My son is a senior this upcoming year and will graduate with the class of 2023. Last year he enrolled in a virtual academy in a Texas school district and therefore doesn’t actually attend high school in person. Since the pandemic in 2020, students and parents all around the country have learned that there are so many opportunities for high school students to complete their high school diploma. There isn’t just one way. And my son is one that realized the “typical” high school experience wasn’t for him.
But the fact that he doesn’t attend a typical high school isn’t keeping us from getting his senior portraits done. I will be honest with you and say that my son is not eager to get in front of a camera… much less spend an hour getting his senior photos taken by me. However, I do believe that every teen needs senior portraits. It doesn’t matter if your teen is more on the shy side or doesn’t actually attend a high school in person. Senior portraits are for everyone and I will tell you why.
First, senior photos are meant to represent some of the best years of your teen’s life. These images capture who they are right now… before they enter adulthood. You will look back at these images and remember their personality, their current style, and their favorites. Senior portraits are not just pictures worth posting, they are works of art that will be displayed in your home for years to come.
