This is the most exciting year of high school! Packed full of memories… from pep rallies and senior nights to prom and college visits! You are preparing for a new, beautiful (and maybe a little intimidating) season of life. Big decisions and big life changes that are opening the door to so many beautiful adventures!
We’ve been there… celebrating the ending of one chapter, while opening a new one that’s packed full of action. And we are so excited for you!
As senior photographers, we are here to document this season of your life. We’re all about capturing you, just as you are… genuine laughs, your hobbies + what you love, and most importantly… the beautiful person God created you to be!
What will it cost?
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! And you should feel beautiful during your session! We promise to make you feel confident and comfortable in your skin! We’re here to guide you through the entire session. Before your session, we get to know you better. We help you pick out your outfits and coordinate props. From your favorite music to your hobbies, we will go into your session as friends! And we will even play your favorite songs during the session to help ease nerves and get the groove going!
We have a few tricks up our sleeves to pull out your genuine personality, even if you feel nervous about your photoshoot. From telling jokes to asking you to do some silly prompts, we will get plenty of natural smiles and movement! We aren’t for awkward prom poses. We’re all about pulling out the beautiful person you are!
We pour our whole hearts and souls into capturing you and your senior year. The Now and Then Sisters almost always photograph together which gives you another whole level of photos.
We’re here to make you feel beautiful+handsome, make the process fun, and make printing and sharing your photos easy!
Your Senior Experience Includes:
"These sisters make taking beautiful pictures so easy and fun. There’s never an awkward moment while shooting with these sisters and the amazing group of girls they have brought together. I wouldn’t want to have my senior picture experience with anyone else. I would recommend this amazing sister duo to anyone who wants to leave with not only amazing pictures, but fun memories as well!"
These beautiful sisters captured Allison's personality so perfectly! We will treasure these photos forever. Thanks for freezing these moments in time for us! Can’t recommend these ladies enough for senior photos!
Erika and Kayla are our family photographers, period. They did an incredible job on both of our daughter’s Senior pictures and were able to capture the beauty inside and out of both our girls that we have always seen in them as parents. The entire experience was so enjoyable, with the time and care they took, it made it feel like they had simply become an extension of our family. We’ll never go anywhere else when it comes to capturing the most important family memories in life!
"Now and Then Photography did an amazing job on Hunter’s senior pictures! The pictures were great… it was so hard to pick just one as my favorite!"
Now and Then Photography really knows what they are doing! Senior pictures were SO fun and effortless… and the pictures turned out AMAZING!!!
"We cannot stop looking through our photos! Kayla and Erika did such an incredible job capturing this day for us! From the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for being a part of our day! Hiring these two was one of the best decisions we ever made. They are the sweetest souls. This whole process with them was a testament to their passion and talent for capturing these magical moments. We love them dearly and cannot wait to get in touch with them again to capture the next big moments in our lives!"
"Kayla and Erika are absolutely amazing! These two ladies are the sweetest people you will ever meet. We just got our entire album back from our wedding day, and to say that I am impressed is an absolutely understatement. The photos from our wedding are stunning. They captured every single moment of our day and did so in such a beautiful manner. I could go on and on about how wonderful these two ladies are. The best decision we made for our wedding was to hire Now and Then as our photographers! We love them both so so much!"
"Kayla and Erika were by far the best decision we made while planning our wedding. Their flexibility, kindness, and attention to detail made the entire wedding planning process easier. Being a COVID wedding couple, we experienced a lot of troubles leading up to our big day (which turned into multiple dates). Now and Then Sisters were there with us every step of the way. It was one less thing we had to worry about in a very difficult time of planning, and for that we will always be thankful! We are so in love with all of the beautiful photos that they took and we are so happy that we have these special memories! We LOVE Kayla and Erika and can't wait to continue to use their services as our family grows."
"Kayla and Erika were a joy to work with! They not only captured my wedding day beautifully, but provided seriously superior customer service throughout my wedding planning process. They provided a detailed bridal guide that helped me plan everything from the pictures I wanted them to take to my day of schedule of events. They even sent a date night box to help us de-stress before the wedding! They made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera and were incredibly professional and sweet our entire wedding day. I highly recommend this dynamic sister duo!!"
"I could truly write a book on how much we loved our experience with Kayla and Erika. Every step of planning with them I felt like we were collaborators and they wanted our wedding day and everything that goes along with it to go as smoothly as possible. I have a lot of anxiety around being the center of attention and I hate pictures, but these ladies made the experience so easy for me and even FUN which I definitely did not expect :) Our engagement and wedding photos turned out so completely beautiful and I'm beyond grateful that I found Now and Then on the knot back when I first started wedding planning. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!"
"We could not have been more pleased with N&T. Our wedding photos are amazing, they did such a good job working with our schedule and what photos we wanted. Very professional and personable and we loved how kind and easygoing they were. They provided us with the most comfortable wedding photo experience."
We are all about the candid, genuine moments. Movement and emotion. We love drawing out the beautiful person God created you to be and capturing your personality. We love when our seniors incorporate props or items that matter most to them. We're all about capturing you just as you are during this exciting phase of your life!
We use Canon R6 and a variety of lenses. Since we photograph together during your shoot, you get a variety of photos. We both use very different lenses during your session, which gives a completely different look and feel to the photographs... from wide landscape shots... to up close shots of your adorable freckles or gorgeous eyes.
No way! We will give you some prompts and ask you to do some silly things to draw out those genuine smiles and interactions. We try our best to make your time with us painless and fun, but most importantly... comfortable. We love to play music. It loosens the nerves and creatively pumps us up. We always ask for your favorite songs so you can join in on our bad singing or dance moves. ;)
We offer all our clients a personal styling service. It's super awesome, actually! All you have to do is answer a couple questions based on what vibe you're going for and our styling service will take you to a variety of options. Use it as inspiration as you're rummaging through your closet OR purchase a new wardrobe using the direct shopping links that appear in your search. Not to mention, we LOVE LOVE LOVE coordinating with you as you pick out your wardrobe. So if you have any questions or doubts, shoot us a text and we will be more than happy to help you out.
Your turnaround time will depend on how busy we are at that time, but we promise you will get them as soon as possible! We completely understand how exciting it is to receive your photos! But we take great care in editing your photographs and aim to deliver you the best quality. The editing process is a huge part of our art and style. After your session, we will give you an estimated timeframe. Typically, senior sessions take us about 3 weeks to edit and deliver back to you. We almost always post a sneak peek on social media (because we are just as excited as you)!
All you have to do is contact us using our contact form or shoot us a message on Facebook or Instagram! You will need to sign a contract and pay a $300 deposit to secure your session. We typically take the months of December and January off to recharge and spend time with our family, but we will coordinate with you on a few dates before scheduling your session. We typically photograph senior sessions about two hours before sunset during the weekdays.
We completely understand that photography is an investment, so you're able to break out the remaining balance of your payment into a monthly payment plan. We also offer automatic payments so you have one less thing to worry about!
If you cancel your session, you will forfeit the $300 deposit. If you paid for the remaining session amount, you will be issued a digital credit in that amount to go toward a future session. It’ll be your responsibility to reschedule the session.
Yes! We are willing to travel to surrounding cities. For senior sessions, we travel up to 30 miles outside Peoria, IL before travel expenses apply. Inquire for detailed travel costs if you're looking to book something outside the 30-mile radius.
