I wanted to explain the importance and difference of Boutique Photography and School Studio Pictures. I wanted to help you all with some great information on what to know for your up and coming Senior Portraits, whether you get them straight from your school or hire an outside boutique photographer or both, it is always best to know the difference.
Depending on where you live, there is probably at least two different ways to have your Senior Photos taken…. A studio comes to your school and takes them or you have photos taken by the photographer of your choice, outside of school, and in some cases you do both.
Have you ever wondered what is the difference and why each are important?
Some high schools require everyone to have the same type photo taken for the yearbook. Which is why they bring in the studio and you go and have your photo taken just like everyone else. These photos are good for making the yearbook look uniform and classic and typically include Formal wear for the guys and a drape for the girls.
Some high schools allow students to submit their own photos to the yearbook. This allows students to be creative and express themselves.
But you DON’T have to let your school dictate how you have your Senior Photos taken. There is a THIRD option…..DO BOTH!
By doing both, you can have the classic, traditional yearbook photo and a photo session outside of school that really showcases your personality, your style and who you are today.
Just take a look at the breakdown difference from a Boutique Photographer, like myself vs the School Portrait Studio!
