How to Choose a Location for Your Senior Portraits?

With this one question, I have stumped several seniors.

The question: What location do you find the most meaningful for your senior photo session?

The answer I often get: “I don’t think I find any location meaningful,” and that too after thinking for several minutes.


So, I decided to do something about it. Just like a study guide that your teacher gives you to prepare you for a test, I give you the “Tips to Select a Location for Your Senior Photoshoot Guide.” Here’s what I want you to do. I want you to answer these questions to find out the best and most meaningful location for your senior portraits.




  1. Where Do You Go? Or What Do You Do After Having a Stressful Day?

After a stressful day, you may go for a run to relax. You may like to read a good book or dance to music. You may like to eat your favorite food or drink your favorite beverage. You may like to go out to the lake. Whatever you like to do or go for relaxation, that’s your location.

(Gaby loves going to Stone Such Bridge with her friends so guess what that's what we did for her senior photos!)


What Are Your Hobbies?

If you like to play tennis, you will head to the tennis court. If you like to swim, you will dive into the swimming pool. If you like to play an instrument, you’ll practice playing it often. If you like to go on hikes, you’ll hit the trail. If you like to roam around on a bicycle, you’ll cycle away!

I can capture you doing what you love such as playing the guitar outdoors while sitting on the grass. If your hobby takes place at a certain location, we’ll go there. If your hobby is cooking or playing chess, we can be anywhere. I can even find a location for you.

Ella loves reading and Harry Potter! So she brought her books so we could make some awesome photos with them.
