It's That Time! You have worked so hard to get here, three years of high school in the books and now you are heading into your senior year. Undoubtedly there is going to be a lot to do this year, getting all of your applications in for college, applying for scholarships, finishing your high school sports career on a high note, and getting your senior pictures done... yup, you need to get those senior pictures done before your schools deadline, we are here to help you prepare.
While you could wait right up until that last second to have these done, we suggest July & August. There are many reasons for this but one of the main reasons is to reduce stress, there is nothing more stressful than being close to a deadline for anything in life, let alone the pictures that you will be remembered by for years to come. When you have your senior pictures done in July or August the benefits are two-fold, you get them done with plenty of time to spare, and if something does go wrong, you have plenty of time for retakes.
We live in Maine, we have beautiful summers, it is something you should take advantage of. Senior pictures in July & August are sure to look great.
This is one of the most important questions you need to answer. You will want to take your personality into consideration here. Are you an athlete? You may want to try to incorporate that into these pictures. Are you a member of the band? You may want a few pictures with your uniform on. Do you have a style that is all your own? You will certainly want to take that into consideration. Whatever you wear to your senior pictures make sure it exemplifies your personality, this is how the classmates that graduate with you are going to forever remember you with.
We cannot speak for other photographers but at Goodrich Photography we love it when seniors bring their props... it helps us show your personality, making your senior pictures stand out for the hundreds of others. We have had seniors bring their guitars, we have had seniors bring sports equipment, there have been senior sessions with their favorite pet, many seniors like to involve their first car... the list is endless. There is no bad ideas when it comes to props, let your personality shine through.
While you can have a friend or family member snap a few pictures and send them into your school, this probably should be done only as a last resort. You will want to hire someone that will do a good job, someone that has done it before. It is important to find someone that is going to put you at ease throughout the process. Please consider Goodrich Photography for your senior pictures, we will make sure that your favorite prop is used, your senior pictures look great, and you will have pictures that you will be proud of for years to come. This is your senior year, make it all count, get into that college, win those championships and have pictures done that will leave the rest of the class envious. Good luck with your senior year, Goodrich Photography wishes you the best!
