School photos can capture everything about your child as they grow up and pass from grade to grade. While the traditional school portrait can handle this task, there is another way to better capture your child’s personality. The answer lies within a simple student portrait session.
What Is A Student Portrait Session?
A student portrait session is a session that capture your child’s personality rather than just their smile. These sessions include props, different locations, and anything that encompasses who your child is each year. Including hobbies, interests, or clubs into these types of shoots allows your child to be comfortable expressing who they are without forcing a traditional awkward pose.
Things To Consider
Sports: If your child takes part in any sort of sport, bringing along some simple props associated with how the game is played can change the dynamic in any photo. For instance, holding a football with the field in the background allows that single shot to tell the story that they play on the school team.
Hobbies: Fishing, hiking, bike riding, kayaking, paddle boarding, gaming you name it. Introducing these environments for a photoshoot will easily bring out the joy and comfort in anyone. A relaxed subject is a good subject!
Interests: Art, Photography, Business and so on. Any type of interest your child has that defines who they strive to be as they grow into an adult adds a great look and feel into a shot. This can be portrayed with associated props, outfits and even expression. Emotion is key!
