In a rush for senior portraits…?
Senior Portraits Austin, TX | Dustin Meyer Photography. It happens every year. Tons of parents call me in a panic because so many things got in the way. But what are you supposed to do now? Graduation is so close and you still haven’t taken your senior portraits for your son or daughter. Time is running short, and there’s still so much to do.
Let me give you an example…
A mom called me up a couple of days ago. And just like I’ve said in previous posts, she was in a panic. So many things had filled up her son’s schedule all year long. But she was determined to get his senior portraits done before he left for college. Oh, and include them in their graduation invitations.
Where are all the guys?
Now, there’s a huge stereotype that only girls get their senior pictures done. And why wouldn’t there be? Every other senior portraits studio in town posts mostly high school senior girls on their sites. But what about the guys? Now, it’s not entirely the other studio’s fault that most of the photos they showcase are girls. It’s just that it’s not as important to a lot of guys. Some parents know that their son isn’t really into having their pictures taken. Or what’s worse… their son doesn’t care because he already got his yearbook photo taken earlier in the year. However, the moms have a much different opinion.
So this mom brings in her son…
…and she’s worried that he won’t cooperate with me. To be honest, sometimes I run into some difficulties with guys. Again, they’re just not that into it. So I talk to them and tell them, “Hey, if you do this for Mom then you’ll get a lot of brownie points.”
This usually works because the guys realize that it’s all about making Mom happy. And if they can do that, then the next time they need something all they have to do is show Mom that awesome senior portrait to her. Plus, if the parents choose a session that includes something like three different outfits, then they can compromise on which outfits he should wear. It sounds like a lot of work. But actually it’s pretty simple. Mom gets what she wants and so does her son.
And then what happens? The pictures turn out amazing. And both mom and son love them. That’s why our photos are featured in publications like USA Today and others.
So now what?
Earlier, I told you about the mom that was stressing out because they waited too long to get their senior portraits for their son. On the contrary, there’s still plenty of time. I always make it a point to take great photos and get them to mom and dad in a short period of time. That way, they get them before graduation. It’s that simple.
So how can we help you?
