Diving into AP classes…heading up clubs and other activities…oh yeah, and applying to colleges…with everything else on your plate as your senior year approaches, senior portraits should NOT be another source of stress! At The Camera’s Eye, we make sure that your portrait session is fun and relaxed, and that planning your senior photos is collaborative process!
As a professional photographer, I pride myself on providing a personalized photo session and REALLY knowing my clients! In many cases, I’ve known my seniors for years and have already worked with their families on everything from baby photos to high school dances. In other cases, our senior session is a jumping-off point for the future – engagement shoots, baby sessions, etc…
The first step: I’ll send you a quick questionnaire in the mail, which you can fill out, snap a photo of, and text back to me. This is a good starting point to get the juices flowing, since what I need to know is: Who I am working with? Where can we shoot? Where are you most comfortable? What’s going to showcase your personality? This, however, isn’t the end of the road!
Some of it might seem like the same chit-chatty questions you always get, like “What subject do you like in school?” “What sports do you play?” “Where do you work?” But trust me, we can use this! When we talk about your work schedule, it lets me know when you’re free – but it also tells me a little bit about your personality. Sports and hobbies can add flair to a senior photo session. Some of my favorite senior sessions have involved props, cultural outfits, and settings that seniors brought to ME.
And, not to sound shallow, but how you dress tells me everything I really need to know 🙂 We’ll be using your personal style to craft your senior photo session style, so that you’ll have pictures that show YOU as truly YOU. Check out our senior style board on Pinterest for some ideas of outfits that can work for your senior session!
