A senior portrait session is not as formal as yearbook photography, and it doesn’t have to be in the school. However, it’s called high school senior photography, because it marks that particular moment in a teen’s life when they graduate.

So, even if it’s not the theme for the entire photo shoot – a few pictures in a gown and holding their diploma are always a good idea.

2. Add Confetti

When brainstorming senior photos ideas, think of this word as a focus.

High school graduation is a milestone that separates the kid from the grown-up. This can mean different things for each person; however, freedom is one of those things.

It’s the moment where you get to decide where to go, what to study and what you’ll become – you have the freedom to be anything you want to be. Try to capture that spirit in your images.

4. Shoot at golden hour

No matter how good your senior pic poses may be, it won’t turn out well with poor lighting.

The best time of the day to photograph outside is the golden hour. It gives a soft light and a warm tone to your images.

Golden hour happens the first hour after sunrise and the last hour before sunset – make sure you schedule your senior photoshoots around this time.

5. Include siblings

Having a picture together at this time of their lives is something they’ll treasure forever.

Friends are the best part of high school life. Including one or more of your best friends in the senior portrait photoshoot can be a great idea.

9. Sitting down

Posing is unnatural for most teenagers; having them standing up can result in a stiff portrait – instead, you can ask them to sit down.

Many senior picture ideas allow your client to be sitting. If you’re in a natural setting, they can be sitting under a tree. In urban settings, they can sit on a bench or a low wall.

It all depends on the mood, personality and outfit of the session.

10. Letting go

As proud as parents can be to have a senior child, it’s also a moment of nostalgia because teens become adults – they often move out of the house for college, change interests and grow up.

These feelings are part of life, and capturing emotion in senior portraits is important.

11. Props

Props are a great way to make senior photos fun and interactive. You can have a selection of props that are related to the graduation topic, or you can use personal items from your clients.

12. Pop the cork

Capturing a bubbly bottle opening and showering everyone is a classic scene of celebration.

For senior photo sessions, I’d recommend you use non-alcoholic beverages. Even if it’s legal in some places for people to drink when they turn 18 years of age, it’s probably not a good idea that you are the one encouraging it. But, if you want a departure from the more traditional senior photo poses, try this one

13. The jump

Running out of senior photo ideas? Go simple! One of the most popular photo ideas amongst teens is to capture them in mid-air when they’re jumping.

You can do this with their graduation gown or not; it’s still a fun idea to break the ice and loosen up your model.

14. Details

Not all portraits need to show the face. Make a few close-up shots to capture some details that are important for the senior or the family. It can be the diploma, the family heirloom that passes on from generation to generation, etc.

Talk to your client to find out what things have a special meaning for them.

15. Prom date

Every parent is proud of their senior daughter or son, and they want to have a picture to show to their family and friends – or hang in the living room.

Most often than not, the style of the picture they like is not the same as the images the senior wants!

Try to find a compromise in which both parties are happy. It can be a family portrait with the senior still attired with their graduation gown and cap.

19. Casual outfit

20. On the road

Many seniors celebrate graduation by taking a trip. You can choose to photograph your model in a car or packing their suitcases. It’s an idea that also works conceptually because it’s the beginning of the road into adult life.

If you choose to photograph from car to car, it can be a very fun photoshoot; just make sure to put safety first. If adventure runs in your veins and you want to show it, senior pictures ideas like this are the way to go.

21. Backpack

Posing hands and making them look natural is very difficult.

If you ask your senior models to do something with their hands, they’ll feel more comfortable, and they’ll have something to focus on.

Making heart hands is a fun and trendy photo that they can share on their social media.

27. Black and white

Black and white photos give a special feeling to photographs. We tend to associate it with professional photography or fine arts; that’s why most clients will be happy to have a few of their pics in greyscale.

28. Looking over the shoulder

A good head-shot should always be on your shot list. Most-likely, all the headshots they have at this point are yearbook photos that don’t make them look their best.

Instead, give them one that captures their beauty and vibrance to use in their social media, college or job applications, etc.

30. Close up

Making a close-up portrait is also a good idea. You can make it more original by adding props or having the model cover a part of the face.

Up until this point, a teenager’s room is their own world. It’s their private space that represents much of their personality.

After senior graduation, they often move away, so making part of the photoshoot in their room will help you to capture the essence of who they are.

35. Use color

The best senior pictures are the ones that look natural and capture the model’s personality. The pose plays a big part in getting this look. Here are some senior posing tips that look best in front of the camera.

1. Sitting down – Most high school seniors are not professional models; having them standing up and trying to pose everything from their feet to their hands can lead to awkward and stiff positions. Instead, have them sit down to make them more comfortable and relaxed. If you are looking for poses for senior pictures, this timeless classic works great.

2. Sideways and looking at the camera – Looking straight at the camera is not always flattering. It can make the body look bulky even on the slimmest person. Ask your subject to turn the body sideways and then turn the head towards the camera. This is a great pose, especially for senior girls.

3. Leaning – Standing upright can feel forced on a senior portrait because it’s too formal. If you ask them to lean back against a wall or lean towards you as if they are looking into the lens, you’ll get a much more natural picture.

4. Moving – A great way to make a creative senior portrait is to capture movement. They can be dancing, twirling or playing sports.

5. Take care of the handsHands are always awkward and difficult to pose. Suggest your model an activity, ask them to put their hands on their pockets, or give them props to play with.

6. One foot in front – One of the timeless rules in photo poses is to put one foot forward. This way, you’ll be adding natural curves to the body and making the rest of the pose flow naturally. It will also elongate the legs, creating a flattering effect.

7. Hugs – In most senior photoshoots, you can include other people for some of the pictures. This can be the proud parents, the siblings or a best friend. For these photos, a hug is always a nice and natural pose.

These are some senior picture poses that you can use in most cases – remember to experiment with others to make your photos unique.
