For many high school seniors, graduation is an important milestone. Not only are they flipping the page to a new chapter in their lives, they want to remember this part of their lives with photographs. A lot of thought goes into senior portraits, from the location to the outfit to the hairstyles.
With this generation, it is ever so important to not have these images lost on hard devices. Take the initiative and preserve this moment in time for them in a senior photo book.
When putting together a graduation photo book a few things to keep in mind. Include the name of the school and the school colors into the design. Adoramapix Member and professional photographer, Kim DeLong of Studio 9 Photography, does a wonderful job of this. She shares some of her Adoramapix senior photo book designs with us.
Putting together the graduation photo book should be a team effort. Make sure to include the images the senior likes, this is their senior photo book and this is how they see themselves. It should reflect their personality, their hobbies and their interests.
The senior may want to build their own photo book. Encourage them to fill their book with their own mobile phone or point and shoot pictures. We have several templates which would be perfect for holding all those small photos. They will also be able to add text and captions. Have them make their own personalized yearbook filled with photos of their friends and shared adventures. They can even add speech or thought bubbles to add humor to the book.
