Top Tips: Planning Your Ultimate Senior Photo Session

Updated: Feb 12

It took some planning but we made it happen! We picked our dates and navigated the rain but we did it! I love that this young lady flew from Washington for her senior photo session with me! What an honor! What I want you to know is that your high school senior photos are a great way to capture the memories of your high school years. Taking senior photos is not only a fun experience, but it is also an important milestone in your life. I will work with you to make sure that these memories are captured in the best way possible.

There are many things I prep my clients on before were meet but the following are some top tips you don't want to miss. Here are 3 tips for planning your senior photo session.

  1. Plan your photos a bit in advance of your graduation month. Why? Because high school senior photos are not only a great way to show off your personality and style, but they can be used for your yearbook dedication pages and your graduation announcements. With the help of a professional photographer, you can make sure that these photos turn out beautiful and timeless.

  2. Location. Choose a place that reflects your personality. Check in with your photographer in advance so that you can choose the best time of year for that space. For example, maybe flowers bloom a month later than you were originally going to take photos so this would be a good reason to wait.

  3. Plan one or two outfits that you can move and feel confident in. I always mention to my clients that bringing anything that's been a part of your high school experience, like a football or tennis racket, is a great idea. It adds some fun and personality to your gallery.

Senior photos are not just about looking good on camera; they are also about capturing the unique individual that you have become during those years. Let me work with you to capture all of these special moments and create beautiful photographs that you will cherish for years to come.
