Welcome to the beginning of adulthood! It seems scary, this magical time between one major milestone of graduating high school and starting the next of moving out and creating your own life. Trust me. I have been there! Looking back now, I wish I could go back and just savor those moments for a few minutes more. You studied, you tested, you worked hard for years, and the time is officially here! A question you may be asking yourself is how to pick the right senior photographer?
Have fun. Seriously, don’t stress about what to wear, what to do, or where to go for your session. Think about how great it will be to express yourself and show off in front of a camera. You’re young and hip, right? Embrace it, and be you.
Choose a photographer you mesh with, and the rest is history. Being comfortable with someone taking your photographs will help ease your nerves. You will spend part of the day with this person, so you want to make sure it will be enjoyable. Ask them questions, and they should return questions and answers back to you. They need to be interested in you, because this session is all about you!
Ask to see a photographer’s portfolio and work. Each photographer has their own unique style. Make sure it flows with your personality, and that their images get you excited! Don’t write off a photographer who has only been in business for a few years, though. You would be surprised how many clients one person can take on in just one year! Besides, it is nice to have a modern look at creative ideas.
Don’t overthink it. I know it may seem overwhelming. This time of your life goes by quickly and in a blur. You are thinking that you want your hair perfect, your outfit perfect, your images to pop out, but you can’t bombard yourself. As long as you are having a good time and laughing, your portraits will turn out amazing.
