Graduating from high school is one of the most memorable days of your adolescence. If you want the picture to capture the essence of who you are, don’t just take standard senior pictures in front of a blank studio backdrop.
Instead, try one of these five creative senior picture ideas to capture the spirit of your final year of school:
- Pose With Your Best Friend: Best friends play a huge role in defining your time in high school. They’re the ones you attend football games and school dances with, and they’re the person you stay up all night studying with. Why not recreate the memories you and your best friend shared over the last four years in your senior pictures?
- Include Your Graduation Year: While incorporating your graduation year may seem simple, it’s a cornerstone of your senior pictures that you shouldn’t forget. For a simple display, use a sign to showcase your graduation year. If you want to be a little more creative, write it out in sparklers, make a colorful sidewalk display with chalk, or spell it out using sporting balls.
- Go Somewhere You Love: Personalize your senior pictures by going off-site to some of your favorite spots. For example, the school’s football field where you played, or the lake where you spent your weekends—any location that is special or defines your time in school is fair game.
- Commemorate Your Favorite Sport: Honor your high school athleticism in your senior photos. Try taking an in-action, time-lapsed photo that displays a particularly difficult move that you pull off easily.
- Remember Your First Day of School: Chances are that on your very first day of grade school, your parents took a photo commemorating the occasion. Recreate that first photo in your senior pictures to show off how far you’ve come and how much you’ve achieved.
