Senior Photos | Crystal Lake Photographer

by | Senior Guys

No matter where you choose to go for your senior photos, your location should reflect your style and personality.  Think about all places that you like to hang out with your family and friends.  Are you outdoorsy? Like to be downtown?  Ride your bike through parks?  Wherever you choose let it tell a piece of your story and who you are at this time in your life.

I love that Peter chose to photograph his senior photos downtown Crystal Lake.  There are so many fantastic nooks and alleyways that were perfect.  There is also the metro station, and trains stop on a regular basis.  While it’s not safe to be on the tracks, we were able to get close and use the moving train in the background for a cool urban feel.

While we’re on the subject of locations…why choose just one??  You can bring more variety to your senior photos by choosing a second location.  As long as the 2 places are relatively close, we are able to keep that amazing golden sunlight for the entire hour of the session.  Our next stop for Peter’s session was a bike trail within his neighborhood.  As a kid, Peter used to ride along this pathway on his bike with friends.  I love that we could incorporate this spot into his photos.  It tells such a neat part of his story.

Are you ready to choose the perfect location for your senior photos?  I would love to work with you to find the perfect spot to tell your story and reflect your personality!  Click here to see more photos from senior sessions, and when you’re ready to plan your session, you can use the contact form here, to get in touch!
