If you’re in the process of planning your senior photo session, you’re probably looking for a few theme and location ideas. Below are a few fun ideas to give you some inspiration:
Head to a New City If you’re really looking to find some interesting shoot locations, why not head to a completely different city to shoot your senior portraits? You never know what you will find once you start exploring.
Find a Botanical Garden or Park If you would prefer a beautiful backdrop of trees, flowers, and wide-open spaces, use one of the local parks or botanical gardens as a location for your shoot. You will find some great backdrops once you start exploring.
Enjoy an Amusement Park Using an amusement park as a location doesn’t mean you need to use rides as a backdrop, instead, incorporate the bright colors and bold patterns into your shots.
Take a Trip on a Boat If you are lucky enough to live near the ocean or a lake, why not use the water and a boat as the backdrop for your senior portraits?
Enjoy a Milkshake at a Themed Restaurant (like a drive-in or 1950's diner) Think jeans, white t-shirts, milkshakes and red lipstick. A classic 50’s diner will leave you with some truly memorable senior portraits.
A Need for Speed If speed is more your thing, you could incorporate a muscle car or racy motorbike into your senior session.
Head Downtown Take advantage of the graffiti, bridges and unique doorways in the city for an urban theme.
Curl Up with a Book If you simply love the library or your local bookstore, why not use it as a location for your senior portraits?
Enjoy a Cup of Coffee Coffee shops and cafes are great for senior portraits as they offer soft lighting and an interesting setting.
Find a Fun Business (like a laundromat or arcade) Want a more retro look and feel? Head to a place that no one is using for senior pictures and you will be surprised with the result.
Grab Your Mountain Bike Love being outside on your bike? Mountain biking locations make for some amazing backdrops.
Use a College Campus Most colleges have an array of interesting buildings, archways and beautiful outdoor areas that are perfect for a senior photo session.
