How to Choose a Senior Photographer

Your Senior Portraits will adorn the walls of your home and your family’s home for years to come. Your children will see them. Your grandchildren will recognize your 18-year-old self in your kinder, wiser face.
So, choosing the right photographer is a decision that will affect generations!
How do you choose one? Here are simple steps to choosing the right one.

Before looking for a photographer:

  • 1. Decide on your budget. Ask your parents what is affordable. Packages can range from a couple hundred dollars to thousands. Remember, photos are an investment.
  • 2. Ask yourself, “What do I want to DO with my pictures?” Will they be family gifts? Do you want canvases made? Wallet size? Albums made?
  • 3. Think about your personal style. Do you want pictures outside? Inside? Outfit changes? Sports uniforms?
  • 4. Decide on a timeframe for your photos. Your Senior year is busy! So pick a season to do your photos will you might be LESS busy than others (hint not during prom or finals season!). The best season is the summer before Senior year, before the busy seasons.

To Find a Photographer:

  • 1. Do a Google search to find local photographers in your local area, or ask friends for a good referral.  If you happen to know a Picture This by Dawn Senior Ambassador.. they can help you save $20.  
  • 2. Check out each website while asking these questions. Do you like the pictures on the website? Do they seem like your style? Vintage, edgy, natural? Indoor, outdoor? Is the price right? 
  • 3. Contact the photographer and ask some questions. Ask yourself, “Does this person make me feel comfortable? Could I feel relaxed in a photo session?” The more natural and relaxed you feel, the better your pictures will be. It’s okay to find someone you LOVE.  Please feel free to call Dawn (804) 514-4589 or email dawn@picturethisbydawn.com
  • 4. Ask questions about prices and packages available, and if they fit in with your plan for using your pictures.
  • 5. Will you get the proofs from your session? How many? How does editing work? Will all the images be edited? If not, how many?
  • 6. Also ask about scheduling. Will the photographer have time to fit you in and finish your photos when you need them?
  • 7. Go with the photographer you LOVE.

Before You Do Your Session:

  • 1. Talk with your photographer about setting, outfit changes and poses.
  • 2. Ask for advice about colors or outfits that work best for pictures.
  • 3. Try to get some sleep before your picture day. : )
  • 4. Be-YOU-tiful. It’s perfect to be yourself in your pictures.

This is a special time to celebrate. Finding the photographer you love will help you capture this rite of passage for you and your family. Good Luck!
