September is a great time to have Senior Pictures taken. Do you know why? Because the heat wave has ended, and the cold weather hasn't reached us yet! Beautiful Fall colors will be showing soon, and they make a wonderful background for photos. Can you guess one more reason September makes a great choice for Senior Pictures? To beat the time change! Some of the reasons I enjoy Fall are the brisk, cooler weather makes enjoyable to be outdoors, Friday night Football is in high gear, bonfires & hot chocolate come out to take off any chill. What do you think of when you think of Fall? As you prepare for Senior Pictures, a few things to keep in mind, communication with your parent(s) is key, as well as with the photographer you choose to take your photos. This will ensure everyone is on the same page, and that your Senior Picture Experience is epic for you. Are you involved in extra curricular activities? Maybe you want to incorporate that into some of your photos. Be sure you discuss with your chosen photographer what your extra curricular activities are so they can suggest what props you may want to bring to get the best photos. There's a myth that the more props you use the better; that's not always true. You are hiring a professional photographer, trust them to know how to provide you with the best Senior Pictures Experience. Relax and enjoy the moment. What should I wear? Clothing is important, and I discuss this with my clients at our first meeting, which is when your parent(s), you, and I would meet for half an hour to discuss details of your photo session. If we decide that we want to work together, then your parents would sign a contract to hire me, and pay a retainer fee of $50.00 to reserve your date/time for your photo session.At this meeting, we would discuss location possibilities and you would choose from the choices provided. We would also discuss how many wardrobe changes are allowed, and I would suggest wardrobe options. Any questions you, or your parents have would be answered. Joyce Geiser Photography would be honored to shoot your Senior Pictures. Contact me to schedule your appointment today to get the date/time of your choice.
