I just want to talk to my high school kids right now.
I know some kids don't like having their picture taken, which is understandable. There are some kids who love being in front of a camera. Whichever category you fall in, you know at some point during your senior year that a senior photo session has to happen. Aside from being in front of the camera, you have to consider cost. When I was a high school senior, I remember lots of senior activities that required dollars. I was one of those kids who didn't have everything handed to me. I worked my butt off to pay for any senior costs that came about. I remember paying for my senior pictures out of my own pocket. Back in my day, that senior portfolio book was the thing to have. I needed it so my grandmother would have something to proudly display. When the day came, I proudly rocked my photo session....I even included my best friend at the time in some of the shots. BUT when I saw that pricing, I cried. I literally cried. I knew I couldn't afford it. But after I dried my tears, I buckled down and told myself I would work and save until I could pay for that exact photo package I wanted. And you know what? I did just that.
Try not to wait until the last minute. Your holiday break is perfect timing since most of you will have lots of free time on your hands. To help a little bit in advance, I'm posting a limited time high school senior special under the SPECIALS page on my site. Check back in a few days to see what special I came up with.
