The Basics

  • Water – It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, you need to bring a large water bottle to your shoot. Getting dehydrated at a photoshoot makes you miserable and no one wants that.
  • An Open Mind – This is so important! We can get so much more done if you come with an adventurous attitude and are at least willing to try some things “outside the box”.
  • Patience – Give both of us a little grace. It will likely take more than one take to get the shot. There are a lot of variables and I want them to all line up perfectly.

The Details

  • Wardrobe – I recommend bringing 3-4 changes of clothes. Let’s match up each outfit with the locations we’re planning to shoot at. It’s always great to have choices in the moment.
  • Important Items – In order to tell your story, it’s crucial to bring things that speak to your High School Experience. In this instance, he earned his Letterman’s Jacket in Tennis so he brought his jacket to showcase that memory. Cap and Gown is also a given. We can work to get both the serious more formal portrait, but also playful ones that show your emotion and personality.
  • Mom and Dad – I love having Parents at our Photoshoots. I only ask that they don’t take photos over my shoulder, which I’ve never had an issue with. Mom and Dad can keep the truck running so you can cool off and change clothes. It’s also a great opportunity for me to get to know more about you so your session can be even more personalized. If you don’t tell me, how am I supposed to know?

What is the best time of year to schedule Senior Portraits?

Dripping Springs Senior Sessions can be booked any time of the year. However, I do recommend either Fall or Spring when the weather is a bit more mild and we can tolerate working indoors and out. I have kids in the district so every one of these moments gets me in all those feels. I might shed a tear or two at your session, but trust me, they are always happy tears. I want you to feel AMAZING in front of my camera!
