Seniors

Q: Don’t I have to have my senior portraits done by my School’s contract photographer?

Q: When should I have my senior photos taken?
A: The summer before your senior year is the “usual” time to take senior photos.  It’s normally the most relaxed time for seniors, however fall pictures can be excellent too!  Most yearbook deadlines are in December if you want to add your photos to a page in the book.

Q: What should I bring with me? 
A: Lots of self-confidence and a willingness to have a great time!  Your portrait sessions are all about you, so bring 3-4 different outfits that show off your personality and style. Solid colors and longer sleeves will help emphasize the face and are less distracting in photos. It’s also important that you are comfortable in your clothes. If you are not comfortable, it will show in your pictures. Girls – feel free to wear heels, but make sure you also bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes. Also bring any pets / props / instruments that are important to you. WHAT TO WEAR ON PINTEREST
