The difference Between a Senior Portrait Session and Class Pictures

OMG! It’s senior year. You have watched your child grow from a bundle of baby blankets, and itty bitty clothes, into an amazing young adult in what seems like the bling on an eye. This year, your baby will graduate from high school and head off on their own for new and amazing adventures.

For seniors, this year is a whirlwind of lifelong friendships, emotional goodbyes, the last game, the last class. It’s also a time of exciting beginnings and celebrations of accomplishments. For parents, its a time of excitement, and reflection, and probably a lot of tears {if you are anything like me}! Time seems to be flying, and neither of you want to miss a moment, and forget any of this! With big changes coming, what better way to celebrate this period in your lives than with portraits? And not just regular pictures, a custom experience. For most of these young adults, this will be their last major portraits until they get married {don’t even get me started on that emotional rollercoaster}!

A lot of area high schools offer studio sessions for the graduating seniors. And while, the black cape and pearls, or suit and tux, is a requirement, adding custom portraits will give both parents and seniors an extra experience as well as beautiful custom images. The school required images are usually very stiff, and rigid, and lacking in any customization. Its usually like a “cattle call” of students, and if you have been, you know! Its loud, overwhelming and usually not custom. You are just a number to them. Our goal, at KHP studios, is to give each senior a fun, custom experience. With hair and makeup included, and fabulous locations that fit both the seniors style and personality. Our goal with every session is to capture where you are at this moment, and tell YOUR story. We have a modern fashion style, but not overly trendy, the result is classic, timeless photos. We make the process easy, while guiding you, so that the experience is fun, personal. The end result? Your senior will see their amazing accomplishments, and their inner and outer beauty, leaving them feeling confident and true to who they are for years to come. See, we know that years from now, when your baby’s own baby picks up that album to glance through it, they will see their parents high school story and who they were at this exciting time. What better gift to give your future grand children?

And as important as that heirloom album is, we also know digitals matter to the current seniors. All of our collections include digital images for printing and sharing. We are also here to guide you in what to do with your images. Again, making this once in a lifetime process FUN for everyone!

And trust me, I know this year is busy, I feel it too. But we can’t go back and relive this year, and neither can the seniors. Make it count, don’t worry we’ve got this!
