If you’ve got a high school senior, you are probably already charging your camera’s battery and making space on your memory card for the hundreds of pictures you’ll be taking. When the day comes, you’ll take pictures of your soon-to-be graduate getting dressed, getting in the car, walking out in the line, receiving the diploma, and after photos with every single family member and friend. All this is great and should definitely be done, but kids only graduate high school once, so why not get a little creative with the pictures. Here are five creative shots you should really take outside the normal “pose and smile” pictures.
**Hint: If your Grad can keep their cap and gown, opt for a mini-photoshoot on a different day than the graduation. You will have parties, guests, and all kinds of craziness going on so save your kid and yourself the extra stress by shooting another day.
I hope you are inspired to think outside the box when taking graduation pictures this year. The photos of your child standing with family and friends are great, but featuring the little things really help keep the memory alive.
Special thanks and congratulations to my “baby” brothers (pictured) who graduated last year and have just finished their first year of college. I’m sure they love all my photoshoots, but they powered through them like champs.
