Hiring A Photographer For Your Child

By Stacey Burt

You have a child who is getting ready to graduate from high school. The one task that still must be completed before her graduation is having her senior pictures taken and there are many professionals in Green Bay WI that would love to take over this task for you. Every photographer will have his own style and technique so choose the professional who will take the type of photographs you have envisioned for your child.

Have your child choose several different outfits for the shoot. She will want to have both casual and formal photos for her graduating portfolio. Include casual wear, formal and semi formal clothing in the outfits to be worn. If full-length photos are to be taken, shoes are important also. Don't forget accent pieces such as hair accessories and jewelry. You may wish to have her hair done for the more formal shots first and then allow it to go back to its natural state for the less casual photos.

You can even add props for more pizazz. Choose the articles and background items that reflect her interests. Ask her to select and bring items that symbolize the activities she is in at school. If she is sports-minded, a basketball, tennis racket or golf club will work perfectly. A cheerleader can dress in her cheer outfit and bring along her pom-poms and megaphone.

If anyone you know is good with makeup, please invite her to the shoot. A touch of the right colors to the contours of her face can make all the difference in the world. Flaws can be hidden and the best features of the subject brought out to produce outstanding photos. It will also give the subject more confidence and she will feel much more attractive, resulting in quality proofs.

Ask the photographer to take special care in ensuring that the photos are as natural as possible. Give the professional some background on the student so he will have a general idea of what she is all about. And don't just have color shots taken. Black and white or sepia photos can be quite appealing and bring out details that may be missed in color photographs.

Explain to this professional how you wish to have photos that show the student's real interests and true personality. You are seeking a true and very accurate record of her last year in high school.

Ask the photographer to take unexpected and unplanned shots of your graduating student. Sometimes it is these poses that are the most authentic and the most appealing.

If you have many relatives and friends who live in other parts of the country, be sure to select poses that reflect the area in which you live. The wintry landscape and green spring landscape can become part of the photos as backdrops. You can also ask that school colors be featured with the plainer backgrounds for formal shots.

High school photos are important especially in the last year of school. Taking special care and time in selecting a professional photographer and the settings for the pictures will give you a quality outcome that can be viewed for years to come.
