Senior portraits are traditionally done with the boy cheerleader in the lead. The cheerleader is the person usually in charge of the cheerleading squad. This means that the leader will be constantly seen in the picture taking pictures for the senior. On one hand, this shows that the senior has authority and on the other hand it will make the senior appear juvenile and unprofessional. So what should a boy to do to be in charge of the senior portraits? Here are some tips.
It may be a good idea to have a second pair of eyes when doing senior portraits of either the boy or the girl cheerleader. A friend or close relative can help out in addition to the group senior portraits being done. The idea here is to present the senior as an equal to the junior. Whether the senior is the boy or the girl cheerleader there will always be an advantage to the senior. Not everyone will want to be the one doing the senior portraits. The group portrait will usually come out very good with just one person being in charge. Make sure to make clear directions so there are no misunderstandings.
I am sure that senior portraits will involve some tasks but make sure to divide them up amongst a group of people. The task of taking the photos of the senior should not be left solely to one person. Make sure to get the job done properly and efficiently.
