Seniors want a yearbook portrait that tells their story
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
Take a look at this article from the Des Moines Register this week, which takes a look at trends with yearbook senior portraits.
A couple of photographers in the Des Moines area are quoted discussing the move away from simple head and shoulder senior portrait shots and toward “lifestyle photography.”
What exactly does that mean? Well, let photographer Chuck Weber explain. “They want to be out where they live their lives. If they’re into cooking, they want to be in the kitchen cooking. If they’re into racing, they want to be at the Iowa Speedway in their race car. If they’re into sports, they want to be not just at the field, but sliding into home plate or hitting a home run. There’s a lot more action,” Weber said in the article.
What kind of senior portrait did you have in your yearbook? Does your school still place restrictions on the type of portraits that can appear in the yearbook?
