The Senior Photos You Need | Senior Portraits Saratoga NY

Will You Get the Senior Photos You Need?

Senior Year is kind of a big deal. It marks the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another. That is why I truly think Senior Portraits are also a big deal.  But will you end up with the Senior Photos you need?

Now in my day, Senior Portraits consisted of going to the school for a literally five minute appointment where you wore a drape and sat on a stool in front of a backdrop. You ended up with maybe ten poses to choose from.  I think this might be the reason I do what I do.  While I do appreciate the need for a classic look for the yearbook and possibly one for posterity, I know that I can take Senior Portraits that depict much more for my clients.

So without further ado, here are a few photos I think Seniors should have:

A Few Full Length Shots:

Full length for the boys too–love this suit!

Three Quarters View:

Three quarters view–perfect for a desk portrait. I love a good Fall Session with beautiful foliage.

Horizontal Images:

Maybe a Few Black and White:
