3 Reasons to Have Senior Portraits Taken, St. Charles, Missouri

Senior portraits are an important rite of passage for high schoolers approaching graduation. Since their school may have a yearbook session scheduled, some students may wonder whether it’s really necessary to have their picture taken at a professional studio. If you’re on the fence about your child’s senior pictures, here are some compelling reasons to book a photographer.   

3 Reasons to Book Senior Portraits

1. Showcase Your Personality

Your child will only be a senior in high school once, and one day, they’ll want to reflect on the person they were during this major turning point in life. A professional photographer can capture their personality with a setting and pose that showcases their unique qualities.

While the photographer may offer some guidance on clothing choice, your child will also get to decide what to wear to best show off their stylistic preferences and comfort.

2. Delight the Family

Immediate and extended family will display these images proudly as a testament to all the accomplishments that have led to the next life chapter.

Additionally, your senior can include smaller images in their graduation party invitations or announcements or display a one-of-a-kind, professionally designed album for friends and family to see the many outfits and expressions of your graduate.

3. Receive High-Quality Photos

Professional photographers have industry-leading cameras, lenses, lighting, and the know-how needed to capture the perfect images. From lighting and composition, to knowing exactly what pose will work best in a shot, the art of professional photography is subtle but powerful.

You simply can’t get these stunning finished products from a smartphone camera no matter what photo-editing app you use. Plus, in addition to having print copies, the photographer will share favorite images online, which you and your senior can show off on your social media accounts.
