First thing first, if you’re a Belleville East or West senior – we ARE yearbook approved.

With that out of the way, with us there is no need to travel to exotic locations or spend your parents’ life savings on portraits – you can impress everyone with fabulous photography – Belleville is absolutely loaded with tons of great spots for your senior portraits, there’s something for everyone. Don’t care for this area? We’re willing to travel!

Most of Dinan Photo’s senior portraits take place in downtown Belleville, area parks or other locations of your choosing. We’re always open to suggestions, after all, these photographs are about you!

Studio portraits are available, should you opt for that, in my convenient downtown Belleville location.

Senior Portraits


I will not make you lean on a wagon wheel (unless you like wagon wheels) and you can change your clothes as much as you’d like. You’ll have fun too, really!

My senior portraits will reflect YOU, not some cheesy or rushed generic vision.

Your senior pictures are as important to me as they are to you – not only do I enjoy photography – I truly enjoy the process of getting to know you as we work together. For that reason I will not schedule back to back photography sessions and rush you out the door – relax, have fun and enjoy!

Because I specialize in custom photography I recommend booking your senior pictures well in advance, as Dinan Photo books months out! It’s extremely unlikely you will be able to book last minute – so plan ahead if you want the best photographer in Belleville! đŸ˜‰

All sessions include retouching at absolutely no additional charge, don’t sweat the small stuff – you’ll look your very best!

Seniors pictures are usually taken on-location in the Belleville, IL area. There are a wide range of possibilities, including in-home photography sessions. I particularly love downtown Belleville and The Shrine for senior pictures, both offer a vast array of scenery to work with.

My most popular time of year for seniors pictures is the fall/holiday season, so be sure to reserve your spot early!

My sessions are easy – no tricky pricing, no time or outfit limitations and online galleries for ordering low pressure style and for sharing.

I see lots of seniors for portraits – included in our gallery are graduates from all local schools, including BTHS West and East, Mascoutah, Althoff, Governor French, O’Fallon & Wesclin seniors.

That’s why I differ from other photographers – I’m up to the challenge, no time constraints on your portrait session, a sense of humor, patience and the ability to roll -I’m able to fully capture and celebrate your personality. No matter how off the wall you may be (I am too!)!
