Senior pictures and College essays are a lot more alike than you think. This repost is from a few years ago that was well received by readers and hopefully it will hit home with you too. I’m at the beach with my family soaking up as much downtime as possible with them. I hope you’ll be doing the same:)
Writing “the” College Essay
I’ve been in search of a college advisor to help with the personal essay portion of the college application. While speaking with an advisor today, she was explaining how she likes to pull threads eventually getting to the core of who that person is. What makes them tick and why…their true personality. She was giving examples, we discussed my son and she spent a whole lot of time with me (awesome!). Towards the end of our conversation
I blurted out, you do exactly what I do the only difference being is that I photograph their personality.
I told her I was a senior photographer and started to continue when she said, I know you! You’re Paige P. It was funny. BUT! the point is, a senior photoshoot and college essay are more alike than you think. Ok, senior pictures, done the Paige P. way, is a whole lot more fun!)
Photographing Senior Pictures
Like the advisor, I have a process to approaching senior pictures that captures all the gestures, looks and smiles that you’ve fallen in love with over and over for the past 17 years. With anything valuable, it’s worth putting in the time. This is not a transaction, it’s personal.
It’s time to get your senior’s personality on paper before they leave.
