When should I get my senior portraits taken?
The summer in between your junior and senior year is the best time to have your session. Many local school yearbooks require your yearbook picture to be submitted shortly after your senior year begins. Studio One works with many schools in the area to make sure your portrait meet the yearbook requirements. If you are in fall sports it's importtant to consider what your schedule will be like after practice starts and get your appointment scheduled early. Sometimes people wish to have fall color for their session. With digital images the leaves can turn golden brown without it actually being autumn. It's better to be photographed before the leaves drop off the trees. This can happen quite suddenly if we get a windstorm.
Who should I go to for my senior portraits?
