5 Reasons to Hire a Professional Senior Portrait Photographer

It’s your senior year hooray! Are you looking forward to celebrating this important year with a senior portrait session but don’t know who to use? Phones take pretty good pictures right?! And I know a friend is dabbling in photography. Could they take my photo? But the truth is not everyone with a camera is a great photographer. As such, you don’t want to rely on just anyone with a nice camera….you want a professional!

After 6 years of practicing, I started my business in 2015 as a professional photographer. Since then, I have perfected my craft by developing an experience that is comfortable, casual and concise. It wont take me hours to get those great shots of you and the laid back atmosphere of your session is bound to be appealing. Clicking a shutter is only a small part of capturing you at your best.

Here are 5 reasons to hire a professional senior portrait photographer:

1. Equipment

I have the right skills and equipment! You need more than a fancy camera to consistently take beautiful senior pictures. Its been said before, “wow, that’s me? Your camera takes really great photos!”, and as true as that is, my camera gear is only a part of my many tools. It takes skills to know not only camera settings, but what directions to give, angles to use, backgrounds and what light works best for your senior photos.

2. You’ll be ready

You may know lots of cool tricks for makeup after watching YouTube tutorials. However, knowing exactly what and how much to apply for a photo shoot can be more difficult. Instead of just applying more of your everyday makeup, try hiring a professional MUA. A MUA experienced in doing make up specifically for photo shoots while keep you looking like you. I know there are many of you out there who will also love to feel pampered and not have to stress about hair and makeup.

3. You’ll be well cared for

Don’t worry about a thing! You will be well cared for when you hire me for your senior photos. I know you are busy with school, sports, college applications and more so you don’t have time to go to extra appointments like a photo consultation, viewing appointment, or spend hours to do a photoshoot! I keep my shoots simple but complete by giving you the information you need such as location selection, a guide for what to wear and a simple ordering menu for physical prints. My photo collections have been perfected over the years to offer you and your family exactly what you need without having to stress over setting up yet another appointment.

4. Your pictures were meant for more than a digital screen

Your images can go from fleeting digital pixels into valuable works of art! Yes, digital images are the first thing most teens want in order to share their senior photos on social media and that is perfectly fine. However, the photos that are displayed and shared with the most are those physical images. Photos are meant to be displayed and with the collection options I offer, you wont miss out on the best products. At a minimum, every one of my physical collections includes an album, wall art and gift prints.

5. Senior year only happens once

You are only a high school senior once and you deserve to be celebrated! 12+ years is a heck of a long time to be in school and you have worked hard to get here! While it may have seemed like it took an eternity, this moment will not last forever. By hiring a professional photographer you are giving yourself the gift of a celebrated memory which is the most valuable thing to have in life. These photos are a document of who you are right now and all that you have accomplished. Long after your school years you will be able to look back and enjoy every part of being a senior.
