Your senior year of high school is a memorable time that you will often look back on in the future. One unique thing about your senior year is that you’ll be able to take home a yearbook. Each one will have a different picture of students that shows what their interests were and how they want to be remembered. Often times, senior portraits are taken on school grounds with nothing to make these memorable photos personal. As a senior portrait photographer, I have come up with 5 ways you can make your portrait unique and memorable.
1. Choose a memorable spot outdoors. Maybe it is in your favorite state park, or even the dirt bike trail you love. I will come to you to make your portrait unique and personal.
2. Incorporate something in the photo that you love. I have a lot of students asked to be photographed with their pet, I even had one student ask if she could have her martial arts weapon in the photo. Another student wanted to include his prized Ford Mustang. As long as it is a feasible, then I will let you bring it.
3. I have also encouraged students that are looking into an Art Degree to bring along recent pieces of art they have created that they are proud of. This art can be something that memorializes your best experiences of high school.
4. Another new and unique pose is to have your portrait taken while you’re upside down. This creates a new and exciting perspective. Just don’t hurt yourself in the process!
5. Look around town for a unique background. It could be the wall of a coffee shop you frequent with your friends, or even the lanes of a local bowling alley. Incorporating something you enjoy from your hometown will make the picture memorable for years to come.
