My perspective of instagram, and social media in general is that it’s a highlight reel. It’s showing you a little peek into my favorite images from a session. Showing you full senior portrait session is necessary though, and you should request to see one before booking with any photographer.

Let me explain why.

Most photographers can produce a great image, or even a few great images, right? But the days of ordering one or a few senior pictures are gone. Seniors want content to post that goes beyond a yearbook headshot. Parents want apps to show off their senior’s photos to the other bleacher parents.

So this is where consistency comes in. Did your photographer just get lucky with a few great images, or do they actually know what they’re doing in any lighting situation. Viewing a full senior portrait session allows you to see if your photographer is using the light properly, composition, posing, and overall aesthetic of the photos.

Here’s a few question to ask as you’re viewing a full senior portrait session.

  • Are the photos all the same?
  • Does the senior look comfortable, or tense in the photos?
  • Is the editing consistent?
  • Is their a variety in locations used or do they stay in one area for the whole shoot?

There’s no rules when it comes to how many photos a photographer will take and/or deliver. Quality vs quantity comes into play here. And it totally depends on what you prioritize as the client. Would you want 30-50 high quality photos with hand-edited retouching for blemishes, or do you prefer having 100+ photos with a quick preset & blur filter applied. There are photographers for everyone so be sure you look at a full gallery before booking!


This was an upgraded session we shot in Pittsburgh. It will give you an idea of what a full gallery looks like and how I pair up outfits with locations!
