Senior Portraits Q & A

Here are some frequently asked questions about senior portraits and some helpful insight for planning your session!

Why have Senior Portraits made when I already get them for the yearbook?

Did you know that you don’t HAVE to use your yearbook photography for your senior portraits? It’s a little known secret that we’re blowing the whistle on! Your senior year is special and your senior portraits should be too. At Sherri’s Portraits we make sure your senior portrait session is as unique as you! This means no cheesy poses in front of a neon backdrop ;) Instead, we encourage you to show off your style, your hobbies and even your pets! You can have your cap and gown photos made by those “other photographers” and then let us create a session that truly captures who you really are. Visit our Senior Portrait Gallery to see some examples of our past senior portrait sessions!

What should I wear for my senior portraits?

Great question! While we want you to show off your individual style, certain colors and styles do tend to photograph better than others. We recommend solid colors and well fitting, tailored pieces. Loose, baggy clothing doesn’t photograph well and busy, patterned prints can be distracting! For some outfit suggestions, check out our What To Wear Style Boards where we showcase a variety of options for both girls and guys!

What should I bring to my senior portrait session?

Bring a few outfits to change into as well as some personal props! If you play a sport or an instrument, bring it along! Some people like to pose with the cards and others even bring their pets. Our goal is to show off who you really are so think about which aspects of your personality you want us to capture the most. We’ll talk about this more in your consultation so that you have some solid ideas of what you want to showcase during your session!

Where are senior portraits taken?

Your senior portraits can be taken in studio or on location. Most seniors choose to have their session at the location of their choice such as their football field, a favorite hangout, or even wakeboarding at the local lake. Choose somewhere that shows off who you are and what is important to you!

What products do you offer?
