/ high school senior portrait photography

While I am relatively new to high school senior pictures, I definitely well seasoned portrait photographer here in Madison, WI. After a number of recent requests to photograph high school senior portraits, I decided to give it a try.

Quickly, Madison high school senior portraits became one of my favorite type of portraits to photograph.

I love the ambition, excitement, anxiety of high school seniors who are about to graduate and take on the world. Kids, who are about to leave the house, enter adulthood and start life on their own.

Given all above, photographing someone in life’s crossroad is a main idea behind high school senior pictures.

My photography studio, located in near proximity to Downtown Madison, serves as a great spot for meetings and in studio portraits.

Picturesque state capital of Wisconsin provides plenty of opportunities and backgrounds for high school senior portraits outdoors.

Let’s take a look into my high school senior portrait philosophy and see whether us teaming up would be a good fit.

/ how I see senior portrait photography?

Honestly, I approach high school senior portraits exactly the same way I would approach any other portrait. Client and I discuss the best way to show their strengths and tell their story. We talk location, outfits, and other possible approaches for the photo shoot.

/ what is my goal when photographing a high school senior?

As a portrait photographer, I am all about who your kid really is. Generally speaking, do not expect any sky swapping, extensive retouching, etc. My goal is to capture young adult in that particular time of their lives for how she or he is. Show them during the time of changes, discoveries and upcoming new challenges.
