Stanley Harper is California’s Central Valley senior portrait specialist.   Based in Visalia, the focus of a senior portrait session is to create a once in a lifetime experience that will capture the memories of who the senior is, where they have been and where they are going.

The senior portrait experience by Stanley Harper is custom design for each senior.  From the initial consultation to the final order, the senior portrait experience is designed to give each senior portrait client a one in a lifetime experience.  From locations to the images to the wall art and print keepsakes, the senior portrait experience is our pride and joy.



Each and everyone of you are unique!  There are many things that make you unique.  The clothes you wear, the car you drive, the sports you play, the subjects that interest you, the hobbies you indulge in and many other things.

Your senior portrait session should reflect all of those unique characteristics and everything that makes up who you are.

My goal for your senior portrait photography session is to use my talent and experience to capture that uniqueness.


Our babies have turned into teenagers and now they are getting ready to take on the adult world!   Where has the time gone?

Before they head out into the world, let’s chat about spending a few hours together to create some special portraits of your graduating senior.  

After the senior portrait session, we will get together once again so we can work together to design a print product order.  Need graduation announcements?  We can do that.  Need prints for family?  We can do that.  Want a piece of wall art to hang so when your senior leaves, they don’t really leave?  We can do that.



Just like the senior is an individual, the senior portrait experience is designed towards the personality, hobbies, and activities of the senior.

The first thing we will do is have a senior portrait consultation.  This is where we me and get to know each other.   If you have ideas on what you want for your senior portrait experience, this is the time to bring them to the table.  Do you want to have a special portrait session on the shores of the Pacific?  Or perhaps you want to travel up into Yosemite or the mountains?  Are you a car guy or horse woman?  Are you all about sports?  We put these down on paper and come up with a session, or sessions for YOU!

Approximately 2 weeks after the portrait session, we will schedule an in person reveal session.  This is where the senior, the parents and myself meet and present a slideshow from the senior portrait experience.  The reveal session also doubles as an ordering session and this is where you can pick the package or print products from the à la carte menu.

A sportrait is what it sounds like, a sports themed portrait. What better way to cap off a senior portrait session than with a sportrait? There is no limit to what we can create with a dedicated sportrait session. Are you a football player? We can hit the football field. Are dirt bikes are special part of your life? Let’s hit the motocross track. Cap it off with a top of the line sportrait composite image. I take several shots from the sportrait session and create one image that pays homage to the senior and their chosen sport. Multiple sports can also be showcased. Sportrait sessions are also available as a stand alone photography session.
