When is the best time of year for my senior portraits?
Senior Portraits can be taken year-round in Texas! Each season offers unique advantages and backgrounds, just make sure to book ahead so you get your preferred season! Be aware of your school's deadlines, many schools have Yearbook Tribute ads deadlines that are due in November.
Look through the galleries below to see samples from each season, which one fits your style best?
Want bright greens and wildflowers for your senior photos? Spring is your season!! Golden fields and Redbuds bloom in mid-March, Bluebonnets end of March thru mid-April, Azhalias and Wisteria first half of April, and a variety of other wildflowers bloom all the way thru late-May. Spring is perfect if you want your college t-shirt, cap/gown, and prom dress in your photos! Keep in mind there's also a higher chance of reschedules due to unstable weather.
Summer in Texas can be hot, but the light is beautiful! Summer is the perfect season if you want to get your senior portraits done while you have your summer tan and be ready for all the school/senior deadlines! We usually reschedule if the temperatures are way too hot, and take photos mostly in the shade until sunset!
Autumn vibes and cooler temperatures make Fall one of the best seasons for senior portraits in Texas! Fall colors begin in October, peak in November, and occasionally stick around until the first week of December. If you're doing yearbook tribute ads, you may need to book earlier, deadlines tend to be in November for a lot of schools! Just like Spring, there's a higher chance of reschedules due to unstable weather conditions.
(DECEMBER - MID MARCH)
Winter weather can be more unpredictable but there are plenty of days that are beautiful! All urban locations work great and there are a couple of natural locations that are also available. In order to keep sessions fun and enjoyable, I only take photos on sunny, non-windy, days! Getting them done before the Spring means you can be ready for sorority recruitment and send out announcements sooner.
