When is the best time for senior portraits?

It may be sooner than you think!


Graduation is a huge milestone..

For your senior, it's one of their first major steps towards becoming an adult. It's their time to go out and conqueror the world!

It's also a huge accomplishment for you.

You spent the last 18 years teaching them everything you can about life. You did it! Now you want to celebrate and remember this wonderful time with a beautiful, timeless portrait. One you will cherish the rest of your life.

But you had better act fast. Once school starts, time will fly by even faster.  Your opportunity for that beautiful portrait will be gone before you know it.


6 reasons you should you have your child's senior portraits made the summer before senior year!

1. Your senior is still EXCITED about being a senior. In fact, they're more excited about it than they will ever be again.

2. Because they're excited, you're going to get the best variety of portraits - portraits they are going to love sharing with their friends, plus (different) portraits you're going to be proud to share with family and friends.

3. Once school's going to get CRAZY! If you thought their Junior school year was a busy one - Senior year will be even busier.
With senior projects, college selection, and all of those other senior activities will mean this year is stretched thinner than any before!

4. If you think “We'll wait until fall when the weather is better.” ...and you miss it, you'll be right in the middle of the holidays!

5. January, February and early March - the weather is dark, damp, and dreary. Not great weather for outdoor portraits.

6. Once spring break hits - your child will be OVER being a senior. They will have their sights clearly set on college, or the military, or whatever their plans are next! They'll be less interested - even refusing to have senior portraits made.

So what if school has already started?

The 2nd best time for senior portraits is as early in the school year as possible.

Fall is a great time.   Your senior is still rocking their summer tan, and in Texas we often have great weather all the way thought Christmas holidays.

So choose a fall weekend, or take a day during the Christmas break to get those senior pictures knocked out.

So get with your high school senior NOW, and start planning the perfect senior portraits for this summer.

By getting them done before school starts, you'll avoid the craziness of senior year, and you'll get the images of your senior that you want.

Besides - there's something really special about being one of the first in your class to have senior portraits to show!
