There are a number of decisions you should make when planning your senior photo session and
choosing a location is one of them. You shouldn’t choose just any location either – it needs to fit in with your personality and the style of your shoot! Your senior portraits are all about YOU!
Here are a few tips to help you narrow down your options a little quicker.
- Decide what you want your photos to say about you. Who are you? Do you love the
outdoors, art, sports? Are you a bit of a flower child? By jotting down the things you love, a few location ideas should spring to mind. Your photos need to showcase your personal style, so choose your location accordingly.
- Look for locations with different features. To ensure your photographer can capture a
variety of photos, look for a location with different spots and features. Examples of features include fences, trees, a swing, water or anything that could act as a backdrop.
- Decide what you want to wear. The outfit you choose for your senior photo session also
matters when choosing a location. For example, wearing an evening dress to the park
doesn’t exactly work very well. Your outfit should also match your personality, so decide on
this before you start looking at locations.
- Get creative. There are no set rules when it comes to choosing a location for your senior portrait session. Get creative, think outside the box, and choose a location that suits you. Ask around about interesting venues, take a drive through your city, or turn to Pinterest for some inspiration.
You can also explain your vision to your photographer – they will have a number of location
suggestions to offer.
