Senior High Photo Sessions

High School Senior photo sessions have changed since I was in high school. Previously, the chosen contracted photographer came to the school and each student had a 20-minute photo session with the studio lights set up in a school room. The prints were in color, black & white, or were hand painted in light oils by an artist. Over the years, schools have allowed seniors to choose their own photographer and the images were in a variety of locations, both on location and in studio.

Senior Photo Session locations

As a photographer in the Fort Myers area, most school senior photo sessions are outdoors. There are so many locations including resorts, country golf clubs and the beaches. Most high school students need to have the photo session just as they are about to enter their senior year.

Recent Senior Photo Session

My most recent senior photo session was on Marco Island. This island is in great condition after the hurricane of a few years ago. The family was staying at the Marco Island Marriott Resort. Over the years, I have enjoyed photographing family and wedding sessions at this beautiful resort.

I did photograph the MacDonald family some years ago at the same location. This year we concentrated on the senior photo session along with a few family photos. Here are additional photos from Marco Island.

Photo Session Details

As usual, I arrive at least 30 minutes early to view the location and find what I believe to be the best backgrounds for any photo session. I don’t want my clients waiting while I look for backgrounds. When they arrive, I have the schedule already prepared for the next hour of the photo session. So, the MacDonald family arrived as planned and we started with photos of the soon to be graduate.

Mom, Dad and sister were helpful in carrying changes of clothes and just checking that our senior’s photo session is just as perfect as possible. After an hour of photos, we ended up with 650 images that I will view and edit the best 90 or so images. We avoided beach and water pictures because at this time the seaweed was rolling in and covering much of the beach. My senior photo session fee sheet can be found on this page.
