A Senior Photoshoot: The Most Important Pics in Your Life
Seniors are obsessed with photos! We are living in the era of social media when selfies are an essential part of every teen’s life. Hands down, seniors know how to take Instagram-worthy pictures. This doesn’t, however, mean that professional photographers are doomed to die out. On the contrary, a pro photographer and their young yet tech-savvy model can make a perfect duo. Professionals can offer outstanding quality and youngsters have a ton of fresh ideas. A senior photoshoot is a synergistic interaction and a thrilling experience for both parties. If you have a chance to work with a good photographer, don’t think twice, grab it!
Why Professional Senior Photoshoots are Important
You surely know how to handle a camera on your phone and a tripod. Sometimes, however, there are moments when you think to yourself: ‘I wish I had somebody to take a picture of me’. And it would be nice if this somebody knew everything about the right angles and the right lighting. In a moment like this, a pro photographer would really come in handy. But this is only one of many reasons to get your portraits done professionally.
Remember Your School Time
It just seems like time spent in high school is endless. In fact, this time is like a spark – it is bright but too short. Blink and you’ll miss it. Decades later, you will regret that you have little memory of your senior years. Will you still remember your favorite band? Which subjects did you like the most and which ones not so much? Which events and people had the greatest impact on your life? Sooner or later, you will ask yourself these questions but whether you’ll find the answers depends only on you.
A senior photoshoot is a great refresher for your memory. This is the only time-tested solution to remember yourself as you are now. Memory can let you down, blurry photos may get lost, but high-quality professional portraits are a thing that you will cherish through the years. And if one day you need proof that you were young and aspiring, it will always be close at hand.
Say Thanks to Your Friends
School years are not only about you but also about your friends. These are the people who inspire you, make you laugh, and laugh with you. Now you are thick as thieves but when it’s time to go to college, your friends will be scattered all over the country. While you still have a chance to do something together, why not go to a photo session?
You probably think that a photoshoot in a studio is not that much fun. But you don’t need to get stuck in an unfamiliar place with a camera person to get pictures. A photographer can follow you to any location meaningful to your friendship. At a place where you feel at ease, you and your besties can get the most awesome photographs in your life. These pictures will be a reward for all of you for the support and care you gave each other. And when you’re away from your friends, they will help evoke good memories and put a smile on your face.
Capture Your Teen-to-Adult Transition
High school years are full of milestones. These milestones make us proud of ourselves and shape us into who we are. With each achievement, we become wiser, stronger, and more confident. Wouldn’t it be cool to capture the process of transformation from a beautiful duckling into an even more beautiful swan? Sure it would, and this is another reason to get a pro-senior proto shoot.
We have no doubt that snapshots taken by your friends are precious but it is always great to have a new perspective. Did you know that strangers see us differently than our loved ones? Would you like to see yourself through their eyes? A professional photographer is an expert at noting small details such as sparkles in your eyes or the warmth of your smile. For this reason, a photographer is the right kind of person to document the chronicles of your growing up. You may need a few photoshoots to have a full picture of a child-turned-into-an-adult but you’ll thank yourself for that later.
End Your School Years with a Bang
Everything comes to an end, even school. Whether you like your school or not, you have to celebrate your graduation. A graduation senior photoshoot is the nicest way to put an exclamation mark on your school years. And the best thing about it is that you can have it on your terms. Come up with a theme for your session, pick props and clothes, call your friends – you can do whatever you want to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Do It Professionally
Many teens are naturally photogenic, but this might not be the case with you. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Luckily, you can learn how to pose from a photographer. When, if not before your graduation, is the right time to master the art of looking good in photographs? You’ll need this in your further life because you don’t want every shot to be as ‘beautiful’ as your driver’s license photo. So, you can count on a photographer to get advice on how to stand, what to do with your hands, and how to hide things you don’t like about yourself.
Professional senior photography is much more than posing. It is also beneficially chosen lighting because a photo is nothing more than captured light. Proper light settings ensure that your face and body look great. This is especially critical for teens who have lots of concerns about their appearance. Setting up lighting may seem easy but in reality, it is a tall order. To make everything right, a photographer needs to have a mix of experience and the sixth sense. But the result is stunning, dramatic, and expressive pictures deserving to be a fixture of your social media.
