Senior portraits ideas for anytime of year
Offering senior portraits ideas is a small piece of what I offer my clients when they reserve and SMP Senior Collection.
Molly graduated from Sycamore High School. Before her session day we bounced around ideas about location, outfits, makeup, and including her cat. I took everything we talked about at her consultation and starting planning from her senior portraits ideas. Down to the last detail to capture her senior story!
Molly is an amazing scholar. She earned college credits while simultaneously finishing high school, making her one busy lady. However, on her, and Mom’s long list for Spring was to squeeze in her senior portraits.
Molly loves the flowers of Spring and we were blessed with lush greenery and lots of pretty floral buds at her Grandmother’s property. If you have a special place that you want to include in your session, share those with me in your list of portrait ideas.
If you love the looks of springtime too, we can talk about all your senior picture ideas + available locations. Illinois Springs are very unpredictable, so I always encourage a LATE SPRING session slot of late April and into May.
Another Senior portrait idea is capturing your field of study.
Molly was finishing up her first two years in nursing so she had the wears already + it was perfect to show the end of one chapter and starting the next! Since nursing has a ‘clinical’ feel I suggested we take those shots in my small studio instead of out in the spring backdrops.
With outdoor photo sessions we are always at the mercy of the weather. But over the years I have shot sessions in all four seasons. If you want to brave the weather I will too. Now the rain…I’m not saying no, just saying we’ll need to get very creative + find cover for me. Actually, cover for my camera, I can dry. My Canon however, she doesn’t like the rain at all.
You just have to know how to plan for the portrait session. And I do!
For Molly we were indoors, her grandmother’s and back at her home to include all the senior portraits ideas she + Mom put on their wish list.
I’m not a magic fairy or anything, but I do to help wishes come true😉
We captured every piece of her senior story!
