Life is so busy. We're living in a culture that’s all about the ‘go, go, go’ philosophy, so we can find ourselves constantly moving, and caught up in a maelstrom of responsibility and stress. Mostly, that’s just how life is sometimes. But we can counteract the chaos with a bit of planning.
Take your high school graduation, for example: there’s so many things to think about, from prom to end-of-senior-year events or parties, and everything in between. With all of the senior year buzz, it can be easy to forget about your senior photos. But you don’t want to miss it - it’s one of the most important things about your graduation! The high school graduation itself is a milestone event that only happens once, and it’s so important to capture and memorialize it, because it’s something you’ll want to look back on years from now. And for such a special event, you’ll want to make sure you capture it professionally. It can take some extra work, but planning ahead with a professional photographer will ultimately make everything so much easier for everyone.
One of the big reasons why you’ll want to really get a headstart on your session is for your graduation cards/announcements, and for your party invites. Basically, everything that will need to be printed. It can be a lot of work and quite the headache to design every little detail of these cards on your own, so working with a photographer (like me!) that has print options available is the easiest way to go. Then, you can have a consistent style for the whole occasion, and you have the expertise and advice that comes from a professional. Missing out on precious planning time that could have been spent on your announcement cards results in a sloppy product. Avoid that completely by booking ahead to ensure that your vision for your senior session becomes a reality.
Apart from taking away the burden of rushing your session, and from handling your own prints, the biggest reason you’ll want to book ahead is so that you don’t miss your spot. The senior season can be incredibly busy, not only for the students, but for the photographers as well. The professionals will be swamped, and likely will have been booked out for months prior to the graduation season. If you don’t act quickly, your favorite photographer might not have any room for you. Settling for someone a bit more amateur might be great, but you take the risk of less-than-great photos of a very special, one-of-a-kind occasion. Booking well in advance will make sure you’ll get a session that you deserve, and that really showcases your achievements and hard work.
