I often get this question when booking senior photos in Chicago – “When should I book my senior photo session?” ⁠

First and foremost, I can answer this question with another question – do you want to make your life easy? Who doesn’t, right?!

⁠If the answer to THAT question is yes, then you should schedule your senior photo session in Chicago NOW! Don’t wait until spring rolls around…

Let’s unpack that a little bit. Senior year is full of fun and activities all year but especially at the end of the school year. In the spring of your senior year, there are about a million things to be done and scheduled around. There is also the lovely Chicago weather to contend with and the fact that it’s not really feeling like spring until mid-May or early June. Pair that with Chicago Public Schools ending a little earlier the past couple of years, and private schools and schools in the suburbs get out even earlier! 

By then, whew, spring and graduation are here in an instant! So, you will want those gorgeous senior photos a little earlier (read: a lot earlier) for announcements and party invitations. ⁠By booking senior photos at the beginning of the year (think: summer or fall photos) and having them take place earlier in the school year, you can check that off your growing list of “to-do’s”.

PRO TIP: Summer and fall dates typically book up quickly!!

I get it, it may seem early to be thinking about senior photos but let me tell you – now is the perfect time to book! Scheduling early will give you your choice of many dates. Also, every senior who schedules a session in the summer or fall will receive a complimentary mini-session in the spring in Chicago. Yup, that’s right for a cap & gown, BFF, or college swag session – woo-hoo!

My best advice when it comes to scheduling your senior photos in Chicago? Don’t wait!

Even if you schedule a session now, it doesn’t mean the session has to take place this week, but the best part? You can lock in a summer or fall session date with plenty of time to plan and get excited!

So let’s start planning the session of your dreams! Who’s in?!
