When I was in high school (many, many years ago), the only options we had for "senior pictures" was the usual yearbook photos taken by the local Olan Mills studio - three to four backdrops, maybe two outfits, and a stack of wallet-sized prints that we were never going to give away. No real way to make it personal; to let ourselves truly shine.
Thankfully, things are different now.
Senior year is a big deal and it needs to be celebrated, and your photos should reflect that. A really fun way to do that is to incorporate your personal passions into the shoot.
Whether you love to dance, paint, play sports, or anything in between, including these hobbies in your photos will make them truly unique and representative of who you are. Senior portraits are all about capturing your personality and your passions, and what better way to do that than by featuring the things you love most?
Not only will this make your photos more memorable, but it will also make the shoot more fun and comfortable for you. When you're doing something you love, it's so much easier to relax and let your personality shine through - which means you'll have photos that are truly authentic and showcase the real you.
Don't be afraid to get creative with your props and outfits, too! If you're a nature lover, bring along some flowers or incorporate a natural setting into the shoot. If you're a musician, bring your instrument or wear something that represents your favorite genre. The possibilities are endless, and the more unique to you, the better.
Your senior portraits will be something that you and your family will cherish for years to come. They will serve as a reminder of this special time in your life and the person you were at this moment in time. So, why not make them as special and unique as possible?
