Senior Year Photographs: Inspired Creativity

Your Senior Year Photographs

Senior year is all about having fun and tackling new adventures, right? So why not channel that right into your senior portraits?…Let’s call them senior photos because ‘portrait’ is so formal! Seniors are getting much more creative and the days of just the cap and gown formal portraits has gone. Considering the cost of senior photos, the trend to truly personalize them is perfect. I’m loving this new movement!

Don’t get me wrong, you earned that cap and gown, so we’ll get some snaps of that, but I want to see the fun and creative side of you too. I strive to bring out the personality in my seniors. Before any session we sit down and discuss what’s truly unique to you. You want a GQ-fast food shoot like Andrew McBurnie at Taco Bell? You got it! I love that he used that opportunity to 1. Look freaking sharp and 2. Chose a location that he and his friends spent a lot of time at during his high school career. You can’t look at those photos and not see his personality shine right through, serious – but clearly not too serious.

Who doesn’t love a good theme? My photography heart beats for a classic Harry Potter themed shoot. Are you a Gryffindor or maybe a Hufflepuff? Do you want to do a tongue-in-cheek boy under the stairs shoot? Check out these Harry Potter themed Senior shoots. I love the use of the wands and the special effects added in.

Maybe you are slightly more reserved or don’t have a specific genre you want to capture, that’s okay! Using a mural or color wall around Houston can also work! Houston has so many beautiful mural walls that create a great backdrop for some fun senior photos. A few of my favorite spots are the Biscuit Paint Wall and the Polka Dot Wall. I also love everything about Discovery Green, you should check out Carrie Colbert’s Mural Guide for some inspiration.

Feeling inspired yet? If so, awesome!! Thus we should collaborate on your senior pictures and make some magic. Remember: we can get photos your Mom insists on but we can also have some fun!
