Senior Portraits

Family first. 
We are closed for 2021.

There is nothing quite like your senior year of high school. You have been getting ready for this year since kindergarten. Your Mom may not be ready, but I bet you are. You are about to spread your wings and fly! This is one of the reasons that I love capturing who you are at this stage in life. The page is about to turn on this chapter and these photos mark that. I want to capture your style, your favorite outfits, the way you love your hair, the jersey you can’t quite part with, the sports you have loved, the way you laugh, the way you look when you're content…all of it! Senior pictures are designed to be fun, relaxing, and easy! I want to capture you being YOU! Bring your mom, your best friend, your big brother, whoever will make you feel the most relaxed. I promise we will have fun! I consider it an honor that you are considering using Twig & Daisy for your senior portraits.

Let me tell your story.


I love capturing seniors at various Des Moines locations. I have my favorites for sure, but I also would love to hear what you most want your photos to reflect. For some that is a country feel, fields and dirt roads. For others they desire more of an urban setting, bricks and buildings. Some seniors want both, which, thankfully, Des Moines offers within miles of each other. My goal is for your images to reflect who you are, and we can do that anywhere with your smile alone.

Senior pictures can be a stressful experience, but Susan was a pro at helping us through the process! From last-minute outfit advice to an unexpected change of venue, Susan was accommodating and relaxed, resulting in a fantastic experience. She truly captured my Ellen & Joe's personalities which made the pictures feel less “cookie cutter” and more unique. I couldn’t be happier with the results!

Susan's work is phenomenal...always capturing images that I fall in love with and the spirit of each of our family members. She's truly passionate about love and family and you can see that in her photos. You know someone is amazing when you get done with your session and your kids all say "that was so fun!"

I loved the experience working with Susan. She has a relaxed but focus approach to capturing the perfect moment. Her love for photography and people show up in the finished product.

Susan has such a good eye for capturing natural moments. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed and offered great suggestions for an end product that we loved.

- Cindy, Mason's Mom

We absolutely loved working with Twig and Daisy! Susan made it so fun and relaxed, totally stress free. She did an amazing job of capturing Maddie's personality and so many of her smiles and expressions. I will truly cherish these photos forever. I would recommend Twig and Daisy time and time again. I can't say enough how wonderful the experience and the photos turned out!

- Amy, Maddie's Mom
