Ahhh, senior portrait season – when the cattle calls are made at the big studios that photograph 1000’s of high school seniors. . . .
I remember going through that with my son a couple years ago. He was required to use the school’s recommended photographer for the yearbook photo. And what most people believe is that they have no other options. Not true!
Yes, the school wants all their students to have a uniform look so the yearbook looks cohesive. But outside of the yearbook photo, you can use any photographer you want. When my son went to the “other” photographer, he was made to wear a tie (not his thing0, they sat him on a swivel stool. The teenage “photographer” pulled a thin ribbon from the soft box (flash) to his chin, and she pressed the button. She had him swivel the other way, did the same thing, click the button, and BOOM! 5 minutes later he was done!
Needless to say, we didn’t purchase any of those photos. His personality was nowhere to be found in them! Here’s one we did when he let me photograph him. We found some paint-peeling walls downtown for a little grunge, grabbed his guitar, and made it about him. BTW, he’s an amazing guitar player – self-taught, even! (proud mama moment here).
Now, there are quite a few kids that just don’t give a rip about senior photos. They may not like being in front of the camera, or making a fuss. That would have been me – I’m MUCH more comfortable behind the camera!
But there are a select few in every school that do like to shake things up a bit, to show off who they are, what makes them tick, and have fun getting creative. Those are my peeps! Check out the seniors gallery here.
So this week, we’re featuring a supa-dupa sale –
just $79 for a senior portrait session
at the location of your choice (in San Diego County).
Let’s get creative! Let’s show the world who this cool almost-adult person is! Let’s give mom some amazing memories of “her baby” before you fly the coop and head off to college!
