When spring arrives there tends to be an influx of senior, graduation, cap and gown shoots. I really enjoy photographing seniors because they are usually down for a more creative type of shoot and they are just fun to be around! I have been doing a lot of senior sessions lately and I’d like to give some ideas, tips or suggestions regarding your senior session.
Things to consider when the time comes for your senior portrait session:
What are your interests or hobbies? Would you like to incorporate them into your photos?
If you do have interests or hobbies you’d like to incorporate then you must be prepared to gather items such as clothing, accessories, and/or sports equipment. This can be a great idea and if you choose to bring props then they will definitely add to your photos and tell a story about who you are. You can even get some shots to show what career path or higher education path you’re advancing to. Going into the military? Bring a shirt or hat representing whichever branch. Are you going to a certain college or university? Bring a shirt or memorabilia pertaining to the particular school you will be attending.
What type of location are you interested in? Do you simply like a field with views, downtown setting, or even your high school can be a great location for your senior photos, especially if you would like to incorporate a sport in your session.
Tell your photographer a specific style of photos you’re looking for. You’re the boss here, don’t be afraid to ask for a specific image or theme.
I offer a few different styled shoots, specifically for ladies. Those shoots have some added props and are focused around a certain theme. Feel free to check them out here on my website under the Sessions tab.
