Let’s take a stroll down memory lane. Do you remember your senior photo experience? I remember mine vividly. When people remember things, it’s usually tied into it being one of the coolest things you’ve ever done or one of the worst things you have ever done. Let’s just say my senior photo experience was definitely NOT one of the coolest things I have ever done. But I remember it like it was just yesterday.
You were given a form with a studio address, you did your makeup and hair, and then you were asked to sit in a studio setting with a marbled backdrop (probably blue), wearing a cap and gown that totally didn’t go with your skin tone and were asked to smile. A couple of awkward head tilts, and shoulders back…and THAT. WAS. IT. No moments of laughter, wind in your hair, and living up that moment.
Let’s head far, far away from those formal, stuffy senior photos and really focus on telling the story of you, at this moment in time — because really, you totally know way more than your parents and you’re ready to take on the world. With such a fresh perspective in life, you should probably have some fresh senior photos too.
