When is the "Right Time" to Take Your Senior Photos?
While preparing for your high school senior photos may seem exhausting, it is easiest to take it step by step, starting with choosing the optimal time to take your photos. In order to end up with the most beautiful and personal product, you should consider your desired outfit, setting, and overall vibe when choosing the right time to capture your photos.
Choosing to have a photoshoot in the summer may be better for a senior with a busy schedule because you won’t have to worry about school work and extracurricular activities. This, paired with the Orlando area’s predictable weather and green trees may make a summer photoshoot the most reliable. In addition to all of this, a summer photoshoot allows you to have your photos early on in the year so you can use them all year long. With countless “Senior Sundays” and social media opportunities, having your senior photos as early as possible can make your Instagram, shine throughout your entire senior year + you will be able to use your photos for the yearbook! Taking your senior photos in the summer is a great way to start your senior year off with a bang!
Fall is often the most popular time of year among seniors because of the beautiful weather in Orlando . With fun fashion trends such as sweaters, hats and boots, a fall photo shoot is great for a fashionable senior. As you settle into your school schedule and cooler temperatures begin to arrive, a fall shoot may be perfect for you!
While winter is usually not everyone’s first thought for a senior shoot, it can sometimes be just what someone needs! After all, choosing the best time to take your photos is unique to each individual senior and their vision. The most attractive quality of a winter session is the slower and more flexible schedule. If setting aside time for a session is difficult for you, senior photographers tend to have a more open and flexible schedule during the winter months. The cold weather allows for more layers in your wardrobe and taking photos in a more urban setting is great for winter.
Spring is a great time to take your photos because it is right before graduation, meaning you will look exactly as you will when you graduate! Bright spring colors and mild weather make this season great for outdoor shoots. A spring photo shoot is something you can look forward to all year long, and is a perfect way to end this special chapter of your life. Additionally, a Spring photoshoot allows the opportunity to take cap and gown photos!
There's really no right answer “When is the best time to take your senior photos?”. The best time to take your photos is entirely up to you and your family! When booking your session, remember to consider your outfit, setting, and scheduling needs in order to create the most memorable and one-of-a-kind senior photos.
