Senior Portrait Listening Lessons

I am honored to capture any kind of milestone but capturing a senior portrait ranks among the most memorable. The student is in the midst of being confronted with one of the biggest transitions as an emerging adult. The biggest tip that I can offer any photographer is to get to know the student. Don’t just ask questions while hiding behind your camera but talk to them and more importantly, LISTEN. This is an exciting time for them and they have a ton to say. I embrace these moments before I take the first picture and I am certain they do too! Aaron McGregor Photography

Capturing Confident Senior Portraits

You may think that Spring is a strange time of year to get your senior portrait taken but I think it is one of the best times. Traditionally, a senior will have their portrait taken at the beginning of their senior year or before it even begins. At that time, they are aware of the big transition that is upon them and may have an “idea” of where they will be in a year but they probably are not certain of their future after high school. Take this portrait at the beginning of their senior year and you may get a portrait of a lost soul with a fake smile and uncertainty in their eyes. Don’t get me wrong, a great photographer should be personable enough to make the student comfortable and bring out their dynamic personalities. On the other hand, when spring arrives chances are good that the uncertainty is all but vanished. Look at Jenna in these images and you can see passion, a spark of energy, her acceptance to move on to the next big adventure and an eagerness to embrace and tackle the world. My session fee is $135.00 and typically last an hour with unlimited change of clothes. With this fee, you get secured, online proofing, two mini albums to commemorate the occasion and an 8×10 enlargement. Please ask me about burning a DVD with print release and social media friendly files. If you are looking for more, please contact me because I am confident that I can deliver it! Best of luck to Jenna! Check out more portraits at my website!
