Mindseye Studio has always celebrated those who think for themselves and choose their own path.

Our Senior Experience has always been about FREEDOM.

Freedom to express your individuality.

Freedom to express your style and personality.

Freedom to tell your story with images that reflect who you are.

In our studio we work with a limited number of seniors each season in order to provide our clients with a completely one-of-a-kind customized storytelling experience.

the SESSIONS

the COUTURE EXPERIENCE

Session Fee | $499

Because your story is your own.

The COUTURE is truly the customized senior portrait experience on the central coast. Your senior photos won’t be like anyone else’s. Our relationship begins a few weeks before your photo shoot at your brainstorming consultation.

We’ll hang out together in our studio as we work together to create the plan for telling your story – everything from the style of images you love, to locations, to hair, makeup, and wardrobe, to your favorite tunes and the things that make you want to wake up each day. We work with you one-on-one to finalize every detail of your session. You’ll have access to the items in our boutique – jewelry, floral crowns, clothing, shoes, and props – you never have to stress about anything. Not quite sure what you want? Don’t worry – that’s what the brainstorming is all about.

On the day of your session, you’ll arrive at the studio with clean, dry hair and no makeup on a freshly moisturized face. You’ll be greeted with a mix of your favorite music and a refreshing beverage as our hair and makeup stylist goes to work.

Your only job is to relax and completely enjoy every moment as we bring your story to life…

 What Our Clients Are Saying 

Wow! My son wanted the untraditional senior portrait and Lynn and Scott more than delivered on his wish. I love these photos! They have brought so much joy to everyone who has seen them. When your son says he wants to be dressed like Hugh Hefner, reading Goosebumps books while sipping apple juice with his cat, go to Mindseye, they are amazing! Thank you Lynn and Scott.

I have used Mindseye Studio for both my children’s senior portrait sessions and each time I was impressed with the time Lynn and Scott took to sit down and listen to what my kids actually wanted. They also offered suggestions about how to make each session unique for my kids. The pricing, images, quality of work was awesome and the kids really enjoyed the experience. They even let my daughter include her pet rat in some of the images as well as the sweet little baby snail she found in the grass while we were shooting. My son wanted his car and his girlfriend in his images and, of course, that was encouraged so he would get exactly what he wanted. Lynn and Scott are very nice people to work with and I recommend using Mindseye Studio for all your important portraits.

To start off, Scott and Lynn both are fantastic people! I wanted an off the edge look and they sure gave it to me. They were so confident with words they made me want to get it done at their studio. Right when I walked into their studio I felt comfortable. They led me through the whole process and were so kind the whole time. They kept me entertained and laughing as well. Both of them are so down to earth and easy to get along with. I recommend them every time you want perfect pictures.  My pictures turned out wonderful all thanks to the crew down at MindsEye Studio. Thank you guys so much!!!!!

Scott, the photographer of Mindseye Studio, was absolutely amazing. He captured the exact ideas we had for my daughter’s senior portraits. We wanted something unique and fanciful; he hit it right on! We would not hesitate to recommend this studio to anybody. They are relaxed, listen to what you want, and capture beautiful images without any feeling of being rushed. The final pictures are stunning and we couldn’t be happier with our choice.

Artist photographer Scott provided my daughter Kristen with shots she requested and they even went on a road trip with her to get the absolute shot she wanted – hanging from a railroad bridge. Unbelievable photography. Her appearance in every photo amazed us! Way to go if you want artistic photography for that special moment in time!

Candice

AGHS, parent

I am so thrilled with my whole experience with Scott and Lynn. The two are both sweet and professional and gave me exactly what I wanted for my senior photos. From the first consultation they made me feel comfortable and special, giving me all the time I needed, and helping me figure out what would be best for my portraits. Though Scott is clearly talented in creative manipulations of pictures, he was also able to give me traditional, portrait style senior photos that I could not be happier with. Overall, I loved all my time with Lynn and Scott. Thank you guys!

AGHS, student

Simply the best!! Insane creativity….patience and a true love of people, mere words can’t describe what you will experience with Lynn and Scott. Mindseye Studio was the first and only choice for my daughter’s senior portraits. Their flyer both intriged and excited us with the very unique photos. Scott and Lynn immediately made us feel welcome and at ease during the consultation appointment. During the actual shoot they were both ultimate professionals and were warm and extremely considerate of my daughter’s comfort. The resulting pictures are everything we wanted and more. Scotts technical ability and imagination is amazing!!! We could not be happier and have proudly shown the images to everyone we know. We will always use Mindseye for our photographic needs. Scott and Lynn are the BEST.

PVHS, parent

You can’t put a price tag on your life’s memories and Lynn & Scott have the power to make your memories come back to life every time you open your photo album.
Their style is distinctive and malleable to any emotion you want caught. They have the magic touch to apply soft warm light, but also the skill and daringness to play with hard shadows and grimy textures for a rough around the edges “photo on fire”.  PS. Lynn makes bomb coffee!

Laura

NHS, student

Your studio went above and beyond what I feel most photographers would do; giving the best personal service and experience for the customer. The hospitality was above and beyond and made the whole process a joy for our family. I will return to Mindseye Studio for any of my photo needs for years to come. I am extremely satisfied!

Whatever you want to do, when it comes to getting astounding results, Scott and Lynn can definitely make it happen! Not only are they super chill people, but their creativity and great attitudes make it seem like anything is possible. My senior photos came out mind blowing and the shoot itself was a great experience. Hair and makeup is no problem since they have professional people come in and do whatever you need. I had a wonderful time and my pictures turned out just how I imagined them. If you’re looking for something edgy and captivating, Mindseye is the place to get it done!
