So you’re done with junior year (CONGRATS!!!) and now senior year is approaching. It’s that time to start thinking about when is the best time for your senior portraits. Considering what month/season you’d like your senior pictures to be taken in is always best to think about early – photographers can get booked up quickly and you don’t want to miss your chance!
If your school has a deadline for a yearbook photo (which most of them do) that will be a big factor as well. Also, consider if you are thinking about having a graduation party it’s always great to have senior pictures for those invitations as well as sending over graduation announcements!
So, when is the best time for senior portraits? It’s completely up to you! I will walk you through a few pros and cons of each time and season.
Typically senior photos will be done in the spring/summer before your senior year or the fall/winter during your senior year.
Spring is a great time for senior portraits but it’s very often forgotten. You can choose to do them before your senior year (while you’re a junior) or you can hold off until the spring of your senior year right before graduation!
Summer is one of my favorite times for senior portraits! I am partial to longer days, beautiful greens, warm weather, and wildflower fields at their peak! Let’s head to the lake and get some great images!
Pretty sure fall is my absolute favorite season! The colors, the clothes, the crisp air! I love it all. In my opinion – the best time for senior portraits!
I know it’s so cold but oh the snow can be so gorgeous! The best time here in Minnesota will like be January/February for snow pictures.
Each moment of the year has it’s own beauty.Ralph Waldo Emerson
No matter what season you choose just make sure that it’s right for you! The best time for senior portraits is whatever season works best for you and your vision. Keep yearbook deadlines in mind or any need for photos for grad invitations and things like that. If you need any other tips and tricks just comment below!
