When people begin the process of booking your senior photos, one of the primary questions they have is why they need more than just a few snapshots. They aren’t sure how to use the finished products, or how to really figure out what products they need or want. I understand! It can be overwhelming to decide what you want to use your images for, but gone are the days of yesteryear where you just stuck a flash drive in your dresser drawer and forgot about your senior photos!
-You can use them for a yard sign: In these days of the COVID pandemic, yard signs are becoming more common for graduating seniors. Last year, we offered beautiful yard signs, and I will announce soon if we will be offering those again this year. Your senior photos will be stunning on a yard or home sign, celebrating all the hard work you’ve done in high school.
-You can display them at your senior party: Senior photos look beautiful when framed and used as decor on tables, shelves, or as centerpieces. If you’re wondering if you want your face on every table, I understand! But you can choose some of your shots that are a bit further away for the ones being used. Some have used little clotheslines or photo clips to hang a timeline (of baby photos through senior photos) as a fun conversation point for partygoers….parents love that!
-You can include them in your graduation announcement: whether you do a more traditional invitation (the ones from the school that fold up and include tissue paper, a small photo and nameplate, etc) or a more modern one like a photo card with the date and time, the image is obviously the star! I recommend a high quality print source if you choose to print a modern type photo card, and can help steer you to the most professional labs so that you don’t get washed out skin tones or color inconsistencies. After all, if you hire a premium senior photographer, you want all your images to be premium!
-You can give them as gifts: When you order premium prints and products from our heirloom collections, we always encourage you to include loved ones like grandparents in the list of items you may want to buy. Grandparents, aunts and uncles, and close friends LOVE receiving senior photo products as gifts. Some great times to give these to them would be the holidays, at your graduation or graduation party, or as a thank you for being there for you in high school.
-You can display them in your home: Okay, this one feels obvious, but there are lots of things you may not have thought about when it comes to senior photos. They are actually a decor powerhouse and can do much more than just sit on the wall in a frame. You can create a beautiful, luxury album to put on a coffee table, or choose your favorite images to frame together as a focal point in a room. You can also consider bringing one with you to hang on your dorm room wall! It’s a great way to remember your high school years.
