Are you finally (or almost) a SENIOR at Westerville North High School?! Congratulations! I have been there and have so many memories from that special year with my friends. I'm looking forward to helping seniors make some new memories this year with a senior photo experience that stands out as one of the many highlights in their year. I know it can be hard to figure out where to begin the senior portrait process, so I'm here to help! By the way, junior year is NOT too early to begin planning for senior pics! Many students will book sessions for the Summer after Junior year.
How to Choose a Photographer for your Westerville North Senior
While I could write a super detailed post all about how to choose your senior photographer (and I will), I want to highlight some of the key overall considerations for you here. This is a major milestone experience of senior year, and something that only happens once in a lifetime. The truth is that the next time your senior will be professional photographed may be their wedding. This is about so much more than a yearbook photo - it's a chance to freeze time and capture who they are right now! An investment in a custom portrait session that is all about them is something you (and they) deserve in this pivotal year.
One of the key factors in selecting a professional photographer should be the ability to customize a session for your senior. Your senior is unique and deserves a session and images that genuinely reflect their personality and who they have become. We take the time to get to know our seniors through questionnaires and conversations with you and them before their session so we understand what they like and don't like and what they (and you!) want to get out of their session. They deserve more than someone showing up and introducing themselves for the first time the day of their session! We also provide a detailed prep guide as well as a style consult to help them prepare for their session so you don't have to figure it out alone. With over 12 years photographing in the Columbus area, we know so many great spots for sessions. Your senior won't be filtered into the same places with the same backgrounds as every other senior at our studio. Another factor in selecting a senior portrait photographer is the overall senior photography experience. In addition to the preparation mentioned above, we provide complimentary age-appropriate professional hair and makeup so our seniors don't have to stress doing it themselves on the day of the session. We also fully edit our images with a timeless, classic, clean edit so you will always see the teen you see right now. Acne, bruises, and temporary scratches will be removed, so there is no need to stress about a breakout that morning or a minor sports injury the day before. We also work directly with our families after the session to help them choose professional print products, albums, and wall art so there is no need for them to research where and how to get prints. We are proud to offer flexibility and variety in our collections, including high-resolution digital images, so you can choose your investment level and purchase only what you want.
Does Westerville North High School have Yearbook Requirements for Senior Pictures?
At the time of this writing, Westerville North is one of the Columbus, Ohio area high schools that does allow submission of a professional senior portrait of your choosing into the yearbook as long as it meets certain criteria. For example, some schools require portrait orientation images. Some schools allow full-body images, but some require images to be headshot style only. It is important to verify criteria before your senior session even if you had a sibling graduate from WNHS recently. March 1 has been the submission deadline in the past for Westerville North, but please be sure to check with the school this year to make sure your selected image meets the criteria and the deadline. Your senior session with Westerville Senior Photography will provide you with many images to choose from, so you get to select the one that you want to be remembered by in the yearbook!
Senior Pictures of Westerville North Students
Westerville Senior Photography is one of the premier senior portrait providers in the Columbus, Ohio area. Each year we photograph multiple students from Westerville North High School and many other schools in Central Ohio for senior pictures. One question we are often asked by Westerville students is if their session must take place in Westerville. Absolutely not! We are all about custom sessions that best reflect your personality and vision. If this means going downtown, or to a bowling alley, or out into the country, let's do it! There are also many location options in and near Westerville, both popular spots and also unique almost hidden locations if you'd like to stick close to home. Don't worry, we will walk you through all of this and help you choose the location that is right for you! Some Westerville North students choose to wear their WNHS letter jacket in a few images to show off their varsity letter. Others will bring their instrument or sports equipment to reflect how they spent much of their time at Westerville North. Still, others simply follow our wardrobe guide in choosing outfits that reflect their personal style and photograph well. Whatever you envision for your senior portrait session, we can help make it a reality!
