Tires for a background? I think it's cool and so did she. This is an image from a few years ago. It's not an image Grandma would like, but hey, it's a whole new world. I think even Uncle Si from Duck Dynasty would like it. Hey
Summer is almost upon us and it got me thinking about Senior Portraits. It the time of year when High School Juniors start thinking about who is going to take their Senior Portraits. It's a big deal in the U.S. and it is normally the last time a person has a professional portrait taken until they get married. It's a fun portrait session because I get to photograph in places that I don't normally go and I get to take images that are more out there. Yes I still take the head and shoulder smiling image for the Grandparents, but I also get to take images where the Senior is moving and not smiling. It a great time and I hope that I am the first choice on your list if it is your year. Call me and lets create a new meaning for the phrase "Having a Senior Moment".
Brick walls make a great backdrop when you are doing High School Senior Portraits. This wall is in downtown Billings, but there are hundreds of different walls and textures that make good backgrounds, everywhere. It is always fun to find that different look at each location. Something that looks completely terrible when you drive by might just be the greatest background when compressed down in an image. If you see a great place that might make a great image, give me a call. I am always on the look out for new locations.
When it comes time for your Senior Portraits don't forget to bring the things that make up your personality. Instruments, sports equipment, awards, and even pets say more about you in a portrait. Help me tell your story and let me go beyond just that image for Grandma. The Grandma portrait is important, don't get me wrong, but there is so much more to Senior Portraits these days. Getting that print for relatives is important not only for the beauty of it, but for a lasting memory that you can keep to show your children and grandchildren. Also don't forget that you will want your images to post on Facebook or Pinterest and to carry around on your phone. These options are available today and have become common place. Get the most out of your Senior year.
It's that time of year again. When you should start thinking about who is going to take your Senior portraits. You are about to get buried in Senior mail-outs from the high volume studios in the area. Don't worry, look at them, pick your favorite poses and locations and call around, talk to the photographer and see who you like. It's important to talk to the photographer that is going to take the most important portrait of your life to date. As you look around remember the most expensive doesn't mean the best and the cheapest doesn't mean the best bargain or quality. Ask the photographer how long he or she has been in business. Is photography a full-time or part-time job for them. The trend now is location photography, not just going to the park or downtown but taking a few images at your home. You would be surprised at what can be done there.
Of course, I would hope that you would consider PortraitMagic for your Senior portrait. Give me a call and I would be happy to talk to you about my prices and what I offer.
