Senior pictures are meant to reflect YOU. Each and every senior we photograph has a different personality, hobbies, interests, and passions. The more of these that you incorporate into your senior session, the more unique your photos will be, and the more you’ll love your photos! You might be wondering what options are available for senior pictures, and we’re here to help you personalize your session. One of the options for senior pictures is choosing how to express your personality in your photos. We can include sports, your car, your instrument, or your pet. We can take them in a rural nature setting, or an urban cityscape. We can even create a completely out-of-the-box, one-of-a-kind green screen image! Take a look at some examples below. These high school seniors wanted to make their photos all about THEM, and they helped us create some amazing images.
Another option for your senior pictures is an indoor versus an outdoor session. We almost ALWAYS do an outdoor photo session for our high school seniors, but we’ve taken some beautiful and fashionable high school senior photos in our studio. These are usually edgy and use dramatic lighting for an editorial look. Usually, if you’d like some indoor studio photos taken, we do one outfit in the studio and another 1 or 2 outfits outdoors with natural light. You can see some examples below of in-studio photos, as well as more natural, outdoor photos.
Here are the in-studio pictures:

The last option we’d like to talk about is natural light versus flash/artificial light. We tend to mix this up, depending on the type of photos and the setting. As you can see above, many of the photos that revolve around sports and hobbies use artificial light for a very striking, dramatic look. We also like to give our clients a couple of flash-lit portraits for a distinctive look. If you lean towards a certain style, tell your photographer! Below, you can see some examples of both kinds of photography.

We hope you enjoyed seeing what options are available for senior pictures. One of our favorite things about senior portraits is that they are always so unique. Every student has a different vision for what they’d like, and this is what makes these images so special!
