

But how do you make sure that you don’t waste that opportunity and end up with ho-hum pictures, simply because you have not done it before and therefore are not sure what outfits work best, how to pose for compelling, professional looking images (after all, nobody is born a model), what locations make the best backdrop for the look you envision, or what makeup and light are the most flattering for photos?

Not to worry: after photographing hundreds of seniors over the past few years and studying senior photography through specialized workshops and training, there is no detail of a senior photo experience that we have not worked out to perfection. As a photographer who specializes in senior photography exclusively, I will guide you and your parent through every step. No longer will you have to worry about what to do with your hands (I will provide you with direction for both posed and dynamic, candid photos) or whether bringing your favorite puppy will make good pictures (yes, it will, and I will coach you how). There will also be no DIYing it with prints and grad cards (unless that is your passion), as I will offer you professional quality prints, albums, wall art, and graduation announcements.

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.

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?

Choosing THE Photographer


Choosing THE Photographer


CAPTURING YOUR IMPORTANT MILESTONE

Your senior year is full of important decisions. Deciding who will photograph your senior portraits is one of them. When the flurry and excitement of your senior year is over, it’s beautifully captured images that help you revisit the emotion and spirit of the year that passes so quickly. So, how do you choose the best senior photographer for you?

CHOOSE A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO VALUES YOUR DREAMS
I think of you as more than just a shot list. Instead, I invest time getting to know you and your dreams. That makes all the difference. You will be more comfortable in front of my lens, and your images will have the natural, more authentic feel of true keepsakes.

VIEW PORTFOLIO IMAGES FROM AN ENTIRE SESSION
I will capture consistent, quality images throughout your senior session. Details matter. I’m happy to share entire senior galleries with you, so you can assure yourself that the quality you expect consistently shines through in every shot.

CHOOSE A SEASONED PROFESSIONAL
I’m experienced dealing with many different settings. I’m committed to professional and timely response to your needs before and after the session. All hallmarks of a seasoned professional. And all assurances that your senior photos are flawlessly captured.
