Ben was able to capture the perfect shots of our daughter. His photographic eye and amazing ability to think outside of the box are why we chose to travel so far for our portraits.



After your portrait session you will get to view your images for the first time in our theater room — a personalized show projected onto a large screen!  Once the show is complete, we will slowly guide you through the process of selecting your favorite images so we can fulfill your wants & needs – whether it be canvas wraps, custom designed albums and gift portraits to name a few.

Our clients love the ease of making decisions with our advanced ordering software. Not only does the software allow you to compare multiple images in different sizes, croppings and layouts, but it also allows you to see exactly how your images will look in your home — selecting the perfect sizes for your walls couldn’t be easier!  No more guessing what will look best… see them, know you’ll love them and order your portraits with confidence.

We take immense pleasure in creating memories and finished portrait art for you to enjoy for years to come.

Shirk Photography is a cutting edge portrait and design studio that specializes in creating amazing senior portrait art for you to proudly display — portrait art that will become the most talked about pieces in your home…

Instead of pre-set packages that would limit your options, we prefer to allow you to save while getting exactly what you want.  Build your own custom portrait collection by simply selecting the sizes and quantities you would like from each of the following categories: 

11×14 or larger

athletes love our custom montages

6 or more – 4×6, 5×7 & 8×10 – great gifts for family
you’ll love easily being able to look back at your images years down the road
great for friends, scholarships, applications…


Custom portrait collections begin around $3000, however most clients love what we do and choose to invest more in unique senior portrait art that will last a lifetime.  Many clients love the look of our canvas wraps and choose to create wall groupings with multiple wall portraits.  Many select custom designed montages.  It is entirely up to you what art pieces you would like to create from your images and how you would like to display them — just don’t be surprised when you love the images we have created and you end up wanting more than you originally thought!

We could not be more pleased with Shirk Photography! We knew Ben was an amazing photographer, but we had no idea how much fun our daughter Gabrielle and her friends would have during the photo shoot! Nothing was off limits to capture her personality. Our pictures are magazine quality and we will cherish them forever. We absolutely cannot wait to come back with our other children for their senior pictures!
