Fall of a child’s junior year is the time when parents begin to think about High School Senior portraits. This is often the last formal portrait made of a child before they reach adulthood and sometimes even the last one for many until a wedding portrait.
Wondering What to do for a Senior Portrait?
In the old days senior portraits were mostly either taken after graduation or with the cap and gown—or more formal dress and setting with a serious pose.
These days senior portraits can be quite creative. They can be a good way for the senior to express themselves and show offa bit if they’re in a sport or want to show off other forms of creativity and interests. Though we do some senior portrait in a studio setting many senior prefer the open outdoors—some in an urban setting while others enjoy a park setting. Of course Garden of the Gods seems to be the number one choice for most.
Though we take care of the seniors high school yearbook submission, many schools have hired a photo company to take all the yearbook photos. In those cases the seniors then choose another photographer to do their senior portrait session. Once the yearbook portrait has been taken care of the time constraints for the senior session are much less constricted. This helps as once the senior year begins schedules begin to get crazy. We offer evening and weekend sessions—though this time of year if you desire outdoor settings you need to schedule right after school.
