10 Reasons to get your Senior Portraits done in the Fall - Southern Utah Senior Photographer

Hey Guys!!
I'm busy getting ready for baby girl to come and I thought I would just drop a quick little note to you!

After I have my baby, I'm ready to jump back into photography full force and I have such great ideas and goals!!

So today we're talking about why you should get your Senior photos done in the Fall. I want to encourage my clients…and potential clients…to book their High School Senior Portraits either the summer before or the fall of their Senior year (Summertime won't work for me this year, but next year for sure!).    For some reason, most people have a hard time grasping that concept… so I've decided to put together a list of reasons WHY!!

8. The weather is perfect!
I know what you are thinking, "It can still be hot in August and September!" BUT, with the timing of perfect lighting, we are shooting when the temperature is just right. Not too hot, and not chilly either! And the angles of the sun are much more pleasing!

7. Colors
In the fall, you can have gorgeous greens, and luscious yellows, reds, and oranges. If you wait until the spring, colors are just barely peeking out and everything still looks kind of dead from Winter. That's one of the main reasons I love shooting in the fall!

6. Spring weather
It can be so unpredictable!! I know this past spring I had to reschedule quite a few sessions because it was raining. Also, it seems to be so much more windy in the Spring. (Just my opinion! haha even though it seems like it's ALWAYS windy!)

5. Students don't change THAT much between Fall and Spring....especially at this age. Yes, hairstyle may be a little different, clothes preferences may change, but for the most part...the students still look like themselves!

4. The student will have a tan!! I know it may seem like a little detail, but just a little "sun kissed skin" will have you feel a little more confident. I commonly get asked, "can you make me a little more tan?" LOL 

3. Most people don't think about doing senior portraits until Spring, so photographers get booked full pretty quickly! If you're set on getting a certain photographer you love, you could run the risk of not being able to get a session with them. And you wouldn't want that.

2. If you get your senior portraits in the Fall, you'll have beautiful, professional photos of yourself to use and show off all year long! Applications, auditions... Facebook... You know. If you're going to get them done anyway, why wait all those months? I have had clients tell me they were so glad they did their senior session early because they had no idea they would need the images so often throughout their senior year.

1. And drumroll....... You will be crazy busy in the Spring! April and May are busy months for Seniors and you will want to get those graduation announcements out in time! And you will want to be able to just enjoy the last month of your Senior year and have all of the pictures and announcements taken care of!
