Sometimes, the glamorous photos are amazing. Actually most of the time they are amazing. But let’s talk about the underrated pictures. The simple ones. The ones that show off your personality in just one shot. The photos that elicit so many emotions in just one picture. Those are the pictures that I absolutely love. They are my favorite and I thought they should be highlighted on this blog today!!
1. Close Ups: I love the close up picture. No special background, props or wind in the hair. The standard, close up of your beautiful face in the studio. I love these pictures for a few different reasons. One, it’s just you. Just you and your beautiful self. Nothing is better than highlighting your true beautiful self and in these pictures there is nothing to distract from you. Everyone wants the glimmer and glam for their senior pictures, but pictures like these are always underrated but honestly they’re my favorite!
2. Candid: I love pictures that are candid. You don’t know when the camera is going to snap a picture and let’s be honest, a lot of the time those pictures are the best. I love seeing true character in people shining through. I love to see true smiles and I love to see goofy faces. All of these things are the reason I think candid pictures are so underrated. I also love these pictures when they’re with a friend. You can capture your relationship and really remember the friendship you had at that time of your life. I think capturing candid pictures just makes that time of life feel more real. So lean into the candid pictures and be sure you fully embrace them- you won’t regret it.
3. Support your high school: I love love love senior pictures with their letterman jacket. It seems so old school and let’s face it, not many people think to take pictures with their jackets. But if you do choose to take these pictures, I think they’re definitely worth it. It’s important to remember all of your accomplishments in high school and it’s important to remember all the good times you had and maybe even the harder times. Having pictures in your letterman jacket just keeps those memories in your mind and it’s important to always have those memories. So many people tell me they’re upset they didn’t take those pictures. Don’t make that mistake! Bring your high school gear and let’s take those pictures!
