Your Senior Pictures Are A Big Deal!

It's Your Day to Shine!

If you are looking for an amazing fun-filled high school senior portrait experience with the best senior pictures, satisfaction guaranteed, then you have come to the right place. We are obsessed with creating the best portraits while providing an unforgettable experience. We are driven to excellence in everything we do.

In 2005, my husband, Jim, and I had a vision to bring fashion-inspired cutting-edge senior pictures to Kentucky. We succeeded and created the prestige brand we are today. Your senior portraits are the most important photographs you'll ever have taken. We believe every senior deserves a professional photographer to document the most exciting time in their life. Your senior pictures are how your friends will always remember you ....and your parents will display them on their wall forever.... you'll see them each time you come to visit.

Trust us... you don't want to put the most important pictures of your life in the hands of a neighbor, friend or mom with a camera. Would you let someone cut your hair because they have nice scissors? We are professionally trained photographers with all the latest props, sets, fashion ideas and equipment. We know how to use our professional lighting to flatter you and enhance your eyes. And we're experts at posing all body types so YOU look your BEST. We specialize in senior portraits and are dedicated to providing our clients with portraiture beyond their expectations. Your finished portraits will have beautiful rich skin tones that have been retouched to perfection; not off color and blemished.

Let us create something beautiful for your home.

This is your once-in-a lifetime chance to feel like a model for the day. Boys, we promise...even you will have FUN. Camera shy? Not a problem -- we routinely produce amazing images for even the most reserved seniors.

Our state-of-the-art modern digital boutique studio is located in Georgetown Kentucky, but we photograph seniors from all over the state. We even have seniors who travel from out of state to get our unique look and senior photography experience. We love them for making the extra effort. We make our senior pictures fun to bring out the real you! Let us help you unleash your inner rock star or be the next top model. Don't worry, you don't need to look like a model. It's our job to bring that out in you.

Spend some time on here seeing what we have to offer and be sure to check out our Facebook page for our most recent stuff. We hope what you read and see resonates with you as Jim, Michael and I would love to be your senior photographers.

My Story Documentary Videos

New this year is our "My Story" documentary videos which documents the senior at this time in their life. It is a small vignette of the senior's life. Checkout this heartwarming story of Aida.

Melissa and Jim wish they had a video like that of themselves when they were seniors. If you are a parent, what would it mean to you, your children and grandchildren if you had a video like this of you when you were a senior?

We are only able to offer a limited number of "My Story" videos this year. If this is something you are interested in, please call today so we can reserve a My Story slot for you.

Ten Reasons To Choose James Cook Photography
  1. Not everyone gets the same photos. Each custom tailored photo session is based on the personality and style of the senior. So, no two shoots are the exact same.
  2. We specialize in photographing seniors. We are not jack of all trades, masters of none. We do not photograph buildings, horses, landscapes, sports or pets (unless they are accompanied by a senior). We photograph seniors and we do it the best.
  3. We are experts at posing all body types. We only shoot flattering poses that translate into stunning pictures.
  4. No retouching fees! We retouch all photographs to bring the real beauty in everyone.
  5. Because we only photograph a limited number of seniors each year, we can provide a senior photography experience that is second to none. Unlike cookie cutter studios that will treat you like a number, we treat you like a friend and it shows in your pictures.
  6. Get the latest style in senior photography. We are leaders and stay current with all the recent senior trends, latest posing styles, and cutting edge techniques by attending seminars across the country. We reinvent ourselves every year to stay current. Current not only with photography, but with the products and services we provide.
  7. We use the best professional grade Canon cameras and lenses that Canon has to offer. This is not the kind of stuff you can purchase at Best Buy. You would think that all professional photographers would shoot with high quality equipment, but they don't.
  8. We are not new at this. We have a proven track record of producing amazing senior pictures.
  9. You are only a senior once and you deserve the best! Do not regret choosing an average photographer for your senior photography 20 years from now. Avoid disappointment.
  10. We get pictures that not only the senior loves, but the parents love too!
  11. Our artistically mastered personalized wall canvases are stunning and certain to be a conversational centerpiece for any home. With our state of the art pre-visualization software, you can see what the wall art will look like in your own home to make the purchase decision easy. Technology at its best!
Ok, that was 11. Couldn't stop at just 10.
