What’s the Difference Between a Yearbook Photo and a Senior Session?
What’s the difference between a yearbook photo and a senior session? It’s similar to the difference between a headshot and a personal branding session.
A personal branding photography session differs from a typical headshot/portrait session in several ways. With headshots, the focus is simply you, usually shot from the waist up. Headshots are incorporated into personal branding sessions, but we don’t stop there. We delve deep into not just who you are visually, but telling the story of what you do and why you do it via detail shots, lifestyle shots, photos of you in action, you with your products, etc. The possibilities are endless and each session is customized to best reflect the type of business you run and the message you wish to convey about your brand through images.
Personal branding sessions are more customized than a headshot session, so there are lots of factors to consider including the location(s), outfits, branding colors your brand messaging, etc. Therefore, our pre-shoot experience will be more involved and in depth in the pre-planning stages. We help you decide how to best translate your brand into images that you can use on social media, your website and in advertising. Each brand is different and each session is personalized.
Similarly, with yearbook photos, the focus is simply you, usually shot from the waist up. Senior sessions delve deep into not just who you are visually, but also tell the story of who you are via lifestyle shots, photos of you doing what you love, wearing what you love in locations that you love, etc. As with personal branding sessions, each session is customized to best reflect who you are and pre-shoot planning is more involved than a yearbook photo shoot. We help you decide how to best translate who you are into images that you can not only use for social media but also for fine art keepsakes to remember this time in your life.
