It is that time of year again…students head back to the classroom. For many, it will be an exciting year as seniors. With senior years comes senior portraits. Fall is a great time of year to take these keepsakes.

There are plenty of outdoor locations where you can take these images, but it is always more fun to take these portraits somewhere that means something to the senior.  


For example, my niece did a lot of activities in high school that took her to the Kentucky State Capital. When I did her senior pictures in the fall the year before she graduated her mom suggested we do them at the state capital.

In the spring, my niece wanted to do some cap and gown pictures so we took some at Transylvania University where she was planning on enrolling the following school year.

 Another senior session I did was of a high school senior that was planning on attending The University of Kentucky after graduating high school. So we did some images of her around UK.

Taking photos around the college campus also works well for seniors graduating from college. These photos are of two seniors graduating from Eastern Kentucky University.

 Other great options are at the senior’s high school, churches, nearby parks, or clubs. If there is a location that means something to your graduating senior it is definitely worth exploring it as an option for their senior portraits.
