Senior portraits. Every year, a new batch of students gets ready to finish high school, they are ready to go out and take on the world! They are just about done with this monumental task we call high school - they have worked very VERY hard, and are excited to start the next part of their adventure. This is a unique time in their life, you can almost literally see their excitement and ambition in their eyes. You can hear in their voice, notice it in their walk - it's pretty amazing! Part of this years events will be the senior portait. A moment caught in time, a snapshot of a time never to be repeated. A memory to have and hold forever. So why are the senior portraits always so awful? Most high schools provide a chance to get a senior portrait done. But they are assembly line, cookie cutter affairs that churn out dozens and dozens of the exact same picture. Photographers often refer to photography like this as "step and repeats." A person steps in front the camera, the picture is taken, they walk away, another person steps up, and repeat. The lights are the same for each picture, the pose is the same, the expression is the same - they are THE SAME PICTURE. Over and over again. Nothing is done to highlight the uniqueness and individuality of each person. Nothing is done to show their personality. No effort is made to bring out the excitement they are feeling. Nothing. It's not really the photographers fault - the situation just doesn't allow for them to take the time needed to really show something about the person they are photographing.
But it's not hopeless - most highschools will allow you to hire your OWN photographer and go do your OWN shoot. As long as the photographer knows the criteria the highschool needs followed, you can get amazing photos that show something about YOU! They can be unique to YOU, they can be YOUR pictures! You can pick a location that YOU like and get pictures that YOU like! And even if the school doesn't allow that (but most do!), you can still get your own pictures to remember this time in your life. Even if they don't appear in the yearbook (and, again, most highschools WILL allow you to do this!), you can still have images that celebrate this time in your life - pictures that NO ONE else has! Pictures that they will wish they had, but YOU will ACTUALLY have them!
