Choose your senior photographer carefully. Senior portraits are a once in a lifetime event and should only be trusted by someone that knows how to make you look your best. Throughout my 40+ year career, I have mastered lighting, posing and image enhancement to provide you with the best images possible. I pay attention to details in every facet of the process.
J. McBee Senior Portraits are not for everyone. They're for people who want the best.
I am only accepting a limited number of seniors this year. By accepting less, I can focus on the needs of the client. I provide photographic services on location only, using area's in and around St. Joseph to give the greatest variety of images possible.
