One of the most common questions I get from people is "When should I do my child's senior portraits?"
Here's the thing... teenagers can change a LOT in a matter of months. I have actually had to shoot a senior in June AFTER already taking her photos the previous August because she had changed so much.
If you like fall colors, lots of layers and that "look" then I would suggest September - November of senior year. If you prefer a more fresh, summery look then I would say March - May.
There is no "correct" answer... it all depends what look you're going for!
This is really a matter of preference. Usually there are two choices - green or urban.
I like them both equally. Two very different "looks" but both produce gorgeous senior portraits!
I usually suggest urban for guys - unless they are very outdoorsy and want to showcase that!
For the ladies, I do love outdoors. Urban is also very cool.
A good photographer will give you choices and guidance. Make sure your photographer is familiar with senior photography and has a style that aligns with the look you are going for. All photographers are different and have different strengths and weaknesses. The session should be stress-free and fun!
