We always have the best time during our Senior Portrait sessions, so we’re really excited for the spring senior season. Sure, the kids all ready had a session with their school photographer, but we find that those sessions don’t really show off their unique personalities, or reflect any of their interests. So, while some people are perfectly happy with the cookie cutter “fake tux for the guys & velvet drape for the girls” followed by a cap and gown shot that the school photographer provides, we hear over and over from both parents how they want to do a senior portrait that really reflects who they are at this point in their lives. We’re parents ourselves, and our son is in fact a senior this year – so we really understand how important it is to capture this pivotal moment. And, since we have a teen, we also understand that they definitely do not want any dorky photos going out with the graduation announcements!
Tips for a great Senior Portrait session!
– Location, location, location! This session is all about you so let’s think outside the studio box and shoot somewhere that is meaningful to you. Bonus points – most people are much less nervous in front of the camera when they’re in a familiar space, making your pics look that much better!
– Accessorize! Do you have a signature hat? Or sunglasses you NEVER take off? We love your style, so bring them to the shoot!
– Share your passion! Senior portraits are supposed to be fun, so think of your photos as a way to express what you love doing. If you’re a musician, bring your instrument. If you’re an athlete, let’s shoot out on the field. Love to dance? We’re totally getting you to dance for some of your shots! Whatever your passion is, share it with us to completely personalize your photos.
