Did you know the Senior Portrait Experience is a longstanding Tradition dating back as far as the 1800's? In the United States, at least, formal high school senior portraits were documented as early as the 1880's, during which time senior portraits were created using a simple black or white backdrop. Similar to modern Senior drape portraits, Senior boys were photographed in tuxedos and senior girls were draped in silk or fur, and wore a traditional pearl necklace.
Although the fashion has evolved over time, having Senior Portraits created has been a very important and necessary part of history as long as photographs have existed. Senior Portraiture is a coming of age tradition that is not only important for parents, but the graduates as well.
Senior Portraits give the parents the opportunity to not only show their child how proud they are of their accomplishments by gifting them with a Senior portrait session, but to document achievements and history as well. A time to capture the miraculous transformation from them being an adolescent to an adult. To a parent, a Senior portrait session means being able to freeze the last moments of their child's youth and innocence, and document their first steps toward adulthood and self-growth. Often times these portraits are some of the most important and treasured possessions a parent can have of their child, because they may be the last professional photographs they have of their child until their wedding, college graduation or ever again. To parents, these portraits are heirlooms and become irreplaceable works of art as their children age.
To a High School Senior, Senior portraits can be an exciting experience to look forward to as they work hard toward graduation. It is also a time to document achievements and special occasions in their life. If the right photographer is chosen, having their portrait taken can be a huge boost of confidence and an experience they will never forget. It is their time to shine and show the world who they are as they take their big leap into the unknown world of adulthood.
Whether the parents realize it or not, most Seniors hope for or look forward to documenting their "lasts" with a Senior portrait session. This is the one thing they can forever call their own, and the one time in their life they they can completely be themselves. For nobody is exactly the same and a portrait captures the very essence of a person's soul. These will be THEIR portraits because nobody else can be them.
From their last time to go to class, last time to play their favorite sports, last time to sing in choir or play in band, their last drama production, last time to gather with friends or their last time to have the freedom to dress in a fun and carefree way. As all parents know, becoming an adult can be stressful, requires many sacrifices and requires much responsibility. This is your child's last moments to just be free and truly express themselves. That is something worth documenting! So whether you prefer classic and traditional portraits, prefer a fine art look or a more casual sporty look we offer it all. If you would like to document your sports awards, participation in extracurricular activities such as band or choir, have a farm full of animals you would like to include, are in Scholar's bowl, or have a hobby or goal you are working toward, are taking pilot lessons or love to roller skate, have a collection or interest to show off, let us know! You may even want to include your favorite local locations or foods, music and movies, or even if you want to dance under a rainbow, we will make sure your King Luxe Senior experience is one you will want to tell all your friends about!
As we all know, as we age we grow wiser and with that knowledge comes reminiscing. Oh how we wish we still looked like we did in high school (showing your children or friends your old Senior photos), recalling the memories of being on a sports or activities team and the comradery and feeling of belonging those activities provided, rehashing style and how it always seems to come back after a decade or two......remember those shoes your wore or style of hair you had when you were in high school? Remember the pet you had that was your best friend, your favorite book or your favorite hobby? Well, Senior Portraits are exactly how you can re-live those exact moments forever!! (I pulled out my Senior photos not long ago to show my husband and for some reason I had an infatuation with teddy bears, Girbaud jeans, big bangs, doc martins and plaid shirts lol).
Memories never matter until that is all we have left. Sometimes as we age, we need those little moments to get us through the rough patches in life or even to just brag to the guys about how buff you were in high school during the playoff game. Not to mention, the potential for much needed bonding time with your children/grandchildren in the future when you show them your/your graduate's high school Senior portraits!
