Finally!  I am so happy that you are here! You've worked really hard and you deserve a stellar senior portrait experience. 


Here at Penny Claire, I don't believe in awkward seniors or seniors who are "bad in pictures."  Nonsense.  Come as you are, and I'll prove to you that everyone is photogenic.

Behind the scenes

the photographer


Senior year is a HUGE milestone with a LOT going on! We won't leave you to figure it out on your own.  Let us walk you through, share our knowledge, plan with you, and allow you to enjoy this time because its been well earned!


Session Prep Help


If the thought of curating the perfect senior wardrobe and figuring out where to be photographed sounds a bit overwhelming, trust me, you are far from alone.  For this reason we now offer our clients the opportunity to participate in a meet with us where we can review outfits, discuss possible add-ons, and create a plan of what your session will look like. 


Posing that's natural


No awkward poses here.  My posing style is less about posing and more about making slight adjustments to how you naturally be.  Throughout the photo session we will also incorporate techniques I've acquired over the years that will help us capture some of the more candid moments and movement that look good on camera while staying true to you.


Real skin texture


You are not plastic and I have no intention of making you that way. I edit my images by hand, meaning I take the time to zoom in, take care of unwanted blemishes and stray hairs, and then I turn focus on cleaning up the overall image. That's it! No one should ever be unrecognizable in their photos.

"I know that in the future when I look at my senior pictures, I will remember the whole experience and how much fun it was working with her!!" 

Our TOP 3 Q/A

Q:  Where will I be photographed?

A: We are an on-location photography company so your session plan will consist of outdoor locations within Zanesville and Nashport OH that most align with your likes preferences, and wardrobe selections.  We have a variety of sceneries we photograph at, but let us know if you have a specific location in mind. 

Q:  Will you help me with posing?

A: Of course!  I will pose you head to toe, while magically looking completely natural as though I just happen to catch you in the perfect position and snapped a picture. In other words, you are in good hands!

Q:  How soon do I need to book?

A: We recommend scheduling your senior photos at leave 3-4 months a head of time.  Not only is this a good time for snagging the date you want before it's gone, but this isn't something you want to rush.  You'll want to allow yourself plenty of time to review the prep material, select and shop for outfits, and ensure you'll have everything you need on the big day

Hey! I'm Penny! I'm so excited you've come to check out what Penny Claire Photography is all about.  Senior sessions typically end with me completely filthy because I've kneeled in damp grass, sat in mud, walked through burs, and rolled all over the ground to get the perfect shots.  And you know what? It's totally worth it because my seniors tell me they had a great time and feel completely comfortable during their session.
