We are the premier San Antonio portrait studio for high school senior portraits, senior pictures for yearbooks and professional photography
Let us take a moment to give you the information you need when choosing a portrait artist to create your high school senior portraits.
You want the best senior portrait experience, but you also want a portrait that will last, have a timeless style and be beautiful enough that you will want it to pass on to your own children.
1. The first thing that is very important to realize is that 'senior pictures' are what people share on phones - senior portraits are what you see on the walls of their home.
Most high school students care about the photos they share on their phones and this is great, but, they just won't be around for very long. Parents of soon to graduate students probably have a very different view and one of the key issues that makes a true senior portrait is that it is 'investment worthy'. That means, it is created by a print artist, on archival, richly pigmented canvas or fine art paper and presented in a way that it will have a life expectancy of at least a century or more.
2. Would you believe that a common objection we hear to senior portraits to be hung on the walls of the home is from the senior themselves?
"It feels funny to see a senior picture of myself on the wall!"
This is one of those moments where our suggestion is that they trust their parents on this issue. Think about it, at 18 you are in the prime of life, doing things that will echo down through the years. It is a milestone! A fine art senior portrait that commemorates this moment is not just a nice to have but one of those timeless possessions that will be treasured for the rest of your life.
3. A high school senior portrait is a tremendous opportunity to tell a story
Because graduation is often such a pivotal time in a high school student's life, there is almost always a wonderful story to tell through senior portraits
Extracurricular activities, sports, music - you name it, the opportunities to tell this story through a professional portrait are many. We love hearing and sharing the passions of seniors as they prepare for the next step in their lives. Not only that, we get to be students ourselves. There are always the latest trends and fashions to learn about and capture photographically that a senior portrait session is never boring!
4. The senior portrait session is also a very important occasion to create a family portrait
Each of our senior portrait sessions includes a complementary family portrait session.
Why is this important? As we said earlier, the senior portrait is a tremendous milestone in life and frequently families go through some pretty big changes after one of the children graduates from high school; either there is a new college, maybe work, or often, a college that is out of the city or state.
In case you can't tell, fine art senior portraits are something we are very passionate about and love to create!
We take our mission statement, 'Because your story deserves to be preserved forever' very seriously and we create fine art portraits for just this reason - because they will be around for the long haul.
