High School Senior Portrait in Storrs, CT

High School Senior Portraits are one of my favorite kinds of sessions to do. Big life changes come at this time of life- so capturing ‘who you are now’ in photos is important.  I am often asked, “Why schedule my High School Senior Portrait the summer before my senior year?  Why not in the fall or next spring?”  My answer is: Your Senior year is super busy with College applications, school sports, clubs or a job. It is hard to find time after school or even on weekends.  If you work in the summer, the days are long and more relaxed – and it’s fun! I believe in creating a good experience for my clients. Many people hate being photographed because they never liked how they looked in their photos.  Guess what?  It’s our job as pro photographers to make you look look good. Meet Miles. He is a high school senior and soon to be a freshman at UCONN in the fall.  Here are some samples from his High School Senior Portrait below.  First, his headshot in the studio.  I love this one because he looks confident and happy.   Include your pets or favorite things. I strive to […]

Planning Your Senior Portrait Session

Planning Your Senior Portrait Session. So make sure to start planning your senior portrait session at the end of your junior year in high school.  You will have more time to be photographed in the summer when the weather is good and the days long.  OR, like I did with Lexi here, in the fall of your senior year – BUT plan it early, there are only so many weekends in October and the weather is not always good. I ALWAYS make rain dates. Big Changes Ahead. Once a student graduates from High School, everything changes.  It happened with my two sons.  The changes personally and physically are enormous.  In fact, every parent of my high school senior portrait clients say the same thing one year later, “We are so happy we had a senior portrait safari with you, our daughter has grown up so much since then!”    Interview Photographers in you area. Find an experienced photographer and look at their work.  Make a date to chat with them in person well in advance so you can get a session date that works for you.  There are limited weekends for fall portrait dates at the peak of color.  I will shoot […]
