It’s that time of year! High school seniors are looking toward their futures and gearing up for graduation. If you’re a senior — you’ve probably contemplated getting senior photos taken either for the yearbook, your friends and family, or all of the above! If you’re a parent — you’re likely so proud of your senior. They are officially entering adulthood, and you kinda wanna brag to the world, right?
If you’re still on the fence, here are our top 6 reasons why Senior photos are worth the investment.
1. They reflect who they are during a big change in their life
After high school graduation, everything changes. They grow and mature so fast, it’s hard to keep track. With graduation comes many life-changing decisions. Will they join the workforce right away or go to college? What will their major be? What is it they want to do with the rest of their life? They will meet new friends, new co-workers, and live on their own for the first time.
Capture who they are right now — because it’s all going to change so quickly. These are the last photos before they leave the nest and become adults. They’re on the cusp of greatness.
2. They need a yearbook photo
Sure, you can use the one with the same blue background they’ve had for the last 12 years from the same photo people the school has used for the last 50.
But those photos certainly don’t capture personality. And they certainly don’t show off who they are, or their interests. This is a chance to stand out, and be remembered.
3. They make great gifts
Tell the world! You’ve likely got your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends … send the photos to your great-aunt twice removed! You can make prints, or you can put the photos on keychains, canvases, etc.!
Plus, the more people you tell … the more likely your senior will get a congratulatory gift, right? 😉
4. They can serve as professional headshots as they enter the workforce
This is actually important! As soon as I started college, I applied at a local television station (my degree is in Broadcast Journalism). I had the immediate need for a headshot!
This goes for many other professions. Headshots are that little extra to attach to a resume to make them stand out from the crowd.
5. Great to use for Senior party invitations!
Everyone loves a good party, right? If you are hosting a celebration for your senior, even in this digital day and age, people still tend to send actual invites by mail. You can have your seniors picture printed onto the invite, or just put one of the photos in there with the invite! Maybe they haven’t had time to visit lately and will be shocked to see how much they’ve grown up!
6. As a reward / present for graduating!
Senior photos can be used for all of the things above, plus as a gift from you for your senior! Something that celebrates them and this exciting and ever-changing time in their life!
