For many high school seniors, getting their senior photos taken is an exciting time. These treasured photos will be used in their senior yearbook and given to friends, family, and teachers as they move on from their high school years into the next stages of life. Getting ready for senior pictures can be a little stressful for both the teen and parent. Between planning what to wear and what to bring, it’s understandable! That’s why I put together this senior photos checklist to ensure seniors and their families arrive at their session prepared and confident for a great experience, and of course, to walk away with beautiful photos. #1. Bring Water and a Snack My first piece of advice is to bring water and some snacks. It may not seem like tough work, but posing, wardrobe changes, weather, and even moving around the photoshoot location can wear on seniors during their session. Not only is water refreshing, but it’s also great for your skin and keeps seniors comfortable during their photoshoots. As for snacks, I recommend eating well beforehand to last you through the entirety of the photoshoot. If you’re in a rush, please bring a snack to get you […]
There are 4 reasons why High School Senior Portraits are important. Of course, there are more, but here are the most common reasons customers value senior portraits. #1-This time marks the end of their childhood…adult, WHAT?? I know it. We don’t want to let go and often times find ourselves in denial. It’s true. We need to let go and let them flourish and become the person they are intended to be. It’s time for them to explore, find themselves, discover new passions, and become an adult. With that, let’s capture who they are today and be proud of how far they have come. Let’s take time to reflect on their growth, challenges, and memories. #2-Graduation Requirements-Let us ease the load! All high schools require a yearbook picture. Each school has specific requirements in terms of what is accepted, proper file sizes, submission, etc. Don’t worry, we take care of all of this for you! One less thing for you to deal with. Don’t forget announcements! The school often provides announcements for you to purchase. They’re very generic, but they do include the graduation details to send out to family and friends. We’d rather provide you with announcements that are […]

Yes, my son Trey is a senior this year! After years of photographing high school seniors, I now understand the wide range of emotions involved for the student and the parent. The time goes so fast and it brings tears of sadness and joy. I couldn’t be more proud of this young man and I know he will accomplish great things in this world. Not only will Trey be completing his high school days from Pine Creek High School, but this is the last year of competitive soccer. He’s been playing since he was five years old, and it has brought great joy to this young man. His club and high school team have set new records and has had great success. However, nothing compares to the relationships he has built during this time.
