Senior Picture Tips

Your senior photos are special memories that are going to be viewed and displayed for a lifetime. At Portrait Innovations, our goal is to capture genuine smiles, and we want to ensure that you get the best senior portraits possible. Here are some senior portrait photography tips for preparing for your session:

1. Make an Appointment

Probably one of the most important senior photo tips we will suggest is to always make an appointment. While we do accept walk-ins on a limited basis, appointments are highly recommended. This helps to ensure you have the special time you deserve for your senior pictures.

2. Plan Your Time

Most senior portrait sessions take about one to one and a half hours and you want to ensure that you utilize this time to its fullest. Arrive promptly for your appointment time, but not early (and definitely not late). Thinking of poses you would like to do ahead of time will definitely help the photographer in capturing your best side. Once your senior pictures session is over, your same day portraits will be printed on site in minutes, while your specialty gift items will be shipped free.

3. Dress for Your Portrait Session

One of the senior photo tips that many high school seniors forget is to dress appropriately for your senior portrait session. Come dressed in your favorite outfit, ready for photography, but also be sure to bring an outfit change(s) to add variety to your sitting. Keep your attire simple: solid colors are best, and try to avoid large, bold patterns. For senior photos of you and your friends and family, you may want to coordinate wearing similar colors for group shots.

4. Bring Your Family & Friends

That brings us to the last of our senior photo tips, which is to bring your friends and family to your senior portrait session. There are never any sitting fees or additional charges, so everyone in the family should plan to be in the session, this includes grandparents, cousins, parents, other relatives and friends. You could even get your high school clubs, groups and teams to come for even more one-of-a-kind portraits.
