Four things you DO need to know about your child's high school senior pictures.

  1. Schedule your senior session early – While we know life is busy, it is never a good idea to wait to schedule your senior’s portraits because of a combination of factors.
    • There are only so many days that will fit your schedule. 
    • There are only so many seniors a photographer can accept.
    • There are always deadlines for things like yearbook, graduation parties, etc.
  2. Your budget – Senior pictures are an investment so It is always a good idea to know upfront how much you would like to invest in your senior’s last childhood portraits.
  3. Does your high school require you to submit your own senior picture for the yearbook.

BONUS: The BEST time to schedule your child's senior portraits is toward the end of their junior year.  You will have the best availability by doing this.
