Take them at a place that is meaningful to you. When you look back on these images, you’ll want to see a part of who you were at the time. Things will change a lot for you after you graduate and as you get older, SO having a photo in a place that’s helped you become who you are now is a plus!
I had my senior portraits taken in a stuffy studio with an older gentleman photographer who was a little old fashioned to say the least… If I could do it again, I’d find a photographer that could come to me and I’d go to the creek by my childhood home. It’s where I’d go when I needed to think, I’d put my feet in the water and dream of all the places I’d go once I graduated. Now, that place has been developed, the fields where horses used to play are now filled with pavement and cookie cutter houses. If I could have a photo of me in that place, like it was then, it’d be a true treasure!
So think big! Don’t be afraid to go somewhere fun or unique, there’s beauty everywhere! Some ideas: A bowling alley, the library, the mountains, a wildflower field, a greenhouse, your backyard, your room, murals, downtown, a record store, a coffee shop, a lake, a garden, a boutique store.
Check out some of my favorite past locations below and let your imagination run wild… 🙂
I hope this has sparked your imagination and has you thinking out of the box when it comes to your senior portrait session!
