It's that time of year when 17-year-olds all across the country need to schedule a photo shoot for their senior portraits.
You may already have a few appointments on the books. Or maybe you're thinking about adding these shoots to your freelance repertoire. Either way, I have some helpful information to help you prepare.

I Have Movies Too!
Take a look at this video titled, "Shooting a portrait, starting with natural light" from my lynda.com training, Photographing High School Senior Portraits with Derrick Story.

I enjoy capturing portraits of teens. I hope this information will help facilitate a great time and beautiful images for your shoots too.
