How To Have Stress Free Senior Pictures | During the Session

Your senior year of high school is filled with school activities, applications, and your senior portraits! If you have never had portraits taken before, the process can be intimidating. “What should I bring?” “What should I wear?” “Where should I take them?” All of these questions are legitimate and necessary. As a senior photographer, I have created a list of tips to help you have stress free senior pictures.

 

BE FLEXIBLE

The session might not go as you planned. You might forget something at home or it might start raining. And I just want you to know: It is okay!! Don’t stress, don’t worry. Work with the photographer to make the most of your session. It may mean trying another day. But, in the end, you will get great images that you are excited about!!

 

ARRIVE EARLY

Arrive 15 minutes early. If your session is to start at 5pm, don’t drive up at 5pm. It will take you time to get ready to start, and it will cut into your session time.

 

LEAVE YOUR PHONE & CAMERA IN THE CAR

Phones and keys are very noticeable in most clothing pockets. In order to get the most out of your session, leave your phone and other items in the car.

 

TALK TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER

If model-type poses make you extremely uncomfortable, tell the photographer. The photographer should have plenty of other poses that suit your personality. I love talking to my clients, so I can get to know them and personalize their experience! Odds are, they want you to talk! So, don’t be afraid to open up!

 

Bonus Tip: AFTER Your Session

 

GIVE A HUG

If you enjoyed your session and working with your photographer, let them know. They love to hear your feedback and build your relationship.
