7 Reasons to Book Your Senior Photos Now!

Bay Area Senior session

Your baby is growing up! They are entering their final year of high school! It is both exciting and scary to know this is the last year of childhood. Senior Photos are one great way to memorialize this milestone in your child’s life.

It is just a great way to kick off the new year, or to end their senior year! Below are 7 reasons to book your seniors’ photos now!

Reason 1:) Photographers get booked up fast!

Photographers, especially experienced photographers are often booked up months in advance, especially in the spring and the fall! Start looking around at how does Senior photos and whose style you love the most. Then reach out and get to know them. It’s super important that your senior is comfortable with the photographer that you hire.

Reason 2:) Looks great for yearbook senior photos page!

One of my regrets from high school is that I didn’t get personalized senior portraits done, just the stiff ones in the studio. I had a bunch of candid’s that weren’t always flattering lol. Ensure your senior photos celebrate who they are at their best so they can look back for years and years to come! If you have Junior, right now is the time to start looking ahead. I actually offer a Senior rep program to Juniors for the following here. It’s a great way to get amazing shots in the Yearbook for their senior year.

Reason 3:) Wonderful for holiday postcards!

Why not kill 2 birds with one stone! Get wonderful Senior photos and celebrate this amazing milestone in your child’s life with unique holiday cards! 2 out of my 3 Senior packages includes a complimentary family session. Why do I do this? Because there is nothing more important than family, and I understand how important getting photographs with your loved ones are. I allow my clients to use their complimentary family session up to 12 months out:)

Reason 4:) Throw in some formal wear!

I am always up for a reason to dress up and look like a princess. This may not be your kiddo, but if it is I have an amazing collection of gowns that I include in all of my senior packages. Check out this amazing pink number above, plus I have about 15 more gowns sizes 2 – 16! This is myself in one of my gowns!




Reason 5:) This is the best time of year!

There are two amazing times of year for photographs, the spring and the fall. We are fortunate enough to live in the San Francisco Bay area so pretty much any time of year can be amazing, but there is just something special about the spring and the fall, am I right? Many moms decide to do senior photos right when they start their senior year, later in the spring, and then cap it off with cap and gown photos near graduation.

Reason 6:) Join Our Senior Photos Rep Program!

In the spring we offer next years Seniors the opportunity to join our Senior Rep program, which is such a fun way to participate in several fun photo-sessions throughout their senior year. If you’re reading this in the Fall, I keep the Senior Rep program open for this years Seniors until the end of September and then I shut it down. I only accept about 7 seniors into the program as I want it to be very exclusive experience for each student.

Reason 7:) Build up your Senior’s Confidence!

If your senior, like many, suffers from low self-confidence, a portrait session will do wonders! I know from personal experience how good it feels to have a beautiful portrait session done. In the past I have suffered from body image issues, but on a milestone birthday, I had a mentor do a professional session and I felt like a princess! It was amazing! I love being able to do the same for others!
