Senior Pictures & 5 Reasons to Hire a Professional 

Senior pictures are a Texas Tradition! You are about to graduate and embark on a new journey in your life, whether to college or starting a career. High school graduation is all about leaving your childhood behind and moving into the next phase of your life as an adult. So exciting!

Professional senior portraits are the perfect way to mark this milestone in your life. These images give both you and your parents something to look back on in the years to come, as well as a way to share your excitement with friends and family about your accomplishments and the big changes to come in your life.


Capture your personality

For your parents, senior portraits were probably a little more formal—a nice dress or shirt and tie in a photo studio. Today, however, professional photographers who specialize in senior portraits are able to create images that are closer to works of art. Through skillful lighting, posing, and editing, a professional photographer can help capture images that show off your personality and the things you love.


Celebrate your accomplishments

You’ve worked hard to get to graduation, from studying for exams to participating in sports or other extracurriculars. You deserve to celebrate everything you’ve accomplished over the last four years of your high school career. A senior portrait session is a great way to celebrate all that you’ve done while looking forward to the future.


Remember this moment

Graduation is a huge occasion, and while you may feel like you will remember it forever, you may be surprised how quickly you might forget the feeling. Photos are a wonderful way to capture not only how you looked, but your personality and interests. Looking back on your senior photos in the future will allow you to remember that special time in your life years later.


Get the expertise you need

Anyone can snap a few photos, but if you want someone to make you look your absolute best, you need a professional photographer. They can help guide you through poses and even facial expressions to help get images you’ll love. Plus, their skill in lighting and framing photos, as well as editing, will give your photos the boost they need to be truly memorable.


Make your parents happy

While your senior photos are about you and your accomplishments, they also mark a huge moment in the lives of your parents as well. What better way to thank Mom and Dad for their support than to give them a memento celebrating how far you’ve come?


Graduating from high school is an important milestone in your life, which is why it’s so important to document this moment. You deserve quality images that you can look back on for years to come and maybe even show your own children one day. A professional senior session is an investment in memories and well worth it.
