I've been wanting to do a Halloween photo shoot for a long time. So I put together this styled senior session with Morgan & Meighan. I decided to do the shoot in Richmond, VA at Hollywood Cemetery. Hollywood Cemetery is an old historic cemetery in Richmond with lots of trees, hills and really old statuary. It was a perfect location for a Halloween photo shoot.
Today's blog is all about Senior Portrait Products and how to choose the right products for you and your senior. I have been a portrait photographer for about 20 years and have been specializing in senior portraits for the last 5 years. I've learned a lot over the years and have seen many changes in the industry. Senior portrait products have definitely changed since I first started.
PRINTS & IMAGE BOXES
Prints have always been popular and still are very popular today. There are lots of sizes to choose from and the print quality that I offer my clients is outstanding and definitely worth every penny. Another great item clients love is a Custom Image Box. The image box holds a 5x7 print of every image from your senior session and is customized with images and text on the front, back and sides of the box. A great choice for storing your prints.
If you're Interested in wall art there are a few different products that my clients love. Standouts are a great choice to display your images. Prints are mounted to a lightweight foam board and edged in black or white. A very modern stylish way to showcase your senior portraits.
Another beautiful option for displaying your photos is a Canvas Wrap. Canvas Wraps give your images a contemporary high end look and make your senior photos look like a piece of art.
Storyboards are another popular choice among my senior clients. Storyboards give you the ability to display multiple images on one product. They are super fun and stylish and have a white or black edge.
Photo Books are a new modern way to display all of your gorgeous senior portrait images. Forget the old traditional album. I offer my clients a variety of Photo Book options, from hardcover coffee table books, to custom magazines and foldable accordion books. There's definitely a photo book that's a perfect fit for every client.
Hardcover Photo Books come in 2 sizes an 8x8 book and a 10x10 book. These books have lay flat binding and come in either a pearl or matte finish. An excellent choice for showing off your senior photos.
Accordion Books are super fun alternative to a traditional book. Accordions allow you to display multiple images in a fun small package. Great for displaying on a shelf or desk. They're available in 4x8 and 3x3.
Magazine Look Books are a fresh new option for my clients. You can now have your very own custom magazine to show off all of your different looks from your senior session.
Graduation Announcements are of course a must have product to purchase from your senior session. My grad cards are 5x7 printed on high quality pearl or matte paper and include white envelopes. Perfect as an invitation to your graduation ceremony or party.

When it comes to prom, the dress is undoubtedly a necessary part of prom. Always be on the lookout for your perfect dress because it can be found in the most unlikely place. It doesn’t have to come from a dress store specifically. It could come from your local Goodwill or the clearance rack at Target. You never know!
There are so many different styles and colors to choose from. Do you want a long flowing gown or a cute, short party dress. Bring your friends with you and try on lots of different styles to find the right dress for you. If you are willing to spend the extra cash or know a friend, getting your dress tailored to you can really enhance your body shape!
Ask friends and family for their unbiased opinions to help find the most flattering gown for your body type and skin tone but don’t make a decision solely on their opinions. Remember you want their guidance but you don’t need their approval!
Most importantly, be sure that your dress is something that reflects your style and personality, something that you will feel comfortable dancing the night away in. Don’t be discouraged to try something new and step out of your comfort zone. You are the most beautiful you when you are truly yourself!
