Everything Your High School Senior Should Know for Their Colorado Springs Senior Photo Session

“How are they almost ready to graduate?”

If you’re anything like me, you probably feel like your children are growing up WAY too fast, am I right? Well don’t worry too much--I’m here to make your child’s senior photo session easy peasy so you can celebrate this time with them and have a beautiful keepsake to enjoy for years to come!

Below I will walk you through your child’s senior photo session step-by-step so you can arrive prepared for their photoshoot and enjoy this special moment with confidence, ease, and pride.

When Should I Schedule a Senior Photo Session?

Senior photo sessions can take place anytime! I typically request at least a few weeks’ notice prior to your session, however you are welcome to reach out to me anytime to check my availability for your preferred day and time. Please keep in mind that the editing process can take about 5-7 days in total once you make your photo selections, so I recommend factoring this into your planning to meet school and yearbook deadlines.

Scheduling is easy! Simply fill out this form and you’ll be contacted for additional details about your desired location, aesthetic, and timing for your Senior Photos.

What Should I Wear for My Senior Photos?

I recommend wearing something that shows your unique personality, while also being something you’ll enjoy later in life! Senior photos are an amazing keepsake throughout life!

Things to think about when planning your look:

  • Do the colors go well together? Try to select an outfit or two that coordinate well so you stand out from your surroundings, but you don’t clash with them.

  • Do you have any patterns on your clothing? If so, maybe ditch it for something pattern-free or with minimal pattern! Sometimes patterns can be distracting to the eye.

  • What backdrop will you have? Be sure your outfits don’t clash too much with your backdrop and any props you plan on using.

  • What are your plans for your hair/makeup? If you’d like your hair and makeup done professionally, I can recommend some great vendors for you in the Colorado Springs area! If you don’t plan to have your hair or makeup done professionally, I’d recommend looking on Google or Pinterest for inspiration so you know what your plan is the day of your photo session when you get ready.

How Long Do Senior Photo Sessions Take?

Senior photo sessions usually take about 1-2 hours depending on the number of outfit changes you do, the location(s) of your photoshoot, and the package you choose! I will be able to give you a more precise estimate once I have additional details about your specific session.
