Does your high school require you use their studio for your yearbook photo? Boo. That’s friggin lame.
I mean, from a professional standpoint I can see some benefit to the technical aspect of it all. Laying out the yearbook is a pain in the @&&. If you can guarantee that every image your receive for your spreads is perfectly sized, that’s a benefit, right?
Ugh. Wrong. Your senior year is your time to start really exploring your individuality and preparing for making real-world decisions. Decisions like who you trust to really capture your personality so when you look back at your 17/18 year old self 5, 10, 50 years from now, that fresh face is smiling your real smile and your eyes are shining full of life and possibility. Not the dull mat of mandatory studio lights.
The solution? Do the bare minimum for school, it’s generally included, and then STILL DO IT YOUR WAY! I mini-senior session with me will help you get the best of both worlds!
