Intentional Senior Photos | Westerville Senior Photographer
I recently had the pleasure of working with Savana, a Westerville North High School senior, who had a clear vision of what she wanted. Her whole session revolved around creating intentional senior photos.
Savana knew she wanted a few professional headshots created during her senior photo session. But she also wanted to tie in her sense of fashion and go from dressy to casual in her photos.
So let’s dive in, and I’ll share her why behind wanting headshots, how she used them, and how we personalized her session.
Preparing for Intentional Senior Photos
Before Savana arrived for her senior photo session, we discussed her vision, outfit ideas, and location.
She had three main things she wanted out of her session.
To showcase her sense of fashion
Outdoor photos at a specific location
Knowing all of her ideas ahead of time helped us plan and execute the perfect senior session for her.
Creating Professional Headshots as a High School Senior
I’ll be honest - this was the first time I’ve had a senior ask for headshots. But the idea behind it was brilliant!
She knew that she would be attending a scholarship fair, networking with new people, and applying for scholarships. And she wanted to stand out among the sea of applicants.
Knowing she wanted a competitive edge, we worked together to create a few stand-out headshots. She brought in a cute pink jacket, and we created fun images that show her love of fashion and her personality.
After her session, she ordered business cards with her photo on them, and she was able to easily pass them out as she met with new people and applied for scholarships. She was also able to update her online presence to look more like a professional young adult than a high school senior.
Embracing a Fashion-Forward Style
The second thing Savana really wanted for her senior photos was to highlight her love of fashion, which I would call a mix of glam and farmhouse.
She chose to show off her glam side in the studio and then dress more casually for the outdoor shots.
