When you start planning your senior photo session, it’s natural to have a million questions running through your head. The good news is that there are only 5 questions that you should be asking to make the most of your session.
Your senior photos are meant to capture who you are in this moment in your life. Here are the questions to ask to make sure you love your photos forever.
- What Is My Personal Style?
What is sitting in your closet? How do you like to style your hair? Now is the time to define your style. By doing so, you can pick a look for your senior photos that will make you feel comfortable and confident. There are no rules!
- What Do You Want to Remember About This Time In Your Life?
How do you spend your time when you’re not at school? What activities are you passionate about? Perhaps you play an instrument, or you spend time volunteering at a dog shelter. This is your session, so decide how you want to incorporate your passions into some of your photos.
- What Do You Want People to Say When They See Your Photos?
This is not about caring what other people think, it’s about the person and the values you want to take into the world after high school. What are the things you want to be remembered for and how can you bring that into your senior photos? Again, there are no right or wrong answers.
- What Does Your Best Smile Look Like?
Everyone has those photos that they look at and realize they weren’t smiling a genuine smile. Go through some of your latest photos and look for your most genuine smile. Think about what was happening in that moment and who you were with so that you can replicate that smile.
- Do I Want to Include Anyone In My Photos?
If there is someone in your life who has been integral to your senior year, consider whether you want to include them in some of your photos. If you want to do a friend senior shoot, go for it. If you want to include your mom or sister in a few of the shots, do it!
