When should I have my senior portraits taken?
The best time to have your senior portraits taken is usually during the summer before your senior year of high school, or early in the fall semester. This will give you plenty of time to choose your favorite photos and order prints or other products before the deadline for submitting yearbook photos or graduation announcements.
It’s also a good idea to check with your school to see if there are any specific guidelines or deadlines for submitting senior portraits. Some schools may have requirements for the size or format of the photos, or a specific deadline for submitting them.
In addition, you should consider scheduling your senior portrait session at a time when you feel comfortable and confident. This might mean waiting until you have a new hairstyle or outfit that you want to show off, or choosing a location that has special meaning to you. Ultimately, the timing of your senior portrait session is up to you, but it’s a good idea to plan ahead and allow plenty of time to get the photos you want..
Should I bring my parents along with me when my pictures are taken?
The decision of whether or not to bring your parents along when your pictures are taken ultimately depends on your personal preference and the specific context of the photoshoot.
If you feel more comfortable and confident having your parents present, then it’s perfectly acceptable to ask them to come along. They may also be able to offer support or assistance during the shoot. However, if you feel like their presence might make you feel self-conscious or inhibited, then it might be better to go alone or with a friend.
What kinds of Senior Portraits Do You Offer?
There are two kinds. Your basic senior picture is called a formal pose. This is the kind of pose required for most yearbooks. It is a head-and-shoulder portrait using traditional lighting and backgrounds and often done in the studio.
Then there are Senior Portaits called casuals or informal pictures. These are the poses where you get to have fun! Usually outdoor with casual outfits. You can get photographs with your best friend, your pet, funky outfits, funny poses, etc…
What should I wear for my senior portraits?
When choosing an outfit for your senior portraits, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. First, you’ll want to wear something that you feel comfortable and confident in, as this will help you look and feel your best in your photos. Second, you’ll want to choose something that is timeless and won’t look outdated in the years to come.
Stick with solid colors or subtle patterns. Bold prints or bright colors can be distracting and take away from the focus of the photo, which is you!
Don’t be afraid to accessorize! Adding a statement necklace, scarf, or hat can add some personality to your photos and help you stand out.
Overall, the most important thing is to wear something that makes you feel good and reflects your personal style. Your senior portraits are a great way to showcase who you are and capture this exciting time in your life, so have fun with it!
What if it rains on the day that I am scheduled for outdoor senior pictures?
Come in and have the indoor portion of your sitting taken unless you are not on a time crunch, then we can reschedule.
What can I do to help make sure my High School Senior Yearbook Photos look good?
Practice posing and facial expressions in front of a mirror before the shoot. This will help you feel more comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
Bring any props or accessories you want to include in the photos, such as hats, scarves, or jewelry.
GIRLS: even if you are not used to wearing makeup, wear it for pictures. Keep it natural. Mascara, lip gloss & foundation are a great basic look. If you have any questions or concerns about makeup or your complexion, see a dermatologist or visit the cosmetics counter at the local department store.
GUYS: shave before your appointment. Don’t panic if you break out before your scheduled time. You can apply some makeup to your skin, or see us for help. I can retouch all of your finished pictures, so it may be best to leave your skin alone.
GUYS & GIRLS: Make sure you are comfortable with your hair – if you get a new hairstyle on picture day and you don’t like it, you won’t like your pictures. You should get your hair cut 1 – 2 weeks prior to your appointment. Get plenty of rest the night before your appointment.
Bring your clothes in on hangers, and make sure they are neat and not wrinkled up.
Finally, be open to the photographer’s suggestions and guidance. They have experience in capturing great shots and may have ideas that you haven’t considered. Trust their expertise and have fun!
I got this HUGE pimple on picture day! Should I still come?
I can retouch most blemishes out of your pictures – so don’t worry at all!
I wear glasses. Is this a problem for pictures?
Wearing glasses is a common issue that many people face when taking pictures. While it can sometimes be a problem, it doesn’t have to ruin your photos. Wearing glasses doesn’t have to be a problem when it comes to taking pictures. By adjusting the angle of your face, using anti-glare coating, choosing the right lighting, using a polarizing filter, and taking multiple shots, we can ensure that you capture the perfect moment without worrying about the glare caused by your glasses.
Will my senior pictures be retouched?
For an extra charge. Simple retouching can cost as little as $10. More involved retouching can cost up to $50
