Each of these young and gorgeous individuals brought creativity, personality and fun to their session. I hope they enjoyed the experience as much as I did and continue to smile when they see the images we captured.
I focus very little on getting that “yearbook” shot during a session. We’re usually having too much fun climbing around and exploring different locations, light and poses to worry about that “head and shoulders” shot.
But, in the end, the yearbook is a BIG deal to all of us. I encourage each of my clients to not think about the “yearbook” limitations, but to pick their favorite picture. The one where they really see themselves shine. Then I, with the help of a little Photoshop magic, turn it into the yearbook-ready image they need.
I completely handle making the photo fit each high school’s set of rules and specifications. All of my clients are grateful to put the often complicated resolution and file details in my hands. And, I, being the control-freak that I am, want to do it. Senior portraits need to be perfect. Sharp and cropped just right.
Best of luck to the Class of 2012. Burn bright and lead the way!
