SALISHA BLACKBURN
The artist behind the lens

I’ve been a hopeless romantic my whole life, I just swoon over romantic details like the soft light at the beginning of the day, blades of grass as they move in the wind, and the way you gently remove strands of hair from your eyes; it’s these details that I aim to highlight, not brush over, I see them all. 

 

I’ve spent the past decade and a half honing in my skills as a portrait photographer, capturing life, love and everything in between. I studied photography extensively during my time in college, and I’ve interned for some of the greatest photographers of our generation. During that time, stories like yours have inspired me to continue in this work. 

 

In my pursuit to create images that will hold great meaning, my eyes are ever-searching for the fleeting moments that others often miss, and to obtain that I aim to make you feel as comfortable in front of the camera as you are sipping coffee in your favorite cozy arm chair. So sit back and relax, I promise to be just as committed to your experience as I am to my art.

TESTIMONIALS

WHERE WILL I TAKE MY PHOTOS?

I am proud to offer my clients a list of great locations for senior photos. Organized into zones based on proximity to your area, we’ll be able to walk through various locations to choose the perfect backdrop for your senior portrait session.

 

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TO WEAR?

Well before your senior photo shoot, I always send the Storybook Photography Senior Style Guide to help you better prepare for your session. In the guide, you’ll learn all about what looks good on camera, how to incorporate variety into your wardrobe, and which accessories take your shoot from sweet to stunning. I even have an additional list of What NOT to wear, so you know what choices to steer clear of!

 

DO I RECEIVE HAIR & MAKEUP SERVICES WHEN BOOKING?

Full hair and makeup is strongly suggested for your photo shoot. You can absolutely add-on hair and makeup services by my talented team as a part of your booking, or book a stylist of your choosing.

 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO TAKE MY SENIOR PHOTOS?

Great question! Ideally, you should be taking your senior photos the summer before or the autumn of your senior year. If you prefer to take them in the Spring, you should be booking your shoot for no later than April to leave time for post-processing and product turnaround before graduation. Spring spots fill up quickly. Please book below as soon as possible if you hope to secure one of these spots. Trust me, booking your shoot for Summer or Autumn is the way to go, if you can swing it! 

 

DO YOU WORK WITH MALE SENIORS?

Of course! The senior guys I work with also receive a style guide; hair and makeup is optional.
