Unlike some photographers, I offer my senior portrait sessions throughout the year. Parents often ask when the best time is to have them done, and my answer is always: whenever it’s most convenient for you and your child. For some, this means the summer after their junior year and for others it means a few months before graduation.
I do recommend that you give yourself at least a month, closer to two before graduation so that you can send out announcements with the pictures we take. Senior portrait pictures are also ideal for graduation invitations. If you need the pictures for your school’s yearbook, you’d of course want to take that into consideration, as well.
For my senior girl’s portrait sessions, I often work with you to select the best outfits, accessories, props and locations to create a cohesive look. I shoot on location and have a nice array of pre-scouted locations to choose from. I’m also open to shooting at new places, so definitely share your suggestions.
