5 Tips For A Summer Senior Session | Harrisburg City

You literally JUST finished your Junior year in high school and posted on Instagam that you’re a SENIOR and I’m telling you to schedule your Summer Senior Session. WHAT? This can’t be right, can it? Yes. Yes it is. There’s so many reasons to book your session before you actually start your senior school year but I’m going to give you just 5 to start with.

Summer Senior Sessions


Summer Senior Sessions let you ROCK those Sunglasses in your sessions. You can have a good reason to tell mom that you need to wear shades. Just holding them gives your hands something to do in pictures and helps you to not feel as uncomfortable. Hands are tough to pose. Sunglasses help.

2. Tan Lines

You’ve been at the beach and pool for a month or more and are sporting some beautiful skin tones and possibly even freckles (which are one of my favorite features). Do your freckles come out after some sunshine?

3. Longer Days

Longer days mean that you have more time to prepare for your session. It also means no stress of school during the day before your session that evening. It also allows for light later in the day so that you have more time to get those EPIC senior images. Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg and surrounding Central PA  has amazing locations to use and summer gives us longer days to use them. Not to mention, it warms up the water and lets us get in for some amazing shots in the water! And makes rain warm to dance in!

4. Weather

With the topic of longer days comes nicer weather. Usually less rain means less rescheduled sessions. If you look at the Spring we had this year, you see what I mean. Do you know how many sessions I had to reschedule? Goodness. I thought the rain in Central PA would never end! Finally, it’s June and we’re on to summer and sunshine! And still occasional rain.

5. Make a Check mark on your Senior To-Do List

Your List only grows by the minute. From college applications to SAT’s to College visits, roommate selection. Yearbook photos and casual senior pictures should be part of the FUN of the last high school summer you have. Mix all of the to-dos of this time with the fun wants of a high school summer. The beach and fairs shouldn’t be stressed by the impending to-do’s of Senior Year. Check off your pictures NOW!
