Why Consider a Winter Senior Session?

So maybe you read the title of this blog and are thinking, “A winter photo session? Who does that?

Admittedly, while it may not be for everyone, you might be surprised to find out some pretty great advantages to booking a winter senior session that you hadn’t thought of!


Did you kind of drop the ball on getting yourself together in time to plan a summer or fall senior session? Maybe you procrastinated, or tried to find a photographer in the fall but they were all booked (because the fall to portrait photographers is like tax season to an accountant). Now is your chance to catch up and book in the winter. You are much more likely to find an opening with your photographer.

Do you love sweaters, coats and winter accessories and aren’t afraid to brave a little cold? Then bundle up all cute with your winter hat and go outside to take some photos. Photos in the city with streets and buildings look especially good in these! 

If you are cool with being spontaneous, you may even be able to arrange a tentative photo session with your photographer for if and when it snows. Snow photos can be so amazing and are totally worth the last minute planning!

On the other hand, winter sessions don’t have to be outside! You can find some pretty cool places and spaces to take senior photos inside that will still give you some great pictures. Coffee shops are a personal favorite of mine. Combine a session with your winter accessories outside for a while and then duck into a coffee shop, get something warm to drink and keep taking photos inside. These can be super unique and fun senior pictures!

Besides those options, there are so many amazing photo studios in Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas! You may be surprised at the variety of images you can get from a modern studio that look nothing like a traditional photo studio from back in the day. 

As you can see, there are quite a few legit reasons to consider booking your senior photos in the winter. The name of the game is don’t be afraid to personalize your photos and get creative with them no matter what season you choose. A good senior photographer will work with you to create a custom session that truly reflects you and gives you some really amazing photos!
