4 Reasons to do Senior Portraits in Summer

It’s finally SENIOR YEAR and you need to decide when to do your senior photos. Here are 4 reasons why SUMMER is the best time for this experience!

Warm weather! Summer is perfectly warm from an early morning session through the early evening hours. There’s no need to bundle up or worry about red noses form the cold.




Beautiful, golden sunlight! Let’s face it – Ohio has a lot of gray, rainy days – especially in the Fall and Winter. By doing your session during the Summer months, you increase the chances of that gorgeous golden sunlight making an appearance during your session. We have a lot less rain reschedules during the Summer months, which means you are more likely to have your session as planned.




Scheduling is easier! Your senior year is going to be full of practices, shows or games, testing, college visits, and many more milestone events. Having your photographs done before you begin your crazy busy senior year can help you enjoy it more because you are not stressed trying to fit it in. The days are long, so we have more hours to schedule than when it is dark by dinner.




Flowers & Greenery! Summer is full of life! From the blooms of rose bushes and daylilies to full, leafy trees and shrubs, you can find so much in nature to set the stage for your portraits during the Summer. We often have various color options for floral backdrops which can add variety to your image portfolio. The grass is green and the trees provide some shade on the warmer days.
