When Is the Best Time to Book My Senior Photo Session?

There is no one answer to when you should book your senior photo session – there are several  variables to take into consideration.

Availability 

To ensure you find a time that works for you, start by looking at your availability. You never realize  just how little time you have until you try and work a photoshoot into a busy senior year. Before you  know it, it’s a month before you graduate, and you don’t have a date for your session yet.  

For example, many extra-curricular activities take place in the fall, leaving very little time for a senior  photo session. If you are more involved in sports such as softball, spring is a difficult season to plan around.

 

The main goal is to not be stressed before or on the day of your senior session – it will show in your  photos. On the day of your shoot, you want to be relaxed and enjoy every second.

The Theme 

Most likely you already have some idea of the types of photos you want to take to commemorate  your senior year. Outfits play an integral role in the overall style of your shoot. If you want to wear a  beautiful boho outfit for your senior session, shooting in winter isn’t quite going to work. Get a clear  idea of the style you would prefer before you choose a date for your photo session.

The Location 

Your location will also fit in with the theme of your shoot. However, not all locations and settings  look good at certain times of the year. Want an urban shoot? This works at almost any time of the  year. Prefer to take photos at a local park? Spring and fall create the best backdrops.  

There really is no right or wrong time to schedule your shoot, you just need to plan for it. The minute  you have an idea of what your senior schedule will look like, start selecting a few dates – you won’t  be sorry.
