Seniors (especially girls) will virtually get their picture taken every day of high school—summers included . With SmartPhones, Instagram and SnapChat as popular as they are, your senior will literally have their picture taken every. single. day. Senior portraits are important because the session can be a very exclusive time and it is focused only on them. It’s an opportunity to make them feel special, confident and ready to step out into the world. For the next four years, these portraits will help close the gap between summer visits and the miles between home and campus. These images will help to be a visual hug when you are missing each other. These images will serve as timeless art that bridges the transformation between adolescence and adulthood.
Senior portraits are also an opportunity to document a pivotal point—a milestone in your child’s life. There are only a handful of defining moments that we share with so many other people in life and high school graduation is one of them (birth, college graduation and marriage are the others). Your child’s life will change so much after this year. They will go on to meet new friends, discover new interests and explore their independence. In a lot of ways, the end of high school symbolizes the end of innocence… the end of life’s simplicity… the end of the first quarter of one’s life. They will find out who they are after high school. They will become a new person… an adult. Preserve this time.
Don’t let this transition in life go undocumented. Don’t miss the chance for your high school senior to stand up, get noticed and announce, “Hey world, here I come!” Because after all, those selfies only go so far!
Until next time, be positive, happy, and healthy, and don’t forget to be photographed.
