Senior Photos

Meet Jacob. He chose us to be his photographer for his senior portraits. He had a few ideas for his photo session, but wanted us to come up with the rest. He is an avid reader so we wanted to incorporate that into some photos. He loves Harry Potter books. He also loves the beach, so we new that we would photograph on location for some of his senior portrait session.

Senior Photo Ideas

Coming up with great photo ideas for any portrait session is important. Senior photos are really important. Having ideas for your photo shoot is critical. As a photographer it is our job to discuss with you your hobbies and interests. We will then come up with suggestions and locations.

We also are responsible for correctly posing our clients. It is always interesting to me when my clients are nervous because they are sure how to pose! Well the good news is that isn’t their job, that is our job as a photographer.

Senior portrait time is such an important time in a high school senior’s life. It is their last year of school. It’s the year they start focusing on college admissions and let’s face it, they are under a lot of peer pressure. Our seniors trust us and leave it up to us to make them look good.

On Location Photography

When selection a location we look at many details. We look at backgrounds, textures, colors and most importantly light! You can choose a gorgeous location to be photographed at, but if the light is not right, the result becomes less then desirable. If you are a photographer and are struggling with finding or creating great light. We can help!

A great example of good light/bad light is the beach. Gorgeous we all know at all times of the day. Gorgeous on camera, only during the sweet light time or golden hour.

Golden hour takes place about 1 hour prior to sunset.


Choosing your Senior Portrait Photographer

If it is time for your senior portraits or any type of portrait session, chose your photographer wisely. Make sure you see a full portfolio. Also, make sure that you are their interest and achieving your vision is their goal. When you feel confident and comfortable with your photographer that will result in great portraits!
