You Can these
Take one spunky senior, pair with a friend, parent, sibling, —or any fun person—and a camera phone. Seriously - the phones have great cameras. Portrait Mode will give you the blurred out backgrounds. The hour before sunset has the prettiest light. Or just find some solid shade. Go somewhere pretty, and make sure no one is in your shot. If the sun is filtering through the trees, make sure the sun is behind you. Take a bunch of photos, throw a filter on there and you're set. Just don't over-tune yourself. Plastic skin and unnatural shaping is weird.
Note that most yearbooks require a head-and-shoulders shot and don't allow pets or props.
When you want to Make it Special
Your kiddo is into fashion, theater, super heroes, pin-up, or something. Or you want them to have an experience where they feel special, seen and loved. Or you just want photos that are truly unique to them and their style in this moment of their lives. In that case, you're going to need the flexibility of a studio senior photo session, where we can truly create anything. Imagination is our only limitation here.
Custom senior photo sessions can include outfit styling, pro hair and makeup, custom sets, costumes, backdrops, and more.
Consider having the whole family join us at the end for the last family portrait before they leave the nest.
Senior Year marks a definite change in your kid's life and in your family. If it speaks to you, celebrate it!
If you're somewhere between DIY and what sounds like a big to-do, I have something special for you. Senior mini sessions provide all the polish without the big deal. Consider it a bunch of steps up from awkward school picture day.
