What Is An “Editorial” Senior Session?

One of the questions I am asked most frequently is “What is an “editorial” senior session? And how is it different from a traditional senior session?”  Well, I’m glad you asked!

Technically, an editorial session is a collection of images that tell a story.

Think of an ad campaign for your favorite clothing brand.  The images guide you through the “story” that the brand is telling through the clothing.  So, for me, as a Senior Portrait photographer, I want to tell the story of YOU – the Senior.  Our images will not be about selling a product, but will be about representing a mood, your personality, your fashion and the things that make you happiest.

Does fashion play a part in creating an editorial senior session? 

YES!  Blending elements of fashion trends, color and style all contribute to a more editorial senior portrait look. 

Do I style all of my senior clients? 

Technically, no.  I don’t go out and look for clothes that I’d like to photograph the senior in, but I do provide a complimentary wardrobe and style consultation for EVERY senior so that we can incorporate existing pieces from their personal wardrobe into their shoot.  I may put them together in a way that you’ve never done before, but they are YOUR clothes, which means they fit your personality and style!  Being comfortable in your clothes is a huge part of telling your story – you will look like yourself, your clothes will fit you perfectly, and will be colors that you enjoy wearing.

Are you ready to create the perfect, editorial senior session with me?  I hope so!  Contact me today for more information!
