"We don't remember days, we remember moments." 

Raw. Real. You.

That's what senior Photos should be all about. 

Let's be honest- we love photos of ourselves where we feel like ourselves, am I right? At Makayla Madden Photography, that's what I strive for with every single session.

I believe your senior pictures should tell your story with YOU as the main character. After all, this is your last year of high school and that is worth celebrating and capturing! If you’re looking for traditional studio portraits, nothing out of the ordinary, "just a couple" of pictures, or photos taken at the same 3 popular locations in Boise, then I'm probably not the photographer for you. But if you're looking for a photographer who will spend extra time getting to know you, who's loud & passionate & will encourage you to shake your booty or try some out-of-the-box poses to tell your story in a cinematic, creative, & genuine way, & someone who will also provide you with high quality print products that will last a lifetime, then I’m your gal! Check out details below to see how YOU can join the Makayla Madden Senior Experience this year!

“Our session with Makayla was nothing short of amazing. She got to know my daughter on a personal level, so she could capture who my daughter was and the things that were important to her in her photos. Makayla is one of the warmest, most talented people I have met and we LOVED our time with her. And her photos, wow, I can’t describe how stunning they turned out. The experience we had with Makayla was amazing!”

This part of the process is a must for all my clients. After booking your session, I will send out a welcome packet that goes through more details about the session process and tips as you prepare for your shoot. I’ll also send out a questionnaire before we meet- you’ll have time to come back to it if you need, and this is where I’ll ask for your vulnerability and honesty so we can create a portrait session that captures your soul. We’ll then meet for your consultation at my private studio, where you can tell me even more about yourself, your “why” for your shoot, and I can continue the planning process to make sure your session 100% reflects who you are. This will also be the time for you to see sample products and packages that I offer, so you can start thinking about how you’ll want to display and gift your images when all is said and done!


your session


I'll schedule your hair and makeup, carefully scout out a session location that best exemplifies YOU, help you with outfits and styling, then the day of your session you’ll head to the studio to get started on the pampering process! After hair and makeup, we’ll spend time together jamming to your favorite music as I document your life on camera! Your session will not just be the typical "stand here and smile" photo shoot (though I WILL be very directive, so no worries on your part!) Instead, prepare for lots of laughter and fun, all while watching me duck into ridiculous positions to get that perfect angle. We'll talk, we'll explore, we’ll dance, we’ll make memories, and I'll spend a day in the life of YOU, capturing YOU. 

The experience



After we've finished shooting, I'll go home and 'soft' edit your pictures. 2 weeks after your session we’ll meet for your reveal and you'll get to see all your beautiful moments for the first time (Don’t worry, I keep lots of Kleenex on hand for this portion). This gallery reveal will be your opportunity to choose your favorite images and order your favorite products. I'll bring samples so you can touch and see what you’re ordering, and make sure that it will look amazing in your home. We'll place your order, I'll put the finishing touches on your final images, and your custom artwork will be on its' way!

Within just a few weeks, you will be able to share and gaze at the moments that have stolen your heart and that you have deemed irreplaceable and unforgettable. I'll be here each step of the way to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible, and I hope we can become close friends through it all. 

I am so excited to work with you, 

and that's it!
