Palm Spring Photo Session ~ Tracy Woods Photography ~ Camas, WA ~ Senior Photographer

May 28, 2021

 This is my favorite photo session ever, beautiful Anna at Joshusa Tree and the Saguaro Hotel. We have so many beautiful locations in the PNW, but it was so much fun to get some different scenery, taking  photos of my girl who started my passion for photography and always my favorite subject!

10 Tips for Finding a Great Senior Photographer

Once upon a time, a high school senior could look forward to a traditional portrait – girls wearing a black drape, guys in a classic tuxedo. But times have changed!

A professional senior portrait is an opportunity to highlight your accomplishments, personality style. Given the importance of the occasion, choosing a photographer is no easy decision. To help you in the selection process, we’ve compiled 10 tips to assist in making your pick.

1. Find your photography style.

At such a busy time in your life, it’s easy to choose a photographer based on what a BFF or classmate recommends. But your senior portrait is about YOU! So find a photographer whose style suits you. To do this, review and research a variety of portfolios and images to determine what you like – and what you don’t. While someone parasailing or taking a reflective walk through the woods may make a great photo, would you want that to be YOUR image? Does that tell YOUR story? As you peruse images, don’t stop until you find something that speaks to you.

2. Make a connection.

The connection you feel with your photographer is just as important as your style. You want a photographer with whom you’re comfortable, someone who is going to take the time to get to know you and ask you what you want out of your session. This doesn’t happen in five minutes, so spend some time seeking out and establishing the right connection.

3. Check credentials.

It’s your time to shine so why not hire the best?! Professional photographers have unique skills and training in artistry and technology, so they know how to capture your unique personality and interests in images. The pros have standards to uphold and membership in professional associations like PPA Professional Photographers of America).

4. To Photoshop or not?

Ask a photographer about retouching, what they typically do and don’t do, when and why. Because, while no one is perfect, it may take just a quick computer brush stroke to make your photos look amazing! On the other hand, you don’t want images so retouched you no longer recognize yourself! So, don’t be afraid to ask about what happens behind the scenes.

5. Check their reviews.

Good customer service should be high on your list. This is when references, reviews and testimonials can help you find a photographer that will deliver the customer experience you wan

6. Notice how they use light.

Any good photographer knows that the key to great images comes from having the right lighting. As a customer, it’s not your job to know F-stop from aperture, but as you review portfolios and websites, pay special attention to the photographer’s use of light – in doing so, you’ll see how an expert can use light to take an image from OK to amazing!

7. Tuck your chin and throw your shoulder:

You’ve probably been there – a photographer asks you to position your head “here” and your shoulder “here,” and suddenly, you feel like you’re in a bad game of Twister. A good photographer shouldn’t manhandle you, but gently guide you through a series of poses. Seniors want to look ‘natural,’ feel like themselves. It is the photographer’s knowledge of lighting and how to flatter a figure that makes all the difference in posing.

8. Make sure they offer options.

As you shop, look for someone who can offer multiple options. Look at albums, collages, wall frames and everything in between. Discover what you like - informal, casual, fun and/or serious shots. A good photographer will take your ideas, show you what will work, what may not and why. Also, don’t be afraid to ask to see the whole enchilada - the entire photoshoot. This gives you greater insight as to the photographer’s whole body of work, not just selected images.

9. Make mom happy!

A senior session is all about you but, parents (and their wallets) typically have a vested interest in this experience. Parents and teens should be involved in the process and the decision. As a senior celebrates this milestone, it’s also about the people and support system that helped make it happen.

10. Set a budget.

While you may think you can’t put a price tag on the experience, actually, you can and your photographer will. Again, this is where parents most likely come into play. But understand that everything has a budget and a cost. Often things are flexible, and you can probably switch out and substitute things that are really important to you.
