Lots of colorful blooms in the background in March.
When it comes to booking your senior photo session, those in Phoenix and Scottsdale tend to fall into a few categories.
First, there are the early bird planners. These are the seniors and parents who are on top of everything and do their senior session the summer before senior year. Because it's so stinking hot in Phoenix, these usually take place in July or August up north in Sedona, Flagstaff, or Prescott.
Next, there's the the average planner. These are the families who choose October and November for senior photos. Weather is cooler, the kids can wear fall clothes, and the school year is still somewhat fresh.
But then there's the next category where many find themselves in: Their senior photo session starts weighing on their mind at the start of the second semester and a new year.
From my standpoint, February and (early) March are the best months for senior photos. Here's why:
Not too hot for jeans, not too cool for a summer dress.
And that leaves us to the last category, the scramblers. They're calling photographers in April wanting to get a session in and get their images back as quickly as possible so they can send out their graduation announcements. Photographers get booked up quickly for late March and early April so it's harder for seniors to find an available date, making it more stressful for everybody.
So if you haven't booked your senior session yet, don't let yourself become a scrambler. Call or email me if you have any questions about booking.
