How to Include Your Loved Ones in Your Senior Photoshoot

Updated: Feb 13

Make your senior shoot a family affair!

Celebrate this milestone in your life with the people who have been there through it all - your family! Whether you want to include your siblings, parents, grandparents, or even your beloved pets, incorporating your family into your senior photoshoot is an amazing way to capture memories that will last a lifetime. From group shots to individual portraits, a senior shoot is the perfect opportunity to honor your unique family dynamic.

The Benefits of Having Family at Your Senior Shoot

The #1 benefit of having family at your senior shoot is that you can get the whole family in the frame and not have to worry about it at graduation. You will already have all your family photos so you can just enjoy the day and grab candids! Plus, if you decide to include dogs in your senior session, this provides another fun way for everyone to be involved. The best senior photographer is one that is well-versed in getting the perfect shot every time, no matter who or what’s included in the frame. The best senior photographer will also be the one you vibe with the most. ;) After the session, the entire family will look back on these images fondly, thankful for such an incredible experience that everyone was able to be part of together. It’s an opportunity to make lasting memories before everyone moves away for college or other ventures in life, which makes including family (and dogs!) in a San Diego senior photoshoot even more meaningful.

Most importantly, take the photos

Taking the photos is the most important thing, not what you're wearing or where the photos are taken. Including family and pets adds an extra layer of personality to your session. At the end of the day, you'll be happy your have these images to look back on and "remember when".
