Fun & Unique Ideas for Your Senior Photos

Jul 16, 2021

You’re graduating high school soon! What better way to mark this occasion than with a professional senior portrait session? It’s a chance to capture your personality and your high school career as you prepare to start your new life in college or your career.

Our goal is to make your senior portrait session a fun experience, and there are so many ways we can do that! Scroll through Pinterest and you’ll see tons of ideas for how to make your senior photos unique. Here are a few of our favorites!

Your favorite school spots

Did you have a particular seat during football games? A special study spot? Why not incorporate these special memories into your senior portraits?

On the sports field (or court)

If you play a sport in high school, a great way to recognize your athletic career is to take photos on the field or in the gym where you practiced and played. Bonus points if you include your sports equipment or jersey.


Your go-to hangout

If you have a favorite restaurant or place to spend your free time, why not take some photos there? After all, this place is special to you and likely something you will want to remember for years to come.



Dress up for prom

You don’t want to wear that prom dress or that special suit just once! Show off your prom look again and take some formal photos during your senior portrait session. Or take some fun photos in your formal wear like jumping in a lake!



Put on the cap and gown Your parents will love having photos of you in your cap and gown, and the ones taken at the actual graduation ceremony likely won’t be top-notch. Get some professional photos of you in your full commencement gear!

Special Car

Do you have a car that brings back memories of a special family member like this photo of Ben with his grandpa’s vintage Corvette. Or maybe you want to include a photo of you and your first car.



Library or bookstore

If you’re especially focused on academics, surrounding yourself with books makes for fun photos! Your local library or a bookstore can be a great place to capture this aspect of your personality.

Bring along your pet

This requires some advance planning, but including your pet in your senior portraits is not only a fun way to commemorate your love for your four-legged friend. It can also help you feel more relaxed and at ease.



Studio photo session

All of your senior photos do not need to be outside or on location. I also shoot studio sessions and we can mix and match to make sure we capture your perfect senior photos!



No matter what you decide to include in your senior photos or favorite location to shoot your session remember the most important thing….Have Fun and Enjoy the Experience!
