Senior Portraits Saratoga | It’s All About Location

August and the start of school mean one thing–Senior Portraits!   Location can really enhance the mood of a portrait.

Last week, I blogged about the impact  the correct location has on Engagement Photos.  You can read that post here.  The same applies to Senior Portraits.  The Saratoga area is a fantastic place to have your High School Senior Portraits created.  We have so many really outstanding locations.  We have both town locations and beautiful countryside locations.

To me, this is a quintessential Saratoga Senior Portrait because it is outdoors in a field and Morgan is wearing an Equestrienne outfit.

You will never guess this location, but there are plenty of opportunities like this around town.

The Casino in Congress Park is always an interesting space. It looks different depending on what time of day it is.

Same spot, just a tight close up. Sami has beautiful eyes.

Sometimes you can find a really interesting fence in a downtown area.

Our downtown area has lots of old, distressed brick and the building tenants like to have lots of flowers and plants around.

We can usually find some gritty looking buildings too.

We also have lakes around if you want a more nautical look. It was like hitting the lottery that Alba’s Vans exactly matched the dock.

We can’t forget the boys! We photographed Aiden in the State Park. The architecture is very classic and masculine.

A golf course can be nice as well. There are several really great courses in our area.
Long Island Senior Portraits
This was just a really cool location on Long Island that I though I would just throw in.

And sometimes, all you really need is a patch of grass in some nice light.
