Including Family in Senior Pictures by Shawnalee Anderton

Something that seems to be trending recently is including family in part of the Senior photo shoot. I have to say, this is a brilliant idea. Not only do they get stunning senior photos, family portraits are created in the same session to be cherished by loved ones. And what incredible timing to do such a thing!

This is a time of transition. Often, the senior is going off to College or University very soon after. Or they may just be ready to move out. Certainly, they are now entering into the world of being an adult and this in of itself is change within the family. It is a time worthy of professional photos. Heirloom photos that will last a lifetime.

Do not be afraid of it taking away from your senior’s moment. I make sure that they get the limelight. It is no big deal to have family step in for a few shots and then let the senior have the stage!

Below, I have included one of each from senior sessions that included family in some way. Of course, there were many more individual shots of the seniors but I wanted to keep it to a digestible size for this post. Enjoy! And please reach out to me when you are ready to book or just want to find out more info!


Portrait Session | Stelter/Grigsby Family by Shawnalee Anderton

This shoot was amazing! What beautiful people they are. The connection they had with one another. We shot both at my home studio as well as their home. It was interesting to hear them talk about their experience. More than once, David, (dad) said it was a lot of fun. They raved about my makeup artist/assistant. In the end, they loved their images -I loved their images. I can’t stop looking at them. It was all so positive! I am truly honored to have worked with them.
