Why It’s Not Too Late to Have Your Senior Session!
The reason it’s never too late to have your senior session is because of this beautiful session below! Anna graduates in 2 weeks from J.H. Rose High School. Her session was held just a week ago in mid-May (yes, a month before her graduation!) She decided she really wanted a senior session to capture herself, her personality and where she is in life. BONUS: Because of this, she was able to include Cap and Gown as part of her session! I loved this!
When should I schedule my senior session?
This is a senior photography question I get ALL the time! I have come to the conclusion that if I am asked something enough times, then it is time to blog about it! There are a lot of factors in scheduling your senior photography session. When you are looking to schedule your senior session, you also need to consider questions yourself!
Things to Consider
Does my high school yearbook even allow environmental images? If the answer is “NO” and they only allow school formal drape photos, you can schedule them ANYTIME! What are drape photos? Here is an example! These are the standard images that nearly every senior receives as part of their senior year.
If they DO allow environmental images and you wish to use one from our session, you need to know their deadline. Many have deadlines in early November, some in early January. Check with your high school yearbook coordinator!
Do you want fall colors and the ability to wear layers?
Maybe you don’t mind the slow pace of January and can handle the cooler temps! Read about this great winter session we held in mid-January!
Do you want summer vibes with short dresses?
Do you want spring florals?
All of these are things to consider when scheduling your senior session. For me, personally, fall is the busiest time in my business. I always advise not waiting right up until a deadline, because the chance of rain COULD happen!
