Spring is a great time for your senior portraits! If you’re a parent with a current junior or you are currently a junior yourself and are starting to think about your senior year this post is for you! When to book your senior portraits is such a huge question, especially here in New England. We are lucky with defined seasons that offer a lot of variety from a photo perspective. How do you decide what season is ideal for your senior photos? I’m going to do a series of blog posts that highlight the pros for each season.
First up is Spring, since we are so close. Especially today when I’m writing this, we are being spoiled with a gorgeous 60 degree day in February!
Maybe you’re a current senior, graduating soon. Spring is the perfect time to book your senior portrait session. Maybe you opted to do a generic yearbook photo at your school. Just a plain backdrop no bells or whistles. Or maybe that’s what your school requires for yearbook photo consistency.
If that’s you, you can still book a senior photo session in the spring right before your graduate. All the pressure of applying to college is over, you are in the homestretch and you have more time to schedule your session. Your senior photos will truly reflect who you are at the end of your senior year which is a really nice keepsake for you and your family.
If you are a current senior graduating, you could also include your cap and gown in your senior portrait session. Which is another fun way to celebrate all your accomplishments.
Okay onto those of you who are currently juniors, sometimes called a rising senior (or a parent) trying to get an idea of when to book your senior photos. First thing to consider. Do you need these photos for your schools yearbook? If you do, you’re going to need to find out what your schools deadline is for submitting your photo.
You can definitely book your senior portraits in the late Spring of your junior year. Before you start your senior year in September, you won’t have the long to do list associated with your senior year! Seniors that put off their senior portraits have told me they were stressed trying to schedule them with everything they had going on in the Fall. Doing them in the Spring alleviates that issue!
If you love the flowering trees and plants they really start to shine in the Spring. It’s a perfect time for your senior photos. I have lots of great locations to recommend that take advantage of what Spring has to offer. Another perk of spring senior portraits is it isn’t usually as hot and humid as the Summer. Your hair will behave better, you won’t be sweaty in your photos and you can wear that cute sweater or long sleeve outfit without worrying about being too hot.
Now you know, Spring is a great time for senior portraits. Reach out at least a few weeks before you want to schedule your senior photo session. Even sooner if you want to make sure you make it onto my calendar before I get booked up. I always try to accommodate last minute sessions, but sometimes it’s not possible.
