Appleton North high school
I love working with Seniors in Door County, especially in Sister Bay! There are so many unique and fun locations to explore.
I travel to Door County often for sessions and would love to capture images of you in all your favorite places! Haven't been there before? No worries, I know all the gorgeous spots!
Xavier High School
Rosanna in Appleton
I can't explain enough how much I love working with Seniors. To see their faces light up with excitement after they've seen their images melts my heart.
The most magical part, is seeing how much confidence each of my Seniors has after their session. Rosanna was absolutely glowing!! And she was radiating with confidence!
Oshkosh North high school
Owen in Oshkosh
Senior sessions with the guys are a blast! I enjoy working with guys to create photos that not only mom loves, but they do too.
Owen started off a little shy at first, but he warmed up to me quickly. And we were having so much fun during his session! I think it's important that guys enjoy themselves too!
Your Senior photo session only happens once, and I am here to make sure that it's a memorable experience! I take the time to meet with each of my Seniors before their session to get to know them and talk about ways we can make their session uniquely theirs. A big part of my process is making sure Seniors feel comfortable being themselves so that the real smiles and personalities appear during their session. I primarily hold all of my sessions outdoors to create a natural look and feel to my photos. And love capturing portraits at sunset to get that golden glow!
As your Green Bay Senior Photographer, I like to keep my sessions fun, super relaxed and memorable, and will have your Senior leaving with nothing but smiles and confidence. I want all of my Seniors to be able to look back on their photos years from now and still love their images because they truly represent who they are.
THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE SENIOR PORTRAIT SESSION EXPERIENCE
This whole process begins with us chatting and you spilling all the deets of your dream Senior Session. I honestly want to provide all of my Seniors with the best experience possible and so I want to discuss everything.
What high school does your Senior your attend? What are their passions? Do they participate in any school activities? What is their style like?
Send me an email right away and lets get this adventure started.
1. let's have a quick chat via email
2. Let's get you on the calendar!
As soon as you are able, let's put your session in my calendar. I highly recommend selecting a date sooner than later, as sessions tend to fill up quickly the closer we get to peak season.
Once a date is selected, we'll make everything official with a contract and retainer. I like to keep things super simple and easy. Less is more in my book.
Next, I'll meet you and your Senior for a cup of coffee at one of my favorite local coffee shops. If need be, we can also meet virtually for coffee (I can be flexible).
This part is important because it really gives me insight about who your Senior is. Are they shy, outgoing, bubbly? This will help me plan ahead to our session to make sure I can provide a personable experience.
We'll also go over location ideas, outfits, and you can show me your Pinterest board too.
3. You + me + Coffee
Our session will be nothing short of fun! You can tag along for the ride and laughs too during your Senior's photo session.
We'll escape to the perfect location, maybe their favorite hangout spot, a family vacation home, the lake, or anywhere in-between. I'll guide your Senior through the entire session ensuring that they're not only comfortable, but having a blast too!
4. Let's have some fun
After your session, you'll have access to an online gallery to view your images. This is honestly one of my favorite parts because I love hearing how clients feel after seeing their photos for the first time.
After viewing your gallery you will be able to choose your favorite images to keep. And if you're anything like me and can't make a decision because you just love them all, you will be able to purchase additional photos, your entire gallery and artwork collections from your session.
5. your dream portraits delivered
Senior portraits from only $600
A non-refundable retainer secures your date on my calendar. That day is saved only for you! The retainer covers my time and talent during your session and also includes a consult, planning, choosing a location, etc.
After we capture your gorgeous senior portraits, you'll have access to a digital proof gallery. Next, you'll choose a digital image collection based upon your favorite images, ensuring you get all your favorites! You'll also be able to order stunning artwork from the digital collection you choose.

Ashley is such an amazing photographer who makes you feel for comfortable in front of the camera, she notices when you’re lacking confidence and has the ability to pick you up at any moment. Prior to booking with Ashley I reached out to other photographers and no one besides Ashley seemed like they wanted to build a connection and truly get to know me and capture who I am in pictures. It felt like she wanted to make this more than just taking photos because it’s a tradition which is something that I personally loved. I would recommend Ashley to anyone who asks because she makes anyone and everyone feel included and comfortable.
Green BAy, WI
I wanted something unique for my senior pictures. Door County is my family’s happy place and I was obsessed with the idea of doing my senior pictures there. We found Ashley online and loved her pictures and vibe. She was awesome with communication and constantly in touch with us during the weeks leading up, so we could make this exactly what I wanted. She loved the idea of Door County and was going to be there at the same time. It was meant to be! During the shoot, she was super helpful with poses and getting me out of my comfort zone to get amazing shots. She even got in the water with me waist deep for some of my pictures! It was overall an incredible experience, and the pictures were everything I could have asked for!
Sister Bay, WI
I cannot say enough about our experience with Ashley for Caiden's Senior Pictures. Not only did she capture his unique personality, we had so fun it was hard to get "serious" faces between giggles. And thank you for finding a way to incorporate the samurai sword...smh ;). You clearly were up to the challenge.
Ashley is amazing. She photographed my daughter's senior pictures which are beautiful and better than I could have imagined. I would highly recommend her and plan on hiring her again for family portraits. She had great ideas and helped my daughter choose outfits for her shoot. Truly an enjoyable experience.
Green Bay, WI
You're the best - we are so happy with Lance's pictures! You most definitely "captured" him. He's a young man that doesn't like the spotlight and I figured he would feel a little uncomfortable with all this; I really appreciate your time and patience with his session.
Thank you so much again Ashley! They turned out better than I could have imagined, you truly have a gift and talent! We are so happy with them ALL! I had a hard time picking our favorites out as I felt they were all so great!!
So incredibly friendly and makes you feel comfortable about being yourself during a session.
I highly recommend Ashley Kalbus Photography. She is great to work with. We weren't sure where we wanted my son's senior pictures taken and she found the perfect spot. Pictures are fantastic. I ended up ordering more than I had planned as there are so many good ones. Ashley is friendly, outgoing and easy to work with. I highly recommend her for any of your picture needs.
Door County, WI
The scenery was incredible! Ashley had a lot of fun poses and ideas for the girls to try too. We got the link to the gallery shortly after the session, so we didn't have to wait long! I think it's important for teen girls to see themselves as beautiful, the way us parents see them. When the girls saw their photos and got so many compliments from their friends, it was a HUGE confidence boost for them. If you're ever looking for a senior photographer in Oshkosh, Ashley Kalbus Photography is your girl!
Fill in as many details as you can below and let's start planning your session! I'm anxiously waiting to hear from you and can't wait to meet!
