When is the best time to book your senior photo session? – there are several variables to take into consideration.
To ensure you find a time that works for you, start by looking at your availability. It’s always a great idea to book your High School Senior photo session in the summertime, before school starts. You never realize just how little time you have until you try and work a photoshoot into a busy senior year. Before you know it, it’s a month before you graduate, and you don’t have a date for your session yet.
Talk to your photographer about the kind of backdrop you would like for your photos. Nature, City, Mountain, Urban. Your photographer will tell you the best time of day for the type of location you want for your senior photos.
The main goal is to not be stressed before or on the day of your senior session – it will show in your photos. On the day of your shoot, you want to be relaxed and enjoy every second.
Yearbook photo deadline
If you want to wait until later into your senior year so that you will look a bit older, by all means do that. Just make sure that you schedule your senior photo shoot at least a month before your yearbook photo is due to give your photographer time to have the photo retouched for the yearbook.
There really is no right or wrong time to schedule your shoot, you just need to plan for it. The minute you have an idea of what your senior schedule will look like, start selecting a few dates – you won’t be sorry.
