Kellen and his mom (who happens to be my husband’s aunt!) met me at our studio last week for his senior photos. It was a gorgeous night for July, when heat can sometimes be an issue! We capture some studio photos for those classic senior portraits, then headed to SIUE campus for some outdoor photos as well. The more we follow this plan of doing some studio photos first, then heading outside, the more I love it! It’s a perfect opportunity for our seniors to get multiple looks, and also change outfits in a place that is comfortable.

Studio senior portraits really do allow for such classic, timeless photos! I love getting outside as well, and could never choose between the two options. Plus, sometimes seniors do have a need for both, depending on how the photo will be used. By doing both studio photos, and outdoor photos, it allows us to appeal to every generation in the family as well! Grandma is happy, mom is happy, and the senior is happy, too!
